Seriously. Just stop what you’re doing and look at this
I was cruising Facebook yesterday and saw a link with a headline that said ‘Rowling Confirms Harry Potter Book 8″
…… and my heart stopped……
then I thought, now wait a second. If this were true it would literally be everywhere. Every news channel, every website, every radio station, EVERYWHERE. So I checked my excitement, did a little googling, and sure enough…. hoax. While I was sure that was what I would find there was still part of me that was disappointed. I would never hold my breath expecting Ms. Rowling to write another Harry Potter Book, but a small part of me is still hanging on the idea that it COULD happen. Never say never right?
Imagine you’re cleaning the attic and you run across a painting and think, “Hey, that’s a pretty picture. Wonder if it’s worth anything?”
…..and the you find out IT’S AN ORIGINAL VAN GOGH!!
Turns out this painting, “Sunset at Montmajour” had originally been owned by Van Gogh’s brother, sold to an art dealer, and then ended up in the hands of a Norwegian collector, who was told it was a fake. The collector shoved the painting up in the attic, where it sat until the current owners purchased it and found out it was real.
Officials wouldn’t assign a value, but a Van Gogh painted the same year sold for $40 million in 1987.
See these 3 girls?
Lovely little things aren’t they? Look like they should be spending their weekends at the mall, movie theater, or maybe snap chatting their friends, but no. They spend their spare time hunting demons and now they are headed to London to clean up the mess that Harry Potter has made!
Believe it or not, that is NOT the premise of a new fall tv show… well, actually it kinda is. Film maker Dan Murdoch is following the girls for an upcoming documentary for the BBC. Brynne Larson and sisters Tess and Savannah Scherkenback, of Arizona, believe the spells written in the Harry Potter books are real and allowing demons to possess the unsuspecting people of London.
I can’t…I just….but… Guh. There are no words. Except now I do kinda wanna watch the show. I’m a sucker for crazy.
Well, as you’ve probably heard Bruno Mars will be performing the half time show at Superbowl XXVIIXVVIXIXIIIV9erXXII (I don’t know roman numerals, ok?)
Looks pretty pleased with himself, doesn’t he?
My initial reaction was: Dear half time show committee, Say what now? <3 Brittany
Then I thought about it a little bit and I remembered that Bruno Mars has been nominated for like a bajillion Grammys and is a very hot artist right now. Maybe it makes more sense than I originally thought. It’s obvious the half time show is a way for extra viewers to be pulled in (the ones that aren’t all hip to the sportsball) and Bruno is probably a pretty good choice in that respect.
All I know for sure is that I’m a little crushed. I had my heart set on Justin Timberlake.
Like… seriously. I’ve got this feeling of panic that I can’t get rid of. The fall TV season is here and I haven’t seen an issue of the Fall TV Preview of Entertainment Weekly? I rely on this issue every year to help me decide my DVR schedule for the year. What am I gonna do without it?
Ok, perhaps I’m being a little over dramatic. It is just TV, after all, but I can’t help it. What if I miss something fantastic, because I never saw a preview for it and didn’t know I needed to be recording it?
Maybe the better question is, in this day of Hulu, Netflix, and online streaming why am I do freaked out about missing a show? I rarely watch them live anyway. All I know is since I realized the date this morning and that I don’t have my fall TV schedule set I can’t stop biting my nails and spazzing out just a little.
Ran across one of those links to awkward and sometimes gag-inducing photos today. A lot of them were the usual pictures that make the rounds, but some that were new to me. As Tim and I scrolled through the same question kept popping up. WHY? Just why?
Here are a few that drew a reaction from us. WARNING: Some things cannot be unseen.(also, there is some skin in these pictures, though all the actual personal R-Rated bits are covered)
I had a blast this morning at the United Way of Bartholomew County Campaign Kickoff Breakfast at Amazing Joe’s Grill. A BIG thanks to everyone who came out to help. Did you know that the United Way of Bartholomew County supports over 75 programs which help more than 20,000 children and adults each year?!? That’s AMAZING!
If you were unable to make it to breakfast today, but would like to help out there are a couple ways you can help. Of course, you could always make a monetary donation to the campaign, or you could volunteer your time by contacting Angie Huebel at 812-314-2706 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sometimes as I sit trying to write a blog I just start cruising the interwebs for random things to see where it will take me. I realize that this can be quite dangerous, but what can I say? I like to live on the edge.
Today my rando browsing somehow led me to a page full of Full House gifs. In my world this is a WIN and it led to an idea! Welcome to the first installment of GEE IT’S FUN: Gifs with Brittany (thanks Tim Green for the title)
Our maiden voyage is a trip down memory lane with the Full House Gang. Don’t deny your excitement. Just give into it….
Danny Tanner, those eyebrows are nice but they can’t compete with…
Have you guys noticed that John Stamos hasn’t aged a bit? Such a beautiful man. Don’t agree? Well then…
Oh yeah, and…
This is the point in my GIF search where I found inappropriate material, and even though I’d consider bleaching my brain to get rid of the images, just like Michelle with cookies I can’t forget about it…
So… Now I’m afraid to keep digging for Full House GIF gold so I’ll just leave you with this gem.
