Do you ever get to a point where you just start thinking and questioning anything and everything about your life? There doesn’t even have to be a trigger, like someone dying or anything. You just start thinking and can’t really stop. What am I doing? Where is my life going? Am I happy? What is happy? I mean, questions that just don’t have answers really, but they seem so important that you just have to find an answer. But there isn’t one. And that realization still can’t stop you from thinking about them, thinking and questioning your life, who you are.

Either this is totally inappropriate or completely appropriate for New Year’s Eve, I’m not sure. Ah well. Happy end of 2007, everyone!

Stupid Eyes

December 15, 2007 at 10:42 pm (Uncategorized)

So I’ve been really excited about getting purple contacts, and even finding a company that actually has color contacts for toric lenses (which I need in my right eye), but of course, when I went to get some today, I discover that the only colors the toric lenses come in are 4 that are not purple. And they’re not exactly fun, bright colors either, otherwise I’d try a different color, like green or something. But no, they are supposed to blend in with your eyes, so they’re not as bright as I would like.

I figured that if I need to have contacts, I might as well get fun ones. But noooo. Not for my terrible eyes with an astigmatism. Life isn’t fair. :sigh:

Home For Christmas

December 15, 2007 at 11:04 am (Uncategorized)

I just read this at The Presurfer:

A man in Chicago calls his son in New York the day before Christmas and says, ‘I hate to ruin Christmas this year, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.’

‘Pop, what are you talking about?’ the son screams. ‘We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,’ the father says. ‘We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Atlanta and tell her.’

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. ‘Like hell they’re getting divorced,’ she shouts, ‘I’ll take care of this.’ She calls Chicago immediately, and screams at her father, ‘You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?’ and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. ‘Okay,’ he says, ‘they’re coming for Christmas and paying their own way.’

Pass it on, and give credit to the blog where you found it. Let’s see if we can get this joke on every single blog in the world. Theoretically, this will create a pyramid of millions of link chains – any one of which can be followed back to the joke’s original source.

Amazement. Utter Amazement.

December 10, 2007 at 11:54 pm (Uncategorized)

People amaze me. I am constantly astonished at how cruel and petty and downright mean they can be. And I’m not talking about anyone who expresses it in a news-worthy way or anything, like hurting people or animals around them. I’m talking about the people you see on the street and have absolutely no idea that they have no soul until you start to get to know them personally. It is astonishing, honestly. And sickening. Where’s that Social Darwinism I’ve heard about?

Monster Laptop Bag

December 7, 2007 at 9:54 pm (Uncategorized)

I came across this amazing laptop bag from Barry’s Farm, a quirky little shop that has a good number of fun bags, via a fairly round-about route today, but once I found it, I instantly added it to my Christmas list! The site’s description states that it is “the most unique cuddly laptop sleeve available! Your laptop sleeve can be built to perfectly encase your laptop. Foam-padded and built to protect.”
