Commuter Clipper

So I guess one of my pet peeves is clipping nails in public places. Recently on the train, I heard the familiar *click click* of of a nail clipper and turned my head to see who the guilty party was. It turned out to be a elderly woman. I saw that she had a newspaper of sorts on her lap so I didn’t think it was as bad. I figured that most of the clippings will fall onto the newspaper.

Later on, I was looking around the train and I noticed that the same woman was READING her paper!! So if she’s reading the paper, then were are all the nail clippings? Yuck.

Dab & Sniff

I was taking the train home today and I realized that it is TOTALLY worth it to spend 5-10 minutes waiting for the next train since I would probably get a seat RATHER than having to jog a bit and catch a crowded one. So some homeless guy walks onto the train and he kinda smelled bad. This other guy who was standing around reached into his bag, grabbed out a small vial of cologne, dabbed it on his finger, and proceeded to smell it. He did this again even after he moved out of smelling range. Perhaps he just likes the smell. Hahaha, I thought that was so funny, but also kinda clever.

I’m all safe and sound at home, although the windy conditions didn’t make the flight completely smooth on both of my flights. Heheh. I had a total blast over the weekend. I think I’m going to have to rest my body for a bit and just basically veg. Too many hours of volleyball playing can make a person tired. Then again, staying up late partying doesn’t help much either.

Telling Your Ex

Something I’ve always wondered was how much “courtesy” you may or may not “owe” to your ex. What I mean is that once you break up you are once again your own person and you don’t have to “answer” to anybody right?

So what happens when you both move on and start seeing someone new? Are you obligated at all to tell your ex? Afterall, you guys have broken up so why would you really “care?”

I’m sure this is a pretty touchy issue, because some people wouldn’t care to know and might actually be offended if you do tell them, since it seems like you’re bragging. Others though, would be hurt if you didn’t mention anything and they heard it through the grapevine. I’ll put some more thought into this.

Back on the Market

I was chatting with one of my friends recently and she was telling me some stuff about her and her previous exs. One of my impressions was that she may not have been 100% over things. I suppose that’s where the baggage comes into place. The question then is, are we ever really over relationships? How do we know if we are ready to move on?

I had thought about this in past and came up with one solution. You ask yourself the question, “Would I get back together with him/her today if I had the chance?” I think if you can say a definite no, then you’re over the relationship. However, if you are somewhat on the fence about it, then perhaps you’re not yet ready for the dating scene. Then again, some people use new relationships to help them answer no to the question. I would consider those folks in transition.

Okies.. gotta pack. Yeah, I know I still have tomorrow, but I like to get things done early.

Two things: *yawn* and *ouch*

I’m sleepy which means I should get to bed soon. I’m sore because I played a lot of volleyball and most of my volleyball muscles have not been conditioned. Hopefully this will prepare me for this weekend. Golly, it’s like I’m discovering muscles that I never knew existed.

I got this message in a fortune cookie today: “If you think you can, you can.” How very Little Engine of them to write such a fortune.

I don’t know what it is about playing volleyball and living in the Bay Area that seems to bring folks together into one big happy family. While hanging out in between games today, I was chatting with some folks I met only today, and one of them was saying how everyone is seperated by 3 degrees at most. I suspect that if you’re Asian, then it will only be 2 degrees!

*yawn* Time to catch some zzz’s so I can have a nice and productive week. Then it’s Vegas, Baby, Vegas!

So one of my friends recently had a debate with some of his friends about poop. Yeah, poop. Can you believe that people can disagree about poop?

Now, I don’t know much of what is actually in our poop, but one of them said something about healthy poop floating because it has fiber and healthy stuff in it, which is lighter, and thus floats. Whereas the bad stuff in your poop weighs more and simply sinks to the bottom of the bowl.

So that brings me to the question: What is the difference between healthy poop and non-healthy poop? Any science/doctor types out there who know the answer to this question?

Cute Friends

One of my friends recently raised the question: Do good looking people have good looking friends? If so, why is that?

Well, for one thing, people who have similar personalities can easily become friends. If you have similar outlooks on life, then it’s easy to get along. Following this train of thought, people who are good looking have lived their life one way, while less good looking people have lived their life another way. I suppose that’s why they tend to be friends, since they have had similar past experiences, which as a result has resulted in them having similar personalities. Am I making any sense?

It’s pretty easy to see how good looking people get treated much nicer out there in the world. I’m not exactly sure why that is, but I suppose it has something to do with people of the opposite sex (or maybe the same sex) wanting to get on their good sides and perhaps hook up. Whereas if you’re not as good looking and not as many people help you, you learn to help yourself.

Thus, you get two types of people: one who thinks it’s normal that everybody helps each other, and another who thinks people should help themselves. These two types of people are less likely to get along with each other as they would with another of their own “kind.”

So I guess that’s what my theory is about why good looking people are friends with other good looking people. It also follows that less good looking people hang out with people of similar “good looking-ness.”

Hmm.. so in a nutshell: Birds of a feather flock together.
