1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    It's the freaking button holes. The manufacturer didn't smooth them out so they fray the threads.

    I need to use reinforced threads, which my tailor doesn't have.

    I think it's the hole that isn't buttoned (the mouth hole) that's at fault.

    We are doing our rounds of the local private schools; our daughter enters Kindergarten next year and private school is kind of a thing around here. Anyways, it's sort of a daunting task; we are trying to pick a home for our kid for the next 13 years - we can always change, of course, but we want to try our best to get it right and not have to introduce a social x-factor changing schools midway through if possible. It's sort of a preposterous notion on the face of it, given that the high school is likely to completely change in the 9 years before she gets there. So the process is aggravating and frustrating to begin with.

    Anyways, what pissed me off today about it was: We met a really dynamic, energetic, intelligent, inspiring lower school head today. We went straight to his office on arriving on their gorgeous, college-like, idyllic campus. Talking to him about changes they had made and continued to make to their curriculum, various choices he was making, etc., I was honestly starting to get the feeling this was the place. I was salivating to see the actual school and classrooms. Unfortunately, they were a big letdown.

    I agree it's annoying, but you can turn it off, can't you?

    Do you mean I can touch x on the bubble to decline the correction? Yeah, but that's more annoying. Plus, it pops up in an irritating place and usually won't get out of it's own way

    Why did I get in this cab? Traffic is miserable and I'd probably have made it to my stop on the train by now.

    Can't even figure it why it sucks... it is super cold out here, but the roads are otherwise clear and dry.

    I'm pretty :facepalm: at myself right now. I fell for a rookie mistake tonight at dinner. Mrs. Piob was venting about work and I offered advice. What's more, when the advice was not well received, I explained why the advice was sound.

    How fucking stupid am I? I've not made a mistake like this in many years.

    "Salad days" is a ridiculous expression gets me to PO'd when I hear it. (Don't tell me it is in Shakespeare I know that it is still ridiculous.)

    I really, really know better it's just the situation was so obvious and I've heard it many times before. I'm still :facepalm: at myself. You just make a noncommittal noise and pour some more wine.

    At least until they get upset at your noncommittal noise because it may be an indication that you're simply humoring them. Then, even when you can explain and demonstrate that you've just listened the inquiry regarding your opinion of the matter comes up. Also, all of this hinges on your non-committal noise showing no signs of annoyance or exasperation. In that case, you're boned.

    (I'm sort of annoyed at myself for laying out this sequence of events, but I've been in this situation too many times to deny that it exists.)
