You know how everybody has that one cause that hits really close to home for them? This is it for me. I lost my cousin Kim in the Spring of 2008, when she was just 30 years old. The culprit? Breast Cancer. Help me fight this disease -learn more about Breast Cancer Awareness, and the American Cancer Society.

It's no secret that I love The Walking Dead. Okay, I'll admit it. I'm obsessed. But you can't judge me until you've watched it...and if you've watched it, you're probably just as obsessed as I am. Andrew Lincoln gave us some VERY juicy gossip about what will go down this Sunday night in the Season 3 finale...and let me tell you, It. Sounds. AWESOME. Here are some of the details from this month's issue of Rolling Stone: (WARNING: Spoilers ahead!!)
As the show closes in on the Season Three finale, two camps of survivors – one in a prison led by Rick Grimes, a small-town cop; the other in a walled town ruled over by a sly sociopath known as the Governor – are seemingly on a path toward all-out war. "We have two ghettoized communities fighting for their lives," says David Morrissey, the actor who plays the Governor. "If only they could join forces, but egos are not allowing them to."
Grimes, who is played by the show's star, Andrew Lincoln, has spent the better part of the season going bats*** crazy, chasing visions of his dead, adulterous wife. In recent weeks, though, he has emerged from his PTSD haze to guide a band of misfits through the challenges of end-times survival, a not entirely unwelcome development for Lincoln himself. "It's nice to be ass-kicking again," he says. "Rick is a leader. He needs to be in action, saving people."
According to Robert Kirkman, a writer and executive producer on the show, who also writes the graphic novels upon which it is based, the remainder of the season will continue at the breathless pace that it has built to so far. "The episodes are all about ramping up the conflict between the Governor and Rick," he says. "It's about finding out where allegiances lie. There are a few surprises in store as to who is going to be doing what on which side. Those reveals are going to be startling."
For the season finale, Lincoln promises, there will be blood. "Twenty-seven people die," he says. "It's safe to say it is all hands to pumps. It's a crazy season finale." It's a good bet that among those 27 casualties will be some central figures in the cast. Part of The Walking Dead's mojo is its willingness to dispatch even its most beloved characters. "The reality is nobody is safe," says Morrissey. "But that's the ticket we bought." Next season, Kirkman says, viewers should expect changes. "We're not going to slow things down, but if I had a criticism of Season Three, it would be that we didn't focus on character development," he says. "We're going to try to step it up a notch in that department." He points to Clear, one of the most well-received episodes this year, which focused on a road trip by Grimes, his son, Carl, and the samurai-sword-wielding warrior Micchone, as a template for the coming shifts in tone: 'We're going to focus on fewer characters per episode." Not coincidentally, Clear was written by new showrunner Gimple. Lincoln has had some discussions about where his character will go from here, but as he puts it, "I can't disclose any of them because they will kill me."
