- while i understand that blogs are about NOWthelatest and thus the most recent entry must be up top, it makes reading a-recently-discovered-new-to-me-but-been-around-awhile blog from beginning to now quite frustrating. you scroll to the bottom of an archived month. then you have to scroll to the top of that entry. then you read it and end up at the bottom of the page. then you have to scroll up to the top of the entry before that, possibly missing it if the headers aren't that obvious. then your scrolling finger gets so tired you start using the whole length of your arm from wrist to elbow to do the copious amounts of scrolling. oh wait, you don't do that? sorry, i guess it's just me.
- i really can't whistle. the bear and i worked on this last weekend for a bit. it even involved me getting a little light-headed while blowing air through my pursed lips really hard to eke out some semblance of "whistle" while walking through south coast plaza. we've been working on this off and on for about 8 years now (mostly off). i think it may be time to throw in the towel despite the fact i got a less airy/breathy sound out finally.
- along with our watch tans, the bear and i both now have ring tans. this makes me way too giddy. tee hee.
- i read really really really fast. well, only things that are fun to read. for example, i typically read fun novels within a day. i just can't stop reading. i'm not the type that wants to save some for later. i want it all. NOW. (so a child of instant-gratification-seeking, entitled-to-everything-feeling gen Y). too bad this doesn't apply to educational reading. i've been
readingskimming this for about a month now. while trying to read that, i've also read half a cookbook, parts of something else educational that i'm actually very interested in but still can't get through, multiple people magazines, twenty billion blog entries, daily devotionals almost daily, and a couple of real simple magazines.
- i teared up just right now while watching this:
because the world really doesn't revolve around me (thank goodness). the footage at the DMZ and in alhambra, ca particularly struck a chord with me for personal reasons. on the other hand, the places i haven't been made me smile the biggest.
ETA: stride is my favorite gum. it really does last ridiculously long. i am so glad costco now carries it so i don't have to go to smart&final just to buy gum in bulk. i can now pick it up with my toilet paper.
