My Living Situation
Granted, I do have an interest in all of these things. But I'd really like to talk with people about something OTHER than those things every now and then. So here is a list of things that I would like to talk about with anyone.
Burger King Commercials. You know what I'm talking about- the ones with "The King". I laugh loudly at the newest one with reverse pick-pocketing. If you haven't seen it yet, you definately need to watch more TV just so you can experience that pleasure. Let's talk about "The King".
The 80's style. Hypo-color T-shirts, fluorescent colors, big hair, Reeboks, stretch pants, parachute pants, sweaters with animals on them, side ponytails, pegged pants, tie-dye..... I could go on and on and on. Oh, the horror of it all. Let's talk about the 80's style.
Books. Books on philosophy, books on religious matters, fictional suspense books, true crime books, Oprah's Book Club books, made-into-movie books, romance books, sci-fi books, biographies, etc. Let's talk about books.
Halloween costumes. The one time a year I allow myself to dress like a prostitute and it's 100% socially acceptable. What's everyone dressing up as this year? What are your kids going to be dressed up as? Are these costumes being bought at a store? Online? Homemade? Let's talk about Halloween costumes.
Planet Earth. Either the show, or the planet itself. I bought Michael the BBC series called "Planet Earth" for his birthday. It's pretty awesome and explains SO much about how climates affect the animals that live there and things like that. Desserts, caves, the Arctic, oceans. Pretty much everything about the planet. It's really fascinating and now I have some new useless but interesting facts in my head. Let's talk about Planet Earth. Or the planet.
High school mascots. My high school mascot was a Colt. That's dumb. I always hated being a Cottonwood Colt. Was that the only mascot left that started with a "C"? I guess it could have been worse- I could have been a Cottonwood Cow. What was your mascot? Let's talk about high school mascots.
Value menus at fast food places. I hardly order from the value menus (I'm talking about things like that dollar menu at McDonald's and the like). But realistically, is the value menu food much worse than the rest of the menu? Like you can get a spicy chicken sandwich on the dollar menu, OR you can get a grilled chicken sandwich for full price. A little bit of a size difference and taste difference, but enough to spend an extra $3 on? I will, from now on, chastize myself for not ordering from the slightly less blase value menu food. Thoughts? Let's talk about value menus.
I'll stop for now as the above should give us plenty to talk about. For now, let's have a change of subject.
