The Recap Post

     Okay, it's time to catch up on a few annoyances from the past and see how things are going.  

This weekend I was down at the Oak Bay tea party, briefly.  Just wanted to have a Baron of Beef.  Anyhow, while I was down there I noticed that the Girl Guides were staffing the Tetley Tea Tent.  You could get a cup of tea and some of their cookies.  I resisted the temptation to check it out, but now I'm regretting that decision.  It would have been a perfect opportunity to learn a few things.

I would have first checked to see if when you got your cookies with your tea if you were forced to take both a chocolate and a vanilla or if you had your choice.  And if there was choice, just which flavour was being scooped up.  Alas, I have no proof for my vanilla is better campaign.  I also should have gone up to one of the Girl Guide leaders and had a word about the cookies.  Maybe they have more pull than the lowly sales girls that I've dealt with over the years.
Since my post on tattoos, I've noticed that they really are taking over the bodies of those born between I'd say about 1980 and 1990.  Figures that 80's kids would be so clued out in terms of fashion.
On the wasp front, I am happy to say that I not only seem to have killed off the buggers at my house, but I also went over and did in a nest at my mother's.  I'm now for hire, cheap! For twenty bucks I'll come kill your wasps too.  As for the rats, there has not been a return visit.  I did talk to a guy this week who had a rat come up his toilet.  A lot of people didn't believe me when I floated that theory about my rat, but he says it happened to him.  He tried to flush the rat, but it just stretched out its legs and watched the water go round and round.  

     I have had some regular readers suggest some annoyances to me recently and I will probably get around to tackling these in an upcoming post.  What I'd really like to my readers to send me is photos of annoying signs like the ones in my post, "Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign".  If you don't remember that one you can find it using the blog archive on the right.  It's under April.  Bye for now.

  1. Domesticated rats are not only very cute, but also loyal, intelligent and gentle creatures. If it weren't for their ugly tails, I posit that rats would be a very popular pet.

    I'm just sayin'.
