Went online to pay my car insurance (I pay half now, half in 90 days). Changed my usage profile and added a note that I've retired and no longer drive daily. Ins. Agt. emailed me to come in and discuss a lower rate.
@charmcitygavin, formerly from Baltimore, now in SF, started a whole Thing when he mentioned he couldn't find Pizza Fries anywhere. Turns out nobody had heard of them except Baltimore folks. Is this true? Have you ever had Pizza Fries? (They're just what you imagine them to be - fries topped with pizza sauce and cheese).
I spent all the years from Kindergarten through college and my first years of work under dress codes that did not allow girls/women to wear pants, jeans or trousers of any kind. It was a different world, but not a warmer one.
Thinking of hiring myself out as a proofreader for ebooks. If I charged a buck to correct every led/lead, discreet/discrete and grisly/grizzly mashup I'd probably have a nice vacation fund. My current favorite line is "He lied down on the bed."
It's the wind that's doin it. Gusty winds, blowing trash cans and stuff, sucking all the heat out of my bedroom because Skylights. I'm just hoping my WiMax stays on. Sometimes I lose it in wind because the signal tower gets moved.
Ran errands this morning, temp 45F. Bank - initiated new debit card at ATM. Tobacco Barrel for cigs, back home and got parking right in front of my house! and affixed new registration tags. Didn't have to de-snow my car because it had completely melted from car and street. How is it gonna be in the single digits by this evening?
So, what DO you call that little strip of grass between the sidewalk and the street? It keeps coming up in dialect quizzes, and I never know it because I live in the city, never had to refer to it. As in "Don't forget to cut the _______ when you mow the lawn."
I'd have fired @justinesacco long before this, based on her previous tweets re: "pharmaceuticals" and "tweeting while drunk". The "Brits have bad teeth" remark is the laziest possible form of humor. Surprised she didn't go for "How about that airline food?" People with no sense of humor should not attempt jokes.
