Random Thoughts for Oct. 19
I don't really have anything to write about. So here's a bunch of stuff on my mind right now.
*I think I mentioned Kentucky Fried Chicken about 80 times this week during random conversations at work. Subconsciously, I really want one of those Little Chicken sandwich-things.
*We NetFlixed "Thank Your For Smoking" and "Click", I was laughing during the entire "Smoking" movie and "Click" really surprised me - it was a little depressing and had a "family message" in it. Is Adam Sandler growing up?
*After listening to Sting talk about his new album "Songs from the Labyrinth" on NPR, I bought it off iTunes. It's actually pretty good, but it makes me want to go to sleep in a castle, in the Irish countryside, in the year 1678.
*The U.S. just hit 300 million people this week. Scary!
*While at Disneyland last Saturday, I overheard a conversation of 2 teen guys in line for Space Mountain talk about how "hot" the girl playing Ariel was. It reminded me of my friends and I in college trying to pick up on the chicks who were costumed characters. At the time, I thought it would be cool to get "Belle's" number.
*My daughter went in for her 15-month check up. She's in the 90th percentile for hieght and 50th for weight. I don't think I've ever met a parent whose kid is in the 50th for everything - does that kid exist?
*Fried Coke? First state fairs started deep frying Oreos, Candy Bars, Twinkies, Pickles on a stick and now Coke. I'm going to be the first to suggest deep frying butter and putting it on a stick. I'll make millions!
*Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. I didn't want to see this movie when I first heard of it. But now that Kazakhstan is upset… I want to see it. On Netflix though.
*Work just gave me a new laptop - 17" MacBook Pro - Sweet! Has anybody tried Photo Booth? Some of the pictures I take of myself look pretty scary with all of the effects. Everybody around here got new Macs (I've always been on one) but now we all share the scariest pictures, hang them up around the office, and try to guess who it is.
