I may like Canadians after all.  This is how the Canadian women’s team celebrated their win:

Pretty legendary, eh?  Obviously, (and lamely) the IOC is “investigating.”  I wouldn’t trust the IOC’s gauge of appropriateness though–let’s not forget that they chose Rio over Chicago for the 2016 games.

So party on my neighbors to the north; you may have beat the U.S. for the gold, but you’re ok in my book.

If you involve yourself in Law & Order: SVU marathons on USA like I do, you undoubtedly have seen an ad for Burn Notice. This past weekend SNL read my mind with regards to these ads:

Now all I need to get is a video of AO doing his rendition of Burn Notice ads because that is way funnier than this skit!

Reflecting on 2009


Warning: array_key_exists() expects parameter 2 to be array, boolean given in /home1/es7400/public_html/wp-content/plugins/reaction-buttons/reaction_buttons.php on line 54

As 2009 (and the decade!) comes to an end, I thought it would be nice  to reflect on the past year considering I’m a huge fan of “end-of-the-year” lists! I’m not a fan of personal info on my blog but I think the following is pretty benign. Also, 2008 was such a horrible year, that I was determined to make 2009 awesome. I think I succeeded… Here are some month-by-month highlights (consider this my supremely annoying Christmas card!):

January

  • Quit my job
  • Turned 26 (sayonara quarter century!)
  • Went to Madrid with my BFF

February

  • Enjoyed living the unemployed dream before it got boring and tedious

March

  • Started my awesome blog!
  • Went to Arizona for Cubs Spring Training, baked in the sun for what I would later find out would be the last time I could do that. Thanks for the tan Arizona!

April

  • Another exciting Cubs season began…

May

  • As quick as the Cubs season began… it was already over.
  • I learned the value of couponing thanks to all the frugal blogs out there on the information super highway! Not sure how much I saved but if my CVS receipts are any indicator, my year-to-date savings there alone is over $800!

June

  • Went to Las Vegas for the first and last time
  • Went to my first Cubs-White Sox game on the scary southside

July

  • Can’t remember much about this… I can only assume this means that I went on the traditional midyear/midsummer bender

August

  • Started grad school!

September

  • Reunited with my long lost lover and became engaged!
  • Went to Seattle with my family for an awesome Bears-Seahawks game

October

  • Formed a legendary karaoke band, “Annette”

November

  • My long lost lover moved in and I said goodbye to my beloved single life forever

December

  • This  month flew by, I have no idea what happened in December besides Christmas and going to Pittsburgh with my Dad for an awesome Steelers game!

So that, in a nutshell, has been my year. I look forward to making 2010 even more awesome, if that’s possible. Thank you also to all of you, my readers, for making my blog and my year worthwhile! Have a fabulous New Years, be safe, and I’ll see you again in 2010!

One Sunday morning a few weeks ago, I stumbled out of my house towards Walgreens for some much needed G2 Grape Gatorade.  Upon exiting the Walgreens, I saw a poster propped up against a tree.  It said “Expose Yourself to Art” and had a picture of a dude flashing a statue.  (See pic).  I thought that this was one of the most hilarious things I had ever seen.  While no one was standing by the poster guarding it, I figured some rando art person had put it there to inspire the community.  Not being one to rain on someone’s culture parade, I laughed, left the poster where it was and continued my walk back home, chugging the delicious Gatorade.

I was about halfway down the block when this exposeyourselftoartold lady walked past me rather hastily.  I recognized her as being another patron in Walgreens moments ago.  In her hand was a folded cardboard sign.  It was folded haphazardly so I was able to recognize it as the exposure to art poster.  She seemed in a bit of a rage and I was curious to know what she was going to do with the poster; she certainly did not seem like the owner of it.

So I walked a little slower and watched her continue down the street.  About a half a block before I had to turn down my street, I watched with horror as she threw the sign into a nearby construction dumpster.  After waiting for this crazy lady to turn the block, I crossed the street and retrieved the poster from the dumpster, happily amazed that I was now the proud owner of this sign.

I assume that the lady was somehow offended by the sign, which is lame, but without her being offended, I never would have been able to obtain the sign.  It would have sat there under that tree and I never would have known what became of it.  Instead, after a little tape job (thanks to that lady’s reckless handling of the sign), I am now able to proudly display this poster in my home!

Pet Peeve of the Day: The awesome decision the Geek Squad made to only backup half of my iTunes library.  How did they know I wanted nothing to do with the a million Tom Petty songs I had?
