There are a lot of internet memes out there. A LOT. But today I discovered a new one….
That’s right…a head-in-the-fridge. What? HEAD IN THE FRIDGE. Now I haven’t looked into this with any detail but I have no idea how it started. I thought the number was a phone number but it’s one number too short. I don’t see any logical conclusion to this but the same was for planking and owling. Don’t know what those are, see below. Anyways, if you can explain this phenomenon, please comment and let me know, I’d really appreciate it
Till next time…
Have you seen the news lately?
Yes. And then a police officer yelled to him to stop, and the “zombie man” turned to the police officer with flesh hanging from his mouth, growled at the cop then returned to his meal.
Yes. So the cop fired at the “zombie man” who pretty much ignored it, so the cop fired 5 more shots to finally kill the flesh eating man. The victim is still in the hospital with 75% of his face chewed off and hospital officials are not releasing any information.
“Maybe the victim is now a zombie“, is what my 14 year old said. Maybe. So is there a zombie Apocalypse underway? Well, if I was a doctor/nurse/hospital worker and the victim became a zombie, I would be selling that story faster than you can say “twenty million” along with the iPhone pics to TMZ and finding the most remote island to build my new zombie-free fortress. So my answer would be no, there is no zombie apocolypse because the news would be all over Facebook by now, in fact there is even The Miami Zombie on Twitter.
So why did the guy eat the face off the other guy? “Bad LSD” is what the cops say is the reason. A new form of LSD that apparently is worse than the old kind. Fabulous. All this just when I was looking forward to heading to the Florida beach this summer.
Stay safe my friends and please, just say no to bad LSD!

Project365 is a photo-a-day way of seeing and remembering those moments in life that so often get away from us. All you do is take one picture a day of something that happened to you or effected you in some way, write a caption, and post it to your Project365 Facebook album. Pretty simple right? Usually it is, but I found that I have gotten pretty busy and forget to take a picture, or maybe I did take one but forgot to post it. This is always a reminder to me of why I’m doing this project in the first place. We so often get busy in our lives, we don’t see the little things, or we forget what happened. That is why the project exists.
I love going back and seeing what I did and remember what happened on a particular day. I also like the fact that Project365 reminds me to pay attention to what’s going on in my life, the good and the bad, and reminds me to take a picture (except when I forget ).
Give it a try for yourself and let me know how you like it!
Below are some examples of my album but if you would like to see my entire #Project365 album, click here.
#Project365: Tuesday 4-3 Just viewed some of the tornado damage in Arlington. Most amazing thing I have ever seen and this was only an F2! I am just at a loss for these people and wish there was more I could do for them. More pics to come.
#Project365: Friday 4-6 Today I went to Rangers Opening Day…kinda. Well I went to an awesome tailgating party with some friends and the Rangers won 3-2! Season is 1-0 baby!!!

I have taken 5 roadtrips in the last 7 months. Yes, I am nuts. Out of those 7 trips, 4 of them were between Texas and Utah (1,200 miles each direction) and a trip to Park City, Utah at Christmas. During this experience I have learned a few things.
#1 Don’t always believe your GPS
My GPS sent me through Zion National Park, which is a must see place for all it’s amazing beauty, however it cost me an additional $25 just to drive through it when I didn’t need to. My wonderful GPS also sent me through one of the largest Indian reservations in Arizona where I didn’t see a gas station for about 3 hours. Like a scene from a scary movie, almost out of gas, no cell phone service, not another car in sight, no signal of life anywhere except for the hawks and vultures beginning to fly overhead….Anyways….
#3 There are no radio stations. Period. Not even a decent A.M. station to hear the news or weather!
So with my vast experience in road trips lately, I have come up with a few iPhone apps that helped save the day for me. If you have any great ones to share please feel free to comment below and share the love, because I have a couple more coming this summer. Enjoy!
#1 GasBuddy – This app is fabulous these days especially with gas prices hitting $4.00 a gallon and rising. This app uses your current location to determine the best place to fill up at the cheapest price, and it really works!
#2 Hotels.com – Need a hotel room for the night but not sure where you’re at, the best rates, cleanest hotel, or what’s available in the next town? This app will guide you along the way and get you a great deal, or at least give you some negotiating power
#3 Waze – Find yourself in some big city traffic? Waze will get you through it by telling you what freeways to avoid and how long you’ll be in traffic.
#4 Yelp – If you’re hungry, this app will tell you by category what’s around you and even has reviews
#5 Starbucks – If you’re looking for something a little better than that nasty gas station coffee, the Starbucks app uses your location to tell you the closest location. It’s does lots of other stuff too but when you’re on a road trip, you just need to know where you can get a quick pick me up!
#6 TuneIn Radio – This app allows you to pick up any radio station you want, from local to not so local. It’s awesome!
#7 Shazam – If you are so lucky to pick up a radio station in the middle of nowhere, there’s a chance you might hear a great song but you don’t know who sings it. Or you may be so bored you create a game with your fellow road trippers to see who can name the song or artist. The Shazam app “listens” to the song and tells you all the info you need about it plus gives you the option to download it right from iTunes!
#8 Spacetime – This app is great for many reasons, it tracks and send your location to whoever you want it to go to. So if you break down or get lost, just send your location! (Also great for tracking teenagers)
Now what I would like to see a great app do:
( And if you know of an app for these needs, please tell me!)
#1 Rest stop finder – There are several out there, but they all stink from what I can tell.
#2 Police radar – I need to know when to slow down!
#3 Short cut finder – I don’t trust my GPS
I don’t get what all the fuss is about and I can’t even blame it on the teenagers. I think the grown women, adults, and mom’s act a tad crazier than the regular crazy teen girls do over this book/movie. And on that note…I don’t even know which gets more attention, the book or the movie! I wonder which one makes more money? My guess is the movie. One day I will probably watch the movie but I won’t ever read the book. Sue me.
