On top of trying to learn Photoshop properly, reading that big pile of books, and learning how to do the CSS stuff I need to do to make FFF an über-fantastic user experience; on top of all that, I really really want to learn how to use Adobe’s other swanky program, Illustrator. I’ve tried several times before but never get past the basics before I get annoyed with it. This is my first effort on my new learning path. I call him Mucky Mouse.
Anyway, some random stuff.
Why, on TV show title sequences, do they get specific with certain actors. Why does it say Jerry Seinfeld … Julia Louis-Dreyfus … Michael Richards … and Jason Alexander as George. Why does Jason Alexander get an as George after his name?
Does a Baby On Board sticker really make people drive more carefully behind the car with the sticker? And why does a baby deserve more consideration that a normal human? I want those stickers to be banned and replaced with Human On Board.
I wonder how much crisp grease (I mean chips, America) ends up along the seams of our trousers. After eating a few, I always swish my fingers quickly up and down the edge of my trousers to clean them. Am I doing serious harm to my wardrobe?
Could record companies please cut down on the amount of packaging on CDs? There was a time when a jewel case was enough. Now everything’s got a cardboard slip case around it, which always end up getting crushed in my pile of CDs, and that bloody polythene around it that is perculiarly annoying.
And I wonder how many tiny T-shaped bits of plastic end up lost in carpets. I’m talking about those tiny plastic tags that attach the price tag to a shirt that you have to cut off. Those things bug me.
Finally, here’s a tip: when making a tuna sandwich, add a touch of mustard. It really does make your sandwich sparkle with flavour.
God, the stuff that I need to empty my brain of is very very inane…
