Negativity Meme

Hello lovely bloggy peeps. I'm swiping a meme today from Warty Mammal, one of my favorite bloggers of all time. Her humor keeps me on my toes. And it's been FOREVER since I've done a beloved meme! So thank you, Warty!

Foods which disgust the crap out of me: Tomatoes in any uncooked form, mushrooms, olives, tapioca - anything that feels like little bugs or rubber bands in my mouth

Movies/TV shows I loathe: Dang it! Two questions in and I'm stuck. I don't watch TV anymore. But when I did, I hated anything on those women's channels. Romantic, weepy crap. And most kid stuff. Oh, and soap operas. As for movies, horror. All of it.

Music genres I loathe: Y'all know what I like - heh.

But what don't I like? Check it out:

The sleeves! Gah!

Magazine which annoys me: Vogue. Cosmopolitan. Trendy women's magazines. Feeding our vanity and appetites for more. I'll stop here, before I get rabid.

Makes me cranky: A cranky husband. It just flows downstream.

Makes me cranky II: No chocolate in the house and no money to get more. Dang. Anyone? Anyone?

Pisses me off: Drivers who don't use their turn signals. And cut me off in traffic. And pull out right in front of me then drive 10 miles under the speed limit for the next five miles. Yeah, I tailgait 'em.

Pisses me off II: Parents who neglect and ignore their kids. Let them run crazy in public.

Makes me impatient: My children ignoring a request to do something. Ignoring multiple requests. Gah!

Makes me impatient II: Being in line behind someone who's got a lot to purchase, then they wait till after they get their total to start digging in their bag - for a freakin' checkbook! How hard is it to put down the cell phone and get most of that check pre-written while your stuff's being rung up? Especially when you need to put your license number on there?!? C'mon people!

Makes me impatient III: When I get up and let the dogs out in the morning, to come back and find my Hunny has commandeered the throne - and will be there awhile. Really? I won't be thirty seconds. That doesn't happen often, though. I love my Hunny.

People I hate: Hate's a strong word. But yeah, there are people who drive me insane. Borderline personalities who need to be close to me. And my family. Step off.

I could care less about: housework. Politics. Global warming. Any cause that's politically charged and ready to explode in conversation.

Annoys the crap out of me: My kids LOADING THE DISHWASHER THE WRONG WAY!!!

Annoys the crap out of me II: Umm. Did I mention the dishwasher? Not much annoys the crap out of me. Oh! No, never mind. Wait ... no. I'm good.

Steal this. It's fun. But now I'm cranky.

Until I write again ...


P.S. Check it out - a blog called Sunday Stealing swiped this post! They, too, love a good meme!

Earlier this week I would have stolen your negativity meme but now I am feeling too good!

Leenie said...

I agree with you on most points. It is also funny that you have the same problem as my DH with slidy tomatoes, tapioca (my favorite comfort food) mushroooms and olives (favorite pizza topping) and rubber bands (okay they don't have a lot of flavor but they fill up your stomach). You don't like raisins either do you. BTW any luck with the carrot cake recipes?

Leenie said...

Forgot to mention that I would kill for a fresh garden tomato. One still warm from the sun, just picked with a little salt. But that is MONTHS away.

Better than therapy!

Oh my! You are having a cranky day. I'll have to wait & steal the meme one day when I feel like cutting loose on all the annoyances in my life. But, most of yours pretty well covered mine too.

So, you must not like okra either, huh? I only wish there were more foods I didn't like.

Cranky much? Hey like MPM said better than therapy .. cheaper too

Diane said...

I don't want to be cranky. I have fresh coffee in front of me and I'm not coughing (yet). Life is good!

Hi Flea-

I'm Judd Corizan from the blog Sunday Stealing. Every week we rip a meme off someone's blog. Today we chose yours. We give you full credit and link back to your blog. The great thing is that a lot of previous "victims" such as yourself have become regular players! We usually publish the blog between 3 and 6 PM EST Saturday. We usually get between 50 to 80 people who play and comment on each other's responses. And a lot of our players are previous victims of our theft like you! We hope you play along in the weeks to come! Thank you and have a great day...

I absolutely can NOT stand my dishwasher being loaded badly. But I thought I was the only that anal retentive. Glad to know I'm not alone in this little club. It's nice to have company in nutville.

Oh, Flea, I love you even more now, seeing as how we MUST be related. I have a couple of exceptions, tho.
1. Anything child related, since cats ignore everything as a rule of good breeding. 2. I would be ecstatic if someone WOULD load my dishwasher for me (emptying it would be even better). 3. I love a fresh tomato on white bread with lots of salt, pepper, and mayo. Since I am no longer able to have white bread, tho, there's just no point.

We're restricted to being negative in just one post? We are going to have a little tension in our get together, I see. I will be munching on raw tomatoes while watching a weepy chick flick:-)
