Just wanted to throw out a weekend wrap-up on a few things…
1. I had an interesting tweet conversation with Sunshine on Twitter recently. I had mentioned that I was watching one of my guilty pleasures, Mantracker, and it was an episode I hadn’t seen before (turns out it was, afterall). Fortran had mentioned that he thought all of the episodes had been shown on U.S. television when Sunshine decided to pipe in with:
At this point I felt the need to tweet that she has her favorites and I’ve got mine…
Sunshine’s favorite singer is Jann Arden. I need to state categorically right now that I certainly don’t mind Arden’s music. Is it my ideal sound to crank up when I’m driving around town? No…but I’m quite familiar with her music and have been for quite some time.
In fact, here is one of my favorite Jann Arden songs:
Good stuff, right? ANYWAY…Sunshine had a pretty amusing reply:
We were both pretty entertained by this series of tweets (we normally entertain ourselves quite easily, in fact). And I’ll be honest…I really didn’t think much about adding the “@JannArden” to each tweet that was made. Turns out, Arden herself happened to be reading the conversation and gave me her thoughts:
Again, let me state that I’ve certainly got NOTHING against Jann Arden or her music. It was more of an inside joke against Sunshine because she’s such a fan of Arden and was poking fun at my Mantracker man-crush.
Ahhh well. At the end of the day, it’s all Canadian content so I guess it’s all good. AMIRIGHT???
2. Speaking of Twitter, I actually decided to send yesterday’s blog post to the official Canadian McDonald’s twitter account (at least I assume that’s what it is). Obviously, I’m extremely disappointed with the decision to not carry Shamrock Shakes in Canada. But y’know what? Twitter can sometimes be a bit more powerful than you’d expect:
Well whadya know? Spelling notwithstanding, I’m actually kinda impressed. Doubt it’ll go anywhere, but still…
3. I weighed-in on Wednesday this week, but I didn’t blog about it. It wasn’t really any major reason, I just had other posts that I wanted to throw up on the blog instead. I ended up at 215.5lbs…which I’m not really sure is a good thing or a bad thing.
Y’see, the “biggest loser” contest at work is done. It was done last week, actually. So last weekend I bought a new digital scale and really, I don’t know for sure if the results are 100% accurate or not in comparison to the other scale from work.
I guess what I’m saying is that I’m going to re-post my “biggest loser” weight loss deal next week, once I can make a comparison from the same scale two weeks in a row.
Make sense? Good…because I weighed myself this morning and was at 217lbs so I need to get my fat ass in gear if I’m ever gonna hit my 200lb target by year end.
4. It’s just been a good Twitter week, I guess. I had no idea that one of my favorite local radio DJ’s, The Crawdaddy, had started following me. I was further impressed when he added me to one of his #FollowFriday posts. So I did what any rock radio listener should do on a Friday afternoon: request a song.
And sure ’nuff…The Crawdaddy came through for me:
Yep…I requested “Nothin’ but a good time”. Kinda sums it all up, doesn’t it?
Enjoy your weekend!!
