1. Swim Diapers/Nappies (cause I am bilingual): Do you think they really do much? I mean, I suppose they can withhold certain solids from entering the pool. But do they really provide a barrier between pool water and baby bodily fluid? I submit, not. Now, don't get your swim diaper in a knot, I still use them. But let's just say we've had a few incidents where I wondered if it was as effective as it was meant to be.
Wanna invite us to come swim?
2. Bcc: I personally feel that not enough people are aware of the Blind Carbon Copy function in email. What do you think? This week alone, I've gotten three emails from different folks who sent their messages to at least 200 addressees. I had to scroll, and scroll and SCROLL down to get to the body of the message. On an iPhone, it takes like, multiple seconds to do that. Annoying! Plus, what if all those folks didn't want to make their email address visible to me? I might spam them. I might! I could!
Can we start an awareness campaign? A grass-roots type of movement? Maybe T-shirts with "I B(cc). U B(cc)." Hmmm, maybe not. Let's work on that. Ya know, I wasn't aware of Bcc until 4 or 5 years ago. May I share this great knowledge with you, too? The next time you're sending a mass email, put your own email address in the "To" line, then click on "Add Bcc" in gmail, or if you have a yahoo account, "Show Bcc". Then paste alllll those 532 addresses in there, never again to see the light of day. And there will be much rejoicing.
Some of you are sneering and saying, "Duh--like I didn't already know that!" Okay, Fancypants. Sorry to take up your time.
3. My shin muscles: (What are those called?) And also those little muscles that go from your ankles to your feet. (What are those called?) I've been exercising regularly and walking/running for a year now and lately they've started to feel really fatigued and "burny" really quickly. I don't think it's a shin splint, cause it doesn't really hurt, it's just really uncomfortable. And because I am a cream puff and a little whiny baby, it makes me quit running sooner than I should.
Readers, what am I doing wrong? Is there a stretch I can do? Strengthening? Is it my form, or lack thereof? My shoes? I just got new ones and it hasn't helped. I mean, those muscles should be more toned now than they were a year ago, so why am I only now experiencing issues? I am clueless about this stuff. I know this is probably a very common issue that everyone probably has, and here I am all acting like it's a strange phenomenon. I feel like Data in Star Trek: "What is this salty substance leaking from my visual orbs?" Anyhoo, maybe I should move to the stationary bike for a little while.
And there you have it: the next three topics I'll be introducing at my next dinner party. As you can imagine, I am very popular.
