Couple things bugging me lately…

Nothing too serious, just the usual opportunities to waaaaaaaay overthink public media on the daily commute:

1.) The Big Giant Ad of Specialness one of the online dating services – could be lavalife.com – has put up @ Union Station. ‘We’re looking for Canada’s Top 200 Singles!’ it says. Apparently there are prizes and everything.
Now, correct me if I’m missing some marketing subtletly here, but this is a dating service, right?  So, following things out to the logical conclusion, your ‘top singles’ would be…the ones who aren’t single anymore? I mean, if they are still single, that would indicate a pretty severe failure to get with the program, from your POV.

2.) OK, this Robert Pattinson thing. He has my undying respect for his candidly-stated approach to his Twilight character – basically, the Method expression of "Are you %#$^%&-ing kidding me?". Thing is, he has also been confronting me on newstands everywhere lately, and you’ll need to excuse me while I get this off my chest:

Is it just me, or does he – when in Edward Teh Angsty Vampire mode, anyhow – look exactly like a live-action Dragonball Z character? You know – the Brows of Badassery drawn way down his face, with a ferocious little scowl sort of wedged beneath? Like, it’s hard to tell whether he’s heroic or just irritable that he didn’t listen when his mom said his face would freeze like that?

This all I have been able to see for some few months now, at any rate, and it is impeding what little ability I have left to take the whole Sparkly Fun Undead franchise seriously…oops, slipped another notch there.

You know, there are days when a long urban commute has its compensations, after all.
