Don't you worry about those rumours.
I've seen so many of them that at least one must be real !

It's like the stars ...
One of them must have a planet with life on it !

And it won't be. Now that the holidays are over nobody cares, and by next December everyone will be in too much of a shopping craze to notice. It's a conspiracy, I tell ya, between the media, shopping centers, and elves (the latter would be jobless and homeless if the truth came out).

It only gets worse if you do.

Unless you go extreme, biking shouldn't be bad for your back, should it ?
I've raised my handlebar and that's helped. But I won't go extreme until they've finished cutting me to pieces

I hate it when a glide turns into a drift. In the parking lot at work.

On the bright side, I bump started in time.

I think he is still there, but flying sleighs pulled by airborne reindeer illuminated by nothing more than glowing noses have been banned by the growing menace that is "elf and safety".*

I blame Van Rumpuy, who is a regular annoyance in my household.

*EDIT - It was in the Daily Mail so it must be true.

Yes, but will it be intelligent ? You know, not like here.

We need to be told.

There are a few people around town that think their vehicle is a reindeer. You probably have the same in your area. Having clip-on antlers and a red "nose" in the grille doesn't mean you can "fly" down the highway, or pull a red trailer any better.



I'm not Scrooge-ing it up after Christmas, it just drives me nuts on a few levels: added drag is one. Another, is forgetting that said antlers are held-up by a window, and inadvertently rolling it down will result in unintentional removal, and possible damage to following vehicles (or delays by picking it up)

Then there's stick-on eyelashes...

At least plastic "chrome" molding and windshield wiper nozzles with LEDs have gone out of vogue.

Last week I saw a Cavalier with nice rims and I think after-market intake and exhaust, but the stock unpainted bumper. I would have painted the bumper and then spent the money on a good therapist.

I'm sorry he's become an annoyance to you , but we were just happy to get rid of him and keep him out of unemployment at the same time.


It just goes to prove that re-use is not always better than trashing something right away

No need for an apology, we have used the EU to get rid of quite a few of our no hope loser politicos as well over the past few decades..

In the long run he may serve a purpose in finally settling if the UK (and maybe some others) stay in the EU or leave, or whether it reforms.

Something that annoys me daily are what I call Drew Carey glasses.

It seemed like almost everyone at my school that wore glasses had the same black frames, although I saw two girls wearing "granny glasses" frames--without lenses!
