Weekends July 12, 2009

I think I might be the worst person in the world when it comes to taking advantage of my weekends.  I look forward to them all week and think about all of the possibilities of what I could do.  And then it gets here… I can never make a decision about what to do. With all of the options for outdoor activities in Utah, you wouldn’t think that there would ever be a moment without something to do.

I am turning into an old lady.  I bet I have spent a couple hours with my plants and making sure they are watered, fed, and getting the right amount of sun.  (Though, I did successfully killed my calla lilies…I tried everything and could not save them.)  I read most of a book Friday night and yesterday.  I am well into my second book of the weekend.  I have knitted a little bit too.  I have cooked Sunday dinner and am debating on whether or not I want to make some banana bread (I won’t forget the bananas this time).  Oh and I don’t want to forget my afternoon naps…those are quite exciting.  My big adventure this weekend was a trip down the street for a cinnamon crunch bagel and then an unsuccessful visit to the outlet mall.

I guess I’m just going to have to start being a better weekend planner.

adsSometimes I wonder how the advertisements are selected for a particular site.  I know there are keywords and so forth but what was it in my Facebook profile that attracted modest bridal gowns, utah breast augmentation, and electrifying my knitting??  (See the left ads copied from my Facebook)

ads2To the best of my knowledge I haven’t made reference to myself getting married or any surgical work done….I probably have mentioned knitting as a hobby somewhere along the lines.  After all I do enjoy that one.  But, I really do wonder where the other two came from.

The next page I clicked on brought the ads to the right up. Custom inflatables?? Aqua Zone RNGD??  Thank you Facebook…before you, I was complete oblivious to my dire need for an inflatable creation.

And again with the Utah weddings being pushed.  Even if I were in the market for wedding stuff right now, I’m not sure I’m the right audience for a ‘Utah’ wedding.

I guess when all is said and done, I’m just frustrated.  It took me a long time to give into Facebook and its devilish way of stealing productive time away from me.  Now I’m just sick of it telling me that I need to get married….But on the positive side, when I do decide to have a wedding, I’ll know where to get a custom inflatable for my event.

Utah Drivers – I wish I had a bumper car…. May 15, 2009

UGH!!!  Bad drivers once again start my day off just right.  I know every state has its share of bad drivers but I have concluded as of this morning that Utah is definitely the worst…And I’ve driven in quite a few other states to compare.

This insane lady changed lanes NINE times this morning over  a stretch of about 500 yards.  One of those times was nearly into the side of me at which point I ever so politely used my horn to remind/alert her to my presence and she got angry…I’ve never wished for bumper cars so much because I wanted to ram her into a phone pole (and that’s putting it quite mildly).

I’m wondering why some people can’t just be courteous drivers.  Apparently it’s a lot harder to do than I think it should be.  A few things to start with that would help…

  • Turn signals – convenient how they signal to others that you intend to turn in the near future….otherwise, you’re just slowing down in a random spot.
  • Move entirely into a turn lane if it is available.  Otherwise you are just blocking traffic.
  • DO NOT TAILGATE.  Especially when someone is going ten miles over the speed limit in the right lane.  There are two other lanes to use for passing.  Need I say more?

That’s all in my driving rant today….To the woman in the white Mitsubishi eclipse convertible parked in front of the building next to us…YOU ARE THE WORST DRIVER I AVE SEEN IN A LONG LONG TIME!!

For all of you in Utah, come into Goldsmith Co. Jewelers by Saturday for a free strand of pearls.  They are really nice and there are no strings attached.  Just print out this coupon and bring it in before Saturday, May 9.

They have been in Provo for 38 years – owned by the same family.  They are a great local company and really care about their customers.  I have really enjoyed working with them and I think you will, too so if you get a chance, go check them out.

The Spring Dine-O-Round is here!  I love to eat as you know and I’m excited to hear that 30 local restaurants in down town Salt Lake are offering 30 nights of dinners for $30 (some of the restaurants are $15).  Each of the restaurants are offering a special three course meal throughout the month.  Go out there and try a local restaurant!  Or if $15/$30 is too much, some of them are offering a $10 two course lunch as an option as well.

I for one am going to take full advantage of these offerings and try some places I’ve wanted to for quite a while…and maybe visit a few that I already know I enjoy.
