the guy in the neighboring cubicle likes to whistle.  :(

 

which also brings me to my second annoyance, this time with myself:  I have tried very hard over the last few months to find the whistling charming, but it's still just grating.  I guess I have to face the fact that I'm crotchety.  :(

No you don't! If he's not your boss tell him to fucking stop it. It's incredibly impolite and completely inappropriate in an office situation.

the whistler has been joined by a second whistler, often in dissonant tandem. The second whistler is my boss, so there's really nothing I can do about it. It's not like we're a loud office where the whistling goes unnoticed.

I went to the DMV to get a learners permit this morning. That was the first annoyance: that although my UK license is perfectly OK for driving in the US (as long as I’m not a resident), it is not suff

My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

You should become a whistle blower. Ka-boom!

I think my office is trying to kill me today. Paint/varnish fumes have been circulating around our area this afternoon, and I managed to bang up my knee real good on the side of my desk. So now I'm dizzy and in pain.

Someone smashed one of the window panes at the front of our house last night. They didn't manage to get in, mainly because our lovely old window frames are painted tightly shut. Even if they had the alarm would have gone off. But still, I had to spend this morning cleaning up glass, filing a report with the police, warning the neighbours and ringing glaziers, which made me late for work. :(

I'm sorry to hear that, Ms J.

 

I noticed that some older houses in our area have what look like plexiglas inserts on the outside of the ancient glass. I believe they provide some additional security, and also form a barrier to wind intrusion, etc. Light, of course, passes through without impairment.

 

Additional thought. Errant baseballs wouldn't be a problem, either

Moving. From where does so much shit accumulate? Is that correct grammar?

The only good thing about moving is the amount of junk you purge. For the first few months in your new place you have this amazing sense of order and freedom . . . then you start warehousing useless shit again.

I read somewhere that three moves is the equivalent of one house fire, in loss of possessions.

 

Now, if my BF would only lose his comic book, coin, and basketball card collections, we'd be all set!
