It Is What It Is

As much as I would have liked to post for you on my lunch break today, I couldn’t…because I didn’t have one. ūüôā

So busy, but maybe I’ll post something fun tonight…as I’m getting drunk on red wine and playing on my Total Gym… ¬†Safe idea? ¬†Probably not.

Which Becky Was Better?

I have to show you this. I laughed my ass off.  The Roseanne stuff kicks in at 1:10.

Lecy Goranson was the original Becky. ¬†And Sarah Chalke filled in intermittently. ¬†I have an affection for both of the Beckys. ¬†I mean, Lecy Goranson was the original, and the way that she said, “MOTHER!” just killed me every time. ¬†But you have to love Sarah Chalke–a kinder, sweeter version of the mouthy little Becky. ¬†But her face isn’t nearly as expressive. ¬†And the truth is that I’m just not sure she ever really fit into the family.

I did like her as the neighbor on Halloween though…

Which begs the question:  Which Becky was better?

My Trends Went to Twitter

Another event spawned by my preemptive trendiness.  Deja vu?

Pretty sure I had a 1990’s series going for awhile. ¬†And this one. ¬†And this one. ¬†And this one. ¬†Oh, and this one.

Also sure that I’ve been doing lists of things that are attractive for awhile, too. ¬†And here. ¬†And here.

Twitter, are you following me?  If so, QUIT IT.

A Simple Day and Some Fun Pictures

Today has been simple, which is something I cannot say about the rest of the days in this week.

So let’s keep it simple here, too, and I’ll just show you a picture that never fails to make me smile (and make my ovaries glow):

Mike and Baby Jax.  Both have come a long way since this:

Aren’t they both such cute little nuggets? ¬†Happy Friday!

Tour de Bureau

Alright. I have an office, right? ¬†I have an office that I share with two other people. ¬†I have my own little corner (it’s a big office) and two walls to make completely my own. ¬†Not to mention some serious desk space.

So how the heck do I decorate it?

Here’s what I’m working with:

Cute, isn’t it? ¬†Let’s take a closer look. ¬†I see a Ron Jon coozie, a Webster’s Reference Set that I just realized is upside-down. ¬†Hey, there’s my iPod¬†that I bought in 2005 and only managed to get all of my music on it about two years ago… ¬†See that monkey hanging upside-down? ¬†He screams. ¬†And yes, that is a Sesame Street Rosie the Riveter.¬† And the guy hanging on the wall holding my¬†tassels? ¬†Well he deserves a closer look:

Bought in 1999 because he looked slightly like a guy I had a crush on. ¬†He’s bendy and he holds my tassels from graduation. ¬†The purple and white ones are from high school (one was just a prop) and the two white ones are from Ashland University and UNCW.

I’d hang my diplomas, but I don’t want this to seem like a doctor’s office.

Moving on.

A Natasha Wescoat print (I’d love to have a real painting if any of you would like to buy it for me) and a nice little picture from my friend’s daughter Kaylee.

And this–I don’t know who this character is, but she’s from Sesame Street¬†(hold on, I’ll Google her–it’s ROSITA!) and she is part of an awesome campaign to get kids to put down the pacifier. ¬†It started as a prank pulled on a friend, and then all the sudden it was back in my office, and I’m a softie for Rosie the Riveter.

What else could I put in my office, ya’ll? ¬†I know it could be better.

Deal Breakers are National News!!!…or at Least News

Remember that time I told you I could tell the future?  I did it again.

Well, I read daily–all of it–because “it’s not news, it’s Fark!” ¬†(Now I bet you’re figuring out why I say “farking”¬†all of the time.)

So has people submit odd news stories they find throughout the day with snappier, funnier headlines than what actually happened.  There are some doozies.  They also hold open threads sometimes.  The one yesterday that sparked this blog post?

What kind of thing do you consider an immediate deal breaker when you’re on a date with someone?

Trendsetter?  You bet your ass I am.

So here are some Fark Deal Breakers, mixed in with a few more of my own (in Italics) and sans-gender (OMG):

  • Reading (and enjoying) Twilight, The Hunger Games, The DaVinci Code (that last one was for you Dzanko)
  • Eating like a pig
  • Slurping through a straw
  • Having sexual organs that are not representative of the body (i.e. a chick with a dick, a dude without one)
  • Wedding rings (How did I miss this? ¬†Because wedding rings are sexy…)
  • Follows the WNBA
  • Rude to the wait staff
  • B.O.
  • Being so “green” that I can’t do anything without ridicule
  • Ordering for me
  • Immediate talk about medical ailments they have or that run in their family
  • Talks too much about an ex
  • Can’t hold a conversation
  • Poor hygiene

I’m telling you people, all you have to do is keep reading to stay ahead of the trend. ¬†ūüėČ

Retro Ads, Courtesy of Tom!

I’m lucky grateful that my coworkers–or anyone for that matter–read my blog. ¬†My friend Tom found a gold mine database of retro ads that just make my little ole heart flutter.

Here are a few of my favorites (all courtesy of the AdAccess archive at Duke University):

Truth is, ya’ll, I’m busy today, but I thought you’d enjoy seeing this!
