As seen on the bus – Ms. Tin-foil Stink

Dear Ms. Tin-foil Stink,

4 of us saw you at the bus stop wondering what was in that mysterious tinfoil package that you were caressing with your hands. We kept trying to get a glance at it and caught each other several times in the process. Alas, you didn’t reveal your goods until you were on the bus sitting directly behind me.

I heard the soft crackle of tin-foil opening and several heads turned around; no surprise that it was the other 3 gentleman who were stealing glances at your mystery package 5 minutes earlier.

Then it hit me.

The god awful smell of your breakfast food waffled through the air as gently as a scud missile during Desert Storm. I immediately turned around and saw that you were eating a huge hunk of Munster cheese.

After realizing what you were eating, I immediately turned around to make it painfully less obvious that I was on the verge of vomited in my mouth. The master card moment was when the person sitting next to you got up and moved 5 rows up to try to evade the smell.

Don’t get me wrong. I love cheese. Everyone loves cheese. It’s just that myself and your fellow bus commuters just don’t love the world’s 4th smelliest cheese in the morning sitting right next to us.

May we suggest a tasty Starbucks breakfast sandwich instead?

Love,

Me

Are you right or left brained?

Found this gem through Greg.

The Herald Sun, a newspaper in Australia, has a cool page up with an animated image that can tell you whether you are right- or left-brained. Here is the original page, with the details.

Look at the image below. Which way is the dancer model turning, clockwise or counterclockwise?

which-way
Most people see it turning counterclockwise, which is correlated to being left-brained. If you see it turning clockwise, you’re right-brained. Can you make it change directions? for some it can be difficult to impossible. I can get it to change briefly if I really try (I see it turning counterclockwise).Here’s what they say it all means:

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
knowing
acknowledges
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
practical
safe
RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses feeling
“big picture” oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can “get it” (i.e. meaning)
believes
appreciates
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
impetuous
risk taking

Some people are able to see it change directions if you stare intently at it, or close your eyes and re-open then.I’m only able to see the woman turning clockwise. Looks like I’m strongly right-brained!

Good to know I’m not considered “safe”, “practical” or “reality based” 🙂

How does it look to you?

Talking smack on Xbox Live

You can credit my immature and juvenile personality, but I found this hilarious.  Watch a 5 min educational video on “How talk smack on Xbox Live”. 

Warning: Some language in the video may be unsuitable for the work place, so keep that volume low or invest in some headphones 🙂

Match the captions and win!

Despite the poor quality of the camera in my smartphone, I still take a lot of pictures with it. While going through the pictures yesterday, it surprised me how random some of the photos really are.

I figured it’d be fun to do a collage of mobile photos and have you match up captions to the photos.

1. PIC-0196 2.PIC-0104
3. PIC-0165 4.PIC-0192
5.PIC-0052 6.PIC-0205
7.PIC-0207 8.PIC-0206


Now the possible captions:

A. The morning after
B. Hurry up Nelly!
C. Harold & Kumar at White Castle
D. Mini-me
E. The most manly drink on the planet
F. Best bathroom view in the city
G. This town has no crime
H. Maybe it’s good to be single afterall
