Falcor, Logos and Arrested for What?

Ugh sorry for the UBER delay between posts people.  I’ve been a busy bee!  Traveled to Long Island and back within a day, and managed to get myself sick. Is there anything worse than being sick?  Bleh.

Today, I was thinking about the Understanding Law class I took in high school.   I sorta kinda remember our teacher telling us about ridiculous laws that were put in place back in the 1800’s and never revised for current law!

Some of these crack me up.  I’ve just added “break every single one of these laws” to my bucket list.

I’ve noticed over the past few years that I have a keen eye for logos.  I can look at a logo and remember the product/company fairly easily.

I noticed some screaming similarities in these two:

Walgreens and The Washington Nationals Baseball team:

and most recently noticed, that the Cascade and Stumble Upon logo are very similar.

Really similar RIGHT?!

If you don’t get this reference because you’ve never seen this movie.  RUN to … well a computer and put it on your Netflix list.

But seriously WOW what a resemblence.  So excited for Posh and Becks to have a baby girl though!

Today’s music comes from Graffiti6.  I’m totally loving this band as of late.
