Note: I originally wasn’t going to write this post as I predicted (fairly accurately, it turns out) that it would just end up being a list of everyday things to bitch about, but it would be silly not to write it just because it wouldn’t be good or original. If that’s my motivation, I’m writing for the wrong blog. Besides, I like sequels. This post has nothing to do with my previous post– But it should.
