The Five Funniest Pages to Follow on Twitter [List]

I will admit.  I was late . . . way late . . . to the Twitter train.  But I am now obsessed.  In fact, the first thing I do every single morning is comb through Twitter to catch up on news, gossip, sports and pop culture.  Yes, I suppose it's safe to say that my morning ritual is a blend of three "S's" and a "T."   LOL!  And I want to share with you five hysterical pages I think every Twitter user should follow.  And here they are . . . in no particular order.

Kentucky Department Of Revenue Puts Temporary Hold On Returns

I think one of the best parts of being a grown up in this day and age is the ability to e-file my tax returns. The process of checking boxes online and answering questions can be a little time-consuming, but when it's done, it's done. I just sit back and I wait on my refund. It turns out we'll all have to wait on our state returns and refunds for a little bit.

The Rockin Matthies: Facebook’s Dynamic Dancing Duo [Video]

I will warn you right now.  If you are reading this to get an explanation, I don't have one.  All I know is this.  Over the weekend, Kevin and I were at dinner with our friend Leisa, who has what is likely the most bizarre collection of Facebook friends in the universe.  And, well, she's added to that collection.  She pulled out her cell phone and started showing videos of The Rockin Matthies.  Have you all seen these people?  They pretty much just dance around their kitchen, sing-along and grunt to some of your favorite country, pop and rock songs.  There's absolutely no way I can do it justice with words.  So, here you go.  I loaded up a video for you so you can watch one!

I worked really hard and I was first chair most of the time both years in middle school. I didn't meet Mr. Flener until I arrived at band camp prior to my freshman year in high school. Thus began an even bigger journey I would never forget and I'm so glad he was a part of it.
