it’s always like this

i’m exhausted

so it’s good ‘ol list time

  • i threw 2 necklaces in my pocket when i was packing last week so i wouldn’t lose them.  sure enough the next time i checked they were gone.  one was what S gave me for christmas last year and i knew that one could be replaced so i concentrated on searching everywhere for the other one, the one my mom gave me 10+ years ago that i’ve worn almost every single day since.  M found one in the floor of the car… it was the one S gave me.  i still haven’t found the other one.  it makes me sick to my stomach.
  • i met NKOTB a few days ago.  very surprisingly Joey seemed to be the most normal and ended up being my favorite.  Donnie is the creepiest man i’ve ever encountered (and i’ve attracted men of all kinds).
  • taking the train was very pleasant the entire 8hr trip up to CT.  unfortunately the trip back was not so nice.  not only was the train packed but the people sitting around me from NYC to DC were dreadful.
  • why is it that once you hear an annoying noise it drowns out every other sound around you?  the girl behind me was smacking her gum… you know, she wasn’t chewing it like a normal person but more so just making as much noise as she could while chewing, with her mouth as open as possible i assumed.  after the first 2 minutes that was all i could hear… i wanted to cry… or turn around and knock the gum out of her mouth.
  • when you’re in close quarters such as a train most people would have the decency to turn their cell phone ring volume down, not the girl a couple rows back.  i could have screamed every time it rang… and it rang often!
  • again, in close quarters you need to have some courtesy.  if you’re going to talk on your phone keep it quiet.  and if you’re going to speak at full volume plus some then at least do it in english so i can follow along because the only thing worse than having to listen to your ENTIRE phone conversation is having to listen to it in another language!
  • i’m not much for conversation right now so i’ll leave you with a picture i took on the way down to the game last week… the blue ridge mtns really are the most beautiful place in the peak of autumn! (don’t mind the shade, i took them through the tinted car window)

  2. I love that one random green mountain in the middle of all the multi-colored ones…kind of reminds me of Happy Valley too!

  3. I completely understand your train woes. When I was commuting to NYC from CT via MetroNorth everyday, the peace and quiet of all the business people either reading, working or napping made the ride somewhat bearable. And then you would get the random group of tourists every now and then who didn’t understand the ‘commuter train rules’ and talked loudly the whole time. And then your nice, quiet Thursday evening train sounded like one on a Saturday afternoon.

    The picture is beautiful – I’m hoping to get to the mountains next year!

  4. This is a really gorgeous photo. Love it.

    But onto the train … I HATE how people just assume that, despite closed spaces, no one is bothered by them! Like they’re an island, and the world doesn’t notice. I want to smack them. I feel like I’m lots more aware of my surroundings than most people, and I often go out of my way to be sure I’m not causing any inconveniences. It really frustrates me that not everyone has that instinct.

    Hope your week’s going better : )
