I’ve heard that with each new experience, you change. So, did I do anything new today? I think I’m going to try and note something new each day, that is if I do anything new. Nowadays with being unemployed, it’s hard to do new things.

1) Went to The Boardwalk in Los Altos and had a Boardwalk Deluxe.

Quote of the day: “Imagine the color you get if you put a parrot in a blender.”

When it comes to any task, is it about power or finesse? For instance, in a game of pool, is it about hitting the ball as hard as possible or perhaps maybe a delicate touch would do the trick? I’ve played against people who seem to power every single shot when a light tap would do the trick.

I am definitely a finesse kinda gal. Now, whether or not I actually have finesse is a whole different issue, but powering through something has never been an option. Okay, but if I actually had a choice in the matter, I’d still choose finesse.

I wonder if this could be applied to the dating world. Let me take a crack at it. Okay, so when it comes to winning the affections of your special someone, would you rather be in their face and constantly bombard them with attention (power), or would you rather be a bit more subtle and graceful (finesse)?

Some people would argue that persistency pays off in the end, so perhaps they would choose the power method. Others, who enjoy a good game of cat & mouse would prefer the challenging chase via the finesse method. If I had to choose, again, I’d side with the finesse way. In fact, I sort of would rather be chased that way, but alas, guys tend to often choose the former.

YESSSSSS! It’s great to not be picked. Have a lovely day you all. I’ll think of something interesting to write about shortly.

Hmm.. what did I do that was new today?

1) Peeled off my registration sticker in one successful swoop. Although, I foolishly thought bringing a utility knife to it first would do the trick. Imagine how easy it can be to steal these things…
2) Watched the movie “Shaft”. Who’s the man that delivers ten out of ten times?

I think it’ll be somewhat of a neat idea to note when I do something new, so here goes… I did 3 new things this weekend:

1) Hauled myself to the Gilroy Garlic Festival, where I ate garlic ice cream. (so maybe that counts as 2 instead of just one)
2) Ate Dippin Dots.
3) Drank Vanilla Coke. It makes me think of an ice cream float for some reason.

Heh, check me out, I’m so cool now.

First off, thanks for the marshmallows and fire yesterday Am!

Let’s see, here’s a question for you. I was watching an old episode of Friends and it was the one where Ross proposes to Emily. Since it was somewhat of a spur-of-the-moment proposal, he didn’t have a ring:
So, would you ever propose to your SO without a ring? Also, if you were on the other side of the fence, would you accept a proposal without a ring?

Okay, yeah yeah, so first of all, I’m going to assume that the engagement ring is some special symbol of love, okay? I’m just assuming because people do the things they do, but for this topic of discussion, a ring is “standard” in proposals.

I think all of my life, I’ve seen proposals done in a fairly similar fashion (in the movies that is): guy gets down on one knee, busts out the ring, takes the girl’s left hand, and asks her, “[insert name here], Will you marry me?” Now, sometimes the guy would do something romantic to build up to the proposal, but ultimately, that’s how it always happened.

So after years and years of watching this, it’s always been in my mind that someday, I would be that girl, and some guy would get down on one knee, bust out a ring, take my hand, and utter those 4 words. I would say that a proposal isn’t any less “authentic” without the ring. I mean, a ring is a ring. It’s one way to label a brand a gal though. Heh.

My final word among all of this rambling is, yeah sure, a proposal would still mean a great deal, but somehow, because I’m so nutzo in the head, it wouldn’t quite “complete” my vision without a ring.

Who says you can’t buy anything for a nickel anymore? I stopped by the post office on my way home today and surprisingly, at around 4 in the afternoon, there was no long line of unhappy, pissed off customers. In fact, there was no line at all. SWEET! I suppose everyone is waiting for tomorrow to send out their packages.

I walk up to the counter and the conversation went something like this:
Me: Hi, I’d like to buy a 3 cent stamp, please.
Post Office Worker (POW): Hmm? 3 cent stamp? How many?
Me: Just one.
POW: One? Okay. Will that be all for you?
Me: Yes. [I put my nickel on the counter]

I think she found it strange that all I was buying was a 3 cent stamp. Well, gee, I had this self addressed stamped envelope which was given to me back in the 34-cent-first-class-stamp-days.

I was reading some news wire stories and came across this one: Man dies in vat of chocolate. I imagine that he drowned, as opposed to being cooked. Gruesome, isn’t it?

Scarf Girl, still gathering ideas.
