A Social Experiment

Today I'm starting this experiment where I will blog everything I do throughout the day. It will cover the week of June 30 through July 6. Let's see if my life is as boring as I think it is.

  • Woke up, brushed teeth, showered, got dressed, combed hair.
  • Weighed myself: 122.
  • Read newspaper, got on bus, went to work.
  • Ate breakfast, two plums and a Diet Coke.
  • Worked. It was uneventful.
  • Ate lunch, half a panini, cottage cheese, a nectarine, rice, vegetables and salsa.
  • Worked. Still uneventful. Discovered that you can listen to the Mark Belling podcast without downloading it, so I can listen at any time throughout the workday. Sweet.
  • Walked to my mom's work for a ride home.
  • Arrived at home.
  • Went for a walk for 80 minutes, went to Pick 'n Save and bought some Uncle Ben's whole grain microwavable rice and vegetables.
  • Ate one packet of rice and read some of those websites I read.
  • Watched Intervention.
  • Read more internet stuff.
  • Updated my list of movies.
  • Wrote this post.

I will pick up tomorrow starting with what I did after this post.

Coming Soon--Update

I don't think I will actually ever write full posts on these topics, so here are all of them in a nutshell:

1. Why People Cheat
Generally, because there's something wrong with the relationship they're in. The other case is where someone is just a sex addict.

2. What's wrong with Britney Spears (also applies to Lindsay Lohan...)
They've been the main financial support for their families from a young age. If you don't get this part, we lose the house. But hey, no pressure!

3. Why some people can't acknowledge Brett Favre's greatness
Obsession with rules and the proper way of doing things. His form is bad, he skips practice, takes crazy risks...He breaks the rules with spectacular success.

4. The Hills--real or fake?
Mixed feelings on this topic. If it's 100% fake, I'd write it to be more interesting. Like Melrose Place. It's like when you relay a story about an event in your life to someone who may not know all the people involved. It's normal to slightly change some of the details of the story to make it make more sense to an outside observer. That's basically the fakeness of The Hills. They reenact some details of the stories to make it make more sense to us. But damn, Lauren Conrad's life must be confusing. How does that chick know where the show ends and her life begins? Plus, all the people on that show get too much sun or something, because they're all 22 and look 32. In particular, Lauren's ex, Jason. Holy crap. But Brody Jenner is hot, though.

5. The Cunservative Manifesto
Meh, I'm not even sure where I was going with this one.
