    Not being able to find ground beef that isn't 90/10 or leaner. GRRR!
    Major agreement there.

    And trying to find Fage within a reasonable driving distance. DOUBLE GRRR!
    My first visit to this new commissary was so frustrating because of that. They will not grind meat that is more than 6 percent fat! They can't even sell me some trimmings! I was told that it is government regulations for the commissary. They can't even sell me beef soup bones because they (gov't) won't let them cut them due to some idiot cutting his finger off and suing. UGH!!! I went in to buy some beef brisket for my dad and was told they just threw out 10 beef briskets because they were hitting their sell-by date. Hello, aged beef? What happened to freedom?
    I learned a valuable lesson with the first steer I sent to slaughter. I should have named him Hamburger and not Snookers.

    Girlfriend, I have a feeling that if you went to the park you will find someone that would happily workout with you!!

    Trying to imagine a shopping environment where either of those things are possible. Failing.

    Most crap grocery stores are full of chubs of ground beef as fatty as 80/20 (though I wouldn't recommend any of them already packaged as chubs). Worse to worse, however, you can grab some good fatty chuck and have them grind it fresh for you (if you call in the morning and show up in the afternoon they can set aside however many pounds of fat you'd like to add to that).

    As for the Fage, it might just be because I live just outside the Washington DC metro area that it is so common around here, but even Wal Mart carries it anymore. If you want a case or more most grocery stores would special order it for you even if they don't regularly carry it.

    Yeah it's a bit strange. There's even a supermarket that carries many international items (central american crema yum!) yet they don't have greek yogurt? BS!

    The upstairs neighbors are having sex on a bed right over the living room with really squeaky springs. I'm thinking of leaving a can of WD-40 on their doorstep. Fortunately he's a sprinter.

    Hah, I had upstairs neighbors like that when I lived in an apartment. They also fought a lot. I used to bang on the ceiling with a broom handle....

    Back when we were going to college, we were in a semibasement apartment and our bedroom window looked out at the pool. You haven't lived until you've heard (subcontinental) Indians whooping and hollering in the pool at 4 in the morning before your 0730 senior project lab final.... :/
