1) This week I learned that Dr. Pepper, 7-up, and A&W Root Beer are owned by Cadbury Schweppes plc, a British candy company. That’s quite sad, really…I totally thought they were owned by Americans.
2) I need new music.
In an ‘On-Demand’ iPod World, Something’s Gotta Give
I don’t have a trendy iPod (instead preferring to use an iRiver, which IMO, is actually better) but I’ve noticed that the problem associated with using an MP3 player is that my music collection tends to stagnate. I used to listen to the radio a lot when I lived in Palm Desert, but here it’s mainly MP3s, and I haven’t been keeping up with the latest music. A few weeks ago Rehan gave me his radio (first of us to move out of Bankside, lucky him) and I’ve been listening to it a lot lately in an effort to actually hear some new bands. So if your musical tastes are anything like mine, check out these guys (some are British, not sure if they are getting airtime in the U.S.):
3) Been there, done that: Up at Tito’s Villa – Savoring the splendor of Montenegro before time — and money — catch up with it.
“We are like so ahead of the Times…” – Crystal
4) Do we still do this in America?
“In an effort to crack down on yobbish behavior, authorities are considering requiring juvenile offenders to wear uniforms while completing their community service. In the U.S., they make them wear orange suits and break rocks.” – British guy on the radio.
We still make prisoners break rocks? What is the point of that?
5) Um, is it May?
This weather is horrible…mid 50s…uh, spring, where are you? Nevertheless, we still had the RPSS BBQ at Olga’s place:
Check out that view…right on the Thames. I live right across the river. See those cranes? Yeah, major construction project going on right outside my door…it’s great, especially when they start loading the trucks at 7:30am.
6) My Onion horoscope:
“You’ll be pressured to resign as chairman of the board of directors when it comes to light that you are, in fact, absolutely terrible at sitting at the head of really long tables.”
7) I miss processed nacho cheese.
Can someone please go to CostCo and pick me up a five gallon bucket of Tostito’s Salsa con Queso? Thanks.
8) Star Wars : I don’t care
9) OMG two weeks until my first final…AHHHHHHHHH! Off to read…
