Black Friday- It's more than soul crushing

Today is Black Friday. This is something I'm sure every American knows about and probably absolutely hates. For all the people who do not call the States home, let me explain. Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving. It is the single biggest shopping day in the entire US the entire year. People camp outside of shops just to get there when the doors open at 5am for great deals on absolutely everything. I never shop on Black Friday because when the point comes that I am spending over an hour in line and competing for the item I want/need just to save a few bucks, I think I really need to evaluate the quality of my life. I however was forced to go out into the world of crazy shoppers today and it's not something I feel I want to talk about. Instead I present to you, some memorable, crazy Black Friday videos. Seriously, this is what we have come to to save a little bit of cash, it's insanity! (also, just more proof Walmart is evil and needs to implode)

The employees at Best Buy have the right idea (more proof Best Buy is where it's at ;) )

Blog Challenge: Most Beautiful Women

So after doing last weeks blog challenge on the hottest guys, this weeks is the opposite with the most beautiful women. Here is my list from hot to hottest.

5-Monica Belucci 4-Sophia Bush3-Penelope Cruz2-Megan Fox1-Adriana Lima
Honorable mentions to the following: Eva Gonzalez, Alessandra Ambrosio, Noemie Lenoir, Mamen Sanz and Salma Hayek.

¿¡ Really?!

I mean seriously? Christoph "Mr. Fail at defending" Metzelder and Chema "Never played a game for the first team" Anton are worth more than Fabio "I'm one of the greatest defenders in the world and have pwned you all at some point, I'm basically better than all of you, Il Bello" Cannavaro?!?!
¡Ay Dios! Yahoo, Get it together!

Love calculators

I was searching for some more desktop toolbar gadgets and I came across a Love Calculator gadget. I downloaded it and immediately started pairing my name up with all of my favorite hotties. The results were mostly poor and then Chocolate Bear found two other Love Calculators so I decided to try them all and average together my scores from the three calculators. I have no idea how something so small was so amusing, but these were my results:
Stephanie and Bojan
Average: 53%

Stephanie and Adrian
Average: 34%

Stephanie and Fabio
Average: 32%

Stephanie and Paolo
Average: 52%

Stephanie and Raul
Average: 43%

Stephanie and Matthew aka Best Buy Guy
Average: 47%
Basically my theory of Bojan and I being MFEO seems mostly accurate by these results.

I used my desktop widget and these other two love calculators:
Love Calculator 1
Love Calculator 2

I know you probably don't care

I know that really no one outside of Utah really cares about this and in the large scale neither do I, but this is important for one single reason and that reason of course is bragging rights!

The Holy War took place today and thus all of Utah basically shut down for about 4 hours. University of Utah vs. Brigham Young University is like the biggest rivalry in the state. Whether or not you have gone to either school, you have a side and you root for them. UofU are definitely the superior team and for many reasons they are also my team, the main reason being they are sometimes the school I go to and I plan to go to.

Anyways, UofU won 48-24 and therefore I have bragging rights for the next year until we beat BYU again. This also means that the University of Utah football team are now offically this years Mountain West Conference Champions. Congrats to the Utes!

I was just thinking there is not enough pink in football

Besides Palermo with their pink jersey's, there clearly isn't enough pink in footie. I'm glad Nike took my many emails seriously and have decided to change that by introducing the pink boot. This was apparently a big deal and even somewhat scandalous. Many people dislike this, but
I knew Bendtner was wearing them and he kind of looked dumb doing so, but not everyone is as unfortunate as him. I was watching the Intercriminale/Juventus game (which I'm not going to get into because it's serious epic fail on Juve's part) and who did I spy wearing the pink boots? None other than Amauri and the Matrix. I know Materazzi is a stupid Inter player, but I don't mind him. I think he's a cool dude and of course Amauri is one of my faves so this really cheered me up despite the poor result.

Blog Challenge: Hotties

This blog challenge is basically to share all the guys I find hot. I removed all the ballers to narrow it down, but if you really are interested a list can be found here. So here are all the non-balling hotties I love. Also, let me assure you that I know it's not okay to like male models, but I can't help it, the two I chose are just so pretty! I'm sure you can already tell I have a type so yeah, just go with it, it's good. Anyways, here are a list of my favorite 10 non-baller hotties, in no particular order:

Notes: I only like him with his short hair and while looking for pics of him, I realized he really reminds me of BBG! It's weird.

I am more unique than all of my friends

Sarebear had a blog analysis thing up on her blog, so I had it analyze my blog. Like her results, mine sound pretty accurate as well. I also found it really cool how it shows you what part of your brain you use when you blog and all that (yes, I already know I am a nerd.) I also typealyzed all of my friends blogs. Everyone but Venice (and me of course) had the same results as Sarebear.
My results:

ISTP - The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

Probably the only time you will ever see this on here

I found some recent pics of Enrique Iglesias. I feel Enrique is a hottie and I enjoy his music. I also normally really like scarves on men. There is just something about these pics of Enrique in this scarf that I cant put my finger on, but I don't like them at all. It looks like he's wearing make-up almost!

Speaking of guys who wear make-up, I came across this screen cap of actress actor Zac Efron's IMDB page. I didn't print screen this myself, but I think it's absolutley hilarious! Also, I have to express that
I just think this is funny!

I present to you, the Mad Hatter

As many of you know, Tim Burton is remaking Alice In Wonderland. I am a big Tim Burton fan, but upon investigating some of the alleged casting I am really iffy on this movie. I was doing my everyday surfing of the web and I came across this picture of Johnny Depp in his Mad Hatter attire and makeup. I love Alice In Wonderland and I in general tend to like Tim Burton movies so this should be good. I'm not totally sold on it, but I'm willing to give it a try!

Randoms Round-up

Juventus beat Genoa 4-1! It was a really good game and Yay! They’re now third place right below both Milan teams, but I have faith and top 3 is by no means a bad place to be!

Real Madrid lost 1-0 in a pathetic display. I can’t remember the last time I have seen them play this poorly, just EVERY SINGLE PERSON was off.

Barcugh won, but only by 1-0 so they’re slowly on their way to losing. Bojan only played for the last 3 minutes and then the 3 minutes of overtime. DWP!

The Jazz sucked horribly. On their 10 day, 5 game road trip they went from being undefeated to only winning 1 of the away games. They return to Salt Lake tonight to face off with the Phoenix Suns which they need to win. They aren’t even that bad, but they keep doing this thing where in the first half they build themselves a comfortable 10+ points lead and then in the second half they just throw it all away. Way to get my hopes up Jazz!

Fantasy Football for the win! I am 4/21 in the EPL FF league and I don’t even watch EPL so I am super awesome and I got 70 puntos in this week’s La Liga FF League keeping me solidly in fourth place and only half a punto from being tied for third!

I went and saw Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa. I LOVED the first one and normally when sequels are made they aren’t nearly as good as the first one, but I LOVED this one too! It’s weird though because I love it in a different way than I love the first one, but I did really really enjoy it. I might even like it more than the first one. King Julian is definitely my favorite and he did not fail to make me so happy! Go see this movie!

Paolo, my love!

Google has decided to stop playing mind games with me and when I googled Paolo De Ceglie, his official website showed up once again as it used to. In repayment for such trickery Google were kind enough to (poorly) translate it for me. Some of the stuff I already knew from the last time I google translated his page, but it was updated and the pictures were finally bigger and yeah. Anyways, not a lot is known about Paolo (other than Tuono and double cheeseburgers :P) so I thought I would do a post to inform you on my #2 Italian love (behind Canna of course.)
The stats first I guess:

He was born in Aosta, Italy. He came up thru the Juventus youth system (from age 14 and up) and is now a Juventus first team player. He spent the 2007-08 season playing for Siena where he scored a few goals. He is a defender. He is left footed therefore making him a left back. He can also play as a defensive midfielder when need be. He is 6’0” and was born on September 17th, 1986.

Anyways, here is a list of just random factoids along with some pics, so enjoy (this started turning into an MFEO list like halfway thru, but whatever, I just went with it)!
  • He started playing football at the age of five and got into because of his father, who is a coach and physical trainer
  • He loves crepes with Nutella on them (Oh my God, who makes crepes with Nutella on them all the time? Oh, that’s right, I do!)
  • He loves beach volleyball and basketball (I like basketball)
  • He likes Rihanna’s Please Don’t Stop The Music and Survivor's Eye of The Tiger (so do I)
  • He prefers to stay in and eat rather than go out (I can cook for him)
  • Paolo loves skiing and finds it relaxing, but has given it up (I skied once and I gave it up)
  • His family owns a youth football training camp where he goes and volunteers. He is also an honorary director there.

(in the middle of course)
This pic was at the camp his family owns, taken in June of 2008. Two comments about his pic:
  1. He doesn't have a mullet in it and yet the olympics were like 6 weeks after that pic, so his hair obviously grows bad super fast! Okay, so he kind of does have the mullet, but not nearly as serious as it was at the olympics....
  2. That's in Aosta where he is from and that seriously looks just like where I live! (Another MFEO, maybe...)

Blog Challenge: Favorite and least favorite words

Procrastination FTW! So this is my current list of my top ten favorite words in no particular order. I don't know why I like them, but I do. Very much so in fact!
  • nonchalant: coolly unconcerned, indifferent, or unexcited
  • nuisance: One that is inconvenient, annoying, or vexatious; a bother
  • zeitgeist: the spirit of the time; general trend of thought or feeling characteristic of a particular period of time.
  • discombobulate: to confuse or disconcert; upset; frustrate
  • bamboozle: to deceive or get the better of (someone) by trickery, flattery, or the like
  • follicle: a small cavity, sac, or gland.
  • orifice: an opening or aperture, as of a tube or pipe
  • shenanigans: a mischievous or deceitful trick, practice, etc.
  • palindrome: a word, line, verse, number, sentence, etc., reading the same backward as forward
  • flabbergasted: To cause to be overcome with astonishment; astound.
On the opposite end are a few of my least favorite words. These are words that when used I really truly cannot stand. Again, I don't know what it is about these words, but I just hate them!
  • horny
  • lover
  • reckon

The closest thing to Christmas spirit!

I went to Starbucks yesterday and I got the Starbucks Christmas cup. It really annoys me to see most Christmas stuff out this early when Thanksgiving hasn't even come and gone, but not the Starbucks cups. I guess it's just my consumerism tendencies, but the Starbucks Christmas cup is the closest thing to Christmas spirit that I get. I'm not a huge fan of the holiday its self, but nothing says Christmas like a chai tea latte. I always tell people that chai tea latte's taste like Christmas because they do. Also, nothing tastes more like Winter than a peppermint mocha. Go to Starbucks and get in the holiday spirit everyone!

Only 110 puntos short!

I have been nothing short of EPOCH FAIL in managing my La Liga Fantasy Football Team, the Ronald Koeman of FF if you will. I have been stuck in 7th or 8th place out of 9 and Atletico Dante is not longer active, so yeah, basically last place. Venice was nice enough to point out how everyone losing is nothing short of an e-life failure, but I disagree. I used to be, but no more! Even with 3.5 puntos being subracted I managed to earn an impressive 89.5 puntos and that is even without a player getting any! This may only be temporary and short lived, but it has forced me to take down the rope and reconsider ending my FF run. I am in it to win it. I may epoch fail by the time this is all said and done, but I am fourth right now and I want this moment to live on because I am so happy! I would also like to say Good Job to everyone actually keeping up with your teams. You are e-life winners!

Alessandro Del Piero

Happy 34th Birthday!
You gorgeous gorgeous man you!

Moving to the top of my Netflix queue

I was going thru my mother's documents and in my folder out fell the following sticker:

Willow Ufgood looks kind, but also like he can be intense. I wasn't even alive when this movie came out thus me missing it, but it looks mind blowing so I went to Wiki and did some research:

"A young farmer named Willow Ufgood, one of a hobbit-like people called Nelwyns, is drawn away from his sheltered home to save Elora Danan (a baby girl with a destiny) from the evil Queen Bavmorda who would see her destroyed.

Willow is aided by the disillusioned master swordsman Madmartigan, who has turned to a life of roguery, sorceress Fin Raziel, who has been turned into a possum by Bavmorda, as well as two diminutive brownies Franjean and Rool. They are initially thwarted, but later joined, by the queen's daughter Sorsha. As their journey continues, they face troubles and hardships beyond what any of them had imagined. Through it all, they find love, friendship, and wisdom. In the end we learn that the people we would never suspect are sometimes the bravest of all."

I don't know what you think, but this sounds like my kind of film!
