These topics have absolutely nothing to do with each other; I was just feeling alliterative. I'm taking a break from the internet this weekend, so I won't be updating you with the mundane details of my life. Instead, I'm just going to leave you with a great quote, a great recipe involving vodka and some great links to some hilarious websites.
Starting with a quote of the day from my favorite news anchor:
"I don’t understand how people put up with this... on the left and the right. The crap coming out of their mouths right now — it just seems, to me, completely worthless.” - Shepard Smith on politicians
That quote came from this interview with Smith by Nando Di Fino at Mediate. It's a good read in which Smith declares his love for hip-hop (a man after my own heart) and says what was almost my quote of the day, "Sports is a big part of my life” (a man after my own heart). He also talks about how great the Manning family is (not gonna say it again).
Anyway, I couldn't agree more. I'm so disgusted with the whole thing right now. Politics is one of the reasons I'm staying far far away from my computer for the next few days. (Well, that and I'm planning to work on getting my book edited. Woohoo!)
Next up, I've got a yummy recipe I found on Pinterest. I've been hankering for summer lately; I think it's all this warmish weather we've been experiencing in the ATL. Anyway, I had to put together a list of summer cocktails and mixed drinks today for a job I did, and I decided I'm going to be making some of these Watermelon-Vodka Slushies this weekend. Since I plan to work on my book, I may need to go light on the vodka, but then again, wasn't "Write drunk, edit sober" the motto of both Mark Twain or Ernest Hemingway?
Finally, if you're single, you will more than likely find this hilarious, especially if you are a church-goer, but I think it's funny even as someone who hasn't gone to church in a few years: Surviving Church as a Single
Another funny website I stumbled upon last night is the STFU, parents blog. It makes fun of the stupid things parents do on Facebook. You don't necessarily have to be single to enjoy it, but it's probably funnier to those of us who are childless and tire of seeing certain people post their child's every waking moment.
That's it! Enjoy the weekend, kids!
