The Random Musings of an Attention-Seeking Author – 08/03/2010 to 14/03/10

I do apologise for not writing much…but unfortunately, there IS nothing to write about. Life has been unbelievably routine, and amidst the rush of lectures and homework, the dullness left is pure drudgery. However, there HAS been some interesting bits and pieces of random events that have provided some relief:

  1. I have been slightly sick the past few days. Actually, more than slightly – I’m starting to think I could be one of the patients in an episode of HOUSE M.D. Now, you guys might think that being sick is all doom and gloom – I can’t get much rest, I cough my lungs out, and I’m behind on my schoolwork. (The latter is also partly due to procrastination, but let’s not dwell on stuff that is actually my fault). However, being sick has ONE silver lining: I don’t have to exercise. Small price to pay, hmm?
  2. I met a guy at church today who resembles the actor Joshua Jackson, who plays Peter Bishop in FRINGE. Not kidding. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of him, but here’s a picture of Joshua Jackson:

    Now, imagine him a little fatter, and with more hair…..he could be an alternate version of Joshua Jackson / Peter Bishop! Which kinda ties in well with FRINGE’s whole “alternate universe” theory……

  3. As part of my Critical Legal Thinking course, I had to learn about “faulty arguments”. One of them was the argument of Correlation and Causation, where two statements appear to correlate, but may not actually do so. The example I read was hilarious:
      • An overall decrease in the number of pirates over the last century corresponds with an increase in global warming over the same time period.
      • Therefore, global warming is caused by a lack of pirates.

    Huh? Huh? You can’t make this stuff up. And people say lawyers have no sense of humour…

  4. Now, if you have read the previous article about the Brisbane Bus Service, you would have noticed that I said that I wore shorts to uni. That was a truly rare occasion, as I prefer jeans….and I look waaaay better in them. However, a few days ago, a school bus from a girl’s school rolled up to uni. The one day I dressed down, a busload of schoolgirls came trucking into the campus. I just can’t win.

Alright guys, that’s it from me. I have to try to get some work done tonight….or just procrastinate again. I mean, at least that’s better than seeing me in shorts, right?

World’s Worst: Pickup Line

Hey guys. Just something random I decided to do here on The Write Stories: World’s Worst! This came from a game from the show “Whose Line is it Anyway?”; where contestants came up with as many examples of “The World’s Worst ____”. Just for fun, I’ve decided to start this right here!

So, here’s how we play. Each time a subject is started here, you will have the chance to post your examples of it. They can be funny, they can be from real life, Whatever. Just post them as comments, and the top 3 (in my opinion) will be placed in another blog post.

Alright then, to today’s subject. The world’s worst….Pickup Line. Go!

Here’s an example which, to me, just screams desperate. It’s taken from “Double-Crossed”, a crossover episode of the popular Disney Channel programs, The Suite Life on Deck and Wizards of Waverly Place, involving the character Zach”oh-so-smooth” Martin (Dylan Sprouse) and Alex Russo (Selena Gomez).

Alex: (looking at menu) “What do you recommend?”
Zach: “Me!…(holds up can) With whipped cream!”

Do I even have to mention that that was a children’s program? Sigh…. Kids these days….

You can view the moment here.
