I return. With a little help…

My one and only subscriber has encouraged me to return to this blog and say my say when such a say needs to be said.

Here is his contribution to break the ice. (Thanks Ant!)

Have you ever done these, thought these? I’ve thought most of them but didn’t think a little further, and that is to write them down so we can all enjoy our common humanity. This person (thank you, whoever you are!) did.

1 Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font. (actually there kind of is.http://sartalics.com/ The great thing is that because it is CSS based you can use it on any font. Including Comic Sans.)

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind-of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection… again.

13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Mirrabooka” routing option.

17. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

18. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

19. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

20. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

21. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

    • Hey Karinski – I know, it’s been actually nagging at me all day today so I’m not in the least surprised that I should get a little klap upside da haiyid. Thanks for the encouragement.

      Yesterday I saw you and Richard and the excellent Oyster making your way into a side-road off Main Road and going towards the mountain. Hope you had a good one! I was intent on a fish and salad at Kalkies so didn’t insist on joining you. You all looked so lovely… happy and peaceful.
