School. Your imagination must have gone rainbow-colored what with everything that school life is. Let me cut to the chase - it's great to graduate.

Monday Mayhem: Ticked off
Welcome to Monday Mayhem. This is indeed the coolest place to be on a Monday. Today we are going to share what ticked us off about. What a great way to vent! Be sure to have fun!

1. What made ticked off the most yesterday? a headache

2. What ticks you off about your local mail service? Hollow parcels. And as if it's not jarring enough the letter that tells you what to expect in the parcel arrives slashed. That's corruption, third-world style.

3. What ticks you off about the opposite sex? Some of them 'care too much' they invade  privacy, threaten independence and ruin plans. 

4. What ticks you off about eating out? Lack of coordination between servers and chefs or is it zero understanding or deliberate ignoring of a request? In the land of chili patches, this scenario is normal:

Guest: pointing to the food on the menu, mai sai prik, dai mai ka? (is it possible not to have chili in it?)
Server: Nods and says dai ka (yes, it's ok)

Minutes later your food comes wafting to your table all biting red with hot-as-hell peppers. Btw, you can't, nor are you supposed to return it. They think it's your fault.

5. What ticks you off about the internet? When it goes off and the provider does not fix it right away. I mean hello... the clock is ticking and you are charging me.

6. What famous person really ticks you off? That pinched nerve in the House of Representatives. She doesn't tick me off. I just wasn't frowning either when the Justice Department placed her on the immigration watch list. Ouch.

7. What ticks you off about people on the road? Unnecessary honking of horns

8. Name something about politicians that ticks you off. Suddenly they need an urgent medical procedure when trial is in the offing or a conviction is imminent.

9. Tell us about a story you have recently heard that really ticked you off. Snooty and ignorant is about a little, cross-eyed ghostwriter naively tweeting how the white wine at a state dinner sucks and that she is asked to edit the president's speech while she is buying make-up. Now I shouldn't be embarrassed to visit Vietnam.

10. Are you feeling less ticked off now? You were right. It was good to vent. I had fun.

#5 - exactly and you know if it's you on the other side of that they would be right up your butt wanting payment.

Venting can be fun!

Did you graduate? I haven't been by your blog in ages! How you been, girl?

It feels good to vent, doesn't it? There are so many famous people that annoy me. I wouldn't even know where to start! Maybe alphabetically? By last name or first?

Sometimes you just need to get it out. And I vaguely remember that feeling of graduating!

Aloha!

Graduating is exhilarating, isn't it? :)

It's excellent to vent - much better than keeping it all bottled up! :)

Smile, I Love This Road so Just Breathe - MMMM

@Denise and Dolly, no I haven't. At least not yet. I mean if you count Phd.

@Blogger Broadcast, we thought similarly about this week's theme. I was sure I read school for August 15th.

@Harriet, I wish he knew it too. It's getting rather tiresome (not to mention annoying) to watch my privacy fly out my porch each time....

@Jamerican Spice, has it been that awhile for you? It's great to reminisce something nice :)

@Stacy, yes it is!
Oh to be young again! I thought the theme was school too then I kept seeing freebies. Oh well. Hope you have a great week!

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
