Hello there everyone and welcome to a wonderful Wednesday post. I hope you all are having a great week so far as we move closer to the weekend! I have decided that today's post will consist of the funniest YouTube videos that I have seen over the years so I hope you enjoy. If you know of a funny video make sure to comment below so I can check it out!  

Side note, Lux did not want anything to do with this post today so here is a picture of Hogwarts from Universal Studios Orlando which I recently visited. 

Joke of the day as told by my co-worker Richard:
R: You know how cowboys always have dogs with them? Well what kind of dog do you think they like best?
K: Um, I don't know?
R: A Dachshund, because cowboys get a long little doggy

How Animals Eat Their Food
One of my personal favorites.  

 Miley Cyrus Chatroulette
I am not going to lie, when I first saw this video I laughed really hard.

Purple Dye in Angry Girl's Shampoo Prank
Famous for the line "Well that's just great!" haha.

 Ghost Chili Pepper Pizza Prank
So I have actually done this to someone with pizza believe it or not and it was probably one of the funniest moments I have ever been a witness to. 

What Girls Think About During Sex - Jenna Marbles
I love Jenna Marbles!

I'm a Snake
This video wins the award for one of the weirdest, yet funniest videos I have watched. 
Epic Rap Battles of History - Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney
 This channel is by far one of my favorite to watch on YouTube because all of their videos are pretty great to watch. Make sure to check out the Sarah Palin vs. Lady Gaga video too!

Grape Lady Falls
A video so funny that even the show Family Guy made a parody of it. 

 A Bad Lip Reading of Twilight

Well that was a pretty good selection of the funniest videos on YouTube, but do not worry there are plenty more for next time. Make sure to keep checking back and have a great rest of your week!

Hello there everyone and welcome to a random Sunday post. I hope your weekend went well as we prepare for classes to begin this Thursday. I've decided to do this post on shows you should watch that are available on Netflix. If you do not have a Netflix account then get your friend's password or simply sign up because it is not that expensive. 

 First, here is Lux today. She is upset because I have not really been home a lot this weekend. In fact, she was so mad that she caught a bat, yes a real bat, and brought it into my room. So nice of her..

 A little tip I want to mention is that if you are looking for a show to watch on Netflix and cannot seem to find anything, you can download Hola which is a Firefox browser add-on that allows you to change your location to a different country and unblock thousands of new titles not available in the United States. You're welcome.


 I randomly stumbled upon How I Met Your Mother while browsing Netflix one day for something new to watch and was instantly hooked. The show is about a crazy close group of friends and their adventures in Manhattan. Plus there are many, many episodes that you can binge watch and keep you busy all weekend. Unfortunately the last season is not available so you will have to find it elsewhere. 

I absolutely love watching House of Cards, a Netflix original series which depicts the life of an American politician who does not exactly follow the law. Kevin Spacey does a fantastic job in this show and I definitely think you should give it a shot. It is also nice that since this is a Netflix Original Series, they will upload an entire season at once so you can watch all you want!

Have you ever loved a show so much that you just never wanted it to end. Breaking Bad is one of the best shows I have ever watched and all five seasons are available on Netflix for you to enjoy. The story line follows a chemistry professor named Walter White and his adventure into the meth business. Watch it.

If you are looking for a new comedy to watch and have not watched It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia then you definitely need to check it out. The story line follows a group of friends that own and operate a really run down Irish pub and their adventures as business partners. Plus there are tons of episodes available to keep you busy! 

There is nothing better then watching Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman work together as Sherlock and Watson in this BBC series Sherlock. Unfortunately there are only about three episodes per season and only three seasons available so make sure you watch them slowly. 

If you are looking for yet another comedy series because you are awesome and have already seen It's always Sunny in Philadelphia, then you definitely need to watch Parks and Recreation. The story line follows the Parks and Recreation department of a town called Pawnee and the funny adventures of all the employees. 

Have you ever wanted to watch a show that was super weird and you were not always sure what was happening because it was just really off the wall? Well then you need to watch American Horror Story. What is interesting about this series is that they use the same actors every season but the story line is different. For instance the first season was focused around a house that was haunted while the season after that was an insane asylum.

Anyways there is my short list of shows to get you started on an awesome binge watching Netflix filled night and if you have already seen all of these then you are awesome. Next time I do a Netflix post I will share with you my favorite documentaries, and yes I promise they are fun to watch.


Shower Thoughts:
Now when you begin a fun night of hanging out with your friends, you need to make sure to create a rule that no one is allowed to bring up any information that is going to upset you while you are intoxicated. For instance, any information that you have to start with the phrase, "Please do not get mad", does not need to be shared while everyone is drinking. You are going to upset that person who was having a great time, causing them to get mad at you and ruin both of your nights. Do not be this person. 

Well I hope you all have a great week this week and make sure to keep checking back for more post!

Hello there everyone and welcome to a wonderful Etsy Wednesday. I bet you did not think I would post again this week after my last post...Michael, but I put something together just to prove you wrong! I have not done an Etsy Wednesday in a long time so I hope you enjoy what I have found for you all! 

Here is an artistic picture of Lux for you to enjoy. 

Song of the Day:
Blink182, Down

Cherry Blossom Pendant, Teardrop Necklace

Price: $37.97 (+$6.04 Shipping)
This necklace is super cute with cherry blossom flowers that have been dried out and placed inside this lovely charm. It definitely is a little pricey since the flowers are not something you can easily obtain, but maybe you could substitute if you wanted to make your own. 

Chain Chomps Super Mario Nintendo Ear Biting

 Price: $32.50 (+$6.50 Shipping)
There are multiple shops on Etsy that have these earrings up for sale ever since the piranha plant earrings became really popular. I really think they are pretty cool. I only selected this shop because they boast that they are the original creators of these earrings. This pair is rather pricey so shop around and I bet you can find them cheaper.

My Sun and Stars - Moon of My Life - Game of Thrones necklace

Price: $13.99 (+$0.00 Shipping)
I searched around a little bit to find this item for a lower price. I highly recommend  to everyone who has not watched Game of Thrones to do so because it is really a great show if you can look past all the sex, foul language, gore, and other scenes that might offend you. Really though, I want this necklace.

Feather Necklace in Black and Gold

Price: $68.00 (+$5.00 Shipping)
 Now this necklace is definitely something you could make yourself with a simple trip to Michaels craft store. I really love how the one half of the feather appears to be dipped in gold. This item is rather pricey so like I said, get on over to your local craft store and buy a fake feather, some gold chain, and gold or silver paint. 

Price: $18.00 (+$5.50 Shipping) 
Now I really like this watercolor painting and I realize it is not an original painting but the style of the peacock is really nice. In fact, if I were to get another tattoo I would definitely pick this depiction of a peacock to place on my side.

Price: $37.00 (+$11.00 Shipping)
How adorable is this little terrarium that you can place almost anywhere in your house for guest to enjoy. This shop has many different terrariums to choose from but I love this one simply because of the cute little fox that inhabits the space. Plus the size of the bowl is rather large so the price does not seem to be too bad.

Wolf Necklace Set, Wolves making Heart, Relationship Jewelry, Half Dollar, hand cut coin

Price: $54.99 (+$6.00 Shipping) 
I absolutely love this necklace, maybe even more then the Game of Thrones one that I posted before. The price is a pretty high but the wolf heads are cut out of a half dollar coin. I would keep both sides for myself if I were to purchase this. 

Shower Thoughts:
I could not care less or I could care less
I was just having this debate with a few friends tonight so make sure you know the difference people. The correct form of this saying is, "I could not care less" because you are saying you did not care at all in the first place. To say that you, "could care less" means you were interested in the first place. You're welcome. 

Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and make sure to keep checking back for more awesome post!


Monday, August 11, 2014

Hello there everyone and welcome to a wonderful Tuesday post! I hope your Monday went well as we continue through the work week. Sadly as many of you have heard Robin Williams passed away yesterday which adds another unfortunate celebrity death to 2014 following Philip Seymour Hoffman. 

Anyways, Lux is here helping me write this post today so I thought I would share a picture of her. So helpful right?

Here is the song of the day:
Wasted by Tiesto  

 Over time I have collected quite a large collection of quotes, a few of which I thought you all might like so I will share them with you. 

"All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain." -Batty in Blade Runner
 Now if you have not actually seen the movie Blade Runner then shame on you. It is based on the novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? written by Philip K. Dick and is definitely worth a read and a watch.

"It's hard to be sitting right next to someone knowing you can't have them."
I am not sure where I picked up this one from but obviously it is fairly popular since I simply googled the words for an image and this came up. 

"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light." -(Steven Kloves) Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Now I really do hope that you have read the Harry Potter series and I am not ashamed to admit that I waited for my letter from Hogwarts to come in the mail when I turned ten and continued to love Harry Potter as I watched the final movie in theaters when it was released at midnight. 

"In darkness I listen; and, for many a time I have been half in love with an easeful death." John Keats, Ode to a Nightingale
For your sake I hope somewhere down the line you run into a poem by Keats and really just take a moment to think about what you just read because they are excellent and the subject matter is usually very far from a love poem. 

"Beauty is worse than wine, it intoxicates both the holder and the beholder." -Aldous Huxley
I love Aldous Huxley as he is probably one of my favorite authors of all time.  If you have not read, Brave New World then I highly suggest it as a starting point followed by, Island. 

 "You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." - Dr. Seuss
Everyone should love Dr. Seuss. 

Well I hope you enjoyed at least a few of those because I certainly do. If that was all really boring for you then here are a few more funny items that I have found on Amazon.com
Obviously everyone should invest in a 55 gallon drum of lube for the low price of $1,500. The person who left this review is my hero.
 (Click picture to enlarge)

You know what is almost as fun as a 55 gallon drum of lube? A lobster mascot costume ON SALE for $1,500!
 (Click picture to enlarge)

Last but not least, shower thoughts:
Why are some words so awkward compared to other words? Take moist for example, I mean that word is just horrible. Then you throw ointment in there and it becomes moist ointment and you have everyone in the room feeling weird. I mean anytime someone is eating cake and they let you know that you did a good job baking by saying the texture is really moist, try not to feel weird. Someone is eventually going to have to explain this one for me. 
Anyways have a good week if I do not post again and make sure to keep checking back for more! 

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Hello and welcome to a random post Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend as we start another week, inching closer to the start of classes. So I want to take a moment to mention that I have been watching How I Met Your Mother which has turned out to be a really great show. It is generally a comedy but sometimes they play on viewer's emotions and you get really sucked into how the characters are feeling like any good show. I enjoy these parts and hope one day to find Lebenslangerschicksalsshatz, or lifelong treasure of destiny.

“Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz is not something that develops over time. It’s something that happens instantaneously. It causes swirling like the water of a river after a storm, filling you and emptying you all at once. You feel it throughout your body, in your hands, in your heart, in your stomach, in your skin. Have you ever felt this way about someone? If you have to think about it, you have not felt it. Everyone does eventually, you just never know when or where.”

Yeah see that got deep fast didn't it. Well try reading it again while listening to Band of Horses: The Funeral.


Okay moving along, Lux says hello!

Here is another music video you might enjoy.

Lana Del Ray: Blue Jeans 

Now to the point of this post. Have you ever wandered around Amazon.com and found things that are just ridiculous and obviously not a real item for sale or something you would never buy? No you say? Well here you go!

How to Avoid Huge Ships for a bargain price of $279.14! It is the comments that really get you on this one, just click on the picture and it will take you to the page. They are hilarious. An example, "Read this book before going on vacation and I couldn't find my cruise liner in the port. Vacation ruined." For those of you thinking this would be the perfect gift, you're wrong.

This is another one of my favorites, Uranium Ore. As before the reviews are very informative about this product such as, "I purchased this product 4.47 Billion Years ago and when I opened it today, it was half empty." Some one needs to order this and see if you at least get the container, because I am extremely curious. 

So you know what every person needs? A Badonkadonk Land Cruiser/Tank for the great price of $20,000! The comments on this one are too long to post on here but take my word for it, you want to visit this item and read the reviews. A small snippet, "Now that my wife has kicked me out of the house and I'm living in my tank, I have really noticed the need for more ventilation. I haven't showered in six months and it is pretty ripe smelling in there. I'm looking into adding some windows."

Now you can get excited because yes, this actually exist. I have heard that it is not the most enjoyable film so if you have seen it or plan on watching it you will have to let me know how it is. 

This book is actually quite funny as Maddox does a great job of ruining the creative minds of young children by insulting their art work. If you can get over the language then you should read this one for a good laugh. 

 Okay so this is the last thing I will show you for today. The title of this product on Amazon is "Frito Lay Chips - Potato Chips Japanese Seaweed (?? Sushi Seaweed) fried with Rice Bran Oil". That of course sounds like the worst flavor of chip ever and the people who are selling this product are not even sure what flavor these are.

Well I hope you enjoyed today's post, and there will be more to come so make sure to keep checking back!

Hello again and welcome to a random day post! I cannot help but laugh a little in this post as I tell you how my co worker and I decided on a new slogan for our department: "If The Minimum Wasn't Enough, Then it Wouldn't Be The Minimum". Pretty great right, I think we are going to have t-shirts made because that is just perfect. In actuality we do work to the best of our ability but sometimes we feel people tend to think we sit around all day. Anyways..

Shower Thought:
Why does leg hair grow so much faster then the hair on your head.
Now this one really makes me angry because I swear if my hair grew as quickly as the hair on my legs then it would be super long by now, which it is not. I'm sure someone knows the scientific explanation for this and I am sure if I really thought about it that I could figure it out. That is not the point. Feel free to comment if you would like to explain. 

Lux is being a little brat today so I do not have any cute picture to share with you guys so here is a Simons cat video to make up for it!

 Also in case you were not already aware, apparently there are a few diseases that we need to watch out for because they are popping up everywhere. Listeria in our fruit, Ebola being flown into the United States, and of course the Bubonic plague coming from Africa. Make sure to cover your cough people, not that it will help you much.

This was just a very positive post wasn't it! Well here is a parody video to make it up to you! Enjoy!
