Good morning and happy Monday, everyone! If you’re like me, then you’re nursing a pretty heinous sunburn from the OU game this weekend. I used to think the worst thing about 11 AM games was the whole not being able to really drink before the game. But I was wrong. The worst part is getting sunburned from sitting in direct sunlight for 4 straight hours. (And yes, I wore sunscreen, you jerks. SPF 70 was not enough for those rays.) So, if anyone needs me today, I’ll be somewhere where the air doesn’t hurt my skin.
Anyway, as always, I’ve gathered up the tweets from the week before and placed them lovingly here for you to enjoy. As always, this week’s tweets are after the jump!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve become quite adept at avoiding my neighbors. I’m not really sure who they are or what they do, but I feel that’s okay. I don’t need any more information than that. I mean, the nicknames I refer to them by are all the information I really need about them. (Their nicknames are Tom Petty, Sleeveless T, Grumpy Nanny and the Crackheads, if you’re curious.)
But apparently not everyone is as antisocial as I am. I guess other people don’t sprint from their cars into their homes the second they get home from work. I have no idea why anyone would put themselves in a position to have a conversation with their neighbors. In fact, I’d say there are some people in this world who are actually nice and want to do good things for their neighbors. Like save their lives. Sound too good to be true?
Check out this story about Luis Becerra. He our “TLO Hero of the Week,” and by all accounts, the heroic neighbor I’ll never be:
I’m not sure why, but I have a natural tendency to create lists and outlines. It’s a hobby, and a great way to rank things that are a part of my life. From listing my favorite berries in order (1. raspberry, 2. blackberry, 3. snozzberry, 4. strawberry) to creating entire spreadsheets of people I know (organized by name, vocal ticks, drink of preference, and how I met them), I’m an A-1 sociopath. I’m okay with this. Sure, it’s weird, but even my list/outline/spreadsheet making tendencies aren’t as scary as mile marker 72 on southbound I-35.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Sonic will never let you down. Sure, I’ve been lobbying for them to create a fried pie for a long time and they still haven’t. (How hard can it be, Sonic? Taco Bell has the caramel apple empanada, and that is LIFE CHANGING. The cinnasnacks with cream cheese frosting are basically tiny fried pies too. Come on, Sonic. Make 2016 the year of the fried pie.) But regardless of the lack of fried pies, at least there is still fried cheese. Sonic is there for you.
And another cool thing that Sonic does (aside from the cookie dough blast) is that they are basically giving schools money that the state doesn’t want to give. According to KFOR.com:
Good morning and happy Monday everyone. I hope this last Monday of September proves to be a good one for you. For me, it was pretty hard to get out of bed. But that could be because I spent all Sunday celebrating birthdays and family time. Can I just say that all Sundays are the busiest days ever? But don’t let that deter you if you want to write MMT. I mean, you can probably manage your Sunday fun days better than me. If you’re interested in writing MMT, don’t forget to email TheLostOgle@gmail.com. And if you already contacted us, sit tight. We’ll be getting back to you soon!
Anyway, as always, I’ve gathered up all the tweets from last week and put them all in one place. Check them out after the jump!
