Let Justice Be Served

Recently, my car was struck by an unknown shopper in the Wal-Mart parking lot... at least, this seems the most likely suspect. So I filled out a police report describing the incident, and there was space on the back for a diagram. Yes, I turned this in as evidence to the Fayetteville Police Department. Let justice be served.

My thoughts go elsewhere

I got bored today and made a list. This is something I like to do from time to time. And so, I’d like to leave you with a comprehensive list of my thoughts during Curriculum Design class.

- I’m a list-maker. Hence, the list. I also like to hyphenate words. Hence, list-maker.

- I wish everyone had to pay me a nickel for every time they mispronounced my name. Dr. McComas would be broke.

- My dad taught me that if I can’t say anything nice, I should at least make it funny... which usually resulted in my mom washing my mouth out with soap.

- My mom put me on Slim-Fast in 3rd grade. Apparently, she wanted me to move on from my elastic khaki pants to something slightly more fashionable. Although, I don’t know what could be.

- But if my mom was so concerned about my fashion, why did I have a bowl cut for a major portion of my childhood?

- I watch SportsCenter more than your average girl.

- I’ve attended more baseball games than most middle-aged men.

- I was a lifeguard for 5 Summers. If my calculations are correct, I’ve wasted approximately 2,560 hours of my life. And saved none.

-If I owned a bookstore, I’d make the mystery section really hard to find.

- I once quit texting someone altogether because he used too many emoticons. The smiley faces after every sentence were a little unnecessary. It had to end. And so it did.

- My theory on evolution is that Darwin was adopted.

- I’d like to go to Sonic later and order the best “suicide” ever.

- I plan to be spontaneous someday.

- All my years of watching Matlock will pay off some day.

- Lesson learned at church yesterday: Boaz = Biblical hottie

- I hate getting a handful of Trail Mix with no M&Ms in it.

- I wish I still had my Dream Team Trapper-keeper to keep all these papers in.

Grammy Review

Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers, & BOB DYLAN -- I start here with my blog because this is how I got roped into watching the Grammys. I wasn’t planning on watching because there are only so many times I can hear about Eminem’s “Recovery” album and how revolutionary he is as an artist (more on this later). Back to Dylan & friends... I seem to have lost my socks.... because they were just rocked off... DYLAN FEVER FOR LIFE!

Uploaded by yardie4lifever2. - See video of the biggest web video personalities.

Norah Jones, John Mayer, & Keith Urban -- “Jolene”. Dolly, I love ya girl... can Norah please sing all of your songs?

Eminem - His anger kinda terrifies me... but I don’t entirely hate him. I wish the Academy would take into account the number of seconds that will inevitably be bleeped out.... because I’m pretty sure it was about 1/3 of the song with Rhianna. Which brings me to my next point...

Rhianna - Oh girl. It’s not that I don’t like you... I’m just confused by you. You were once so normal...First things first... clothing is, in fact, an option. So, let’s deal with that and then (if there’s time) we’ll discuss your hair. Normalcy: also an option.

Side bar: how old is Dr. Dre these days? I was uncomfortable during his performance with Em.

John Legend - Looking sharp in that grey suit!

Mick Jagger - He certainly gets around well for a 68 year old. Great performance!

Barbara Streisand - Bored with the song, but I do love her. I want to go watch What’s Up, Doc?

Lady Antebellum - 3 Grammys. This pleases me.

Arcade Fire - Grammy performance or Mountain Dew commercial? Hard to say... I hope nobody in the audience suffers from epilepsy. And oddly enough, this was the only performance of the night NOT to involve fire.

For a complete review, please go to my friend Noel’s blog:
You won’t be disappointed.

Scratch that, snow has its perks

We stumbled across this glorious mountain of snow on our way to the grocery store.

Snow is fun until it’s not.

I have never witnessed snow like this in Arkansas... or anywhere really. Fortunately, my roommates and I have season 2 of Lost to keep us entertained until we are able to venture outside... which by the looks of things, may not be for a very. long. time. Godspeed.
