Tur-Tur-Key-Key Day

Ah, Thanksgiving. My favorite holiday of the year, followed by my favorite non-holiday, day of the year, Black Friday. You all remember the things I love about Thanksgiving, right? Well this year, I'm super excited as always, to celebrate another year of delicious food and the tryptophan hangover. But fortunately or unfortunately, this will be a somewhat untradtional Thankgiving for me there. Let's review the good and the bad things about this year, shall we?

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Well, I'll be damned if I ever figure this out. The games we play and the crazy hoops we jump through for the guy or girl that we think we're crazy about are beyond me. I find it funny that when we're not looking for love it falls in our laps and when we actively seek it out, it's one dead end after another. Why is that? And why is it that some women manage to NEVER be single, and some women can't do anything to get out of their dry spells (unless they resort to prostitution...which isn't an option for any of us with a moral fiber in our bodies)? These questions go through many of our minds on a weekly basis. And I think part of it is society's pressure - our parents were married at 22 (or younger in some cases) and here we are at 25...why don't we have husbands yet? Hey-zeus Christo, mom, get out of my head!

The Friend Zone Part 2

Well, here we go again with The Friend Zone. You'll remember in my last post, I talked about The Nice Guy and how to move out of the Friend Zone if you find yourself in such a situation with a girl you've fallen for. But today, I'm actually going to hit on something different. Last week I stumbled upon a new site called Dudeships and found it to be quite interesting. Written by a few guys, this particular blog is adamant about the fact that guys and girls CANNOT be friends - as clearly displayed in the classic When Harry Met Sally movie back in the 80s. And to some degree, I can agree with it. Instead of being "friends" with the opposite sex, these bloggers believe there's such a thing called a "dudeship" in which they define different levels of relationships with women who are not their girlfriends.

I know I can be long-winded at times but....

If you're a regular reader, you know that I have a tendancy to ramble at times. I'm sorry. I can't help it. Sometimes I just can't seem to put my thoughts into the most simplistic and concise sentences. Yet you dear readers still humor me, read the whole thing and hopefully by the end still feel compelled to comment and for that, I thank you. So, in the spirit of all of this thankfulness and appreciation, I'm going to cut right to the chase for this post. Over the weekend, around 11:30 or so Saturday night, I received the LONGEST match email I've ever received. Ever. And I simply HAVE to share it with you guys. Enjoy!

match say we''re compatible i tend to agree, you?

"Bros" vs "My girls"

So my week's kind of been shot to hell thanks to Aaron Karo. Seriously, I don't know how I've never heard of him ONCE over the last 13 years. This baffles my mind. Because I'm usually pretty savvy when it comes to what's hot on the interwebs. I mean, hello 2003 Ebaumsworld and Who could forget the initial viral videos that hit the internet - beginning with the Ally McBeal dancing baby (probably in 1997), to the Aisha video and The End of the World animation in 2003, Bubb Rubb & Lil Sis, to the more recent Bed Intruder Song (Hide ya kids, hide ya wife), and every other thing that's gone viral over the last decade? They're all classics. Everyone shares them. And yet somehow, on my visits, the best-designed beer pong tables took precedent over the amazing Aaron Karo. WHY?!?!

Ok, the important thing is, I've found him now. And I've been getting a lot LESS work done this week as a result. Today I read a great Rumination entitled "Boys" (Rumination #86 to be precise) and Karo makes an interesting point that I want to expand upon. Here's the following entry from Karo:

Roses are Red

Morning fellow hot messes!

So I've recently been following My So-Called Online Dating Life (if you follow my other bloggers to the right, I'm sure you've noticed) and this single 30-something brought up the long-distance e-dating predicament. Ugh. As if online dating isn't hard enough - you want to throw 2000 miles between you as well? NOT my idea of a fun time. You'll remember a while back when I had some Romeo from Illinois contact me about a band that he was trying to promote and his girlfriend had just left him for someone on facebook, right? Well, as I was commenting on My So-Called Online Dating Life this morning, I received another interesting email from a potential online suitor. It's short and sweet, and by sweet I mean, weird and creepy. Here goes!

HST: The World is the Best!

Any avid follower of my blog knows that I'm a HUGE sketch comedy fan, and an even bigger Harvard Sailing Team fan. Welp, they've just released a new video on Youtube and this time, they've taken a little bit of a different approach to their normal routine. The've created: a SONG!

I'm in love with this already - mainly because it kind of reminds me of "We are the World", "What's Goin On" remake, and all those other songs for a cause that have been performed at various music awards shows over the past 15 years by about 25+ artists each singing one line and then coming together in a chorus.

Newest Obsession

So...I don't know why I'm just now stumbling onto this...because apparently it's been around for 13 years and I'm like WAY behind but, whatevs. I've found it, I love it, and I'm not letting it go. Aaron Karo: Ruminations. This guy is genius! I ruminate ALL the effing time!!!!!!!! And the funny thing about this guy is that he essentially ruminates like status updates. Some are a little more detailed than others, and wouldn't qualify for the 140 character twitter updates, but they'd fit for FB. But not like status updates that you and I would write - more like Taco (from The League) updates. Some of it is pretty random but everything he talks about is something that when you think about it you're like "huh, that's so right!" Maybe that's why Ruminations are defined as "Writing what you're thinking". Anyway, if you haven't checked out Ruminations, I suggest you do. It's genius, I tell you. Pure genius!
