Next off to Panera, where the Wi-fi is free -but yet, I simply CANNOT go in there with my SB cup - right? Well, I could, but really? Do I want to be that girl? No.I.Do.Not. So, now I'm hopped up on a few quick sips of my Frappachino and I must now buy a Shortbread cookie -because, well have you HAD a Panera Shortbread cookie? You must - one word - YUM! (and the cheapest thing on the menu.) So now my "free" wi-fi experience has cost me a Frappachino AND a cookie (well, and if I'm being honest here) a cup (not a bowl) of soup.
2nd. thing I learned today: DON'T try to find your "writing inspiration place" somewhere where they sell food - you fattie!!! YOU. WILL. WANT. TO. EAT.... AND EAT..... AND EAT SOME MORE. (Even though you had lunch with mom and dad four hours ago (well, four hours IS a long time -BUT, the cookie/frappa debacle should have sufficed until you got home.
3rd thing I learned today: I HAVE ADHD. I cannot concentrate on my own thing without listening to every.other.thing.going.on.around.me. GAWD - those people that hear "voices" - I feel for you.
4th thing I learned today: Bring headphones next time. Everyone else with a laptop here? also wearing earphones - I OBVIOUSLY didn't get the memo and am so.behind. the.times. when it comes to Wi-fiing out in the open public.
5th thing I learned today: Be a little less OBVIOUS when eavesdropping on public in very.public.place.
I soooooo got busted listening to and staring at random girl telling boyfriend she couldn't believe she got a DUI last week.(just to be clear, I was listening to stupid girl and staring at her HAWT boyfriend - not good anyway you look at it, I know, but I just wanted to clarify.)
6th thing I learned today: People will talk about ANYTHING in public place. Seriously? Reality TV so does not compare to what you can overhear in a Panera.... I am now considering canceling my cable service (since I'm still unemployed) and hanging out here for my entertainment.
7th and last thing I learned (well at least while at Panera) today: I really, really need to get my camera back out - there are some pretty cool pictures here and they are of BAGELS. Seriously? Panera Bread PAID for this "artwork." The unemployed Shopgirl with her
Ok - I'm outta here - it's finally warm(er) in Ohio and I'm going to take poochers for walk!
