Behodar: Bought a box of scorched almonds. Got them home and realised that they're dark chocolate. Not only did I not realise that they existed, but Nestle has decided to give them exactly the same box design as the normal milk chocolate ones.

Lately 2 times out of 3 I click on "your profile" link (on PC) and page changes to FORD advert URL. Not cool. Just a minute ago specifically aimed at clicking exactly into the link and straight into FORD page. WTF?

Going to Geekzone, finding Search (which is so easy to spot btw), clicking it and typing the search term, then realising the cursor doesn't automatically go to the search box, clicking on the search box, start typing again....

The fact that my Logitech MX Master mouse seems to have developed a Bluetooth Gremlin so that it no longer wakes the iMac and I have to use a trackpad first to re-enable it.
