5 things that suck almost as bad as losing a tv channel

My girlfriend wrote on Facebook: “Fox is out on DirecTV ugh I can’t watch the Atlanta Arizona game.” Well it cannot be worse but below are 5 things that suck almost as bad.
5. you write a masters thesis and then your computer crashes; you lose the entire paper. 4. McDonalds is out of pie.
3. snow blocks your way out of your house.
2. You stub all ten toes on the same coffee table in the dark
1. You open a bag of potato chips only to find not crunchy goodness, only tasteless air! What would you add to the list?

ciber monday will be a big day

Ciber Monday is defined as the biggest shopping day for the internet on the Monday after the holiday of Thanksgiving.
The shopping day could take on added importance after a Thanksgiving weekend that saw fewer shoppers and lower spending than last year (ap, 2014.)
This may be because retailers were making great eshopping deals even before Thanksgiving. This may have sent people to the laptop rather than the mall.
Research firm comScore expects people to spend about $2.5 billion on Cyber Monday. ___ information from

this guy uses facebook to find his stolen package

A man in Texas used two technologies to ketch a real scruge.
Firstly, Jeff Turner used his security camra which caught a picture of the man stealing a package – which contained a Houston Rockets swetter for his sun – from his doorstep. Secondly, he used Facebook to find out who this man with a hoody covering his face was.
He posted screenshots of the footage and hoped that someone would find this person familiar.
Thanks to facebook this scoflaw was identified. It’s not clear whether it was his shorts that gave him away or his gait.
KHOU-TV reports that the suspected thief is 11 or 12 years old and lives near Turner in Harris County. Apparently mr. steals allot was mowing a house near Turner’s house.
He told KHOU-TV that the neighbor informed him what happened: “He says he bolted off on his bike a little while ago – the kid that did it – but he left the sweater here, so we do have our product back.
Turner said he wouldn’t be informing the authorities but added that he wouldn’t be so forgiving next time. You have been warned jerks!

snow day

As some of you may know I am in Washington State. This means we rarely get snow besides in the mountains.
Today (November 29, 2014) is different. We have snow or rather had snow on the lowland. I can declare that I like snow, and was thankful that I was indoors with the fire blazing. What do you do when it comes to snow? Do you get it? Let me know either on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/tylershepard223) or in the comments.
