I am still trying to finish work from last week! So ready to shut down the computer and sit in bed and read until I fall asleep.

I feel completely justified in drinking a beer while I work, though. So upside.

Has the PPK been less active lately, or am I just spending too much time here?

I have been trying to figure that out too.

Although what does it say about my use of my time that I can tell you when the peak posting times are?

I would also say that it feels like it has not been quite as active recently!

I can never tell because most of the posting happens when I'm asleep.

A week from today, I'll be stuffing my face at VegFest before heading to London for Ethiopian food and The Cure. And my old flatmate will be in London at the same time, so I get to see her too. I am excite.

do people refer to the cargo space in a hatchback as the trunk? i've never heard anyone call it anything other than "the back." this is very important research for a book i'm working on.

I have a hatchback and have only ever called that space "the back." It's so not a trunk.

I would probably call it the back but wouldn't think much about it if someone else called it a trunk.

I've only ever heard one person call that area the trunk (and I freaked out because they said they had put their dog "in the trunk"!). Other than that, I've heard it called either the back, the way back, or the cargo area.

I feel like a trunk is a space that's fully separate from the rest of the vehicle. We had a hatchback for most of my childhood, and like others have said, we just called it "the back."

If you need to get up at 5am, it's really smart to put all your bedding into the wash at 8pm the day before.

Brian and I saw two people being total passive dicks tonight.

We went to the grocery store, and it's near the college so it's 24 hours, but at a certain point it's down to one human checker and the u-scans. It's right about nine when we go towards the checkout, and the u-scans have a line so we go over to the one human checkout. The lane next two us has two women waiting, no checker, no light on. So clearly they're being helped in some special manner, right?

We get in line and there are only two people in front of us, a couple stops, looks at us and looks at the lane next to us where the checker has come back but still there's no light on, and they get in that lane. I even hear the dude's wife say, "Maybe we should get in the lane with the light on." So the checker finishes helping those two ladies, and leaves. He looked pretty young so it's safe to assume he got off at nine and was already a little over. Guess what that couple does.

They unload their entire cart onto the belt, go to the end of the belt, and just shoot eye daggers down towards the girl operating the u-scan. The open lane we're in is the first lane, so there's at lest 6-7 lanes between them and the girl has the bottom of her register open and is pulling out the receipt tape so obviously, she is paying close attention to these two.

We were done by then, but I really hope that what happened is our checker was like, "Hey, would you like to bring your stuff over here to my OPEN lane?"

Good/bad-ish day, so it goes here.

Fred and I have been looking to move to another area of town. After weeks of sad Craigslist postings and much worrying, we finally found one we liked, saw it, filled out an app, and were approved! We will be right smack dab in the middle of a bunch of friends, have long, but easy rides to work (whether via train or bike), and be in a much safer, more neighborhood-y area of town, with an awesome park for riding/running/hang outs. Awesome! We found out we were accepted about 5 minutes before I had to leave for work today, so I got to gush about it to everyone. We sign the lease tomorrow.

Then I left work, only to find that my bike seat was stolen at some point in the night. Stupid. I was able to get on the last bus home, so that was good. It was the first time I've put my bike on the front of the bus, so it was a little harrowing and confusing, but it worked. I need to overhaul my bike after the winter, but this really isn't the way I wanted to do it.

Also, our internet at home has been out for at least a week. It was finally fixed today, right as I was leaving for work. It's been a weird week without it, but all the reading I did instead was pretty awesome. Still, I can now download all the things and post more nonsense on the internet. Yay!

I really need someone to tell everyone who keeps asking me to do thing after thing after thing for my job and then my other jobs and then socially and life and health and stuff and research and school and family that I need like maybe at least half a day off. Half a day to not check any email...I'll even clean my entire house, just give me a mental break pleeeeease I am so tired. Maybe this is PSTHFNJKHUID or whatever problem but seriously I feel really loopy and mentally exhausted.

I call it a trunk or hatch (if it's a hatch), whatever comes to mind first.

But you wanted clean sheets so you could "look forward" to getting up at 5am! (I am familiar with that line of thinking <3)

Just realized that I've been living in the same place for the longest continuous period since I was 13 (I am now almost 29). ...No wonder grounding and stability have been so much on my mind.

:( hugs!

this is why i haate the first world problems thread. it's so stupid. you're having a legitimate complaint, but then you feel like you can't complain about it because some people don't have fresh water somewhere? it's totally possible to complain about something and also realize that other people have different/worse problems than you.

you totally deserve a day off! i'm sorry your job is so stressful.

That actually was the point of that thread...so that people would feel like they had a place where they could complain about stuff like that, while also realizing that other people have different/worse problems. Ultimately we all agreed to change the title of the thread so people would disassociate the complaints thread from the problematic terminology (though I didn't actually come up with the weird string of letters so I have no idea what it stands for anymore). Calling it "first world problems" was wrong, I've acknowledged that numerous times since I made that mistake, which was a mistake I made like 4 years ago and hopefully have grown as a person since then. If I were creating that thread today I would definitely not call it "first world problems".

I think the string of letters is so confusing and I forget what the thread is actually meant to be because the title doesn't mean anything to me. I wish it would get changed to something that makes sense!
