Rules that guys wished women knew

  1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.
  2. Learn to work the toilet seat; if it's up, put it down.
  3. Don't cut your hair. Ever.
  4. Sometimes, we're not thinking about you. Live with it.
  5. Get rid of your cat.
  6. Saturday + Sunday = Sports. Learn this equation
  7. Anything you wear is fine. Really.
  8. Women wearing Wonder bras and low-cut blouses lose their right to complain about having their boobs stared at.
  9. You have too many shoes.
  10. Crying is blackmail.
  11. Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don't work.
  12. Mark anniversaries on a calendar.
  13. "Yes" and "No" are perfectly acceptable answers.
  14. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.
  15. Don't fake it. We'd rather be ineffective than deceived.
  16. Anything we said six or eight months ago is inadmissible in an argument.
  17. If you don't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.
  18. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad and angry, we meant the other one.
  19. Let us ogle. If we don't look at other women, how can we know how pretty you are?
  20. Don't rub the lamp if you don't want the genie to come out.
  21. You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done, not both.
  22. Christopher Columbus didn't need directions, and neither do we.
  23. You have enough clothes.
  24. Men are from earth; women are from earth. Deal with it.
  25. Nothing says, "I love you" like sex.


Can someone explain this to me??

I really wish you could have seen this in person. Suspenders over a tucked-in t-shirt with holes in it, jeans above the navel, crossed legs, and the best part of all (which you can't see in the picture), BLUE POLKA-DOTTED shoelaces!!! What a gem.

Best Buy gets it right

A couple years ago, I almost wrote off Best Buy for good. Then about a year ago, they started pulling things together as Circuit City and CompUSA went out of business. Things have been continually improving ever since.

I have been a part of Best Buy's RewardZone program since its inception about 6 years ago. And apparently I spend so much money there that I am part of their Premier Silver membership, which comes with some special perks and benefits (like free shipping from their online store, no restocking fees on returns, and a more liberal return policy in general).

Tonight I received an email from Best Buy, announcing their personal shopper program. The program provides a dedicated phone number and email address for Premier Silver customers. I'm assuming it's a similar service to what Apple offers in their stores (except Best Buy's service is via phone and email), and I have yet to try it, but it's a nice touch for such a large retailer to start offering more personalized service to their customers.

How often do we drive by the same people and never realize it?

A few months ago, I posted about a blue Nissan Sentra that was driving around with a Tustin Lexus license plate frame. [original post here] It caught my eye because I thought it was odd to see an older model Nissan driving around with a Lexus frame.

Well, as it turns out, today (4 months later) I happened to find myself behind the same car, except almost 20 miles away.

Today in Fullerton, CA

December in Costa Mesa, CA...

And here's a map to show where I came across the same car.

With the 3 million people living in Orange County, what are the odds? Maybe it happens more than we think.
