Stop the Insanity! #GlennBeck stole #SusanPowter’s look. Seriously.

Stop the insanity! I wish I could yell this loudly at the world sometimes. And in the 90’s Susan Powter was out there yelling it at us and for us. Stop the insanity! Now, instead of having Susan shout it at us, we have Glenn Beck. Yes, I’m calling out Glenn Beck on channeling his inner Susan. Everything from his hair, to his anger, to his penchant for chubbiness screams of knock-off Powter. Unfortunately, he still seems to be considered relevant to the world by a loyal audience (of which I’m not included) and she is relegated to a publicity Twitter feed.

I prefer a strong angry white woman with a shaved head telling me a fat over an angry white man with a shaved head telling me the worlds going to end.

I looked like this before Botox.

#TGIF: Step by Step, #SuzanneSomers doesn’t like dogs

Stephanie tells TJ to take the drawers out of a dresser. TJ puts them on the dresser. And says, “It’s a lot lighter this way.”

Carol doesn’t like dogs but the kids want one. Frank reminds them that it’s a good way to teach the kids responsibility.

I can only imagine the laugh out loud moments the writers felt around the writers table writing this episode. Just plain, Suzanne Somers fun.

Tush Tuesday: So I don’t have to ask for my dressing on the side?

I don’t know about you, but I for one cannot remember the last time I went to a salad party and emphatically discussed fat-free dressing with my besties. Oh, how I long for the early nineties, when being female meant wearing a topsy tail and shoulder pads while munching on a stand-up style salad (power salad). Pretty sure this is where the phrase “salad days” originated.

Music Monday: The Harlequin Romance of Rock and Roll

We’re all looking for the love of a life time, but few of us express it by growing so much hair, playing so many guitars, or walking around so bare-chested (must have been hot in the dark and foreboding house of lust and lightning). I jest, but all of that shirtless rock ballad power drumming seems to have worked. Maybe if I took more cues from Firehouse in my quest for love, I wouldn’t find myself on so many OkCupid dates with guys…who look like they’re from Firehouse.

TGIF: Whatever You Do, Don’t Dance Like Danny Tanner This Weekend

Rock a mullet, the guy could. Dance? Apparently not. Have a great weekend, and remember, whatever mistakes you may make this Friday and Saturday night (and Sunday, too? Sheesh!), don’t count Danny Tanner’s dance among them.

So what IS “qwerty” anyway?

For the purposes of this blog, qwerty refers to anyone who was a part of Generation X, Generation Y, or the Millennials, with a particular focus on those of us who grew up with the digital revolution but who were born before it happened.

We’re also a bunch of people who are nostalgic for John Hughes movies, boomboxes, and Pop Tarts.

Much of this blog attempts to explore things of interest to generation qwerty…how do we, the generation that followed the ambitious baby boomers, choose career paths, Kindles, and dinner menus? We, like all generations before us, are different than the groups that preceded us. We blog. We believe in global warming and gay marriage. We have jobs in consulting. And, most of us are either lactose or gluten intolerant.

We’ve been told we’re special. But…are we? What, save for Mark Zuckerberg (sheesh, can we stop talking about THAT guy), have we done that’s so amazing?

The guy in the video below is a cross between Bill Nye, Alton Brown, and Ryan Seacrest. He’s also super passionate about keyboards and explains where the term qwerty actually came from.

Around the :33 mark he states that if qwerty were an actual word, it should mean “outdated and purposefully designed with the intention for inefficiency.”

That statement, in a nutshell, sums up how I feel about generation qwerty. We’re a distracted bunch of multitaskers whose cachet doesn’t amount to much beyond our brand loyalty, trend spotting, and likes on Facebook. After years of evolution, the biggest asset our generation brings to the table is our ability click on a thumbs up sign.

But I’ve always been a Negative Nancy, so I could be wrong.

P.S. Is it just me or is that Bill Nye/Alton Brown/Ryan Seacrest fella kind of attractive? Single flirty qwerty over here may have a new nerdy crush.
