I am officially sick of the snow here. And the ice. And the slush. And trying to keep cars going in the direction I ask them to go. I expect obedience from my car. And after promising us a thaw this weekend, it snowed again last night, and now they are saying that next week we go back to freezing, and that it may last till the New Year.
And now for something completely different, although still in the Grumpy Old Woman department...... I am reduced to yelling at the TV set. Every newsreader (and they are all under 40) says "particuly", or heaven help us - "pertikaly" instead of "PARTICULARLY". And it is driving me crackers. DON'T THEY KNOW HOW TO SPEAK PLAIN ENGLISH??????? And "reguly" instead of "regularly". The BBC is actually one of the worst for this. The BBC!!!!!!! They need me to go and give them an English lesson. I have become my mother-in-law, who used to talk to the TV set. Only I am prone to yelling.
I was reduced to sending a text one morning to ask the female newsreader to STOP TALKING (I may have used caps) for 5 seconds so that her guest could utter a word. Somehow, the newsreaders of today appear to think that the news is all about them, and not the actual news. I don't give a hoot what they think, I want un-biased reporting of facts. And I am hearing way to much about what these imbeciles think.
The trouble is that most of them are too young, and too obsessed with career advancement. All about "me".
I am a real grumpy old woman this morning, aren't I?
Moaning is good for the soul. At least it is not festering inside.
On a more cheerful note, I am quilting the Christmas thing I made. It may be a wall hanging. It may be a runner. It may just be a Christmas thing. It could be a door mat. However, I am using the wadding a friend gave me. She dropped off a gigantic roll of thick wadding, probably used for upholstery, and because I had it, and it was free, I decided to use it.
My quilt thingy stays rigid. It is too thick. It makes quilting a hideous process and I am falling out of love with it by the second. And I have 2 more quilts pinned and ready to go and I am too lazy to unpin and re-pin with the new thin stuff I found I had. Sigh. It all fits in with the GOW thing, doesn't it. I need to pull myself together and go and unpin, don't I. And stop whining.
Shuffle. Moan. Snarl. Oh all right then.........
