    I don't necessarily snooze, but I set at least three alarms, because ZMAs ruined me.

    I wear shorts when ever i can!
  • Just thouht of one.

    Go to a concert and see people wearing brand new denim jackets with all the band patches on them.  The only time this jacket sees any wear is going to the one or two shows a year that they attend.

    Rock on!

    Another show observation/pet peeve:
    Beer farts. I am short. At shows, all I see are shoulders, backs and asses. Standing in the green ass fog is terrible. Please, let the short people breathe!

    I hate the snooze button.
    Really, what’s the point? If you set your alarm for 6:00 and hit snooze 3 times before getting up, why not set your alarm for 6:30 instead?
    It's a time-taking process for me to wake up, and the snooze button is one of the greatest inventions ever in my experience. I cannot hit the alarm and spring out of bed in one go.  Most mornings I don't even realize that I hit the snooze the first time, it's just a subconscious reaction. The second time the alarm goes off is usually when my awareness starts to kick in but I'm not awake so I'll snooze a 2nd time. Then when the alarm goes off the third time I get up & start getting ready for work. For me, setting the alarm a half hour later would just start that process a half hour later.
    Ditto. I NEED the snooze. Alarm goes off the first time, it's the "Oh fuck, noooooooooooooooooooooooo" stage of waking up. Snooze for real - I go half back to sleep. On the second round, I am able to face reality better, and really start pulling out of sleep mode. Snooze but not really - I am awake enough to start thinking about the shit I need to do that day. By the next time the alarm sounds, I'm more anxious about what I need to get up and do than I am tired, and that gets me out of bed. :lol:
    All I can think about reading this is that if you didn't happen to be this way, you would think it was totally irrational and dumb and it would be a pet peeve to you lol

    and if it's 38 degrees your legs are cold. don't even try to tell me they are not.  it's absurd to wear shorts in cold weather.

    I used to wear shorts year round.  As long as my upper body was warm, I was fine.  These days, I'm too old & way too cold for that shit!  I hate everything under 80 degrees now.  I do refuse to wear pants from April 1 - October 31 though.
  • HughFreakingDillonHughFreakingDillon HeadstoniaPosts: 25,911
    there's a guy in winnipeg who hasn't worn pants since 2001. During the CFL western division finals of that year, Winnipeg Blue Bombers were heavily favoured to win the Grey Cup, and we were handily winning this game as well. The guy made a friendly bet with his friends he was watching the game with that he wouldn't wear pants again until the Bombers won the cup (he was wearing shorts that day, and it was November). Then, near the end of the game, our quarterback's arm got broken. Championship game the following week, we have a new QB that has never played an actual CFL game. We lost the grey cup game and still haven't won it. The last time we won it was 1990. (BEFORE TEN CAME OUT).  In an 8-10 team league (depending on the year), we haven't won it in nearly 30 years. 

    and you all know what winnipeg winters are like. 

    hopefully we win the cup this sunday so the guy can wear some pants.

    now that's a great story other than not winning a title.  go Blue Bombers so that man can wear some pants

    It’s snowed today. I hate shoveling the sidewalk. Especially since we moved to a corner house and now have about 3 times the sidewalk as most. And if I don’t shovel almost as it drops it will usually freeze and becomes almost impossible. But then I risk a ticket or lawsuit. 
  • deadendpdeadendp Northeast OhioPosts: 10,080
    I thank you for shoveling your walk.  I realize that you kind of have to, but when we walked the mile to school, most people around here didn't shovel.  Would you like to know why?  In my city, if you leave the snow and someone falls, it is an act of God.  If you shovel it, they fall, then you and your homeowner's insurance get to enjoy a lawsuit because you are now liable.  

    My almost 16 year old child could come shovel for you.  It is one of her chores.  I'm happy to share.  :smiley:

    I hate when posters are too lazy to personalize their icon/avatar (?) and it’s the same default one as mine. So when I scroll through a thread I think I’ve made all these comments when I see my generic picture.

    I've been away from the boards for a few months, so to welcome myself back in true form, I dug this thread up instead of posting to a positive one 😜😜

    People who aren't "morning people"...
    The position of the hands on a clock do not ever entitle you to act like a grumpy asshole, get your shit together!
    On a related note...
    People who "can't function without caffeine" and are "always tired" suck it up buttercup, and maybe if you didn't drive coffee all day you might get some decent sleep?  Go figure.

    gambo! It’s good to see you. I hope you and your family are all healthy. 

    My mom used to be one of those (maybe she still is?) - when she was in the hospital ages ago, she actually went through bad withdrawals without caffeine.

    I haven’t touched coffee for almost ten years :)

    Ha.  My pop was the only other adult I have lived with/around for any length of time who was like I am in the AM.
    Sure, I don't love to get out of bed at 4:00AM on those days....but I fucking love to get up and get going early.

    i love waking up and spending as much time as possible in bed while still awake/half awake. especially in cold weather. super comfy. 

    just before i quit years and years ago, i'd wake up, light up a cigarette, and lie there inhaling the toxins like a fucking rock star. LOL it was disgusting.
