equally problematic. once the tv is over there's no energy left so one leads to the other.

People who don't use turn signals.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

People here either don't use them at all or wait until they are 1/2 way into their turn before turning them on. I think since they make the turn every day we are all suposed to just know!

the point where I'm tired enough I could fall asleep, but realize I have about an hour's worth of work left to be done.

That might even be worse. I actually stay up and do the work most of the time because there will be more tomorrow.

I hate the fact that they don't make sherry in small bottles like other wines. I have several recipes that call for a half cup or a few tablespoons.

uggh! That's as bad family members using your bed as a dresser or desk for your things while you are away, then you come home exhausted and ready for bed and have a bed full of stuff to deal with.

Tornadoes. Well, okay, I'm sorry. I'm not a Tornadophobe; I don't hate all tornadoes. I hate the one that hit my house a few weeks ago.

Thank the Lord that no one was killed in town and there were only two minor injuries.

The house survived with broken windows and a few holes in the roof.

My shed, however, is another story. The roof and the wall were gone; the only thing left standing was the front door section still held together by a Brinks padlock. Brinks padlocks: ask for them by name! I took a photo and sent it to Brinks.

Thanks for asking! I'll post some pics later.

The tornado hit around 8:30PM on 07/08/09. If it had been say 2:00AM, I'm not sure how many people would have heard the sirens.

I e-mailed that picture to Brinks and told them about the tornado and their lock. I would gladly do a commercial for them!

For some reason this brought to mind the wall made of Woot "pucks" posted by mnementh about 4 years ago.
It was awesome.
