Sunday Morning News: Monkeys in Coats

Monkeys in Little Monkey Jackets

Oh yes, Blog Lovers, you heard me. There was a monkey running around in Toronto…with a cute little monkey coat on! It was seriously the greatest news article I’ve read in a while. Brian actually shared it with me, but I wanted to save it for news day! Go read the article about the runaway monkey, then come back. I’ll wait. (Man, I wait on you guys to catch up a lot.)

Monkey in a Jacket outside IKEA

Several things. 1. As soon as I saw this, I tweeted it to my blog pal That Ash Girl. We have a shared love of adorable animals. 2. The monkey was in front of an IKEA. For those of you who don’t know, I despise IKEA for it’s cheap unattractive appeal. I’m a furniture snob. I get it. But I mean…you should see our couch. It’s friggin’ awesome. Brian always tells me how lucky he is…to have a couch as nice as ours.  3. The monkey was likely running away from IKEA, because like his fashion sense (the coat looked SO cute on him) his furniture sense of style is rock solid. Run Little Monkey! Be Free!

Sunday Evening News: In Which I was in the Newspaper

That’s right. I’m legit famous now. I was in the Chicago Tribune yesterday for my Black Friday shenanigans. You remember how I was boycotting “Black Thanksgiving?” It totally made the paper. Well, that and the fact that Mom, my sister, Mary, and I were all dolled up for “Bling on Black Friday,” in which we won all sorts of free gift cards.

Our local mall, Yorktown Center, hosts an annual Black Friday shindig. The first year was all about hats. The second year was ugly sweaters. This year was all about bling. Mom did princess bling with a tiara, a mink shawl (that was given to my great aunt and was once owned by the founder of World’s Finest Chocolate’s wife), and a fancy antique brooch. I did Christmas bling, with a necklace of bows and garland wrapped around me. Mary did glamazon bling with glitter everywhere. Mary even got a $50 gift card for painting her jeans in glitter.

Bling on Black Friday

You can read the newspaper article on the Chicago Tribune website. We’re about 3/4 of the way down.

They interviewed us for a pretty long time…I was a bit worried that I would sound totally unintelligent. I think I did alright. What do you think?

The Sunday Morning News: Right Wing Crazies, Sluts, & Butlers

This week, I’ve come across a really special collection of news articles for your viewing pleasure. In some messed up version of reality, these things actually happen. Did you know that CNN was the Gay Gestapo? Me neither. A fantasy sex league in high school, in which male students bet on which girls they can get with…and what they do (or don’t do) about it…And finally butler school: Where can I sign up?

In more important news, Topango and Corey Matthews of Boy Meets World fame may be returning to TV…with their pre-teen daughter in Girl Meets World. The Boy Meets World long overdue sequel is casting right now and courting the two stars who married in the series finale 12 years ago… Oh Please please please! Yes! I’d watch it. I don’t care if it’s for teeny boppers.

The only problem is this: Right now (and I’m not complaining because I’m loving every sassy Christina minute of it) Mr. Feeny is on Grey’s Anatomy. And he can’t leave. He makes Christina likeable again. This is important. Mr. Feeny does good things for people in need. Always has. Christina needs him.

What do you think, readers? Which piece of news is your favorite?

The Sunday Morning News: Halloween Edition

So, recently, I’ve started coming across all of these insane news articles. I read about a school that banned Flamin’ Hot Cheetos (THE TRAVESTY), among so many others that I decided to start sharing them with you on Sundays. Each Sunday, you’ll get to see some of the more interesting news pieces…mostly fluff articles, but always stuff that will make you laugh or smile. (Unless I find something really moving or touching that just breaks my heart so much that I have to share it.) All videos will be short and worth the view. Enjoy.

Today is obviously the Sunday before Halloween, so I give you: Halloween news!
