Sending 5 consecutive text messages instead of 1.

Today 9:43 AM: I should be there by 6 tonight
Today 9:43 AM: I get off work at 5
Today 9:43 AM: But I want to shower first
Today 9:44 AM: And let the dog out

I do this when i'm texting from my computer. Every time I do it, I get annoyed with myself as I send the third or fourth one.

"Three teams made the big dance last night including Manhattan, Delaware and <whomever else>."

If you're listing all three, you don't need the word "including." Just say "Three teams made the big dance last night; Manhattan, Delaware and <whomever else>.

Things like that are near the top of the pet peeves list for me.

I say soda more often than pop, but I use both. I have finally figured out that around here its supposed to be soda.

Surprised how rigid the line is to the east of Westmoreland county. It's like you have to check your common sense at the top of the mountain before you're allowed to come down.

As an aside, two counties over from my county in NC is Green. I have no idea what they're calling it over there. Cheerwine maybe? The only other thing I know to call soda is 'fizzy drink' because I've spent enough time with my English friends that it doesn't make me snicker anymore.

Maps are awesome. I missed my calling as a cartographer.

When I worked at Old Country Buffet in Greensburg back at the turn of the century, my GM had a cartography degree. So maybe I didn't.
