It’s that time once again when we all run to the grocery store and buy 5 pounds of candy, only to have consumed it before it’s time to give it to the neighborhood kids. It’s a time of half-assing a costume so you can attend a party thrown by people who get way into the holiday. It’s a time to enjoy the last holiday before your seasonal depression really sets in and makes you cry uncontrollably at family functions. It’s Halloween! And, according to a Mustang resident, it’s time to make your neighbors think you’ve totally murdered someone with your garage door.
What a long strange week it’s been, eh? There were layoffs, losses, and Nobel Prizes. We aren’t going to cover any of that Nobel business in your Monday Morning Tweets. Who cares about humans achieving great things and being recognized for it when you have some people that have done silly things on Twitter? We have priorities. As always, I’ve grabbed all the good ones and compiled them here for you. And, as always, these tweets are right here after the jump!
I love the smell of Twitter in the morning. Especially on Monday mornings. I’ve sifted through all the crap tweets about people hating on the pumpkin spice latte and people with zero political knowledge talking about the shutdown to bring you the very cream of the crop as far as OKC tweets are concerned. Consider this collection of tweets to be your Monday morning coffee. May it get you all sorts of amped for your day. As always, this week’s tweets are after the jump!
I have many fond memories of my days as an Edmond Middle Schooler. Like my first crush that led to my first rejection. Or the kid in my first hour science class in the seventh grade who used to call me a bitch when I wouldn’t help him cheat on the tests. Toward the end of the school year, I started giving him the wrong answers, but he made a D, and thought I had helped him get such a high-grade. He’s in jail now.
When I was an Edmond Middle Schooler, there were only four middle schools. Now, they’re about to build the sixth. When I was a pubescent mess of a person, the names of the schools were already chosen. But now, anyone can have an opportunity to decide the fate of this school! According to NewsOK.com:
EDMOND — Edmond Public Schools is asking for input in naming the district’s newest middle school, being built next to Frontier Elementary on Pennsylvania Avenue between Danforth and Covell roads.
The deadline for suggestions is noon Oct. 25.
Submission forms are available at all school offices, the district’s administrative center and at www.edmondschools.net. Request a submission form by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Forms should be returned by mail to Debbie Bendick, executive director of secondary education, EPS Administrative Center, 1001 W Danforth, Edmond, OK 73003.
A committee of patrons, teachers and district personnel will research the submissions and recommend potential school names for superintendent David Goin’s consideration. School board members make the final decision.
It’s Monday morning, which means I’m nursing a hangover and trying to go through the motions as my boss scrutinizes my every move. I’m not the best employee, I’ll admit, but at least I’m not the worst. I think.
Anyway, I’ve gathered some tweets for y’all. There was college football, fall-like rain, Blake Shelton went crazy on Westboro Baptist, and Ben Allen is leaving us for a cuter, younger state that probably does yoga and has a tighter butt. And I’ve gathered all the highs and lows of the week as they played out on the greatest social medium to ever exist–Twitter. Check out the tweets after the jump!
