Are you unable to record two shows at once?



Did your electric toothbrush quit, forcing you to brush manually like some kind of animal?



Tell us all about it; Foo cares.

So, I'm looking for a Christmas present for my nephew, when I see

Oh, sweet! Model trains, rockets, RC cars, robots... And the place is huge! I've got a couple hours to kill. Heading inside and...

It's an arts and craft store. This is the most severe disappointment since Geraldo opened Al Capone's vault!

Quicken failed to download my dividend transfers to my MM account this morning.

I had to enter them manually.

My beach cruiser bicycle had a flat this morning, so I drove my car the 1 mile down to the doughnut store for an apple fritter, chocolate milk, and a large cup of coffee. Brought it all home and ate it while reclining on the couch watching videos posted on Foo.

I am not sure if I have room in my house for a 4th bike, unless maybe I sell the BMW so there is more room in the garage.

The stress is overwhelming.

I don't know which bike to ride. They're all wonderful !! Also if the weather is uncertain do I use the beater car, or the good car.

I have been forced back into the Stone Age due to Internet access problems at home. No internet access FOR A WEEK until a technician can get out to fix it! I actually was anxious to get back to work and out on the road because hotels would supply my web fix.

The gym in the hotel here in Whistler is kind of small. Also, they don't sell alcohol in the grocery store and we had to go to a different store for our booze....

We have those little 2 second blackouts a couple times a week. The microwave and such are annoyances, but when I lose my delay brew:

Is a battery back-up Mr. Coffee too much to ask here in the space age? Where have you gone, Joe Dimaggio?

You know that small tab on top of cereal boxes that is meant to help close the box after it's been opened? I just accidentally ripped it off the box this morning. I have no idea how I'm going to keep it closed now

I've received SO MANY boxes of chocolates that I have no idea which to eat first. The almond truffles? The dark chocolate covered marshmallows? The chocolate mints? Where?! It's boggling my mind.

My team is in the NFL game of the week, so it was moved to Sunday night.

Now I have to decide if I should use some of my sick time, or show up to work Monday a little bit tired.
