People who constantly get out of their seats during a movie. We went to see Godzilla yesterday, and this one guy kept getting up and taking his kids, one at a time, to the bathroom or something. They must have gone at least 3 times each.

I went to Nordstrom's today to find out what a 32C or 30D bra actually looks like (the alleged size I'm "supposed" to be wearing). You've got to be kidding me. There is no way I can breathe in a 32-inch band. I can barely squeeze into a 34, regardless of what the tape measure says. So I'm sticking with 36As since I don't actually have much to support anyway, and no cup sizes or bands or straps actually sit properly on me because of my bizarre body configurations. Bra shopping is such a horrible experience and makes me feel like a freak. I'd rather wear what someone else deems an "ill-fitting" bra than put myself through that.

Every woman is a freak when she's trying on a bra.

In the third world, that's not a problem, but a chance to plant more next season.

LTTAM - When I am putting sweetener from packets in my coffee, and I drop the paper packet into the wet stuff at the bottom (I put in sweetener first, so I do not have to waste a stirrer).

I guess the fact I keep mistaking 'first world problems' for 'little things that annoy me' means I'm spoiled?

Is an emoji the same as an emoticon? And if so, why a different term?

I don't really know if they are technically different. I just couldn't remember the word emoticon at the time I was posting.

I heard someone use it in the radio, and it was confusing to me, as I had never heard or seen emoji before.

I desperately need new bras, but I gained about 10-15 pounds over winter, which was enough that my clothes still (mostly) fit but my bra size is a little off. I was planning to drop some money on properly fitted bras at a lingerie store with a good reputation for fittings, but I don't want to until I get my act together and drop back down to a more comfortable a size/shape. I should really just get over myself and at least buy some cheap-ish bras that mostly fit.

They're very closely related and pretty much synonymous in many circumstances. I guess technically speaking emojis are a type of emoticon available on certain devices/phones and via certain operating systems.

I've twice now had what looks like a dodgy phishing "security scare warning" pretending to be from Norton Anti-Virus randomly pop up in the corner of my screen, asking if I had any Android devices and warning that I should click to protect them.

The first time I was in a browser so I assumed it was a phishing ad, although I wasn't looking at any dubious sites so it worried me a little that it had even appeared. The second time, I initially thought the same thing, then realised I was looking at Google Earth. But I had Firefox open in the background so maybe the ad had come from there in a new window - or maybe it was malware itself.

Then I looked at the toolbar, and realised that it wasn't a fake Norton Anti-Virus warning. Bloody Norton Anti-Virus itself is popping up this random, badly-styled, irrelevant security scare ad that looks exactly like the kind of phishing attempt that any of us with any sense have long since known to avoid. I really hate anti-virus software... if only viruses weren't worse... It looks dubious enough that I didn't even dare click the "don't show this again" link. Next time it appears, I'll run Task Manager to make sure it's legitimate and then do so.

Norton and McAfee both have basically become malware. The worst are when they partner along with legitimate updates, like java or Adobe and you have to be paying attention to deselect it on the update or it will install along with the update. I just ordered a new laptop (having done my old one in with a glass of Vino Verde) and McAfee came preinstalled despite my having told HP not to do so. It's main screen is using scare faux warnings, reporting that two trojans were removed since last scan, despite there being nothing in the logs and giving a scan date of mid-May when the machine was built in July. I'm going to uninstall it and just download something else.

Just because it's one doesn't mean it can't be the other. As far as I'm concerned, you can continue to post similar complaints in both lists.

Very little thing that annoys me: gas stations that let their windshield buckets go dry.

That's more than a little thing.

Yeah, I've grown a bunch of plants from seed and I'd be pretty mad if anyone vandalized any of them.

Vihno Verde (I spelled it wrong initially).

An appellation but not a specific varietal. Meant to be drunk young or while it's still "green." It's Portuguese and all Vihno Verdes come from the Minho region of Portugal. It's white, with a tiny bit of sweetness and just a little bit of effervescence. It's pretty wonderful on a warm summer evening. Just not so wonderful for laptop computers.

Lots of people are freaking out over one of my phobias. Somehow, that makes me feel worse about havig the phobia.

I've had a long time phobia about Ebola epidemics. I have to check the WHO website reglarly just to reassure myself that there is no outbreak. Now that there is an actual epidemic, I don'thave that comfort and patients being brought here sent me into a full panic attack. I don't really feel like I can tell people that without being lumped in with all the people who just now noticed the disease.
