Twitter / Twih-Turr / noun

def. 1. A free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets.
2. What's Happening?

Twitter and I have been forced to co-exist with one another, and I have to say I still don't get what the fuss is about. I think what's left out of the definition, is that you must have a Twitter friendly phone in order to really benefit from Twitter.

I think it might take some time before I find some benefits of Twitter to talk about!!

Bohemian Muppets, Video Conferencing is Counterproductive.

So for the anniversary of Freddie Mercury's passing,someone intelligent came up with an idea.
And since Queen and Sesame street are two things often found together this just seems natural...
Promise me that you'll stick it out until the end!
This video is a progression of greatness right up until the very end.
A true classic, especially for any Muppet fan!

Ode to the Sandwich

I believe, that the sandwich is the most versatile thing on the planet.
And today I've been inspired by my lunch, to stop and pay tribute.

Whether it be cheese between two slices of bread, or ice cream between two soft chewy cookies, the sandwich never fails to deliver.

It is very flexible, endlessly customizable and consistently delicious.

Named for the ambitious Earl of Sandwich, this classic was born when the Earl simply called for meat between two slices of bread, and a new era was born.

So today, I raise a glass to you, sandwiches of all kinds.

You rock, don't ever change.

Renovations Are Only Fun In Theory

Or at least if you aren't the one doing all the work!!

I've decided to remodel my blog a little bit, try to make it a little easier on the eyes.
If I'm speaking in html codes tomorrow it's not intentional. I've just been staring at this screen for far too long.

You know what else, just on a side note, the world has a cruel sense of irony.
As Mike Holmes would say, MAKE IT RIGHT! that's directed at you cruel universe. you.
Think about it. fo realz.

Maybe. Just Maybe, Guys Have A Point.

WARNING: This one's for the girls

Okay so I know it's hard to believe, but maybe guys have some serious insight when it comes to finding ways to spend time.

Girls, we're so stressed! We worry about everything!!! It's kind of true! And then guys talk about how we get angry so easily, we're so irritable etc. Well why is it that guys aren't irritable?! What makes them so laid back?!

With a shout out to Kiran
I have a theory.
Maybe, guys take more time out of their average day just to do something they enjoy.

I played Rock Band for the first time the other day, and as I sat there beating away at the drums (badly might I add) I said to my friend "Why don't we do this more often?"

Us girls tend to be a little hard on guys, escpecially when they sit around watching tv, playing video games, watching "gross mindless" youtube videos and other seemingly pointless things. But, maybe instead of giving them a hard time, we should be taking more time out for ourselves too?

Most guys that I know have some sort of hobby that doesn't really seem productive, or useful in any way. Girls we know we all have hobbies just like this, but why don't we indulge in them the way that guys do? Why don't we watch friends reruns for 3 hours straight? (or whaatevver floats your boat!). Maybe you'd rather have a spa night, why don't you?! I don't know why we don't, maybe it's a vicious circle, we stress, so we're too stressed to relax, so we just get more stressed? Maybe it's time we forced ourselves to do something just for us, purely for our own enjoyment... and I don't mean go to the gym, cause let's face it, that's productive... but more like buckle down and play a video game, or listen to music and paint your nails, just something for you.

I don't know what every girl likes to do with her spare..ish time, but maybe we wouldn't be so hard on guys if we took a page out of their book, be a little selfish for a couple hours, you're allowed.

An Inspiring Flash of PURE Brilliance!

So today I was thinking to myself.

"Self, I would like to reach out and read some blogs from the other sections, let's try and make some friends."
So me, myself and I, collectively sat down to explore the blogging world.
The take-off point? Kenton's blog, he seems to have absolutely everyone's blog on there so I figured why not.

So I scrolled through the masses and opened the ones with interesting post titles in a new tab, feeling brave, I also scrolled right on through the Ad majors' blogs as well (I hope I used that apostrophe right Petty!).

I came across one blog, Just Jeffrey, with very interesting subject matter, The Grinch!   
?!?!?!?! "Wait a minute," I thought, "What on EARTH is someone blogging about the grinch for around Halloween?! Isn't that the wrong holiday?!" So out of my intense interest I clicked on that link ..and my mind was blown away.

A Halloween Version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas?!?!?!?!?
"BEAUTIFUL, GLORIOUS" I thought loudly. And I won't ruin it for you, but really, give it a listen. It'll do itself justice.

I know my opinion really doesn't count for much, but I applaud you ad majors, applaud you, with a standing ovation. You inspired me today to be creative.. or at least to try.

And to you 'Just Jeffrey', you're kind of awesome.
