people who overfill the icecube tray.

oh no I love that.  I love it when they all come out gigantic and barely fit in your cup

baah, when you break them out of the tray though they never come out in one nice piece, its ice shard city.  then you dump them into the bin and the shards just build up and fester till you have to clean the thing out.

Oh man I love the shards.  You and I probably wouldn't make good roommates :P

Ok.  So we're good.  Crushed setting rocks.

Getting all the way to the movie theater before realizing I forgot my money.  Going back home (20 min each way) and being too annoyed & disgusted to go back.  Maybe tomorrow.
That sucks. I always have this fear every time I'm about to walk into the theater that I've actually got no cash on me. So far, it's all been irrational but I know one day I'll walk in, go to buy a ticket and open an empty wallet.

A bit cheaper alternative and something like what I use is the mold:

But the cubes are not perfect.  I often saw the bartenders use an ice pick to mold the cube when in Tokyo.  Drinks sometimes take a while to prepare.
