This one really shouldn't piss me off but it does. Reviews that start off with "If you're not a fan of..." or "You need to be a fan of... to appreciate..." piss me off. It's the arrogant presumption that implies that if someone disagrees with them it's because they're not one of the people they listed, and it just bugs me.

Yup, I share that pain. It's a bitch and a half.

Yeah tell me about it. Whats worse none of the meds really help (and i'm talking about some strong shit here!). Injections did help with the back pain but the leg pain seems to be a whole different kettle of fish.

Yeah, I'm yet to find a painkiller that really does the job for sciatica pain.

I suspect it's one of those things people say without really meaning it, like when someone says "I don't care what you think" to someone in an argument, when really they do.

I dunno, like I say it just irks me.

I reckon I've probably said it a couple of times, but not to suggest what you're saying - more along the likes of "look, if you've never liked what x director has done in the past for x reasons, this isn't gonna change your mind."

'If you don't like Family Guy it's unlikely you'll like Ted.' Nothing to do with being exclusive, more a way of helping to recommend or otherwise.

The transverse of this is that some films may escape that limitation. 'Even if you're not a fan of Star Trek, the 2009 film is thoroughly entertaining.'

My radiator has stopped working. The heat is on and the boiler working but no heat is coming through the radiator. To the tweed and fingerless gloves!

Go and get a radiator key and bleed the air out, it takes seconds.

Sadly the system I have means if you bleed it the pressure drops in the rest of the house and the other radiators stop working. Stupid design if you ask me.

Put more pressure into the system with the valve on the boiler, if its below 1 bar that is

The reverse does exist. "If you're not a fan of x then there's no way you'll like this" as a way of critic-proofing the film. You often see it with action films. "YOU ALWAYS HATED STALLONE, EMPIRE!!!!THIS IS A FILM FOR FANS!!!!!!!!"

Not pissed off more sad really it looks like friendship I value is over. Due to me mending my relationship with Mr HQ. Have tried to mend the fences again today but no joy.

A couple months ago I cut myself loose from a possilbe love triangle. It got to the stage I had no other choice than giving the friend the cold sholuder and keeping my distance. I was under the impression she was having an emotional affair with me and I couldn't keep our friendship as 'just friends.' End of the day I was a fool for allowing this to continue and previously I did try to sort it out.

I originally felt impress with myself for being mature about it and not feeling down in the dumps. Now however I am starting to feel rather pissed off about it after all these months. Oh well.

Oh so many things.

The placement I desperately need to do before I can go back and fight for HQ jnr looks like it's been delayed until best guess April which means it's April 2014 at least before I can go back and fight for him again. Until I know what day's this placement is going to be on I can't look for part time work so I'm stuck on benefits for even longer than I want to be. With the new bedroom tax I'll lose huge amount as well. Because I now have a "spare room" .

Mr HQ after nearly 3 & half years together is still delaying moving into together and still is reluctant to spend any real time with me.

I don't know when I'll be seeing little HQ again after my visit with him on Friday.

Pissed off, frustrated, and depressed.

I am pissed off because homersimpson_esq is hoarding my DVDs for nefarious purposes. Plus he can pull off wearing a ridiculous hat meaning I can't openly mock him as much as I'd like.

You haven't seen this hat, to be fair.

Not that it's any less ridiculous than the others, mind. But, y'know, just sayin'.
