Is it just me...

I love pop culture. 
Too much. 
I don't know anything regarding history, geography, or math but I do know the most random information about famous people. 
And not even important famous people. 
Like random people who have been in several commercials. 

Do I know what's happening with the economy?
Absolutely not....but I do know that when Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston broke up, Barb Jones and I wept for 24 hours remembering the good times. 

Lately I've been watching a lot of TV and listening to a lot of music, because I'm cool. 
My coolness can best be described by this photo:

Because of my influx (impressed by my vocab?) of Hulu Plus viewing and Spotify listening I've been noticing some things and I'm wondering if it's just me...

Is it just me or did any one else find it super hard to get over the fact the President on "Scandal" was Carl in "Ghost" aka the man responsible for precious Patrick Swayze's death?

I can say that I am now over it and find myself Pacey & Joey level obsessed with Olivia and Fitz.
Because I don't trust Shonda Rhimes since she broke my heart when she killed Denny, I'm nervous that I will be crushed once more by this show. 
You did me wrong Shonda...you did me wrong. 

Is it just me or does that Icona Pop song "I Don't Care" seem a tad dramatic?
You crashed your car into a bridge and you don't care about it?
You know how pissed I would be if I did that?
Not to mention how high my insurance rate would be...

And am I the only one who grooves super hard when that new Selena Gomez song "Come and Get it" comes on?
  

I immediately start belly dancing accompanied by my hand cymbals the second I register that the song is on.

Is it just me or am I the only one who just realized that in my favorite song ever, "Mirrors," Justin Timberlake was saying, 
"The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold"
I thought he was saying, 
"They can see this sound in my heart is now your hole..."

So really the actual lyrics make way more sense. 
I'm also an idiot.
I  have a bone to pick with Demi Lovato. 
Not only is her song "Heart Attack" grating it's a little over the top. 
Really Demi, if you fall in love you'll have a heart attack?
I believe heart attacks are due to poor diet, family history of heart problems, and high blood pressure. 
Not because Joe Jonas takes you back.
(Really Demi this is a front for my own fear that if a boy ever asks me to be is girlfriend, my heart will stop beating and I wil become a ghost that haunts the bathrooms of my residence hall a la Moaning Myrtle.)
Is it just me or does it make zero sense that McKinley High School can't afford a bus to take Artie with them to Regionals competitions but they can afford to have:
-A full band at their disposal at all times

 - Various costumes that correlate to the theme they have each week and the appropriate props.
 I mean what school isn't immediately prepared for a "boy band off" that requires exactly replicating the
 "Bye Bye Bye" video.

Not to mention we are to believe that they have better lighting than most off Broadway musicals...

But nope can't find a line item in their budget to get Artie a ride.

And is it just me, or is anyone else super pumped for the return of the "Bachelorette" in two weeks?
Because I finally feel like the vacancy that's been sitting in my heart will soon be whole once more.
See what I did there?
Justin Timberlake comes fulllllll circle.

I'll see myself out.

  1. Oh. My. Goodness. Can we please be BFFs? Our brains work like the exact same way. We would hit it off for sure.

  4. Hahaha this is an awesome start to my day! And I'm with you, sista friend, DIED when Bradd and Jen split. Speaking of- the other day I was watching FRIENDS, naturally, and the Thankcgving episode guest starring Brad came on (because they were still united then, *sigh*) and I had to mourn all over again. I can't handle it.

  5. @Olivia- I love that episode! It does leave a Brad-and-Jen shaped hole in your heart, though, doesn't it?

    I, too, am still not over Denny. I had one of my real-life style crushes on Denny (see also: Jim Halpert, Zachary Levi) and it was pretty rough going when we lost him.

    Also, hasn't Fitz aged well?

  6. Can't wait for the Bachelorette! Not because I watch the show even a little but because I am a teeny bit obsessed with you. Sorry, was that weird? P.S. Pacey and Joey have competition?!?! Who is this Olivia and Fitz you speak of so flippantly? I must know the deets if it is even slightly comparable to the one great lifetime love I have compared all other relationships to!

  7. At first when you said hand symbols I thought you meant like gang signs. I was like I think that is offensive to the Indian culture she is trying to portray. And then I realized you meant CYMBALS. I got quite a hearty chuckle out of it.
