My team at work when I ask my manager for the rest of the day off.

JR-"Let me check with LW, can Mike take the rest of the day off?"
LW-"I was actually wondering if I could go home too, it's hot outside"
JR-"Yeah me too, I'd check with MS (his boss) but he already texted me this morning he wasn't gonna make it today"
LW-"Yeah, I have errands to run before rush hour"

Now I just have to wait til tomorrow to go to Lover's Leap. Ugh.

Which gear to buy?

Which route to climb?

Add bolts or don't add bolts?

This thread is not unique.

Just about everything on this site is a first world problem.

But I still enjoy it.

For which gorgeous miss should I root for in the Miss USA Contest?

And when the Yahoo screen lights up with the news that Miss RI has won before the show has hardly gotten underway in my living room, how should I react?

Boycott Rhode Island, the state with one of the highest unemployment rates.

They need the hype, it seems.

This comment, viewed by Australians, will read differently :-)

"root" fer the one who looks most like a real girl.

Forget button pushing. The real horror is being able to go out and buy
anything you want. Stores and dealerships fully stocked from coast to coast.

Its like being a god with a credit card.

The compressor in my wine cellar is making that weird ominous noise. Again.

Went to the bathroom at work. On the way back to my office had the desire to get some tea. Because I thought there was tea in my office I passed the kitchen without getting it. Got to my office and couldn’t find any tea there, so had to walk half a rope length back to kitchen to pick some up. Terrible day. It could of been worse though, if we did not have any cookies around here neither.

speaking of mirin... I can't believe the price has gone up to $44/quart bottle. I can afford only two of them now. SushiFesterers will have to suffer...

it's a dry year, and i determined neither to water nor mow my lawn. the lawn includes things like common mallow, peppergrass, dandelion and wood sorrel, all quite edible, so i've let them live their annual cycles and harvested when appropriate. however, the lawn looks a horror. my valley neighbors tend to mind their own business about it. one even got curious about the mallow harvest. but i soon had a steady barrage of caballeros del cespéd come a-knocking, telling me in not very good english that they would be oh so happy to fertilize my lawn for me.

fertilize? with all that good stuff growing in it i need to fertilize?

never mind, my spanish isn't good enough to express the complex issues involved. then a memory came to me. you had to live through the 60s:

¡cuba si! ¡yanqui no!

i dove for the spanish dictionary.

¡pradera si! ¡cespéd no!

i posted this on a small, discreet postage stamp-sized piece of paper next to the front doorknob. i haven't had a knock since.

(look it up, first worlders, you need to get into this.)
