Top 5...

…things that have been annoying me this week:

...or to be more precise: things that were annoying my about 3 weeks ago when I started trying to write this post:

1. People who own shops (and have done so for many years) but pronounce Eftpos “eff toss” which is rather rude when you think about it.

2. Alannis Morisette: Rain on your wedding day is only ironic if you are marrying a drought stricken farmer who hasn’t seen rain for 5 years and it rains so much the car park at the wedding reception place gets flooded so your beautiful white dress gets very muddy, and you can’t rinse it clean because there is no water in the taps due to the extreme severity of said drought.

3. Cat Stevens.

...As you can see, I only came up with 3 things for my list. The problem is that I have been in far too good a mood to be annoyed lately which is Bad News for Blog. The reason for the good mood is that I have found myself a Tall Boy. This is perhaps somewhat ironic (Alannis, are you paying attention?) because I have been looking for a tallboy. Maybe it's not ironic, maybe it's just in the Bad Dad Joke category. It's hard to tell because definitions of irony don't ususally come with any information on the inclusion of wordplay and puns. Anyway, I am still looking for a tallboy because I need somewhere to put my clothes. While my Tall Boy does have drawers, they are not the kind you can put clothes in.

I define irony as Winona Ryder.

I have a tallboy. Care to swap?

I thought Cat Stevens annoyed me, but he did the soundtrack for Harold & Maude and that was quite pleasant.

Thankyou Juicebar. Who or what do you define as "enigmatic self contained bohemian" out of interest?
Jacob - no way! but nice try.
Red - I think short term is fine, but I just had excess. Also, I wasn't in charge of the cd player and I have some control issues that I am working on at the moment.

That Alanis lyric has pained me, actually physically pained me, for years. You've presented an excellent ironic scenario, and managed to help with that pain, and so I tip my hat to you.
