Long lay the world in sin and error pining.

giving of thanks.

- The music scene. I like concerts and I've seen some good ones lately.
- Southwest Airlines and their direct flights, everyday to Little Rock.
- My friends: I'm so fortunate to have people here that love me and love me well.
- The food. It's better here than most places I go. The grocery stores are better, too.
- It's not Houston. Or Lubbock.
- My job. They pay me and a lot of days I enjoy it.
- The shopping is decent. You wouldn't know it by looking at my wardrobe though.
- No state income tax.
- Not a swing state, but still a player on the national political scene.

the bachelor pad: loyalty.
Thursday, September 2, 2010
You'll notice that my hair is in the shape of a mushroom and my teeth slightly resemble the Rocky Mountains. How could I, a person that looks like this, think anything positive about myself or even the world in general? I don't know. Clearly, I knew from a young age that personality makes up for looks and dressing ugly is perfectly acceptable as long as you say you're trying to be funny. It does, however, become unacceptable when on more than one occasion you have seen a homeless person dressed in the same outfit.

the elsie: and the winner is...
Best Unprovoked Facebook Wall Post:
Mallory took this one home for several reasons, but mostly because I think it’s the funniest thing she’s ever said to me. I’ve known Mallory longer than I’ve known anybody else in my life and typically she’s not my witty friend. However, on this particular day she pulled out all the stops and dug deep into her Facebook wall-posting skills and referenced a quote from an episode of “Toddlers and Tiaras,” which ultimately led her to the prize.
Best Response to a Facebook Wall Post:
bMayes was a run-away winner in this category. I mean, I called her an idiot and look what she retorted back with. She was not only snarky and witty, but she also put me in my place and reminded me that I should be more like Jesus even when posting on someone else’s Facebook wall. Touche, B. Touche.
Best Use of a Facebook Status to Express Emotion:
One thing I love about my dear friend, Lauren, is that she tells me how it is all the time. She isn’t afraid to express herself. On this particular day Lauren ignored what might be considered “normal” and told the world about her sadness due to the break-up of Heidi and Spencer. I admire her for that.
Best Use of a Facebook Status to Create Intrigue:
If you haven’t had the extreme pleasure of meeting Priscilla Jane-Angie, you’re really missing out. That’s all I can say about that.
Best Use of a Facebook Profile Picture:
This was another category that had a run-away winner. Cari is funny, funny, funny and I’m certain no profile picture(s) has ever made me laugh harder.
Best Use of Facebook to Promote an Animal:
This category was the tightest race of all the categories, but because Jessica Dean was stepping way beyond the bounds of what is normal for her, she took it home. This dog has transformed my friend’s world and she has, with reckless abandon, made it her job to let the world know how much she loves her dog, Finn Alice.
Best Use of Facebook (Period):
Mary Virginia Bain Grandle is awesome at everything she does. Facebook included.
Best @lncow Mention via Twitter:
This one was tough, but ultimately the complexity of this tweet led Sarah Barnes to the winners’ circle. I like that she acknowledges that Jesus is completely responsible for our friendship and that she is doing her damndest not to ignore that or be upset by it. Which, to me, is admirable. So often we ignore the Lord’s will for us—especially when it comes to loving others. Barnes does not ignore the Lord when it comes to loving me or others.
Best Use of Twitter to Promote One's Self:
Seeing as how D.O. and Dean both have jobs that put them in a place to promote themselves regularly (I’m speaking of D.O.’s photography, not his church planting), it’s kind of surprising that bMayes walked away the winner here. However, go read her most recent tweets and you’ll find that she plugs herself and her “awesomeness” much more than anything or anyone else.
Best Use of Twitter and Citing Quotes:
@ElizabethGarton’s use of Twitter to quote people around here is both embarrassing and hilarious, not to mention: HUMBLING.
Best Picture Sent Via Text Message:
Another extremely tight race, Morgan Stallings took this one home because she actually received this photo from a stranger and then passed it on. So, you could say the stranger wins, but really, we all win because we get to see this.
Best Response to a Mass Text:
The original text, sent to five people about excitement over a soon-to-be released book by one of my favorite authors: Sloane Crosley has a new book coming out June 15!!!!! I’m pre-ordering it! Carla’s response, sent months later, after I had begun to read the book resulted in the best exchange ever over text message.
My brother’s response to a text sent to about six others which read nothing but, “AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” was completely appropriate and hilarious.
Best Unprovoked Text Message:
This was a no-contest. You can see why.
A hearty congratulations to all the winners and a big, "too damn bad" all those nominated and not chosen.
