It's great that Ticketmaster is no longer directing people to TicketsNow, though - the scalping site they own. Pat yourself on the back, Ticketmaster. You are a model of corporate accountability and good business.
2. how Great Lake Swimmers are playing a concert in Calgary while we are in Vancouver and a concert in Vancouver when we are back in Calgary.
3. how the newspaper delivery person has taken to tossing our paper into the bushes lately. When it gets delivered at all, that is. We used to have such a nice delivery person too, but I guess nobody wants to work outside at 5:00 on a winter morning for very long.
You know what was really great, though? Pyjama Day yesterday.
It was a nasty fucking day, icy and snowy with a biting cold wind. The Resident Offspring was a giant head of snot, and the Spousal Unit was working at home, so we all stayed home and watched four crazy-assed jack rabbits chase each other up and down the block for a good hour. It was way better than tv, and I felt like we were in an episode of Corner Gas.
Those rabbits are regulars around here, but I have never seen them move this fast before. They were airborne for a good 20 feet at a time, I kid you not. And then they played hide and go seek around our front porch and I wanted to let them in the house so that Sputty could play with them, but my suggestion was voted down. Spoil sports.
What's been grinding your gears?
