That would explain it. :biggrin:
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

Family who raid my Christmas baking to the point where I have nothing left to give my coworkers . . . will be up late tonight.
I haven't failed until I quit.

Not being able to find Mandarin oranges. Well, it's not really a pet peeve but I didn't want to start a new thread:) Seriously, though, where can we find them? They're always here before Christmas but I haven't seen any.

I just found some in bulk at Save-On-Foods Foods in West Kelowna. A bit pricey but very good.

I have been wondering where they went this year! The have been none in the Super Store. Save On has had some a while ago, and I bought 5 or 6 boxes a month ago, but now there's nothing but a few boxes left with half rotten oranges in them. Totally weird. I've had Mandarin oranges every Christmas since I was 5, but it looks like this year will be the first exception.

Pet Peeve;

As trivial as it seems it just irks me.

Time and time again I see it, does not even to seem the news source

The use of the (to me) non- word pleaded.

You can plead, enter a plea, or have pled.

Mission Save On has had them for awhile and we got some at Wal Mart yesterday.

Damn, it's against my religion to shop at Walmart, but I will have to make an exception today (Master Yoda, forgive me).

Here's a pet peeve of mine: You're trying to find a parking place at the mall and finally! There it is! As you look more closely you see that a driver has parked well over the line and effectively taken up two parking spots. You don't have a Smart Car to squeeze in there so you just start the hunt all over again.

They have lots of things that we buy there because they are a lot cheaper than anywhere else. Not just by a small amount either. When you save a couple of dollars per item it adds up fast.

People that have to make every thread they contribute to about themselves. Must be starving for some attention I guess.
Someone has to say it.
