at what point should you scream obscenities at someone

is it just me, or does anyone else find it entirely repulsive to hear someone clipping their finger nails at work? i think it makes me a little bit crazy. well, maybe a lot crazy. it makes me crank up the volume of my music so that i don't have to hear it. this is something that should be done in the privacy of your home bathroom. there are people at both of my jobs that do this. i think at some point i will have to humiliate them.

on a more positive note, i watched and very much enjoyed Pan's Labyrinth last night. i suppose with all of the hype, i totally forgot to notice before i got there that the movie is Spanish with English subtitles. i think that the lack of hollywood involvement is what kept the movie good, and what kept it from sucking. i wasn't sure if i should expect a children's movie, or some dorky science fantasy crap, but it was neither really and a little bit of both - though i'd say a little bit harsh for the younger childrens. wonderfully written and acted, and well integrated special effects. certainly worth seeing in the theatre.

my replacement cell phone has finally been sent and i get to pick it up tomorrow. it's been roughly 5 extra days longer than fido said it would be, which is not a surprise at all. the actual surprise for me was when i got the original RAZR phone within 5 days of my order date. more to come later as to whether i should have replaced it with a different phone all together

    We once had a supervisor who would go absolutely sketchy whenever he saw this particular co-worker clipping his nails at work. Once, at the end of the day when the supervisor had left, this co-worker clipped his nails, then lef them strategically placed all over the supervisor's keyboard, desk, in the keyhole of a padlock, etc.

    Gross, but hilarious.

    I think there was some diaryland guy that used to collect someone's toenail clippings from the bathroom at his office. That's pretty gross.

    But um, anyway.

    I'm so psyched about comics! Like totally wicked psyched!

    How bizarre. Dennis & I went to see Pan's Labyrinth last night too!

    I HATE the nail-clipping sound. Don't people have bathrooms?

    I saw a guy on the TTC clipping his TOENAILS once. barf.

    Coincidentally, I nearly had a freak-out while waiting for a doctor's appointment yesterday. A woman put her leg up over the chair, and was actually clipping her toenails in the office, and allowing the clippings to fall on the seat of the chair. I didn't give her the evil eye, but rather the eye from hades, and she stopped. It was disgusting and socially unacceptable.
