Fine print

Men usually get dinged for not reading instructions or maps, but I’m just as guilty.

samsung galaxy s5When I recently upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S5 — from my beloved S3 — I didn’t even crack the manual cover.

Big mistake.

Just today I realized that I could increase the sensitivity of the touch screen so my phone works when I’m wearing winter gloves.

Does your fancy iPhone do that?

It’s a real question.

(I haven’t read those instructions, either.)

Rainy day

I bought a book called 642 Things to Write About for those days when I couldn’t think of anything to write about.

Today is one of those days.

One exercise suggests that I write a limerick. From scratch.  I don’t think I have ever tried that before…so here goes:

zanyThere once was a day oh so rainy
That the view out the window looked grainy.
It made the dog sleepy
And its mom kinda weepy;
Soon they both were locked up for the ‘zanies.’

You’re welcome.

Smirk

Oh, yeah.

It’s Monday.

Touched

As a city dweller sans car, I must employ a lot of strategery when out-and-about shopping.

For example,  you want to buy the big items last (so you carry them the shortest distance), which makes pre-planning your route key.

That’s why I am particularly excited about this new store in South Korea.

The items are actually touchscreen; you tap the ones you want, and they are waiting for you at checkout — no more shopping carts!

Brilliant.

Green

It’s hard to admit, but not all eggs are sticky.

In fact, some of the first ones I encountered as a child were green. And I got to see them up close and up sized today at Universal Studios.

If you didn’t get the reference, it’s from Dr. Seuss’ amazing Green Eggs and Ham.

Even if you did get the reference, it might be surprising to discover that it is a food stand.

Eureka!

Today was a very exciting day.

I finally found a hat that is bigger than my “larger-than-any-women’s-often-men’s-hat-shop-can-tackle (without resorting to a special order, I mean).

And here it is:

Carla Big Hat

It has the added bonus of covering all my hair — no need to brush, flat iron or coif!

Seeing may be a slight problem…
