Have a Nice Day

Perfunctory- –adjective: Performed merely as a routine duty; hasty and superficial (i.e. Perfunctory courtesy)

About half the things I say on any given day I don't mean. Well okay, I mean them. I just don't really mean them. It's like when you're at funeral for someone you don't really know and you say, "I'm sorry for your loss," to the relatives who are your friends cousin and they only took you because they didn't want to go. Sure you're sorry for their loss, but you feel just about as much sympathy for them as you do for anyone else who looses someone close to them. And it's not like you are going to go around to everyone who has someone close to them die and say, "I'm sorry for your loss," so you are really only saying it because it is expected. 

You know what is annoying? Attempted profoundness (it's a word I checked). When people say something that in their mind sounds so incredibly insightful that they just have to share it with everyone else. Especially when people do that thing where they turn a statement around. For example, "Don't clean the laundry, let the laundry clean you," or something to that effect. As with so many other things, I blame JFK. After his whole, "Ask not what your country can do for you," thing, everyone thinks that advice is just that easy. It's not.

Well, that's enough ranting for now. On to better things. I am at a weird state of limbo in between having a permit and a license. I have my permit and I have passed my driving test but, I have yet to get my license. Someone asked me if I drive today and it took me about fifteen seconds to come up with a coherent answer.

I forgot how funny Scrubs could be. I mean, back when it was actually funny before J.D. grew a beard and they brought on all of those stupid interns. J.D.'s hair bugs me though.I think I'll end on that note.

Have a nice day (and I'm just saying that perfunctorily),


  1. For the record, I love this blog.

    I would love it more with less grammar and spelling errors.

    But the content is great.

  2. Hopefully after tomorrow you will be a licensed driver. Just remember, don't drive the car, let the car drive you.

  3. Thanks Ashwin. Oh no, I just read the first few lines and I see what you mean (loose, --, etc.) I'll proofread next time. =)

  4. Yes, you should proofread :D

    Oh, man. "Don't clean the laundry, let the laundry clean you," is probably the best advice anyone has ever given me.
