Facebook is ruining me. I've said it before in regards to my ever declining empathy for extremists who bitch about everylittleeffingthing or those who gross me out with their incessant proclamation of love and blessedness on a tri-daily basis, but now it's getting serious. Weather forecasts of any noted severity turn my Facebook home page into a who's who of Chicken Little's giving me more conflicting dooms day exaggerations then I can keep up with.

Last night, for example, at least 10 people in the KC metro area would like to have had me believe I was going to wake up to 18" of ice and 42" of snow barricading me in my home. When in reality there was no snow and no ice, just some light misting all day long and a cold temperature of 28 degrees.

Instead of hiding these "friends" or not reading Facebook on an hourly basis or watching the weather reports on tv for myself, I choose to bitch about these people on my blog and avoid the grocery store so I don't chance being categorized as a "preparer."

Apocalypses were designed to take people like me out. There is a possible foot of snow lurking in my very immediate future and I've chosen to meet it head on with one roll of toilet paper, a package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough and a bad attitude. This should be fun.

If I get a paid day off from work because of the snow I promise to do an equally entertaining blog that is pro-snow.

Music Monday

Back when I was in college, I had a professor that made us read a book about a Subaru advertising campaign. I can't tell you anything I learned from that class or book now, but I do love their latest commercial that features this song from Sean Hayes.

I wonder if I would have retained more in college if youtube had been around...

Music Monday

Becca introduced me to the song "Home" by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros last year in our great cd exchange. Here is the cutest cover of said song...ever.

Music Monday

It's the first snow of the year and the metro's finest are all over the streets. For the past two hours I have been regreting not going into the education field so that I too could enjoy a snow day, but a little Mark Miller and Sawyer Brown always make me feel better.

Happy snowy Monday!

Happy Jersey Shore Day!

My most embarassing guilty pleasure is back for round three. If you ever have a bad day and need to feel better about yourself, just watch these fools. I mean, Snooki, the little one with the hair poof, is walking next to the beach hammered drunk and is asking people where the beach is. That's just good entertainment, folks.

Music Monday

Welcome to the first Music Monday of 2011. There's no real special story here, just heard it this weekend whilst celebrating the new year with friends and wanted to post it on here.

It's thug life meets Scranton, PA, so if you don't like or get in trouble for using big boy language, listen at your own risk :)
