    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

    After 2 weeks of peace where I assume neighbour was on holiday its back to this large crowd of people stomping, I don't mind people having guests but the problem I talked about in past was she has a lot of noise for the amount of people that are meant to live there.

    When I typed pom-pom earlier, auto moron insisted on capitalising the second pom. Now it doesn't.

    Living on Earth = Any Weather + Lots of Idiots
    Which is a fact even if the maths don't work.
    (Or at least if I remember a bit of algebra that is. )

    Also,

    Living on earth - lots of idiots = - any weather

    So, to get rid of weather means getting rid of lots of idiots.
    And vice versa.

    But without weather, would there be be any living on earth?

    It's a paradox.

    I don't generally swat them these days, I catch them in a washed out clear yoghurt type pot with a bit of card and bung them outside.
    I don't like fly squash around the place.
