long story short, i was called on them and i relented. at most they are flags. liking nicolas cage or carlos mencia would be a very large, very red flag; but nonetheless does not the gavel bang, so to speak.
cut to: today.
another flag was noted (brought to mind by the tangential comment of an actual funny comedian, which means not the one mentioned above). having a perpetually disgusting microwave. granted, i do not microwave a ton of food, and extre-emely rarely at someone else's house do i use said appliance (for just that reason). but when i need to and all manner of disgusting food bits are encrusted hither and yon.. i am repulsed.
crack that one, you cunning arbiter.
you can hear it in what we say, you can see it in what we do
