Top 3 Things: Silver Lining Edition

This past weekend, some lovely person (or people) decided to break into my car and steal my purse and my sense of security. Hooray!

 

BUT here are the Top 3 positive things to come out of this horrific experience:

 

# I had a handful of my business cards that are now in said thief’s possession. Hopefully they decided to drop them into random free food raffles at my favorite restaurants. That would be the kind thing to do, I think.

 

#2 In my last blog, I talked about a Toothless stuffed animal gift that I had just gotten from a co-worker. Toothless is gone now. Hopefully he will find some new adventures!

 

 

#1 All my family and friends are being really awesome to me during this time of extreme frustration. So that’s nice.

Super Bowl XLIX Half Time Show – Weird Al?

 

 

It cannot be denied. Weird Al Yancovic has had a STELLAR back end of 2014.

 

 

I know, Al. You have!

 

 

 

Well, now, a fan has started a petition to have Weird Al be the headliner at the next Super Bowl.

 

 

“Having him headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show would not only be overly accepted by the millions of viewers,” the fan writes, “but it would remain true to the standards and quality of the show business we have come to love and respect out of this prestigious event.” The petition has already over 4,000 signatures.

 

Weird Al

 

SPIN.com wants this set list, and I tend to agree!

 

And, in honor of the “Weird Al” petition, SPIN has put together a potential set list, with guests, for the NFL to consider.

SPIN‘s Dream Set List for a “Weird Al” Super Bowl Halftime Show:

“Perform This Way” with Lady Gaga
“Handy” with a new verse by Iggy Azalea
“Amish Paradise” with Coolio
“Eat It” with hologram Weird Al
“Another One Rides the Bus” with Queen as backing band and Adam Lambert as guest vocalist
“Girls Just Want to Have Lunch” with Cyndi Lauper
“Tacky” segues into “Happy” with Pharrell as all the special guests come out wearing the rapper’s signature hat as a grand group finale.

YYYAAAASSSS!
