1. Receiving a bill with that fucking www.wheresgeorge.com stamp on it

2. Polite and formal delivery notes from UPS or the like indicating that the driver was doing his job and not delivering the package because a signature was needed and all. (I do not care. LEAVE THE GODDAMN PACKAGE AT THE DOOR, IT WILL NOT SPROUT WINGS AND FLY AWAY.)

3. People taking the elevator up/down one floor, rather than taking the stairs, thus delaying my pilgrimage to the top floor
4. People who get to the 4-way stop first, yet wait for everyone else to get to the stop sign and not being sure if they want to go or yield when in reality THEY SHOULD JUST BE GOING.

I have never had a bad sandwich there. And I have them a lot.

While visiting from NC, I was surprised by the alcohol-related laws in DC, Philly, and NYC, which seemed at least as oppressive as any in NC. Eg, no booze in grocery stores, Sunday restrictions. Xp

It took me moving away from Michigan to realize that their booze laws are like the best I've run into - you could buy liquor, beer, and wine at like 50 places in my small town, and not being able to buy after 2am or before noon on Sunday was never a big deal.

Compared to places like Minnesota, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon that have one state-run liquor store per town that close at 7pm and aren't open Sundays it was positively luxurious.

Don't get me going on liquor laws, I think it was one of the first things I ever asked Sunny about on the phone.

But crazy shit like having to buy beer inside a bar to take home in PA or back when SC was forced to mix cocktails with those tiny little airplane bottles made me feel a little better about having to stock up on Saturday night for beer on Sunday. And even if that failed, I could always go to a sports bar.

In Missouri, you can walk into any grocery store on Sunday and walk out with a bottle of Jack. You don't even have to pay for it or nothing.

re: NYC... Actually this did come up recently when the anti-brunch crowd in Williamsburg used the no-alcohol law as a weapon to try to keep people from setting up brunch tables on the sidewalk.

Beer, I believe, is OK as of 2006. It's liquor that's still prohibited. I don't know where that leaves mimosas.

Cornstarch for ants works reasonably well. It looks messy, but less so than having ants running around.

when SC was forced to mix cocktails with those tiny little airplane bottles

My friend worked at a SC-based crab shack that opened a location in Greensboro, NC. She said that at first they priced drinks based on the prices they charged in SC, w/ its tiny-bottle-law. This meant that a Long Island iced tea cost $11, which at a casual restaurant in NC, might as well have been $40.

Got to watch out for buses sometime soon since they are going to be running a few minutes earlier since the kids won't be going to school and thereby delaying them to what is currently the normal timetable. There is only a list of supposed times up as a timetable. That is to say where a bus ought to be baseed on head stops, with no fare stages in between so no real regulation as to where one will be when.
You can currently expect a bus to do what is scheduled as about a half hour trip during the day in about 15 minutes at night. Which means that most of the time the timetable is very out.
So anybody travelling in at the time the schoolkids are normally going in will find their schedules disturbed. At least there is only about 15 minuts between scheduled buses but still I doubt people head in to work very early, so that delay will be telling. Certainly threw people out last holiday time, Easter. I wasn't the only person checking my phone/timepiece to see why a bus was speeding by the stop when I was right on time still walking towards the end of the road. Just got told taht some of them at least were ending already when I bumped into the teacher of the course I'm on dropping his kid off at the child minder's that I walk by en route to the training centre.

veryupsetmom (harbl), Wednesday, 29 May 2013 22:13 (eight years ago) link

right yes borax.

so we have the choice of:
a mass ricin style delayed poisoning with cornstarch (ants only)
drying them from the inside out via dehydration with borax (ants and cockroaches)
scattering diatomaceous earth (crushed fossilized hard shell algae essentially) which will slice their bodies to shreds (slugs and small insects, bed bugs, fruit flies, earwigs, tomato hornworms, snails, ticks and cockroaches)

so many ways to kill

don't forget spraying them with hairspray - works well with ants espeically if they're climbing up a wall you don't really care about, then you can leave them shellacked to the wall to serve as a warning to the other ants

kate78, Thursday, 30 May 2013 21:26 (eight years ago) link

True, but in the year since the law kicked in I have yet to buy liquor in WA. I live right over the Idaho border and booze is easily 25% less in the state liquor store over there. Cigarettes are like half the price there too because it's Idaho and who are you to tell them they can't smoke?

It'll be funny next year when all the Washingtonians still buy smokes and booze in Idaho but all the Idahoans will be heading over this way to buy weed.
