I was talking with one of my friends recently and we got to the topic of making moves. She was wondering who should make the first move? I say the guys. Call me old-fashioned, but it just seems like “the norm” still for the guys to make the first move. Yes, it’s socially acceptable for a woman to make the first move these days, but I’m positive that in the back of people’s minds, they find it slightly odd. In fact, all the guys I talk to think it’s cool when a woman goes up to them and asks them out. The way they see it, they already know that the girl likes him, and that he didn’t have to do any work.

I think my friend was saying that she could make the first move, although she’d be afraid of getting the boot. I suppose that’s how guys feel about this sort of thing too right? Sometimes, when two people are flirting, they’re still not sure if the other person is interested in them. I mean, some people flirt to flirt, not necessarily because they’re interested. I guess that makes things more difficult to figure out.

All in all, the opinions that I’ve gotten about this topic are all over the place.

So one of my friends recently got into a small bumper-denter. He was stopped somewhere, and this big ‘ol FedEx truck was possibly going to hit him, so he decided to back up his car to avoid that. Turns out that in backing up, he bumped this SUV. As a result, his bumper got dented and the SUV’s bumper has some paint on it. Since the FedEx truck didn’t do anything, he’s not at fault. The fault lies on my friend.

When I was talking to him about it, I kept thinking, would it have been better if he just LET the FedEx truck hit him? I mean, he had a previous small accident where his hood was damaged. I figure that if the FedEx hit his car on the front, then it would be reasonable to get the hood fixed too. Heh, not that I’m some scheming person or anything, but when it comes to car repairs, the bills get really high, so you NEVER want to be at fault. I mean, yeah, it’s nice to not get into accidents because you could be hurt and such. The thing is, if you know that nobody would be hurt because the speeds at which your driving are moderately slow, then what’s wrong with letting someone else hit you if the other choice would be for you to hit someone? Then your insurance would not be messed up. Hmm.. just a thought, tis all. I’m not trying to suggest that we should all stop our cars in the middle of the road for people to hit, but to keep in mind that given the situation, you might want someone to hit you. Call me crazy, I guess.

Eeww, have you ever accidentally used someone else’s toothbrush? I mean, you have toothpaste on it, and you rinse it off, but still… I don’t think I could ever use someone else’s toothbrush. Well, MAYBE if I was on a long vacation to some place and I couldn’t buy one for the duration of the trip. But it would depend on who it was too I think. Hmm.. maybe it’s all the same if I really need to brush my teeth.

Well, then the next question is, what if someone asked you to borrow YOUR toothbrush? Would you be okay with them using your toothbrush? So if you’re okay with them using your toothbrush, would you use it afterwards? I would think that women wouldn’t have as much of a problem lending their toothbrush to either a man or another woman. On the flipside, I think that guys would have a problem loaning their toothbrush to another guy, but not necessarily to a woman. Why is that? Perhaps I’m placing a standard on guys.

How about sharing a straw, or perhaps a drink? If you’re already swapping spit, then what’s the difference? Heh, this was just a topic that M and I were talking about.

Future topic of discussion: Who is supposed to make the first move?

I saw the funniest thing yesterday.. well, it was funny to me. While I was driving around, I looked in the rearview mirror and saw this guy furiously picking his nose. I say “furiously” because I swear he was digging for gold or something. Hahahha. I can be so immature sometimes.

Here’s today’s Relaxing Ritual:

Nap
“When all else fails, there’s nothing like a nap. Pull down the blinds and curl up with your favorite blanket or just lie down under your desk for five minutes. Whenever possible, make some fresh-squeezed juice upon waking.”

You know what I find annoying? Well, I recently received my credit card statement for my Blue Card. So being the responsible credit card payer that I am, I decided to write up my check now before I’m too lazy to do it. At any rate, I tear off the portion that I’m supposed to include in the envelope and look for the amount which I’m supposed to pay. The thing is, the only amount they print is the minimum. Now, I’m not looking to pay the minimum.. I’m looking to pay off the entire amount. What’s up with these people? PLUS, on the rest of the statement, the only thing that stands out is the minimum amount due (highlighted in black with white print). Are they filling up the page with so many other numbers that it will make it less convenient for you to pay off the entire amount?

I mean, are they somehow trying to arrange it so that you will end up paying finance charges? Evil credit card company. The thing is, on my Master Cards, they don’t do that. They print the total amount due on the little slip of paper that you’re supposed to send in.

Man.. I must be losing my touch or something. I suppose not really playing volleyball in a while kinda makes you a little rusty. So what we did at practice today was kinda fun. We let the girls serve at us 6 times each… today 10 of them showed up. For each ball that we mess up, we would subtract from their running. So after the end of 60 serves, we messed up 4. Darn… I was hoping to make it 0. Heh heh. guess we make mistakes too. But at least we challenged them. In their heads, they were probably thinking that 2 people can’t cover the whole court when they seem to have trouble with 6 people. Heh heh.

Okay, since I decided that I needed to be somewhat productive during my… break from actual work… I started an internship. My first day was today. Basic stuff for a first day. I sat around while other people talked in my direction. They went over the product and all the nitty-gritty. Tomorrow is the same thing. I wonder when I will actually be doing work because as weird as it may sound, I’m actually looking forward to it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve really enjoyed these past 2 months a whole lot. But still, a part of me wants to be doing something remotely interesting.

Oh, before I forget, here’s another Relaxing Ritual:

Guided Imagery
“Write down or tape-record your own guided imagery trip, or find one at a new age or meditation ship. Guided imagery is a journey you take with your mind, without ever leaving your house. Find a comfortable spot and close your eyes. The details of images, smells, and feelings are described to you, until you can fully imagine you are somewhere else. You could be walking along the beach, smelling the salt air, and feeling the wind on your face. It’s minivacation, without the expense or complicated travel plans.”

Yet another lovely day. I had lunch outside today, sitting on the grass while catching some rays.

Oh yeah, I put that stuff on my car’s windows to repell the rain and after taking the hose to the windows, I must say that there is a noticeable difference. The water was beading immediately and running down the windows. I wonder how it’ll do when I’m actually driving the car. I guess I’ll have to wait till it rains or something.

Wow, another nice weather day. Not a single cloud in the sky. It’s days like this that remind me why I love living here.

So I bought this rain repelling thing yesterday at Kragen. It is supposed to keep rain and snow from staying on your windshield. Basically it’s supposed to be so good that I wouldn’t really need to use wipers since the rain is supposed to just slip right off. We’ll see about that. “..coats exterior glass with a super-slick surface that repels wet weather, makes driving safer! Use year ’round to improve visibility. Makes windows easier to clean, too!”

Oh yeah, here’s yet another relaxing ritual:

Primal Scream
“Let it all out!! Scream into a pillow, beat your couch with a broom, stomp around. Yell at the top of your lungs in the middle of nowhere or, better still, somewhere soundproof. Make a big sound with your voice or do something else that allows you to feel you aren’t holding your feelings back. Don’t forget that big sounds can scare others if they don’t know what’s going on - try to choreograph your primal moments so as not to alarm your neighbors, housemates, or pets.”

Heh heh, I am being a little silly girl. Wanna know how? Well, you know how you get tons of junkmail a lot for credit card offers and stuff? Well, they often come with the paid-for postage already, right? Well, I took their little flyer, tore it up, put in the envelope, and i’m going to mail it back to them. Just make sure your name isn’t on any of the material. I suggest you all do the same. Who knows, they may eventually stop send US junkmail offers.
