This morning I was awake at five o’clock and could not go back to sleep. So I decided to get up and move some furniture around. Seriously. This is the kind of thing I find myself doing when I’m home alone. I vacuumed and did a bunch of bedding laundry and generally spent a lot of time taking things downstairs and bringing different things back upstairs. So basically, putting many things in many different places. Hmm. Writing it down like this makes it sound easy. It was not. Some of those things were big and awkward and heavy.
Now I’m tired, I have a sore shoulder, an aching wrist, a few bruises and a crappy attitude. The timing is perfect to answer an annoying question or two.
What do you find annoying, irritating or unbearable in these categories?
Candy – gooey, sticky, messy, chewy, sickeningly sweet. Does that cover all of it?
Song– constant repetition from outside sources, and even worse, inside my own head
Bad Habit– talking loudly on a cell phone in a public place.
School subject– before an exam, memorizing a bunch of hooey that you will never again need to know in this lifetime.
Personality Trait– refusing to listen to the other side of the story, forming an opinion without getting all the facts
Colour– flourescent lime green
Season– long, cold, dark, stormy, miserable winter
Animal– an annoying, irritating unbearable animal doesn’t really exist. Perhaps we should ask animals for their opinion of us.
Celebrity– the whole idea of being famous and having your personal life thrown out there to the wolves.
Foods – how we process things to death and then wonder why we’re dying from eating them
Tone of voice– high squeaky little girl baby talk from the mouth of an adult
Style of music– I really, really do not like Rap.
Vehicle– Any vehicle can be annoying given the right irritating driver.
Sound– crying, when you feel powerless to soothe the hurt
Event– anything that requires ridiculous amounts of money to pull off, when something simple and less lavish gets the same result.
Anything else? Oh, probably, but that’s enough negativity for one day, wouldn’t you say? I’m going to go ice my shoulder and sulk for a while. But it won’t be an unbearable sulk, just a mildly annoying one.

a lot of work but I bet you felt pleased with the result
I did – so I’m motivated to finish up today. Hopefully I’m smart enough to not start anything new…lol
Communication Messages on my answering machine that are given so quickly I cannot possibly write it all down (even after listening 4 times) or are given while also talking to someone else in the background….
I love lists… this was a good one!
I’ve done that – replaying a message over and over trying to figure it out. Then I think of some of the messages I’ve left myself…..lol
I hate that CVS pharmacy leaves a message on my answering machine EVERY DAY in which a robot voice tells me that it’s allergy season.
There, I *do* feel better after talking about it.
Gah – automated voice messages – don’t even get me started. 😉
I agree with you in most of your dislikes. Interestingly, just yesterday, David turned to a young woman in the checkout line at the grocery store told her she was rude, and asked her to stop talking so loudly on her cell phone.
Of course she didn’t stop talking, but she paused long enough to tell David he was rude. Speaking of animals, I think some of these youngsters were born in a barn. Dianne
Yep – and still live there. It’s inconsiderate, no question.
