Parade Day!


How considerate of dear Barbra to have two delightful parade themed songs for me to have stuck in my head all day. Happy 4th, y'all!

Good Friends Cereal


While googling Anna Wintour today, a regular occurrence for me, I came across this wonderful photo. I can't think why someone would take the trouble to photoshop Obama and Anna onto a box of Good Friends cereal, but then I'm sure people can't understand why I do most of the things I do as well. So good for you, whoever made this photo. I commend you for being so thoughtful and amazing.

Anti-Gravity Dance

Considering how amazing I am, it's not often I get jealous of the feats of others, but today I am thoroughly jealous. This anti-gravity dance is the best thing ever.

I want this job title so bad.

Ellen's Celebrity Cookbook Ideas

Since every celebrity seems to be coming out with a cookbook, Ellen came up with a few ideas for possible celebrity cookbooks that I personally can't wait to buy.

From Britney Spears, Gimme Gimme Smores.

From Steven Tyler, Wok This Way.

From Justin Bieber, Gravy, Gravy, Gravy Oh!

And my personal favorite, from Cee Lo Green, Shuck You! Delicious Corn Recipes

My Grandpa Rasmussen

I'm not one to give big sentimental speeches, but I just wanted to say how much I will miss my Grandpa Rasmussen, who passed away last night.

He cared so much for his family and had all of us as his top priority. I've always looked up to him and hope that I can be as kind and good a person as he was.

Read My New Blog!

I know it's pretty useless to write a post on a blog that nobody reads suggesting that the non-existent readers begin reading another blog that nobody reads, but here goes:

I've started a new blog called The Gilded Beaver that focuses on the very best of music, television, movies, literature, art, fashion, and culture. So far posts have been fairly sporadic, but more regular than you're likely to see on this blog. I have big plans for this blog, so if you'd like to keep abreast of what I and the other writers consider to be the best in media today, subscribe and most of all, comment comment comment.

People Are The Best

Dear person who went on and on talking about your problems on the phone at work today without letting me get a word in edgewise,

When I said you needed to speak to customer service you demanded that I relay your story on to them in your behalf so you wouldn't have to repeat the story again yourself.

If you would have let me talk in the first place, I would have told you before you began your story that I wasn't the person you needed to talk to and not to waste your breath. So, no, I will not relay your story to the customer service agent on your behalf because it is your fault you told me the story in the first place without seeing if I was the correct person to complain to. I really am sorry for your problems, and if I had authorization/training to help you with them, I would, but I can't.

All I can suggest is that you form a support group with the guy who didn't know how many digits were in a real phone number, the lady whose life was ruined by a consultant not leaving her a voice message when he called, and the guy who said he would drive to Utah and punch me in the throat if the company sent him another email.

Good luck to you, and Happy Holidays.

Have A Very Oprah Christmas!

At work we all colored paper stockings with colored pencils to decorate the office for Christmas. I did a little something extra with my stocking.
