(I do have quite a few, so I will randomly begin the numbering)

Just because I hand you a card with VISA written on it... does NOT mean I automatically want to pay with paywave Many, many people have their cards linked... retailers who don't ask , don't listen when I say,  'savings please' or have no idea how their EFTpos payments even work...
really flippin' -*@#!- me...!!!

PET PEEVE #128...
(closely related to #127)

...If grumpy at above situation please don't ask condescendingly...  "surely it will be fine on this ocassion?"
No! It is not fine... I SAID SAVINGS!!!
You can kindly cancel the transaction and begin again...
(and no...I don't think YOU should then be grumpy about it - Mr Horrible Up-yourself Retailer!!)

My money...MY CHOICE!!!


PPPP - personal pet peeve proclaimed!!!

(...regular programming will proceed in 5...4...3...2...1...)

Art journaling aka page wrangling

New things for me in this page - using aluminium foil, string and gesso experiments and having fun with my new Lumocolor permanent pencils

This page was started without a plan , as usual, felt quite lost in the middle but managed to wrangle it together in the end. Hope you like taking a look at the process...Enjoy!!
