Random Madness

Today was one of those days where I just couldn't put logic to half of what I saw all day. Things are very different in my parallel universe....

Mall Food Court - Maddie and I were at the mall and decided to grab a bite to eat. We watch people troll for free samples of food. Bourbon Chicken and Philly Cheesesteak bits seem to be the most popular items. I would say that over 60% of the people went around the food court and hit it for seconds.

Oldest Child Shower - My son has a habit of never using the same towel twice. I buzz through loads of laundry each week. Tonight he needed 3 towels to dry off. After our recap of proper towel etiquette, I looked at the shower and the ceiling was soaked. WTF? If I was this way at that age I don't remember it. We are working on fixing this bad habit.

Friday Movie Day - A few years ago the people that I work with (myself included) would take Friday afternoons and go to the movies to view the Academy Award Nominated films. We haven't done this for a while. Today I ran out to the bank for a few minutes and when I returned the office was locked and everyone was gone. My co-workers assumed I went for a run and they decided to go to the movies. As it turned out, I didn't have my office keys and was locked out. Fortunately I was able to pull out my Airtran Frequent Flyer card and pick the lock of one of our doors. A skill I acquired at Ohio U. Maybe that's not so good.

Frostbite Prediction Run - I was able to figure out how to do a prediction run inside of Run Score, a running race software application. I was pretty proud of myself. Next I started to enter all of the runners into the database. There are 4 people who predicted they would "run" a 5K in 60 minutes. Are you freakin' kidding me? I am all for people being active and trying to get fit...but an hour to go 3 miles? The bad news is I have to wait for them to finish AND it delays getting the results to everyone else.

Friday Night Prime Time TV - The choices on the networks are Howie Do It (NBC), Ghost Whisperer (CBS), Wife Swap (ABC), and Cops (FOX). Have we all become idiots? Friday's used to rule. Here is the 1977 Friday night line up - Donnie & Marie (ABC), The New Adventures of Wonder Woman (CBS), and Chico and the Man (NBC). Ok....maybe things haven't changed.
