So, today is an update and a distraction.

First - the update: I've had two requests since I posted yesterday. Both from awesome agencies. *squeals*

Second - the distraction: I got a hilarious e-mail that I HAVE to post because I was laughing so hard when I read it that I actually snorted... and I'm not a snorter.

Random Thoughts of the Day:
~ I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

~More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

~ Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

~ I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

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

~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.

~ There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

~ How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

~ I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

~ I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

~ The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

~ I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

~ Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantrontest is absolutely petrifying.

~ Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

~ How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

~ I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

~ Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in' examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and said "Yes that's Gas as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm....Goonies"

~ What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow eachother?

~ While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

~ MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

~ Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

~ Bad decisions make good stories.

~ If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would probably just be completely invisible.

~ Can we all just agree to ignore Blu-Rays or whatever else comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.

~ There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

~ 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.

~ "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

~ While watching the Olympics, I find myself cheering equally for China and USA. No, I am not of Chinese descent, but I am fairly certain that when Chinese athletes don't win, they are executed.

~ I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

~ Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed for pedophiles...

~ Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is..

~ Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what to do with it.

~ A little boy asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the heck do I respond to that?

~ I wonder if cops ever get ticked at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.

~ Was learning cursive really necessary?

~ LOL has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say."

  14. Jenn, First off huge congrats! Good luck on keeping them interested! This list was so funny I had to stop reading. I'm at work and I couldn't keep quiet any longer. I got as far as the Goonies, though!
