    I have my dumbshit moments, but they aren't the overwhelming majority of my life. I also admit that I have dumbshit moments, as opposed to most of the rest of humanity, who believe that they can do no wrong.

      • Freaking raccoons!!! No offense Stabby - but do they have to kill my turkeys by reaching through the new enclosure's chain link fence (first night out mind you) and ripping their heads off? A whole turkey wasted so they could eat the head! And I couldn't even eat the rest because who knows what diseases the criture had. Back the the hardware store for more wire mesh. Grrrr!

        edit: I guess this puts me in with the 95% stupid people group getting duped by a raccoon!

        • Gripe: Corporate bullshit.

          I absolutely hate the social conventions in the office I work at. Everyone is too polite, as weird as that sounds. You say "thank you" after every single interaction with anyone, even when it doesn't make any goddamn sense in context. The receptionist asks, "Hi, hon, how are ya?" every single time she sees you, even if you just saw her (and answered the damn question) two minutes before - and it's the most impersonal, robotic rendition of social niceties I've ever heard. She'll walk into a room, say it while looking through a drawer for something, then leave the room before you even have a chance to answer. Of course contradicting the big boss is blasphemy - my degree is in English, and it physically hurts me to see how broken the grammar and syntax are in the copy he insists on sending out, but I can't say a damn thing about it. It wouldn't be so bad if I liked my actual job, but I hate it. It's soul-crushingly inane, but unfortunately it's all I can handle right now with the health issues I'm dealing with. I've been eating paleo/primal for 23 days, and have yet to see any difference in my symptoms at all. I feel like I'll be trapped in this terrible, mealymouthed place until the day I die.

                get/borrow an animal trap, put some bird seed in a cup in the back, wait

                next day, decide what to do with the little bastard
                beautiful
                yeah you are

                Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                    • A friend I have known for 6 years, whose boys were good friends with my boys just moved from here (Seattle area) to South Carolina. Which I understand but... I found out when she sent me a link to pictures of their new house. Finding out that way bugs me.

                      • Gotd: i don't get to see my son as often as I wish. We're close, but crazy schedules, distance, all make it hard to visit more than 1-2 times a year. But, he does call once a week or so.

                          In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                            Causation for sure. I definitely think the weather's horrible because you're bored.

                              Definitely possible. When I sing the sun comes out.

                              • My husband has failed to clear his prawn traps out of the yard (where they are taking up most of the usable space) for a month now. He has also failed to actually catch prawns with them, despite having a friend with a boat and despite having gone out with that friend on that boat 3 times in the last 2 weeks. Not amused.
