Thoughts

Tuesday, August 29, 2006

1. The funniest thing I saw last weekend in the Solomons: I was at the Tiki Bar with my little cousin (he's 21), and there was a really hott, VERY built diesel-like guy. Normally I would have checked him out- if I'd noticed him. Well, he was REALLY hard to miss. He was about 6'6, and probably at least 250 pounds of muscle. Wearing a black t-shirt that said "that which does not kill me better run," a cowboy hat, black combat boots with black and red striped socks sticking out, a fanny pack and ....you ready for this?....... a black and red kilt. Never have I been more disappointed in myself for not having my camera on me. Oh, and he was straight. When I told my cousin (who was laughing his ass off at the guy) that I'd "hit that," he observed that all it would take is both of us lifting our skirts. cute.

2. I think my OCD has taken a turn for the worst. My aversion to body hair is getting a little out of control. So much so that I have been considering Nair-ing my arms. Let me clarify- I have very fine, very light blonde (almost invisible) hair. But for some reason, even that's bugging me. Now, I know that my personal grooming habits are already extensive (to achieve that dolphin-like hairlessness); and I also know that if I start Nair-ing my arms, it's something I will not be able to stop doing; but for some reason, I have been considering it a lot.

3. The only problem with comments from non-bloggers is that if you like their opinions, you have no way of reading more or contacting them. For instance, "Dave in DC" always writes thoughtful comments and would love to read more from him. Unfortunately, I have no way of contacting him and no blog to read.

4. To the cop on the motorcycle that was next to me at the Elden St/Herndon Pkwy intersection today- thanks for having a sense of humor about me yelling "move, bitch" to the slow cow in front of me that was ignoring the light-change. Instead of stopping me for "aggressive driving," you laughed. Although, you were pretty hott, and I wouldn't have minded being searched.

5. Does anyone in Virginia know what this sign means?

because I think a lot of you think it means "race to the end of the merge lane, cut someone off, then give them a dirty look because THEY are supposed to pause to let YOU in."

as a native New Yorker one thing i've realized since moving to VA is that people born in this state don't know how to drive.

In Michigan they are horrible for tailgating and not using blinkers. In Washington State they are horrible for not allowing people to merge.
It depends on where you live what horrible driving habits you will notice.
Stay away from the Nair. The hair may possibly grow back darker and I know that would scar you for life.

I hear you on the hair thing but let it grow. I love that I have hairy arms bc no one ever notices until I point it out bc mine is super fine and blonde too. :-)PS Most people cannot drive in the DC Area. PERIOD.

I don't have any hair on my arms or legs. Which is good b/c Nair is like acid on me.

I hate the way people in DC drive. That's why I take the Metro as much as possible.

carl- you are correct....my once low blood pressure has gone up quite a bit since moving here.

rachel- in the DC area they do everything wrong. It amazes me.

kassy- I guess I'm lucky that it's fine and pale blonde, but it just bugs me. And I never notice anyone else's, unless they are sporting a shag carpet, so I guess no one ever sees mine.

bigmac- thanks. votes are always appreciated.

kirsten- see...I just know I'd love hairless arms.

bex- no hair? How'd you manage that?

mgc 8/31/2006 07:30:00 PM  

i only allow hair on my ass!

hi

Ashburnite 8/31/2006 08:39:00 PM  

mgc- hey hun!! I've really been missing you!

nicole 9/02/2006 12:02:00 PM  

Just be careful with that arm hair thing or you'll end up with steel wool growing out of your triceps. ;)

I'm completely in agreement on #4. They really DO stare you down AFTER they cut you off. Some NoVA traffic law must state that merging traffic is entitled to make you slam on brakes and cause a multi-car pile-up.

Al Sensu 9/02/2006 05:57:00 PM  

I appreciate the non-bloggers who set up a blogger profile for that exact reason.

Hair - I think society, especially you younger folks, are going to far with the hairless thing. I guess it's a matter of what you're used to because I will admit liking a woman whose pits and legs are shaved, so why stop there. But the smooth porn-worthy genitals thing...scares me.

YIELD - I thought that was an instruction for the women I desire.

allan 9/04/2006 05:46:00 PM  

If only it were limited to YIELD signs. I was sitting in traffic on the Toll road one day and an ambulance -- with sirens wailing -- was trying to get through and no one was willing to move out of its way.
