Ever have so much to say or so much on your mind that you don’t even know where to begin? That is how things have been for me lately. Have lots on my mind and will throw some bullet points out there for you. A more focused post will follow after the overflow is gone, I am hoping.
- I bought a pair of mittens yesterday because I found I do not enjoy cleaning snow off my car without protective hand gear. When I was driving home, the expressway was not express, but was pretty. I was reminded of rivers that might have headlights and brakelights floating on the waters. As I turn into the most focused of drivers when it snows, it was the only flight of fancy as I drove along. Unless you count that I thought my hands looked like Lego people hands because they were clenched around my steering wheel so tightly. That is somewhat fanciful I guess.
- I have only 35 more episodes of Jeopardy that I DVR’ed to catch up on. Down from 48 a couple of days ago. As it is on my bucket list to be on Jeopardy, lets consider this training and not craziness.
- I have been hearing more commercials aimed at men for products that are sterotypically for women. Aimed at weight. An example is Weight Watchers and their campaign with Charles Barkley. I find that choice somewhat strange because he doesn’t strike me as influential. Remember… He is not a role model. He said so himself. In addition, I wonder how many men will be fooled byDr. Pepper 10, which is for men only. I wonder if I imbibe, will I sprout an extra appendage? Stupid Dr. Pepper, just say its “not for women” and droves of men will drink your product. Morons. I also wonder if all this emphasis on men and weight will distort the way men feel about their own body image.
- I am ready for baseball season. The Cubs are going to win the World Series this year. Remember, you heard it here first. Theo is greek for god, right? Well how can a team run by a god lose? And if they don’t win this year, in true Cub fan fashion I say to you this… “There’s always next year” All bases covered…
- I am reading The Art of War by Sun Tzu even though it is not on either of the lists for my NYR. So far I am a little bored with it.
Other thoughts of mine are far too fleeting to be documented here. But I hope with this outpouring, I will clear the path for other more interesting and exciting thoughts to evolve into orange peels. Stay tuned.
