I promised the manager of the local chinese restaurant that i would order dinner from him tonight so im kinda stuck with that, even if i feel like sushi
I had sushi for dinner.

(It takes a strong imagination to see tinned corned beef as raw fish, and toastbread as rice... but once you get past that, Dijon mustard is pretty close to wasabi. Cutting thin slices of room temperature corned beef is similar to what a sushi chef does, right?)

After step 5 I usually just decide it's easier to just delete the email.

A few weeks later I do 1-5 again ....

Did I miss a step in the development?
How do I block an email-sender? I can declare "him" spam but he will still go to the spam folder, which I then have to check every now and then, whether there is someone important in there by mistake. No?
(Thunderbird used here)

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Shit.

My life is so tough. I don't know whether to fly back business class or economy to Myanmar. I need extra luggage allowance to give my mother's clothes to people in cold and remote Myanmar (Chin State)

Wait, is that a first world problem or a third world one?

I would say that it is at least partly a hereditary problem.

You could just pay for extra baggage and then take the savings and donate it to a local school or similar.

Yes. She died three months ago with a designer wardrobe.... I live in Burma/ Myanmar and speak the language. I visit remote communities often, and am also an ambassador for certain states.

I have no use for the clothing as my life is much more simple. They do though.

However, the tattooed ladies in chin state (who are only tattooed on the face because of their beauty) do not have warm enough clothes. I have set them aside to take them with me directly.

I was just being a smart ass.

Of course I will fly business.

All children seem to be crying today .... the ones who stay home all day, the ones coming home from school ....
after an all-nighter with "homeland" this is very straining.
