structural integrity

… All in all you’re just another brick in the wall …

I don’t know who the “genius” is that came up with Microsoft’s new advertising slogan, but I’d like to ask them: if we have a “life without walls”, why would we ever need windows?

P.S. Mr Seinfeld, please stay away from the Microsoft advertising people from this point on. I know you probably got paid a bunch of cash for those two ads, but they were about as funny as a bout of groin chafing.

hirsute? you beaut!

… say can you see … my eyes if you can … then my hair’s too short …

Do the guys on the hair restoration ads really believe that their new crops of follicles actually look real?  Some look like shag carpet, some look like farm forests (if you’ve ever seen a paper farm, with all the trees growing in lines, you’ll know what I mean), some look like ferrets crawled up the guys back and settled in on their cranium.  Regardless of their form, it must be said that almost all look ridiculous.

There are also seemingly numerous companies all claiming to be the “only” proven way to restore natural hair.  Yes, I know, I watch too much TV!  It’s crazy though — I thought that fact-checking was supposed to be done on commercials before they were allowed to be aired.

It’s a good thing that I have plenty of my own hair, or I might be tempted to try one of these out, so my head could make people point and laugh.  Oh, hang on, people do that already, and I didn’t even have to spray-paint my bald spot!

escalator etiquette

… feel my head touch my face … two steps back you’re in my space …

When you get on an escalator, can you stand on the step right behind someone or do you have to leave an empty step?

If you stand on the step right behind them, are you tailgating? Are you sending a message to them, asking them to move to the side so that you can pass? Are you just being rude? If they don’t move, are they being rude?

evasive cereal bits

… food, glorious food … what wouldn’t we give for … that extra bit more …

I was contemplating my bowl of Special K the other morning, but I don’t think I could have put it any better than Willo.

evasive cereal bits..
why is it that when there are only a few more flakes swimming around in the milk, they can be so tricky to get on the spoon? it’s like all of a sudden they TRY to dodge it.. “oh shit, here it comes! Run to the other side of the bowl – quick!”
