Some useless stuff that occupies my mind...

- What is it with songs that spell words? I was flipping through the radio the other day and heard a song that was spelling something... I had to really focus for a couple minutes to figure out what it was spelling: T-E-Double N-E-Double S-Double E-G-I-R-L... Are you freakin' kidding me? I promptly changed the station.

- Driving by the local tanning salon yesterday, I noticed a sign in the window that said "T-BURN COMBO." Apparently, the tanning salon sells a weight-loss pill called the T-Burn Combo. My question: Is it really good business practices to place words like burn, blister, or cancer anywhere near a tanning salon's entrance?

- I lose sunglasses like no other. This is why I refuse to spend more than $10 on any pair. The minute I buy a nice pair of glasses, I either lose or break them. It is kind of a phenomena similar to the losing of socks in the dryer. Nobody really knows where they ever go and for whatever reason, they never seem to show up again.

- I try to eat foods that are good for me. Seriously, I really do. I'm also trying to lose a few pounds right now. So, why is it that the restaurants that sell healthy foods don't have a drive-thru window? I understand that if I want to eat something with less than 50 grams of fat per serving, I should be willing to get out of my car and walk into order my food. But when I'm in a hurry and running late for work, it sure is hard to spend the extra time and energy just for the sake of being healthy.

- Book to recommend: My Friend, Leonard by James Frey. Yeah, that's the guy who wrote the (partially) fictitious memoirs that pissed Oprah right off. This book is the follow-up to that book and it was way better than A Million Little Pieces. I really enjoyed it. My favorite part how the cover says, "An imaginitive story of real life."

- Current nail color: Royal Flush Blush.

I'm with ya on the sunglasses thing. I lost so many that friends and family just advised me to stop buying them. I'd look everywhere and never found a single pair. WHAT HAPPENS TO THESE THINGS?

I think the only song I like that spells a word is the one sung by Aretha.

T-burn...I definitely thought it was something to do with the tanning bed...bad advertising is right.

Sunglasses...I don't want to jinx myself, but I have a couple of really nice pairs (still)! I do know many people that say the exact thing you do about sunglasses.

Well, Wendy's has got salads to go! But I don't know of anywhere that has grilled salmon to go! Wish I did!

my current nail color: french/clear
