You read that title correctly.
This will be the last edition of Monday Morning Tweets to ever grace this gentle blog. We’ve been running the feature for years, but it’s probably time to quit while we’re ahead. (That’s some advice I wish I had last weekend at the Riverwind, but I digress.) We’ve featured many a tweet in our time, and now we feel as if 2016 is time for a whole new sort of post. While I can’t tell you what the future will bring for the gang here at TLO, I can tell you that if you follow @TheLostOgle on Twitter, you’re likely to see the same caliber of entertainment you usually get from MMT. Oh, and I’m sure you’ll see Patrick skewer the dumb tweets of local celebs as well.
So, without further ado, I give you the last edition of Monday Morning Tweets.
Good morning and happy Monday, haters. Did you know that we are just a measly 4 days from Christmas? It’s true. Thankfully, my Christmas shopping is done. Unfortunately, I have yet to wrap a single thing. Also, I have yet to put up my Christmas tree. But I guess, at this point, it’s probably not going to happen this year, which is fine because let’s be real. New Years is the best holiday. Sorry, Christmas. But your cookies and presents just can’t compete with champagne and staying up late.
Anyway, as always, I’ve gathered up the best tweets from the week before and put them right here for your enjoyment. Check them out after the jump!
Good morning and happy Monday, buddies. It’s that time of the week again. Yes, that time of the week where we go back to work even though we totally don’t want to and the weekend was absolutely not long enough. Also, little confession here–I’m nowhere near done with Christmas shopping. In fact…as of this writing…I haven’t even started. (Well, I mean, I guess I have. I did order a new collar for my dog, after all.)
Anyway, you’re probably a may more productive person than I am, and don’t struggle with getting things done and just being a functioning member of society the way I do, so your gifts are probably all bought and wrapped. Good on you, if that’s the case. If not, may I offer up a little something to distract you for a bit? It’s just a bunch of tweets from the week before. And, as always, they’re after the jump.
Good morning and happy Monday, everyone. Can you believe it’s officially been December for a whole week now? I can’t, and I refuse to believe there are only 3 more weeks to shop for Christmas presents. (If you’re one of those people that already has their gifts purchased, I hate you.) See, it’s a tradition in my family to not tell anyone what you want for Christmas until the very last-minute. That way, it guarantees that I’m crying in the mall parking lot 30 minutes before the mall closes because I can’t find anything to get for people. It’s a really great system that has ensured my hatred for the holiday season for years to come.
Anyway, I’m sure your family enables you to have a happier view of the holidays. If not, here are some tweets that may cheer you up. Check them out after the jump.
Good morning and happy Monday, everyone. How’s your first day back to work after a long holiday weekend? That is, assuming you had a holiday weekend. If you worked in retail, I’m totally sorry for you. But know that I continued my tradition of celebrating No Buy Day (to some, this is known as Black Friday), so I didn’t add to your misery. I did a little Small Business Saturday, and do plan to take full advantage of Cyber Monday, though. In fact, as you…
Editor’s Note: On the topic of Cyber Monday, if you’re a fan of The Lost Ogle and Monday Morning Tweets, use this link for all your Amazon shopping and to check out today’s deals. We’ll get credit for the order and a small commission. It will make us rich!
… read this, know that I’ve been up since 2 AM so I could snag a deal on a leather tote bag. (I was almost convinced to go with the Madewell Transport Tote by a Level 4 TLO Groupie, but in the end, I think I need a bag that uses rivets to attach the handles to the bag. I carry a lot of textbooks)
Anyway, I hope you’re snagging some sweet deals too. And, if you get bored with online shopping, you can always come here and peruse the tweets I’ve gathered for your enjoyment. As always, you can check them out after the jump!
