While at Work

I started work at the Hollywood Bowl for my second summer on Monday.  It isn’t exactly intellectually stimulating work (I mean I pick up leaves and trash for most of the day), it does afford me a lot of time to think.  And so comes another list of thoughts I’ve pondered.

-On the job, you run into lots of people looking for the box office.  The thing is it’s really easy to find, but there’s no sign telling people where it is at the main entrance.  That means we have to tell them where it is over and over again.  I must ask for that sign soon.

-On Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood is the blandest Pier 1 I’ve ever seen.  I mean it has a nice entrance, but the buildings exterior is just a plain white with no trims or anything.  You’d think this wouldn’t be the case for a store that supposedly helps you make your home not look so plain.

-You know, people say there aren’t a lot of attractive-looking people in Berkeley.  I, on the other hand, think there are quite a few attractive people there and it’s not too hard to find them at least in comparison to most public places. With the exception of some places (the beach comes to mind), just taking glances around the area probably won’t yield a good “view” of somebody attractive, but I could be wrong.

-Speaking of being attractive, finding the right pair of sunglasses can really make a person look better.  Put them on and you can go from lame duck to swan in no time.  I mean I doubt we’d think the Matrix look wouldn’t be so cool without them.

-I saw my brother’s Decathlon banquet video for the first time.  He pointed out his main “rival,” if you will, was a young man named Kalel, which also happens to be the Kryptonian name of a certain Man of Steel.  Would Kalel also prove to be able to leap over my brother in a single bond?  No, apparently my bro managed to be more powerful than a locomotive in Decathlon.  I must say, though, having a name like Kalel seems pretty cool.  It’s even cooler than being named Optimus Prime, like that guy in Ohio (I’m not kidding, check out this Wikipedia article.)

-Why can’t I make comments in Xanga sites without an account?  I mean anybody can comment in livejournal (if it’s turned on of course).

-Speaking of random, the lyrics of this song, Train – Drops of Jupiter, are so random to my ears.  These odd lines include “She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo,” “Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken,” and “Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone conversation.”  You have to admit it is an interesting set of words they use.
