If you haven’t read, Mer and I are huge geeks.  So, in preparation for Wolverine coming out this weekend, the next three Daily Crush’s are going to feature stars in the flick. Since I know some people have a hankering for Hugh Jackman, you’re welcome.

Uh, More Like FUNemployment…

Are we still raising the roof?

Are we still raising the roof?

So, unless that case of the swine flu you caught the other day has left you disoriented and/or amnesiatic, you probably know that our economy? Not so hot right now.  And California? Not the healthiest state in The Union. You may have heard that California has the fourth highest unemployment rate in the country; or that the entire state ran out of cash in February .  Today, I read that one million Californians are unemployed.  That’s right, 1 million.  You’d think that this would kind of bum people out.  You’d be wrong. Now that no one has to work during the day, people are happier than ever.  Take my neighborhood for example:


My local park was teeming with people sprawled luxuriously in the sun.  Some were shirtless, others wore bathing suits — and only two were just crazy homeless people.  None were tourists.  The sidewalk cafes were littered with Yuppy couples and friends, probably trading composting tips; gelato shops were packed with hooded-headed hipsters.  I could go on, except, what is going on San Francisco?  No one is at work, and no one seems to mind.  Is there a such thing as “funemployment?”

I’d ask my unemployed musician neighbor who lives upstairs, but he’s too busy blasting gypsy carnival music to answer.

You Got Served

This has been floating through the interweb for a while, but my sister-in-law just showed it to me again last night and I love it.  Why?  Well, seeing as I tell people off frequently, sometimes I’m just not sure if I’ve used “oh snap” correctly, and yes, I wonder this daily, even minutely.  A majority of the time (read: 99%) I’m right, but really HOW AM I TO KNOW FOR SURE?  Well, thank sweet baby Jesus, there is now there’s a nifty diagram to help me.

Now, you can go tell people off without fear of rejection.  Or something.

At least there’s a bright side

aka John Casey from ChuckMy friend Molly suggested this guy for today’s Daily Crush and I totally agree.  Meet Adam Baldwin, aka John Casey from Chuck.  His character is hilarious and definitely makes the show even better.  He looks like this on the show, but this picture is so silly.  Plus he’s in a sport coat and you know how I do.

Talk About Poor Timing

Posted in are you joking me?, topical with tags , , , , on April 28, 2009 by melsanie


So I have the flu and no it’s not farm animal related.  It’s just the normal, run of the mill, fever and chills flu, and I just so happend to get it during this awesome epidemic.  My mom immediately panicked when she heard I was sick and read me the symptoms of “swine flu” and hey guess what, they’re the same as the regular flu.  Honestly, I just have really crappy timing.  I have not made out with pigs recently, unless you count the d-bags in Boston as pigs (HEY-O!, kidding, I didn’t even make out with anyone there), nor have I had any contact with anyone who has recently been to Mexico.  And yet, this won’t matter.  I’ll be “pig flu” girl or something.  Ugh, stupid.  Now excuse me, I have to go get a blanket, I’m freezing even though it’s 90 degrees out.  Oh wait, now I’m sweating. FML.
