Oh sheesh, I see it was one of "Those" nights again.

Oh well, it's another day.
The trouble is.... it's a Saturday. I hate Saturdays. Shopping, shopping, shopping.

You mean "THAT" good?

Aaahhh, shopping it is, groceries, I hate it when car is broke. When not, one venture out to Frog land to load up on their peculiar food things. And then cooks, and cooks, and cooks. Saturday is great, though, the fresh markets, and radio shows, cleaning up makes one feel rejuvenated.

Oldhand, how is your morning? Just make sure you have a plenty of water.

Re: I want to complain!

Do your close friends and family ever make you want to quit the internet? Some days, I just want to 'Delete, delete, delete', log off and never be seen/heard again. Don't give me any of that 'Oh!, but theyre FAMILY!' crap. Just STFU. That's what makes it worse.

Why isn't there a smiley hitting themself in the head with a ball peen hammer?

It's amazing how long one can think of sth. clever or helpful to say, but only end up with "that sucks"...
well, that sucks.

It does, doesn't it? I don't mind that people have different opinions from me, I just hate it when they have loud pig ignorant opinions and are related to me.

Desiderata?

Some cheesy, "wise" words which are actually a laugh in itself. However the patronising component of them can be helpful for the ego by gaining a moderate "I'm a gooood" person perspective.

"(..) listen to all, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story"

"they too have their story"...How condescending is that? However, in hard times maybe the least worst option and come handy.

Once I reread it over and over.

It's actually only the old version of the nowadays more widespread "I'm cooler than you, so I don't freak out."

Good luck. Hope you sort it out.

It's no big deal, just years of listening to self-proclaimed intelligent people constantly proving otherwise.

people with bags on the seats of public transport
I experienced that this weekend when I took the train to Zurich. They only had 2 cars for 2nd class and 1 car for first. OK... first of all... wtf?!? Second of all... wtf?!? When I got on the train it was full and people didn't give two shits about taking up all the space. Sprawled out. bags and jackets everywhere. No consideration shown to those looking for a seat. I had always thought that people on EF were just exaggerating. But gads. It was bad.

So I just found the best looking person to sit next to, asked, "May I sit here?", plopped myself down, and gorged on eye candy for the next hour. And it was delicious, too.

nom nom nom nom nom

Re: I want to complain!

You want to complain! Look at these shoes. I've only had them three weeks and the heels are worn right through.
If you complain nothing happens, you might as well not bother.
Oh my back hurts, it's not a very fine day and I'm sick and tired of this office.
