SHE SAID: Case of the Mondays?

April 19, 2011

I was in Boston yesterday watching my sister run the marathon.  It was amazing.  Between her finishing in an unbelievably great time, getting to experience the city on Marathon Monday and cheering for so long that my voice was horse and my son was telling me to be quiet, I had an unforgettable weekend.  I was also not near my computer, so I’m posting a day late.

Here is a really great article about how even though one might aspire to be well read, well listened, etc., there just isn’t enough time to digest all that is being produced.

Every once in a while I come across something online that lights up my life, even if only for a few seconds until my attention span lapses and I move on to something new and flash filled. This website was one of those rare finds that I have to share. I recommend the little blue fish. Thanks to Kate and her family for sending along.

Here is my favorite ad from the super bowl. I got to see it a few days earlier thanks to my friend Jess:

_______

Some of the worst tweets in twitter history. The list was compiled after Kenneth Cole’s incredibly tasteless tweet this past week: “Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online… -KC.”

_______

A montage of the best sports pep talks in movies and TV. This made me want to watch Miracle again ….

As of 2012, meat and poultry will be getting more detailed nutrition information. Sounds great, right?  Not so fast.  They are only including caloric and fat information, nothing about where the meat comes from, what kind of conditions the animal was born/raised/butchered in or what the animal ingested.  We still have such a long way to go and I still have to go out of my way to find meat that I’m not afraid to eat.

The Ex-Blocker.  How many of us could have used this at one point in time?  I also have a few friends I’d like to pass the link on to.

I know Christmas is over … but if I could have a do over, I would like to ask Santa for these pajama jeans.  I mean how can you argue with a “jean” so comfortable that you can and will want to wear them while working out?!  Here is the infomercial.

Holy cow.  This is amazing and for the first time, minivans are COOL.  Jodi Hill, the mind behind Eastbound and Down, was behind this new Toyota Sienna music video.  Brilliant move, Toyota.  Brilliant.

I was okay with some of the eighties fashion trends returning. Off the shoulder tops and tapered jeans were okay, as were over-sized tops and leggings.  But I will not succumb to pleats, shoulder pads, or these ever again.  No matter how awesome Katie Holmes tries to make them seem*.

I don’t even think I could do this in my dreams.

*a reference to her stubborn habit of peg rolling her jeans about a year ago.

He Said discussed breaking up with me…on the blog while we were socializing this weekend.  I’m hoping his threat is a result of his being alcoholically impaired because I realize I have not posted since November first…

I’m hoping this post is the beginning of the healing.

Donald.  We actually caught this in real time and rewound to watch it a few times.  Someone brilliantly added some fitting music to the clip which is available here on vimeo, but I wasn’t able to imbed that video  – wordpress issue.
