Random Thoughts - long read

Recommended Posts

I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

 

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.

 

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize

you're wrong.

 

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?

 

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.

 

That's enough, Nickelback.

 

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was

younger.

 

The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This

recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be

ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

 

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.

 

There is a great need for sarcasm font.

 

Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and

suddenly realize I had no idea what the fck was going on when I first

saw it.

 

I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes

stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes

shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at the

right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a

millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really,

really gets it.

 

How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

 

I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than

take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

 

I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your

computer history if you die.

 

The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish

a text.

 

A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the

spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.

 

Was learning cursive really necessary?

 

Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to

say".

 

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

 

Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron

test is absolutely petrifying.

 

My brother's Municipal League baseball team is named the Stepdads.

Seeing as none of the guys on the team are actual stepdads, I inquired

about the name. He explained, "Cuz we beat you, and you hate us."

Classy, bro.

 

Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I

hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

 

How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and

smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

 

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"

 

What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each

other?

 

While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and

instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

 

MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I

know how to get out of my neighbourhood.

 

Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the

person died.

 

I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the

shower first and THEN turn on the water.

 

Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty.. Pants? Pants never get dirty,

and you can wear them forever.

 

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

 

Bad decisions make good stories

 

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!

 

Is it just me or do high school girls get sluttier & sluttier every

year?

 

If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would

probably just be completely invisible.

 

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....

 

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work

when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything

productive for the rest of the day.

 

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want

to have to restart my collection.

 

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.

 

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.

 

"Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

 

I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching

TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will they judge me

if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't watching this.

It's only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room.

Will we still be friends after this?'

 

I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damnit!),

but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to

voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run

away?

 

I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing

anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

 

When I meet a new girl, I'm terrified of mentioning something she hasn't

already told me but that I have learned from some light internet

stalking.

 

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.

 

Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed

for pedophiles...

 

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.

 

Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not

know what time it is.

 

It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

 

I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to

answer when they call.

 

I think that if, years down the road when I'm trying to have a kid, I

find out that I'm sterile, most of my disappointment will stem from the

fact that I was not aware of my condition in college.

 

Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to

with it.

 

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys

in a pocket, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass

everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about

1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

 

My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would

happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?

 

It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on CNN.com and the

link takes me to a video instead of text.

 

I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they

drive behind obeys the speed limit.

 

I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

 

I disagree with Kay Jewellers. I would bet on any given Friday or

Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

 

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 like a fat bastard before

dinner.

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)  
    • Whether your relatives were especially generous with their checks or you intentionally set up a cash registry, let’s be perfectly clear: There’s no right or wrong way to spend your wedding gift money.  So sit down and start talking to ensure you’re both on the same page, then check out some of our favorite ideas for spending (and saving) those dollars wisely. Be Sensible About the Long Run
      Sometimes it pays to be a responsible adult, even if it seems boring on the surface. Before that cash starts burning a hole in your pocket, it’s a good idea to “pay yourselves first.” That means paying down debt (especially if you racked up any for the wedding itself), starting a rainy day savings fund, or even contributing to your retirement accounts. It might feel like a lifetime away, but one day you’ll both be glad you made such a sound investment. Save Up for Something Big
      A wedding windfall offers the perfect opportunity to get the two of you closer to a future goal you’ve been dreaming of. It can be as immediate as investing in much-needed new furniture (you can finally dump that lumpy old mattress!), or as far down the road as saving up for a home. Or maybe you want to buy a new car—especially if that sporty two-seater you’re currently driving doesn’t exactly match up with your plans to have kids. Whatever the goal, working toward something together will only serve to strengthen your relationship. Bright idea: Want to put your wedding wedding toward a down payment on a house? Consider opening a certificate of deposit (CD), especially if you’re not planning to buy for a few years. CDs tend to offer higher interest rates than savings accounts—and since you can’t touch the money for a set period of time, it’s useful if you’re usually tempted to tap into your savings for more immediate needs. Have a Little Fun
      Once you’ve got the future squared away, it’s okay to treat yourselves—so go ahead and enjoy a mini splurge that’ll benefit both of you. Reserve a small amount to put toward a shared interest, like a high-tech wine fridge or top-of-the-line home theater system. Or if the two of you have been texting each other pictures of golden doodle puppies for weeks, and you’re serious about raising a dog or cat, visit your local shelter or check out reputable breeders to find a new four-legged friend. Allocating a bit of the funds for something exciting maintains a healthy balance in your spending habits, making long-term financial wellness more achievable. (You know what they say about all work and no play.) Bright idea: Take a class together. Having a common interest helps you grow as a couple, so pick something you both want to learn, like a foreign language, and enjoy that extra quality time.
