A bit more than a peeve but having to say goodbye to a furball when you know it's the right thing but the worst decision to have to make.  He has gone to chase balls in the clouds on a walk with Ki no

What an unpleasant, nasty, thoughtless little post you've made there. I'm sure you don't give a damn that there are people on this forum who have lost people they loved to Covid, do you? That wou

I don't think that's a metaphor, but whether or not it is, I think you could have found a better way to express yourself.

Vidi, vici, veni.

This was on the masthead of my engineering school's student newspaper. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Thank you, I think, for taking the time to personally point out the change in word order!

Grrrr.

It's Veni, vidi vici. I came, I saw, I conquered.

And who was it that upset you....

Noobs end up peeved
encountering alpha'd sleeves
because they believed

in wearing wonky fitmesh shirtsleeves.

Wondering why I'm standing so still

Wondering why I dont walk, but slide along stiff legged.

Wondering if there's  a bug

Wondering what the hell is going on.

Finding a button on my head hud which fixes it. 

OFFS! Morons are us.........

People who don't put out demos for accessories and stuff. Especially skins and ears, I know a few people who don't do it. I really like the product, but I am not gonna take a gamble on how well it fits my look or body, if there is no demo to test it out.

A corollary to @LittleMe Jewell's peeve of "life."

Physical pain. Chronic, physical pain. It is really a bummer and peeves me no end.

On a happy note, I do like the opiate pain killers. They may work on the pain but mainly they make me care much, much less about it.

Peeve: Opiate pain killers are highly addictive and I don't feel like adding that to my list of "oh crap" things. So I have to be very careful, to the point of not using them when I need them.

Additional peeve: There really isn't another medicine that works even a little bit, and no therapy, etc. (Many doctors seen, many opinions, all agree.)

On a happy note, today is a day I "get to" medicate and so I'm having a grand old time. :) Wheee!

I love doing loopy SL. As long as I stay away from strobing light (eek) or sitting on a SL swing (which make me ill), SL is a real treat. I'll take photos and wonder wtf? or brilliant! about them tomorrow. :)

I'm so bloody sick of chronic pain.

Also peeve: People. Because, always: People

*bloody = binge watching an Australian show, mate

@RowanMinx My feet still have some sort of icky tactile memory of Persian cat hairballs. Our house had large, ceramic tile flooring throughout. So it was cold. Doing a bleary-eyed, stumble in the dark to get to the bathroom for an ill-timed pee only to have "SQUELCH!" happen. The tile made it all the colder, all the more oozy between the toes, slipperier... more than any other floor surface on which it has been my pleasure to tromp on a cat fur ball in bare feet.

That said, I have been without a feline friend for over a year, and I don't see a respite to that. I would take a squelch followed by me screaming expletives over cat-less any day. :) 

GiGi couldn't bring herself to post after reading your peeve...

Snotty peeves today, about SL Flickr:

Oh so many peeves:

  • Badges instead of comments. Bleck.
  • People who post in every group, whether it fits the group or not. (Pastel fairies frolicking in flowers in a group for dark, sinister pix.)
  • Every photo on a tilted camera angle.
  • Over exposed photos on every single one.
  • Bad pose ball porn. If you're gonna do porn at least try to make it interesting. :)
  • People with average, at best, photos who have 6K followers.
  • People who follow you who will never look at any of your photos again (they are following 6K people).
  • Over edited photos on every single picture.
  • Flickr "support"

You kids, get off my lawn!

This one drives me crazy.  If every photo, or even 95% of them, are turned sideways or mostly sideways, it tells me the photographer has no true skill or imagination.

It hurts my eyes and I just flip past those.

I admit to having done the odd, here and there, tilted angle thing, but I did think about it and used it for a reason (often to create a bit of tension). It is called a Dutch angle, which is funny because it was originally called "Deutsch" angle due to a WWI thing, but, well... it got effed up in the translation. :) 

But yeah, I've now made it a "policy" (lol) to not like any photo using it without an obviously GOOD reason to use it. Being able to "fit" the avatar from head to toe on the diagonal is NOT a good reason.

There is a corollary peeve to this, in two parts, and I think these are usually just due to inexperience more than anything, and so they get a pass. They are: Shooting with the horizon clearly visible and it is slightly tilted. Like not enough to be an actual Dutch angle but just... off. The other is taking every photo, especially interiors, from a low vantage point and so all of the vertical lines converge. This one is particularly in "the weeds" but hey, I'm a snot. 

ETA: These opinions, btw, are the Flickr equivalent of me being a "grammar Nazi" to others. The horror! :)

My guess that they just follow people randomly to get a follow in return. I use a separate flickr account for SL related stuff to check some new things from some of my favorite creators, so I end up adding them to my favorite list to keep the track on.

I don't post comments, join raffles or giveaways, I'm not a part of a single group either, and I don't follow anyone (to check creators' pages I use good old bookmarks in browser). Yet I got over 50 followers and aside of a few empty accounts without any pictures/favorites (most likely bots), the rest of them do post/favorite SL related stuff. Mostly bloggers, some creators I never heard about. So considering my flickr activity, they, either manually or via some script, go through random flickr pages, check who favorited that exact picture and follow them.
