Random Thoughts

Well kids, it's Monday, and since my brain is pretty much scrambelled this morning with a mixture of sleep and backed up phlegm, I figure it's the perfect time for some random thoughts.

1.) This morning a lady at The Weather Channel described the 28 degree temperatre in Atlanta as "frigid" at the same my my local temperature of -24 degrees scrolled across the bottom of my screen and it took every ounce of control I had to not whip the remote control at the screen. I still threw it the general direction of the screen for effect, though.

2.) Speaking of winter, we are down to two households that don't shovel or clear their sidewalks on my route to work. Hey, here's an thought: Just because you have young kids doesn't mean that you don't have to shovel the sidewalk you lazy, ignorant pricks.

3.) About half of the parts on your vehicle are held on by cheap little plastic connectors. Doesn't that inspire confidence?

4.) In March of any given year that is not a leap year, the dates fall on the exact same days of the week as they did in February. I have never noticed that before. Isn't that kind of kooky? Like, if February 5th was on a Wednesday, then March 5th will be on a Wednesday too. I sort of with every month followed suit, but the math just doesn't work out.

5.) A recent poll found that 62% of Americans are in the majority.

6.) In the Midwest, it's almost like the worrying and planning and trying to keep on the rigid schedule that we decide we must keep on vacations actually takes up the whole vacation and I sort of think we like it that way. Vacations always end up being more stressful and less relaxing than when we are on our daily grinds. It is one of the strangest dichotomies of our existence, and it confuses the hell out of all the people on the coats. So I guess it's not all bad.
