In no mood

I am in a rare mood today. Maybe it's my pants. I keep wearing these pants that make me feel like shit all day. I take them out of the closet and I say to myself, "maybe today I can wear these and not feel like shit" and then I put them on and always feel like shit. And then I am stuck wearing them all day.

The pants are total gay pants. From Kohls. I think I got them in the ladies section. Three things that are just very very wrong here.

I am blogging in an airplane. I am blogging in an airplane that is actually in the air. This is a whole new level of amazing. I wanted to be able to blog about my 18 hour travel day and all the annoyances that took place. The problem is...there were none. Everything actually worked out perfectly. I got to the airport with no problem. Stepped on the plane in the exit row. Watched The Informant (which knocks down one less Golden Globe nom I needed to watch)...had a four hour layover where I got food and a masage and internet access and now I am on route to Seattle in the exit row with plenty of foot room and internet access on the plane.

I saw a bumpersticker on my way to work on a suburu (obviously) that said "Miracles Happen. Think Good Thoughs."

So I did.

You know what disappoints me?

When I take the bus and I can't push the button when it's time for my stop. Someone always gets to hit it before me. I get all excited thinking about when the exact best time will be to press it...and then boom, "stop requested!"

You know what annoys me #10,757

When people attach this to their email. Hold on. I like the mountains....CONTROL P!!!!

I cross my heart

Here's the thing. This is NOT the west coast. This is the EAST coast, which means, we don't care about pedestrians in the crosswalks. So maybe I should just write down the rules of the crosswalk in case you aren't from around here and you need to know.

Rule #1: When you see a car coming at you at let's say at least 30mph, that does not mean you can just walk out in the road and cross because you are a pedestrian. That's right...even if there is a pedestrian crossing sign, you still can't do that. Unless you have the ability to walk through cars, then by all means, go for it.

Rule #2: When you are crossing the crosswalk, do not chit chat with your friend like you walking down Newbury Street window shopping. This is not time to dilly-dally.

Rule #3: Do not look at the person in the driver's seat that had to stop the car to let you walk. That person is not happy that he/she had to stop the car. Look straight ahead.

Rule #4: Do not yell at the person who had to stop short in order to let you walk with pharases such as "slow down!". Again, that person is not happy that he/she had to slow down.

Rule #5: If you are going to cross, then cross. Do not get timid and take a step forward and then take a step back, then take a step forward. Either cross or don't cross.

Rule #6: Do not put your hand up in a motion to stop a car. I don't care if we get $100 tickets if we don't. That is just annoying and YOU should be fined if you do that.

Rule #7: When you have a walk signal, you still need to pay attention to cars! You see, in MA we have right turns on red. That means when you have a walk signal, we can still go. So pay attention.

Rule #8: We can jaywalk here. True. However, you can't just cross in the middle of the street when cars have a green light because you are too lazy to walk the 10 feet down to the crosswalk.

Rule #9: Say thank you when a car stops for you at a crosswalk. We didn't want to do it so if you say thank you, that will make he/she feel much better.

Things that should never be in a work email

1. Anything in pink type. So for example, Laura Goldberg, Development Specialist

2. Happy faces or sad faces. Especially sad faces. So for example, no :) or :(

3. Words such as 'pretty please' and 'oh by golly'

4. When asking someone to do something getting an email back that simply says, "I guess so."
