Sprouts are the best on sandwiches. Especially spicy ones.

What's a living nightmare? A world without sprouts? I agree completely.

Why do you have a crossing for pelicans? Are their wings tired?

Seriously, I've heard of zebra crossings, but what's a "pelican crossing"?

EDIT: Never mind, I Googled it.

My new Camaro doesn't have a CD player in it, so I can't listen to MY audio books, so I have to try my luck on the audio book channel on XM and hope I don't get anything weird.

My buddy got free Giants tickets through work and is taking me...but he doesn't want to go early enough to ensure I can get the free bobblehead they're giving away to the first 40k fans. *sigh*

Don't forget about a Puffin Crossing. (It's basically a Pelican Crossing with a few tweeks. Sensors to detect pedestrian's and the lights controlling the pedestrians have moved from the other side of the road to the near side of the raod.

Re: First World Problems

I've been delaying finishing The Sandman Chronicles because then I will know how the story ends. I can always read it again...but not for the first time.

I will be reduced to reading my expensive collection of comic books without the shimmering delight of new experience. Woe is me.

Re: First World Problems

I can never find tights that fit properly. I'm 5'2" and a UK size 16, so while I need to buy the large size to fit around my girth they're much too long, and I end up with Norah Batty legs. I don't even like wearing tights, but I have to wear business dress to work, and I only own one pair of nice trousers.

I'm pretty sure my right foot is slightly smaller than my left foot, so my right shoe always feels slightly more loose than my left shoe.

Faria, "first world problems" is a colloquialism for trivial problems that wouldn't even exist anywhere except in the first world. So you can take your xenophobia elsewhere.
