Good morning and happy Monday, everyone. It’s that time of year again. From my survey last week, it would appear that y’all think I shouldn’t try to write like Shakespeare and that I should just put topical information in this intro. Well, jokes on you guys! I’m so irrelevant you wouldn’t even believe. Ummm. So. Last week. There were things. And this week, there will actually also be things. That’s all I’ve got, at least until I see the new Fast and Furious movie. I’m serious about that. Seeing that film will be the pinnacle of my week.
Anyway, I at least do have some tweets for your enjoyment. As always, they’re after the jump.
The Nerds Were Out in Full Force
So, this past weekend saw both the Medieval Fair in Norman, and Super Bitcon at the State Fairgrounds. But more importantly, it saw me realize something about myself as I walked around the Medieval Fair. That something was that I don’t like people who like things. That may seem odd or vague, but just know that if you’re way into something, we’re not going to be friends. I find your enthusiasm for a hobby, activity or interest to be nauseating. I’d like everyone to know that my tent is firmly staked in the “grown folks who sit back and drink beer for fun” camp, and it ain’t moving. I say this not to discourage anyone from enjoying their interests, but just to let you know. Your enthusiasm for a subject will not move to me to enjoy it. I’m an antisocial asshole. I know. I’ve come to terms with it.
But that doesn’t mean that other people didn’t have a good time….
Is it overly apparent that I have no idea how to write an intro for this column? I mean, I try to say something relevant every week, but sometimes, you just can’t be relevant. I scrolled through the archives to see some past intros I had written, and also the intros my predecessor, Tony, had written. But it wasn’t much help because Tony had like 4 intros where he basically stated that he didn’t know how to introduce this column. Which, like, I’m not throwing him under the bus or anything, but you can see that this isn’t the easiest thing to write a couple of paragraphs for. I mean, what do you, the reader, even look for in an intro? Or do you just scroll through to see if your tweet made the cut? (Spoilers: It probably didn’t.)
Anyway, I guess I should get to the actual tweets now. This is my favorite part of the intro, because I just tell you the tweets are after the jump, and the intro is over. So, well, ummm. The tweets are after the jump!
Good morning and happy Monday, guys. Guess what this week is? It’s my official 5 year anniversary of writing for The Lost Ogle. That’s right, you guys. I have now been writing pure nonsense for this blog more than twice as long as I’ve ever held an actual job, and I’ve published more words here than I probably will anywhere else. It’s pretty nice to know that after working for 5 years at this organization, that I am the one who gets to trawl through your lame tweets to pick ones to put on the blog on Mondays. It’s a dream, really.
Anyway, you can pretty much consider these tweets to be the very best tweets ever since they’re the tweets for my 5 year anniversary. Check them out after the jump!
Good morning and happy Monday, fellow Oklahomans. I hope you’re all enjoying your Monday after Daylight Saving Time. If you’re like me, then you’re using DST as an excuse every single time your late or fall asleep in a situation where it’s not socially acceptable to do so for the next month. I mean, I still use this excuse in like December when it’s not valid, but people don’t seem to question it. Seriously, best excuse ever.
Anyway, as always, I’ve gathered all tweets you need to read, and put them here just for you. They’re after the jump!
Good morning and happy Monday, everyone! It’s the first Monday of March 2015, which means that both spring break and St. Patrick’s Day are fast approaching. I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing quite so nice as that time of year where drunk college kids are doing body shots on the beach, and a person you know for a fact has never set foot in Ireland tells you quite vehemently that it’s St. Paddy’s Day, and will only take a drink when you say “slainte” and not cheers. Ah, spring. You crazy time of year.
Anyway, a lot happened on Twitter last week, like snow, some llamas, and a dress. It was kind of insane. As always, I have all the tweets your little heart could ever desire right here, after the jump!
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
