Snagged Umbrella

Wowsers, the rain has started up once again. Luckily I’ve got my trusty large umbrella, although it is a bit on the large size. I realized just how oversized it is during my walk to the office.

I walked under some scaffolding, and my umbrella got a bit caught between two vertical supports which were spaced somewhat narrowly. Luckily the folks behind me weren’t walking to close behind me, otherwise, I would’ve broken a second umbrella.

So it appears that there is an e-mail string going around which apparently originated from one of the Friends stars, with photos of an event for a former co-star. I’m sure that the instant it hit the internet, it was passed around like a hot potato.

Technology today. Wow. In the past, the only invasion of privacy was crazy fans hiding in the bushes outside their house. Now, you’ve got websites posting information about the celebrity’s life and people forwarding e-mail that they [celebrities] have sent.

With all the fanatical fans out there who adore/stalk actors, singers, and athletes, how can they have a normal life? How can they go to the store and not get recognized? I guess it goes along with being famous.

Members Only

Recently, while I was riding a bus, I looked up from my book and noticed a familiar looking tag on a man’s jacket. I couldn’t believe my eyes, for it was, an actual, Members Only jacket. The thing is, it looked too new to be 20 years old.

I went on Google, and it seems as though you can still buy Members Only jackets. I suppose they have made it to the vintage/retro category. Heheh.

What would happen if you didn’t have a clock in your bedroom? What time do you think you would actually wake up? I know that for myself, I get out of bed when I think it’s the right time to, not necessarily because I’m well rested.

I know that when I’m on a trip and I stay in a hotel room, I don’t always have the clock right next to me. When I wake up, I might feel rested, but I’m also disoriented because I don’t know what the time is. Should I get up now? Haven’t I slept X amount of hours? What should I do?

In a perfect world though, we would be able to always sleep when we’re tired and wake up when we’re rested. Unfortunately, the world is not perfect, but I suppose we can help ourselves get the rest that we need by actually sleeping at a decent hour.

Post Korean BBQ Smelliness

So I had Korean BBQ from my favorite kbbq restaurant this evening. Of course, my hair and my clothes smell of the tasty food hours after the meal ended. My question is, how does all the smoke affect the people that work there? Do the smells just seep into their pores? Do they not even notice their own Korean BBQ scent?

Tricky Words

Bouillon - a clear thin meat broth.

Bullion - Gold or silver bars, ingots, or plates.

You know, the only thing good about “spring forward” is that it’s easy to change the digital clocks. Okay, time to sleep and hopefully not feel too sluggish with the hour of lost sleep.
