Stuff and Things - Post Ideas that Couldn't Cut It

Sometimes, my brain is so caught up in it's own cleverness that I have trouble telling if my ideas are any good.  Many of them have drafts started for a post before I realize, "Eh, I don't really have that much to say about that."

Here's my too-long-for-Twitter-and-too-short-for-a-blog-post list.

Parting Your Hair on the "Other" Side.

Why is this so hard?  I know it's good to switch up hairstyles every so often, and I was getting paranoid that my hairline was getting higher on the right side, where I part it.  So I decided to start parting on the other side.  Three times.  Because it kept not working.  And it hurts for the first couple days!  What's up with that?!

I Finally Understand Twitter.

I was confused and lost at first.  But now I get it.  You can talk to total strangers and it's not weird!  And you can post a bunch of times in a row without overly annoying people.  AND that whole hashtag thing that I kinda hated, is not what I thought it was.  I feel like Twitter makes better use of hashtags than Facebook at this point.  (Facebook is the only place where I see long, obnoxious strings of hashtags at the end of a post.)

Bathroom Etiquette

I could probably write a whole post about this, but I shouldn't have to.  Just thinking about it makes me feel grumpy, like yesterday (and yes, I did get 10 hours of sleep last night).  So here's a quick list of things you probably should do:
  1. Pick up stuff that you drop on the ground.  C'mon, there's no way you didn't notice that you dropped the extra roll of toilet paper and then it unrolled through all the stalls.
  2. Wipe the seat after you're done if you're a hoverer.  Just, ew.
And here's a couple of things you should not do:
  1. Talk on your phone in the bathroom.  At least give me the illusion of privacy with my bathroom noises!
  2. Smoke, legal or illegal stuff.  I mean, I kind of admire your guts for smoking pot in public, but I hate that smell, and you're being inconsiderate and irresponsible here.  Aren't you at your job right now?

Cursive

Isn't it about time we let it go?  Back in 4th grade, I got put in a remedial writing class, to learn how to properly slant my cursive.  Now, I don't even know how to do letters that aren't in my name.

Perfectly (or Poorly) Timed Movie Quotes

So once upon a time in a past life, I was at a gas station with my then boyfriend.  He was going in to get something for himself and asked if I wanted anything.

"Cranberry juice, please."

"What, are you on your period?"

I was, as well as confused about the correlation between cranberry juice and that time of the month, and unsure by his tone of voice whether I should be offended.  It's ok, I know better now.  Also, it's a slight misquote (from The Departed), but close enough.

I'm actually starting to think I should have saved that last one for a post, but really, I can't think of any other examples!

Do you have any perfectly or poorly timed movie quote stories?  What about blog posts that just could cut it?
