Random musings from a sick person

On the way home tonight I noticed two things that struck me as odd. Now, I give you the caveat that I am ill and therefore not entirely in my right mind.

1) Is it just me, or is the last thing you want to see on a restaurant sign the words Thursday Surprise? Their idea of a nice surprise might be far different from mine. I'd expect a surprise of a beef wellington, perhaps, or lobster, and their version of a surprise would end up being head cheese or tripe. I love surprises - don't get me wrong - I just don't think I want them from a restaurant.

2) I was going past the U-Haul (which is a place that does self-storage and rents moving trucks, for those outside the US) and I noticed that they had lifesize cutouts of men in front of the doors of the storage areas. Now, I'm sure that the reason they have these cutouts is to show how big the storage lockers are, but what occurred to me? Well, I guess a body would fit in there. Have I crossed a line towards being scary, or have I finally read one too many murder mysteries? I'm not sure.

3) I really really hate it when I need to sneeze and I CAN'T. My eyes tear up and it's just horrid. Damn sinus infections.

4) I am much more happy about OotP being announced than I appear, much like the side mirrors on your car.
