Lots of things have contributed to my lack of posting (turns out I had swine flu!), but no need to dwell on the past (oink, oink). To the future!
There have been SO MANY THINGS I have wanted to post about, and my wonderful friends continue to send me quirky things on the interwebs that they know I will adore– like this video from my friend Laura. I think I’ve watched it five times.
Or this Web site, www.peopleofwalmart.com, which has been sent to me by faithful readers Miguel and Civil War Dave.
These times are crazier than ever. Jon and Kate do nothing but fight, Fox News’ Shep Smith is starting to sound like a socialist fascist communist Democrat, the Republicans are threatening to teabag the American people and Jessica Simpson’s dog was eaten by a coyote! Yikes! Those are clearly the most important things going on in the world today.
And as if life in general wasn’t dangerous enough, Alexander McQueen has decided to introduce TEN INCH high heels to the world:
Grosssssss. I don’t know, but something about them reminds me of giraffe hooves (I’m a nature girl), which is oddly appropriate. There are more, you can see them here.
But hey, at least one thing is right in this world. Jim and Pam are getting hitched tonight! RAWR!
Happy snow day for you east coasters! Here is a clever meshing of clips from The Office into a musical. I like it! I like it! I mean, I LOVE musicals (just ask my musical-hating college roommate…) and I LOVE The Office. Perfect? Plus, you’ll remember some of the scenes from the show and laugh out loud awkwardly to yourself. Or perhaps you are one of the unfortunate who had to go to work or school today. (I, by the way, am still doing neither.) Then, you will laugh out loud awkwardly to yourself around other people. Eek. Good luck with that.

So after three glasses of wine, a delicious meal that someone else cooked for me, a gourmet cupcake, and 45 minutes of mediocre hilarity, JIM PROPOSED TO PAM! Yeah whatever maybe it was at a rest stop but it was perfect and I cried a little. Take a peek at the expert commentary I shared with my friend Doobie:
daniel: hey mallo bar me: DOOBIE DID YOU WATCH??!! daniel: uh, of course! me: i may have teared up a little daniel: im sorry, but that proposal was super lame me: aw see i liked it!
it was spontaneous!
in its own way! daniel: and totally weak me: oh whatever. daniel: girls
The moral of the story is that Jim and Pam are perfect, and Sarah Palin is the worst human alive ever.
UPDATE (or the reason Doobie and I are no longer friends):
me: sir you are now famous because you are on the blog daniel: hahahah woah, dont bring my future wife into the pictue
i would never propose to palin in that manner daniel: i would do her up right, and hide a ring in her box of ammunition during our Adirondack hunting expedition. Then, as she took aim at the mammoth polar bear, she would see the glint of the diamond and fall deeply in love with me. (after she took down the bear with a headshot)
