you had best be wearing green

The one day a year where we get to cause pain to others because they have forgotten to wear a specific color that day.  Wonderful.  So with that said, I most certainly did not forget to wear green.

I loved St. Patrick's day when I was little because my parents, I mean "leprechaun", would come to our house and give us stuff that was colored green so long as we could solve the scavenger hunt.  I'll admit, there were a couple of years where we might not have found the treasure if it hadn't been for sheer luck.  But now that all of us are grown up, our celebration of St. Patrick's day only includes wearing green and maybe eating a bowl of Lucky Charms.  I guess that isn't so bad, after all, green is a great color and that cereal is magically delicious!

a bloody brilliant band

The same question is asked just about every time that I reminisce about my childhood with friends: were you an *NSYNC fan or a Backstreet Boys fan?  Personally I was, and still am, a Backstreet Boys fan, but we won't get into that now.

Anyway, in my mind, the category of "boy band" is basically dominated by these two bands, and after their time, I honestly can't think of any other boy bands that are worth caring about.  Until now.

So I present to you the British boy band that has taken the world by storm: One Direction!  I realize that many of you may have already heard of this great group (I know I've known about them for a while), but in the off chance that you haven't heard of them yet, check them out.

That is if, you know, British boy bands are your cup of tea.

the best day of the year

You might have known that March 14 was pi day, but did you know that it is also national nap day?  Two of my favorite things all combined into one special day: eating pie and taking naps.  Awesome.  

Yes, this joke still makes me laugh.  I guess that means I probably don't have any friends.
