» Letters they'll never read

More like "Letter they'll never care about".
It's not all about how much money it makes or how much tax it generates.
Sometimes, it's there because it makes everyone's life just that little bit richer, providing a Public Service, just like you should be.

Don't sell our state owned enterprises to people that only care about how much cash they can fleece out of us.

» The nicest thing someone's ever done for me

Was skiing one day ~
I love skiing. It's the activity that I love more than any other. I feel like a different person on the slopes - Athletic, stylish.. Wonderful!

So when I crashed last year and severely messed up my shoulder I was really depressed about it. We were having fantastic weather at the time, and it was the only week I could have off that season. I'd only been able to ski for 2 days out of the 7 I had planned.

Two mates of mine drove 400 kilometres to the town I was staying in, picked me up and packed my gear (I'd fucked my AC joint, couldn't use my right arm at all and was in a shitton of pain), then drove me home. The entire time they were cracking jokes, helping me with everything, even the slightly embarassing chore of getting my pants on in the morning. They never hesitated to come out and help me get back for even a second. Completely unasked, they did all that for me.

Couple of really nice guys, I'd do anything for either of them.

(There's a couple stories about nice things people have done for me, but this one really stands out. Shame neither of them read b3ta, I've never been able to get out how much that meant to me to either of them).

» Conspiracy theory nutters

moot runs the world.
Everyone that messes with 4chan gets stomped on, anon is able to do whatever they want with seeming impunity.

AT&T is powerless against anon, they tried to block 4chan and retreated within a couple hours.

moot - Real world leader?

» Annoying words and phrases

Manager-Marketing hatespeak.
Best-Shoring, the "nice" way to tell three hundred people that their jobs are going to china.

Right-Sizing, the "nice" way to tell people that fucktarded management decisions mean they're shedding workers.

Whoever the hell thought those up can go die.

» Presents

M'lady has a birthday around now.
December 10th, so fairly close to xmas.

Now, we're coming into summer over here in NZ, so I figured out her birthday with the season in mind...

I've saved a marmalade jar (looks pretty nice, patterned glass and almost spherical shape), and filled it with icecream I made (vanilla bean stuff) then made a little heart on top of that with raspberry syrup.

That'll be pulled out of the chiller at the mini-picnic I've sorted out, which'll be a decent, yet cheap bottle of champers, then the icecream, in a park on a sunny day where we can fly the kite I bought for her (she mentioned that she loves kites a month or so ago and was feeling nostaligic for when she used to have one).

Should be a right nice occasion.
