The View From My Window

The world as seen from my window and through my eyes

Random musings about nothing at all May 14, 2008

I figure if Jerry Seinfeld could make a fortune from a sitcom based on nothing, than certainly I have an opportunity to increase the readership of my blog by following the same formula. Therefore, today’s blog entry is about: nothing.

  • Have you noticed how many serious natural disasters we’ve been experiencing in the past few years? Has the number increased or am I just paying more attention now than I used to?
  • Have you ever noticed that when Josh N. enters a room he has a “signature doorway appearance” not unlike that of esteemed character Kramer from the aforementioned sitcom?
  • Have you heard that Jason has gotten serious about his new swimming regimen, to the point of investing in Speedos, a swimming cap and Nike goggles?
  • Is it just me or are the allergies this year particularly bad? I feel like a walking, sneezing sinus headache most days.
  • Have you listened to any old, classic rock lately? Last night I listened to B.J. Thomas. Wow, that was weird.
  • Can you remember the last time you were cold in the middle of May? Do you think it will ever warm up?
  • I wonder how many people buy trombones on eBay? I posted a trombone for sale and am keeping my fingers crossed that someone wants to spend their recent tax incentive check on their band student.
  • How many students are counting the days, hours, minutes and seconds until semester ends? Do you think they’re as excited about it as I am?
  • Have you ever wondered why photography and technology conferences seem to be named for strange creatures, like Platypus and Thunder Lizard? Is this a strange tradition or just a bad choice?
  • Have you ever noticed that Lisa seems to have an affinity for purple? Yesterday I noticed at least 3-4 purple items on her desk. Coincidence or strategically planned? And, what subconscious message does purple send?
  • Have you noticed that Christine seems much more tired since George learned how to walk? She mentions he’s now starting to run. Poor Christine!
  • I think it’s cool that Chris has people fighting over him because he’s such a good writer/editor. Wish people would fight over me. It must be a powerful feeling! One of these days I’ll be able to see his name in a famous publication and say, “I knew him way back in the day when he was still a struggling writer…”
  • Do you think Annika had a good night and Paul will be able to get here by 7:45 for our meeting? Will I have to stop by Starbuck’s and pump him full of coffee so he’s lucid by 8:00? Does Starbuck’s even sell coffee in a cup as big as the one Paul keeps on his desk? If they do it would probably cost $20 to fill it up!
  • Yesterday I cheated and had a donut at Starbuck’s. It was good. I have a craving. I should never have opened Pandora’s Box and taken that first bite!!!!!!! Ahhhhh, the agony of getting back on the wagon.
  • That reminds me, we’re out of lettuce.
  • Have you ever wondered what I think about when I arrive at work at the insane hour of 6:30 a.m. each morning? Well, now you know. 🙂

    Funny stuff, Lori. I find the bullet point about lettuce to be particularly inspired.

  2. SpideyMizzou Says:

    OK…now the world knows I have speedos…great.

  3. Lisa Says:

    I do, in fact, love purple which is a combination of my other two favorite colors — red and blue. Some would say the subconscious message is the combining of the calm of blue and the passion of red for a nice balancing blend. Do I think about these things? Only in retrospect, but I do think color can have an impact on one’s state of mind. According to some sources, purple is the color most favored by artistic types. Go figure.

    I find myself thinking a lot about how people can become invisible so quickly. It’s really an odd thing about human behavior. I don’t think anyone intends for it to happen, but it always does.

    I’m behind at commenting. I’ve been asleep at my desk all day!

    And speedos, Jason? Really? Like the running shorts weren’t enough?
