Deep Thoughts by Kelly
(Any SNL fans out there? I stole this week's blog title from Jack Handy. Google him)
You guys. I bought a house yesterday. I move on Saturday. And as such, my brain is mushier than a pound of overcooked peas. (Nice metaphor, huh?)
So I thought that rather than take another week off this summer, in what can only be described as a shoddy performance on my part thus far, I thought I would regale you with just a few of the random thoughts that go traipsing through my mind at the odd time when I actually have a moment of silence. You know, like in the shower or at 4 a.m.
1. Augmented Reality. So far, I have completely ignored its existence. Is that wrong? What the HELL is it anyway? Do I actually need to know?
2. The Laundry/Clothing Existential debate: When does clothing become laundry? And when does it become clothing again? Does it hinge on whether it is in a basket, a dresser/closet or the machine? Somebody help me out here.
3. Why are people afraid to try new things? Because they are scary? Where would we all be if Johannes Gutenberg had been afraid of inventing stuff? Selling Amway. We would all be selling Amway.
4. All of life’s questions and answers can be found in Beatles songs. True story.
5. Why can’t GRAPH EXPO be held in Connecticut this year? Why must I find nannies for crazy long hours, get on a plane, and crash on people’s couches just so I can come and hang out with all you dweebs for a few days? Oh yeah. That’s right. BECAUSE YOU ARE AWESOME.
See you there. I hope.
