What About the News

Friday, June 26

Well, Stone found this website called “Friday 5” in which a person can answer five questions on a particular subject. It took a bit of talking, but Stone gave me permission to answer those questions.

So, here is my attempt at answering Friday 5 for June 26: News

1. Where do you get most of your information about current local events?

Stone gets a local paper but we love to get most of our local news from Stone’s friends. Stone claims what they should be considered editorials. Then again he calls them gossips. All I know is that the way they tell it makes it sound so much more interesting.

2. Where do you get most of your information about current national and international events?

We Varnark are only interested in items of humor and some items that may indicate activities of the Ygi (our and you humans’ nemesis). Most of this he gets out of the regional newspaper, television news, and the Internet.

The one story that caught our attention a while back pertained to that pack of Chihuahuas that went after that postal worker. That story allowed us to track down some juvenile Varnark who escaped from the Ygi. They did what they did best: Cause chaos. Oh, and no, the rumor that we thrive on chaos is not completely …. Uh, okay, they are true.

3. Who in your family always is most likely to know what’s up with everyone else in your family?

Oh, that would have to be me. If someone does something that is embarrassing, I seem to be the one Varnark who would find out about it. Then, I would share those nuggets of information to the Varnark community along with anyone else who would listen.

My motto is, “Got an embarrassing tidbit, let me know. I will let everyone know." By the way, do you have something embarrassing tidbit? Send it to me if you dare. (Evil Laugh)

4. Who at work (or school) always seems to know what’s going on?

Work? School? Who wants to work when there is so much fun to be had in this world. I think I hear an ice cream cone calling.

5. What other kinds of news do you try to keep up-to-date on and where do you get it?

When and where the next festival or fun activity will be held. If it is fun, I want to know about it. I get this from friends, cohorts, newspapers, Internet, television and the local gossip group. We also see human politics as hilarious, so we also keep up with it as well. Those editorial cartoons can be clever.

This was fun. I think I will try it again next week. Though my brain is hurting trying to think up the answers. Well, I will see you later. I hear a bowl of ice cream calling my name. Bye.
