two random thoughts
November 19, 2010
It’s Friday, and I’ve got a couple random thoughts I thought I’d send out into the Ether.
Random Thought Number One: I went to the midnight show of Harry Potter last night with the family. I think it’s the first midnight movie I’ve seen since I saw Led Zeppelin’s The Song Remains the Same when I was in college. Which might be the worst (or best) midnight movie ever. That movie needs to be seen either at Noon or when you’re high as a kite (or both), not at midnight.
Random Thought Number Two: I just mixed and drank a protein shake. I keep a big protein shake mix bag in a drawer at my desk, and once or twice a week, when I work through lunch (yes, it happens), I suffer through it. Here’s how it goes:
1. Grab the giant blue cup, open the bottom drawer, open the bag, and throw two giant scoops of powder into the cup.
2. Head for the kitchen, and run a bit of water into the cup. Not too much water. See, protein shakes are gross. Putting lots of water in means I’ll just suffer through that much more grossitude. I’d rather put the bare minimum of water in the cup, mix it violently with a fork until it’s wet enough to slide, then just tilt my head back and cannonball it. BOOM!
3. Get inexplicable protein shake rim on my upper lip and forehead. This is, well, inexplicable. I slam the shake, rinse out the cup, and then notice that I’ve got something weird and annoying on the outside of my upper lip and the center of my forehead. Yes, I know, it’s not inexplicable HOW the rings got there. Duh, the cup pressed against my face.
But as I’m rinsing the cup, then washing it out with a paper towel, as I notice the inexplicable rings, I pause the cup rinsing to use the paper towel to wipe off the ring feeling on my face. But it won’t come off. It’s been 20 minutes now, and IT WON’T COME OFF! I keep wiping my face with my sleeve, but I still feel like I’ve got protein shake on my forehead and my lip. It’s like radiation sickness. I feel like the woman from Drag Me To Hell, I just can’t escape. I need help.
I realize that those are events, not thoughts, but I didn’t like the way it sounded when I wrote Two Random Events.
There you go. Welcome to my world.
