They just keep on coming!
They just keep on coming!
Some of ya’ll have never watched a zombie apocalypse movie and it shows. Seriously, what’s the deal with the toilet paper??? Even my baby wipes were back-ordered!
Seriously though, these are stressful times and I don’t know about you but the informational posts I’m getting bombarded with on social media are just too much. The information is changing constantly and most of these posts don’t have a verifiable source anyway. I just can’t with them anymore.
The one thing I am enjoying on social media? The humour. This whole situation is so incredibly surreal that’s it’s nice to be able to laugh. I know I’m not alone in this either, so here are some of my favorites for you to enjoy:
And Some videos:
Or if you’re not from Wisconsin and brandy’s not your thing:
You may not be able to go out to a bar, so here’s some tunes to pair with your drink.
And just remember: Time has no meaning anymore so it’s OK to day drink.
Busy editing a backlog of photos… I’ve got actual projects coming soon (custom door/window casings! drywall!). In the meantime I hope these make you smile.
The first time I saw James Corden was on Doctor Who and I sort of adored him. This goes to show he is even more awesome than I originally thought!
Cookie Monster can step it a notch too.
Not gonna lie, Katie Perry grates on my nerves something awful (she was waaay over-played on the radio station they played at my job years ago). This is one of my favorite song parodies though!
Don’t know if as many people will find this one amusing–it’s definitely for the typography nerds! If you’ve never seen the music video for Lady Gaga’s Poker Face it’s definitely worth watching because they did a great job parodying the video AND the music.
I don’t actually love this song (it’s ok, just not in my personal music collection), but I think the video is pretty powerful. Related: a list of celebrities who aren’t a fan of crazed Photoshopping.
We had got our first snow of Friday. It was nice because it was so late this year (and it’s been unseasonably warm , but also crappy because snow. I’m already done with winter (I may be living in the wrong state…)
At least the sunsets have been pretty lovely lately!
If you’re also getting snow and not thrilled about it (or even if you are) here are some amusements to help get you through the week.
Homesick Candles. They’re supposed to smell like your state, but WI doesn’t smell like beer and cheese with a hint of cow so I have my doubts. On the other hand, MN basically just smells like winter so maybe they’re actually on to something. I’m also a jerk and thought ND should have just been “unscented.”
Burglary thwarted by bees. Yes, bees.
Do you Twitter? I don’t, but if you do and sometimes find yourself running out of ideas you can always check out Yes, That Can Be My Next Tweet. It’s also Bloggess approved. (and if you’ve never read her blog, you really should… unless you’re super put off by random taxidermy. Then it may not be a good fit).
A friend and I hit up a local craft fair this weekend. If you’re looking for handmade (and green!) gifts, some of my favorite vendors were Made by Liz P. (there’s not a lot in her etsy shop at the moment, but look at her sales history to get a better idea of her full range), Tired Ol’ Belts, Raju’s Arts, and Nest Pure.
I’m taking the week off because this week off because I’m in tight with the boss (aka, Me) and Holidays are hectic (plus it’s getting dark early and I have things I need to photograph yet). Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
Things that made me smile this week:
We may not all like the outcome, but I doubt there are many people out there who can deny that these Obama-Biden memes are the greatest thing to come out this election.
I indulged in some Retail Therapy on Friday and Michaels had most of their Christmas decor at 50% off! Some people may judge me, but Holiday Cat don’t care… partly because she thought pine cones and fake foliage might be edible. #festivecatisfestive I’m surprised this wasn’t a used hashtag yet and wonder if it will ever catch on. You might just see alternating pictures of a Siamese and white/tabby if you check in later because I have Plans.
Kirby Jenner’s Photoshopped Instagram photos are pretty amazing. And amazingly hilarious. They’re probably even better if you’re more in tune with pop culture than I am (I may live under a rock, but I like it here).
A trailer for American Gods showed up in my Facebook feed. Squeeee!
I forget why Matt showed me this post, but it’s hilarious. And chilling. And probably reasonably effective birth control. My sister’s comment was “What is that man doing with [niece]?!” To everyone out there who has survived small children… ya’ll gotta be superheroes or something.
A lot of people are surprised that I have an Android instead of an iPhone. But here’s why.
Hopefully that gets you through Monday at least.
