Only exception I would make for the fly if it was an amputee or something. Then I might offer a hand ;)

In the short time I've been home from work, I've gotten 3 calls from Out of Area, and 2 calls from Toll Free. I don't even know these guys.

Thankful for Caller ID. There's the phone again, another one from Out of Area. This is ridiculous. Heh. And another 3...

I am fuming mad at the city. I got an automated call this morning at 08h45 telling me that the "boil water advisory" was over as of 07h00 this morning. That's very nice. They forgot to tell me to boil my water! Maybe that's why Stirling has been having stomach issues and mine haven't gone away.

I phoned the city and they said that they had sent a letter and that the advisory had started Thursday! I didn't get a letter. I'm going to ask my neighbours if they got one.

Wait a second. You get a reverse 911 call to tell you not to boil your water but they sent a letter to warn you to boil water! That's ass-backwards.

Well, normally that would be backwards. But, we are having our water mains "rehabilitated". They probably switched us back to the main that got "rehabilitated", from the temporary water supply, so they would know in advance when they were going to do that. They say the water test results are good now.

I saw those mains. How much trouble would it have been to post SIGNS like they do when the exit ramp is going to be closed?

Where the h e double hockey sticks is my favorite paring knife???? Seriously! It was my Mom's and it's PERFECT for doing all manner of small things. Cleaning strawberries, doing beans etc from the garden. AAAARGH! This is frustrating.
