Am I The Only One?

Am I the only person who is afraid of this happening? Okay, so I’m eating french fries from Wendy’s, McDonalds or Burger King without looking and I’ll even grab handfuls at a time to eat them quicker… well, I have this fear that one day, I’ll be eating my french fries as I do and I’ll grab up one of those tiny salt packets with my fries and eat it. I know it’s a weird fear and it’s never actually happened yet (that I know of). Also, if it did happen, would I notice? I’d hope I would but, what if it blended in with the taste of the fries?

Has this happened to anyone else or am I the only one with saltpackiphobia. Just a thought.

Are You An Elitist?

I learned a new word today that I’ve never heard before. Elitist. What is an elitist? An elitist is someone who feels that they have enough knowledge or skill at something to belong to a special group of people for that particular subject. Elitist’s usually think they’re better than everyone else and looked upon as arrogant… whatever. The reason I talk about this today is because of a conversation I was having with a co-worker. Here’s how it all went down:

So my co-worker Matt and I were talking about the word “telephone”. I was saying how it’s weird that it seems like nobody uses the word “telephone” anymore… instead we say “phone” or “cell”. During our conversation, I told Matt that I just call it “my iPhone” and just as I said that, another co-worker (Clay) said “That’s because you’re an elitist”. Hmm… am I? I returned to my desk and looked up the word “Elitist” and soon realized… yeah… I guess I would consider myself a “Mac Elitist”. The Mac has been a huge part of my life for a huge part of my life and I can honestly say, I am obsessed. Anyone who knows me can probably see this too. I am a huge Apple geek and I’m glad. I don’t just “like” Apple stuff… I live it, I learn it, I can’t help it… I’m hooked… and I’ve been that way for 12 years. So yeah, I’m probably an elitist.

Are you an elitist about anything?

Everyone’s “Guy”

So, I was driving around the other day thinking about all my “guys.” You know what I’m talking about. Your “guy.” Like when someone needs something, anything, from a lawnmower to a sentator, someone always says “Hey, I got a guy that does lawnmowing,” or “Yo, I know a guy that’s a senator.” Either way, everyone has a “guy.” I have “guys.” For example, if I wanted to build a house, I would need a building inspector, electrician, plumber, concrete men, landscapers, framers, siders, contractors. I have a “guy” for each one of these. I just love listening to stories and when someone says “Hey, I got a guy for that,” I just laugh to myself, and you will too. Also, I feel like I have more “guys” then the average individual. What kind of guys do you have? Think about it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why does your logo say nochocolatemilk.com but when I try to go there, I’m taken to a Google page?

A: We’re in the process of transferring our domain nochocolatemik.com to our wordpress page, but due to our domain host’s policy, we have to wait. It’s coming, don’t worry.

Update: I fixed the logo so it only reads “nochocolatemilk”. I will put the .com back on once we get our domain forwarded. Stay tuned!

 

Q: I’m on an iPhone and I can’t click the links at the top of the page that say “about” or “quickies”.

A: This is a bug with the wordpress theme we’re using. I have fixed the problem by providing links to those pages on the right side. If you’re using an iPhone and you wanna access a different page, please use the links on the side. Thank you.

 

Q: Why is the sky blue?

A: It’s not. Your eyes are messed up, man!

Olive Garden

Olive Garden… more Italian than you think.

So, about a month ago, my girlfriend and I decided to eat at Olive Garden. For an appetizer we ordered a salad. Before the waiter left I asked him what kind of salad dressings he had. He replied with the following list: “Italian”. I paused for a second and said “Okay, I’ll have italian.” As he left the table, my girlfriend laughed at my decision. I guess Olive Garden is more Italian than I ever thought.

As a side note, they didn’t even say “Creamy Italian”.

Making New Friends

So I was watching a Wal-Mart commercial last night and it was about this mom who couldn’t go to school with her daughter on the first day of school, thus making it awkward for the new girl to make some new friends. Finally, she asked this group of girls to sit at her table and they accepted her as one of their own, and now they’ll be friends forever. That got me thinking, when we were in school, we chose who we were going to be friends with for the rest of eternity. We don’t have the option of finding out about every before we befriend them. We kinda just choose the first group that shows any interest in us, and alas, were friends.

So I got to thinking about it long and hard last night, and after about 5 years with my “regular” friends, I wanted some change. There were other people that I showed some interest in, but would they accept me? What would my other friends think? What if they accepted me for a while, but then I wanted out. Could I still go back and be friends with my old group? So many questions, so little time.

So then I was thinking, on the first day of school, they should do like some kind of mock election. Everyone could write down they likes and interests on an index card, and the new kids could kind of choose who they want to befriend. They would have a “lame duck” period, where if the person you choose doesn’t meet your expectations, you can swap for someone else. This gives all the power to the new kid and he/she doesn’t have to be thrown into the first group that accepts them. Now on the other hand, the group that the new kid chooses can also “impeach” him from their clique if hes not fitting in.

Now, if the new kid is a jock or a cheerleader, then they will already have friends. There is no choosing new friends for them, because that will just take away from the “regulars” that don’t already have preset group made for them. Now, as for the geeks, they are geeks by choice and they don’t have to be. You can still choose this group if you enjoy the same things geeks enjoy, but you don’t have to be labeled a geek. If you choose this group, we are leaving it up to you to make this new group of your non geeky.

So, I think I covered most people. So please tell me what you think about my new idea of friends!

Thanks

iPhone Fixes a Flat Tire

Tonight on the way to my girlfriend Sarah’s house, we saw a man standing on the side of the road waving his flashlight at us. Being good people, we pulled over. The man explained to us that he has a flat tire and was on the phone with AAA. He had no idea where he was so he asked us for some info. Without blinking an eye, I pulled out my iPhone and opened the Maps application and used the location features to find out where we were. What really made me smile is when he told the lady on the phone that a gentleman showed up with an iPhone and has the Google Map pulled up. He then thanked us and we went on our way. It’s amazing how much power the iPhone has. It never ceases to amaze me. I have to wonder if he’ll get an iPhone soon… hehe.
