Whoo Hooo! It’s time to get yer crank on! Being a crankyass on the downlow (what? It’s *not* on the downlow? Are you sure? Fine. Whatever), it follows that I would love this meme. It gives me unfettered time to just be a poohead. YEY!
Foods which disgust the crap out of me:
I really, really dislike olives. Just the texture alone is enough to barf me out. ICK. And ever be it known that am betraying my Italian heritage by admitting it in public.
TV show I loathe:
Married with Children (which someone in this household watches all too often) – insipid, appealing to the very lowest common denominator and just plain awful. I hope each of the actors enjoys the money they got from dumbing down the Universe on that one.
Movie I loathe:
The Royal Tennenbaums – seriously, this was a God-awful piece of crap if ever I saw one. In fact, I saw it in the theatre (yes, I paid cash money to sit through it) and was absolutely appalled at it. It even got good reviews (which is why I went. I know. I know.) but every time I see it come up in my Tivo listings, I recall how awful an experience that was.
Music genres I loathe:
That whole teeny-bopper schtick that brings us idiots who cannot sing and are all image – The Jonas Brothers in particular. I saw them (unwillingly, I might add) when they appeared on the 2008 finale of AI and was so horrified that I almost turned the station. It’s insipid and empty. I still don’t get the appeal of Lady GaGa. (Notes that I am officially old.)
Magazine which annoys me:
Anything about guns. I have never opened one, of course, so I’m merely speculating here. But ewww.
Makes me cranky at restaurant:
Poor service. Especially when it’s not crowded and I see you chatting your ass off with your co-workers in the corner. I’ve actually gotten up and gone over to an individual in that situation. Yeah, that’s one place where my light-and-love-o’meter doesn’t seem to function well.
Makes me cranky in public:
People who are inordinately loud. And fighting. That’s really something I cannot handle at all. I remember a time when that happened in a restaurant waiting area and I had to physically remove myself because it bothered me so much (especially on an energetic level). Ick. People – take your fights to a private area.
Makes me cranky in general:
Lots of things -no internet access at home, having to do 100 things as soon as I get up to be sure pets are fed and watered (and this morning, cleaning up two separate cat barf incidents – FUN!), people standing in my way at the store (move, for pity sake!) …. alas, I could go on and on and on.
Pisses me off at home:
Someone here eating the very last bit of every damn food we have. I have to hide things I like so it doesn’t get eaten. Also too – clutter. All of my own making, mind you. Still. I hate it.
Pisses me off at work:
Really, don’t get me started here! heh I DESPISE people standing in my area and chatting – about kids, dogs, politics – whatever. Move away from my space. Also (too) – one co-worker is very nosy and if I have anything on my desk, he’ll give it a once over to see if someone is getting stuff (my time, for one thing) he isn’t. He’s very “notice me” about stuff and even though I know where it comes from, I hate it.
Pisses me off in general:
Stupid people who cannot be bothered to look things up to see if they’re true before sending them around in email. My aunt sent me an email with a picture of President and Mrs. Obama dressed up as a pimp and hooker and besides being wrong on way too many levels, she *had to ask* if it was true because she got it in some random email saying “look what he’s doing to the White House by dressing this way” – REALLY? You have to ask if that’s true? REALLY? Because I love my aunt to the moon and back, I went to Snopes.com and got the info on it being photoshopped and sent it to her. But what the fuck, people? If you get something like that, at the very least, DO SOME RESEARCH (you know, use your damn brain!) and see if it’s true before you forward it to your RWNJ friends.
Makes me impatient at home:
Impatient at home? Hmm – nothing makes me impatient, really. The only thing I can think of is when my cats are indecisive about going upstairs or not. It’s like “Pick one – up or down – and move already!”
Makes me impatient at work:
When the aforementioned people stand in my area and chat. I really hate chit-chat and especially other people’s chit chat. Move on, already!
Makes me impatient in public:
Sitting in traffic. OH MY GOD. I hate that.
Celebrity I hate:
George Clooney – he’s smarmy and smug. I don’t think he’s even all that talented and I have NO idea why anyone finds him attractive. Same with Brad Pitt. Phonies are one (of the many) thing(s) I cannot abide.
Music artist I hate:
The aforementioned Jonas Brothers. At least David Cassidy, Donny Osmond and those of my generation had, you know, actual talent. And didn’t natter on about being virgins or whatever stupid lying shit these people do. (Hint: I really, REALLY don’t give a shit about your sex life.)
I couldn’t care less about:
The sex life of anyone who is not me, anything having to do with Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and those of that ilk and most sports.
Annoys the crap out of me – weekdays:
That I now have to get up early and be at work at 8:30. Grrr.
Annoys the crap out of me weekends:
Nothing really. I love the weekends! :-)
Blogger’s habit that annoys you:
As mentioned ad nauseum earlier, don’t give me one word answers to meme questions. (Checks to be sure that she hasn’t done that in this one.) What is the point of that? Yes, I know. It’s your blog. You can do as you like. Just means I won’t read it. And you probably don’t care about that. Still. STOP THAT.
Feature on your blog you hate:
Nothing really now that Leanne has prettied it up. I’m always happy when I see it – it’s truly me.
Movie star you despise:
The aforementioned George Clooney and Brad Pitt. I don’t get the allure at all there. Oh, same with Julia Roberts. Her 15 minutes are up. Have been up for a long time.
Politician that you hate:
Oh my. Where to start here? There’s a wealth of them from which I can choose. I’ll just say that while I get that it takes a big ego and a very thick skin to even run for any kind of office, I still think it’s important to understand that you work for those who elected you. To put your ego and your interests and those that fill your pocket$ above what you were chosen to do is appalling. As it would be (and is) for those of us in the private sector. If you agree to uphold the tenets of the constitution, DO THAT. Don’t try to circumvent it (hi “dick” cheney) to accomplish world domination and more money for you and your little cronies.
All that said, I really dislike Sarah Palin – she’s an affront to all women everywhere who work hard, have integrity in what they do and don’t get all “high school vengeance” on people who they don’t like. (Don’t even get me started on her followers. Please.)
Ah! That felt good. (Too good. Ponders therapy again.)
