I just thought I would share some thoughts I had this past week...
1. Contemporary Art makes me angry
Wyatt and I decided to visit the Portland Art Museum last week. Yes, there were a lot of pieces of art that portrayed a lot of talent...even if I didn't necessarily like them. However, I just can't swallow the fact that people can paint a canvas a solid color, add a splash of another color and call it "art". Really. I just don't think that pieces of art that anyone can paint/create belong in an art museum. It just seems like with flexible boundaries like that, anyone could submit their personal "art". Where is the line of talent?
2. Liking Pad Thai doesn't mean you like Thai food
My work treated my fellow coworkers and me to a Thai food lunch. As it turns out all but one (me) ordered Pad Thai. And everyone claimed that they like Thai food. That's like saying you like Italian food but only eat spaghetti. You can't claim all by choosing only one. Be adventurous people! There is more to life then Pad Thai and spaghetti.
3. 2008 was the year of prego women
I have been keeping a tab of all the women I'm related to, friends with and associated with that were prego in the year 2008. I counted the names on my list yesterday...38 women. 38! Is there something in the water? Did I miss the memo (not that I'm upset)? This seems like an unusually high number. Weird.
