How Cute Are These Boots

MICHAEL!

Michael Jackson

To describe my current state as devastated is an understatement. Michael Jackson was the first love of my life and has never left that position in my heart. He was so much more than a performer to me. He has shaped my life in so many ways. For anyone that has anything negative to say in this time, needs to take a good look at the kind of person they are, at their own integrity.

I love you forever Michael! Thank you for giving so much of yourself for our happiness.

And Two Seconds Later

So, two seconds after I posted about Zappos CEO (@zappos), Tony, being super popular on Twitter, Ashton Kutcher (aplusk) goes and its 1 million followers. See, it wasn’t that I didn’t know that was happening, I just meant Tony is really funny. He, to me, is definitely the funniest guy on Twitter and definitely has a following. I saw last night that his cat (@el_gato) also has a Twitter account, which is equally funny.

So, just for the record, Ashton is obviously the King of Twitter, but Tony is freakin’ hilarious.

Prom King of Twitter

@Zappos is definitely the most popular person I have heard of on Twitter. When I first heard this, I was a bit confused. Why would a CEO of a major company be s0 popular? The leaders of Corporate America are not usually the coolest people. Well, I finally got around to looking him up. I only read two of his updates before quickly hitting the “Follow” button.

He is the funniest guy ever. He is young and the leader of a pretty cool company. I went straight to their company blog to get a feeling for their culture. The are definitely laid-back, young and exciting. The first picture I saw on their website was of a bunk-desk. Two desks made out of bunk beds, with an employee diligently working two inches from the ceiling. Just the look alone was enough to make you fall out of your chair hilarious.

He has a post about being challenged to a dance-off by one of his friends’ kids, accompanied by a photo of the kid in his victory glory. I am jumping on the bandwagon. I vote CEO-Tony for Prom King of Twitter.

Books suggested by friends or blogs:

March Madness

ncaa

I see why they call it “Madness”. It truly takes over your entire life. Once you fill out the bracket, you are committed. I do not follow each team’s season, or ANY team’s season for that matter. But once I pick my team, I upgrade my normal competitiveness factor by 100.

I decided to stick next to my boyfriend and pick Louisville as the Champion. I don’t usually choose a team just because he does, but it is nice to have someone to cheer with. Last night, we “watched” (or followed I should say) the entire 2nd half of the Texas/Duke game from my cell phone. We were refreshing my phone browser every 15 seconds, dying for Texas to pull it through. We are both from Texas, but he is a TRUE Texas boy (Houston).

I grew up in Austin, but was never that attached to Texas, which for most is unheard of. Texans are very proud. I think the disconnect may be because my parents nor aunts and uncles were from Texas. I also feel like because we grew up in the suburbs of Austin, we were never around the cool parts. People are IN LOVE with Austin. When you say you are from Austin you win big points with folks, but I just never had that same connection with the place. Also, it is a much different city when you are 16 compared to 25. If I went back to Austin today for a week vacation and did all the cool Austin stuff, I think I would fully understand the obsession.

Even with the disconnect to my hometown, I still wanted Texas to win their game and am sad they didn’t.

Go Louisville!
