Work related: People who are so impatient about food related events that they whine and cry like toddlers. You know when you arrive at work, eat breakfast and then there is a lunch planned. Bring a snack so you aren't a raging fury when the food is put out for everyone. It makes me not want to participate in group lunches. And these people are in their 40s - 60s.

On campus yesterday a few times, I noticed two new fashion trends.
Trend one: Harem pants and or jumpsuits. Skin tight just above the knees and down, and loose above the knees with dangling hip pockets. Even on the very fit young women wearing them, they were extremely unattractive.

Trend two: Lace shorts. Some of the lace shorts aren't lined, so you know exactly what the wearer has under them. I'd like to smack the designer that created them.

Job searching  and the fact that apparently entry level is no longer a thing! I graduated law school in May and I knew the market wasn't great but I was thinking there would be some jobs available that wanted fewer than five years of experience but apparently not in the area I want to go into.

SnarkyDiane would have been tempted to run up to them and shout "STOP!  Hammertime!"
I would have been sorely tempted to, even outside the snark.

It's 90F out right now. I can't stand seeing teenagers wearing hoodies and sweatshirts. It makes me sweat just thinking about it! (I'm aware this is quite petty, which is why I never say it aloud to anyone and am posting here instead.)


During the school year I understand why kids do this. School buildings can often be very cool to cold. I usually have Loren and Brett bring a 2nd layer if we are going to be inside a commercial building part of the day.

I'm exactly six feet tall.  Why does that bug me?  Because that put every doorknob in the house *exactly* at waist level... perfect for snagging pockets, apron strings, and belts.
