Random Musings Friday…

This week got away from me.  I woke up this morning and was shocked to find that it was Friday.  Being busy really makes time fly by.  It also leaves very little time for me to get this post out.  So here goes…

  • I made a contribution to a charitable organization recently and as a thank you, they sent me an email with “virtual” cupcakes.  WHY???  Why would you send a person a picture of delicious looking cupcakes that they can’t eat?  It’s just mean.  I am very impressionable with stuff like that, so I’ve been craving the hell out of some cupcakes since Tuesday.  Luckily, today is a coworker’s birthday and I will finally get to indulge in a little cakey goodness.
  • Whenever a Maroon 5 song I get a smile on my face.  Not because Maroon 5 songs are so fantastic, but mostly because the sound of Adam Levine’s conjures mental images of him.  Specifically, this picture of Adam Levine.  And that picture…makes me smile every time.  Adam Levine is just really nice to look at.  Are you ladies with me on this?
  • Very often, when getting on and off the train, men will push women out of the way in order to get a seat.  Also…men will remain seated if a pregnant woman gets on and they pretend they don’t see her and let her stand.  I always wonder if this is just a NY thing or if it happens everywhere.  I also wonder if these men realize how rude they are being.

And lastly…a very important question…

  • What is the difference between a stalker and a lurker?  The other day I was on the phone with a work colleague.  While we were talking he said “Are you Fumbling Towards Normalcy?”  At first I was surprised…but then I realized that he was Googling me while we were talking.  It continues to freak me out a little when colleagues find my blog…but I put my whole like on the internet so I guess I can’t be surprised when it happens.  Also…I totally Google people I’ve spoken to on the phone but have never met, so I expect that everyone does it.  Anyway, when we finished our conversation I said “Ok, well you can go back to cyber-stalking me now.”  He was not pleased with my use of the word stalker and insisted that he was more of a lurker and that there was a big difference.  I wasn’t so sure.  I told him I would pose the question to all of you.  So…what do you think?  Is there a difference between stalking and lurking?  Also…do you Google your colleagues to find out thing about them?  And do your colleagues know about your blog or other parts of your personal life?

That’s it for me.  I’m off to go eat some non-virtual cupcakes.  Have a great weekend!
