So a friend of mine texted me yesterday and said the following:
“Had a dream today (yes I took a nap) that I went onto your Facebook page on your phone and changed your status to ‘I toot every time someone likes my status, so I don’t check it on the Metro or elevators,’ and it went viral and you got 17 million likes.”
That’s some good stuff right there on a Sunday afternoon. And it’s nice, too, because it hasn’t been that long since I’ve had “friends” who’ve said really ridiculous and hateful stuff, presumably “for my own good” or because “I made them.” Note to anyone: when someone says, “You’re going to take this the wrong way…” they’re about to be awful. And I’m pretty sure that they’re just choosing to neglect the work of saying something in a way that wouldn’t be taken “the wrong way.” By extension, not sure that’s being all that friendly. Anyway, hilarious text. And 17 million likes in that context means I’d have a lot of work to do. Not sure my body could handle it…
A’ight, hey y’all. Not much to say here at the beginning of a short week, except that the couple I met in Savannah won’t be in DC for the 4th as they’ve fallen in love with Charleston and are going to chill there for a while longer. But I did make some tentative plans for some boat travel on the 4th at a thing I went to on Saturday that looked like this:
We’ll see if those plans actually materialize. People say all kinds of stuff over crawfish, horseshoes, and beer.
Here are the things you should go ahead and check out, if my silly little opinion means anything. In my head it does but we all know just how much weight that pulls…
So, “love is love” is a tautology, you know that right? And tautologies are really weak when it comes to arguing logically. I’m not saying there aren’t other pretty good arguments to be made, but that one is crap. I mean hell, some people love biting their nails, or getting blackout drunk, or having affairs. If you really believe in the issue, you hurt it by parroting this nonsense. That’s all I’m saying.
So much awesome here. Makes me want to watch Sahara again…
Indeed, fascinating. Since we’ve had the Sat tech for years now, and Google has figured out how to privatize it, it was a little odd to me that everyone freaked out about Snowden…Not that they shouldn’t have; just that I thought everyone understood that privacy is a waning concept.
Again, logic works. Use it.
Finally, the protest in Egypt is fascinating. It’s hard to know which side to support over there but I will say that Morsi’s connection with the Muslim Brotherhood pretty much dictates a fundamentalism that I would think might rub people the wrong way in the West.
