Mosquitoes are coming…

It’s not secret that summer is my favorite time of year. I like being able to wear a t-shirt so I don’t accidentally leave my jacket at various restaurants and bars. And all the sunshine is really nice too. Plus, any season where I can sit on a patio and drink beer is aces in my book. Sure, the allergies suck a lot, but I don’t expect there will ever be a time in my life as an Oklahoman that I won’t be addicted to Claritin or Zyrtec.

But, as with all things in life, there is a major downside to the summer. Like you’ve probably already guessed, because we’ve had a ton of rain lately, that downside looks like it’s going to be hella mosquitoes. According to News9.com:

The “Call Me Maybe” girl is singing at Promenade tonight

95-106 Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012

Remember the chick who sang that terrible “Call Me Maybe” song that you could never get out of your head? Well, tonight she’s kickin’ it old school and putting on a free concert tonight at Tulsa’s Promenade Mall. I’m not sure whether this is more embarrassing for her, or Promenade.

From Tulsa Promenade’s website:

KFOR’s Ashley Kringen enjoys the gym, tanning and probably laundry…

Last Friday, KFOR’s Ashley Kringen sent out the following tweet. It’s a pic of her along with notorious local bodybuilder trainer / Muscle Milk shareholder Scott Do…

We’ve been fans of KFOR’s Ashley Kringen since the former beauty queen burst on the OKC Media scene in 2012ish. She’s made our most recent rankings of the 20 Hottest, been featured on Hot Girl Friday and was the focus of a post where we helped her pick out future adventures, but this kind of worries me. I know it’s cool to be healthy and in shape, but bodybuilding is creepy and unnatural. If God wanted us all to look like Greek gods and professional wrestlers, would he really have made carbs, sugar and saturated fat? Probably not.

Plus, her trainer is Scott Do. I’m ashamed to admit this, but I actually worked out at Scott’s gym on N. May a few years ago. I was the resident Chubby Funster who made everyone else in the gym feel better about themselves. Hopefully this doesn’t get me broken in half like a protein bar, but Scott was about as nice and personable as an elliptical machine. You’d say “Good Morning” and he’d look at you like you were an empty container of cottage cheese. He’s known for being borderline insane when it comes to diet, and he makes his clients exercise and eat like they’re Biggest Loser contestants. I eventually had to leave his place in 2013 as punishment for hanging pizza slices in front of my treadmill as motivation.

With that being said, let’s take a look at some photo’s from the event and see how Ashley did…

Don Draper finally spent some time in Oklahoma…

Mad Men has always been lauded as a show that pays close attention to detail and historical accuracy. Knowing that, you would think they’d figure out how to properly spell our state’s name.

Last night, Oklahoma finally made its first cameo in the Golden Age of Television. Cool, huh? Well, this happened:

alva mad men

Come on, Mad Men. You’re better than this. I know we’re not the brightest lot in the country, but one thing Oklahomans know is how to properly spell and abbreviate our state’s name. I credit this to our old license plates that reminded generations of us that our state is simply OK.

This wasn’t the only inaccuracy in last night’s episode. Check this out:

Monday Morning Tweets

I hope you all had the best Mother’s Day ever. I had way to much to drink, but that’s because all the mothers in my life really like to booze it up. So, if you’re wondering why I’m such an unruly degenerate, that’s probably a good place to start. Oh, and if your Mom happens to be anything like mine, yesterday was all about food. So. Much. Food. If anyone needs me, I’ll be sleeping off this sugary carb coma for the next 3 days. Until then, however, I do have some tweets for you.

As always, you can get the best tweets from the week before right here after the jump!
