Swimming In My Head…

diving in the deep end…

2 Week Recap

Just a quick little catch-up post to get me back in the good graces of my blogosphere friends that I miss desperately (WTF, Good Bad & Ugly, Presque Isle Files, Sideon’s Sanctuary, In Repair, and Whisper in the Void:

– I have admittedly been lured away by Facebook and Twitter.  Not because I don’t love blogging – I totally do, but it’s just so much easier to say whatever the hell it is that’s on my mind in 140 characters or less.

– I’ve been defriended/unfriended by 2 people on Facebook so far and lord only knows why…but you know what?  Good riddance and lucky for them I didn’t  open a whole ‘can-o-punch them in the throat’ on them.  Okay?

– I have re-tooled my business model like 42 times to get through this unfortunate little sit-chee-a-shun called a recession and I’m still not rich…time to go back to the drawing board or the cookie jar…whichever is more lucrative.

– I have banned peanut butter from my life and the lives of the people that I love – something about salmonella, but I only looked at the picture and didn’t read the full story, so if that’s not the right stance to be taking currently, please disregard this particular status update.

– I have not worn long johns under shorts in a whole week, but that’s not to say that it won’t happen again because Florida has become Freezida this year.

– Had an awesome Super Bowl party!  It was great having it here in Tampa and I’m sorry gbu2 about the Cards…but y’all gave it a good shot and made for a nail-biting game.  Didn’t meet 1 celebrity, nor did I try…but in the movie constantly playing in my head, I was doing the VIP room thing at all the clubs.  I’m ok with the fact that I’m occasionally delusional, so don’t feel sorry for me…

– What else?  Let’s see…I haven’t watched the news in a good month.  I’m tired of hearing the anti-American sentiments of those that want to see failure of the new administration.  Somehow I’ve missed the connection between love of country and willful wishes of failure for the group trying to pull us out of this train wreck that is our current economy.  I’m specifically referring to that big-foreheaded, bald, thunder-chunky whose name I will not mention so as to give him undeserved press.  I’ve renamed him ‘Blitz Extremitybaugh’ and that “my friends” is what’s been going on while I was away from the blog…

Lastly, a friend of mine posted this on Facebook and it makes me laugh everytime – only because it’s happened more times than I’d like to remember, but being able to laugh about something can certainly make it a little easier to deal with:

Philadelphia ‘Phans’ – ‘Phightin’ Mad

As a former resident of Philadelphia and sports fan, I’ve definitely witnessed the phenomenon which can only be described as unique when it comes to game behavior for any sport.

I remember when I first moved there and I was walking down the street with a Cowboys sweatshirt on and literally got accosted.  I never quite ‘fit in’ throughout my 7 years of living there because I just didn’t get that angry.

The point of this rambling is CNN had an article about the Philly ‘Phans’ booing Joe Biden at the Eagles v Giants game.  I’m just curious why?  It certainly wasn’t his fault that they lost.  Philadelphia is definitely a democratic city.  So, what’s the deal?  My guess is that this is part truth, part drama – I’m hoping that they were already booing when the shot of Joe Biden was flashed and the media is just drumming some juice.

If it is true however, I’m literally just curious to understand the mindset.  I don’t know whether having the title for the city with the ‘phighting’ fans is all that awesome…just curious.
