Re: The First World Problem Thread

After going down the Kindle rabbit hole I've just discovered that three authors I particularly admire are, in actual fact, all the same person. And she also has a day job. I feel highly inferior...

I hate it when that happens. Also pulling the ring off a ring pull when the business end is still attached to the damn can which you now have no way of opening...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My mini retractable cable mouse just died. My hands are just a bit too small to comfortably use a "normal" sized mouse and I have a hell of a lot of work to do. The mouse pad is not a practical option.


Bullocks.

I'm not sure, as a Brit, whether I can tell FWPs any more but here goes: My ice-cream is so cold it took ages to scoop it out into a bowl.

Given the current exchange rates, I'm not sure anymore if I should use amazon.co.uk or amazon.de

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Facebook asks me what is on my mind before I've started my first coffee, then tells me what is on other peoples minds before I've finished it. Given that there are a whole 24 hours of minds left and right of me my coffee is inevitably cold before I even get to EF.

Too many entertaining threads on the forum this evening, and I have run out of Haribos.

I'm regretting that I'm not taking anti-depressants.

That's probably a good thing. Pure sugar and other stuff that's probably (definitely) not so good for you... but they're terribly more-ish. These are the best (if you can't get whole back of sour cherries, that is...):





A necessary (!) marking aid...
