A Child's Happiness

When I came home after running errands this afternoon, there was a group of little girls sitting outside. They came rushing up to my car, trying to sell something for school (I assume, it could have been a fundraiser for almost anything). I wasn't interested in whatever it was that they were selling, so I told them "no thanks." They then asked me if I wanted to give them a tip. I said sure and handed them a dollar. Just a dollar.

They jumped up in the air, so excited! $2.50! We've made $2.50 now! They did a little dance and went back to looking for customers.

Wouldn't it be nice to be so happy about $2.50?

Why New Jersey is Nonsensical

I went to the DMV this afternoon to get my car re-inspected. Because it failed the first time, for a little reflector that was broken. Anyway, I got the reflector fixed and went back down to the DMV and followed the signs for the inspection line. I got to the chick who tells you which line to get in, and she told me that, because I was getting re-inspected, I had to go somewhere else.

She says that I should go around the building and then she says, "You know the area that says 'DO NOT ENTER'?

I say, "yeah."

She says, "Yeah, go there."

Right, of course, I should have known that. Duh.

Go figure, it's New Jersey.

2 Things

My head is pounding from fasting, but two things to blog about today:

1) Interesting article in the NY Times about the singles scene on the Upper West Side.

2) New favorite word - squogre - it's a twist between a squirrel and an ogre and will now be used to describe someone I don't like, or who is annoying me.
