Cool and Awesome

TV is great. Sure it turns us all into Cheetos-eating couch slugs that will die from a plugged artery, but at least we had some good laughs, eh? Yeah...

Anywho, there are 2 particular television quotes of late that I have taken to heart. They are highly inspirational, and I greatly thank the writers who have changed my life for the better. Ahem. Quote #1:

The caption reads as follows:
"When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead. True story." ~Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother).

You know, I was kinda sad the other day sitting in my office at the UMNH. I was desperate for a bit of 'cool' or 'sah-weet' or even 'grrrrreat'. But, alas, no matter how many times I watched "Charlie Bit My Finger' on YouTube, I remained sad. If only I had known to just be AWESOME I could have avoided the tear stains on my deposits. Thank you, Barney, for your inspiration. I may never be sad again.

Ahem. Quote #2:

"Whenever I'm about to do something, I think, 'Would an idiot do that?' And if they would, I do not do that thing." ~Dwight Shrute (The Office)

Fact. For about a week I actually tried to think, "Would a cool person do this?" before I took action. Fact. This view is impossible to uphold because every time I would walk into Abercrombie and Fitch I suffocated from cologne inhalation. I now prefer to live according to Dwight's example. As long as an idiot would not do the thing I am thinking about doing, I step up to the plate and carry out whatever it is that I am planning to do. Are you with me? Good.

So here's how I view myself now:
C ool (Without A&F)
I diotic (In a non way)
L aughter (She has lots)
L aughter (I told you she has lots)
A wesome (Instead of sad)

Thank you Prime Time TV. You have helped make me both awesome and cool. By that, I mean you have made me MORE cool and awesome. Yup. Cool and awesome.

Holy cow, that was hilarious! The first one is my favorite, I didn't know it was from how I met your mother...the second one is making me crave the office.

It was actually Jordan that showed me the first quote. He said he wanted that as a poster or t-shirt... Christmas idea?? I vote we have an Office premiere party in the theatre!
