I hate name change amnesty
I never recognize anyone anymore and sometimes I wind up talking to someone I know as if I had never met them before and that's just so awkward and I know they have that little "formerly known as" tag line but it doesn't stay up there forever so it only helps for a little while.

I hate change. *curls up in fetal position and sucks thumb*


Well, not _all_ change. I like having a new president. ;)

15. That's why I have a PDA. It chimes at me to tell me when I have something
to look at. (Not that I ever do go look and see what it was chiming about. LOL)
