Steve Jobs: Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. RIP

Steve Jobs 

1955-2011

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960’s, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.

Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.”

Steve Jobs has changed so much for us in such a short amount of time. Even as I type now, I’m using one of his products. He was an amazing man, visionary, and dreamer. Find your passion, and live it without fear. Steve Jobs would want that. Thank you Mr. Jobs for changing the world I live in.

The following video contains a quote that means so much, for so many reasons. RIP to those who’ve gone too soon.

The Evil Panty Meme Rides Again

Um, so, this one time on Twitter…I may have thought it was a REALLY good idea to harass one of my friends into creating an evil panty meme. Hey, it felt like the right thing for a Tuesday morning. Being that all of my friends on Twitter are AWESOME, she obliged. (I’m talking about @MichelleSimkins, so totally twitter stalk follow her.)

And then…oh, yes, she tagged yours truly. And that was a SHAMEFUL two almost three months ago, and holy guac am I red in the face.

It’s only fair that I (FINALLY) post the underoo wonderoo, er, evil panty meme! Be sure to stop by Michelle’s blog ‘green woman’ for more of her super fab posts.

So here it is, the already infamous panty meme. The rules are, of course, copy the questions, answer them, and tag others to do the same.

What do you call your panties/underwear/undergarments? Do you have any commonly used nicknames for them?

I refer to my undergarments as undies. Yes, I am in my twenties and I’m not actually five. No, I am not ashamed. UNDIES FTW!

Have you ever had that supposedly common dream of being in a crowded place in only your underwear?

I wish, er, wait that came out wrong. I’m usually in “le buff” wondering what the hell I drank, and where, OH WHERE are my shoes?!

What is the worst thing you can think of to make panties out of?

Spiders. Big. Dead. Spiders. Gargantuan tarantulas. MILLIONS OF THEM. Go on and scream with me.

If you were a pair of panties, what color would you be, and WHY?

Can I say invisible? Not like, peek-a-boo butt cheek kind-of-invisible, but OMG her legs are detached, how is that torso walking, and why-is-she-terrorizing-the-neighbors invisible. What do you mean invisible’s not a color?!

Have you ever thrown your panties/underwear at a rock star or other celebrity? If so, which one(s)? If not, which one(s) WOULD you throw your panties/underwear at, given the opportunity?

NEVER! maybe james franco NO ONE! maybe james franco VICTORIA NEEDS TO KEEP HER SECRETS!!!!! maybe james franco

You’re out of clean panties. What do you do?

Whip out a sewing box, grab scissors, find a sacrificial shirt and get to work. These are all lies, naturally. I don’t sew.

Are you old enough to remember Underoos? If so, did you have any? Which ones?

Sadly, no, no, and no. But I did google them, and I’m going to have a talk with my mother. I COULD HAVE BEEN WONDER WOMAN!!

If you could have any message printed on your panties, what would it be?

I’m not sure, but I’ll tell you one thing: if a guy I’m dating EVER has a message on his undies boxers that says “welcome to the jungle” I’ll probably be terrified. For MULTIPLE reasons.

How many bloggers does it take to put panties on a goat?

Three. One to grab the back legs. One to man the panties. And one to document the phuckery for Youtube while peeing her panties. 

If you’re still reading my answers, consider yourself tagged! And then let me know on twitter, or here when you post your answers. Keep the evil panty meme alive!

Oh, and just because I’m not “officially” tagging anyone doesn’t mean your time isn’t coming…

The evil panty meme is like a ninja lurking in the night. You have been warned.
