A Nice Hot Mug of STFU

I realize that northern Virginia, being more or less an extension of Washington, D.C., is pretty much Uptightville, U.S.A. But after a while, even this place needs to just SHUT UP for a while. By way of example, last night, laurie_robey and I stopped at a "Popeyes" on the way home to grab a quick dinner. On our way in, we passed a woman sitting in her car yelling into her cellphone. Inside the restaurant, a guy in line nearly had an aneurysm because he got "combo #3" instead of "three pieces of chicken." As we left the restaurant, the woman was still yelling into her cellphone.

I mean seriously, does fried chicken have any business being so fraught with stress? And this is sadly fairly typical of life around here.

On a similar note, I'm putting LiveJournal peeps on notice: I am probably going to do some friends-list culling soon, and one of the things I'm going to be using as my criteria is ratio of "politics" to "everything else." Right-wing politics, left-wing politics, domestic, international, doesn't matter. Frankly, I'm sick of hearing about it, and there are a few folks on my friends list who talk about precious little else these days. So if you're a politics hound and you find yourself dropped, don't take it personally. I just can't stomach it any more.
