i like watching csi. the mix of abysmal human character, technical details and psychology is something that appeals to me.
today over lunch a friend told me that she was out two nights ago and missed the last tram. as you may or may not know it’s freaking cold in germany at the moment and naturally she wasn’t too crazy about walking home in the middle of the cold winter night. she started to walk home but then saw a trash collector emptying out the trash bins at the tram stop.
now ladies, when you’re by yourself in the middle of the night and see a stranger on the street, what do you do? right, chat the guy up. WTF??? i thought my friend knew better but she indeed talked to the lonesome trash collector at the tram stop.
ok, i don’t want to criminalize anyone and i don’t think trash collectors are evil people. but i seriously doubted her decision making process.
she actually asked the trash collector where he was going and if she can ride with him for a little bit to get closer to her apartment. the dude agreed and ended up driving her home despite his route being on the other side of town.
she told me nonchalantly and what do i say? instead of a mild “really, i think that was the wrong decision” i said: “are you crazy? the trash collector? if he killed you he could have disposed of your body right away (hello? the trash truck!) and no one would have ever seen you again!!!”
another friend hearing that conversation started laughing at my response and said i watch too much csi, but really folks, if i had the intention to harm someone AND was driving a trash truck AND it would be in the middle of the night with no other witnesses…i’m just saying it’s convenient to have a trash truck.
my friend should make more careful decisions, trash truck or not.

there is some weird traffic from czech websites on this blog since i posted my question on the vs reward cards…if you notice anything strange on this blog let me know please. i’m a little paranoid they will hijack this blog.
on a different note, have you noticed how amazing the music to the true blood tv show is? i mean wow, the theme gets me every time. i need to get the soundtrack.

so i went to a taping of a tv game show. i’ve interned at a tv station before so it wasn’t all that new. but it’s been a while since i’ve been in a studio and certainly since i was part of a taping. the show was centered around humor so naturally it was far from being funny. i think i laughed twice throughout the ordeal and that only because they had little inserts from comedy shows and some of those comedians were actually funny.
so my friends and i sat through the show. the three candidates were not funny and the things they were supposed to do to gain points (to eventually win the show) were not funny either. maybe my sense of humor is off but i doubt that it was just a crappy show concept and crappy candidates. my friends and i lowered the age average in the audience by at least 20 years. all the grannies and grandpas were given a hard time because pee breaks were not allowed. and the taping went over an hour longer than anticipated. gee, even i needed to pee after that! the host was ok – yet guess what, he wasn’t funny either.
so all in all it was a non-funny evening. yay…i guess?! nevertheless, i had a great time with two wonderful friends. and this sunday we’ll be on tv! if that’s the show that is being aired. they actually taped two shows so i don’t know which one is running on sunday.
on a side note, i hit my head really hard on the sink yesterday. it is a free-hanging sink and i was bending down to check something close to the floor on the wall and when i came up i bumped my head. i thought either the sink or my head had cracked but that didn’t happen. instead i got a major headache and today i have a HUGE bump on my head. it hurts man!
off tending to my ailments
