Ah yes- the kind of Sunday where I really didn't accomplish a whole lot...at least not yet. The recent unseasonably warm spell we've had in the Ohio Valley has left, bring high 30s and rain in its wake. Guess it had to get back to January eventually. As long as precipitation, wet or fluffy, is not falling from the skies, I could get more worked up about other things...
And then there were four...Atlanta will host San Francisco to decide the National Football Conference Champion, and New England vs. Baltimore will try to keep Ray Lewis' career alive one more week when they head to Foxboro to face New England in the AFC Championship Game. I want to go with Atlanta, although they are hardly a safe playoff bet. Sure, they did get the monkey off their back (and finally secure future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez a playoff win), but I somehow doubt they got it in them twice in a row, and I doubt I am alone in that. Also, the 49ers are in my division, and for that, fuck 'em. San Francisco has gone as far as they need to go. I gotta take Baltimore over New England, but I'd take Rhode Island School for the Blind's JV over New England. Yes, I am a hater. It's football, fucking deal with it...
Saw a headline from USA Today's website on the Golden Globes: Jennifer Lawrence's bust is a bust. Something about her dress or some shit. This is why I don't particularly pay much attention to award shows.
Lawrence, who has been racking up nominations and awards almost the second her career started, picked up the Golden Globe for actress in a motion picture comedy or musical for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook. She even managed a great line in her thank-yous: "Harvey (Weinstein), thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here today!"
But tomorrow morning, I'll bet a quarter of the radio hosts and entertainment bloggers will be continuing to ask "what's up with Jennifer Lawrence's tits?" Then again, I don't want to speculate what percentage of the Internet is already dedicated to the subject of Jennifer Lawrence's tits...
Since my fiance has a criminal justice degree (and continuing forward with her studies), we watch a lot of Discovery ID. They way they rotate a lot of their stuff, we see quite a bit of stuff on stalking. Friends stalking friends, exes stalking exes, strangers stalking strangers, the whole gamut. One could then imagine my surprise and amusement to learn today that January is National Stalking Awareness Month. I know, every month is a thousand National something or other months.
As I inevitably tweeted: 5:36 PM - 13 Jan 13 @thomaskeister January is National Stalking Awareness Month, but you just now found out because it was hiding in your bushes wearing a helmet cam...
Since you too are probably just now learning of National Stalking Awareness Month despite it's basically being half over already, either good job staying on guard or nice job letting your apathy work for you.
