Now it’s back to flipping through channels nightly. That’s the good thing about the Winter Olympics, they gave you a place to stop for a bit and wonder what gene is someone missing that they feel it’s a good idea to zip down a tube of ice head first on a sled, and be glad that it’s one that you weren’t missing. And, even though everyone says it’s about the sport and sportsmanship we love the medal count. Even though there isn’t a trophy for taking the most golds or the most overall it gives you a sense that one country is better than the others and this time around it’s Russia. They finished with 33 medals overall, including the most gold medals, with 13. Team U.S.A. was second overall, with 28. Now you can wait 4 years before you have to act like you care about curling.
OMIGOSH! If you have a case of the Mondays, you NEED to watch this video of a corgi trying to eat a sour lemon Warhead candy.
So last night there was so much to DVR…
I HAD TO DVR ALL THE THINGS!
Closing Olympic Ceremonies. Downton Abbey. The Walking Dead.
I got up this morning to watch a bit of the Sochi Olympic Ceremonies. I got to see awesome stuff like this…
Russia poking fun at themselves. Loved it. And then my DVR quit. No more space was left on the DVR.
I quickly went to The Walking Dead and Downton Abbey and found they were okay. Whew!
I don’t know what to do with my DVR. I want to watch all the recordings, hence, why I recorded them! Help! What do you do?!?! Give me some advice!
It’s Friday! That’s reason enough to be in a great mood, BUT in case you need hype-ing up OR if you are looking for a song that will just put a smile on your face, I’ve got you covered. These songs are great to add to the soundtrack of your life!
Here are the Top 3 hype songs for your weekend:
#3 Ain’t It Fun by Paramore – This song is all about being a grown up and having fun while you do it. Just play this song next time you’re grocery shopping or sitting in a dentist’s chair. It’ll make it a lot more awesome. Promise.
#2 Happy by Pharrell Williams – Try NOT to do a happy dance when you hear this song.
#1 Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO – This song automatically makes every mundane task EPIC (as shown below). Thank you Parks and Recreation.
What are some of your hype songs?
Remember “whatsuuuuupppp”?Everyone’s saying “WhatsApp” after Facebooks big buy this week. It’s an instant messaging service they bought for the bargain price of $19 billion. That’s about a buck for every message sent on it a day (20 billion messages sent per day) which is actually double Facebook messenger. Which makes sense. Most people post things on their friend’s walls on Facebook, they don’t send messages very much. That kind of takes the social out of it. But for $19 billion they probably could have bought a small European nation. Estonia is only worth $29B. I’m sure they could have found 3-4 people who could have written a message app for that much.
This is taking becoming a Barbie to a new level. Usually when women have dreams like that it involves a lot of plastic surgery to nip, tuck, suck and enhance…not make themselves as smart as Barbie who has nothing but air in her head. But, that’s what this woman in California is out to do. She she’s done all the plastic surgery but wants to take it a step further. She uses hypnotherapy sessions in the hopes that it will decrease her IQ. She says she actually wants to be brainless, and says it’s working as she’s had 20 sessions and is feeling ditzy and confused all the time.” Sounds like she was pretty dumb to begin with.
Jimmy Kimmel has done it again. Yesterday the big viral picture was a supposed wolf roaming the hall at one of the dorms at the Olympics. It was sent out by our luger, Kate Hansen, and apparently being a luger doesn’t pay and they can be bought for a cheeseburger and a flight out of Russia because it turns out the video was a set-up by Jimmy, just like the twerker that set herself on fire a few months ago. And, just like with that one, all the news channels were on it even security around the village was upped, so they bought into it, too. You know what happens to the boy who cries wolf on Twitter? It goes viral.

Don’t you just love it when entertainment/internet/pinterest/anyone brings together several random elements and they all happen to be your favorite things?
Like that time Kermit the Frog was on 30 Rock?
Or every pin on pinterest that involves raw cookie dough?
(can someone make this for my birthday please? )
Well that’s what Jimmy Fallon did the other night with Will Ferrell, “Ice Skating,” and Downton Abbey.
Thank you Jimmy….thank you!
Jimmy Fallon keeps winning with The Tonight Show!
Everyone needs to complain every once in awhile, right? I had a few minor annoyances that I would like to get off my chest. Maybe as you read these, you can relate and please feel free to comment and complain about some things if you like.
Here are my Top 3 bug-a-boos for the day:
#3 I’ve decided to get into comic books. I’ve read a few here and there and have decided (after reading Joss Whedon’s Astonishing XMEN) that I’m in love with them. It can be a difficult thing to get into. There are so many story lines and people! My bug-a-boo stems from Google. I’ve been relying a lot on Google to answer questions that I have a long the way and when it doesn’t give me an answer, I become annoyed. Google should have all answers to everything. It’s GOOGLE!
#2 I’ve been using the same face wash for a long time. I just recently bought more and for reasons unknown, they changed the scent! What?! I’m not going to just throw the stuff away (I’m not crazy…or wasteful). I just can’t wait for it to be gone so my face will stop smelling like a perfumed hamster cage. UGH!
#1 My phone decided to have a mind of it’s own today. You know how you can turn a smart phone sideways and the screen moves with it? Well, mine went sideways and never moved back. So I’m over here looking like I’m playing a driving video game with my phone trying to get it to move. I would include some screen shots here, but now I can’t even get it to move at all. Aaaand then my phone randomly decides to restart. My phone is sick. I look really dumb.
What are some of your bug-a-boos from today? Or recently? Share!
