No special occasion whatsoever. Then again, theres really no special occasion needed for a BBQ. It’s grilling week on the food network. Bobby Flay brought up an interesting point: Human beings seem to have an extra chromosome in their bodies simply for grilling. Now of course it was a play on words but I couldn’t help but wonder what it is about grilling that people love so much. I can’t lie, I love to grill and everything about it. It’s one of the few things I can do easily that makes me really feel like a man haha. It’s one of the few things available to us that make us feel human, especially in an age where technology has overrun the world. Stay thirsty my friends.
It’s not very often you meet people that make you seriously think about your life. For those of you who don’t know I work at an Apple store. I genuinely love my job and the people who I work with. A typical day at the store is like any other retail outlet. You sell stuff and you answer lots of questions..pretty typical. Today I’m happy to say was a change from the normal. A woman walked into the store and approached me. She wanted to purchase an iPad. I thought it was a run of the mill sale. We’ve always been taught to ask lots of questions to best tailor the product to the customer. I simply asked her “so what’s the iPad for”. She responded “I’m doing a social experiment”. Naturally I was curious so I asked her what the experiment was.. “Well, I’m going to take 10 pictures with the iPad and then give it to a friend and let them do the same thing and so on. The idea is using iCloud i’ll be able see all the pictures and what people see as important enough to take a picture of”.
Now this probably sounds really simple but I thought it was pretty awesome. The idea that someone cares enough about someone else to want to know more about their life through pictures is quite unique. Apparently she planned on creating a blog that she would update with all the pictures. I think my only concern with this is what happens if someone suddenly stops taking photos or they lose their iPad. I didn’t ask her because I was pretty floored with her experiment. The odd’s of me ever getting a chance to use said iPad are pretty slim but i’d feel pretty cool if I had the chance to add to the blog.
Things like this help me to remember how great technology is and how it helps people do things pleasantly unimaginable.
So as I sit here in my room waiting for my 48 hours of strep throat quarantine to be over I find myself finding things to do around the house. This morning I had the inspiration to clean my kitchen. Turned out pretty well. Usually the only time our kitchen is clean is the day after the party because were forced to clean. I’m feeling a lot better though. I hate being sick. Think about that statement for a second, “I hate being sick”. Do you think anyone actually wakes up one day and says “thank god I’m sick today!” As great as it may be to take a day off of school or from work, it still sucks. Apparently the strep is going around. Lots of my friends have it. Luckily it only hit me for 2 days. Have you been reading these random news reports about the guy who ate someones face or the woman who ate her baby? Zombie Apocalypse anyone?
My first post couldn’t have come at a better time. Today I learned that Red Mango would be supplying its customers with a brand new flavor coming soon. What is this flavor you ask?…none other than Honey Bagder. Yes, the elusive animal that has graced the YouTube channel for the past year. All of you interested in trying the new flavor can either go for it or not…the honey badger won’t give a fuck.
