What is happening?

I feel like every time I have gotten on Twitter this week there has been a new trending topic about RIP _____. I got to work on Thursday and saw (on Twitter) that Farrah Fawcett had passed away. I got home from work and went out to the pool. When I came back in I took a shower and Ashley started banging on the door and said she was opening and told me Michael Jackson had died! Then I made the mistake of trying to call Jonny from the shower to tell him. Now I didn't have the phone in the actual water but it still got wet and got a little messed up. When I got out and finally got a hold of Jonny he turned on the news and said Michael wasn't actually dead yet. So I watched until the news got the news of his passing. I was a little disappointed that radio stations didn't play his music non stop for the next 24 hours but at least E and VH1 did tributes to him. Then today I was on Facebook and found out Billy Mays had died. I then went to Twitter and low and behold he was a trending topic. So really this has been a crazy week and a sad one. I feel like over the past two years lots of famous people have died pretty unexpectedly- Anna Nicole, Heath Ledger, Bernie Mack, Natasha Richardson and now these three.
A side note. If you ever get your phone wet put it in a bag of rice and it dries it right up. That's what I did and my phone is all better now!

Unless you get salty-ocean water on it...I did put mine in rice, and it didn't work...:(. Oh, and Ed Macman (I don't know how to spell it) died earlier last week too!! It is weird!!
