Wednesday Thoughts

My weekly jumble of mostly unrelated thoughts.

I sometimes refer to the year 2010 as 0-10 which I know is not correct. I got used to putting an 0 in front of the number and I can't stop.

Speaking of dates, tomorrow is April Fools Day. Are you planning any pranks? This may surprise you, but I'm not a big fan of pranks. Or rather, I'm not very good at them. I absolutely can't keep a straight face and it ends up being much too much work. (Maybe by saying that, I'm just trying to throw you off the scent.)

So, a guy friend of mine recently told me that I should write a blog post explaining women, and what we want. For obvious reasons, this is an impossible task. But I want to throw this out there: to my male readers, if you have questions about women, leave a comment and I'll do a post at some point answering your questions! This could be fun.

And lastly, last week a location director visited my office building. He said they will be filming a movie across the street from our building in a couple months and might want to use our building for part of it. The movie stars Pierce Brosnan (and the location director said we will probably see him). Although it also stars some equally famous co-stars, I went temporarily deaf after he said Pierce Brosnan. Pierce Brosnan was my first celebrity crush when I was a kid - I thought he was sooo handsome when I saw him on Remington Steele (which I was not allowed to watch but managed to catch glimpses of). Who was your first celebrity crush?

Happy Wednesday.

I HATE PRANKS. I don't think there's anything funny about having to scoop peanut butter off my handle of my bathroom carrier thing. (Not that someone did that to me once or anything.)

When I was in high school I had a friend with shin splints. It gave him a lot of grief and I was always telling him to put ice his legs to ease the pain.

One day he's not in school. There's a big mystery about it but I finally track down one of his friends who reluctantly tells me that he's in the hospital. Apparently his shin splints have gotten really bad and now he's got bone cancer on his femurs. The doctors are thinking about amputating.

Concerned, I called his brother's cellphone and he tells me that the doctors can't understand why it happened. They think he had been putting ice on his legs, which caused the marrow in his bones to expand slightly and the cracks got infected with carcinogens.

At this point they were wheeling my friend into the operating room to try to save his legs, or amputate them. I'm feeling really bad because I was the one who was always telling him to put ice on his legs.

He's not under yet so I ask if I can talk to him..they put him on the phone and he says

"Hey, McKenna...April Fool's"

Yeah..turns out it was the 1st of April.

McKenna said...

oh yeah...I almost forgot: Indiana Jones...I mean Harrison Ford!

Robert said...

I watched Remington Steele. Apparently not for the same reason. Why were you not allowed to watch it? Your mom must not have approved of the crush.

I have to say that Pierce Brosnan is one cool dude. Although I never seen Remington Steele I do like The Thomas Crown Affair, one of my favorites.

My first celebrity crush was Nicole Kidman in Days of Thunder.

Tom Cruise. Stop judging me.

When I was in high school, I was assigned to the lunch period with about 3 girls in our grade, and all the boys. So, I was forced to sit with all boys. They must have corrupted my sweet little mind, because one day I tried a little prank. I poured my left over chocolate milk into my half-empty can of Sprite. Little did I know that Sprite and milk curdle when mixed together. I asked this guy if he wanted the rest of my Sprite. I expected him to take one sip and spit it out. Instead, he grabbed the can and chugged it. He immediately got sick to his stomach, and ran to the bathroom to throw up. I still feel TERRIBLE about it.

But I still love a good prank.

Pierce looks like Zac Efron in that picture.

Sarah said...

First celeb crush...Keanu Reeves! (From Point Break/Speed, NOT from the Excellent Adventure). :)

And, I'm hoping for no pranks...I'm on the lookout!

Katherine said...

My pranks always seem to get foiled. Like the time when I switched around all of the furniture on the 1st floor (recliners at the kitchen table, etc) and Mom woke up in the middle of the night and, confused, put it all back before anyone else go to appreciate the hilarity of the prank. Sigh.

I think my first really big celebrity crushes were on the New Kids on the Block. Specifically Donny and Jordan. Double sigh.

Guys, where are the questions??

I'll do sweet pranks like putting jello in a cup w/ a straw to look like kool-aid instead. But that's as far as I go.

Tracie said...

I"m not good with pranks at all.

My first celebrity crush.....Richard Dean Anderson...from MacGyver.

Robert said...

Oh, right. There was a request for guys to ask questions. Unfortunately, we don't have good memories so by the time we finish reading about the crush on Pierce Brosnan (and while trying to forget the crush on Pierce at the same time) we forget to comment.

Suggestion #1: What are your girls top 3 favorite excuses to give a guy for not going on a date? And how do you think that excuse is to be interpreted. Then guys can comment on what they think that excuse means. lol. Washing your hair should not be in the top 3!

Question for women?

Hrmm... There seems to be a huge disparity between what women say they want in a guy (funny, caring, smart, testimony, whatever) and what they actually seem drawn to (power/money, attractiveness).

Is this something girls are aware of on some level and if so, how do they reconcile it? Not trying to sound bitter or accusatory, girls are genetically wired to be attracted to power/money (stability in a potential mate) and attractiveness (means he'll father healthy offspring). I don't hold that against you at all. I just wonder... why the staunch denial?

Elizabeth Downie said...

McKenna - that is HILARIOUS!!! I would never be able to pull something like that off.

And Kathy, suuuuuuuure you didn't know it curdled.

Datin'Kait said...

Elizabeth: Help these men! They need it!

To Drake:

Women want a guy with a testimony, but don't be hatin' if we don't want to be hungry, destitute wives worrying all the time about how to feed our poor, hungry, destitute children. The earner in a couple is called a breadwinner for a reason.

Remington Steele is one of my all time favorite shows!!
