Where have I been?

When did the price of Shamrock Shakes exceed $2.00? It has been a long time since I have celebrated St. Patrick's Day with Mc Donalds, but when the young lady said "$3.15 please pull forward" I said to myself "She must have misunderstood me." When I got to the second window, I quickly realized there was no mistake. I was presented with a piece of fast food art that included whip cream and a cherry on top of a green and white swirled shamrock shake. What happened to my cheap, artificial flavored, cardboard cup shamrock shake?  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Kidd and Elizabeth ~ You're both so funny! I was just driving my granddaughter to school, we were listening to your Shamrock Shake story and cracking up laughing! So I couldn't wait to get home to tell you my Shamrock Shake story. I was going to call in but you two are already on the pregnant lady topic. Anyways ~ Last week I thought I'd treat my granddaughter to one on the way home from school because she gets excited every year when they come out. So we went to the McDonald's on 27th and Morgan. Now we too were confused on what size to get because we were unfamiliar with the size of their shakes. So we order 2 large. (I think we thought they would be like the size of a medium drink cup or a little smaller???) So the car in front of us gets one of the fancy ones in the clear cup with the whipped cream and cherry. We were pretty excited about it. I pull up to the window and the girl hands me 2 Huge Shakes!!! They were in the regular plastic Large drink cups with a Marquette University Logo on them and a regular flat lid (like Elizabeth said "with the things that you push in) I almost didn't want to accept them because they were huge and we didn't get our whipped cream or cherry on top!!! And I paid over $6.00 for the two of them!!! I didn't want to make a big deal about it at the window, so I took them, we almost died! We couldn't believe how big they were and very disappointed we didn't get the fancy ones. So I dropped her off at home, told her to put the rest in the freezer for later. Then to top it off, her mom (my daughter) got really mad at her and me. I was yelled at for buying her such a big shake. Now I never would've done that had I known. These McDonald's need to get this straight and get their employees right on this... Don't ya think??? I love you guys ~ I listen every morning.

This Land is Your Land, This Land is Lego
Jeff Fieren's a photographer from Nova Scotia who's been known to dabble in dioramas using only Lego building blocks and other lego items. Seems like maybe he's got some spare time on his hands - maybe a lot of it. Check out his website. He's built dioramas of each of the 50 United States. Some are dead on: dancing girls in Nevada; folks attending a big football game in Alabama; and the Wright Brothers in North Carolina. But others will have you scratching your head: a merry-go-round and funnel cake stand for New Jersey; two guys on swings for Ohio; and a roadway sign saying "Welcome to Delaware" immediately followed by one saying "Thanks for visiting." Come on, guys. We all know that's a Rhode Island joke.

Ed Sheeran, Wedding Singer
Did you catch this one? A radio station in Sydney, Australia had already arranged an $80,000 dream wedding for a local couple after the unemployed groom wrote to talk about their need to postpone their wedding due to personal and financial hardship. Everything taken care of, down to the last detail. So when a somewhat familiar wedding singer showed up, no one should have been surprised, right? Surprised they were when Ed Sheeran walked in, strapped on his guitar and played "Thinking Out Loud," the song the couple had chosen for their first dance. Nicely done. And it's good to know Ed's got something to fall back on in case this recording thing falls through...     Just surprised this lovely couples first dance.

Kourtney K, Trail Blazer
The Kardashians are frequently known for taking what others do and trying to top it. This newest one has me scratching my head though. You've heard of breastfeeding selfies, right? Giselle Bunchchen started the trend, posting pictures of herself feeding her children. And Alyssa Milano has kept the trend alive. They're called "brelfies." Now, Kourtney is posting pictures of her using breast pumps to express her breast milk to feed her child later. So what do we call these types of pictures? Pumpies?   After the show it's the after party. A photo posted by Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) on Mar 21, 2015 at 6:39pm PDT

That's Some Expensive Texting
The general manager of the NFL's Cleveland Browns has been suspended for four games without pay and fined $250,000. Why? For texting to on-field personnel during games. That's a serious wrist slap right there. A lot tougher than the NFL's former "Give Me That Phone You'll Get It Back At The End of The Game" policy...

James Corden's been in the late slot after Letterman for about a week now. And he's making a bit of a splash. This week, he had soccer star David Beckham as a guest on The Late Late Show, and they took the opportunity to debut a new clothing line. A new underclothing line, to be precise. You'd think more people would be taking shots at The Biebs and his Calvin Klein ads...

Stephen King on Indiana
Despite being a guy who chooses to write books that are over 1000 pages long, Stephen King can be short, sweet and to the point at times. Take for instance his reaction to Indiana's controversial new Religious Freedom Restoration Act. He's not a fan, and he puts it in a very simple light. No novel, no novella, not even a short story needed here. Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration act is gay discrimination, pure and simple. You can frost a dog turd, but it's still a dog turd. — Stephen King (@StephenKing) March 31, 2015

Meet the New Daily Show Host
Comedy Central announced yesterday the replacement for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Just as everyone expected, the new host is... Trevor Noah? Um, sorry, who? Trevor's relatively new to The Daily Show. Heck, he's relatively new to the US, having arrived at both spots back in December - four months ago - from his native South Africa. In fact, back then, he made his debut appearance on The Daily Show as a correspondent. Now, suddenly, he's the new host. As others scramble to find out more about him, why not just sit back and watch that debut..

Oh No He Didn't...
Justin Bieber took the stage as a back-up singer with Ariana Grande in Miami over the weekend. His job: help her with "Love Me Harder." And he couldn't do it. He flubbed the lines, then gave up and started dancing on stage and greeting fans to cover for his failed memory. He apologized repeatedly to Ariana on stage.. And he did so on Instagram afterwards as well. Accepted or not, I'll bet it's the last time he's invited to be Ariana's back-up...     Had fun with u Ariana, even tho I forgot all the words haha A photo posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on Mar 28, 2015 at 8:46pm PDT

The Beginning of The New World
Jay Z enlisted some top-level friends to help him announce his new streaming music service, Tidal. Beyonce was there, of course, and Kanye. But so was Madonna, and Nicki Minaj, and Jason Aldean, and Chris Martin, and more. Dozens of artists, in the room and on-line, to hear about and lend support to Jay Z's game changing idea. His plan is to get consumers to pay for music they're used to streaming for free. You laugh, but it worked for Netflix. The man could really be on to something big here...
