Computer Rice

Quote of the day from J, “It’s like you’re ricing out your computer!” Which he said in response to my question of, “Does the case light up?” Yes, so I’m in the market for a new computer and all the parts have been purchased except for the case. I’m pretty picky when it comes to cases because my current computer is a little shuttleX and super cute as computers go.

Blame Game

I’m always amused when people spend a lot of time defending themselvse and trying to deflect any fault or wrongdoing. I’d say to just let things be and try to fix the problem. Some of my co-workers are great at shielding themselves from blame, which I find both amusing and disturbing.

Wedding in a Flash

When it’s all said and done, and you can make quick decisions, how long does it really take to spend a wedding? I’ve always thought that the engagement is the period of time in which the couple plans their wedding. After all, a lot of restaurants and churches are booked very far in advanced, so I can see how it takes a year to two years to plan a wedding.

However, what if you could get the site and the food all taken care of and the date was not an issue? Would it still take a year? Well, if I asked these 2 friends of mine, they would say 3 weeks. Yep. 3 whole weeks, albeit, it will be 3 very busy weeks. I got a call this afternoon telling me of the date and time. Why the rush you wonder? Well, actually, it’s call procrastination. They had a whole 8 months to plan, but they put it off until now.

Zoned Out

Sometimes I’ve got so many thoughts swirling around in my head that I’m not really paying attention to the current activity at hand. Take for instance today, when I opened my mail, I received a replacement credit card for one that’s expiring this month.

Rather than reading the “Please call this number to activtate that card” sticker, I just peeled it off, folded it in half and tossed it in the trash can. Afterwards, I grabbed a pen to sign the back of the card. A minute later, I realized that I needed to call and activate my card, so I had to dig into my loosely packed trash to find the sticker, which had slipped down the side almost to the bottom of the can.

Yeah, I should pay more attention to things sometimes…

Flip Flopping Replies

So my cousin is getting married tomorrow (hooray!) and the family invited some relatives to attend. Their initial reply was a definite “yes,” but then, about 2 weeks beforehand, there was a family matter which they believed would prevent them from attending. Of course, the instant the situation came up, they notified the family that they will not be attending the wedding.

Then it so happened that suddenly one (out of 3) of them would be able to attend afterall, and called yesterday to say they can make it. My question is, if a person said they couldn’t make it, is it still okay to call and say that they can go with only a few days notice? Alternatively, would the family be able to deny the invitee’s request to attend?

Woah, my triceps are a little sore from climbing the other day. 4 climbs (5.8, 10a, 10c, 10b) where I struggled up the last one. I must’ve been especially tired that day.

Bathroom Queue

So I attended a conference recently and I noticed that the majority of attendees were men. When I went to the ladies room, I was please to see that there was no line out the door as there is one often at a public venue. Then I turned to look towards the men’s room and noticed that there wasn’t one there either.

I found it really hard to believe that with 40,000+ people present, and at least 80% of which are men, there was no line for the men’s room! Where’s the justice in that?

Mini-Movie Marathon

So recently, I had a mini chick flick movie marathon with my friend C. Looks like it’s going to be the last one for a little while, as she’s finally done with grad school (congratulations!!) and will be moving back into her parents’ home for a little while. Here is the very short list of movies:

1. Monster-In-Law
2. First Daugther

“Yes I am!”

So recently, I was in a restaurant waiting for my table, and was probably sitting about 8 feet away from the hostess. She told me the wait would be around 15 minutes, so I just kinda sat around and chatted.

About 15 minutes later, she comes up to me and asks me my name because she had just seated someone prior to that with the same name, and apologized for letting someone else steal my table. Now, either someone else had the same name as me for a table for 2 OR someone stole my table!!

That reminds me of the series of beer commercials where this guy goes claims to be someone else and takes the limo ride/beer/hotel room.
