First Off…HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
(A special happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful wife…thank you for two incredible kids…and for putting up with me on a daily basis. I love you.)
We Didn’t Need Science to Tell Us This
In a recent poll, people were asked to rate different popstars and whether or not they viewed them as favorable & unfavorable.
Not sure: 30%
Duh…I’ll never understand those that pick “not sure”.
Other notable ones:
Justin Bieber…Favorable: 20%…Unfavorable: 54%
Adele: Favorable: 54%…Unfavorable: 18%
Taylor Swift: Favorable 53%…Unfavorable: 27%
I love the new Avril Lavigne song…and think the “flashback” to her Sk8er Boi days was a nice touch.
The Great Gatsby
Our good friend Grae Drake from RottenTomatoes.com says it’s fantastic and we should definitely go see it. I don’t know if this one is for me though…plus, I’ll save my “popcorn lunch” for Star Trek next week.
Of course, Leonardo DiCaprio stars in it…and I know I’ve probably done one already, but let’s re-do it…
Top 7 Leonardo DiCaprio Movies
1. The Departed
2. Catch Me If You Can
4. The Aviator
5. Blod Diamond
6. Shutter Island
7. Man in the Iron Mask
4 Things I’m Really Into Right Now
1. “Inside Amy Schumer” on Comedy Central…hilarious
2. Reruns of “Friends”…the 1995-1998 episodes are still so good…it’s so 90s.
3. Scratch Cupcakery – My wife’s birthday is tomorrow…Happy early birthday sweetheart!…We were thinking cupcakes for the “birthday treat”…so I went to Scratch Cupcakery over there by Jordan Creek. I walked in…and immediately became drunk on the smell of cupcakes (which might be the best way to get drunk ever). I was only going to order 6, but due to be completely overwhelmed with choices, I immediately caved and went with a dozen. The smell alone will keep me coming back….now I really want a cupcake.
4. The Drake University Book Store – While I was at Drake from 1996-2000…I think I owend 2 pieces of Drake clothing…from 2001-2010, about 3-4 articles…just in the past month, I’ve been to the Book Store well over 7 times…and now half my shirts seem to be Drake-related.
Way To Look Incredibly Dated Maxim Magazine
Maxim Magazine’s Hot 100 List came out…and at #69? Monte Teo’s fake girlfriend.
Umm…that story has been over for nearly 4 months now. I’m all for making fun of Notre Dame, but even I’m bored with that story. I’m sure someone in their office got a big high-five for thinking up that.
Tomorrow…Downtown Farmers Market…and here’s what I’m planning on eating…#1…Tacopacalypse (probably 2 tacos there)…#2…La Mie (one pastry…croissants for kids)…#3…Dos Rios breafast bowl….#4…random cookie…#5…Rangoon of some nature.
At least I’m walking while eating, that cancels it all out, right?
AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
