I started this particular Random Musings Friday post about three Fridays ago. Then I never got to finish it. Because that’s the way life has been going lately. I’m either super busy or totally exhausted. I keep hoping for things to slow down or to win the lottery, but so far neither wish has come true. So I’ll keep hoping and keep waiting. In the meantime, here are this week’s random musings…
- Have you ever noticed that when you are on the phone with a customer service rep and they’ve been absolutely not helpful in any way, they still end the conversation with “Is there anything else I can help you with today?” Anything ELSE??? You didn’t help me with anything at all! They really need to drop the “else”. I think I’m going to tell that to the next person who is completely unhelpful to me.
- I think it’s pretty well accepted that while James Patterson used to be awesome, he’s basically just phoning it in these days. Mostly, he gets other people to write his books and just sticks his name on them and collects the paycheck. And the ones he does write alone, the Alex Cross series, are really just terrible. My question is…why do I keep buying them??? Maybe someday I’ll smarten up and stop handing this man my hard-earned money.
- Yesterday on the train, the woman in across from me was putting on her makeup. She actually used eyeliner to draw a mole on her face. I’ve never actually seen someone do that…I’m mean, outside of Halloween. Can anyone explain the point of that? Does she think she’s fooling anyone? Because, to me, it looked like she just got a little smudge of something there on her face. Is this a thing? Do people actually do this?
And lastly…a burning question from the bedroom…
- Do you use a top sheet on your bed? This has been an ongoing debate between J and I for the last 12 years. I do not like a top sheet on the bed and usually don’t put one on. I have a habit, stemming back from my childhood when I was convinced that the monsters under the bed were going to eat my feet, of completely wrapping myself in the comforter like a burrito. I no longer believe in monsters under the bed, but I still like having my feet wrapped in the comforter. Having a top sheet on the bed and tucked in at the bottom prevents me from doing this. J, on the other hand, likes a top sheet and finds it “weird” and “strange” that I have this aversion. So, as I do with most of our debates, I leave it to you all to tell me if I’m a total freak or if you agree that a top sheet on the bed is just unnecessary.
That’s it for me. Hopefully, I’ll be back next week. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
