random thoughts from someone else

Someone forwarded these to me - many made me giggle.
Good random thoughts for weekend reading.

1. I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?
2. Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.
3. Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else tosay".
4. Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in' examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and said "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm....Goonies"
5. Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!
6. If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would probably just be completely invisible.
7. Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....
8. I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

I laughed out loud at #4 because I just did that spelling my new last name to a credit card company. Doh!

I totally hate that round the table icebreaker crap. Maybe I'm anti-social? Ah ha

The facebook one is particularly creepy. I think I have a total of 4 picks of me online. Then again, I'm unlikely to be stalked.
