Saw this on CBS Sunday Morning couple of weeks ago.  Thought it was kind of neat since Gina posted the other week about graffiti. 

is it me or has there been a huge influx of pirate news? more than ever, i’ve been reading about pirates taking over. i’m talking i went from reading about no pirates to all of a sudden 4 or 5 pirate attacks in the past year (from what i can remember). if we were doing a year over year or lifetime over lifetime percentage change, it would come out null in excel.

but seriously, i’m assuming these pirates don’t look like what i probably think they should look like. you know like ..


i don’t know. i think if you’re going to be pirate, captain hook that shit up. what’s more badass than thattt?

seriously. probably one of the strongest and most determined group of people there is in the world.  it’s a freaking strong cult following. i don’t know what it is about colbert. but he says something, and the next day, things are a happening. i, too, am part of colbert nation. tune in tonight to see if they name the space shuttle after him. comedy central. 11:30 est. pm.


This seems like a common sense really.  But this is the second time in less than a week where I saw a woman in my office building wearing something entirely inappropriate for work.  Last Friday, it was a woman wearing a really thin white shirt with a really lacy bra.  Which made my mind wonder, so I can’t even begin to imagine what it did to the the men in the building.  And today, I was talking to a girl who’s shirt was so low, I was genuinely afraid that her boobs were gonna pop out of the shirt.  I had really hard time concentrating on our conversation and had to try really hard not to stare at her boobs.  Is this what it feels to be like to be a man???? Scary.

…yourself trudging through rain and mud in the hottest footwear collaboration.  i doubt you’ll feel even the slightest of pang and would rather take the long way home.


It’s simple.  If there are number of lanes are merging, simply, “you go, I go.”  Maybe it’s too simple of a concept for some people to follow.  Wanting to save 15 seconds in their route, completely over-rides all respectable, mature, and honorable behavior during rush hour.  And when this rule breaker tries to merge ahead of everyone who have been sitting there waiting their turn, I ALWAYS try my darnest, not to let them in my lane.  But somebody always caves in.  And the bastard gets a way with it.   Except this one time. 

My husband and I have been waiting by the Holland tunnel for what felt like days when this punk kid tried to get into our lane.  In our attempt to keep him out of our lane, our side mirrors touched and the kid flipped out.  It almost turned into an actualy physical fight.  I had to stop John from grabbing “the club” from the backseat.  The kid’s justification, “why are you being such an asshole, why can’t you just let another driver in? what’s a big deal?”  I was totally speechless.  Is this what’s going through the minds of the folks who break “you go, I go” rule, while the rest of us sit patiently through a traffic waiting our turn?  WTF??????

I’m sure these folks also try to cut lines at DMV and have way more than 10 items at the express check out lines at the groceries.  Seriously, does it really take that much effort for us to be polite and behave like civil human beings????
