Fishing from the couchA South Carolina man has fulfilled his long-held ambition of catching a fish while sitting on his couch. Jason Schall, 38, ran a fishing line from his living room to the lake outside while watching a college football game. Fishing buddy Jason Bennett said Schall “wasn’t on the couch three minutes” before the line went taut. Schall then reeled in a large redfish. “My life’s work is done,” said Schall.

Taylor Swift backs offTaylor Swift’s intense infatuation with 18-year-old Conor Kennedy is getting in the way of his schoolwork, says the National Enquirer. Kennedy’s father, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., didn’t object to the 22-year-old singer’s romance with his son during the summer, but is now “infuriated” that she keeps calling, texting, and visiting him at the Massachusetts prep school where he’s a senior. RFK Jr. “says his son should be focusing on schoolwork,’’ says a source, “and he’s warned Conor he won’t allow Taylor to be a distraction.” Swift is reluctantly backing off, the source says, to avoid angering the Kennedy family—”because she’s raring to join it herself someday.”

Dog tracks down hospitalized ownerA dog who missed his hospitalized owner traveled two miles across busy roads, a parkway, and unfamiliar neighborhoods, and tracked him down to the hospital. Zander, a husky mix adopted from a shelter, “was moping around for the days I was at the hospital,” said owner John Dolan of Bay Shore, N.Y. “My wife said he had water in his eyes and looked like he was really sad.” The dog slipped out of the house and somehow found the hospital. “He’s my boy,” Dolan said. “I think he missed me.”
