The contraction 'aren't'. I really really hate it and it's just been used way too many times in a book I'm reading. 'You're not' is a million times better than 'you aren't'. Fricking wrong.

Commuted in a different direction today, haven't been this way since last summer. Felt smug as I headed off towards the back roads when the traffic report said the interstate was backed up. Later I felt less smug, and distinctly pissed off when the back roads were also backed up. Took me 25 minutes longer than it should have even in the rush hour..

Note to self: leave earlier tomorrow!

As if it was necessary to have yet another reason to hate the NRA.

(CNN) - The National Rifle Association has "stooped to a new low" in making robocalls to residents in Newtown, the two U.S. senators from Connecticut argued in a letter to the NRA on Monday.

"We call on you to immediately stop calling the families and friends of the victims in Newtown," the senators wrote.


Reports emerged last week of Newtown residents receiving robocalls urging them to stand against state legislative attempts to pass stricter gun laws, including a more expansive assault weapons ban and 10-round limit for magazines.
