a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Good suggestion. Then maybe I won't get any more ads for dating sites (literally 70% of my ads are for dating sites and I've never been on one in my life)

Edit:

This afternoon, some neighbor friends of ours asked us to be witnesses to their signing of a durable power of attorney. The lady encouraged us to get these types of documents in place ASAP. Now, I am getting this ad:

Y'all should be glad to get random ads, it means Google doesn't know everything about you... yet. a-hard-days-night-john-3 a-hard-days-night-paul-4

With that having been said, I've been getting NRA ads lately... and since I posted a couple times with a slightly-right-of-far-left political perspective I'm getting the uncannies ahdn_paul_02 but it's probably a coincidence and NRA just happens to be on an advertising campaign. *Googles bass guitars to hopefully realign my ad targeting to something a little more applicable*

^ how odd... I'm sure it must be a coincidence... otherwise we'd all get NRA ads when we talk about Happiness Is A Warm Gun ...

Just got two more, yay! I don't own a house and it hasn't snowed here since a long time before I was born.

Speaking of ads, I really hate the unskippable Youtube ads. And the ads and videos always buffer, since I live in China and I have to use VPN.

I have an Indian name, and I hate when there's a squiggly red line under my name when I use Microsoft Word, and when I have to introduce myself on the first day of school, and when a substitute teacher takes attendance.

I don't know why, but I have a problem with people who change the pronouns of a song when they sing it. The other day, I was listening to a cover of Something and as soon as the singer sang "Something in the way he moves," it just caught me off guard and distracted me from her beautiful voice.

I really hate group projects where I do all the work.

I really feel these. Spell-checkers hate my name almost as much as I hate it when peope change pronouns in songs. It is very distracting somehow, 'he' just doesn't scan as well in most Beatles songs.

Yes, yes, and yes. I'm not Indian, but multiple websites say my name is Hindi, and I have all the same problems.

Older people dyeing their hair in general seems silly to me (said the naive and youthful teenager with a full head of black hair). If and when I am fortunate enough to reach that estimable age when my hair begins to silver (since it's very dark I probably won't be that old), I shall freely allow it to do so, and wear my silver with pride and can't-be-bothered-ness. a-hard-days-night-george-4

I've been very gladdened that in recent years Paul has been allowing his hair to go silver instead of tinting it that obscenely violent shade of chestnut. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

It might sooner than you think, some people start to go grey in their 20's.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

One of Conan O'Brien's staff Aaron Bleyaert went grey at 14 ^.

I wonder what he saw at that age to make his hair go white.

Sealed electrical plugs.

The fuse blew in the plug of my phone charger lead on Thursday, which should be an easy job of just changing the fuse. But it's a feckin' sealed plug with no way to change the fuse. So, instead of just popping in a new fence, 20p tops, I've gotta go buy a new lead which, cheapest I've seen in the Argos catalogue that may do the job is £12.

The only feckin' thing that can go wrong with the charger lead is the feckin' fuse in the feckin' plug, so they make it that there's no way into the plug to do the easiest repair there is but instead you're left with something that has to be thrown away... Needless feckin' waste...

When my dog wants to sleep on my bed at night. Don't get me wrong, I do love him, and I really wouldn't mind it if it weren't for several irritating factors.

1. He's kind of a big dog, so he takes up most of the bed and there's not really any room for me.  Also, he tends to sleep right in the middle.

2. He's afraid of the dark, so I have the choice of keeping the light on or being forced to watch him quiver in fear all night.

3. I have to keep my door open so he can leave if he wants to, but my cat happens to be a psychotic demon who likes to creep into my room at night and bite me in the head, so if I value my life and my sanity I have to keep the door closed.

4. I don't like it when things (apart from my head) touch my pillow, and sometimes he sits on it.

It's sad really, because he's a very sweet dog and I hate having to make him leave every night. Quite a dilemma.
