What’s up, readers? And may I ask what’s up with all the people tweeting about the sunrise this morning? I mean, really? You’d think we had a bunch of early risers on our hands, but I know for a fact that’s not the case. Why? Because the sun didn’t rise until like 7:39 AM. So all you normal-time risers acted all superior because you caught a pic of the sun coming up on your way to get some Starbucks. Remember when I had to be at work at 7:00 AM and saw the sun rise every morning, sometimes after I’d already been at work for nearly an hour? No, you don’t remember that because I didn’t brag about it nor do I consider every day occurrences a staggering work of beauty. Call me when the Mona Lisa sprawls across the horizon.
Anyway, here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town.
In the fifth grade, I won a contest by selling the most fundraiser items. My prize was to ride in a limo with all the winners from other grades. We got to go to Pizza Hut and eat from the lunch buffet. And then later, we got candy. And then, fast forward to a few years ago, I attended a bachelorette party in a limo, where the driver literally got stuck in the parking lot of The Mont in Norman. Needless to say, the vision I have of limos is pretty sad. Sure, they proclaim a certain status, but it’s the same sort of status proclaimed by terry cloth sweat suits and overly long fake French manicures.
But from the event description, perhaps I am intended to make a different assumption.
“This is OKC hottest new social business networking concept. We bring 24 socially enthuse [sic] business professionals together in one extra large luxury limo with champagne and wine. Your entire experience is unique and includes dinner, drinks, motivational and business guest speakers. It’s informative and fun and not your typical rigid social networking event.”
Yep. So basically, Jean-Ralphio organized this shindig. Don’t be surprised if the license plate on the limo says “Entertainment 720.”
Generally speaking, I like yoga. I don’t like that I’m supposed to be “in the moment” while I do it. Honestly, my favorite part of the whole class is at the end when we lay on our mats and I doze off while an iPod plays the sounds of wind rustling through tree leaves overhanging a babbling brook. And then, the instructor whispers really motivational things about how great we all are. It’s pretty much the opposite of how I was raised. And then, the middle aged dude whose wife is making him take the class tries to conceal a fart.
If yoga seems intimidating to you, don’t let it be. It’s the chillest thing in the world, for reals. And if you’re an absolute beginner, this 6 class workshop is for you. It’s a step-by-step review of the basics that will give you a strong foundation in the fundamentals of yoga. Plus, and this is the most important part to me, it will give you a reason to wear yoga pants. Because they’re actually meant for yoga and not for grocery shopping or errand running, or as I use them mainly, for couch sitting.
Generally speaking, I like comic books. Though, for someone like me who has spent the better part of her life reading text only, they have a tendency to cause a bit of a sensory overload. And let’s face it. I’m really only a fake geek girl, or so I’ve been told by many angry men on the internet. Which is fine. They can think I’m fake all they want, but I’m currently studying to be a librarian, so they can suck it. That’s like becoming certified to be a nerd.
Anyway, you should totally go through your comics and find all your stuff by Dave Johnson (100 Bullets, Detective Comics, Punisher MAX) and Dan Panosian (X-Men, Capatain America, Red Sonja) because these dudes will be signing at New World Comics in Oklahoma City from noon to 3. This will totally give you a reason to go through all your comics, as well as justify to your wife or mother the reason you’ve been keeping them all these years.
That’s all for this weekend, readers. Enjoy this, the second weekend of 2013.
