    Our local TJ get overwhelmed every single weekend with Canadian cross-border shoppers who check their common sense at the border. The very antithesis of local.
    The TJ location is in the worst possible spot for Canadian traffic too. At least the new Costco is close to the freeway.
    The black-market Pirate Trader Joes cross-border stuff is hilarious though.

    I guess I should explore my inner elf. Never seen the movie.

    Can I discover my inner pirate to watch it?

    Every year I am annoyed by the amount of absolute shit that is wasted in the name of holiday spirit. So much branded junk that goes straight into the trash from employers/brand reps/etc. Multiple family members that send cookies/candy boxes from amazon that are sugar for the sake of feeling good about sending a gift. And my personal favorite, the Christmas card that is a collage of low res photos with no actual writing besides Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays.

    I would be happy to receive a short note about things you and your family were excited about this year. And instead of sending me sweets, buy the homeless person on the corner a cup of hot soup. I don't need the sugar and they could use the love.

    Gift giving is the best when it's thoughtful, and worthwhile even when only a gesture. It annoys me so much when it's wasteful because no thought was put into it at all.

Really strange feeling.

    Really bitched out the front desk in the morning but they clearly didn't care.

    Not as bad I found the majority of the 'cheap' motels around Moab to be pretty run down, but I guess there's little incentive to improve things when they have guaranteed customers, due to the volume of travelers in the area.
    I think we stayed in the same place. My wife got some deal, so we went to see Kevin Nealon (yes, that Kevin Nealon) do stand up at the casino. Room was disgusting, stank of cigarettes, but we figured we'd just dump our stuff, open the window, and let it air out for a few hours. Didn't help at all.

    Best thing happened though - after we completely demoed the bed in a 7-minute marathon of unadulterated debauchery, we're watching one of those investigative news shows and they're doing this thing on how dirty and gross hotel rooms are. "When we come back we reveal the #1 most germ-covered thing in a hotel room!"
    Well, the big reveal was it was the TV remote. As they say this, with the remote in my hand, I toss it towards my wife who somehow does a horizontal cat-like leap 5 feet out of the bed to dodge it. To this day it's the most incredible display of athleticism I've seen a human perform.

    Garage repair is quite the racket. $250 for half an hour of work and a handful of parts. Might need to think about a career change.

    That's pretty funny, the goat Kevin Nealon would be impressed at your story telling skills.

    Springs? Yeah it's a racket. When mine broke last year at this time I was going to replace them myself but they're priced a touch under what you'd pay an installer to do them. (and I was going to chicken out anyway due to the horror stories of people losing fingers if they fuck up)

    It was a few years ago but I think we paid something like 1100 CAD for a new garage door / hardware, including installation that required a new door frame. But springs on their own are a couple hundred somehow?!

    Not sure if this discussion is good timing or not. A scheduled power outage overnight extended til today so I had to use the emergency release to open the garage door this morning. Discovered that it wasn't actually latched to begin with so anyone could have just rolled the door up. The latch doesn't actually reach the gap it needs to hook to hold the door closed. So now I either have someone come out (does Sears still exist?) or Jerry rig it from the inside each time I leave.

    Indeed.

    Drivers who drive over the limit in the (seemingly always) straight passing lanes only to go 10+ under as soon as it turns into twisting single lanes.

    Dang that sounds cheap. It’s more like $3.5k ‘Merican for a whole new door from the ballpark quotes we’ve gotten.

    But yeah, ultimately a small price for not losing a finger or an eye.

    It's really stupid that new snow doesn't always bond well with old snow. If avalanches never happened skiing would be a lot more fun.

    People with weird names who get all snotty when their name isn't correctly pronounced (or misspelled). You know this shit has been happening your whole life, get over it, or change your name to something that is possible to pronounce.
