foiled again!

segway/scooter guy got me again! all week, I've been trying to keep an eye out for him on my way to work, but no luck. then, today, I see that same gleaming helmet fly right by me! this time, though, on a motorcyle - a motorcycle with a handicapped license plate. what? exactly - they make handicapped plates for motorcycles?? am I the only one who thinks there's something wrong with that? anyway, sorry, folks, I tried really hard to get a picture, but I just couldn't catch up to him.

as I have mentioned previously, I like to keep a steady supply of chocolate at my desk. preferably ghirardelli, and preferably dark. I was in desperate need of a refill this week, so I trekked down to the local target, only to find, to my dismay, that they don't carry them! I reluctantly settled for some dove instead. can I just say that their "dark" chocolate tastes like milk chocolate? very very disappointing. furthermore, each wrapper is printed with a "promise". I'm not really sure what the point is, but I don't think I'd call these little messages promises. they're more like commands. I don't think I like being told what to do by a candy wrapper. I'd rather my candy wrapper tell me that I've won a million dollars.

anyway, look what my chocolate had the nerve to tell me yesterday:


so demanding. and I wasn't really sure what the point would be of this exercise, but before I had much time to mull it over, the next piece tells me:


it not only tells me what to do, it tells me how to do it! really, I think I prefer fortune cookies. they always make me feel better.


happy weekend, everyone!

    I love the contradicting commands. Although I have to agree that I don't want my chocolate to tell me what to do...that's just a bit too personal from something that I'm going to eat.

    My favorite fortune of all time said "You like chinese food". Not so much of a fortune really. I can't decide actually if it annoys me that they're being pushy Chinese, or if it's just telling me what I already know.

    And yes, a handicapped motorcycle is sort of weird.

    Lastly, you are the best. Definitely. top

    Why is it wierd to have a handicapped sign on a motorcycle? How is it wierder than a car?

    There are people who need help getting smaller distances where a car isn't practical but they don't want to use a wheelchair. Segways or scooters/motorcycles are perfect for this.

    Spina Bifida is one example where you can't walk long distances. But you can walk shorter ones and have no problem sitting on a bike. top
