10 things I hate:
The jackasses who jump/butt in line in front of you. I want to go Ninja on them and claw their eyes out.
2. Skinny people who say, "I'm so fat!"
I really hate them. They probably get pregnant on the first try too. Bitches.
3. Infertility, and every shitty thing that goes with it
Definitely no need to explain this one to you guys. This item alone could spawn dozens of specific examples.
4. Throwing up
Really, do I need to elaborate?
5. Being hot
I sweat like a hog when I'm anywhere that doesn't have air conditioning. Then I start to feel like fly paper and that's just icky.
6. Being mocked
Maybe it's a product of being the baby of 4 kids, I don't know. I get irrationally pissed when someone mocks me, I've actually pinched my husband so hard that I've left a bruise when he's been stupid enough to do it.
I really, really freak about them. The only thing worse than a snake is a water snake. I think I might have peed myself a little just typing that.
8. The fact that I am completely bereft of any artistic talent at all
I can't sing or paint or draw or play a musical instrument. I'm sorta funny, so I pretend like that makes up for it.
Really anything that stings. I'm pretty allergic so everywhere within a 1 foot radius of the sting gets insanely swollen and red and hot and itchy and painful and whatnot. Nothing about that is good.
10. Lazy salespeople
You know the ones, all chocked full of attitude? The ones that make you feel like you are seriously inconveniencing them by requesting that they DO THEIR DAMN JOB. Instead of talking on the phone, or chatting with their co-worker, or working hard to emit a constant vibe of general discontent. Just knock it off, seriously. If you don't want to be here, go home. Stop taking your employer's money just to be a bitch to me.
10 things I love:
1. My daughter
I already went on and on too much in a previous post about her, so no need to rehash it all here.
2. My husband
He drives me completely insane sometimes and is impossible to live with, but he knows it. And
he truly loves me.
3. Rice pudding
Particularly Kozy Shack. Mmmmmm.
4. Cured meat products
Bacon, jerky, ham etc. Yeah man.
I've been known to stop on the side of the road and pick them. Usually we then end up with bugs in our house from them, but I don't care.
6. Taking a shower
My internal thermostat has been hopelessly broken for years, so I'm blazing hot all the time. Taking a nice, cool shower always refreshes me and wipes the sweaty slime away. (Boy, that sure painted a pretty picture, eh?)
Blankets, sweaters, socks, whatever. It is just the softest stuff in the world and so damn cozy.
I'm a decent cook, and really enjoy doing it. I make an huge holy mess in the process, but the food always turns out decent enough that Kevin only grumbles a little.
9. Krispy Kreme donuts
If you know them, I don't need to say any more. If you don't, there aren't any words that can articulate their magic.
I already mentioned how much I love taking a shower, but this time I'm talking about bodies of water. Oceans, beaches, lakes, ponds, streams, brooks, waterfalls, all of it. I'm enormously soothed by any kind of water, which probably explains why my best vacations were in kick ass water places (Hawaii and St. John, USVI).
Gee, do you think the fact that 4 of the 10 things I love are related to food means anything? Could it possibly have some connection to the extra 20+ pounds I'm carrying around right now? Nah.
Okay, I'm sure most of my regular blogging buddies have already done this. So I'll tag some relatively new people:
Get to it, ladies!
