The Daily Tay's Best Week Ever

Friday, December 6, 2013

Good job friends, we've made it to another Friday. We've only got this weekend and then one more until it's the weekend before Christmas Eve, so make it a good one. I haven't got much time to diddle today so let's jump right into it, it's time for another edition of The Daily Tay's Best Week Ever.

Alright holiday shoppers, we'll take your overnight shipping and raise you one Amazon Drone, said the scientific geniuses at Amazon. Did you hear about this? Amazon is hoping to release their "octocopters" within the next five years that will enable them to send your packages directly to your home within hours, minutes probably, hell your lightly used novel you're not sure if you really want to read will probably be at your door step before you even click submit!

So I think it's pretty obvious miniature pilots must be having a pretty stellar week thanks to this announcement. They've been out of work since the 80s.

And then we've got Sunny the White House dog causing a ruckus, as usual. Do you know Sunny? No. Nobody does. And now we know why, because she's the black sheep of the White House. Sunny must have been given a bath immediately before a holiday party hosted for military families at the White House because she was running zoomies all around the dining room knocking over children left and right.

Thanks to Sunny's bad behavior, for the 83rd week in a row Bo Obama continues to have the best week ever.

And then we've got the fiasco from last night known as NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music. Oh guys, I don't even know where to start with this one. I love Carrie Underwood, I do, but bless her heart the poor thing couldn't act to save her life. I literally think if someone was about to drown her and told her to start acting if she wanted to live her eyes would go blank and her face would be numb, as it was for most of the evening last night.

Bless her sweet sweet heart though. I truly think the entire thing would have been a lot better if Carrie just would have sang I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped up 4 wheel drive, carved my name into his leather seats... I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all 4 tires... Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.  Over and over and over instead of speaking at all. I hope I'm not being too hard on Care Care, because we all know she has more talent in one braid than most of us have in our entire body, but that's why she should stick to singing and tire slashing. #carriefan4life. Sadly I think it's Julie Andrews who comes out on top on this one. I'm sure she was snorting giggles and hidden oh no's under her breath from up above throughout the entire performance.

If you watched, what were your thoughts?

And did you hear the Kardashians released their infamous Christmas card photo this year? I don't know what the big deal is, it looks a little outdated to me. I mean jeans and white shirts, really? Hasn't this been done by every single American family ever?

And to conclude I have to say that in all honesty, I don't think anyone is really having the best week ever because we unfortunately lost a great person this week.  And no, I'm not talking about Paul Walker, even though from what I've gathered he was truly an amazing father, brother, friend and just a great person in general. But I'm actually referring to Nelson Mandela, a man who literally changed this world for the better in more ways than one.

Enjoy your weekend, life is too short not to.

  1. I've missed this feature! Good call on all points. And from losing both Nelson Mandela and Paul Walker this week, I've learned that both a long life (95 years) and a shortened one (40), it is more than possible to live to the very fullest. It's truly not how much time you're given, but what manage to do in that time!

  2. I haven't watched The Sound of Music yet, but from the sounds of it, it might be 3 hours of my life that I can never get back...

  3. Wait Carrie was supposed to be good? I kind of thought of the whole thing as a high school spring musical or community theater. I love Carrie too, but she is no Julie Andrews. I think she would agree.
    Also, I am so sad about Mandela, what an incredible man.

  4. What I really love about that picture is that everyone is standing and posing on "their side"...totally shows how self absorbed that family "everyone squeeze in and look at the camera"..ready model pose and go! so sad!
    Totally still laughing (I shouldn't be) by that poor little child knocked looks seriously ready to get up and go after that dog. Happy Friday!

  5. I posted that same Mandela quote today, such a loss for our world. Yeah...I can't find the right words to say about the Sound of Music because I truly do love Carrie...but wasn't great.

  6. So I'm going to comment because I feel like I just have to get it out there among all the critiques on this whole sound of music thing.

    i actually enjoyed it. yes. Carrie Underwood is definitely no actor, however she sang great. she (and the others) had only ONE chance to get it right and I think they did well. Her acting really was stiff... terrible actually but since I know she isn't an actress and is actually a singer I looked past it.

    I'm also kind of pissed off people keep comparing her to Julie Andrews. No one can ever be Julie Andrews however NBC must have done poorly notifying the public that this was a remake of the PLAY and NOT THE MOVIE!

    End rant :)

    Happy Friday!!!

  7. One zillion mentions of Paul Walker on my FB feed this week, about eight of Nelson Mandela, a man who was an inspiration to many and the true definition of living your purpose. Rest, Mr. Mandela. You've earned it!

    I wish singers would sing and stay out of acting unless their names are Justin Timberlake or Marshall Mathers.

  8. I didn't watch... but I heard poor Carrie did not do a very good job. Bless her.

  9. I missed out on The Sound of Music but I haven't heard good things. Poor Carrie, I adore her to pieces! And I appreciate the Nelson Mandela mention! My heart was definitely broken at the Paul Walker news, but I definitely think the loss of Nelson Mandela should be considered a larger impact after everything that he did in his life!!

  10. I stared & laughed at that Sunny debacle photo for a good 5 minutes yesterday. The look on each face is priceless.

  11. I watched the show... poor girl haha. Laura Benanti, Audra McDonald, and Christian Borle stole the show.... as they could actually act. I give Carrie props for the fact that she did it and it could have been way worse considering she didn't have experience. But yeah... it was interesting. Laura and Audra saved the show.

  12. I agree with you 100% on Carrie Underwood last night. It just wasn't the same without Julie Andrew's sweet, accented voice. But I love Carrie Underwood so I just had to turn it off after like 5 minutes for fear of changing my mind about her.

  13. I thought that Kardashian card was from years ago... Huffington released this one - Now I sound super pathetic that I even knew that....

  14. I'm not really an old school musical fan but the five minutes I watched were unbearable. I'll stick to Glee and High School Musical.

    And as for everything else, spot on sister.

  15. I can't believe they even attempted to do The Sound of Music again. I couldn't bear to watch.

  16. That picture of Michelle and the Kardash that is hysterical!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  17. oh boy, if you haven't seen the Kardashian Christmas card for this year, you're in for a surprise.

  18. I think your first commenter Caroline said it best about losing both Paul Walker and Nelson Mandela :)
    I Love Carrie Underwood as you do..she was my first concert and the girl can sing that's for certain. But I think the Von Trapp kids (the ones that are still alive) I read it online I'll post the link if I Can find it. Anyway they basically said they didn't feel she was right for the role and I have to agree. She acknowledged that she knew her place and didn't want to replace Julie Andrews, but yet anyone that tries to take on such a role should think before attempting such a high pedestal! Here's the link not spam I promise :)

  19. I watched like 15 mins of it and had to turn it I thought it was AWFUL!!! In fact I don't think I watched that much, I am a Carrie Underwood fan juuuust not that.
