The street-legal freight locomotive firing up and rolling out at half past midnight last night.

Eggcorns becoming an accepted part of the language. I'm currently confused and infuriated by my recent discovery that the phrase "strait and narrow" is spelt "straight and narrow" in most dictionaries, even though no Bible spells it that way. And if one did it would be a blatant error, since the point of that passage is that the path to Heaven is difficult to follow, and what's so difficult to about a straight path, regardless of how narrow it is? It doesn't make sense. Anyone who knows what the words mean can see that it doesn't make sense. How does an obviously nonsensical misspelling of a well-known Bible quote end up in a dictionary? I don't understand.

The next-door neighbors have not a wage earner among them for at least five years, but do not lack for video games, cigarettes, cel phones, pets, tatoos, and weekly charcoal bbq cookouts.

Trash fires when there's regular trash pickup in the area. Plus there's a No Open Burning Rule in my county.

I present an aerospace topic for the local group on the third meeting night of the month, but received an email that someone else would take up the mantle this week. Because AeroEd needs to be fresh and dynamic so we retain membeship--or something like that. So we sat through an hour presentation on RC model planes.

The old shiney airplane models that appear at random over the years, often crowding out all else, have yet to take to the sky when anyone is looking. Somehow these will provide the sole motivation to keep members on the roster a bit longer. Somehow, getting young people to rise at O-dark-thirty on a Saturday to carpool across county lines just to fly someone else's model plane for a few five-minute intervals is going to work when they can make the same effort to fly in an actual airplane for almost a half-hour.  I do not share this mindset. Sorry.

Exactly why I never joined any of those clubs.

It really aggravates me when people don't take proper care of DVD's.  >:( Sometimes I'll buy used DVD movies at a retail store, or check DVD movies out at the library, and what do I find? Scratches, nicks, smears, fingerprints, etc., etc. :goldpissed:
