Rhino on Ice

February 18, 2006 1 comment

jay on ice.jpgToday I had an opportunity to go ice skating with a bunch of friends. It was only the second time in my life to attempt that and I’ve never owned a pair of roller blades, though I’ve roller bladed on occasion before I have not had any practice at all in the last few years. Needless to say I spent most of my time frequenting the sideboards, smiling embarrassingly at onlookers, assuring parents that I was not a threat to their kids well-being on the ice and picking myself up off the floor.

It was fun doing something new despite feeling like a toddler learning to walk and doing so in a public recreation venue. As my motto goes opportunities are limitless and I try to seize them and learn something new even if I look like a fool till I get the hang of it. I just hope it does not take another 10 years till I get another shot at this, untill then the NHL draft will have to wait.

sex sells what- small.jpg 

The facts are that in marketing sex sells but this firm doesn’t want to appear sexist in any way so they went to all the trouble to accommodate everyone. Thus the ‘for him’ and ‘for her’ ads, isn’t that thoughtful? One thing for sure it is not the clothes that they are selling.

I don’t know what there is about having magnesium in bottled water that would instantly bring visions of a naked girl in a whirlpool come to mind. At least now we have something to blame daydreaming on. It’s in the water.

Loads of Trouble

washing laundry - edit.jpg

This might help inspire kids to wash their own laundry, but maybe even more.

Mother: Johnny! Why are you wearing your robe to breakfast son? Johnny: Oh, mom I’m fresh out of clothes. Mother: I told you yesterday that I was doing a load of light. Johnny: it’s ok, Sally and her friend offered to help me with my laundry. I said they could bring theirs over too. They are coming over after school… you know… to show me how the machine works and stuff… I know you are late for work mom; don’t worry we’ll take care of it.

Mother: Thank you son, such a good boy. I’ll use the extra time to stop over at grandmas; I’ll be back later to cook dinner. There is new Ariel laundry soap in the washroom.

Johnny: Yes I know (thus the inspiration). No mom, thank you. (YES!) (Location: A main road, Croatia)

wife called - edit.jpg

Isn’t it convenient to be able to call from your motel room that you’ll be working late at the office today? Thanks to this great service you can do just that. Just make sure to not have caller recognition on your home phone. (Location: shopping center, Hungary)
