Things that are currently annoying me

The fact that those Beaver bastards beat Cal yesterday. It's great that Cal finally lost, but did it have to be to the Beavers? God I hate them. This is not a victory for me, whatsoever. Frankly I am speechless. Don't even know what to say. I'm just sick about it.

Along those lines, I love my boys, really I do (meaning the Cleveland Browns - sorry, quick turn to the NFL), and we even just beat Miami today. Always good. But the killer is that our quarterback is Derek Anderson. Yep, a Beaver. Fuck.

So for a while there the school zones in this town changed to where the speed limit was 20 mph no matter when. They keep changing them because it can be kind of ridiculous depending on where the school is, and one such school zone is right on Scholls Ferry Road on my way to work. Used to be 20 mph from 7am to 5pm, then 20 mph all hours all days, and now there is a light above the 20 mph sign that indicates "when lights flash". I drive by there between 7am and 7:30am depending on how quick I get out the door, and the light is never flashing. So why does it annoy me? Because the light isn't flashing, and the cars in front of me are STILL going 20. It's a 35! For the love of Pete take advantage! If you get pulled over, and this is a big IF, because the light isn't flashing, just tell the cop the LIGHT ISN'T FLASHING! I swear the root of all my problems is always going to be the drivers in this city.

The new TV season is in full swing, and with it comes a bunch of new shows. It's like week 3 or something, and it bugs me enough to put it in this post when the TV announcers say, like, Catch an ALL NEW EPISODE of "Back To You"! Well duh, of course it's a brand new episode... there is only one other episode besides the one you are announcing and what does it say about the show if they run that one again?

That Ditech commercial is still killing me. Seriously, people aren't smart.

I pay for HBO and never watch it because nothing is on. The minute I cancel it, everything will be on. My DVR is broken and I will lose everything on it that I can't watch anyway because it's broken, but I don't want to call them to fix it because I know I will lose those shows saved on it. And while it is completely useless to me right now, I am still paying for it.

The elevator in my building is painfully slow and there is that guy on the 4th floor with the dogs. Huge, furry, slobbery dogs that get hair all over the place and smell really bad this time of year because of the rain. Getting on that painfully slow, wet-dog-smelly elevator sucks. Bad. The other day I almost fainted. You think I'm kidding.

That's all I have for now. I know I have been remiss in posting, so I thought I'd throw something up. I'm a little drained right now to be too insightful.

So first of all I just want to clear up something you said there at the end, did you really throw something up? HA
..the dog thing, you have a point. Nothing is worse than wet hairy dog.
Lastly, that's a pretty small list you gave us there Joycie, good thing I didn't write this blog!
