Every blogger has them...
...story seeds, half-baked blogs and partial posts in the "draft" section of their editor. Right now I've got 49 different draft ideas in various stages of completion.
Well, I think it's time to clean out the closet. Since none of these posts are complete enough to be published on their own, I thought I'd combine some of these together here and close a few of these cold cases once and for all.
If cutting all the fat kids in half is good news, I'd hate the hear the bad news!
Why is it the things that are best for you are always so hard? Why can't laying around eating potato chips be the best thing for your body? Would that be too much to ask?
Is it just me or does it totally drive you nuts when the investigators on shows like CSI can recover impossibly obscure information with just a few clicks on the computer? This is a scene from an actual show I watched recently:
"Show me a satellite image of Chesapeake Bay from 1999. (click, clickety, click) Good! Now, give me the addresses of all the houses that have tin roofs within this area."GAH! Here's another peeve... why do they still have to use that stupid "555" prefix on telephone numbers? Here I am completely invested in a TV or movie plot, suspending the fact that what I'm watching is fiction, and as soon as they whip out the "555" I am immediately transported back to reality and the moment is ruined. They seriously can't come up with a better fake number than that?
If you walked into a public restroom and heard the toilet running, would you walk over and jiggle the handle to stop it?
Don't know where this is from or how long it's been around, but it sure gave me a chuckle.
