Lots of things annoy me. I'm pretty much annoyed by traffic everyday but I'm trying to learn to live with it because there isn't anything I can do about it. The source of a lot of my traffic annoyance is Brightside. Luckily, the city has figured out that a center turn lane would be a fabulous thing to have. On Sept 10th there was an article in the paper about the project & it claimed work had been started. If they call putting out orange cones beginning work, then I guess they have. HOWEVER, I call beginning work to actually see people doing some work. I haven't seen that yet & it's 3 wks. later.
I'm also annoyed that the birds have discovered the ceiling fans on my patio. Isn't it bad enough that they build nests on top of the columns in the front of the house? I HATE it. There's always bird poop on the columns. They could make all the nest they want if they'd just be more careful where they poop. Anyway, now they've taken up residence on the tops of the ceiling fans on the patio. It's weird that this has just become a problem because the ceiling fans have been there 3 years. At first all we had to do was turn the fans on & the birds would fly away. Apparently, they've decided the fans are their own private Disney World because now the only time they leave is if we walk outside. The problem with that is as soon as we walked back in the house they go back to perch on the fans. I need to come up with a way to keep those stupid things away. I don't like birds except Hummingbirds & I don't think they're real birds anyway. Because of all this I've decide to get a bird bath. I thought maybe the thought of a refreshing bath would lure them from the fans. Besides, I have the perfect place for one & I think it would be pretty in the yard. I googled bird bath & imagine my surprise when a whole bunch of listings came up for HEATED BIRD BATHS! WTH??? We're talking about annoying little creatures that live outside year round. I thought that was one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.
This brings me to why I'm so annoyed TODAY. I checked our home email a little while ago & Wayne Brady's October shows have been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Allison, I know you're bummed that there won't be any audience participation. That's the only part of this that doesn't annoy me. So now I have to figure out what show I want to see. I would really like to see Barry Manilow, go ahead & laugh, but he doesn't have a show while we're there. How did that happen? I thought he was there like every night. I've been reading about a bunch of the shows. It wouldn't be so hard to decide on one if the tickets weren't so expensive. I want to make sure I'm going to like whatever we see. I don't want to waste $250 on 2 tickets to something that's not good. Dean also told me to figure out where I want to eat Sunday night for our anniversary. I guess being together for almost 12 years hasn't taught him that I'm a terrible decision maker when given a lot of choices. He narrowed it down for me to 3 casino's to make it easier for me but there are like 15 restaurants in those 3 casino's. Craziness.
I'm also a little annoyed that I have to fly on one of those little American Eagle planes from B.R. to Dallas. I'm normally not afraid of flying but that's when I'm on a nice big jet, not a crop duster. I'm guessing they don't serve drinks on those little planes so I'm thinking about taking a Benadryl.
