I had a good day today, so I decided to make some lists of things that irritate me – this makes sense, no?
Really irritating – People who stand still on the escalator going down. (Seriously? SERIOUSLY?)
Somewhat irritating – People who stand still on the escalator as it escalates. (Sometimes excusable…)
Okay by me – People who skip up or down the escalator. Bonus points for flapping their hands and singing, “tra-la-la-la-la”. (I may have done this today…)
Really irritating – Guys who call me, “little girl”. (I will flip out and bitch you out. Just to warn you.)
Somewhat irritating – Guys who call me, “sweetie”, “pumpkin”, “cupcake” (or any baked good for that matter).
Okay by me – Guys who feel no need to give me a nickname and act like a normal, cool dude.
Biscuit – another baked good. I call my dog, “Biscuit.” Therefore, you may not call me “Biscuit.”
Really irritating – Couples who call each other “baby.”
Somewhat irritating – Couples who call each other “honey.”
Okay by me – Couples who call each other by their actual names.
Really irritating – Books whose characters know everything instantly just to make the storyline progress more quickly.
Somewhat irritating – Books whose characters learn things as the storyline progresses too quickly.
Okay by me – Good books with good characters and normally-paced storylines. Need I say more?
Really irritating – Crying babies or whiny toddlers.
Somewhat irritating – Children in general.
Okay by me – The twins who play Hope on the FOX show, “Raising Hope.”
Really irritating – All reality television shows.
Somewhat irritating – Shows that are intense and fun to watch (The Event), but have HORRIBLE actors that have nothing redeeming about them except for their looks (*cough* Sarah Roemer *cough*).
Really irritating – The fact that Blogger won’t let me copy and paste links.
Somewhat irritating – The fact that Blogger won’t let me embed videos onto my blog so you can enjoy them. (This also goes up with really irritating, but some balance was needed…)
Okay by me – Anyone who can tell me how to fix this!
I’m irritated. Wine might help…
Really irritating – Guys or girls who wear too much cologne/perfume. What are you trying to cover up??
Somewhat irritating – Guys or girls who don’t wear enough cologne/perfume. Why won’t you cover up??
Okay by me – Guys or girls who have good hygiene and good noses to know when they need a little something-something.
Really irritating – Busy, bustling cities.
Somewhat irritating – Houses with acreage.
Okay by me – Abandoned houses, ghost towns, and creepy buildings. Life After People is my guilty pleasure!
Really irritating – Chicks/dudes who spend all of their blogspace whining about things they find irritating.
Somewhat irritating – Chicks/dudes who spend all of their blogspace talking about pointless things.
Okay by me – Chicks/dudes who spend all of the blogspace whining about pointless, irritating things whilst including pictures.
Sweet potato pancakes
topped with cranberry-apple butter in front of a Christmas tree that has been put up ridiculously early.
My picture quota is now fulfilled.
This post took me three hours to write/find pictures/edit.
I’m going to bed now.
