Random III

It’s Friday so why not do another post about my random thoughts/observations/questions? I might as well make this a Friday ritual…

  • why isn’t the number 11 pronounced onety-one?
  • have you filed your taxes yet?
  • just found out i am going to Seattle for work — sweet!
  • is it how often you drink or how much you drink which makes you an alcoholic?
  • or is it just if you do bad things when you’re drunk that makes you an alcoholic?
  • women with long legs and high heels are sexy except if they cannot walk in them (do some girls just not care? or do they really not realize how ridiculous they look trying to walk in them?)
  • speaking of women, they should all own a pair of low top, black, chuck taylor’s (just saying)
  • i cannot decide if lingerie is just a waste and only looks good in magazines or if it’s really practical
  • download ‘Be My Thrill’ and ‘World Spins Madly On’ by The Weepies
  • does anyone want to buy my iPad?
  • blowing your nose too much and having it get raw is awful
  • my morale at work would increase if it was casual day every day
  • i think there was some slight sarcasm ^ then again…
  • logging what you eat definitely makes eating healthier much easier
  • i turn 24 in approximately 16 days — i can’t decide if that’s old?! haha
  • i’ll be in florida on the beach for my birthday so it doesn’t really matter
  • i have no explanation for why or why i didn’t capitalize certain words in this post
  • i’m going to see ‘Hair’ this weekend at The Orpheum
  • do people generally prefer sex with the lights on or off?
  • does pressing the elevator buttons more make the door close faster?
  • if you haven’t made out in an elevator, do it. you’d be surprised how fast you get to your desired floor
  • this is what i’m eating for breakfast tomorrow morning
  • disregard what i said about eating healthy above (saturday is my free day)
  • on that note, have a wonderful friday and weekend, folks

My New Library Card.

Minneapolis Public LibraryWalking downtown one day this summer might have been the best decision I have made since I started school in Minneapolis at the University of Minnesota.  I walked downtown to get a library card.  Seeing as I worked full-time during the summer I thought I might as well start reading afterwards rather than sit around and waste time.  I have checked out a wide variety of books and have read more books in the past 6 months than I have read in my entire life.  I won’t sit here and list off the books I’ve read, but the two latest are Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X for Dummies and Freakonomics.  The former one is a perfect introductory book to Mac programming and the tools it offers.  I have been curious about developing for the Mac and especially the iPhone.  An iPhone development book is next on my request list.  As far as Freakonomics goes, it has been quite entertaining.  It sheds light on various topics many people rarely think about or think they know everything there is to know about.  Once I finish it I plan to checkout the “freakquel” SuperFreakonomics.
