After that gorgeous weekend, there isn’t much to be happy about. It’s balls-out cold and you have five straight days of awful ahead of you in the form of a job. I’m not even going to pretend that I can cheer you up. Because I can’t. I can, however, bring you the tweets. But seriously, if you’re seeking emotional fulfillment from a blog, you probably need to talk to your doctor or something. Maybe get some of that lithium to help you out.
Anyway, tweets are after the jump.
What I know about art is pretty much limited to “live, laugh, love” bric-a-brac from Hobby Lobby. Seriously, if it doesn’t appear in a mass produced calendar, find its way into a dentist’s waiting room, or serve as the inspiration for a wine and palette event, I am probably not aware of it. This is not to say that Oklahoma isn’t home to some fine pieces of art. There are tons of local galleries and museums, as well as Derek Fisher’s shorts. (Seriously, that butt is priceless, y’all.)
The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art on OU’s campus houses some pretty impressive pieces. I don’t really know what they are, but I did have a class in the basement of that building my senior year, so I’m pretty much cultured. Recently the provenance of one such piece has been called into question. According to NewsOK.com:
It’s that time again. No, not that time. It’s this time. Which is to say that it’s Monday. And if you haven’t noticed, I’m pretty awful at the intro to this weekly post. What is there to say? I mean, it happens every week. If you’ve been here before you know what’s up. If you haven’t been here before, welcome to TLO’s Monday Morning Tweets column. I amass all the important tweets from the previous week, and then you laugh. Ready, here we go! The tweets are after the jump!
Because Hogwarts doesn’t accept FAFSA or tribal scholarships, most Oklahomans never make it to the acclaimed school of witchcraft and wizardry. Couple this with the fear mongering religious right’s belief that a fictional boy conquering evil is somehow un-Christian, and it’s easy to understand the lack of witchcraft and wizardry information available in our state. It’s a shame though, because where is a resident of Oklahoma City to get all the necessary information regarding potions, herbology, divination, transfiguration and charms?
How about our magical neighbors to the north, Tulsa?
According to News9.com:
Consider this post consolation for the fact that you’ve already given up on your resolutions and have gone back to eating gluten. I, myself, only made it 10 days without drinking. So, know that you aren’t alone in your failure. But you know what I didn’t give up on? Bringing you the tweets. I’ve got all the best ones from the past week right here ready and waiting for you. So pour yourself another cup of coffee and get cozy. The next 5 minutes should be fun reading. The tweets are after the jump.
