I would never make it out alive

We all have different reasons for working out. Some are looking to lose weight … others are looking to stay in shape … while others are doing it just to stay alive …

I love these ecards, they are hilarious. And this one just really got me going this morning. True story that if I was in the hunger games, I wouldn’t have made it out alive. So I guess my new goal for working out is to become Katniss, so when the world someday becomes a hunger games scenario, I will be ready.

I need to stock up on bow and arrows, spears, and climbing rope. And learn which berries are edible and which are on the do not eat or you will die list.

Hey buddy, how about a blinka

So we have all seen the MILLIONS of spin-offs from the “Sh*t girls say” videos. If you don’t know what I am talking about, check it out on you tube.
So of course because that was such a huge hit, everyone and their mother decided they needed to make something similar. There was sh*t guys say, sh*t nobody says, sh*t white girls say, etc. You catch my drift. Well then people started making ones like “Sh*t New Yorker’s say”, and Sh*t people in LA say”.
Well last night I saw for the first time “Sh*t Boston Guys Say”. And being a lifelong resident of Massachusetts / Boston, I found this hilarious. These guys nailed it on the head. And can I just say, that I am pretty sure I say “hey buddy, how bout a blinka” every single day when I am stuck in Boston traffic. “You gonna let me in or what” is another commonly used phrase.
So give this video a shot. If you are from Boston or just Massachusetts in general, have ever visited, or know someone from here, you will find it dead on.

Last minute gift ideas for kids

So Christmas is only 10 days away. When did that happen? I don’t know if it is because Christmas Eve and Christmas Day fall on a weekend – but December has seemed incredibly short. Thankfully, A and I were able to get almost all of our shopping done before Thanksgiving. But I know this is not the case for most people.
I am sure there are plenty of folks out there right now that are scrambling to find some gifts for their children, niece/nephews, cousins etc.
How about .. an old banana? an onion? half eaten sandwich? a hammer? a stapler? It’s been done. And they are all things that are probably easily obtainable. Just a few nights ago, Jimmy Kimmel ran a segment on his late night show, called “YouTube Challenge – I Gave My Kids a Terrible Present”. It is pretty hilarious. Some of the kids are pretty cute – while others seem to be super brats. But it is a funny idea nonetheless. So if you are looking around for a last-minute gift, specifically a terrible gift, check out this clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Did she order the lobster and filet mignon at dinner or something?

For anyone with a smart phone – you know what the term autocorrect means. It has probably made you look like a fool on several occasions.

For those of you that don’t know what autocorrect is on cell phones, the Autocorrect feature remembers what you type. In addition to comparing to a dictionary list of words, it also compares what you type to what you have typed in the past. It can be convenient when you are typing quickly and start to spell a word incorrectly, autocorrect kicks in and usually knows what you were trying to type. I say usually, because sometimes it comes back at you with the most ridiculous things.

I just recently found this, top 25 funniest autocorrects:
Damn you Autocorrect

And I literally was crying I was laughing so hard. I may be immature, that’s fine. But I have had my fair share in some ridiculous autocorrects so I just find this absolutely hilarious.

I think this was probably one of my favs..

Office Space

So here at EC it is one of the most stressful times of the semester. No, it’s not finals times. It’s good old registration time.

I remember those days like yesterday. Sitting in front of a computer waiting for your time. When the clock hits, you try getting in, along with everyone else, and just sit there, watching the internet clock. When you finally get in, you realize every single top choice you had is already full, and you scramble to find other classes to get into.
You feel like this:

I never thought I would have to go through that again. But then I decided I wanted to enter the world of higher education, and get into advising. And now I join my advisees in the world of registration. I had tons of advisees today who couldn’t get into their classes because they were already full – or who just couldn’t get into the system period because the servers were jammed with traffic. And this not only stopped them from registering, but it also prohibited me from getting any work done. I was forced to write this post while at work. It’s not my fault really.
It was either blogs .. or this:


Office Space – fantastic movie. If you haven’t seen it, and you work in some type of office setting, you need to watch it. My past two jobs have literally been straight out of the movie. No joke. The last place, they decided to hire more people than they had room for, and I moved up a position, so they thought it would be cool to move me to the kitchen, and give the new person my desk. They move Milton to the basement, and me to the kitchen – not sure which is worse. There was cake for someone’s retirement (not that I wanted a slice), but I didn’t even get offered a slice because they ran out. I was literally living the Office Space. Thankfully – EC is nothing like that and I love my job. But the Office Space is still a ridiculously funny movie nonetheless. Make it a must see this weekend.

72 Days

So here it is. My first post. No one ever enjoys their first time – so bare with me here as I try and make it through this.

Not sure where I am going with this blog – I guess it’s going to be a complete randomness for now until I figure it out.

My thought for the day. 72 days.

What is 72 days? A little over 2 months. Roughly  10 weeks or 1728 hours. 6,220,800 seconds. Or, to put it simply, 1 Kardashian.  Its a new unit of measurement really. Like 1 year = 365 days … 1 Kardashian = 72 days. Kim Kardashian managed to be married for all of 72 days before deciding that she needed to file for divorce. Now I hate the Kardashians. I have never watched any of their shows, can’t even tell you what any of them are called. And I really hate talking about them because they do what they do in order to get attention, and this is me giving them attention.  This will most likely be the one and only time you will hear me say the name. The reason I am even discussing this, is because I myself, have now offically been married for 72 days, or 1 Kardashian. Woo. I couldn’t be happier – and can’t even imagine all of a sudden saying “Honey, ya know, this just isnt working out for me. We gave it a shot, good luck with life.”

So in honor of my 1 Kardashian Anniversary, I give you

7 Things That Have Lasted Longer Than Kim Kardashian’s Wedding

1) My marriage (well tomorrow – but I’d bet my first unborn child I will be making it to day 73 of my marriage). I love you A   🙂

2) 1995. Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men came out with the hit “One Sweet Day”. The hit was gold, and made it to #1 on the Billboard Charts for the most weeks – 16 weeks to be exact. And that’s six weeks longer than Kim could hack the marriage thing. 72 sweet days was just too much for Kim…

3) The NBA lockout. The lockout started July 1st, and there is still no idea when the season will start, if at all. I find this quite ironic – being that Kris is a basketball player. What is he doing – now that he is not pretending to be married nor on the courts. Hmphh.

4) Kim and Kris actually made their own countdown. They were actually engaged longer than they were married for. I am sure that not many out there can say this. They were engaged for a whopping 85 days. Good thing they had E! to plan the entire thing. Because any bride out there knows that you can’t plan a wedding in 85 days – or at least not the ridiculous wedding that she had.

5) “I’ll never let go”… Blockbuster hit Titanic was the number one movie for 105 days. Looks like Kim and Rose let go of some promises. Kim said until death do us part .. what she really meant was 72 days. And Rose  said I’ll never let go .. but what she really meant was I won’t let go until I see some boats and then I am outta here.

6) Average sea-monkey life span – 730 days. The sea-monkey has us all beat. 730 days!!!

7) This last one just blows my mind. A dance marathon of 157 days. That’s a whole lot of dancing. Apparently it’s the longest dance marathon ever. It’s fantastic. And even better – this was back in the 1930s. That was probably the sickest dance party ever. I think I might look into throwing my own dance marathon and destroying the previous record …

And there you have it. 7 things that lasted longer than Kim Kardashians marriage. It probably would have been easier to make a list of things that didn’t make it to 72 days. There are probably only a few …  like Britney Spears’ first marriage of 55 hours. Sorry Britney.

Glad my first post is out of the way. Stay classy.
