Some bloggers share a list of 100 things about themselves. A list that long about me would bore you to tears. Since I'm feeling lazy today, however, I thought I'd share a few things that I don't really like. Sorry to start w/ the negative. I'll put together a "stuff I like" blog soon.
Front doors with Oval glass windows in them.
Vinyl siding --I didn’t say I don’t have it, just that I don’t like it .
Precious Moments figurines
The word “Ginormous” --I’ve tried to say it a couple of times, but it just isn’t a good fit for me. Kind of like the tube top I tried to wear last summer
Skulls for Halloween decorations --This stems from a trip to London about 18 years ago. Some loser was selling REAL skulls on the street. How disrespectful. I’ve been scarred ever since.
Underwear that doesn’t fit right
Snacks before, during and after kids’ sporting events—and practices. Hello! What happened to water and orange slices during half-time?
When people say, “___ years of age” instead of “____ years old.”
When people say, “Give it to Donna and I” instead of “Donna and me.” Does sounding fancy make it right? I think not. Or, when they are a little gun-shy and they say, "Give it to Donna or myself."
When people say, “At this point in time” instead of “Now.”
The phrases “Bring it!” and “Bring it on!” It just sounds so aggressive. It stresses me out.
Suburban teenage girls who talk tough (see "Bring it on" above)
When I act like a jerk
Alcohol in my sweets-- rum cake, alcohol in wedding cakes, etc.
Designer originals and prices
Moms judging other moms
All right, "a few" turned into quite a list. I feel like such a grouch for having written all of this. What things just don't do it for YOU?
