The Mondays: 10 Random Thoughts For the Week of August 24, 2009
I spent this last weekend in Los Angeles. My close friends were having a baby shower which suddenly got canceled as they up and had the baby. My other friend had a birthday party happy hour thing. It was a bit of a whirlwind weekend, but as always, my mind wandered and it got me thinking...
1. I really wish that Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" option.
2. I really don't understand the statement "I don't need to drink to have fun." Sure, no one does but why would you start a fire with flint and some sticks when you can use a lighter?
3. You know in Los Angeles the only difference between eccentric and just straight-up crazy is one million dollars.
4. Bad decisions make for the best stories.
5. You can agree with me or you can be wrong.
6. As I get older and find myself in mixed company at a dinner party or happy hour at a bar, when someone is telling me a story al I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that is not only better, but also more directly involves me.
7. I can't remember that last time I wasn't at least a little bit tired.
8. When did Facebook become better friends with absolutely everyone I have ever met in my entire life? I have had great friends who have gotten engaged, pregnant, had twins, bought a new house... who told me? Facebook. This nosy priss is really starting to get on my nerves.
9. Was learning cursive really necessary?
10. I used to think that "anal leakage" was the worst possible side effect I had heard thrown into the mix of those super cheesy drug commercials we see on TV... but then recently there was a new one that took the cake: "May cause thoughts of suicide and / or suicide." Um, that doesn't seem like a side effect... that seems like a pretty serious EFFECT!
Well, now it's back to the daily grind. I have a Monday to make it through and four other lovely little days that follow in rank and file. I will check back next week with more random thoughts. I never know what the week will bring me and, frankly, neither do you.
And remember, it's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Then it's just a game -- Find the Eye!
