This is the 52nd week I have done “Thoughts From Last Week,” so this should be my one-year anniversary of this CAPSLove installment. But it’s not, as I haven’t kept up with it for 52 consecutive weeks. Instead, this can just act as a faux anniversary. Rather, this is the final TFLW of the 2011 year. It’s been swell y’all. Here goes nothing…
Reasons (pertaining to technology) as to why I could be classified as a Hipster:
- my TV screen is the same size/smaller than my laptop screen (roughly 15-17″?)
- not only do I own a VCR, but I use it regularly
- I also regularly use a portable CD player as a means to listen to music.
- I recently brought to my apartment, my record player and extensive record collection. While other people are getting iPhones and iPads for the holidays, I’m looking into trying to get my antiquated technology to work.
I’m seeing The Muppet Movie and (so far) I’m the oldest non-parent person in the theatre. Now that takes talent.
I think it’s funny that Christians are celebrating the birthday of a Jew. Because that’s what Christmas is really all about, no?
Why can’t you really say, “Happy Christmas,” but saying “Merry Christmas” is the way to go? Why can Christmas only be merry and not happy? Is ‘happy’ not good enough?
I read the first three chapters of, Uncle Tom’s Cabin and I was surprised how I couldn’t put the book down. I’ve never read the book before, but I feel like if I were to read it in public, I’d have to get a book jacket or something since the book is so controversial.
Best New Years movie ever: The Hudsucker Proxy.
