Tuesday Tid Bits...

In the news:

Okay, okay I get that Kate and Will are royality.  I even get that they have the right to a certain level of privacy and safety.

I get they are big shots...VIP's...All Important...but...

the phone call to the hospital by those Australian DJ's was meant as a harmless prank.  Or what should've been a harmless prank. Until...

the nurse kills herself!

Over a misguided phone call????

Come on, I know I'm not the only one who finds this a wee bit weird?

Why would anyone go to such extremes as to off yourself because of an mistaken phone call?  Especially leaving behind a family?  Wouldn't you think your loved ones would be more important?

ESPECIALLY when neither the Royals nor the hospital were blaming you???

I feel extreme sympathy for family and more than a little pity for the nurse, but...

Donja think someone would have to be just a teeny,tiny bit unstable in the first place?  Maybe not, but...

I won't be surprised if the news comes out that there was much more going on than meets the eye.

And NO!  The DJ's careers shouldn't be ruined over this hoax!

Some Christmas Trivia:

If you received all the gifts mentioned over and over from the 12 Days of Christmas song, you'd receive 364 presents?  Why not a whole years worth...uhmmmm...

The average shopper walks just over 8 kms around stores, malls and parking lots? No wonder we get so darn tired!! That's probably more walking than many of us do all year!

1 in 3 men will wait until Christmas Eve to finish their shopping.

1 in 6 men would like to quit all the "gift-giving" nonsense!  Wanna bet it's the same guy who waits until Christmas Eve?

Last, but not least. If you think your gifts cost a bundle; what if you were to buy all the 12 Days of Christmas gifts mentioned just once??
