Recently, I’ve been trying to figure out what I really want out of a job, or what job I really want, for that matter. I mean, I have a stable job with decent job security as far as I know. The only reason why I’d be gone from my current company is if I left.

The pay is decent, but sometimes I feel like I’m doing more work than my job should be doing. In a way, I’m doing more advanced work for just a peon, which keeps me entertained an learning, but at the same time, I’m not being compensated for it. Should it matter really? Am I just being greedy and whiny about it?

Then there’s the question of, if I won the Super Lotto jackpot tomorrow, would I call in the next day and say that I quit? Most people would say yes, but I think I’d still come in and work while I try to figure out what I want to do with my life. Then I suppose, the pay that they give me with respect to my daily duties wouldn’t matter so much.

I was having a conversation with one of my friends recently and it dawned on me that wedding photographers can be like dogs. Yeah, you’re wondering how that works out huh?

Well, this is my theory on it: Wedding photographers are the hired guns for a capturing the bride and groom’s special day. They are expected to take the best photos of everybody that attends the wedding.

Enter the amateur photographer who’s got all the gear and skills to take beautiful photos. The pro guy spots this fancy gear and instantly sees the amateur as a threat, someone trying to get in on the action (or his territory).

So, whenever the amateur sees a nice shot and begins the set up, the pro guy will run over to the amateur’s area and jump in front him. Seems like he’s trying to protect his domain by chasing away all others via intimidation or otherwise.

Of course all guests in attendance know that the wedding photographer has the right of way. It’s common courtesy that you let the pro shoot whatever shot he wants. So, why don’t some pros ease up and let the guests shoot whatever they want as long as their not trying to steal anything from the pro? Seems childish. It’s true that my livelihood isn’t based on photography, but memorable moments as a wedding guest are captured on our own cameras.

I recently discovered what the equivalent of talking on the phone while using the toilet is: IM-ing with your laptop while using the toilet. The thing is, people could probably get away with IM-ing with the laptop as opposed to while being on the phone.

The difference? Echo. When you’re in the bathroom, for some reason, it’s very echo-y. I suppose it has to do with the sound bouncing off the walls constantly since bathrooms have surfaces which don’t particularly absorb much sound.

One of my friends confessed to his current activity while we were IM-ing recently. I found it amusing and slightly gross. At least he wasn’t giving me the play-by-play…

For the record, I do not use a laptop computer.

Cool study that Kraft did about Oreo Cookie eaters. There are different ways to eat them (Dunkers, Twisters, Biters) and they concluded some habits that go with them.

Is it okay for a man to have long fingernails? I always picture men’s fingers has rough and with short stubby nails. Well, I saw this man today on the train and he had long fingernails similar to a woman’s.

It was very odd because the first thing I saw of this man besides his pants being too long was his hand. I actually thought for a moment that this person was a woman simply because of his fingernails.

And yes, I do think of random things while on my trainride to work.

I love it when a plan comes together. So I tried my hand at organizing a scavenger hunt yesterday and for the most part, things went well. We had given folks the right amount of time to visit all of the sites. I think I shall run it one or two more times. After all that thinking and planing, I should hope that others will get to enjoy the event as well!

*sigh* Another weekend has flown by. Time to rest up for the week ahead.
