Monday Morning Tweets

Good morning and happy Monday, everyone. Welcome to another edition of Monday Morning Tweets, where I pick out a bunch of tweets, and then basically make the jokes all about me. Here we are on the Monday before Thanksgiving. I hope your place of employment has given you the Friday after Thanksgiving off. If not, just know that I personally despise them for you. It’s not that I want you to be able to go Black Friday shopping (in fact, that will always be National No Buy Day in my heart), but I would like for you to sit around, digest everything you ate the day before, and then, you know, eat all the leftover pie in one sitting. Sometimes, it’s binge eating that I’m truly thankful for.

Anyway, as always, I’ve gathered all the tweets from the week before and collected them in one place for your enjoyment. Check them out after the jump!

Shelty the Wonder Dog saved her owner!

Here at TLO, we’re dog people. Sure, we don’t mind if you have a cat, but we’re all suckers for a wagging tail. Maybe it’s because they’re so playful, or because they give unconditional love regardless of what you’ve written on the internet. Either way, we really like dogs. In fact, if you ever happen upon my Instagram feed, you know that my dog is my favorite subject to photograph. But let’s be real. My dog exists for one purpose, and that is to sleep on the couch when I’m too occupied to do so.

Apparently there are dogs on this planet that do more than sleep or bark at the Fed Ex dude as he drops off Mod Cloth orders. In fact, there are dogs out there who actually HELP their owners. According to KFOR.com:

You can get in on the ground floor of the Del City revitalization!

The OKC Metro is a hopping place. Consistently ranked high among places with low costs of living, Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas sure are seeing an influx of residents. Couple this with our state’s incessant need to be like everywhere else by having as many national chains as possible open up stores, and it’s easy to see that development in the OKC Metro area is booming.

And sure, we’ve seen how areas of Oklahoma City have been gentrified revitalized. But what about the surrounding areas? It will not surprise you to know that they are following in the same direction. According to News9.com:

Independent voters can vote in Oklahoma primaries… sort of!

I have long wondered why a person in the state of Oklahoma would register as an Independent. Sure, I get it. You don’t want to register as either a Democrat or a Republican, because you’re above all that and your ideology can’t be contained on either side of the party line. That’s all well and good, except registering as an Independent was basically like saying you didn’t want to be able to vote in the primaries, because Oklahoma has closed primaries. Well, that’s all about to change.

Oklahoma is about to become one of 17 states with open primaries. Sort of. According to KFOR.com:

Monday Morning Tweets

Good morning and happy Monday, everyone. By this time next week you’ll be wishing that you had ordered some pies this week. So, you know, make sure you’ve put in an order for something delicious that you can bring to Thanksgiving this year. It’s about time you stopped being the one that just showed up with nothing to offer. Consider this your reminder. Also, if you bring a non-Thanksgiving style food item, people like me will love you forever. I know that the holiday only comes once a year, but can I just say that is way too often to consume turkey? I feel like humanity has evolved past birds. It’s time to embrace red meat for Thanksgiving.

Anyway, like I always do, I’ve got some tweets for you. Check them out after the jump.
