3,379: Ten unconnected thoughts

with one comment

1. Funny how we have, as a (western) society, somehow all ended up having blue jeans. You walk around your town and there’s never a moment when you can’t see people wearing blue jeans.

2. Whenever I walk by people in malls and airports with their little stands offering credit cards, they never ever ask me. Never have done. Not never, but it’s rare enough for it to be a shock if it does happen.

3. When we go to the cinema or watch a DVD or Netflix, if it’s an animated movie, they should give you a sheet or an on-screen subtitle option, to quickly let you know who the voice actor is so you don’t spend the whole film distracted, wondering where you recognise that voice from.

4. I once heard someone in a pub in London say the words “agent provocateur” as “agent prov-occur.” I like that.

5. Fish tacos: the grown-up alternative to fish finger sandwiches.

6. I will never ever get sick of John and Yoko’s Christmas song. It’s beautiful. And I will never be not annoyed when people make tedious, possibly-sexist, possibly-racist jokes about Yoko.

7. The smell of a delivered or take out pizza, that combination of the pizza itself and warm, slightly steamy cardboard. Mmmm.

8. Pancho Tocino, the Mexican Francis Bacon.

9. I would like to see a big sad book full of photographs of the unread awards speeches/notes written by nominated actors who didn’t win.

10. I have this Pavlovian need to wee when I brush my teeth before bed. Most days, I don’t think I need a wee when I go to brush my teeth, but as soon as I start a-brushin’, there it is, my bladder yelling at me: while we’re here, dude.

The song in my head when I woke up this morning
Mas Que Nada by Sergio Mendes feat. Black Eyed Peas.

  1. I try to be open minded about it to the extent that I think about it at all, but takes an awful lot of good stuff to blot out stains like this sort of thing: https://youtu.be/h9kgu71d81U?t=1m14s
