I'm on facebook and have some fun and lively interactions there. I'm not really 100% sold on facebook, I use it warily and my "security" settings are pretty tight. (I don't really believe I have much security there.) There have been some hilarious images being shared on FB and I wanted to put some here.
The whole Kim Davis (I'm not linking, you can google it) ridiculousness has been amusing for the memes it generates. Like the serious ones:
But more than that one, I really enjoyed the on-point, but hilarious ones:
Smart memes just make my day.
Here's another image I had to share about life in general these days. This is THE TRUTH!
And lastly I wrote about a comment made to me by a valet guy on recent evening. He was returning the GTI to me - six speed manual transmission (or "Stick" as we like to say) and as he got out he said: “I like the 6 speeds!” And I said, “I know, right?” and he said “It’s cool you know how to drive it!”
At first I felt a bit insulted, but not long after I posted that interaction, I realized it was a compliment. I felt insulted because of my own occasional low self-esteem. Middle age is a tough place to be (especially while I'm so overweight) and so when a 20 year old guy tells me something like that I imagine how he pictures me - like someone who could be his mom - and he's surprised that I know how to do something cool like drive a six speed stickshift car.
But you know what? I am goddamn cool!
I found this picture on the twitters - Pan Am 747 in the late 60's:
It looks like a movie set, so much room, such luxury! Wait, now I'm sounding like the doge meme:
Such space. So wish. Much class. Wow.
If only we could go back to these days...I love travel.
She doesn't even know Maru yet, but she will one day. Then I'll show her this picture from today.
Courtney sent this as an email, but I decided to use it as blog fodder instead...not tagging anyone, but if you are so inspired, send me a link in comments.
