Random Thoughts #1

I always get a series of random thoughts that I want to share with you my blog readers (thanks for reading each week!). The problem is that none of the thoughts really fit together. I have been writing them down and thought that today would be a great day to share them with you.
  • This weekend I am heading down to Calgary Stampede. I am super excited for a few reasons. It is a great time to see everyone and catch up with old friends. It also means the steer show which I find really fun and exciting whether competing or not. This year however, we do have a steer, so I promise to have results of your next week. The third reason I love Calgary is the atmosphere. Everything from the tons of people asking questions about agriculture and where there food comes from, to the rodeo and chuckwagons, and finally the grandstand show. I am hoping to get to watch the grandstand show Friday or Saturday night as a section on it is all Micheal Jackson themed!
  • Public Displays of Affection or PDA- I HATE PDA. I see no reason for you to have to cuddle with your boyfriend during a business meeting, or have to hold your boyfriends hand everywhere you go. Good for you, you found yourself a man, now please do not rub it in my face, and parade it around for everyone to see. Now there are 2 times in life when I do not mind a little PDA. The first is on your wedding day. It's your wedding day, if you are not a little extra cuddly and happy to be around one another, you may have an issue on your hands. The second is when no one is around, or you are not flaunting it. This is much harder to distinguish between, but yes it can be done.
  • City Transit Buses. I swear they are going to be the vain of my existence. I understand the purpose of them, and how they can be very useful to the transportation system within a city. However, what I hate about buses are the rights that they have, or think that they have. The big one is bus lanes. The worst ones are the ones that are in construction zones. I don't know how many times I have been stuck in traffic, not moving, yet a bus whizzes on by and gets to cut in front of me because his bus lane is ending. The other thing that really bothers me about city buses are the drivers. I have no idea where they find these guys, but there are so many accidents, and close calls. I know that if I see a bus I try to get as far away from it as possible. There is no way I want to be driving beside it.

Oh I feel you on the PDA---where it drives me the most crazy is in church! Seriously, go be all over each other somewhere else!
