Tis the Season

1

Its the day before December 1st. Anticipation is too much! Family, Friends, Food, Memories, and well music. For myself nothing says more about the holiday season than all these things. A whole schwa-ck of feelings come back to me each and every year. Not that I’m any different than anyone else in Canada  but the nostalgia of good ole fashioned traditions are too much to live without. So I made a list of ten things that I’m thankful for, not to be a tear jerker but to encourage everyone else that follows the SM networks to consider how grateful we are to be living and experiencing whatever it is we do and ultimately to spread that festive cheer with everyone around you.

  1. Scary snowman
  2. Mistletoe
  3. Christmas Sweaters
  4. Classic holiday movie scenes
  5. Eggnog
  6. Surprise stocking stuffers… sad thing is I actually got this one year
  7. Awkward family photos… this isn’t my family just to clarify.
  8. The brilliance of marsh mellows on sweet potatoes
  9. My family, friends, and children
  10. And of course faces inspired by Christmas… “The Grinch Face”

Peace and love everyone.

Social Media Faux Pa

This week I sat in the Elephants Ear, one of the local coffee shops in Terrace BC and had an exhilarating conversation with a friend about blunders people post on social media sites. My personal favorite was the post “that band is so Emu”.

This blog is dedicated to all those illustrious internet posts that make me laugh, make me squeal, and pretty much ask why the hell would you post that for the entire world to see?! So with that I would like to say…

Thank you for posting pictures from a wayward weekend half way through your work week. (Usually pretty darn funny, until 10 years later when the backlash starts to kick in)

Thank you for advertising to the world that you drank a diet coke vs. a coke and saved yourself around 140 calories.

Thank you for announcing your new weekly weight loss program. (Root Cellar & PISE)

Thank you for those emotional feats of furry from overtly complicated relationships that seem to linger like a planter’s wart. (I think the creators of FB had a chuckle when they added the “It’s complicated” to the relationship status section)

Thank you for your creative acronyms such as FML, TTYL, ROFL, & LMFAO (This was so popular producers thought it would be funny to name a band after it. Very sad). All become associated with internet pop culture.

Thank you for the daily countdowns weeks before the event actually begins. 🙂

I have been guilty of at least one of these but nobody’s perfect. With that I bid you adeiu until next week bloggers.
