Olberman Owned, Gift Cards, and Not So Nice Thoughts

Today's Top News

Someone posted a video from The Dallas Tea Party today.... it is basically their answer to Keith Olberman asking where all the people of color are at the Tea Parties.  I have to admit, Keith got owned!

Today's Pondering

I see people posting all these so and so entered to win a $100 Lowe's gift card... or whatever store.  I wonder if that is a legit thing but I see it lots everyday and have not heard of any of my friends winning.  How about you?

Today's Evil Thought

It was a slow day on Facebook.  I guess the crops have come in and there are way to many people busy with the harvest.  So, I was trying to think of some weird kind of status message I could post and wondering if it was odd enough how many responses I would get..  So, feel free to leave a comment and I might just post it to see how it goes over.  I was almost thinking about telling everyone that my 85 year old grandmother had her boobs done and that I had pictures....  :)

All Heart, Jungle Love, and BFF Stuff

Today's New Story

It seems that Dick Cheney is in the hospital with chest pains.  I read that he has already had four heart attacks and a triple bypass.  Proof I guess that the man has a heart although the majority of people feel otherwise  To show heart here, a prayer for him and his family.

On a local note it's suppose to snow here again in Dallas... a rare event indeed.  So, like a week and a half ago all my local friends are talking snow, snow, snow.   

Today's New Time Waster

It seems there is a new, well new to me, game that my friends are playing called Jungle Extreme.  I guess it's like Farmville jungle style.  I understand that it's fun to play games.  I even admit to having my own farm on Farmtown.  I don't play it much but when I do, I don't post everything I do on the farm to my wall.  Posting these things on your wall let's your friends know that you have no life.  I personally like to keep up appearances on Facebook as if I have more important things to do.

Today's Great Status

To prove while I'm sarcastic, a.k.a. smart ass, I do have a heart.  I thought this was a great message.

Always give a friend a safe place to cry and never be the reason they need to.

Statues, Time Wasters, and Punctuation

Today's Top News

I found out today about Indonesia having a statue of Obama as a child. You can read all about it here.

Today's Great Status

warns you that reading this status may result in having wasted several seconds reading this status for nothing.

Today's Fan Page

I have found the perfect fan page for my mother.  She calls me all the time to tell me about all the mistakes on my blog.  The woman is so obsessed with grammar and punctuation, that she took her a newsletter she received from the company that she worked for marked it up with a red pen, and sent it back to themI'm sure a phone call will be coming after she reads this post as well.  Hi mom!

If people like me drive you crazy with their lackadaisical attitude when it comes to grammar and punctuation this fan page is for you,  'Let's eat Grandma!' or, 'Let's eat, Grandma!' Punctuation saves lives.

My New Idea

I think that we should start one of those chain status deals and I have an idea for it to see how far we can get it around Facebook.  I'll announce it when we have 100 fans on our page so join up by clicking the Facebook widget on the sidebar and becoming a fan.

Ramenaire, Cherubs and a Celebrity Goat

Today's Top News

I learned about this guy that was just so miserable being a millionaire that he was getting rid of all his things and money to feel better.  Now I've never been a millionaire so I'm not so sure about how I would feel about that but I know it's not very pleasant to not have any money either in fact it just plain sucks.  I've been through times in my life, and I'm sure many others have too, that I like to call the "Ramen Era" I guess at that point I was a ramenaire.

What truly made me curious about this article is that it only mentioned his wife one time and it didn't mention how she felt about giving all the money away.  Did she take her half and leave or is she all in on this?

Today's Great Status

...thinks Valentines Day is a little scary...I mean come on... some fat toddler with wings chasing you with a weapon?? That's some scary "Chuckie" stuff!!

Hmm, I never really thought about it like that.

Today's Fan Page

Vote Goat! Can this Goat get more fans than Barack Obama?  This fan page is closing in on one million fans so I'll be keeping an eye on this one. *Update I just check the fan page and it only has 125k I guess my friend was wrong.

Feelin' The Love

Today's Top News

The Obama Administration will be honoring the 43rd President of the United States by naming the gap between the tectonic plates beneath Haiti after him. The area will now officially be referred to as "Bush's Fault".

Ok, so it's not a real news story but all the ones that were posted today weren't really worth repeating.  More snow yadda, yadda... more campaign news, yawn... so, you see the news I posted while not true seemed much more interesting. :o)

Today's Best Status

Sometimes you just have to love your friend's twisted thoughts...

Finally got it figured out! We've come up with a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at airports. Have a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on you. It would be a win-win for everyone, and there would be no nonsense about racial profiling!!!!!

Today's Chain Status

We talked about love being in the air for Valentines and now this is going around Facebook...

It's Valentine's Week on Facebook. Change your profile picture to a picture of you with your significant other and tell us how long you've been together.

Just another way this time of year to make your lonely single friends feel like crap to see all the couples all smiling in their pictures.  Yup, yup!

*Disclaimer - The couple in the picture is not one of my actual friends on Facebook but rather just some random couple like the ones that you get in a frame when you buy it at the store.

I have to hand it to Sarah Palin

Today's Top News

Sarah Palin has started a trend after writing notes on her hand.  A good number of my friends now have profile pictures of their hand with varying notes on it.  Even White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs had to get in on the action by showing off notes he had written on his hand during today's press briefing.  The words on his hand included Hope and Change... I guess those two haven't been checked off the list yet.

Today's New Facebook Look B*tch

Most people just really don't like change (which just shocks the hell out of me that Obama got voted in on that word, onto the real post now) until people get use to the new look of Facebook again, we can just expect a fair amount of bitching.  So, today the big one was somebody had a hard time locating their Farmville gifts.. now we've talked about how this farming thing is addictive and I'm sure it was very upsetting to this person.  :o)

Today's Sweet Love

It's almost Valentine's day and there is love in the air on Facebook. One of my friends wrote all mushy, mushy about how her husband was the best in the world.  The only thing I could think is... sure until tomorrow when he pisses you off.  I know I'm such a romantic.

Palm Readings Now the Media is Psychic

Today's Top News

Well it seems today that in the news there are a big brew ha ha about Palin having notes written on her hand.  The media acted as if she had been cheating on her SAT's or something but the average Joes around Facebook are laughing at the media and how they could even compare that to a teleprompter.  One of my friends posted this picture, if anyone wants to do a palm reading. Palm reading... LOL LOL LOL

I personally write notes on my hand all the time.  I've always thought that if I lost my hand whatever was written on it would be the least of my worries!

Today's Great Message

No I don't always have to be snarky. hehe  I thought this was a great message, really... 

What you do for others you are doing for yourself. That can work both ways so be sure what you are doing for others is kind, loving, forgiving, supporting. Another way to say it would be What you put out comes back to you double! http://www.whereheavenandearthmeet.com

Today's Sad Goodbye

For the first time since I've been on Facebook I had to learn how to ax a friend off my list.  Lots of my friends talk politics and I think it's pretty informative but this lady, if I should call her a lady, has some really obnoxious things to say that are way out of line.  I'm not for being all PC but I'm definitely for not acting like a total crazy person.

P.S. My spell check is not working and I can hardly spell my own name so please forgive me. In other words don't get all snarky with the "spell check use it" comments. Thanks.

Who dat? Super Bowl Edition

Today's Top News

Of course there was talk about the Super Bowl all day today on Facebook?  I did have a question though... why is 'Who dat?' ok to say in our very PC world? Anyone, anyone?

Today's Funny Stuff

I'm laughing hard about all the comments about The Who playing for the halftime show.  Half the people don't know who the heck The Who is and the other half are making fun of these really old guys jammin' out.  I know I thought the lead singer looked like he needed an oxygen tank rolled out at any minute.

Today's Opinions

From what I can tell the baby E*Trade commercials where the favorite among my friends.

Corps, Corpse, Tomayto, Tamahto

Let me start off by saying that I'm so so happy to have the internet again!  That was a rough couple of days and as crazy as it sounds I was thinking about a disaster and what if we all didn't have internet. (insert doom and gloom scary music here!)  What would we do without it?  I know it's very painful to think about. :oP

Next time I go on vacation I'm finding out where this place is!

Today's Top News

According to President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast we have a 'corpse' man in the Navy.  I would say he pronounced corps wrong but who am I to say? I went to community college and he went to Harvard.  Here's the video.

I also learned today that my state senator is for increasing the tax on fuel by ten cents a gallon and since I'm against using profanity on my blog I won't say anymore on that subject.

Today's Well That's Interesting

People have started posting on their profile It's Doppelganger week. Please change your profile picture to someone famous (actor, musician, athlete, etc) you have been told you look like. Then re-post this message.  Sadly, I didn't participate in this because I have never been told I look like anyone.

Today's Great Quote

Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.

My New Facebook Friend and Some Highway Robbery

Today's News

I'll tell you this will be short and sweet since I'm typing it on my crackberry which by the way is the only way I can get to Facebook.You see I'm out of town and not without my laptop but the hotel I'm at wants $11.95 per day for me to connect to their internet. That monkey just ain't gonna dance... Or in other words I'm not going to pay that much when I can get it on my phone it's not high quality but it works. I guess I could compare it to looking for long butts when you are out of cigarettes.

Onward to my new friend. My kids send a stuff Pokemon with me when I go out of town then I take pics of him to post on Facebook for the kids. When I was taking a pic of said @okemon with the frontdesk lady she thought it was fun and is now my newest FB friend. Facebook bringing the world together. LOL

Pray that in the morning I can find a hotspot or I'm going to have to start begging for tips or something so I can have mobile internet. Remember kids it,s the simple things in life and wireless internet that makes us most happy.
