According to Facebook

Does anyone else wake up in the morning and immediately check Facebook like it's the morning paper?  It has seriously become one of my greatest news sources.  I can tell you who won the game, what asinine anti-education bills are being proposed, and a near play-by-play of Charlie Sheen antics within minutes of checking my news feed.

My second favorite news source is The View.  I can't get enough of the "Hot Topics" segments (and get overly excited when they feature A Day of Hot Topics). 

My boyfriend is constantly annoyed amused by the information I relay to him from these sources.  What has our world come to when my knowledge of world happenings is reduced to 140 characters or a sound byte on a daytime talk show?  In my defense, though, I do make it a habit to browse MSN a couple times each day, scanning headlines and researching topics of interest.  I don't think I would say I'm well-informed, but at least I have a general idea of what's happening in the world.  

This morning, I woke up to posts about Fat Tuesday celebrations and Paczki indulgence (which I've never even heard of before today).  I guess that means the Lenten season begins tomorrow.  This means nothing to me, as a non-Catholic, except that Easter is 40 days away.  This is a good thing, though, because my birthday always falls during Lent, and I will NOT be giving up my cake! 

Also, I do not have an excuse to be a glutton today, which is good because I can't afford to.  After photos from last night's Zumba event (Jessica's debut as an instructor... yay, Jess!  We are so proud of you!) surfaced on the Internet, I am reminded that I still have a long journey ahead of me. Yikes!!  No Paczkis for this girl!
