    Pet Peeves

    Probably not, since the people I see doing that are adults. If they don't do it, who teaches the kids to do it?

    Mostly what I see is women wearing some kind of leggings under knit dresses. I haven't had a slip in years, but I do still wear hose with dresses because of the chafing, along with uncomfortable shoes without hose. If I'm wearing sandals, I don't wear hose, of course, but I will wear something underneath the dress to smooth everything out. I just think it looks better. (Also, I always hear Dolly Parton and Olympia Dukakis in "Steel Magnolias" talking about Janice Van Meter.)

    Pet Peeves

    If their kids are anything like mine, you'll get revenge early the next morning when the kids wake up. It doesn't matter if mine is up late, he's still going to wake up between 6 and 7 a.m. I can't imagine letting him stay out past 10 p.m. (except on July 4). Even when we are visiting family and doing family things, we try to get him in bed no later than 9 p.m., and that's late. His normal bedtime is 8 p.m., and I don't like to deviate much even on vacation. Of course, we can't stay up much past that most nights. I feel old.

    Dear Diary: Question of the Day(s)

    I'm not sure I really have a favorite, but I'm going to say farfalle because it reminds me of this:

    Chit-Chat

    My father died eight years ago, and today my oldest brother posted on Facebook about it, saying it was eight years ago today. Except it wasn't. He's several days early. I so want to correct him (because he's wrong, and how do you get that wrong?) but I'm restraining myself because I know that if I say anything, I'll just get blamed for being insensitive, like it wasn't my father, too. So I'm not saying anything (except here), but I just don't know how he doesn't remember the actual day his father died. Probably no one would believe me anyway (youngest child here -- no one ever believes I know what I'm talking about) until I pointed them to the obituary.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Minus Fox and CW, that's what we got before cable. It makes me think of Jeff Foxworthy, who had a bit about it: "Kids today have it made. I mean, if they don`t like what`s on television, they have got what, 40 or 50 channels to choose from. Remember how many channels we had when we were kids? Three. And if the president was on, your night was shot. The president`s on! He`s on every channel! We`re going to miss 'Flipper'!" Of course, that was a long time ago, so the number of channels is way more than that now. (I looked for a video of it, but could not find one. I could only find a transcript of an interview that included the clip.)

    Chit-Chat

    Has anyone ever donated a car to a charity (like the American Cancer Society or Habitat for Humanity)? We have an old car to get rid of, but there don't seem to be any salvage yards around here any more. I suppose we could try to sell it to someone, but I doubt anyone would want it. It's more than 20 years old. It's a standard and slips out of fifth gear (although you wouldn't want to drive it out of town anyway, and you don't really need fifth in town). And it leaks oil. We always kept oil in the trunk to add to it. It also doesn't really look good. I couldn't sell it to anyone without telling them what's wrong with it, and I don't know why anyone would buy it with what's wrong with it. We aren't going to buy a new car, so it's not a trade-in (as though a dealership would want it either). I just want to get rid of it.

    Dear Diary: Question of the Day(s)

    When I was in sixth grade, my dad took me to see the Texas Playboys. I think I was the youngest person there (by a lot).

    Your quote of my post is very strange, @Ubiquitous, because that's not the post I quoted and was talking about.

    Star Wars. (The one that is subtitled "A New Hope," but that I'm old enough to just call "Star Wars.")

    Gut-Busters: TV's Funniest Moments

    "Unicef." I love the landshark sketch. We still reference it, enough that my 7-year-old can't figure out what we are talking about and why.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    It's also not that impressive considering so many women's shirts are just like that. I have trouble finding a shirt that is actually long enough to tuck in. I have seen these commercials. I don't understand what they are advertising.

    I gave a wedgie to Justin Bieber. What's wrong with that?

    I don't understand why a salesperson wouldn't be willing to do that to make a sale. It's better than hanging onto the item until it has to be marked down.

    Peanut Butter: Creamy or Crunchy?

    I always thought I hated peanut butter. Turns out I just hate creamy peanut butter. It's too sticky. The crunch cuts the stickiness, so I like crunchy peanut butter. Too bad everyone else in the house likes creamy peanut butter. Or maybe it's better because I never have to share.
