Six Unimportant Things That Get Me Pissed

Otin tagged me so I guess I'm it. Well, 1/6 of it anyway. If you don't know the drill, if you get tagged by someone you have to copy the post...well in your own words. Ya know, like a FB thing, which I never look at anymore cuz I'm too busy reading everyones blogs! Ok here we go! Here are six unimportant things that piss me off:

1. I don't care if you borrow my stuff. My hairbrush, my hairdryer, shampoo, razor handle (puhleazze put your OWN blade on it!)...what ever you need you are welcome to borrow it from me. BUT PUT THE DAMN THING BACK!!! HOW MANY FREAKING TIMES HAVE I TOLD YOU THIS?? IT MAKES ME NUTS!!

2. Look, the recycling bags are RIGHT NEXT to the trash can, which is RIGHT NEXT to the counter. SERIOUSLY, am I the ONLY person in this house that can put a water bottle into the recycling? Why must EVERYONE leave it on the counter NEXT TO the trash can? I don't get it!

3. Aren't dishwashers in restaurants more powerful than residential ones? I thought they were. Then how come I always get the wine glass with lipstick stains? It's really annoying. Oh and crud on the fork. Gak.

4.Umm, hellooo. I'm the customer. I'm either ready to pay or I have a question. Could you PUHLEEZE get off your stupid cell phone with your stupid friend about your stupid date last night. YOU are stupid and you will probably ALWAYS be stupid so hang up the damn phone!!

5.Why the hell does wine have to be fattening? Seriously, I like having a glass (or 2) in the evenings. Is this why I can't lose weight? You know, that really pisses me off. I work out, I eat well, my latte is skinny. Here's the deal. 1 glass of wine (1/5 of a bottle) has about 240 calories. That's 500 extra cal a night (yes, I'm rounding up to make life easier). Do that 7 times and you have 3500 extra calories a week. That's an average gain of 1 pound per week!! This sooo much sucks!!

6. How come weekends are only 2 stinking days and work is 5 days? That totally sucks. How about 4 weekend days and 3 work days. No. Not quite right. Why can't we just retire and spend all days the way I did today. I had a book, a pool, a float, and some ribs with Rendezvous Dry Rub. FANTASTIC! Ummm, no wine though. Damn it.

TAG! You're it!

I hate when you get a dirty glaas when you go out to eat! Also, I don't know if you know, but the real tag call for six unimportant things that make you happy, but I just did that one so I decided to reverse it! LOL!

I often wonder that about wine myself...I run three times a week, but still can't drop one stinking pound.

O said...

the secret is to drink is small sips - then all that exercise you get from repeatedly raising the glass to your mouth makes up for the extra calories!

At least I can say exactly where my marvelous all-over flab comes from - 50% from Pinot Grigio, 50% from Pinot Noir and 50% from Chenin Blanc.
Be proud.

1. YES YES YES, oh and YES!

2. Frickin people. They suck.

3. Have I mentioned by obsessions with cleanliness?

4. Cell phones are a curse. This obviously does not apply to me (as she lovingly strokes her pink blackberry)

5. Why is everything remotely tasty, or enjoyable or addictive bad for us? I mean, who wants to eat tofu anyway?

6. I am currently intensively lobbying for a 7 day weekend.

OH.MY.GOD. I nearly cried when I read the wine caloric fact. But it's still worth it.

I gave you an award over at my blog!

i wonder if i can keep this to six...i'll give it a whirl later this week.

i refuse to believe that thing about wine and am giving up food in protest. because there's no way i can give up wine.

my sister had to knit a little leash for the scissors so people couldn't walk away with them because they were driving me INSANE by not putting them back where they belonged. the leash thing worked.

Hi everyone, sorry it took me so long to comment anything. At work I can look at blogs and comment on some, but not others. Weird...
Anyway thanks so much for reading!

Otin: I knew what it used to be, but I liked your idea and besides, that's what you tagged me for. Besides, even though I didn't intend it, this is sort of a bitch-blog anyway!

M81 or should I say OP: That's my thing. I walk the dogs daily plus work out with a trainer 3 times a week. Totally sucks. He keeps telling me to lose the wine. I dont wanna!

O: that's a really good idea. I think it also works with cake. I wonder how many ounces my fork is. If it's real silver you probably work off more calories. And will my expensive wine glasses use more calories to lift then the cheap ones? I think they might be heavier. I'll try to weigh them on my day off and let you know!

Ext: We are soo close! I'd rather have the oakey chardonnay than the pinot grigio, but I love pinot noir! Chenin Blanc is good too...what's your favorite brand? I'll have to try it. Ever heard of Sebaka from So Africa?

VEG: 1. You feel my pain, thank you!
2. These are my own stinking kids (and bonus kids as well) you'd think they learn. Husband learned, why can't they??
3.I think you may have mentioned it
4.I'm totally attaced to my iPhone, but I also have manners. I lovingly tell her I have to set her down for a sec to talk to the lady behind the counter.
5. HATE tofu. Sorry, I just don't get it. Yuk!
6. Thanks for you support on the weekend!

FG: Hooray! I'm so excited!!! It's my first one! I can't wait to hop over there to see it! Thank you thank you thank you!!

Jul: I'm totally curious to see what gets under your skin. You seem so cool and collected from my little corner of the world. Show it! I love the leash idea, but 2 problems:
1. I don't know how to knit
2. I think I'd go nuts cuz there would be leashes all over my bathroom!

I missed you on chat, the pop out messed up on my end!

I'd rather have someone borrow my razor before someone borrowed my toothbrush....

These are such good ones! Wine having calories is really the pits, though.
