Truly Random PST

Here is a random sampling of some thoughts I've been having lately:

  • Why do stores use the word "blowout" to describe a sale? I do not think I want to buy any blowout clothes, even for only $1. Thanks anyway Walmart. 

  • Can NBC seriously find no one better for the job than Bob Costas? He's a likeable guy and I know he's been doing it awhile now (9 Olympic games) but I think he's terrible at interviewing people. I hear Oprah is free. Or how about Katie Couric? Let's get a real hard hitter people. Or may even a real  comedian from the late night line-up. Anyone else really...

  •  I read in The Week magazine the following clip, "American swimming star Ryan Lochte admits he sometimes pees in the pool, and he has plenty of company. “Nearly 100 percent of elite competitive swimmers pee in the pool,” said Carly Geehr, a former U.S. Olympian. “As a swimmer, you just have to accept the fact that you’re swimming in pee.” I'm wondering if this is just one of the facts of life we all need to accept. Kids pee in pools, animals pee in oceans, lakes and streams, and apparently many adults don't hold back either. Should I still teach my kids to abstain...I'm doubting it. (Kidding of course...the ideal is still nice to hold on to).

  1. Oh pee. I lol-ed at that! And yeah, I can't stand Costas.
