Important things to ponder at 12:01 am.

1. What's this new trend of referring to people as @name. Like, on a facebook status, someone will be like "@Rachel - I thought the same thing!" Um, my name is Rachel. Just Rachel. And facebook is not Twitter. I'm assuming that's where it comes from, right? Twitter? I hate Twitter. It's stupid unless you're following a celebrity. But, back to the original point - why add the @ when you're not on Twitter? It makes me feel like a robot. And, it serves no purpose. No purpose at all.

2. So, you know when you're daydreaming about what it would be like to go back in time and the more you start thinking about it, the more you realize you don't know how anything works? Like - how would you make soap, so you could stay clean (unlike all the people from the Dark Ages that never bathed)? Could you rig a system with indoor plumbing? I couldn't. Nor could I make electricity or anything. Well, for some reason, I spend a lot of time thinking about this, and it looks like I'm not the only one, because someone came up with this. If the internet is good for one thing, it's helping you realize that other people waste their time thinking about the same crazy shit as you.

3. Did you ever notice that there was a lot of rapping about Arnold Schwarzenegger in the early 90's? I wonder if those rappers think about how he's just a boring old Republican governor now when they hear those songs.

Not sure what I'm talking about?

Shoop/Salt 'N Pepa - "Got a body like Arnold with a Denzel face"

Jump Around/House of Pain - "Or better yet a terminator Like Arnold Schwarzenegger Try'n to play me out like as if my name was Sega"

Arnold Schwarzenegger/World's Apart - "'Cause Arnold Schwarzenegger is in your dreams each night Where Arnold Schwarzenegger gets to kiss and hold you tight"

And I'm sure there's more. Was Arnold, like, way bigger than I remember him being? I mean, I was at the peak of my pop culture knowledge in the 90's and I don't remember him being all that awesome.

4. I wish my name was in rap songs. I was in a rap video once, but no lyrics revolving around @Rachel. I bet you think I'm kidding about the rap video, but it's true. I was totally a video ho for a day and I loved every second of it.

You can see me around the 2:08 mark. And by "see" I mean "know exactly where to look and don't blink."
