    Stupid Pet Peeves

    folks who can't manage to open the bag inside the cereal box neatly along the top edge but just rip it open in a haphazard fashion so that when you try to pour a bowl of cereal the cereal spills out all over the place

    Colton, do you think there's a way to work "speak truth to power" and "weaponize" into this statement?

    ha ha, reminds me of one of my favorite typos, though I haven't noticed it lately it' snot ANYHOW, my latest pet peeve are folks who just can't stay anywhere near their own lane when they make turns, especially when they're going a wee bit fast - - and you're sitting in your lane and a car...

    Jazzfanz Bookclub

    I read Killers of the Flower Moon last year. Liked it - - fascinating story. Somewhat complex though, I sort of wish I had a Cliff's Note version (or some sort of flow chart) to keep it all straight. One of the more interesting ideas I gleaned from the book was how law enforcement in general...

    I just recently read Circe. It was OK but it made me feel like I was back in junior high doing the mythology unit.

    So this is the 20 year anniversary of Jazzfanz

    so what's that saying? the more things change, the more they stay the same? or something like that... (and you know that means I'm gonna post a music video now, don't you?)

    why don't you just breathe through your mouth, maybe a little faster and louder as the massage continues

    interesting, thanks GF, somehow I never thought to look it up, I figured it was just some made-up phrase! And so I did just look it up, and in addition to the meaning you mentioned, I also saw that it can refer to the penance imposed by the priest after confession...

    The metal things fold down so it's flat. And they come in a variety of sizes depending on how thick your stack of cash and/or cards is. Looks like the one in this photo is pretty much the "baby" size.

    The Random Question Thread

    LOL @ this post from 2-1/2 years ago... but anyhow... What is SHRIFT? And why does it always seem to be short? Has anyone ever heard of a long shrift?

    this is what my husband uses, he actually has two, one for the bills and one for the cards. seems to work well... and as a follow-up to the night-light saga (in case anyone is curious): Finally on the second to the last day of our vacation, he decided it was pointless to have a night-light...

    ok this is bad... I read this as "I'd LIKE to see my stuff bent/broken, and feel it digging into my thigh." and I thought, boy, that doesn't sound like One Brow at all!!! LOL :)

    Stupid Pet Peeves

    LOL! So he can see where he’s aiming. At home there are street lights that keep our house light enough, plus there’s a window in the bathroom. And it’s familiar territory. Now we’re in northern Michigan and when it gets dark, it’s REALLY dark.

    Stupid Pet Peeves

    Ok so now it’s time for an actual pet peeve. Or maybe just a bit of quirky behavior. And bigb as an electrician might get a charge out of it (ha ha) So when we travel, my husband brings a little plug-in nite-lite that he plugs in to an outlet in (or near) the bathroom. Now we’re at a cottage...
