Bullet Thoughts // 10.29.08

  • Greg Oden, the savior of the Portland Trailblazers, finally debuts on the NBA one year after P-Town acquired him.  As you may or may not know, Oden sat out his first year as an NBA player due to a knee injury acquired during a pre-season practice game.  So, here we are, one year later, when he finally “debuts” at the Blazers/Laker game on Monday, and he gets injured again!  And now he’s out for at least four weeks!  His management is adamant that they’re behind Oden all the way, but many a Blazer fan are tired of him.  Hmm, ODEN spelled differently is DONE.  I’m so clever.
  • English is my second language, and when I’m not paying attention, I would make the silliest grammatical errors.  Take for instance when someone says “Thank you” to me.  I may have it in my head to say “No problem,” but then decide that’s too casual, and aim to say “You’re welcome” instead.  But, I would get things mixed up in my head and end up saying “You’re problem” or “No welcome,” neither of which is an appropriate response and certainly sends all the wrong messages.
  • I’ve recently set a new ‘best mile’ as recorded by Nike+.  This morning, I ran a mile at a 7:44 pace.  You may recall that I posted quite a while back having run a best mile at an 8:03 pace back then.  I’m quite happy about this development. 🙂
  • Adults who hurt children are the biggest monsters of all.
  • I realized today that I hadn’t had a Dorito in three months.  This is quite bizarre to me, given how much I used to enjoy that snack.  My love affair with the nacho cheese goodness began in 1980.  I remember achieving such a euphoric state whenever I would open a bag.  (In fact, there was a time when I could eat a whole family-size bag by myself!)  I’m not sure what it is about the combination of textures and taste that used to make Doritos so irresistable to me.  Nowadays, I can stare at a bowl of it, and walk away.  The craving is gone.  I’m certain I’ll eat another Dorito at one point or another, and I wonder what that next bite would be like.
  • I hate having to wear glasses and detest not being able to wear contacts due to my allergies.  And I secretly wish my vision was so messed up that I would finally qualify for LASIK.  (Yes, I’d asked two optometrists so far and both have said that my vision is not severe enough to warrant the procedure.)  But, alas, that surgery is not in the cards for me yet.  And, maybe that’s for the better.  The thought of having a laser on my eyeball frightens me.
