Vogelsang has no particular reputation at present
Re: The First World Problem Thread

I rode a bus on the outskirts of the city and it wasn't electric powered so I had to listen to drone of the engine.

Only 30 minutes left, but we can't continue to watch the Jason Bourne movie tonight because my son has a history project to complete.

My parents are thinking about selling their house when I'd already got plans for it.

Fetching somebody from her afternoon of ballet and gymnastics across the town

My life consists of 20min time slots, pretty much. Pomodoro technique.

Nothing that wrong, you just forgot to sing along. Very off key.

It's pay back for all the times I sang (screeched) Dolly's Joleneeeeeee.. to them as babies. They would squeal with laughter.. or maybe that was pain.

Clearly, I should've been a better parent.

There's no better parent than a parent singing Jolene! Take them to Dollywood, we loved it.

You read the in-flight magazine!!
I never before met anybody who does that?
What do you do during takeoff and landing, when you cannot have your electronics on, you haven't yet fallen asleep/you just woke up and are not on the ground yet, and you don't feel like chatting with your seat neighbor (which I hate to do)?

That's when I usually flip through the in-flight magazine. I find the the incredible cr*p they have on sale and the (unrelated) professional matchmaker ads quite entertaining. Lately I also enjoy looking at pictures of ridiculously priced beachfront apartments.

No time for that, I'm usually either looking out of the window or already reading my book.

Yes, I too really like Dolly.. and Jolene is a far better song than Tammy's whiny "Stand by your Man"
