Aww, that's pretty cool.

Here's something I don't get about myself. There is a convention in faucetry that red indicates hot water and blue indicates cold water. For the vast, vast majority of people, this is completely intuitive. Not for me. I always think red indicates cold water and blue indicates hot water. (Just now in the hotel I drank some hot water because of that misinterpretation. Which I have made a thousand times.)

Common pronunciation in Australia.

I hardly ever watch tv, but it's hard to avoid in the airport and in the hotel. I am rediscovering that cable news is almost indescribably inane. I don't get when anyone watches it other than the friends and family of the anchors.

hipsters. pbr. busch light. football. golf. college education (yes, I have one and it proves useless so far). flaming liberals. flaming conservatives. why there is a god damn toll booth in every part of my city. why the tolls cost $.70 exactly. Jersey Shore. Why I can only move 3.2 miles in 45 minutes in DC traffic on a Friday when there's 4 lanes + an hov.

ok, so I went to a museum exhibit, full of people, and there are people with their friends there chatting about all sorts of shit. standing in the fucking ailes, making it difficult for people to get around and see the shit, and talking, like they were in a fucking coffee shop. what the fuck is with that?
