Beautiful day here in north Florida. The sun is shinning and temps in the mid 70s...

TOTD: We all have behaviors we don't like about ourselves (except for Poli and wilbur :D). What do you consider you most unbecoming trait? It can be physical or behavioral. Keep in my this is about your defects not someone elses. Mine would be arrogance. It is what I struggle with the most to keep suppressed. I beat it down and it pops back up at unexpected times and places.

The snow is melting and we'll get to the high 50s today! It should be even nicer tomorrow - just in time for our next system.

TOTD: I have a lot of defective traits and behaviors - it's kind of hard to pick just one. I have pretty much zero patience or empathy. I can successfully fake these traits in limited situations but they are as unnatural to me as being able to spout wings and fly off. I'm also lazy as the day is long. Left to my own devices, I'd sit around and read all day or go fishing. Luckily, some of my other bad traits like perfectionism and pride usually overcome my innate sloth.

Now that I think of it, any "good" traits that I have are all more or less unintentional byproducts of my various character defects. Thanks FlaGator! :p

I wish I had a better filter between my brain and my mouth. I also wish I was better at dealing with stupidity and ignorance. i have zero tolerance for dumb ass people.

Rainy today, but that's good for the patchwork I've done on my neighbor's lawn for the damage the propane company did when they pulled out our old tank. Got some good topsoil in, seeded and starter fertilizer down.

TOTD: Really a couple - just like my Dad. I tend to hold grudges - sometimes for a lifetime. I can't express myself externally as warmly as I really am on the inside.

Again, I line up with Ginger. Zero patience and empathy. "What's WRONG with you?" are often the first words out of my mouth. Always justified, of course.

LOL! And after the vapid expression of surprise on the victim's face, "What the hell were you thinking? Oh, that's right - you weren't."

I am sooooo going to Hell.

Not to mention you're OCD over grammatical eras.;)

It's raining here again today. Pouring, in fact.

TOTD:

I am in firm belief that I have undiagnosed ADD. No hyperactivity involved but I absolutely CANNOT focus on one thing at a time. I always see things through to the end but sometimes my life would be so much simpler if I could just do one. thing. at. a. time.

That and I hate people with little justification. Yes, hate. I like to hate. Call me a hate monger.

I am who I am. :p

I prefer to think I'm in a valiant but ultimately losing battle with maintaining a literate culture in this country.

Hoarders think that they are being valiant in the losing battle of owning the exact right amount of garbage.

Except that hoarders are stupid and somewhat evil while Linda Numbers is smart and somewhat evil in a completely different and much more esthetically pleasing way. :D

Thank you, I think. I don't think hoarders are evil, just whack jobs.

Surely a 'battle to maintain' you make it sound as if you are fighting the forces of literacy. :p:D

Sometimes Linda Numbers is the pie crust, sometimes she's the filling, and sometimes just that little bit of spice.......:p

One of my faults is I am a smart ass, or a dumb ass, depends on you point of view. But it is fun. :D
