Watch This! Wednesday - Ostrich!

Ok, so today's WTW is not exactly what I had planned. And I hate that I'm recycling a video from another blogger (thank you 2b1b) BUT, this might be one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Like ever. And I know I continuously say this but seriously I have the maturity of a 12 year old most of the time so if you understand that about me, you can understand why this week's Watch This! Wednesday is so funny to me. But do me a HUGE favor before you hit play and just turn your volume up. The weeping screams of a child just MAKE this video.

Reunited and it feels so good!

So as many of you know, I graced the town of G-vegas with my presence this past weekend and got to catch up with some of my besties! Words cannot express how legendary this weekend was. To sum it a picture:

What you are looking at here is a Tiger in Your Tank, sandwiched between a strawberry margarita and jager dispenser.

Watch This! Wednesday - TRUST FALL!

Happy hump day!!

Hope you all are having a glorious Wednesday like I am. Why is this Wednesday so glorious? Oh idk, probably because it's gorgeous outside, I have 2 days before I'm g-vegas bound and because it's WATCH THIS! Wednesday! Whatup!

Today's WTW is dedicated to a near and dear friend of mine, Daniel Tosh. Right, I WISH I was friends with that guy. If you all are not familiar with Daniel Tosh, he has a show on Comedy Central called Tosh.0, which is kind of like a funnier version of The Soup w/ Joel McHale, only it's for all things viral-video related as opposed to television. Today's video is kind of awesome, and I'll tell you why.

Drunk? Or a Kid?

So as many of you know, How I Met Your Mother is one of my favorite shows on TV right now, and I caught last night's episode online and that is the source of inspiration for today's post. Marshall (Jason Siegal) tries to make Ted feel good about a house he just purchased that is apparently failing the housing inspection miserably. So in an effort to keep everyone from beating up on Ted, he deflects their attention by saying "you know we've all done some dumb stuff in our time, but don't beat up on Ted, at least he didnt (insert story about driving the wrong way on the interstate here)." And that inspired a game called Drunk? Or a Kid? Which may or may not be one of the best games ever invented. And you better believe that I fully intend to pull this one out at the next party I go to and turn it into a drinking game. Marshall would tell these stories and everyone would have to guess if he did this story when he was drunk or when he was a kid. So...I'd like to share a few of my stories with you, my beloved readers and see if you can determine whether I was Drunk? Or a Kid? Here goes nothing:

Abbrevs are Totes the Best Evs

Ok, for anyone who knows me in a non-professional setting, you know that I'm a big fan of abbreviations in every-day conversation. I can remember back in high school when I found it extremely annoying that everyone and their mother came up with shortened versions of their names. So instead of Lindsey it was Linds. Instead of Jackie it was Jax. and on, and on. And I was probably PO'ed because my name was one syllable and therefore couldn't be shortened but, whatevs. Now, I have an appreesh for the abbrevs. Because people STILL continuously speak in this language and they are being 100 percent serious when they do it. And I have an extremely strong urge to make fun of these people in order to cover up any insecurities I might have about myself. Because they sound absolutely ridiculous. AND because that's what comedians do, right? They make fun of people and things to deflect any negative light that might fall upon them in order to feel better about themselves.

Watch This! Wednesday - Glee Edition

Hey Kids,

Sorry I've been MIA this week. I don't really have a good excuse except that I'm lazy and didn't have much good material to blog about (read: I was hungover and couldn't think straight most of Monday, thanks to Sunday Funday and Theresa's birthday on Saturday, whatup!). And the evenings have been filled with frolicking around the office and yummy places like Goldfish. I also got to dabble in a little Yacht Rock (much to my surprise) last night and despite what most people believe, I do have some semblance of a life so I don't spend all of my time on this blog. But, have no fear because Watch This! Wednesday is here!

Everyone has a Superficial Side...

Here's mine.

So Soph and I were g-chatting this afternoon, and ya know what really gets under my skin? Well, several things actually but specifically: when people are perpetually late. And it's not just late to meet me or one or two people (although that irks me too), I'm talking hold-up-the-whole-group-and-have-some-lame-excuse-as-to-why-you're-late people. I mean, with a large group of people, it's inevitable that one or two people will be running a little behind, but when someone is 30 minutes late and we lose a reservation over it? NOT ok. I typically tell these people to be there at least 20 minutes earlier than the rest of the group just so we all get seated on time. And not once has that person surprised me by being early so kudos to me for thinking ahead.

"Larry David" is my new best friend

Hey kids,

So yesterday afternoon, my boss pulled a Lumberg on me and asked me to come in by 7:45 this morning. Now, for someone who generally gets to the office at 9:00 on the dot, that's kind of asking a bit much of me...but again, he's the one who signs the paychecks so I guess I need to oblige him, right? Riiiight. The reason Dan asked me to come so early today was because he belongs to, what I call, a Secret Society of CEO's. In the real world, it's better known as Vistage, but I like the conotation "Secret Society" brings with it, so I'm gonna go with that.

Watch This! Wednesday

So, I think I want to create a weekly "column" if you will, dedicated to viral videos and dub it "Watch This! Wednesday". I have copious amounts of time on my hands apparently and, as you know, comedy is like breathing for me (and I don't say that to toot my own horn, quite the opposite in fact - it's more like I see the humor in things that are not funny to anyone else, I can't get enough out of comedians, funny showsblogs, news articles, and shorts). It's a part of my every-day life. It's how I deal with awkward situations and it gets me to 5:00 every afternoon. Soooo, without further ado...I give you the first weekly Watch This! Wednesday!!!!!!!!1

The Punchline

So I'm going to go ahead and apologize for yesterday's post. I'll be real honest with you guys. I have hardly slept in 4 nights until last night. I don't think I went to bed before 3:00am on Thursday, Friday or Saturday night. And Sunday night I wasn't in bed til almost midnight. And I think I was just completely out of it and I hardly remember writing yesterday's entry. And I had probably one of the least productive days at work imaginable. And I have no one to blame but myself for that.

This, on the Day AFTER Jesus Rose from the Dead

Happy Easter Monday everyone!

Ok I can't decide if I'm totally making this up or if this actually happened when I was in school but I feel like we used to have a 4-day weekend every Easter. Does that sound right? We had Good Friday and Easter Monday, right? Because I think that's why everyone would go down to the beach and get plastered on Easter weekend because they would spend that Monday traveling back from Panama City or some other STD-infested city. Is that right? Oh well. I'll just trust that I'm not taking crazy pills and that my high school used to give 4-day weekends (oh you episcopalians!).

April Fools Day

Ugh, I hate this "holiday". And it's not even a real holiday! It's not like I get to take off work so that I can frolick with my friends and play a bunch of jokes on them all day. Nope I have to go to work, just like any other week-day and I don't like it. I'm so eager for tomorrow! I can't wait for 5:00 today! I have had the ever-so-busy morning of catching up on personal emails and facebook and twitter, followed by my daily blog reading and a little bit of "work", also known as "billing" yuck. I technically should have been done with billing yesterday but since I worked for 11 hours straight I didn't quite get around to it. But at 5:00 today, my weekend starts and I couldn't be more thrilled!
