You’ll have to excuse me, I’ve been busy lately, what with these new zodiac signs and all. Ever since that story in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune came out that says the moon's gravitational pull "wobbled" the earth's rotation, creating a one-month bump in the star alignment, I’ve been all screwed up. After spending my whole life as a Scorpio, now I have to switch to being a Libra. Great! So all of a sudden I have to stop being “passionate, intense, jealous and volatile,” and start acting “compassionate and loving.” That sucks! Uhhh, I mean, yeah, sorry astrologists, I know this change must be really hard on you, too. Here, let me fluff your pillow for you – and SMOTHER YOU WITH IT! TAKE THAT, STUPID STAR JUMBLERS …. I mean, here, let me help you. Put your feet up and relax. Can I bring you anything? Pop tarts? Some hot cocoa, perhaps? I’LL THROW IT IN YOUR STUPID FACE YOU LOUSY TAROT-TURNING GOONS! … There, there, just sit back and relax WHILE I CRAM YOUR STUPID MOON CHART UP URANUS!!!
Well, you get the point. I’ve been a bit confused. So let’s take a look at what we’ve missed the past few days while I’ve been wrestling with my star alignment changes. Here are some of the latest stories from the news wires:
