“You are not our customer. You are the product that we sell. For us to say we’re going to protect you is like the poultry industry promising to create more humane living conditions for chickens. Sure, they say that. But you know they don’t mean it.”—The Truth About Facebook Privacy—if Zuckerberg Got Real
Earlier this year my friend Julie’s husband created a Tumblr just for the day to document all of the free stuff they got all over Ann Arbor on her birthday. So I’m going to get my friends to come with me next week on my birthday, henceforth known as “Treat Yo Self” day. If you live in Ann Arbor, use this site as a guide to free birthday stuff!
I cannot stress enough how much this movie, and the similar Valentine’s Day movie, irritate the HELL out of me. I’m sure it will be another big hit because it features a bunch of big name actors, but I have a little less respect for every actor in this movie. It just feels lazy, like they were looking for 2 weeks of work and an easy paycheck. I’m sorry, I don’t know why it pisses me off so much but it really does.
EDIT: Rej0ice mentioned that she thought it might be a sequel to Valentine’s Day, which makes sense, and irritates me even more.
Came across this article, which talks about how popular James Deen is with women, and how popular he is with teenage girls on Tumblr. I did a tag search for his name, and yep, the girls like this guy. Wow. I have never seen such interest in a male porn star by women.
I just saw a preview for this special and can’t stop laughing. The show features a couple that waited until they marry to have their first kiss. It is the most awkward and hilarious thing I’ve seen in days, nay weeks. My stomach actually hurts from laughing, and I can’t stop rewinding and playing it over and over. Someone had better make an animated gif of it. The link I’ve posted writes this about it:
“Throughout the one-hour special, viewers will meet a number of late bloomers, including a couple who are not only saving themselves for their wedding night but also saving their very first kiss. The highly anticipated and very “unique” first kiss is documented, a kiss that viewers will undoubtedly be buzzing about.”
I don’t cook much, but when I do, I like to cook AMAZING food to make my friends/family think I always make food like that.
So, I want to know if anyone has a recipe suggestion for a dish to pass this Thanksgiving that is not your run-of-the-mill mashed potatoes or green bean casserole recipe. Last year I actually brought a green bean casserole, but it was not the standard recipe and everyone was suitably impressed.
