---It’s been really easy for me to switch from writing 2011 to 2012 in dates. Just goes to show you how glad I am that year is gone.
---You never realize how much you use a letter until it starts sticking in the keyboard. For the record, I have no idea how that piece of salt got stuck under there.
---I really dislike Starbucks’ coffee, but damn they make good hot chocolate.
---It’s a lot easier to open bananas from the bottom then the stem at the top.
---The corona around the sun is a million degrees (in Celsius of course) hotter than the surface of the sun. That’s right. It gets hotter the further you go from the sun.
---PS. The sun isn’t yellow. Any coloring we perceive is from the light shining through Earth’s atmosphere. Out in space, the sun is boring old white.
---Another mystery of the universe: why do they have courthouses, places where large numbers of people need to be on any given day, with no parking spaces?
---There’s nothing more depressing than finding out there’s a book with the same title and plot point as your own. I thought I was so original.
---Back in high school, there was always a “Senior Prank.” You know, stuff like leaving a For Sale sign on the school’s lawn or releasing greased pigs (yes, that happened). Every graduating class had one. Except mine. Because we were that lazy.
---Canceling Valentine’s Day? Mean, Uzbekistan. Just mean.
---I hate it when I have one of those dreams where I’m late for something and no matter what I do, I can’t get there (usually a class in college, dang it). I’m stressed out enough. I don’t need to be anxious in my sleep, too.
---I read one of the most laughably bad “poems” in all creation. It’s in quotation marks because as a writer, I’m offended by its very existence. In order to write poetry, you have to be able to use words.
---Ever heard of trepanning? If no, don’t click on the link. You’re probably better off not knowing.
And to finish it off, another conversation between me and my mom:
Her: I am watching the worst movie ever.
Me: Plan 9 From Outer Space?
Me: Something on Lifetime?
Her: Yeah, that’s the one. [Pause] I like Cliffhanger.
Yes, she actually admitted that. I’m so ashamed.
