Last night I dreamed that Lady Gaga wanted me to be in one of her music videos. She didn’t want me to wear my covering so I took it off but then I felt guilty. So I put it back on.
The dumb thing would not go on straight.
I just read an article on MSN called, Can You Live On $330 A Week? It is about unemployment benefits. How people struggle so hard to live off of only $330 a week.
Wait, are you kidding me? I’m thinking two weeks wages would easily cover your rent, one week’s wages would more than cover gas and utilities, and you’d be left with over $330 for food and clothes and toothpaste. Where is the difficulty in that?
Maybe if you’re trying to raise a family?
Or eat out every weekend?
Or buy a fancy wedding dress just in case your prince charming shows up?
In other news, I got this from an article about Japan:
If your home was hit by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake, a tsunami, and radiation from a nuclear power plant, you’d be forgiven for not remaining calm. Yet that’s what many Japanese quake victims appear to be doing. People are forming lines outside supermarkets. Life is “particularly orderly,” according to PBS. “Japanese discipline rules despite disaster,” says a columnist for The Philippine Star.
That is just cool. I keep thinking about the guy and his pottery shop. Maybe his stuff won’t get stolen after all, since Japanese have so much integrity and class even in the middle of disaster.
I think I would like to start an airline. Or take over an airline. Or become creative director for an airline. Or something to make flying actually enjoyable. Here are some of my ideas:
- Make things prettier. Like, the icky electric blue blankets they give you could be a soft green. And the white papery pillow covers could have little pink flowers printed on them.
- The flight attendents would all wear classy outfits. Or pretty ones. Like this:
- The menus would be printed on pretty card stock.
- Flight attendants would walk up and down the aisles with tea and coffee pots offering you tea or coffee.
- Instead of getting a generic paper napkin with your meal/drink, you would get a pretty cloth napkin.
- Not only would there be a magazine in the seat-back pocket, there would also be a comic book.
- There could be a magazine thing with excerpts of all the latest and greatest books coming out. Can you imagine what great pr that would be? People would read the beginnings of these books on their flights and be much more likely to buy the book once they got to the next airport.
Just some ideas. Seriously, can’t you just see some little girl saying, “Daddy, let’s fly on that plane with the flowers on the pillows and the comic books in the seat.”
