    My attempt at making gumbo failed miserably. Making roux the real way (without burning it) is an ART and don't let anyone tell you differently.

    Today I am irritated because I had to do man chores. Dragging a 900 pound garbage can through 8 inches of snow 100 yards to the road. Shoveling. Hauling in wood. Putting the screen back on the window. grrr. I'm getting soft in my old age. ;)

    Today I'm irritated by the fact that it is New Year's day and that the idiots from next door have been lighting their fireworks since this morning and since none of them have blasted their hands off yet, I see no sign of stopping.

    I am irritated today by idiot tenants who wait until new years eve day to call and want someone to come and fix something.

    Who the heck am I going to get today to fix your stuff?!? Your garbage disposal hasn't worked for two weeks but today is the day you think it should get fixed??

    Simple solution though. I closed up the office and went home. They are on their own until Monday. :whistling:

    Sorry to revive the irritate thread for the first time in 2009, but I'm irritated by REVISION, and my tutor's refusal to explain the rubric to anyone!!!

    My guitars tuned to Drop C , but i want it to be at Standard D so i can play some thrash.....However it has a floating tremolo..i have to unlock the strings tighten them to D take the back of my guitar tighten the tremolo to bring it down so its tuned to D and the strings are level. then tune it as close to D as i can with the headstock, put on the locking nuts then tune it with fine tunning at the trem........its annoying to do.

    I remember when this was all the fashion, around the mid '90's. I got a BC Rich with this dumbo set-up, and sold it after the first string change. A good idea in principle, but very user un-friendly.

    :)...""you want hair with that? "
    Even worse is, your sitting there, chewing on a Big Mac, and the piped music is playing Horse With No Name, and you notice just how gristly and chewy the meat is, and you start to wonder........

    Our network server at work is down until possibly Tuesday so all orders are done manually. We never appreciate computers until they are gone.

    Today I'm irritated by a newly-chipped sake jug which glowers at me from the verandah window-sill, the disappearance of two florets of cauliflower before lunch and the day's evident lack of formal routine.

    Do you suspect a common culprit? I'd blame the butler.
