Hey, hey! It’s Facebook Friday!
Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.
For once, I don’t have a bookish meme to share but I thought this was still quite hilarious. If you don’t get it right away, that’s okay, we can laugh about it later while I explain it:
Next we have the video. You all should know by now how much I have this obsession/fantasy love affair with Idris Elba in my mind. Today, his movie The Dark Tower came out today. I must confess that I’ve never read this book before and honestly, if Idris Elba wasn’t in it, I may or may not have contemplated seeing it. Anyway, I shared this video to my page of Idris Elba on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. It’s pretty funny! They play this game where they send an English song through Google Translate and then translate it back to English and sing those lyrics. Check it out (plus bask in Elba’s voice..):
Last but not least, I shared two photos on Facebook this week. The first one was my book sale haul. On Wednesday, I dragged my friend to this library sale because we went last year and it was spectacular! We were in for such a surprise. Turns out it was bag day! Bag day means you buy a bag and fill it with as many books as possible and pay a flat fee. At this sale, the bags were $1! I was in heaven, truly. Then the lady blew my mind when she told me it was buy one bag get one free. I walked into this sale with $30 and walked out with 2 bags of books and $29:
The second picture I shared was an old one. For those that don’t have Facebook, it has this application called Facebook Memories that shares photos with you that you took years ago and allows you to share them with your friends again if you’d like. My Facebook memory was a big sunflower picture that I took 7 years ago. I shared it with my friends and family because 7 years ago I was in college and the picture was taken with my cellphone. I was at one of my work study jobs at my college’s Field Station. A group of us planted these sunflowers and a vegetable garden and I remember being so excited watching them grow. This sunflower was taller than me and i’m 5’7″! Back then I had a small, 4 inch LG phone that had a sliding qwerty keyboard. I remember fighting the smartphone wave for so long! I thought smartphones were dumb and too expensive. I thought my phone was the best phone with my free calls on nights and weekends after 9 pm. Man have the times change.
That’s it for today. Did you see anything cool in your social media this week? Let me know in the comments below!
