Day 1 - Ten random facts about yourself
Day 2 - Nine things you do everyday

Day 3 - Eight things that annoy you
Day 4 - Seven fears/phobias
Day 5 - Six songs that you’re addicted to
Day 6 - Five things you can’t live without
Day 7 - Four memories you won’t forget
Day 8 - Three words you can’t go a day without
Day 9 - Two things you wish you could do
Day 10 - One person you can trust


Only eight???

1) People who don't keep their word/do what they say they will do.
2) Printers. They seem to have some evil intelligence that springs to life whenever I interact with them: they print stuff landscape or backwards, create paper jams, and just generally become disobedient and contrary.
3) Tuvan throat singing. Mr Psmith has started practicing it and it's driving me maaaaaaaaad.
4) People who are unkind to animals. There is simply no excuse for that. You should be beaten with a rubber hose.
5) People who are anti-science. You have a brain for a REASON, people. It's not just filler to keep your head from imploding.
6) The rampant mindless idiocy that has allowed people like the Kardashians, the cast of Duck Dynasty, and every single person on Jersey Shore to become famous and rich.
7) Words like "irrespective" and "orientate." Also corporate buzzwords like "facilitate" and "synergy" and "leverage".
8) George W. Bush. I can't help it, his fact just makes me want to smack him. Plus he invaded a country that didn't bomb us.

And here's a bonus one: The bottomless gulf between library funding and football/basketball coach salaries.

I agree with so many things and especially number 4 and 6.

OMG those burn me so much.

Most of that. I must say I can't be annoyed by Tuvan throat singing because I have no idea what that is.

Try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DY1pcEtHI_w It's actually a pretty impressive skill to learn, but it's a bit...drone-y?

I think that 6 is the result of 5. Which is the result of your "bonus bugaboo". (Personally, I would do away with public money going to support high school and college sports altogether. Spend our taxes on education. If they want to play sports, they can find creative ways to raise money for it or just do away with it entirely and use their spare time to... I don't know... maybe study! I know... heresy!)

My condolences on 3. Have you tried duct tape?

THIS. YES.

Have not yet resorted to duct tape. Stay tuned, though...

Dang and I need to find a new printer for my laptop. I hated using printers at work but found my little tricks to working them.

My little trick involves (a) crying or (b) a baseball bat. What are yours?

lol the bat is fun but my tricks.

1. Know your feed. Ask before use where the paper feed is internally. 90% of jams are in a simple sliding door area.

2. Test print. Do 1 mock one especially when putting the original through a top printer slot that will spit it out elsewhere.

3. Get used to the main buttons. You don't need to know EVERY button. Just know your basics like main paper sizes so you know how to place your paper to copy (do a test print too), to knowing how to ask for multiple copies.

Hope that helps!
