Let's be honest: You quit actually working while at work about 13 days and six hangovers ago.

Thieves broke into 16 cars at a hotel on 5th Avenue South in St. Pete overnight. Sixteen. By breaking the windows. That's a whole lot of pretending not to see or hear anything.

A Brooksville man was arrested for animal cruelty after a complaint about dog bite led authorities to a dog so neglected and malnourished she'd been forced to eat her own puppies to survive. Do NOT click that link. Instead, donate what you can — money, time, materials — to a nonprofit that cares for neglected animals, love your own, and whenever you see mistreatment, shut that shit down.

And now some good news: The Bolts took down the Canadiens 4-3 in overtime! Tyler Johnson whacked the flatball past the masked guardian right into the ol' fishcatcher to win it. Yay hitty skating!

And now some Florida news: A Hernando County woman was arrested for domestic battery after she saw her ex-boyfriend kissing her mom, then climbed through a window to beat on him a bit. But doesn't every relationship have its "gotta whale on your mom-kissing estranged lover" rough patch? No?

And finally, authorities investigating a homicide in Arkansas want to subpoena a strange witness: Amazon's Alexa. They think an Echo digital assistant/speaker's mic might've heard something that could serve as evidence in the trial. We've seen the future, and it's a Law & Order episode that guest stars Fred Savage as a passionate digital privacy advocate.
