Random thoughts from people 25-35 years old..

-I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

-More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can
think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell
my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves
me.

-Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you
realize you're wrong.

-I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?

-Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're
going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to
be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the
direction from which you came, you have to first do something like
check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to
yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're
crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

-That's enough, Nickelback.

-I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

-Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know"
feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose
not to be friends with?

-Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't
work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically
fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all
know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards
or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

-There is a great need for sarcasm font.

-Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
suddenly realize I had no idea what the f was going on when I first
saw it.

-I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually
becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting
90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's
laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little
bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the
only one who really, really gets it.

-How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

-I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

- I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear
your computer history if you die.

-The only time I look forward to a red light is when Im trying to
finish a text.

- A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the
spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.

- LOL has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".

- I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

- Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron
test is absolutely petrifying.

- Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart",
all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

- How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod
and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

- I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up
to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

- Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in'
examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete
idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and
said "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies"

-What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

- While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and
instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

- MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I
know how to get out of my neighborhood.

- Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the
person died.

- I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the
shower first and THEN turn on the water.

-Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty,
and you can wear them forever.

- I would like to officially coin the phrase 'catching the swine flu'
to be used as a way to make fun of a friend for hooking up with an
overweight woman. Example: "Dave caught the swine flu last night."

-I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

- Bad decisions make good stories

-Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their
profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got
the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if
I do!

- Is it just me or do high school girls get sluttier & sluttier every year?

-If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring
would probably just be completely invisible.

-Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go
around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly
nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be
a problem....

-You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work
when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything
productive for the rest of the day.

-Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't
want to have to restart my collection.

-There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are
going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

-I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me
if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I
swear I did not make any changes to.

- "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

-I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people
watching TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will
they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't
watching this. It's only a matter of time before they all get up and
leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'

-I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?
Dammit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and
goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone
and run away?

- I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not
seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

-When I meet a new girl, I'm terrified of mentioning something she
hasn't already told me but that I have learned from some light
internet stalking.

-I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle,
then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

-Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising
speed for pedophiles...

- As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers,
but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

-Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still
not know what time it is.

-It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

-I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to
answer when they call.

-Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.

-Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car
keys in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on the
Donkey - but Id bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze
button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time
every time...

-My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would
happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?

-It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on CNN.com and
the link takes me to a video instead of text.

-I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they
drive behind obeys the speed limit.

-I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

-I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or
Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

-The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw
they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words,
someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think
about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people
eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by
myself. There's nothing like being made to feel like a fat bastard
before dinner.

Hee hee. Is that ever not true?

(By the way, folding a fitted sheet is quite easy - it's all in how you tuck one corner into the other.)

Living in NY State and having had to frequently navagate the city, its surrounding burroughs, north Jersey and parts of PA, they had me at "Avoid Ghetto".

Because New York and New Jersey roads are designed to drive you like cattle in an abattoir into terrible neighborhoods where even Google Maps will go "Where the fuck is that?"

No Henriaraananeana.... and not because you're only 21.

Because you're a whore.

Random thoughts from people 25-35 years old..
...Hmmm, I used to be 25-35, but now I'm 43, but don't look a day over 50...

-I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.
I totally appreciate that my self-employment 'employers' do not pay much attention to Google mileage estimates...especially when I have a couple of errands to run on my way to work...

-More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can
think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell
my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves
me.
I'm working on my interruption tendencies...

-Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you
realize you're wrong.
I can enjoy this moment if/when I can link my logic to their more correct result...

-I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?
Absinthe & Milk should be illegal...Also, I call my apt. the $900+ Fireplace...

-Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're
going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to
be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the
direction from which you came, you have to first do something like
check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to
yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're
crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.
Nope, I'm very fond of 180's and mutter aloud my thought process while sporting arms akimbo and question-mark head (which I learned from The Boo...)

-That's enough, Nickelback.
For me, that'll do with the Feist and Feist-like ad-tracks...

-I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
You're still younger, you veal!


-Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know"
feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose
not to be friends with?
I rue the day I signed up for Facebook, yet it seems that everytime I contemplate deleting my account someone of unexpectedly meaningful origin/experience contacts me...

-Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't
work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically
fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all
know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards
or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.
Again with the veal...

-There is a great need for sarcasm font.
reAlLy...

-Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
suddenly realize I had no idea what the f was going on when I first
saw it.
A-Now, Clockwork Orange, for me, for instance...

-I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually
becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting
90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's
laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little
bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the
only one who really, really gets it.
Secretary, Miracle Mile, Myra Breckenridge, Morvern Callar, The Woodsman, Mysterious Skin, Apartment Zero, Mitt Liv Som Hund, Irina Palm, and etc.

-How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
Meet the puckers?

-I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
Those big blue Ikea bags are very handy...

- I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear
your computer history if you die.
If?

-The only time I look forward to a red light is when Im trying to
finish a text.
Reading or Sending?

- A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the
spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.
Suck harder...

- LOL has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".
Also, Lame On Lame...I prefer THH (teeheehee), and etc.

- I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
Emotionally bankrupt eater, are you?[/color]

- Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron test is absolutely petrifying.
[color=orange]Or so they would have you believe...


- Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart",
all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".
Lacking the common sense gene is an epidemic...

- How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod
and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?
Don't know, but if you say 'Pardon?' you might not have to resort to "What?" - 'scuse me, are you 'merican by any chance?

- I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up
to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!
There is honor among SUV's...

- Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in'
examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete
idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and
said "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies"
Apparently, a lack of [basic] military knowledge is attractive to some...

-What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?
Parallel lines meet at infinity...are you made of money?

- While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and
instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.
Mario Karma is not to be dismissed...

- MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I
know how to get out of my neighborhood.
Just pretty sure? There's the problem...

- Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the
person died.
You're not old enough to be reading the Obits; so you're an Omnilore are you?

- I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the
shower first and THEN turn on the water.
There are? What are your sources?...On another note, don't you find that the actual shower stream temperature seems to differ from that which your hand perceives when 'drawing' the stream?

-Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty,
and you can wear them forever.
Due to my nic I am necessarily deemed biased on this topic, but I will say this: I almost always take off my [smrt]pants when I feel dirty...


- I would like to officially coin the phrase 'catching the swine flu'
to be used as a way to make fun of a friend for hooking up with an
overweight woman. Example: "Dave caught the swine flu last night."
Or, Dave got his Bake-On...

-I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
Early onset of Alzheimer's?

- Bad decisions make good stories
Long story less long, as I always say...

-Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their
profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got
the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if
I do!
Left or Right? (Always protect your keyboard and screen...)


- Is it just me or do high school girls get sluttier & sluttier every year?
Yours probably do...

-If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring
would probably just be completely invisible.
Not to the Roadrunner!

-Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go
around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly
nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be
a problem....
Do you ever have clone-nightmares?


-You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work
when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything
productive for the rest of the day.
Herein lies the crux of my (seemingly) workaholic cycle that chewed me up and spit me out...

-Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't
want to have to restart my collection.
A-Greed.

-There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are
going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
Or slicing a little too deep...


-I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me
if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I
swear I did not make any changes to.
Or did you?

- "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.
Just goes to show you...I never pictured you as someone without hands...

-I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people
watching TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will
they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't
watching this. It's only a matter of time before they all get up and
leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'
Wrong but strong!
Fuck them!


-I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?
Dammit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and
goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone
and run away?
Perhaps your outgoing message wants to be more...

- I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not
seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
P'shaw, everyone you see is important - you're such a bloody snob!

-When I meet a new girl, I'm terrified of mentioning something she
hasn't already told me but that I have learned from some light
internet stalking.
Problem solved, meet a woman, as opposed to a girl...

-I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle,
then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.
OCD much?

-Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising
speed for pedophiles...
And you would know because...?

- As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers,
but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.
Yes, their muscle definition and lack of actual baggage are no match for their helmet-head and determination to reduce the urban human footprint - those fuckers!

-Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still
not know what time it is.
Good thing you're not Mr.Wolff...

-It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.
Call it whatever you want, as long as you can live with yourself...and they can put themselves in your shoes...

-I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to
answer when they call.
Ever heard of call display?


-Even if I knew your social security
number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.
That said, it's ABC DEE EEF...(I absolutely trust you and wish to point out that in Canada we group our id's differently...).

-Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car
keys in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on the
Donkey - but Id bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze
button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time
every time...
After my own heart...


-My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would
happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?
Beats me, I'm not authorized to breed...

-It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on CNN.com and
the link takes me to a video instead of text.
Pretend you're blind, then afterward you can be elated; it's all about distinction...

-I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they
drive behind obeys the speed limit.
[color=orange]Especially when there aren't any chickens handy...[/color]

-I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
You and my ex'es...

-I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or
Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.
MGD kisses are hard to beat, yes?

-The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw
they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words,
someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think
about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people
eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by
myself. There's nothing like being made to feel like a fat bastard
before dinner.
Let them think what they want...you can never have too many chopsticks, and etc.
Leftovers rock!
