"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
- Lewis Carroll
Too bad the Walrus didn't know about Mrs. 4444's Friday Fragments. She offers a collection of posts talking about many things or as some would say, fragments.
Easily distracted - I didn’t used to be. I had great focus and concentration. I remember focusing on tough math or engineering problems in college. No more. I’m lucky to remember I’m making a sandwich after the toast pops.
Does the following mean I need to workout at a gym?
L.A. Fitness' poll for Body of the Year (I didn’t know they had a Body of the Year poll. Did you? Do they need to pay Playboy royalties for this?)
Winning female - Helen Mirren (funny that the headline didn’t even mention the male winner)
Winning male - David Beckham (I had to read the article for that info)
You know you are getting old when a few of the names on the list are completely unknown to you. Who is Cheryl Cole? (number 5)
One more observation on this - L.A. Fitness, an American company does a poll and most of the top ranked people are British (what's with that).
President Obama turned the big 5-oh this week. He came home to Chicago (which he has not visited very often during his term) for his birthday and I believe his gift wish is campaign contributions. My favorite Chicago Tribune columnist, Mary Schmich, used his birthday as reason to write about life’s odometer clicking off 50. I like the advice she ended with:
One of the gifts of 50 is coming to understand that however old you get, the age that came before will one day seem very young.
There are and always will be life mysteries I don’t understand. I probably over think too often. Here’s one - baby showers needing a theme.
Doesn’t the name of the party - baby shower - just provide you with all the theme you need? Did you notice it contains the word ‘baby’.
Oh and one more point on this subject, weird baby-looking cakes. Really? Does anyone really enjoy cutting up a baby-looking cake? Maybe I could start a new business selling “Bambi” cakes to hunters.
New definition - context - texting from a con man.
Bit of blogger news -
The Original Bean is having beans.
That would be my headline if I were to need one.
Jene has a fine blog and running shoes. However the running stuff and the other stuff (child, life, work, music, stories, prime numbers, the typical stuff) are going to be separated into two blogs. Check out her focused on stuff blog today.
I’m not egotist. But some of my comments pretend to be, especially if they are taken out of context (no not a text from a con). I really didn’t mean your post was less interesting than the toast that just popped up. Damn where is the butter?
