Having to move classroom. To the point of transferring all the reading books from one room to the classroom next door. Pointless and time consuming.

Accidentally winding your slightly more obliging colleague up by throwing a strop about all the stuff living in the new classroom that has nothing to do with that class and pretty much chucking it out while she watches in horror.

Deserting a tip of a room due to feeling unwell, leaving said lovely colleague in the middle of the massive mess.

The Eye Why must you torment me, creations of Melkor?

I assign nightmares to Mordor. They are truly the stuff of Mordor. In tonight's episode of TeaGEW's Mind Hates Her (and Everybody Else, for That Matter) our young heroine finds herself running and hiding from she knows not what. Her great escape takes her to a never-ending claustrophobic maze of underground tunnels without a map, and she's pretty sure it's the sewer. How will she escape? Find out in part two of her adventures of terror later on tonight.
I have really bad dreams every night. It doesn't matter what I dream about, there will always be something that scares the pants off of me, so I've trained myself to wake up and not put up with the BS that my mind puts me through every night. I hate that I have to do this, but I don't think they've found a cure for brains raping dreams. Really, if I could get a night's sleep without something terrible being the premise of my dreams, I'd be happy. Is this normal? Does anyone else have nightmares all the time? I was pretty sure that all of this was supposed to stop after I "grew up", so why do they continue?

If you are aware you are dreaming and can wake yourself out of one then that's lucid dreaming, and if you can harness that and 'train' your mind, then you can change your dreams and even explore the dream world!

That could definitely be the case. A lot of very upsetting things have happened in my life over the past two years and sometimes I have a hard time handling it.

Today I learned that my father doesn't have enough money to pay our mortgage by himself anymore, so later on this week he has renters coming in to live in our house. Renting one's home out should not be this hard, I know, but this house has been in my family since my grandparents bought it when my mother was a girl and letting someone else live in my home, even for a little while, feels like intruding. The worst part is that I knew this was coming, I just wish that it didn't happen now. This whole situation can go to Mordor. All of it. I'm just done with being disappointed.

I would assign the stores/shops that write $x.99 instead of just rounding it up a penny and having a nice round number. Why do they have to write $4.99 instead of $5.00?

Except that if I would assign that, all the shopping would be done in Mordor.

having your assigned parking space be under a tree full of strange berries and pigeons that poop all over your windshield. Then, having to work on the truck while laying on all those strange berries, and every time you sweep, the pigeons move around and knock down more berries. What's worse is, the berries have pits in them that dig into my back.

It's psychological. You're more likely to buy if you see the smaller first number. Scientifically proven in studies, of course. Secondarily, because of sales tax. Everybody knows it's going to be over $5 anyway.

Apart from Marks and Spencer (but that is not JUST a shop). They realised that we aren't stupit and did away with that a long time ago. Also here the ticket price is what you pay unless it is somewhere which deals mainly with trade where they may show ex-VAT price.

So when I first went to the states and was ignorant of Sales Tax I thought it was rip off a tourist time..

Haha, yes, here if it says it costs $0.99 they really mean around $1.12.

I do agree about skinny people complaining all the time that they are fat. I have a feeling they do that just to hear that they are not, in fact, fat.

On a similar note, I want to assign people who complain endlessly about being fat (with or without basis), but do nothing about it; continue eating sweets instead of proper food, continue not doing any physical exersize, etc.

You just need to know gentlemen like me who will approach it logically.

"Do we accept that I am lean? Oh we do...great. Give me one of your skirts and shirts, if I wear this around all day, you must agree never to say you're fat again in my presense. Deal?"

(Yes this did work with a friend...not sure what I would have done if the clothes didn't fit, but they were actually kind of perfectly comfortable)

Thing about skinny people saying, "I'm fat," two things are going on at once: (1) they are allowing the predominant culture to dictate the terms of their worth; (2) they are actually saying, "I don't like myself."

One song to the tune of another...

Realisin that the lyrics of Gilgalad was an elven king which I love in the Stephen Oliver setting, fit almost perfectly to the anodyne theme tune of a fairly dire sitcom and getting it as an earworm

A friend lived in my room for a month.

a) I have never been in the same house for so long with such a spoiled, helpless, and brainless girl of my age before. It was a nightmare.

b) My room was never so amess, even when I had clothing on the floor from a month ago. Ever heard that you leave things as you found them?

c) Not only are my things all over the place, but there are things from the kitchen, the office, the bathroom, and other rooms of the house lying in every corner. I'm glad she used them when she needed them, but how about putting them back once you're done?



I think that after that one month of her visit I need a year of recovery.

G55 doesn't allow math to be sent to Mordor, or else I'd send every math teacher above Grade 5

Calculus belongs in Numenor. (I actually think this location is quite fitting)

That's quite right.

Do I therefore belong in Mordor?

Really, though, I've never considered myself a nerd (books are cool but there's more to fun than books) but I'm the only person in my English class who enjoys doing Shakespear plays as a part of the books we study.

I assign that annoying squishy sound your jaw can make sometimes when you're chewing. It's riiiiiight at the top next to the ear canal so I can hear it really well. And I've got some delicious chewy bread with real garlic in it.

My parents would revise this to "why does your jaw crack when you chew! Stop it!" (as if I had some type of control over the crackiness of my jaw),
