Dear people having a party somewhere I cannot locate to yell at you (aren't you lucky),

It's Saturday night, and thus I am somewhat more forgiving of your party lasting until 4 am. Although given that you are not in my courtyard where I thought you were, perhaps your music is a wee bit loud.

No, what really bugs me, what has kept me awake since I woke to use the bathroom an hour ago, what has prompted this livejournal post --

is the fact that you have been playing one song on infinite loop!!

Please to be getting more music.

Much brain-scrubbing,
She who will be hearing that music for days.

Dear space-hog,

I don't care how big you think your thing is, your legs do not need to form a 90-degree angle with each other. Close your legs and stop taking up two seats.

Squished,
Me

Dear Universe,

If you are trying to tell me something, could you possibly find a less painful way to do it?

Ow,
Me.


Dear Angelinos,

Once upon a time, someone did a study of US cities to find the "nicest" ones. Not customer-service nice, but helping-your-fellow-man nice. They staged stuff like lost wallets, dropped & scattered papers, tripping and falling, struggling to get through a door with their hands full, and so on. At the time, I was mostly pleased that New York topped the list, confirming what New Yorkers already knew -- New Yorkers are really nice, friendly people... as long as you aren't wasting their time. Which is why people think they're rude -- the rest of you are slowpokes.

Right now, though, I'm contemplating looking up that study again, because I have a sneaking suspicion that Los Angeles ranked dead last.

Decidedly no love,
She of the dual icepacks

(and the explanation: I tripped twice today. Once while politely shifting to the side so that someone could pass me on the very narrow bit of sidewalk, and I stepped right on the sidewalk edge. The grass was very soft, and I turned my ankle and down I went. The person I had been accomodating walked right by me without looking at me. The second time I was crossing the street and stepped up onto an uneven bit of curb -- same ankle, same turn, same result. The person behind me actually stepped over me. Thanks. REALLY feelin' the love here, Los Angeles!)

So, five hours on a plane. I'm used to it, but this time I encountered three people that made my flight a lot less pleasant.
