Because these are too true

Thanks to one of FinePrint's fantastic interns, Deirdre, who sent an email my way titled "Random thoughts from people our age…" Here are a few of my favorites.

2. More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me. (This happens in our office all the time!)

3. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

5. Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you’re going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you’re crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

6. That’s enough, Nickelback.

7. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger. (I love naps!)

9. 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.

10. There is a great need for sarcasm font.

11. Sometimes, I’ll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what was going on when I first saw it.

13. How are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

14. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

18. Was learning cursive really necessary?

19. Lol has gone from meaning, “laugh out loud” to “I have nothing else to say”.

20. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

21. Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron test is absolutely petrifying.

29. MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

34. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

38. If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would probably just be completely invisible.

39. 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….

41. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don’t want to have to restart my collection.

42. There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

43. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

44. “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this ever. (Or for me, it means, I probably won't buy that.)

49. 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.

51. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

62. The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There’s nothing like being made to feel fat before dinner

Ok Suzie- this is SO wierd but I just completed a weekend post this morning on this same list!!! I chose my top five. Hey, great minds think alike :-)

Lisa Dez said...

All funny except #6. There can NEVER be enough Nickelback. No Nickelback=no Luc (his whole character is SAVIN' ME) and then where would I be?

suzie townsend said...

I know I'm actually a big Nickleback fan. I love the lead singer's voice, but two of our interns and another agent in the office are not fans so I kept it for them.

Ah, Luc. I <3 him :)

Kristin Miller said...

Awesome. Everything is funnier when you can relate to it 110%. Even (sorry Lisa and Suzie) #6. I have supa quick change-o finga whenever Nickleback comes on the radio. And I love that Twilight spoof where James wants his Nickleback CD back from Edward. Heeheehee.

Sarah said...

Hahaha. These are awesome and all so true!

Okay, and I like Nickelback as much as the next person, but is it just me or do they keep releasing the same song? I don't know.....

Christina Farley said...

This was the best list! I died over #18 and the shuffle list was so me! And the word saving. I'm obsessive.

Mardel said...

Allright:
#6- I agree with, because almost all of their songs sound exactly the same, with the same stressed tone to the lead singer. I like some of their songs, but if you've heard one, you've heard them all.
#9 - all my kids used to do that, they taught me how. Too bad it doesn't work on computers, cell phones, cable digital (you know, when the picture starts pixelating right at a crucial moment in the show you're watching!)
#10- we DO need a sarcasm font. Good idea.
#13 - now I just tend to roll fitted sheets up, so tired of folding laundry.
#29- Mapquest! frustrating and yet useful at the same time.
#34 - me too.
#38 - HAHA
#41 - I agree!
#42 - Been there!
#51- I have a hard time with them too. I know they are in danger a lot, but a lot of cyclist drive crazy on the road. I'm always afraid one is going to swerve right in front of me.

Loved the post today.

Kirsten Hubbard said...

oh man. this is my life.

Rachel said...

I love this! All so true, but they're the types of things you don't realize are universally true until you see them in print...

Shaka said...

hahaha holy crap suz, I love it :)

Brianne said...

Yes. Everything on here: Totally true! Especially number 41. I'm dreading the day they come out with whatever it is that comes after DVD's. LOL! So weird how we all have these same thoughts.. haha!

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
