Out of staters asking me my opinion on Tebow. It's like asking a seasonal mall worker to comment on his favorite Christmas tunes.

The stupid pop song about "If you like it you should have put a ring on it." Can't remember the name.

Random, I know. I just picked up a to go lunch from a restaurant that was blaring that song. Arrgh!

Ive got a few to share...

1 People that dont know how to use a turnsignal... Or if you use one they will try to speed up and not let you thru, HOW DARE YOU! Let it be known... I will cut you off for being a jackass! Anyhow my car is uglier then yours.

2 People burping in public.... Why would anyone think that the whole restaurant would enjoy that as much as you do?

3. People that take two parking spots..... Ive got a site for all of you ( http://www.youparklikeanasshole.com/

and in the trail....

4. Dogs off leashes....... I love dogs. Just dont like getting bitten by one at 12K

Ive got a couple more but I feel my beers kicking in and nothing good can come out of this :mrgreen:

The new REI ad depicting five friends going backcountry skiing annoys me.

Festivus is in two days. May I suggest that you deal with it?

Enduring four dogs fighting on the Sherman summit was my least favorite memory of 2011.
