Pet Peeves (from notecard)

Books that don't resolve themselves, especially books that are really plugs for a computer game
Words being used incorrectly, especially in a professional setting -- publications or teachers
The Same Damn Noise/phrase/song over and over and over
Opinion being presented as fact
Flagrant disrespect for good teachers
Bad grammar and bad spelling -- Tommy escapes because he tries to improve so damn hard!
Bigots. Racists. Snobs.
Getting interrupted.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
