What's Ellen Tailor Wearing Today - August 30, 2013

I love wearing a few different bracelets with my watch everyday. I call it an "arm party." But there's one thing that always throws off the entire look...the ugly black hair tie!

Ladies, you know what I'm talking about. The black rubber hairband that cuts off circulation to your wrist and leaves a U-G-L-Y dent in your hair. I've got your solution...

Love Me Knot

These are the hottest trend and the cutest (and useful) accessory to any outfit. Perfect for moms on-the-go or a gift for your daughter as she heads back to school. There's so many different styles! Camo, studs, and my personal fav, the black & gold chevron.

Want to WIN a 5-pack from Love Me Knot's Fall Collection??

My good friend, and star of season 13 of ABC's The Bachelor, Molly Mesnick has your chance! All winners will get to choose a 5-pack from Love Me Knot's Fall Collection. (Good luck trying to pick your favorite. They're all must haves!) Click HERE to enter!

What are You Kidding Me Story: He tied weed to the arrow why?


Out of Washington ... Shot in The Dark
 

On Tuesday morning, a 36-year-old in Bellingham, Washington named David Wayne Jordan tried to get some weed to his incarcerated friends . . . by attaching it to an ARROW and shooting it through a window on the second floor.

 

Apparently he needed some more practice before he tried it though, because he MISSED the window, and the arrow landed on the roof.

 

One of the employees happened to see it, and Jordan was arrested a short time later when cops went to his house, and the bow was still sitting in his car.

 

The best part is that he claims he was actually hunting a SQUIRREL, although he couldn't explain why the arrow needed to have a bag of POT taped to it.  Which, by the way, only contained enough marijuana for about one or two joints.

 

Jordan was charged with trying to introduce contraband into a corrections facility, obstructing law enforcement, and resisting arrest.  He's now being held in the same jail he tried to shoot the arrow into.

What are You Kidding Me Story: He shot what off?


Out of West Virginia ... Ohhhhh Nuts!
 

When it comes to not getting caught, criminals aren't always careful.  But it's KIND OF understandable why this guy blew it . . .
 
A 23-year-old drug dealer named Ladarean Mixon showed up at an emergency room in Charleston, West Virginia around 4:00 A.M. Tuesday morning . . . because he'd accidentally shot one of his own TESTICLES off.  Which explains why his mind wasn't in the game.  Because apparently Ladarean forgot to leave his large bag of HEROIN at home.
 
While he was being wheeled into the ER, the bag of heroin fell out of his pocket.  And Ladarean ended up being booked for felony drug possession with intent to sell. The two friends who dropped him off ALSO got arrested on drug charges.  And two women who claimed to be Ladarean's sisters were arrested for lying to police about his name.

What are You Kidding Me Story: Locked Out

Out of New Hampshire … Locked Out

Nickolas Messier decided to take a 5 finger discount from K-Mart over the weekend.  
He went to the electronics department grabbed a few items and as security, employees, and God watched…he made a run for it through the garden center.  He ran through the beautiful flowers, out the door, and got to his car, and then he couldn’t get in because…well…he had locked his keys in his car.  He then took off running, but since his car was there the cops just ran his plates and easily caught him.

Still Transforming: The BIG Thing

 

The last few months have been somewhat tough for me.  As I stated in an earlier blog I officially feel like I started my midlife crisis.  It kicked off with a large dose of anxiety, which lead to some deep soul searching and counseling.  I am at the beginning of the journey, but what I have learned about myself has been enlightening on many levels.  What you need to know about me is that I have always been looking for the NEXT big thing....the NEXT challenge.  And what I have come to realize is the BIG thing and greatest challenge of a man's life is in front of me.  It is in the form of a beautiful green eyed blonde and three children.  And I realized that everyday can be a BIG day when I focus on making my impact on my family, friends, and coworker.  

I have been so busy looking to the future that I often times missed out on the blessings of the present.  And I have to say that releasing myself from the need to get to the NEXT BIG thing has been awesome.  I still have a lot to learn about living in the moment, but what I have learned so far has been both refreshing and strange.  It is strange because I no longer have this nagging anxiety or tension that always looking for the NEXT BIG thing brought into my life.  And I now realize that anxiety and tension has been with me since I was about 15 years-old.  So to let it go has not been easy, but I have noticed that I feel more relaxed and content.  And that is a BIG thing!

Transforming,

Tony

The Mindset List for the Class of 2017

Each August since 1998, Beloit College has released the Beloit College Mindset List, providing a look at the cultural touchstones that shape the lives of students entering college this fall.

The Mindset List for the Class of 2017

For this generation of entering college students, born in 1995, Dean Martin, Mickey Mantle, and Jerry Garcia have always been dead.

1. Eminem and LL Cool J could show up at parents’ weekend.

2. They are the sharing generation, having shown tendencies to share everything, including possessions, no matter how personal.

3. GM means food that is Genetically Modified.

4. As they started to crawl, so did the news across the bottom of the television screen.

5. “Dude” has never had a negative tone.

6. As their parents held them as infants, they may have wondered whether it was the baby or Windows 95 that had them more excited.

7. As kids they may well have seen Chicken Run but probably never got chicken pox.

8. Having a chat has seldom involved talking.

9. Gaga has never been baby talk.

10. They could always get rid of their outdated toys on eBay.

11. They have known only two presidents.

12. Their TV screens keep getting smaller as their parents’ screens grow ever larger.

13. PayPal has replaced a pen pal as a best friend on line.

14. Rites of passage have more to do with having their own cell phone and Skype accounts than with getting a driver’s license and car.

15. The U.S. has always been trying to figure out which side to back in Middle East conflicts.

16. A tablet is no longer something you take in the morning.

17. Threatening to shut down the government during Federal budget negotiations has always been an anticipated tactic.

18. Growing up with the family dog, one of them has worn an electronic collar, while the other has toted an electronic lifeline.

19. Plasma has never been just a bodily fluid.

20. The Pentagon and Congress have always been shocked, absolutely shocked, by reports of sexual harassment and assault in the military.

21. Spray paint has never been legally sold in Chicago.

22. Captain Janeway has always taken the USS Voyager where no woman or man has ever gone before.

23. While they've grown up with a World Trade Organization, they have never known an Interstate Commerce Commission.

24. Courts have always been ordering computer network wiretaps.

25. Planes have never landed at Stapleton Airport in Denver.

26. Jurassic Park has always had rides and snack bars, not free-range triceratops and velociraptors.

27. Thanks to Megan's Law and Amber Alerts, parents have always had community support in keeping children safe.

28. With GPS, they have never needed directions to get someplace, just an address.

29. Java has never been just a cup of coffee.

30. Americans and Russians have always cooperated better in orbit than on earth.

31. Olympic fever has always erupted every two years.

32. Their parents have always bemoaned the passing of precocious little Calvin and sarcastic stuffy Hobbes.

33. In their first 18 years, they have watched the rise and fall of Tiger Woods and Alex Rodriquez.

34. Yahoo has always been looking over its shoulder for the rise of "Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle.”

35. Congress has always been burdened by the requirement that they comply with the anti-discrimination and safety laws they passed for everybody else to follow.

36. The U.S. has always imposed economic sanctions against Iran.

37. The Celestine Prophecy has always been bringing forth a new age of spiritual insights.

38. Smokers in California have always been searching for their special areas, which have been harder to find each year.

39. They aren’t surprised to learn that the position of Top Spook at the CIA is an equal opportunity post. 

40. They have never attended a concert in a smoke-filled arena.

41. As they slept safely in their cribs, the Oklahoma City bomber and the Unabomber were doing their deadly work.

42. There has never been a national maximum speed on U.S. highways.
43. Don Shula has always been a fine steak house.

44. Their favorite feature films have always been largely, if not totally, computer generated.

45. They have never really needed to go to their friend’s house so they could study together.

46. They have never seen the Bruins at Boston Garden, the Trailblazers at Memorial Coliseum, the Supersonics in Key Arena, or the Canucks at the Pacific Coliseum.

47. Dayton, Ohio, has always been critical to international peace accords.

48. Kevin Bacon has always maintained six degrees of separation in the cinematic universe.

49. They may have been introduced to video games with a new Sony PlayStation left in their cribs by their moms.

50. A Wiki has always been a cooperative web application rather than a shuttle bus in Hawaii.

51. The Canadian Football League Stallions have always sung Alouette in Montreal after bidding adieu to Baltimore.

52. They have always been able to plug into USB ports

53. Olestra has always had consumers worried about side effects.

54. Washington, D.C., tour buses have never been able to drive in front of the White House.

55. Being selected by Oprah’s Book Club has always read “success.”
56. There has never been a Barings Bank in England.

57. Their parents’ car CD player is soooooo ancient and embarrassing.

58. New York’s Times Square has always had a splash of the Magic Kingdom in it.

59. Bill Maher has always been politically incorrect.

60. They have always known that there are “five hundred, twenty five thousand, six hundred minutes" in a year.
