If you’re anything like me, you spent the bulk of your weekend reading tweets about the Oklahoma Memorial Marathon. Seriously, did everyone on twitter except for me run in that thing? My whole feed was full of people either talking about how they were running the marathon (Example: “I’m on mile 6!”) or talking about how happy they were that someone else was running the marathon (Example: “Just saw Stacy at mile 12. Soooooooo proud of her!!!”).
Man, do runners love running. They love everything about running. They especially like talking about running. After running, talking about running is the #1 thing runners seem to like. Also, is it just me or are runners crazily cultish about their running? Like, if they find out you’re a fellow runner, there is nothing you could do to sever the relationship. You could murder an elderly man and the only reaction would be, “See you at Red Coyote this weekend!” In summary: though very clearly insane, runners are sort of adorable and infectious in how enthusiastic they are. I wish I could find something I was that excited about (other than picking apart Dean Blevins’ twitter feed).
This week’s tweets after the jump!
Happy Monday, boys and girls! It’s time for another edition of Monday Morning Tweets! Ordinarily I don’t like to start the week off by complaining about the mentally ill, but Ron Artest can go f*** himself! Am I right, people? Somebody needs to get this dude some serious help, and fast, because it’s not going to end well for him. A lot of us — myself included — treated him with bemusement as kind of a funny sideshow, but the dude is messed up in the head. Violent outbursts are nothing to take lightly and as TLO’s own Clark Matthews says, not beating the hell out of fans is a pretty low standard for personal growth. Here’s hoping James Harden is ok and Metta World Peace gets a really bad kidney stone or something.
After the jump, this week’s tweets!
Hello, people of the internet! It’s something of a melancholy Monday morning, what with the tragedy in Woodward over the weekend. A sad reminder that as much as we take severe weather for granted and embrace the spectacle of it all, it is genuinely life-and-death that we are dealing with; beyond the drinking games and bedazzled weather ties, life is at risk and severe storms must be respected. If you’d like to help the people of Woodward, I’d suggest donating to the Red Cross. Their website is here. And, since this is the twitter post, follow Red Cross spokesman and former Channel 9 newsguy Rusty Surette here. TLO wants to send it’s best wishes to those in Woodward.
With that, we’ll get to week’s tweets after the jump.
It’s that time again, readers, when we tackle the tough questions that other blogs are too scared to touch. Last time you decided overwhelmingly that you preferred Bob Mills to the Mathis Brothers, most likely because you are responsible hamster owners. This week, we take on the question that no one else has the balls to debate. Truck nuts: yes or no?
Hello again, boys and girls! It’s yet another Monday morning, and therefore time for another edition of Monday Morning Tweets.
I spent a lot of time wrestling with whether or not I should include the above Ogle-bait from your newly-crowned Ogle Madness V champion. On the one hand: Joleen Chaney and Emily Sutton pillow fight! On the other hand: “don’t be the creepy guy” is one of my life’s philosophies, and one day you’re writing about pillow fights, then you’re composing possibly disturbing yet surprisingly catchy songs to post on the internet, and the next day you’re dancing to Goodbye Horses. So the pillow fight is acknowledged and you guys can do with it what you will, but I’m moving on. This week’s tweets are after the jump!
