I need a glow stick

Oy - my hairdresser blasts techno music. By the time I leave there my head is spinning. Although I guess that makes it easier for her to cut the hair.

Amazon fail

Amazon does that "We think you might like..." thing where it analyzes something you bought and tries to get you to buy something similar. Sometimes it works, sometimes it's just obnoxious.

A few weeks ago I got an Ella Fitzgerald CD box set, "12 Nights in Hollywood." Today the friendly folks at Amazon suggested I get the 2-disc, "The Best of 12 Nights in Hollywood."

Ha ha.

Bastards, though.

Teeth paranoia

Did you ever brush your teeth after you've being out drinking, eating, then realize, "Oh, I actually brushed them 40 minutes ago when I first got home."

Of course, then I paranoidally wonder if doing that is somehow damaging to my teeth.

Why am I such a nice guy?

So I get on the elevator today in my building and this woman gets on with her kid, maybe 5 years old, and he starts saying, "Go away, go away." And I suddenly realize he's talking to me.

And the woman says, "Oh, no sweety, we don't say that to people, this is not your private elevator."

Then she adds, "We say that to bees or flies, we say, 'Go away, fly, buzz, go away.'"

So the brat starts saying, "Go away, fly, buzz."

And now she's embarrassed and says, "I'm sorry, he thinks everything is his."

I give a wan smile, clearly not humored, and my floor comes and I get out, and I hear her saying. "No, he's not a fly, he's our neighbor."

Of course, I wanted to snarl in the elevator, "I'm not a fly but you ARE a fucking cockroach and you should be crushed."

He would have been in tears.

It would have been great.

But she seemed genuinely embarrassed so I didn't.

But still.

Who are these people who raise these obnoxious kids?
