If you’re an NBA fan then last night was important to you. LeBron James ditched Cleveland for Miami. In hindsight, this choice was pretty obvious since there are many soundbites of him saying he wants to win and he won’t be acknowledged as a legend until he wins a championship so he’s going to do it by whatever means necessary even if that means joining up with 2 other superforces. Some call it cheating, some say it will tarnish his legend status because he won’t be able to say he led a team to championship. I say whatevs, I just want to see good games which I am guaranteed now.
Anyhoo, the whole announcement/press conference was followed by almost everyone on my Twitter timeline. Here are selected tweets that demonstrate why I love and hate certain people. You know who you are. In fairness, I included some of my own tweets (GemmySmallz).
CaressLepore: This just in Lebron has made a deal with Jay-Z to become a backup dancer for Beyonce
GemmySmallz: Breaking News: Lebron James is resurrecting Legends of the Hidden Temple on Nickelodeon as Olmec
maronziovance: If Lebron leaves Cleveland, the state of Ohio will go into foreclosure.
ambboogie: LeBron shouldn’t announce anything. He should put a paper bag of his doodoo on the table and walk away. Watch reporters fight for it.
GemmySmallz: Lebron’s blouse is like an optical illusion
ThroatChopU: Lebron should just sign a month-to-month deal, like people do w/apartments …
andrewbjones: #Lebronsannouncement “I will be starring in Kazaam 2 this fall”
GemmySmallz: Somewhere, Jay-Z just spit angrily

Slaus: I bet Cleveland sounds like that Autotune cry dude tonight
In other news, going to a bachelorette party tonight. I’m a bridesmaid in this wedding. I’ll save discussion about the dresses ordered from a Chinese sweatshop that were yellow on the website but pink-peach in person and didn’t fit oh and the maid of honor still doesn’t have her dress because they sent it back to China and other drama for another time, k? K.
Today, my IPOD-in-the-car playlist is Fuschia. The Fuschia playlist is rap/hip-hop, both intelligent and ignant, all crunk. Featured song from today is:
This video is hilarious and gives me all I need today. NOW GET UP AND DANCE!
Oh, and as a bonus video:
P.S. I met Ali la loca and her husband a few weeks ago for lunch. She is a lot more outgoing than I would have gathered from her blog, which is good because I tend to get nervous meeting new people. They even treated me to lunch! I’ve been reading her blog for years so I saw her transition from traveling to jewelry-making, and now the jewelry-making has just blown up. She makes gorgeous “Global Fusion” jewelry and her story is so inspirational for like-minded people to start their own thing. Love meeting bloggers!
