As nice as it was to be able to ride a single bus from my house to my sister's, it shouldn't take 45 minutes to travel between houses 2.5 miles apart. This is yet another example of Metro's inability to design routes that actually travel from the east to the west without also going north-south. ETA: btw, I get on a 67 route bus, and get off a 65 route (or vice versa, when I'm going home) despite sitting in the same seat for the entire trip.

Those have surpassed my loathing of the term "furbabies".

That's definitely the worst of the bunch. It sounds like something an untrained puppy might do on your rug.

Possibly the same people who think that the substance which can perfectly reasonably be referred to as shit, feces, dung or manure should be called, in serious news reports, "poop"; as if we were all in kindergarten.

There's a Ruffles ad playing every commercial break on Spotify that features the sound of people eating chips. ::shudder:: Guess it's back to my iTunes playlists.

In the same vein as crunching chips, I loathe the Betadine commercials, each featuring someone gargling for an extended time. Ew.

The landscapers are at it again. They're never come on a Wednesday before (Wednesday is my day off) so I was jolted out of bed at 8:30 AM by the sound of electric trimmers that I've come to associate with destruction of my garden. There's hardly anything left from last time and yet it's like they're told to decimate all foliage over 3 feet tall. By the time I got my robe on and ran out there, it was too late to save some of my bushes from being whacked. At least I managed to save my new begonia cuttings I just planted. This is one of the things I absolutely hate about a townhouse/condo HOA neighborhood. Most of the people who live here are retired, seasonal, or short-term renters, so they probably see it as a benefit to have the landscaping included. But I love doing my own landscaping, and I want privacy at least around my back patio if I can't have it in front of the house.
