#891: Be the copy girl

The copy girl is the woman on Friends with whom Ross hooks up when he and Rachel are “on a break.”

I didn’t actually hook up with the Ross in this story, but I just found out the Rachel in this story was my copy girl. Are you following me? Okay, I’ll start at the beginning. Read the rest of this entry »

#890: Watch The Guest

On the one hand, I didn’t have the visceral (negative) reaction to this movie that my viewing partner did. On the other hand, I really didn’t like it.

#889: See Troll

I’ve been to my share–and likely yours as well–of small plays in New York. So I think I have a decent background to draw upon when viewing one.

At an hour and 20 minutes, Troll was at least a half hour too long–not because it felt long, but because there was a scene of at least a half hour that had nothing to do with the rest of the play. Read the rest of this entry »

#888: Show rage at work

I’m an emotional person.

But up until now, the emotions I’ve actively displayed in the office have managed to stay in the range of crying to extreme frustration.

#887: Buy something from Hollister

It was an accident. And it was actually from TJ Maxx.

I didn’t realize the tiny shorts that most likely weren’t created for someone in their 30s were a name brand, and a silly teen brand at that. (I don’t really know what Hollister is except that when a store popped up in my hometown’s mall, I distinctly remember someone comparing it to Abercrombie and Fitch. By which I assumed you needed an extremely strong tolerance to pungent cologne to enter.)

All I knew was that they were comfortable, and these days, that’s most definitely a prerequisite for clothing I purchase. Read the rest of this entry »

#886: Play Paperback

It incorporates a few things I love: books, word play, and games. However, it also forces you to do something I don’t love: pay attention to multiple things at once.

#885: Use Bluetooth

It took me nearly 4 months after I received Bluetooth headphones for Christmas (after specifically asking for them) to actually use them. I’d been waiting till I could more easily run again–because somehow I still think one day I will magically recover from whatever it is that makes me unable to run more than a half mile without stopping–since I thought I was really going to love Bluetooth, and I wanted it to be a special treat.

That’s not really that long when you consider there are some gifts I have from years ago that I still haven’t used. There’s something about receiving presents that makes me want to savor them before putting them to use. Read the rest of this entry »
