I stopped to read the newspaper in the breakroom this morning and actually started tearing up a bit. Two years ago, Aaron Arnold was working at an Olive Garden and was shot and killed in the parking lot after a botched robbery. I was a teller at the credit union that he deposited his weekly paycheck at because it shared a parking lot with the Olive Garden. I only knew him from weekly small-talk....

Hot Chip “Ready For the Floor”
Parents just don't understand
Ski: is that me visiting your tumblr or people searching my name?
Lacey: people searching for your name - 22 people have
Ski: must be the law
Ski: why do u think i left the country?
Lacey: yeah...or it's your neighbors and they are CONVINCED that you are a child predator or sex offender so they google your name everyday
Ski: I knew Ms. Johnson was looking at me funny
Ski: wow, I'm either scared of who's after me. Or a little freaked out that people are searching my name on google
Lacey: probably your parents
Lacey: i think my parents google me about 10 times a day
Ski: my parents don't know what the internet is
Ellen and McCain Talk Gay Marriage
MCCAIN: I just believe in the unique status of marriage between man and woman. And I know that we have a respectful disagreement on that issue.
ELLEN: Mm-hmm. Yeah. I think that it is looked at and some people are saying the same that blacks and women did not have the right to vote. Women just got the right to vote in 1920. Blacks didn't have the right to vote till 1870. It just feels like there's this old way of thinking (that) we are not all the same. We are all the same people. All of us. You're no different than I am. Our love is the same. (applause) To me what it feels like just, you know, I will speak for myself...it feels when someone says you can have a contract and you'll still have insurance and you'll get all that. It sounds to me like saying well you can sit there (points in one direction), you just can't sit there (points in another direction). That's what it sounds like to me. It doesn't feel inclusive. It feels isolated. It feels like we aren't owed the same things and the same wording.
MCCAIN: Well, I've heard you articulate that position in a very eloquent fashion. We just have a disagreement and I, along with many, many others wish you every happiness.
ELLEN: Thank you. So you'll walk me down the aisle? Is that what you said?

Rhonda: I want to go to a concert and get drunk.
Rhonda: Well, basically I just want to get drunk.
One Tree Hill
Luke: who do you think is the hotter guy on one tree hill?
Lacey: i do not watch
Luke: yeah me neither, that show is soooooo gay
Random thought #4332
I do not like when my friends send mass text messages. It seems so impersonal. I don’t mind mass emails and I will respond to those if they ask a question. However, if I get a mass text message, I ALWAYS ignore it. How do I know the text message was not sent to just me? It starts out “Does anyone want to…?” or “Can everyone meet at…?”
I’m in the Baton Rouge airport about to fly to Chicago (technically to Houston then to Chicago) for work. I am sitting really far from the gate, but I had to find a power outlet for my laptop.

Facebook Stalking cracked? →
(via sarahschneider) Holy shit! I apologize in advance for creeping on all of your facebooks. Update: It no longer works. “Wow, that was quick. Somebody must have pulled Zuckerberg out of the hot tub for this one.”
Lacey: What did you get your mom for Mother's Day?
Tony: I gave her that 30 years ago. Me!
I was watching the Daily Show last night while trying to go to sleep and didn’t stay up for the guest. Turns out the guest was my Mass Communication teacher from LSU - David Perlmutter. He has written a book called “Blog Wars” and was there to discuss it. I remember in his class, a lot of our points came from posting comments on his blog.
Finally, I get to use my tax money the way I want to! I wonder who I can invade...– Lewis Black last night on the Daily Show
It doesn’t matter how old I get, I will always giggle when the power goes out. I guess it’s because when it happened at school or work it was like “yes! maybe we get to go home” but now I even giggle at places that I voluntarily go to…such as the gym…today. It was even funnier because there was a girl running full speed on the treadmill when it happened.

Scrabulous gets dirty
Lacey: funny how you chose 'untie' rather than 'unite'
Lacey: says alot about your character
Jake: with unite you could have put "reunited," which is something i'd expect from a dirty wretch like you.
First time at the dentist in 5 years
He said my teeth look awesome for someone who hasn’t seen a dentist in so long. This was the exact opposite of what I expected to hear. The cleaning and the picking at my teeth didn’t hurt at all. The 4 million x-rays hurt like hell. The position that they put that shit in your mouth just cuts into weird places (such as under the tongue or corners of your mouth). I have 2 cavities....
