23: Little things Wednesday

Since it’s been such a while, I am going to put together random stuff.

Of personal hygiene and gyms

How I hate it when I go to gym and find women standing in various states of undress and conducting seemingly normal conversations. No guys! That’s not on at all! My saving grace? I don’t work out with anyone I know personally and recently (after a year) I discovered the private changing rooms!!! Now I can avoid that whole madness. 

The other thing about gym are the number of people that get into the showers bare foot. Can anyone say disease already! Just buy a cheap pair of slippers and wear those rather. Then there are the others that shower with slippers and come and stand (stark-naked) on their towels. I certainly hope they wash it between sessions.

Given an option of hot/cold water and a door in you shower stall, why would someone opt for a cold shower in full view of everyone? 

Pet peeves

Just a few things that are grating on my nerves at the mo’.

  1. The gross impersonation of the African accent that Europeans occasionally dabble in a la Kerry Washington in The Last King of Scotland and Leonardo DiCaprio in Blood Diamonds.We do not sound like that, nowhere on the continent. I recently listened to an audiobook – A guide to the birds of East Africa (its fiction Smile ) and the readers Kenyan accent made the peoples sound like blithering fools.
  2. Drivers who do not indicate when they are going to turn left or right. I have no other driving concerns except the guy who won’t indicate especially  when you are at a T-junction and want to know if they are turning onto your road or going past you ….
  3. Reading blogs (that I understand are people’s personal biz) that detail pets in great detail. Any blog that has fur babies, details vet trips …. puke!
