    Not sure if I'm going to get told off for this since I'm not sure why the last one migrated, but...

    Post your irritations!

    This morning's 'Dontone's irritations'

    Getting emithers/seeing headlines about the following subjects -

    Pippa Thingy's wedding

    Cheryl Thingy's relationship/sprog/anything else remotely uninteresting about her, but needs to be reported.

    That Stephanie woman and that lad with the tattoos that keep breaking up/getting back together.

    I can't be the only one who really doesn't give a to$$ about these people. So why do the tabloids think that we want to know how much a toff's wedding is going to cost, or what daft name a celeb has given their baby?

    Or in other words............... WHO CARES?!?!?!?

    That's it for this morning Carry on.
    BEST EVER WINS WON IN ORDER (so far) = Sony Camcorder, 32" lcd telly, micro ipod hifi, Ipod Nano, Playstation 3, Andrex Jackpup, Holiday to USA, nintendo wii, Liverpool vs Everton tickets, 250 Reward Your thirst, 500 Pepsi, p&o rotterdam trip, perfume hamper, Dr Who stamp set, steam cleaner.

    comping = nowt more thrillin' than winnin'

    I have an under counter fridge and freezer.

    Fridge - always mostly empty

    Freezer - always mostly full

    So thought can I just replace the fridge with a under counter fridge/freezer but more storage freezer wise.

    Can I find one? No

    Can I buy another freezer? No, kitchen is too small and I have no shed/garage.

    I've spent years sporadically searching for a fridge-freezer with a little fridge and a big freezer (we use loads of frozen food, but hardly any fresh). Can't find one. There's loads of big fridge/little freezer ones, though. I just can't imagine having that much fresh stuff. Unless you have a family of 8, half of it would go off before you could eat it.

    If ever manage to move out, I think I'll end up with a tall freezer and a counter-top fridge.

    Thread stretchers. There's a couple of threads over on DT which for some reason are ridiculously wide! No idea how to make them smaller/normal sized, but it's a real PITA having to scroll and scroll from left to right.

    What is wrong with my stomach? Sometimes it feels full to bursting but today it's like a bottomless pit. I had 2 Weetabix at 9.15 this morning but now I'm absolutely starving again

    Biggest irritation so far today is my memory
    After 20+ years without a gate on my driveway I have built one to keep the dog in but I constanly get into my car and start it before remembering to open the gate

    It's usually a big picture. They get auto-resized on mine, so I don't always realise someone's posted a big picture (I think I've accidentally done it myself a couple of times). The only time they stretch is when I quote/use advanced reply, which is why I can now see the cowgirl picture on here is big. Wouldn't have noticed otherwise.

    Sometimes, when I'm waiting for a delivery or a tradesman, I get that old advert stuck in my head. "He waits. It's what he does."

    Husband so peeved with Pippa thingy, he found TV could play Kerrang.

    Me, I am now getting to the back teeth with Kerrang being drowned out by power tools as he's making something.

    I need another pile of books to read!
