Wading in

It’s hard to blog these days.

I have 12 draft posts. Some have catchy titles like “NBC Olympic FAIL!” but no actual content. Yes, when I think back on the Olympics, I do remember quite a bit of frustration with the stupid NBC network. But I don’t remember any rant worthy issues, so i’m not sure what I was going to write about there. Other drafts have posts like “Taking chances”, indicating I was either feeling emo or had some human relations insights I wanted to share. That draft is particularly frustrating because it has one line: “I took the title of this post from this song <link to Abba’s Take a Chance on Me>”. What! Where was I going with that !? Then there are others where I started writing about places I visited, or things I did, but when I look at them now there’s not enough context for me to finish those original thoughts.

I can’t finish those drafts, but I can’t delete them either.

<I’m thinking. I’m at Oakland airport, waiting at Gate 23, using the free wifi. I love Oakland airport. Each gate has benches where you can plug in gadgets and sit and work on a laptop. It’s extremely civilized. Earlier I purchased a small coffee and a scone for $5 from a Peets outlet here. I finished the scone before I started working on this post. The coffee’s still hot and steaming next to me. mm. It’s fresh. There’s an old man next to me wearing a neck brace, typing away on a laptop. His cell phone just rang. He removed an old style flip phone (what! no smart phone! weird.) from his pocket and started talking to somebody. He has a coffee too. When he takes a sip, he has to tip his whole head and lean way back because the neck brace sits against his chin, preventing him from taking a sip in a normal way. I’m kind of worried he’s going to fall off the stool entirely. I just noticed there’s a hoochie mama in front of me. She’s wearing one of those “crotch dresses” (i.e. a dress that only and barely covers a girl’s crotch), 4 inch leopard print stilettos secured with an ankle strap, and carrying two Louis Vuitton bags. She’s been talking on a cell phone for like the last 20 minutes and taking sips from a Venti Starbucks beverage. Has this girl not heard of texting? I now notice she’s got acrylic nails that look kind of sharp. I don’t think you can text with nails like that. Makes sense now. I wonder if the LV bags are fake. She’s got her legs crossed. >

I’m done thinking.

I guess what I’ll do eventually is publish those drafts in one super-draft blog post.

Also, I’ve concluded that if one is to wear a dress that short, it’s best to keep the legs flat, next to each other. This leg crossing action just ends up revealing even more and making the look outright hoochie.
