Kony, Peyton, & a Blate

I have a few things for you beauties today.

Unless you're a caveman, then I'm sure you saw something about the Kony Movement yesterday. Facebook, twitter, and blogs were blowing up with links and videos. Apparently this has been going on for years but it's just being brought to the attention of the american public. If you haven't yet, take the time to watch this video.
yes, it's thirty minutes.
it's worth it.
trust me.

IF THE WORLD KNOWS WHO JOSEPH KONY IS, IT WILL UNITE TO STOP HIM.
IT STARTS HERE.

KONY 2012 IS A FILM AND CAMPAIGN BY INVISIBLE CHILDREN THAT AIMS TO MAKE JOSEPH KONY FAMOUS, NOT TO CELEBRATE HIM, BUT TO RAISE SUPPORT FOR HIS ARREST AND SET A PRECEDENT FOR INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE
.

then go here and pledge to make a difference. 

It was a sad day for Colts fans yesterday. 
Peyton Manning was released from our team. 
:'(
I literally almost cried while watching him give his farewell speech.
Not only am I sad to see him go, I'm pissed that the idiot we know as Jim Irsay aka the owner acted like he was sad. Dude, we all know those tears were fake.
As lame as it sounds, I honestly feel like Peyton died. 
Watching the replay of the press conference and a special on the years we had him on our team, I felt as though I was grieving the loss of someone. And in a way, I am.
Please pinch me and wake me up from this bad dream.

We will have so many great memories of Peyton and that's what we'll remember. 


On a happier note, I'm attending my first ever blogger meet-up.....
or shall I say blate, tonight. 
I don't know any of these girls, and I'm kind of nervous but hey,
cheers to new friends, right? :)

happy thursday
xoxo.
