Current Annoyances

Posted by The Swollen Goi... on Friday, March 5, 2010

I will be updating this infrequently. I will sometimes repeat myself. Feel free to add your own current annoyances.

I'm beginning to like Adam54.

You might not be able to tell me this, but how long has your Global Politics presenter been speaking English? If this person acquired English as a second language fairly recently, I'd be willing to be more lenient in my criticism of their1 speaking ability than I would be otherwise.

My iPhone is pissing me off. Twice today it has, for no readily explainable reason, lost its media. When I open the iPod app, it tels me I have no media. However, said media is occupying space on the iPhone, and iTunes syas that it is in use (not as "other," but as "Audio" and "Video"). I've had to restore my iPhone twice tonight. Restoring nearly 1300 items (not to mention the apps) takes a lot of time.

You're only now beginning to like me? I'm beloved by all damn it!

I would guess he's been at it for 15ish years. He's a phD candidate (which gives me absolutely no hope for the phD standards of my school) in his late 20s/early 30s. He's originally from Hong Kong, and I think said he's been in the US since the late 90s.

And most importantly, I have a meeting scheduled with my advisor to discuss him on Monday. She's such a sweet lady, and I'm going to have to try my very best not to swear.

I've never despised a teacher this much. It's almost scary.

If only my advisor could change the Milwaukee Brewers travel schedule. Hrmph.

Here's an easy two-step solution to your issue:

1. Navigate your intuitive menu to the secret folder that contains all your files.
2. If that doesn't work, stop using Apple products.

Okay, I tend to be more lenient with Asians when it comes to learning English. English pronunciation must seem as impenetrable to the Chinese as Chinese pronunciation seems to Americans.

That still doesn't justify a syllabus that has no consistency with the proclaimed subject of the course.

Hi Adam. There is a lot of this happening over here in the UK. University education used to be free to everyone but the Government introduced tuition fees a few years ago. This has had a pretty dramatic effect on the establishment/student relationship recently as students have woken up to being the customer/consumer and are now, quite rightly, saying "I am paying for this, you WILL provide tuition up to what I class as an acceptable level!" and sub-standard lecturers and tutors are being rooted out.

Go and kick off about it. I imagine it is costing you A LOT to get talked at by this guy?

Well, yes and no. I personally am poor enough to get it paid for almost entirely via grants (which somebody has to pay for, just not me), but there are 80 other people in the class, and we figured out one night that it's costing each of them nearly $2200 to suffer through this.

While I have you here Dalty, do you know of anywhere I can watch the debate from last night online? I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to use the iPlayer, so I need to do some digging.

It was on ITV so check out their website. www.itv.com

I don't know if their player is geo-blocked. Surely somebody with too much time on their hands has put it up on YouTube?

Clegg did well, the Lib Dems have leapfrogged Labour in the polls. If Labour are pushed into third place so they don't even get to form the opposition then I think I will probably laugh so hard I will rupture something.

That's funny, Adam. I was just trying to talk my boss into renting a 12 passenger van and driving up to MN for a Twins/Milwaukee game, including an overnight drunken hotel stay.

Do it!!! The stadium is completely stunning, well worth a trip up. Not to mention it's been a couple years since my last drunken hotel stay, which is also worth a trip up.

Were you looking at the ones in May or are they coming later in the year too?

May is too soon, and I think they are unfortunately not playing in MN again. We're looking at St. Louis now.

Thursty, apparently you are unaware of the magic pick-up line: "Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?" It never fails.

I am not conventionally scary in the way that would prevent people from fucking with me at first glance. It's in the getting to know me that suggests the payback wouldn't be worth the momentary pleasure gained by doing something so monumentally stupid as knocking me out to get a piece of ass.

Besides, what fun would an unconscious kah be anyways?

My immediate thought when I read this sentence was "...not even Jake is inappropriate enough to go THERE, right...?"

My next thought was "....it's Jake. Of course he is."

Don't let me down Jakey.

That is but the beginning! Grandma on fourth stroke in 7 days, definitely on her way out. Dad with serious medical issues which means it needs almost all of my mothers time giving care, which is really taking it's toll on her in a very bad way. Plus previously discussed issues. The path of my life currently seems strewn with cowpats from the Devil's own satanic herd!!!
