Soap

Why do I have to always refill the soap in the bathroom at work? I seriously cannot blog about it again…it’s getting ridiculous. Will someone at my office please refil the soap so I don’t have to…for the love of all things holy.

Music stores

Why is it that I can’t buy just the album I am looking for when I go to buy a CD? I do the same thing when I’m online, I ended up buying 5 albums…in the past I would buy 10 albums at a time. Yesterday I went into a CD shop for the first time in a long time looking for an older CD. They didn’t have it so I bought 5 other albums instead.

Now I have to go on a hunt for some out of print CD in some small shops I found last year with giant used CD bins. Yeay! Who wants to bet I pick up 10 used CDs for $5 each?

Forgetful

Why is it that I have thought of three things I wanted to write about in the past week and I can’t remember any of them when I am in front of the computer? I had a funny question last night that would have been “perfect” too.

Damn I hate that.

Valentine’s Day

Why does this guy have it so right and the rest of us have it so wrong? Valentine’s day @ zefrank.com

I guess some traditions get lost…

“If you think about it, saying ‘I love you’ on Valentine’s Day means less then it does pretty much any other day of the year; it’s like there’s inflation on the currency of romance or something.”

Even better…

it occurs to me:

flowers are the only things you can kill, wrap up in paper and give to someone without it being creepy.

for example: here’s some dead puppies. they’re red. irish setters. red means i love you.

Happy Valentine’s Day*!

Parking

Why is it so hard for so many people to park correctly?

Today while leaving for lunch someone had parked so close to me on the driver’s side that I had to get in on the passenger side and climb over the console to get into my car. The worst part is the person that parked on the passenger side was parked almost as close at at a crazy angle so getting out was next to impossible.

To further prove that people are stupid at parking…when I stopped at the bank I parked in the “ATM” spot, right next to the handicap spot with the extra wide zebra stripes so it’s handicap van accessible. Someone pulled up behind me in an SUV, paused, then parked on the zebra stripes and had their mirror almost touching mine they were so close. CRAZY PEOPLE!!

I could tell you that all three drivers were women, but that would start a fight -even though it’s true. Ha!

Camera flash

Why do people use a flash at large sporting venues and concerts when they are sitting 2 miles from the action?

I need to do a public service for a moment…

Using a flash for something more than 6 feet away is useless unless you have a professional camera with an external flash. Even then, the distance is very limited. You are better off saving your batteries and just trying to take the photo while holding still. I know on some new cameras and even disposable ones this is impossible…so for those of you in that seat: are forgiven. Everyone else, please stop using your flash.
