You know what I hate? When someone doesn’t get back to you. Especially when that someone is an individual who has, in the past, been very quick about returning messages…possibly owing to the fact that they actually needed something from you at the time. So, I’m going to try a little experiment. It’s been approximately one week since I emailed this person regarding a looming issue, expecting to hear back from them. Now that said issue has been addressed and it’s all smoooooth sailing again, I’m going to see how they mind MY not returning THEIR messages – through the remainder of this month.
It’s interesting that this situation came up only a week after my “I hold a wicked grudge” blog entry. Hell, I had the Arya Stark List thing going well before Arya Stark. For those of you who haven’t read/seen Game of Thrones/Ice and Fire series, Arya Stark is a character who keeps a running list of enemies she plans to exact revenge on. Every night before going to sleep, she’ll recite the list, occasionally adding names: “Joffrey. Cersei. Ilyn Payne. The Hound. Polliver. The Mountain.” My list is somewhat lengthier and goes: “The Witch. The German. The Hobbit. The Gangster. The Whiner. The Rager. The Bitch. The Promoter. The Chef. The Opportunist. His wife.” Understand, I’m a pretty easy guy to get along with. But if you cross me – and by “cross” I’m not referring to innocent mistakes or oversights but “with malicious intent” – you can be pretty damn sure you’ll be making the list.

Highlights include Danish Iskilde, Hildon from the U.K. and, if you really feel like splurging, a $42 glass of Walakea.
