A Safety Innovation

are we there yetDriving when you’re tired isn’t safe, just ask Tracy Morgan. A company has invented the Harken which is a seatbelt with sensors in it that monitor your heart rate and breathing and will sound an alarm if it thinks you’re falling asleep. Or, you could just drive everywhere with a 5 year old because it’s nearly impossible to sleep through them asking “Are we there yet” every 20 seconds!

The Weekend’s Here… Grab a Cold Beer!

BeerMugBourbon may be booming and more wineries are cropping up all over the nation, yet we still like beer the most. According to Gallup, 41% of drinkers say they typically drink beer, compared with 31% who go for wine and 23% who reach for liquor. It’s the biggest gap between beer and wine in six years, and except for 2005 when wine outpaced beer, beer has been the drink of choice since the ’90s.  And I’m certainly doing my part to keep it that way!

10 Things NOT to Buy Your College Bound Kid

Got a kid you’ll be dropping off at college this semester? Avoid the cliche of buying these items. The probability of them using these things are nill. [They'll learn probabilities in their math class.]

 

10. A printer.

Most assignments can be emailed. Most colleges have computer labs with low cost printing.

 

 

9. Tablet

The best thing to take notes with is an old fashioned laptop PC. Don’t waste your time with this one.

 

 

8. Expensive Bedding

 

What they have already is just fine. It will be destroyed by roommates anyway. Wait until after college to surprise them with Egyptian Cotton 900 thread count sheets.

 

 

7. HD TV

Let’s face it. They’ll netflix it, hulu it, or steal it. On their laptop.

 

 

6. An Iron

 

Moms. You’ll do their laundry. You’ll iron anything on their trips home. Buy yourself a new set!

 

 

5. Clothes.

Two words: Freshman 15.

 

 

4. High End Lap top

Most students won’t use all the processing power in their laptops for tasks such as word processing, social media.

3. Mini Fridge

Who seriously used this after college?

2. External Hard Drive

Chances are they know about cloud. And they’ll have a hard drive connected to the university most likely.

1. New iPhone

Don’t. Don’t do it. Wait till Christmas. Or pass their exams. Which ever comes first.

America’s Got Talent’s Top Acts

 

Last night, I almost threw my phone at the tv. While watching America’s Got Talent, one of my favorite male singers didn’t make the cut.

 

That’s Justin Rhodes. He’s a singer. A really good singer.

 

 

 

Aparently, his final audition was crap, according to the judges.

 

 

Sad Miley

happy clap

 

BUT NO! HE WAS CUT!

 

What Did You Say?

 

He was cut! But THIS guy made it through….

 

 

 

Woah!

OMG WHAT?

Gasp

 

Yup. Me, too. Bad call, America’s Got Talent Judges. #BringJustinBack

This Music Video.

You guys. This is my favorite thing right now. It has everything I never thought I wanted: track suits, fake mustaches, Kristin Stewart lip-syncing, Brie Larson doing her best boy-dance and Anne Hathaway moving her arm as a clock does when a lyric says, “ticking”. Plus so much more!

Watch for some giggles. :)

…not to mention the song is so rad, I can’t stand it!
