Bah!!

Feels like: cantankerous
Just a couple of things. Nothing big or serious or even noteworthy.
Hmm.. not my best intro ever but what the hell...

I am amazed. It's either that or I just don't get people sometimes.
Take for instance any number of people who have posted in the montreal community.
People post the stupidest things there; stuff like: Where can I get my passport renewed?
To me it's pretty obvious that you would likely get your passport renewed at the passport office. And I'd further venture to suppose that it's probably located at the same address where you got you first passport. Government offices don't tend to relocate all that often, y'know?
But that's not the bit that's got me scratching my head, really.
I mean yes, it confounds me as to why people would ask such a question to a community when it would be simpler yet to google canadian passport office but what I really don't get is why people would actually take the time to do all this persons thinking for them and answer the post. Politely. And informatively. I boggle.

Maybe I'm just a sour old curmudgeon. Maybe I am rife with cantankerousness but I just don't get it.

Probably am, actually.

I'm on the metro, reading "People Skills". I'm hoping that someone will notice and read the cover so that I can make a face at them. I actually think that would be kind of funny... in an ornery kind of way.

Yep, I think you're right. makes me sad.

Also in the yep department; yep we watched The Izz... I am aching to get it back to you (tomorrrrrow!) coz I hate borrowing for extended periods of time. - Makes me feel guilty and eurrrrh. And yep you can definitely borrow the book. :)

Arrr!

We're on the same wavelength today. You're not supposed to eat on the metro here but people continue to do so. It makes me so angry and I don't know why.

Now, remember: We need the Ark B people or else we'll all be wiped out by that virulent disease from a nasty telephone booth.
