This month was full of craziness. Mainly because of the move. Which is now done. I had millions of thoughts I wanted to share this month, but as moving takes up a large chunk of time, I was unable to post as much as I would have liked. Here are some of the things I thought about:
- I am becoming nomophobic. The terror I feel without my cellphone is greater than my fear of not knowing where my wallet is. And I do not know how people lived without smart phones or Microsoft Excel. I am ashamed to be feeling/admitting to this.
- You learn a lot about your loved ones when you move. You learn even more about yourself.
- I watched Anonymous for Shakespeare’s birthday (April 23rd, yay). I knew it was going to be something I was not going to agree with as I am in the whole “Shakespeare was really the author of Shakespeare’s work” camp and this movie was going with the idea that Edward deVere, 17th Earl of Oxford was the true author of the works attributed to Great Bard. What I was ill prepared for was the artistic license taken with the history of the time period, the sensationalizing of the life of Edward de Vere and Queen Elizabeth I and the absolutely ludicrous dialogue. “You promised you wouldn’t write! Why are you writing!” Good grief. Next year I am going to watch “Much Ado About Nothing”.
- I have been observing people driving around me lately. I have always maintained that there are certain types of cars that always have the same kind of drivers. This month, my view about people who drive BMWs was reinforced. I saw many different BMW drivers just acting like jack-holes. Notable instances that reconfirmed this belief for me would include a woman in a silver BMW who turned right on a red while a semi-truck that was going straight and had the right of way was going through the intersection, causing him to slam on his brakes and almost kill the three cars behind him who were following the letter of the law and giving him considerable berth due to his size and stopping power and a black BMW driven by a man with a child in the front seat who despite the lane merging and me giving him plenty of room to merge into my lane chose to wait until the last possible second because maybe he would have had a better chance later down the road. Many other examples I could share just seen in the month of April. My point is, if you drive a BMW I am sorry about whatever driving problem you have that causes you to be such a jerk. Sorry BMW drivers. Just calling it how I see it.
- I went to the Field Museum and saw the exhibit on Ghengis Khan, a historical figure near and dear to my clearly biased heart. Not only was the exhibit cool, but there was a guy in the videos about Mongolia and Ghengis Khan who was smoking hot. If in Chicago, go check it out, mostly for the whole sweeping hordes are cool thing, but also to check that dude out.
This has been my random post for the month of April. I’d love to hear what you have to say about this!
