Random Musings Friday…

So, I have a sinus infection and I’m very congested.  And because I’m really smart…I’m watching Grey’s Anatomy and crying.  Which is making me even more congested.  It’s not the smartest decision I’ve ever made.  Why does this show have to be so sad?  And why am I sitting here continuing to watch it?

Anyway…this is what’s been on my mind this week…

  • Do you know anyone who continually disappoints you and yet, you still continue to make plans with them? Are you still surprised every time they cancel on you at the last minute or change things on you or disappoint you in some other way?  Because I am surprised every single time.  Am I just a sucker?  Maybe some day I will stop setting myself up for disappointment.  Or maybe, at least, I’ll stop being so surprised.
  • Is there a real reason you can’t keep your cell phone on during a flight?  Or read an ebook during takeoff and landing?  Will it really interfere with the plane’s operation? Or is it just some bullshit they hand you to make it sound official? I really want to know this.
  • What kind of scratching is appropriate in public?  Because yesterday I was on the train and this woman stuck her hand up her skirt to scratch an itch.  She was clearly scratching her leg and not her lady parts…but it was still so tacky.  I’ve also seen plenty of men scratching their junk…or their asses.  This is all gross right?
  • Is it better to have a cold or a stomach virus?  Personally, I prefer the virus.  Colds make me miserable and I absolutely hate the stuffy nose and the coughing and all of it.  A stomach virus sucks too, but at least I can still mostly go about my normal day.  Also…I usually lose a couple of pounds.  So I’ll take the stomach virus every time.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!


  1. I think that both viruses and colds suck but viruses are what, usually 24 hours? I’d rather be miserable for 2 days than 2 weeks. Just my 2cents.

    Scratching in public grosses me out. I also hate when guys readjust themselves a lot. My brother-in-law does that. Makes me wonder if he understands what well fitting underwear is all about.

  2. I was forewarned about the first episode, so I waited to watch until I knew I wouldn’t have to go out in public after. Oh my gosh, so depressing.

    Yeah, why DO they make us turn our shit off? It’s the 2010s! You’d think they would have gotten a handle on it by now.

    I hope you start feeling better soon and that people stop scratching themselves in public around you. That’s nasty. An arm is fine, but everything else requires hand sanitizer.

  3. I haven’t seen Grey’s in years, but I remember crying during many of the episodes. I have heard this from everyone who continues to watch it. This is the way I am with Parenthood. Can’t ever get through an episode without bawling my eyes out.

    I always wondered that about turning off cell phones/electronic devices. And also, what if you’re the person that doesn’t? I’m sure there are so many people who either forget or don’t bother… and that scares me.

    Uhm, itching in public is never acceptable. Unless it’s your nose and you’re not reaching in :p
