Random Thoughts

Today's random thoughts...

I have started bringing headphones with me to Starbucks so I can listen to my music rather than theirs while I surf the web.  It's not that I don't like Starbuck's selections, it's that I hate them, and they blare them at such high volume that I can't seem to block it out...until now.  Ah, thank you inventor of the ear buds, for another service rendered.  Now you have improved the quality of my workouts and my time consuming public wi-fi.

American Idol has lost my interest, but Heather watches the show still, and I caught much of the finale, including a vocally unimpressive but visually unforgettable performance by past winner Fantasia Barrino.  Apparently Taylor Hicks was unavailable, so they had to turn to Fantasia to resurrect one of the least successful Idols of days gone by.  For her performance, someone actually persuaded her that a glossy black sequined body hugging outfit would look great on her, which may have been true 40 pounds ago.  Needless to say, I couldn't help but think of what a rhinoceros would look like if it crawled it's way out of a tar pit.  It really was that bad.  You can probably find a clip on You Tube if you don't believe me.  If you watch it, let me know if Fantasia actually sang any words besides "yeah, yeah, yeaaaaah".

As I pulled into a Taco Bell last night for my first meal of the day at close to 7 pm yesterday (it was a hectic day - strike that, week - at work) an actual Mexican couple was leaving.  I don't know if I've ever seen a real Mexican  eating at a Taco Bell, but this is as close as I've gotten.  If only I'd been there a few minutes earlier.
