Best Boston Marathon Signs

Unless you were hiding from every news outlet in the world, you know that yesterday was the Boston Marathon. It’s a symbolic race for American’s now, and there were many inspiring stories that came out of yesterday’s race. But I also stumbled on this round up of the best signs from the race. And the signs on the sidelines are FOR SURE one of the most fun parts of any race. Click on the link and check them all out!!

These Hilarious Boston Marathon Signs Make Us Want to Run Faster

Let’s Talk About the Bachelor

I don’t usually talk about it on here, but I think it’s time. The Bachelor. Ohhhh the silliness. Over the years, I’ve watched the Bach on and off. But lately, it’s been more consistent…I mean, who can turn down wine and snacks with girlfriends every Monday night with an endless supply of tv personalities to feed our gossipy chatter?

All this to say, I’m a fan of Chris Soules. But he’s a little boring. I think we all know now that if the bachelor is beloved by fans, he’s probably boring. And if he’s hated, he’s more entertaining and dramatic. Not much of a happy medium…why can’t someone be loveable AND exciting?! Just not going to happen.

In addition to being a little boring in personality, the show locations were SO BORING. I love seeing all the exotic places they get to travel to. This season, there was hardly any of that. And there was a LOT of Iowa. I guess it makes sense for a boring farmer like Chris, but SNOOZE. Show me the PRETTY PLACES!!

On par with the rest of the season, the finale was a bit boring too. But I like Whitney, and I like Chris, and I honestly hope they are one of the Bach couples that survives.

And I think all the producers realized, “Hey, this season was pretty boring. Let’s do something crazy and stupid for the next season of the Bachelorette.” And so, in case you missed it, there are going to be TWO BACHELORETTES. Even the live audience was pretty stunned. Their applause indicated that they preferred Kaitlyn, just like most people who just watched this season. So why on earth are they adding Brit to the mix is beyond me. I’d say this pretty much sums up how confusing this all is:

So from most boring season ever, to strangest premise yet, I’m pumped to spend summer Monday evenings with the ladies watching this fiasco. Cheers!!

Social Media Shaming {Wrap Up}

So several of my college theater friends (and other friends) have been playing fantasy football together for the last few years. If you play fantasy football, you know that often a team could be projected at 135 points, and end up with like, 80, based on fluke underdog wins, injuries, etc. And every year, we have a gmail chain going to make fun of members of our league (sometimes me) who have scored particularly low.

This year, we are upping the ante. Our first week, my friend Clare was the biggest loser with only 83 points. Meanwhile, the biggest winner was Molly with 155. Through a number of emails, the group decided that each week, the lowest scorer (now known as “The Clare”) will be faced with social media shaming, which will be chosen by the highest scorer of the week.

Make sense? Here’s the simple version.

Week 1: Clare was The Clare. She was forced to post this to facebook with the “♥ her” comment:

clare

Week 2: Ironically, Molly became “The Clare” and was required to post a selfie, in a bathroom, toilet visible, with the comment “everybody poops lol”

molly

Week 3, when I ALMOST BECAME THE CLARE, Brett actually became The Clare, and had to post a throwback photo to Vanderbilt Theater with the hashtags #tbt #college #missthis #tightiewhities… As you might could assume, it’s a VERY tighty whity picture that, no offense Brett, I’d rather not post on my blog.

Week 4, WILL is THE CLARE! What you need to know about Will is that 1) he rarely uses FB and 2) he LOVES Nashville hot chicken, particularly that of Hattie B’s. So when our friends found the following advertisement, will was forced to post to his FB page with the comment “Finally! #hattiebs #mintyfresh.”

Week 5, CLARE becomes THE CLARE again! It’s only fitting she should be the first to hold this title twice. Sticking with the TSwift theme, the following was posted to her FB (note the amazing caption):

Week 6, it was my husband’s turn. Lucky guy. You need to know that my husband is a HUGE cubs fan. He posted the following photo with this caption:

Big game tonight boys, I believe in you!!!! ‪#‎DoItForMark‬ ‪#‎Cubs‬

Week 7, it was Will again. A very simple:

Week 8, my time had come. This started me on a slippery downward spiral. Thank you, friends, for taking some old photos and making me feel a fool. (There was this one time, in high school, that I took a dance class and they made me participate in a recital. Shut up). My caption:

Was thinking about starting an adult version of The Ohio State University Cheerleaders I even picked out a uniform! Your thoughts? ‪#‎OhioState‬

Week 9, Alex is The Clare. She is so darn cute and has very little dirt…so this is what it came down to…

Winter is around the corner, and I can already feel my skin drying out. Thinking I better get on this… http://www.uddercream.com/ #udderbutter #feelssogood

Week 10, my hubby’s turn again! Went with a Tswifter on this one.

Can’t wait to finally take the time to read this over winter break. She’s a real inspiration. Considering cancelling my Spotify because her art IS worth paying for, no matter what the haters say. ‪#‎truth‬ ‪#‎notashamed‬ ‪#‎taylornation‬

Week 11, me again. By A LOT. You may recall this slightly out of place blog post…This was my punishment for the week.

Week 12, Alex round 2!! I had a hand in this one, and I was pretty proud of the 40+ likes she got for it. Full of all the wonderful hashtags you’d expect…

“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” Following my inner moonlight with my ‪#‎starbucks‬ ‪#‎redcup‬ with a pump of ❄ ‪#‎LTD‬ ‪#‎selfie‬‪#‎coffee‬ ‪#‎justagirl‬ ‪#‎letitsnow‬ ‪#‎moonlight‬ ‪#‎madness‬ ‪#‎allenginsberg‬ ‪#‎quotes‬

Week 13, me AGAIN. But honestly, this one was not too bad. Just a silly little Elf post…

Decided to spread the ‪#‎Christmas‬ cheer a little early this year…HO HO HO!! Enjoy! ‪#‎xmas‬ ‪#‎mostwonderfultimeofyear‬ ‪#‎lovemyhubby‬ ‪#‎castsucksnot‬

Week 14, the FINAL week, thank GOODNESS. Landed on me AGAIN. So I was The Clare queen with a total of FOUR The Clares. However, due to everyone shifting attention to the playoffs, I never received a formal punishment for this. I was informed though that next year the name of “The Clare” will be changed, and aptly named after me. I guess that’s the final punishment. A shameful legacy.

Anyone else have fun wagers on the line for their fantasy league? Please share!

It’s very possible that this will be me, sometime soon. My team did NOT look good last week when I lost miserably to friend Andy. So if you follow me on facebook, and something you would consider “embarassing” appears, you know why.
