Sunday evening: the catchall for homework and readings that have fallen through the cracks of a lazy weekend. Except…of course, that’s not what I’m doing, but rather justifying to myself that I will have time to read the article tomorrow, and that I don’t actually even know if I have the textbook yet (my housemate, Abby, who is in the same class was taking care of that. Has Amazon sent it yet? Who knows. Should I go check?...Only if I want to feel guiltier.) So instead, here I am, falling into the vortex of the interweb once more. Because I didn’t spend enough time online today when I looked for the perfect, on-a-budget brown leather riding boots for an HOUR earlier. Unsuccessfully. (ARE YOU OUT THERE, BOOTS?? By the time I find you I think it will be spring and then there will be no point. Alas.)
ANYway. I’ve had this plan in my head for a Friday Five post on Fridays to write a list of five…anything! each week. (Partly because it’s nicely alliterative, but mostly because I need some structure in my blogging life…) But so far, that idea has yet to make it from my head to the computer. So, to make up for that, I’m giving you a Sunday Six. Get psyched, because this is a once in a lifetime occurrence (because Friday Fives will be happening from now on, of course. Hold me accountable, k?). So, without further ado, and inspired by #1 which I had to deal with yesterday, here are:
Six Things That Are Actually Really Unnecessary In Life
- Getting things notarized. WHY? What does that even prove or do? I just don’t understand the concept. All I know is that it means I have to figure out where to go to get something notarized, and then walk to the library, and I just don’t see why it’s necessary.
- 3D movies. Umm, does no one else realized that this is just a way for movie companies to make more money? Or that $10 is ALREADY too much to pay to watch a movie, so why should we pay an extra $5 just to get some weird plastic glasses? (Although my cousin, who is in 8th grade and would know these things, told me that all the cool kids poke the lenses out of them and wear them as nerd glasses. So glad I'm in the know.) Mostly, I don't like that now EVERY new movie has to be 3D.
- Venti-sized drinks. Or coffee with extra espresso shots added. Really? Just sleep like a normal person, please.
- Radio commercials. Or commercials before those Vevo Youtube videos, or when you’re watching TV shows online. Or let's just say any commercials. Can’t you please just give us some peace, advertisers?
- This one stop sign that’s just outside church. It really is an absolutely pointless stop sign, and it backs traffic up so you sit in your car for 5-10 minutes just to get out of the church parking lot. My housemate Margaret said that sometimes the elders put a plastic bag over the stop sign on Sundays. I think this is an excellent idea.
- Basically any show on TLC. Except, the sad part is, even though I realize how unnecessary they are, that does not stop their addictive powers. I mean, you have to see what dress she ends up getting. Or the new outfit. Or…whatever. Let’s just say that it is probably a very good thing that we don’t have cable…
Please feel free to add if you can think of anything else. It's kind of therapeutic to rant like that, actually...
And on that note (...not), I might actually go try to read something. Wish me luck!
