random thoughts.

did you get the email?
the fwd of hysterical social commentary?
i'll spare you the rerun.
here are my highlights.
had a good laugh.

5. Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

YES. ALL THE TIME. how about the time Jordan Wheeler convinced me to take a different way to work. and after getting off at 23rd instead of heading northwest, i ending up on an eastbound bus. got off at 5th, only to walk south 3 blocks before cursing his name! luckily, i didn't have to turn around. the block system allows me to recalculate my route without embarrassment.

6. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

7. The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

Never made this mistake. But one time I sent an email to Matt (husband) asking if he wanted to Cafe Rio and cuddle. I got an email back about how much he loved Cafe Rio, and the cuddling was up to me - except it was from Matt, THE PARTNER OF THE COMPANY I WORKED FOR.

12. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

Roll is up in a ball, stuff it in a drawer and iron it before company arrives?

24. What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

I don't know but it sounds like something Chuck Bass would commission.

32. Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!

GUILTY. Although, I think having that many pics on the FB is ridic. they can't all be good...

39. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

51. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

My freshman roommate once snoozed from 5:00-7:00 am in 7 minute intervals. I finally erupted with "REALLY AMANDA? REALLY? GET OUT OF BED."

I feel like one time when we were roommates, folding our fitted sheets, we talked about how our moms had super anal retentive methods for folding them that we were forced to learn. Do you remember this? To this day I try to use my mom's technique but IT ALWAYS LOOKS CRAPPY ANYWAY. And folding crib fitted sheets? The same!

i totally remember. we were in our room at the KH - probably playing some version of "whose mom is crazier?"

I got some of those the other day and laughed at myself as well...and I have totally done the 180 degree switch and had to mutter something..much like I do when I trip OVER NOTHING on the sidewalk and feel the need to mutter something about a crack to justify to the other passerbys that I'm not a fool.
