I just thought I'd post a few things that have made me happy in the last little while. And not happy in the "pure joy that only comes from keeping the commandments" type happy, but in the friggin hilarious makes me lollerz daily type of happiness.
If you haven't already, add these following websites to your Google Reader now....
PREMISE: People take pictures of the hooligans that shop at the local WalMart and send then in to be posted and ridiculed. Best. Idea. Ever. Oh, you want an example of what you'll see? Ok, here...
This site is updated every day sometimes multiple times a day. It's a can't miss. And now, my WalMart shopping trip is made more interesting as I keep my phone handy and in the camera mode. I will send something in to this site if it's the last thing I do. Promise.
PREMISE: People send in (what else?) awkward family photos. Some are more awkward than others but they are all entertaining in their own way.
....and my personal favorite for reasons I can't explain...
PREMISE: People order cakes and the cake decorators take it upon themselves to misspell words, misunderstand the order, create disgusting looking cakes, and make the cakes as unappetizing as possible....these people then send in a photo of these cakes and hilarious commentary ensues. Stands and I had plans of going to the book signing of the founder of this site last week but for various reasons (including the swine flu) we didn't quite make it.
This site runs the gamut....wedding cakes, Lenin cakes (yes, Lenin), creepy birthday cakes. It's the site that makes me go ::smacking head:: WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS????? I also browse the bakery at every grocery store I go into hoping to see something worthy of a picture to send in. This one will be a bit more difficult to get published on than peopleofwalmart.com though... the bakers around here are so far proving themselves to be undumb.
So add these to your Google Readers, add the Google app to your iPhone and you will never be bored while sitting and waiting for an oil change, sitting in the carpool lane at your local school or during sacrament meeti....er, I mean at a particularly long stop light. Thank me later.
As for TV, I have officially broken up with Heroes. We grew apart. It wasn't me, it was them. Dumb storylines. I was sick of most of the characters. I don't have 40 minutes to spend a week watching it anymore. Gty is trying to carry on without me. We'll see how long he lasts.
In it's place I have added Hoarders and will begin watching Obsessed (as soon as my DVR catches one) both on A&E. These kinds of people were always my favorites on Oprah and Dr. Phil...why not a full hour dedicated to them? Why not indeed.
And my new favorite TV show?
I adore Joel McHale and, not surprisingly, the directors and producers are from a couple of my all-time favorite shows....Scrubs and Arrested Development. If you haven't given it a chance, give it one now.
I think that's it for now.... my life revolves around being entertained so I'm a bit of an expert on the matter. If you don't like any of these endorsements I offer a full money-back guarantee.
