    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Mine is my name, so I can't tell you what it is!

    I do still struggle to remember it sometimes!

    It's an uncommon name, so it was dead cheap.....a lot cheaper than the one I suggested for Wiz!

    No price given, which means it's mighty expensive.

    I'm still wondering if there's something about my car I've missed!

    Found it!

    Those nasty little plastic wires that hold price labels etc. onto clothes.

    To start with, you need scissors to cut them off, unlike string, which is just looped round the label.

    Then you snip the wire in half and if you're not careful, it pings off onto the floor and then you can't see where it's gone.

    But worst of all is that the other half then goes into a sulk and hides, and even if you do eventually find it, it hooks itself into the garment so that it's a hell of a job to get off, and being transparent, it acts like a chameleon and blends with the garment.

    If you don't find it, it will torment your neck every time you wear the garment.



    And that's the other, literal irritation. Why they put the scratchy labels at the back of the neck. Aaaaaargh! Itch itch irritate itch.

    My new sofas arrived today, however they came with the wrong footstool.

    It was too late to contact the shop, so I will contact them tomorrow. However, I expect it will be a few weeks before I get the correct one.

    No bread in the house (I forgot to bake any) so I had an apple for breakfast.
    How is it that a bit of apple skin can get into a gap between my teeth that I can't get dental floss in to get it out?

    What's annoying me?

If it's so absolutely crucial to carry on for the last few minutes of the episode then step to one side out of the way and watch it.

    You think they see you as a friend, but really you're nothing but an injured wildebeest.

    24 seasons 1-8 have 24 episodes, ended in 2010.
    24 live another day (2014) has 12 episodes.

    Prison Break seasons 1-4 has roughly 22 episodes each, ended in 2009.
    Prison Break season 5 (2017) has 9 episodes.

    Why so short?!

    24 was thought to be too long with 24 episodes so it was cut down.

    Prison break season 5 was a trial run to see if it still had an audience.
