Truthful Tuesday - "I am a hypocrite" edition

Yes, that's right, I'm a hypocrite.  I've decided to confess...

1 - I have very frequently laughed when people pull up beside my car with music blaring.  I will often say to whoever is in the car with me "that's ridiculous, who needs music up that loud anyway".... you know, just as any old person would say (note: I am in my early 30's... therefore... not actually old... right? RIGHT?!) Age paranoia aside... let's flash forward to this morning:

Me - in my car
Music - Even Better Than the Real Thing - U2
Volume - Loud... I mean, really loud
Buddy in the car next to me - staring
Me - continuing to groove as the song changes to PSY - Gagnam Style.

Conclusion: I am a hypocrite... who also has a very eclectic taste in music.

2 - In my university days, I vividly remember being out at a club with my girlfriends, and looking over at a group of women in their early 30's who were also grooving on the dance floor.  I believe this is a pretty accurate recap of…

These are a few of my favourite things.....

Don't worry, I am not posting a Youtube video of me singing this song.... I'm just humming quietly at my desk.  Unless you want a video, because I can do that (just kidding.... or am I?)

Anyway,  I read alot of blogs, visit alot of websites, watch alot of shows and eat alot of junk.  That about sums up my life.... I'm kidding, but only half kidding.    So I thought I would do a post about my "favourites"... and yes, I spell that the "Canadian way". 

So here we go...

For a laugh:

This is my favourite parenting related blog.  And before you skip over it because you think that this will be a website with lots of parenting advice and tips on how to make organic healthy meals for your family... you are mistaken.  This blog is hilarious, and the pictures just up the "epicness" of each post.  Am I pumping this up to much?  Decide for yourself....

Listening in on conversations....

So, if you've been reading this blog for any lenght of time, you may have seen that I often listen in on other peoples' conversations... this is one of those conversations...

Overheard this morning while waiting to get a coffee:

Guy 1 - Are you growing a mustache for Movember?
Guy 2 - Nah, I'm not very good with the facial hair thing.
Guy 1 - Oh... well I'm growing one.
Guy 2 - Awesome, are you collecting pledges too?
Guy 1 - No... (said with hesitation)
Guy 2 - Oh, so you're just doing it for awareness?
Guy 1 - Awareness for what?
Guy 2 - Prostate Cancer....that's what Movember is for....
Guy 1 - Oh Really? 

Nice.

On a totally unrelated note.  My Pinterest experiment (trying something once a week from my "pins") has been an epic fail.  I am not very good at keeping up with things like that.  I'm sure you're all very disappointed.  :)
