    We pre-ordered a pick up seafood boil for Christmas Eve and when we tried to check out it said it couldn't process my credit card so we used J's. We only got 1 confirmation email for the pickup. Checked my credit card the next day and there was a pending charge which I was hoping would get reversed but I just checked and it posted. Ugh, now I have to call the restaurant and try to get it reversed. Not a huge deal but I really don't want to deal with it.

    I make Fry mini pancakes some mornings, and they delight him. He also tends to not sit centered in his seat - I tell him all the time sitting properly makes it harder for food to fall, and thus harder for the dog to steal what falls. Well, today I used the last of the pancake batter to make 3 little pancakes that came out perfect. He did not sit properly in his seat, so of course he dropped the last one and the dog got it. Heartbreak ensued. I tried to salvage the situation by cutting a small circle out of one of my pancakes, but because it had janky edges that solved nothing. An hour later he’s still lamenting the loss of the “perfectly round” pancake. This will not stop until I make pancakes again.

    RIP perfectly round pancake.

    My Target does curbside for pancake mix. :)

    This is going to sound like a vent but it’s really a not even problem. I mentioned in another thread that there is a house being built across the street. I’ve gotten used to the noise and the guys are really nice so it’s not an issue. The issue is how much I can’t stand the owners of the property. They have that entitled rich people attitude and are incredibly unfriendly with us. We’ve smiled and they just look at us with irritation. I’m totally fine and relaxed until they show up at the job site and then all the anger boils up. I just realized this is happening because the guys are here today and I was fine (even though it’s Saturday) but as soon as the owners showed up, I was seeing red. I think they look down on us because we’re renters but also they’re just assholes. They were blocking a driveway across the street and the person who lives there asked them to move and they totally didn’t. Assholes. But also, not even problem. I’m glad they’re not our landlords.

    I feel the same irrational anger every time I see a storefront or house for rent here in Sac and the contact number is a 415 area code (or worse, 408). Fucking predatory Bay Aryan real estate developers and slumlords.

    The stupid thing with this house is that they’re building it for their son BUT it’s an ADU. I don’t even remember what that stands for but they aren’t allowed to rent it out. It can only be used for a relative. The son can’t sell it because it’s part of the property with the apartment building. What is even the point? Buy his ass a condo that he can get equity in. I’m not sure they understand (or care about) the laws surrounding ADU’s.

    Why is Spotify cheerfully telling me it has smushed all my carefully curated playlists into a single list like it's done me a favour instead of ruined my life? When I am in the mood for mopey 90s alt-rock, I do not need Nicki Minaj popping up suddenly. Wtaf.

    J refilled the beer fridge and didn’t follow my organizational methodology. Now I have to dig for what I want vs. knowing where to look for it!

    My MIL is here and I feel that deeply @Imabug1002. If you want to help, stop organizing legos and stop putting dishes away in the wrong spot and vacuum.

    Such a good question! The pop-up was like "hey we put all your content into one stream with some filters you're welcome" and I'm going "wtf I already HAD filters and they were called PLAYLISTS". Why can these companies never stop fixing shit that isn't broken?!

    Nooooo

    He also didn’t rotate, he put new beer in front. We’re going to have to have a talk!

    V, that’s so weird, if it was an option like “listen all” or separate playlists I would get it. But just combining would be so annoying.

    CW, My in-laws are coming in June, I’m already imaging the comments we’ll here. Luckily they’re getting a hotel!

    I am shopping for an electric scrubber and have narrowed it down to two models of the the Bissell SpinWave. I am irrationally angry that the Amazon descriptions don't tell me what sets each one apart thus necessitating a separate Google search.
    Accent colors and which specific cleaning solutions come with either model. Those are it.

    Samsung will no longer support the S8. I'm grumpy about it because I don't particularly want a new phone anytime soon. Hopefully the lack of support doesn't affect my day to day for a while yet.

    ATT keeps trying to give me a new phone for rooster, since they say his won’t work once 3G goes the way of the dinosaur. He loves his old slow Huawei so I feel you.

    We’re starting to travel for work again, my flight boards tomorrow at 4:40am but Precheck doesn’t open until 4:30 :sad: I’m going to have to go through the regular line.

    Good news, there won’t be a line. Yuck though.

    Stood in regular line from 3:30-4 and realized they opened precheck early so I switched lines. I would have slept longer if I knew they opened it at 4 vs. 4:30 on the website!
