There are lots of fat pigeons in Paris.
Pretty sure economy plus/economy comfort is exactly the same as normal economy used to be in the 90s.
I love this #MakeAMovieCanadian trend.

You make no sense sometimes. For example, why isn’t the word aforementioned just BEFOREmentioned? It makes sense because aforementioned things are things that you mentioned before.
I get that the words afore and before have different etymologies — what with the -fore in afore coming from the dative case of for and the -fore in before coming from its adverbial derivative — so maybe there are rules about which prefixes can go with each kind of root. I don’t know. I’m not a linguist. But I still stand by my point because modern English barely uses grammatical case and absolutely no one uses the word afore anymore. Not even my parents, and they’re super old.
Anyway, all of this is to say that I’m going to try to make beforementioned a thing.* Hope that’s ok.
*Not really. I’m a math/economics person so I spend way more time thinking about numbers than words (which is a very good thing considering that this is the kind of shit I think about when I’m supposed to be writing papers). But I probably would if I were majoring in linguistics. You know, just to make a statement against prescriptivism.

If Don’t Stop Believin’ reminds you more of Glee than The Sopranos then we can’t be friends.
More things that would change if I was in charge of everything:
The tags on the inside of fitted sheets would be in the middle of the foot end so that people would be able to align their sheets properly on the first try.
Whose stupid idea was it to put the label in the corner seam, anyway?! What purpose does that serve?!?
I should really have more power and influence because I clearly understand the Important Issues. Until then, this is my temporary solution:

Stop eating chocolate in bed. No matter how careful you think you’re being, you always wake up covered in it.
