Oh Boy, Oh Chef

So I was at the grocery store recently and was waiting in line and chatting, so I didn’t notice that the person in front of me was taking an unusually long time to check out. I finally looked up, and oh my goodness, there were about 30 cans of Chef Boy R Dee on the belt. Wow, somebody sure likes their spaghetti-os.

Perfect Stiletto Form

I was walking to work today and noticed this relatively tall lady walking in front of me. First I noticed that she kept looking at the glass of the buildings as we walked by them. Either she was looking at the merchandise display, or she was checking out her reflection. The jury is still out on that.

Then I noticed that she had really tall stiletto heels, maybe around 3-4 inches. I pretty much recall that every other time I’ve seen a woman walk in stiletto heels, there was always one form of wobble when she took a step. Frankly, it’s just hard to walk and balance on a tiny little stub of a heel. Well, I was truly amazed to see her walking with absolutely no wobble what so ever. It was as if she were walking in fuzzy bunny slippers.

Last day of the BAR exam. Good luck!

Sparing the Air

So today is apparently one of those “Spare the Air” days where they encourage people to find alternative ways to get to work other than driving. In an effort to encourage public transporation use today, many systems allowed free rides until around 9:30 this morning.

That’s a pretty good way to get people to ride on the systems for the day, but the question is, how do you hook these drivers permanently onto public transporation? Is one day enough to change someone’s mind? I’d say a week of this can change someone’s mind, although it’s completely out of the question to give free rides for an entire week.

The Dilbert in All of Us

So over time, I’ve told stories of things that happen in my company and have provided quite a bit of entertainment. One of my friends recently suggested that I entertain the world with my stories on my blog. I thought about it and figured it’s not the best idea. Why? Because you never know who’s reading out there. The last thing I want is a co-worker sitting next to me realizing that the idiot in my story is them! Maybe I’ll write a memoirs “book” of sorts some day when I leave the company.

Da Bar

To all of those recent and not-so-recent Law School graduates, best of luck on your upcoming exam!! You know who you are. Think of all the cool things you will get to buy after you make all that money!! You know, like a car so that you can drive around and not have to take the bus everywhere. Of course, I AM a fan of public transportation, just not in areas where it doesn’t work very well.

Friday At Last

What an incredibly long week that felt like. Thank goodness it’s Friday. Work has actually been a bit calmer these days, which allows me to take a breather and goof off every so often. I suppose I can’t really complain about that too much. I also have been losing my enthusiasm for the job. Hmm.. perhaps it’s time to move on.

Have a fun weekend everybody!

No Sightings

Hmm.. I find it odd that I’ve only seen one other person reading the new Harry Potter book. After all, hasn’t Harry Potter mania hit us all in the recent years? I suppose people will start reading or re-reading the 4th book in anticipation of the next movie that will be coming out in November.

Public Barefeet

So on the train the other day, I saw a guy who walked in barefoot. I wondered how clean and safe that was for him because he could step on all sorts of gross things or worse, cut up his feet on broken glass.

I suppose the barefoot thing was a choice since his style did seem… alternative (blue hair and all…). Ah, I guess it’s just some of the colorful things I see on public transportation.

Being a Girlie Girl

So I would say that I am not much of a girlie girl and many of my friends aren’t overly girlie. I suppose that growing up with older 3 brothers didn’t exactly help mold me into being a trendy dresser or master accessorizer.

Some volleyball friends and I recently laughed at ourselves because the group of us just really weren’t that girlie. We were spending several hours shopping together and prior to that, we wondered if it would be too much estrogen for us. Turns out that our shopping style falls somewhere between the “marathon women shoppers” and the “go into one store because I know what I want men shoppers.”

We also indulged ourselves in getting a “mani-pedi,” aka. manicure & pedicure. It was my first time getting my nails done in a salon and let me say, it’s quite a weird feeling to have someone do that for you. I’d say it’s the ultimate form of pampering, because it’s something you can do for yourself for free.

Massages are a form of pampering, but you can’t usually perform a massage on yourself. Also, massage can be used for therapy, as opposed to manicures or pedicures, which I don’t believe provide any physical therapy. I’d say it can be good for the soul though.

At any rate, all this girlie pampering and shopping stuff is in preparation for my friends’ wedding, which is happening this week. That means the manicure that I got yesterday has to last all week! Let me tell you something; I find myself constantly checking my nails to see if I’ve messed them up. I have a tendency to jam my hands into my purse/bag to grab phone/pda/wallet and realize that I can easily mess up my nail polish. It’s quite a challenge to try not to have things rub/scrape against your nails. Sheesh. I consider myself a practical gal and manicures are not on the list for practical things to do.
