Okay, you've been warned. It's been a rough few days with the house and I'm feeling "snarky", so read ahead at your own risk. Recently, these things have really been bothering me. And, if some of these things include you, I apologize. I still love you. I just don't enjoy you as much as I otherwise might!
So, without further ado, here are my current pet peeves:
1. Background music on blogs. I come to your blog to READ. If I want to hear Hey There Delilah (please not again!) or Who Am I? or Homesick or worse, Jesus, Take the Wheel, I will use my iPod. Thank you.
2. Those Lilypie ticker things. Now, maybe I could make an exception for an upcoming baby or adoption, but that is about all I can imagine. I mean, who truly cares that Brooke is currently 186 months, 4 days, and 6 hours old or that I have 16 months, 3 days, and 12 hours until my next vacation! And some people have a ticker for every one of their 13 children!!! Good grief people!
I think I am going to start a rebel ticker site. My tickers will be for things truly worth celebrating. Things like "I have gone 416 days without exercising." or "I have eaten too much chocolate for 182 days in a row!" Now that sounds more like it!
3. Hair repair in public. I was sitting in church yesterday, listening to a great sermon (you can listen to it here), and two rows in front of me was a lovely young lady, who felt compelled to adjust, and readjust her ponytail numerous times, complete with making sure every single strand of hair was caught up in the holder and every possible "wrinkle" was smoothed out of her head. WE WERE IN CHURCH! There are restrooms right outside the door with enormous mirrors if you find this can't wait until after the thirty-minute sermon.
Now, is it just me or do these things annoy you too? I know. I know. It's probably just me.
