Things I Probably Should Stop Doing

Tuesday 4th December 2007

1. Bad Sleeping patterns.
So, so messed up at the moment.

2. Scratching…
…my eczema.

3. Air drumming.
It doesnt look good.

4. Air drumming in the car.
And it’s not safe, either.

5. Leaving my washing till the last minute.
I have a heap of stuff I need to wash now but I’m probably gonna have to do 2 loads, cos it probably won’t fit in one. And I probably won’t have space to dry it all. Crap, I just remembered meant to do that today, actually. Oh well.

Wow, I bet you REALLY wanted to know that…

6. Boring people by talking about racing.
Heh: I can see you’re bored, but I still keep talking about it.

7. Making bad jokes.
Sometimes, I say things, and I can see people start to hate me – dodgy puns especially have this effect. It’s a wonderful achievement.

As an aside, there’s a slim subset of the population who find those sort of jokes amusing. These are the best type of people, I feel.

8. Speaking without thinking.
I sometimes swear too much without thinking. I tend to throw around (friendly!) insults a lot. I’m somewhat opinionated, and throw my opinion around a lot. This behaviour can offend some people. These people are the worst type of people, I feel.

9. Your Mom.
I’m joking…

…she pays too well for me to seriously consider stopping.(This probably comes under No. 7)

10. Procrastination.
Speaking of which, I need to get back to a lab report…

(of these, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 dont need to change. Only 1,2,5 and 10 do.)

Mundane post, sorry.

As an aside, don’t you hate it when someone says something to you, and a few hours later you come up with a brilliantly witty response? I did that the other day – I was lying in bed and this perfect one-liner just flashed into my mind. I was amused and annoyed by myself in equal quantities. Oh well.

Oh, I do almost all of those things.

Apart from the scratching and the boring, boring, boring racing. Seriously, nobody cares.

Oh, and I do good jokes. And I hate the good one liner effect!

F1 is one of the most watched sports in the world. Add in all the other international racing (eg WRC, GT, Le Mans, WTCC, Champcar), the national series (BTCC, Nascar, British GT), and club level motorsport, and I think it’s fair to say that people care. HAH!

The one thing worse than retrospective awesome one-liners is hypothetical awesome one-liners because you catch yourself trying to engineer situations in which they can be used!

For me, it’s…

– Number 7. Especially bad Maths jokes, when nobody else in the room/house even does Maths so they have to be explained, thereby losing any shred of humour they once contained and making me look even more sad.

– Number 8. I try to be honest. I have a friend who comes to me after band performances to check whether he was singing in tune! Although on the up-side, when I tell him that he was amazing at least he knows I mean it!

– And yes, Number 10! The packing’s going well…
