Good News Friday

1) Uhhh... Paint-with-Water, warheads, Colorforms, the drive-in, Scholastic book orders, Spin Art, TGIF, TMNT, friendship bracelets, Bubble Tape, Cootie, JELL-O pops, Mr. Yuk, Mork and Mindy, Duck Tales, punch ball, Atari, slip-and-slide, Double Dare, pencil grips, Bill Nye, ring pops, Carmen Sandiego (Do It, Rockapella!)... honestly guys, did it get any better than this?? As you all know, I'm very nostalgic lately -- so this site is officially my Mecca. It's called Once Upon a Win: Epic Wins from When We Were Kids. I think the site's design is a bit annoying, but the content is absolutely priceless.

2) I am not a fan of cake (only cupcakes), but I am DEFinitely a fan of this site. The sub-title of this site is, "When professional cakes go horribly, horribly wrong." And oh how they do. Check it out for yourself:

3) Stuff White People Like. I've always been a fan of this site, but I haven't checked it out in a while. There's some good stuff there. Like, Hating People Who Wear Ed Hardy. (Assholes.) And... Ugly Sweater Parties. (I hate people who have those. Or go to those. Or post pictures on Facebook of going to those. Does that make me not white?) And... Frisbee Sports. (I'm looking at you, Ben.) And... Children's Games As Adults. (Yeah, I love it, what of it?) And last but certainly not least, GRAMMAR. To quote the site:

When asking someone about their biggest annoyances in life, you might expect responses like “hunger,” “being poor,” or “getting shot.” If you ask a white person, the most common response will likely be “people who use ‘their’ when they mean ‘there.' Maybe comma splices, I’m not sure but it’s definitely one of the two."

4) Last, but certainly not least, this number from High School Musical 2. How can you not laugh at this? This makes for a Good News Friday every day of the week. Bet on it.

An above average contribution to Good News Friday. Thank you for the Clarissa flashback (She always had the coolest stuff in her room). I also love cupcakes more than cake. . .is that odd? I have an Ed Hardy sweatshirt. . .I'm sorry, and I also love disc golf.

Finally, Zac Efron makes everyday Good News Friday! He is a d(0-zer)^2sh

"There is no other pertinent information about this sport, and it’s only real value is as a cheap date for white people who like to be outside."

I'd probably date a lot more if that was an acceptable alternative to dinner and a movie.

I agree Ben. Lisa take note. Guys want girls who will go disc golfing with them. . . well, at least these two guys do.
