Random Suzemusings

Just some stuff I’ve been thinking about tonight:

  • Will any of this political stuff still matter to people in a month, two months, six months, once the media circus dies down? Or will we just go on about our lives?
  • Will I ever be able to play barre chords without a big pause in between to reset my fingers?
  • If people start to bail on Twitter because of ad schemes like #magpie, will people just find another Twitter? 
  • Why are more Canadians talking about the U.S. election than talked about our own election? 
  • Are we spending too much time analyzing everything and not enough time doing actual stuff?
  • If I was going to live somewhere other than Ottawa, I’d live (in no particular order) in Calgary, Halifax, St. John’s, Cincinnati, Boston or Melbourne.
  • I have exactly 23 days left to be 37, and exactly 23 days to figure out how I am going to make 38 the best year yet. I’m open to suggestions.
  • I wonder if flannel pajamas will ever be socially acceptable as business attire. Wouldn’t that be awesome?
  • Do people use things like Twitter because they are interested in other people’s lives or interested in telling the world how interesting their life is. Or both?
  • Why do we spend so much time wondering what’s coming next? Maybe we should focus more on what’s happening now. 

That’s it. My stream of consciousness substituting for a blog post tonight. Feel free to contribute your own musings in the comments. I’ll be back soon with a real post.

  1. Do people use things like Twitter because they are interested in other people’s lives or interested in telling the world how interesting their life is. Or both?

    Yes. I love listening to other people talk about their daily lives in small sound bytes. I hate talking to customers about computer stuff because it’s not my forte, but human interest (specifically interest in their lives) is. And I also like telling people when I’m having an ordinary or boring day in the hopes that they feel they have something to twit to cheer me up or get me thinking about other stuff other than self pity. 🙂

  2. thoughts on your stream
    -yes
    -barre chords. I always seem to pick songs with lots of F, F#m, Bm and so on. damn barre chords still can’t get them right and others make it look so easy
    -people won’t bail due to ad schemes. never have, never will
    -canadian elections are boring
    -yup on analyzing too much. i choose action personally
    -California coast (half moon, monterey, …), Barcelona, NYC, big island hawaii, Nice … If I move, it sure as hell ain’t gonna be Calgary or Cinci … lame (no offense)
    -37 is when it hit me that I was getting older. could ski and party like crazy two days in a row. tried red bull and espresso … nothing … then laid in bed amake most of the night. but don’t worry, i’m sure its just me
    -pajamas are already acceptable social attire in a least two places 1) my house 2) the playboy mansion. two good choices
    -why twitter: both reasons in good balance.
    -I love what is next while living in the moment. it is not a contradiction.

    Not sure if you were looking for our answers to your streams but the ? marks seemed to be begging for it.

  3. don’t you wish you could edit you own comments after you read them adn realyes u made tipos. darn. oh well, you get the drift

  4. Ah, Susan, Susan (Sue?).

    Musings – you have to love ’em, huh? I find some of the best inspirations come from musings – business ideas, pitches, blog posts, etc. Something to do with the sub-conscious eating into the conscious, I think. Don’t quote me though, I’m not a psychologist! 🙂

    RE. turning 38 – live each day as if it’s your last before your 39. Because then you’re only 1 year away from catching up on me! 😀

  5. “Are we spending too much time analyzing everything and not enough time doing actual stuff?”

    Great food for thought…whether it’s social media or the financial crisis or the next U.S. president…are we actually DOING something with or about it or are we just yapping?
