Reasons to whine

I feel like "reasons to frown" is for more serious business, and "grind your gears" is for genuine, deserved anger.

This is for whining, especially about petty things. Complaints, bitching and moaning welcome.

My reasons to whine:

I'm back in school starting today, and it's a sort of orientation week. As usual, it's pretty pointless. I could be sleeping!

My sheese has a spot of mold on it! I opened it a couple days ago, and it's best by date is Aug 5. >:( (I cut that part off, and am now enjoying some sheese)

Though the expired registration was dismissed, without asking so that was cool, we all have to meet back next friday about the improper passing, when the pig, I mean officer, will grace us with his presence, as he most likely was hung over this AM from a long night of jagerbombs and wife beating last PM.

yes, because someone doing their job is, of course, a terrible person.

no really, what's the whole story with this? i didn't catch it.

It is not them in isolation, it is the whole system, all the roles together turn it into quite a farce. But I am sure the cop(s) you know and love are cool. Hell I have a real good friend who is one and he lets me call him a "pig" all the time....well not ALL the time.

Back story: I had to cancel my whole morning plans and go to court today on some (alleged!!) violations wherein my license may get revoked and the...um...officer didn't show up and instead of throwing it out the judge set a new date one week from now. What BS!!!

This reminds me of my saying: Never be the last to know that you radar detector is not functioning properly.

I don't actually know any cops personally. I just think it's a bit much that, even if this guy was a total d-bag to you, to rant about the guy being hungover and being a wife-beater.
'specially because wife-beaters tend to be charming and well-liked!

i'm going to this birthday party today for someone in my friend's family and after we're going to sublime (the best vegan restaurant in the world). i'm just nervous because EVERY time i go stuff like this people say stupid shit about being vegan. and i'm not in the mood to argue.

also, i saw an old friend yesterday who used to not eat animals (and now does) and she was saying how she could never be vegan (annoying) and how people should eat animals. WHAT, BITCH?! no.

People are going to say things about being vegan.  Don't worry about answering them seriously - it's a party, they're after banter, not serious discussion.  If, you know, you happen to slyly mock them during the banter, so be it.  (I work with scientists and get the what about yeast in bread question.  Yeast isn't an animal and they should know that.  I tell them to return their degrees.)

yeast is a fungi

(although it could have been classified as bacteria - they shift around its classification every so often)

In my school in the 60s and 70s we were told "Yeast is a single-celled animal."

But then in my grade school the teachers also differentiated between "animals", birds and fish. Reptiles and amphibians were also "animals", so they didn't mean "mammals", but birds and fish were something else, I guess.

My shoulder hurts.

And last night like an idiot (man) I left the brand new bag of raisin bran open on the counter and this morning it was overrun with ants. @#$#@@!!!!!!!! I have it poured into a pie pan and I hope that they are all going to crawl out to go back to whereever their black little raisin bran eating asses came from, thus I may be able to salvage some of it. Seems to be working. I only shop once every 2 or 3 weeks, so I need me some raisin bran quick.....

And as for ants, something else that *bugs* me on Wed. I had my laptop out on the hammock. It started to get really hot so I closed the lid and sat it under my hammock out of the sun. Picked it up, brought it inside, started typing snooty and snide messages on vegweb and.....what is that itching? It feels like my skin is crawling. Wait! There are ants all over my laptop, inside and out. Yep, I wish I was kidding!

yeast is totally a fungus, u guys.

Not that you should have known, vh. I think they have shifted yeast around in the past, and I think I remember hearing it was a protist before, which is no longer really a category and was basically where they shoved all the single-celled things that confused them

On the one hand, I liked being able to get a full nights sleep. On the other hand, waking up at 930 instead of 530 means that the day feels so much shorter. I tell myself I'll go to bed early tonight so I can have it both ways, and so waking up early next week doesn't feel so UNGODLY, but I know that won't really happen :p

my whine today:

I love that it's the weekend and that I'm not at work but I really want it to be a working day today so our solicitor and valuer can be working to make it absolutely completely definite that we will own this garden:

i agree with chaff that most cops are assholes... not wife beaters per say or anything but total dicks on a power trip and just plain rude...

a few weekends ago i was stranded in the middle of the night crying on a curb, the walk back to my friends house was like 2 miles and i was in a mini skirt, by myself at 3 am... a cop pulled up and said "are you ok?" i said "no i am stranded can i please have a ride back to my friends house it will take less than 5 minutes in a car"... he said "do i look like a fucking taxi cab?" and drove off...

really nice officer, hope i don't get raped walking through dark alleys by myself!

that is just 1 of my handful of experiences with police... total dicks... many of them are short too and have the whole little man complex going on

See I've already squandered all the good will created by the oat milk recipe....

Anyway, I wasn't speeding. The guy in front of me slowed WAY down (now I know probaly b/c he saw a cop) and so I go to pass him - it was dotted yellow, perfectly legal and safe. Well, he speeds up when I am half way around and it goes to solid yellow, about 2 seconds before i can get around him. Never broke the speed limit, no one even close to being in danger. No harm, no alleged harm, now I will be in court my second day on this Friday. Scam.

Ah, I see. It's one of those things that nearly everyone does, but occasionally someone does get caught. That's too bad. I hope traffic court turns out well for you (well, whenever you actually get to have the trial thing! hehe)

OK, whine time (tempted to ask for cheese to go with it but know I won't find it here)

I have a classic MIL/DIL relationship with DH's mom.  I can barely stand her, she can't understand why.  She is 84, no short term memory, in asst living.  Her daughter/best friend/roommate passed away almost 2 weeks ago now and as usual, I get delegated to deal with all the "stuff".  MIL scarfed up most of SIL's clothing and later realized a good part needed mending.  Then she realized her stuffed full closet (before "new" stuff) had mostly worn out stuff in it.  Sooooo    I have  been delegated to take MIL shopping for new clothes.  I don't know when she last bought clothes from some place other than a thrift store so she is in for major sticker shock.  Since DH is managing her money, he gives her cash spending money but she does not like going out to spend it.  She had been hording things for years so does not need much and is getting to the point where it is either spend money of Medicaid will take it to repay what they have paid for her care.  So, I have to convince a cheapskate to spend more than she realizes on clothing to replace rags she thinks are perfectly good ::)

Then trying to convince her that all her daughter's "collectables" are really just almost worthless nik nacks is another story.  Really, there is not a resale market for VHS and cassete tape.  Avon bottles are only valuable if new and in sealed boxes, not empty, dusty and missing sparkles.  Elvis collector's plates are only worth $10-15 dollars used instead of the $40 they cost new . . .

that sounds like my mom's future. except each year she does get rid of some of her old clothing, but her closet looks just as stuffed!
and she keeps everything, ever.
