Wherever there's coffee, there's a break.

If time is money, then "free" time must be an oxymoron. (No offense, Coffee!)

question of the day ? for the weekend of March 28th:

If someone says/does something you disagree with or otherwise find objectionable, are you more likely to let it go or confront the matter? And yes, I know there are things you can't let go and things you can. But which are you more likely to do in the majority of situations -- let it go, or take it on?

If I care about the person I'm more likely to argue, especially if the matter's important enough. Otherwise I don't give two tiny titmouse droppings...

I'm usually a let it go person as of late because I've found I've made the situation worse by bringing up the problem and then being misunderstood. And then I cry.

When the drunk who started a conversation with me in the cafe referred to the amygdala and pointed above his collar bone, I just let it go, but when he told me Andr Gide and Marcel Proust were the same person I felt obliged to tell him 'I didn't know that'.

That's why HFox and I get along so well: no matter what I tell him, he says "I didn't know that."
