Things I Learned April/May 2012

Standard

1. People do not appreciate metaphors involving cockroaches.

2. Even if a tire is technically patchable, the garage may refuse to patch the tire if it’s worn down too far.

3. It is possible to buy a full set of tires for less than $330.

4. It is still possible in this economy to go from being angry about a bad review to being offered a new job in 2 weeks if you are sufficiently motivated.

5. It was more luck than motivation. I was in the right place at the right time.

6. I should shop more at Marshall’s. I bought a decent swimsuit for $13. All the women reading this swore and made plans to go to Marshall’s soon. None of the men gave a crap.

7. People are charmed/amused by the way I can’t get a pedicure without giggling like a 13 year old girl who just spotted her crush at the mall.

8. Mochas and yellow shirts don’t mix well.

9. The AMC at Ward Parkway is really nice and has comfy leather recliners.

10. Avengers is an awesome movie and I need to see it eleventy-billion more times.

    Marshall’s is awesome…and a whole lotta fun… especially if you’re not looking for anything specific. Woo-hoo on the swimsuit!! m ,,
    I, too, cannot get a pedicure without having…issues….
    Robert Downey, Jr. makes (almost) any movie worth seeing…and when it involves Jeremy Renner – ? – bonus!!

  2. Tires… Pffft! Still have to replace the ones on teh Escape. ugh. There is fixing bald. LOL And life is all about right places at the right time. Or in who you sit next to. Something like that. Half of the good things that my co-worker has gotten into ahve been because of sitting by me. Opportunity knocks, you just have to be quick about answering the door. $13? Huh? Oh. What? Yeah. LOL. Haven’t seen Avengers yet, but maybe Tuesday afternoon. You say the Ward Parkway AMC then… Hmmm…
