And I’m all like, “I have a great idea!”

10 Jan

I get real excited about things. Like, reeeeal excited. And He is always bringing me down.

I’m like: Yo! I just thought of a great invention! A laptop that is ALSO A PRINTER!

and then He says:

Shannon, people don’t need that, and it would be really heavy.

To be fair, I totally invented that about four years ago, before tablets were “all the rage.” So it would have definitely made sense and have been very practical, if not super practical.

Last night I was on the streetcar home and came up with the BEST idea. I will start a podcast! It will be great! And as usual, he was such a downer.

“But Shannon – what will it be about?”

“Well, dear husband (oh yeah, we got married), it will be about EVERYTHING, like cats vs. dogs, ghosts, the best sandwich I ever made, aliens, Keanu Reeves, and all kinds of great stuff. That’s what people want to hear. That’s what they need to hear.” (I even said it in an Italics kind of voice, so he would know that I totally meant business.

Anyway, the point of this post, is that as soon as I figure out how, I’m totally starting a podcast! And it won’t just be for four pods (is that what you call them?) either, it will be forever, and I will be rich and famous because of it, and I’ll never have to wear proper work clothes again. Hashtag – living the dream.


Thought of the Day: Ghost Questions

20 Mar

I really liked writing about shark facts. The point is, sharks are just impressively awesome, and they deserve to have a blog post, if not several, written about them.

But sharks got me thinking about something I’ve been thinking about for awhile.


Sharks are to cool as ghosts are to interesting. Which is why I’ve decided to share with you my top ghost questions:

  1. If a person is pregnant when they die, and they turn into a ghost (obvi), do they give birth to a baby ghost?
  2. Can ghosts get married?
  3. Can ghosts get divorced?
  4. Is there a separate ghost world, where ghosts go through mid-life (for lack of a better term) crisises’s?
  5. Can you choose to become a ghost?
  6. At what point do ghosts move on? What if your “unfinished business” is something like “My soul won’t rest until every person in the world is full” – are you honestly just hanging around?
  7. What do ghosts do when they’re not haunting people?
  8. How long does time feel like to ghosts?
  9. If ghosts can fly, or kind of hover, can they go to space?
  10. If the answer to #9 is yes, is that what aliens are? Just ghosts who have hovered really high?

And now, some ghost pictures:
