Sometimes I sleep tight
Sometimes I sleep light

I always say my prayers
To keep the thing under the stairs

and as my dreams began
hopefully not about RPGFan

fears of save points and level grinding
or of Dragon Age 2 undermining

wake me from my slumber
of Scotch pour another tumbler

causes me to run afoul
the worst pet peeve with a scowl

not enough booze to get me tight
post all night to Goose's delight

That was beautiful Yoda.


I specially love the sub plot running through it where I get you drunk on scotch (I see what you did there, I'm scottish) to make you "tight", which will cause my delight.

I could have sworn this thread's title was spelled right before... but it's 10 times more awesome spelled wrong, so leave it! :)

.......I......hate.......it.......when....... people drag their feet as they walk.

Are you a member of that "I secretly want to punch people in the back of the head who walk slowly on the sidewalk" group on Facebook?


A pet peeve of mine is when people write "loose" when they mean "lose."  If English isn't your native language, you get a pass.  If not, argh.

I hate that.  Even in university, people have issues with the: there/their/they're's, it's/its, and other frequent offenders.  Profs included....

My pet peeve is not being a member of that group yet. HOW HAVE I NOT DONE THIS.

Also people who don't use headphones or earbuds or anything for their computer in public (ie. cafés). Bitch, I do not want to hear the vlog you're watching about a girl who went to a sex toy party. If I have earbuds in & I'm listening to Eminem or something, and I can STILL hear that, GTFO.

Dude that reminds me, there were those really obnoxious guys in the back of a computer lab I was in once and then one gets a phonecall and I realize he's speaking in Hindi.

Unfortuantely I had forgotten the hindi word for "shut up" (it is apparently chup rahoon) but I totally could've turned around and been all Tujhe shut the fuck up-na chahiye :(

My biggest pet peeve is patients who don't listen to my medical advice.

Also people with unruly children. If you can't discipline your kids, DON'T FUCKING HAVE KIDS. Some people need their testicles and ovaries removed by law.

Definitely this. Also, parents who cuss a lot at their children, it just irks me.
