When I started writing on a weblog, I was just stupid and naive enough to think that I was writing to the great, anonymous, faraway masses. That bit me in the ass pretty early on. Then I worked on being honest and authentic without being hurtful and blowing people's privacy. Now, I worry about writing about almost anything.
So, I miss this place.
But I'm going to rant about some stuff anyway. Some stuff that really bugs me and gets my ridiculu-meter revving.
- Outdated signs. When you drive into Winnipeg down St Mary's Road (which is now one of two ways, since the St Adolphe bridge went tets up, and the bridge leading through St Norbert got closed....sheesh. Speaking of things that are annoying. but I digress.) Just inside the city a mile or two is a sign for a manicure place that says: Spring Special! Well, that really bugs me because it's hardly spring anymore, is it. We never even got spring, not to mention summer. So, take down the bloody sign, or apologize, or something.
- The buzzer on my dryer. It's really loud, and goes on forever. It bugs me.
- Kids who lie for no apparent reason. They've got nothing to hide; nothing to fear; nothing but a love for the untrue. They make up stories about being able to see and measure the size of a mosquito's brain. They tell tales of being in particular dance classes, including their times and location, when they are in fact not enrolled in any dance whatsoever. They will lie about food, about clothes, about anything.
Now humour me. Give me three of your petty grievances.
