Swine Flu, The Metro and a Little Bit of Human Courtesy

I ride the metro everyday. Twice a day in fact. Most of the time it isn’t the most enjoyable experience, but deal with it. I do not want to deal with it during this time of epidemic, pandemic flu nonsense. I have a real problem with people who are just rude and inconsiderate about the whole situation. When the woman sitting next to me, pulls out a box of tissues, starts sneezing and coughing and blowing her nose and even pulls out a nose spray, I have issues with this. If you are sick. Stay home. If you are sick during this epidemic/pandemic nonsense. Really stay home. DO NOT GET ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. Seriously, how hard is it? People are coughing and carrying on, CLEARLY sick, and everyone else gives them dirty looks, but they don’t mind. It is rude, and I can’t believe something hasn’t been said to people about traveling on public transportation. I understand people have to get places and have things to do, but its just gross and again, inconsiderate.
I also don’t get the whole hand washing thing. I mean, I GET IT, but at the same time I don’t. If you cover your mouth when you cough, congratulations, gold star! But if you don’t wash your hands IMMEDIATELY after coughing/spreading germs on your hands, whats the point?! If you cough on your hand and then touch your keyboard, or coat, or handle on the metro, you are spreading germs to all those things, end of story. Am I right? And then, in turn, everyone else who touches those things spreads more germs. Unless you are disenfecting CONSTANTLY. I know this is the way of the world, and some germs are good, and blah blah, I just get frustrated when people are gross on the metro.
Another prime example: Two guys were screaming at each other on the metro yesterday because of this flu business. One guy was coughing and NOT covering his mouth. The other guy yelled at him, telling him to stop coughing all over everyone. Coughing guy says “Screw you” and it went downhill from there. People are on edge about all this, and its upsetting. I know the situation with the Swine Flu isn’t so bad yet, but it does seem to be getting worse everyday. This isn’t just about the outbreak, its about people being decent to other people. Sorry for the early morning rant, I just got all worked up about all this, and I feel better for writing it down. Thanks for reading. Happy posts to come later!

Unstoppable

Tonight, Mich and I were on a mission to find the newly release Britney: For The Record. We each have been counting down the days for this to come out. We LOVE Brit Brit (just in case you didn’t already know). We even planned a sleepover evening/event of fablousness specifically for the DVD release.

Sadly, we couldn’t find the stupid DVD.

We went to Target and Barnes & Noble and neither places had it. Stupid stores. We weren’t about to drive all over the world for it, hopefully I will be able to find it later this week. UGH! So annoying. Luckily, today was also the release of Rascal Flatts latest CD, Unstoppable, which we were able to pick up. Can’t wait to jam out to that baby on my way up to Philly this weekend. Good tunes = an awesome ride.

When we got back to Mich’s place, we had some brews, Newton’s Folly Ciders. It was really good. I love sweet things, and cider is a sweet beer. I can only have about 2 before they become too sweet for me, and when I have to switch to regular beer. Please embrace the pics:

We ordered Mediterranean take-out. We shared Jalapeno Poppers:

I got a Vegetarian Pita with Falafel. It was a little soggy when I got it, which made me sad. It was good other than that. I had about half and will save the rest for tomorrow:

Also, I would like to give a Gold Star to Mich. She made this all by herself, BIG KID! Such a good idea. Way to use your creative juices! It matches her room perfectly, and is obviously featuring one of our favorite colors of all time: PINK!

Ok, so then….we made CAKE. I think I may have a problem. Confetti vanilla cake with chocolate icing, and NERDS on top. I have to give Mich all the credit for that one. I have never had it before, was a little nervous, but it was really good. They give the cake a little crunch!

Decorating the cake with a secret message:

My piece which I ate in 10 seconds FLAT! It may just be a new high score!

Great times with a great friend. And as Mich said on the Rascal CD she burned for me:
“Our Love and Friendship is Unstoppable!!”
