Thoughts during my first class of 2013

I decided to take an undergrad course at UBC this semester.  Don’t ask me why.  I decided on CNPS 427.  It’s been a while since I’ve taken a CNPS course in the Scarfe building.  It brought back memories.  Here are some thoughts that I had during the class:

-If my prof wore glasses, he would sort of look like Mr. Feeny from Boy Meets World.

-He has a nice sweater vest.

-I like how his shirt and tie match exactly.  I think the tie might actually be part of the shirt.  Either way, it’s brilliant.

-I’m bored.

-Why am I still in school?

-Is it ironic that I’m taking a class called “Planning and Decision Making” when I clearly suck at both?

-Why am I the only one eating food right now?  Is no one else hungry?  Whatever.

-Is everyone else actually paying full attention right now?

-I don’t want to buy another $100 textbook.  Damnit.

-Of course I would pick a course that required a written assignment, an in class presentation, and a final exam.  FML.

-You would think by now I would have stopped making the awful decision to take 3 hour classes.  Apparently not.

My thought process on the bus this morning

Do you ever arrive at a particular thought and then retrace how you got to it?  Cause I do that all the time.  And I think about the most random things while passing time riding the bus.  Here’s part of what my thought process was like this morning…

“I’m sitting on the bus.  It’s pretty empty today.  That’s good.  There could be a murderer on this bus and I wouldn’t know it, ready to take someone hostage.

That episode of Touch where he’s on the bus and that girl pulls a gun on him because she wants to kill that guy who killed her father and her brother.  But he stops her and she ends up in the hospital and she finds out her brother’s still alive.  And he needs a bone marrow transplant so she donates hers.  Lucky she found him, because he had no one else available who was a match.

That episode of American Dad where Haley needs a kidney transplant.  But then her dad might not really be her dad because her mom slept with another guy before the wedding so he might not be a match.  Her kidneys are failing because of too much drinking.  She was having drinks with her mom and her mom’s friend and her mom told her to sit the last one out but she drank it anyway because she didn’t want to be considered a light weight.

Some people remember every drink they had the night before and keep a list.  Like that guy on that episode of Dragons’ Den who developed that drink called last call that you take before you go to bed after a night of drinking so you don’t get a hangover.  He wrote a list of all the drinks he had the night before on his arm.  He had an actual flair bartender there helping him with his pitch.  It’s good to know people.

That episode of Beauty and the Geek where the geeks had to do flair bartending.  One guy had the accuracy and the technique down well, but the other guy was just more fun with it.  The guy who was more skilled got upset when he didn’t win.  But the other guy was funnier, and people would appreciate that more.

I would suck at flair bartending.  Or bartending in general.

There should be flair cashiering.  Why hasn’t anyone thought of that before?  You know, toss the stapler, spin around, twirl some pens.  I’m going to update my facebook status and tweet about that right now.

How did I end up thinking about this?  I’m going to retrace my thoughts.

(retracing thoughts)

Oh right, there could be a murderer on this bus.

I should blog about this tonight.”

I could totally do some flair cashiering by juggling these items during a transaction
