    Hello Folks

    People who say 'think outside the box' when they have absolutely no ideas what it means.

    All the best with your writing.

    All writing is practise for the writing that follows.
    If it jams, force it; if it breaks, it needed replacing anyhow.

    I guess it's popular to say that nowadays. Still, I don't like that too.

    People who are oversensitive. Especially those who are suppose to be your BFF's. If you've fallen into that category and a smiley in a text message offends you, you're not my friend anymore.

    people who try to define exactly what "the box" is or should be in relation to "thinking outside the box" really grind my gears.

    I find the current excessive use of the word 'iconic' somewhat irritating. If everything is then nothing is, got it?

    Any chance there's a cat in the box - or not?

    People who don't understand the first thing about String Theory and act like they're experts certainly grind my gears.

    In general, displays of faux expertise really bother me. It's perfectly fine to not know diddly-squat about esoteric topics, but don't let on like you know all about it. I can only be annoyed in areas I know something about, of course. I try my mightiest to avoid hypocrisy and speak with humility even when I know I am right. I know that I don't always succeed, however.
    Wisdom is seldom boisterous.
