Pray for Orlando 

Since I live in Florida, I feel obligated to post this. These devastating news stories have been back to back. The Stanford rape victim, The Voice star Christina Grimmie being shot after her show by a suspected deranged fan in Orlando, and now a mass nightclub shooting that also happened in Orlando. Unnecessary suffering. Heartache felt tenfold.


With a heavy heart, I say tell a loved one how much they mean to you, and hug the crap out of them. xoxo

Damn, Daniel! Back at it again with the randomness. 

1) I’ve had a very sporadic schedule the past three months. It’s far from an open schedule, because I’ve never been busier with appointments in my whole life, but I tend to have many nights where I can stay up late. Mix my schedule with insomnia and now you’ve just created an avid YouTube watching machine.  Being single also allows freedom for YouTube surfing at anytime. So what kind of videos do you find watching YouTube until 5:30 in the morning, you ask? A shitload! You find Ellen DeGeneres interviewing the kids behind Damn, Daniel. Then you find videos on the movie they made based on Damn, Daniel. Then videos on why it’s popular. The answer, by the way: it’s a joke that’s laid out in as quick and simple of a format as a meme.   Outside this “younger than MY generation stuff” is the “inside my generation stuff”. This is the crap I love watching the most…like the Saturday Night Live  clips that always have the social media  comments on how every episode sucks and the show hasn’t been good in twenty years. Blah, blah, blah.. Sorry, but Kate McKinnon s Hillary is hilarious. Or Jimmy Fallon skits, or James Corden’s carpool skits. The list for late night shows right now is endless because it’s all so good.  Then one night after watching some Fallon skits, I found Stephen Colbert videos. By the way, Colbert  is such an under-appreciated talent, which is the same opinion even mentioned by the genius Steve Carell. From these strings of videos, I find ones highlighting Jon Stewart’s final episode. This is all golden stuff and I learned a lot about Stewart and Colbert’s closeness.  Finally from the Fallon, to the Colbert,  to the Stewart I found this skit below, at the already mentioned 5:30 in the morning. Sleep is overrated, my friends. But also a necessity to function.  Thank you bbc: Walhberg’s laugh is contagious and Ferrell’s New Kids on the Block joke is the essence of this millennial’s humor.  So hilarious yet as time wasting as every other skit/show mentioned. 

 
2) I dropped a 5lb weight on my foot last month. The result was a broken fourth toe on my left foot. Is it irony it happened moments after an Instagram post talking about bettering myself and being happy doing things that make me happy alone. (hello, like exercise???) Any reiki peeps who can help shed light?? I feel it was a message telling me to slow down and also to do more root chakra work. Hopefully it’s even a root chakra rebalance and clearing in some strange way? I’m expecting a lot more than just physical healing from this recovery.   #pain #footinjury #weights #bruised #rootchakra #chakras #slowdownbaby #slowdown #rootchakrawork

3) because:random!

Dating Naked show getting sued? Who cares, the Onion rocks…

Late last night I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed. First, I saw a People article posted about some chick suing over breach of contract as a contestant on a show, are you ready for this, wait for it, Dating Naked.  Then right below that article, I see the Onion posted a share from the AV club about the same article.

What had me thinking more than I should about this were the random comments to the Onion post. The Onion is satire, but in the same sense, real. So, just because something happens to be ridiculous, like, “man decides he’s taking lunch at 10:30am, hungry again too early,” these are still real people being interviewed. People don’t get that. So a comment or two even thought The Onion share was a fake article. The comments ranged to the typical perverts: So where can I see her goods that they didn’t blur out?, to silly girls defending her: Hey, she has the right to sue, they told her her crotch would be censored, to, so she’s suing about being shown naked as a participant of a tv show called Dating Naked? Makes perfect sense. Also going by the comments, apparently you could find the goods in question by doing a simple Google search? America you are greatest! lol. 

I could care less about the legal jargon and I definitely don’t know enough about it to care. But the comments did open my eyes to how awesome the Onion really is. Real or fake, satire or not, the Onion article was still more entertaining to read. It doesn’t matter how ridiculous the story, the Onion is the funniest. You can be the judge by looking at both articles I linked above. The Onion, I heart you. Rock on.

Happy weekend,
