Hi everyone! It’s Monday, which means it’s time for Monday Morning Tweets, and it’s April 1st, which means it’s the most obnoxious day of the year. If New Year’s Eve is Amateur Night for people who drink, April Fool’s Day is Amateur Day for people who think they are funny. I tend to just spend the entire day hunkered down by myself trying to have as little human contact as possible. Hey, Frank in HR, there’s a reason you work in HR and not as the host of a hilarious hidden-camera show. Please just leave me alone today.
Do that, and read this week’s tweets.
Earlier today, the Governor’s Office released nearly 50,000 emails as part of an open records request we filed back in December. Although it’s taken them awhile, I guess we should thank them for the release. That’s because we’re already finding gems likes the one below, where Governor Fallin’s Chief of Staff Denise Northrup complains to Policy Director Katie Altshuler that State Senator Eddie Shields was staring at her breasts during a meeting about tort reform.
Check it out the exchange after the jump.
Hey y’all. And can I just say holy eff March is already over? What the hell happened there? Seriously, 2013 is shaping up to be the fastest year ever, which means that the world is totally rotating faster than it used to, probably because of global warming. But none of that’s important. Because today is Good Friday. It’s not so good as Better Friday, and even less good than Best Friday. But it’s good, and sometimes you just have to take what you can get.
Anyway, here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town!
Did you know that food tastes better when it’s prepared in an automobile? It’s an indisputable fact. Think about it. The fair—all food is prepared in mobile trailer sorts of things and smells vaguely of the diesel that fuels them. Now just imagine how good that food would taste if it were prepared in a truck. Aw yes. And what if those food trucks were Heo’s Kitchen, MotoChef, Off the Hook Seafood and More, Roxy’s Ice Cream Social and so many more.
The H&8th Night Market is a celebration of mobile culinary creativity that takes place in front of Elemental Coffee. It’s free to attend, and there will be some live music as well. You can see some Spy DJs inside Elemental Coffee throughout the evening. And Coop Ale Works will be your local, friendly, beer provider for the night.
Well, readers, it may be spring here in OKC, but winter is definitely coming. On March 31, my life will soon have meaning again. I’ve never been so glad about my parents paying for like 900 channels worth of nonsense as when HBO introduced the HBOGO app. With my mom’s password, I have access to a world of magic, intrigue, betrayal, and lots of boobs. If you haven’t caught on yet, readers, I’m talking about Game of Thrones.
Season 3 will begin at the end of this month, and we will all, once again, be enthralled by a fantasy world. Will Arya make it home? Will Theon Greyjoy quit being a jackwagon already? Will someone please beat the everloving hell out of Joffrey? Who knows! (If you’ve read the books and you spoil this for me, I will George R.R. Martin you so fast—that’s code for kill you off).
Anyway, in anticipation for Sunday’s premier, Patrick and I decided to come up with a list of Oklahoman’s we’d cast as some of our favorite Game of Thrones characters. Let’s begin with the good guys, or at least who we think are the good guys, the lovable Starks:
Catelyn Stark / The Pioneer Woman
Who better to be wife and mother of the Stark clan than the Pioneer Woman? She has experience cooking, cleaning, ranching and home schooling her children all by herself…and with a little help of an army of servants, tutors and ghostwriters. – Marisa
Does this mean the Marlboro Man will get his head chopped off? – Patrick
Arya Stark / Young Emily Sutton
Emily is everyone’s favorite and can put up a mean fight when need be. – Marisa
Dreams do come true! – Patrick
The Sweet 16 comes to a close today with match-ups from the West Region. One of the games involves Kevin Durant battling a missing kangaroo. That should have been the plot to Thunderstruck.
Here are the match ups!
(1) Kevin Durant vs. (12) Lucy Sparkles
(2) Kristin Chenoweth (3) Bibi Jones
A basketball player, a singing actress, a porn “star” and a dead kangaroo all walk into a bar. You figure out the rest.
