Soooooo annoyed with the JUST SAY NO PARTY....Whine, snipe but have no answers or solutions...The ridiculous Birthers and the unruly/rude ignoramuses that shout down the Town Hall Speakers with one liners and they have no idea what their screaming about .....I can't stand it......It's embarrassing to watch this stupid dribble and the Media needs to stop giving them air time....

Doesn't help that I had already finished my book and I didn't have a spre with me because I didn't realise I would get through the 300+ pages so quickly.


You wouldn't like living in Seoul (or Beijing, I guess) where the clearing of one's throat and nose appears to be something you want to share with other passengers!

Book Depository cancelled two more orders on me? (They did have pics of the book, and their site says it's available in 24 hours -- just at a higher price.)
Argh.

I keep getting work that belongs to another Andrea at my work. It drives me crazy when people don't pay attention to whom they are sending e-mails to and I get hers, she gets mine. The problem I have with this is that as I deal with Payroll/HR issues these are sometimes confidential. People should be really careful when they e-mail a person - often the name defaults to the first person alphabetically on the list!

Ordered a 3-pack of a special shampoo for my husband. Well it came in the mail today except it was one bottle, not three.

And there was a lip gloss in the box that I didn't order. Wrong color for me at that.

I love this thread!

Guy at the gym has to start a freaking 15 minute loud chit chatty phone call whilst doing cardio. Almost as bad as the ones who come in dripping of perfume and/or aftershave.

Small gym though, I turned up the music volume :p :) :o
At home with a good book and the cat...
...is the only place I want to be

My husband! We have different ideas how to organize, especially the plastic containers in the kitchen. He just throws everything in willy nilly. Drives me nuts. Sometimes I have to put him on probation from even emptying the dishwasher because he just ignores my organization system.
