Coffee, bagel and a curious conversation

Today after I received multiple injections in my left leg -- part of treatment for totally grody varicose veins -- I walked across the clinic's parking lot to imbibe in coffee and a bagel.

(French toast crunch, if you must know.)

There I sat sipping my hazelnut coffee and scrolling through Google News when a woman who, judging by the volume of her voice, seemed oblivious that she was inside a restaurant where most people read and chill rather than a rock concert, came strolling over.  She was greeted by a couple others and went on to explain why she was late to what sounded like a weekly gathering.

It was then that it seemed a grand idea for me to post what I overheard to Facebook.

Rather than retype what has already been put into words, I copied and now shall execute the paste:

FYI, apparently the plural of breakfasts is breakfastes ... At least according to the woman behind me.

It's clear what a people person I am, right? Well, I like people watching and documenting their behaviors. It is fascinating, sometimes, what goes on in the lives of others. This woman was either completely oblivious to how loudly she was speaking or she truly wanted every patron to know her woes and that her sister is a selfish, self-centered whiny baby. Oh, and let's not forget that having a tummy tuck was the best decision she ever made.

Unnecessary How-to

A few months ago I landed on Wiki-How thanks to a link on Pinterest. As a result of that I began following Wiki-How on Twitter. Now and then, I click the link. There are some useful things and others are simple things that one might assume everyone knows how to do.

For sake of experimentation and boredom, I searched what I think is the simplest thing on Earth to make: A peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Wiki-How did not disappoint. It has instructions complete with photographs. It, however, uses the wonkiest piece of bread they could find. I'd post the actual photo of said wackadoo slice of bread, but I'd probably be violating some copyright and I can't even afford to pay GoDaddy! to use my other blog let alone some legal fees to defend my intention to merely point fingers and laugh rather than steal.

OK, this is the link to the Wiki-How to make a PB&J.

Did you check it out? Scroll all the way down and they've added how to really jazz up your sandwich, as well as, tips on how to properly pack your culinary masterpiece in a lunch box.

More gems from the 'no duh!' category:

You get the picture. Boredom does weird things. Without bored people there wouldn't be Wiki-How and then what would I do when I was bored?

Rapier's Wit

This blog, like its owner, has undergone many changes over the years. Not unlike the dating life of this blog owner's dating life, this particular blog's location has been on a long hiatus.

Does that make sense?

I'm taking a rather simple subject and creating a more difficult one. I, Marissa, left Blogspot to pursue the wonder of WordPress via ownership of Go Daddy.

Ca-ca-poo-poo. Now, because I refuse to dole out the dough, I am no longer granted access to the blog known as Marissology.

Get out of the city, cousin Larry!!

So, now I am back to Blogspot with yet another name change. I'm blessed with an incredible surname. Why not use it. My wit, so I have been told, is keen and sharp like the blade of a sword. ie Rapier. Get it? If you don't, then you're not the sharpest knife in the kitchen.

Look, just for you I am using visual aids:

So, now that you've processed that my blogging has gone back to where it began, you might be wondering what became of the other one. I don't know just yet. I cannot access it because they want money and in these difficult economic times I refuse to help them pay the salaries of a female race car driver and a fitness guru.

In the words of Ritchie Cunningham: Sit on it, Go Daddy!

I'll be back again to bestow my Marissa-isms on you. Hold tight.
