Things that are ANNOYING

Maybe I am just a bitch, but I find myself increasingly annoyed by well, lots of things.

1) When people are using the microwave, and then stop it with 1 second left. One second is not going to overcook your food. Or infiltrate it with any more toxic microwaves than the food has already been subjected to. If you do not like the beep, at least push clear or stop so you can see the time again. I hate it when it is 1 second o'clock.

2) When people act like their car is so flipping nice that they must take up more than one parking space. You are not cool. I want to key your car just because you think you are cool and took up two spots. In fact, your car is in more danger of being damaged by me than it would have been had you parked normal and heaven forbid someone park in the space next to you. I also do not like it when people do park in just one space, but are too stupid to realize that the lines are meant to be a guide for where to park, and instead they park 1/2 way out into the driving lane, or 1/2 way into the opposite side of the parking aisle.

3) When someone disregards an idea I have, but ten seconds later is either:
a) Exclaiming how they have come up with the best idea and completely reiterate
everything I just said.
b) Telling me how they heard the idea from another person and it is the best thing since
sliced bread and proceed to tell me about the idea like I have never heard of it.

4) When drivers fail to use a turn signal. I am always the one stuck at a corner trying to turn, and if the oncoming person would have spend all of the .0000000000001 of a second it takes to push the little lever up or down I could have avoided waiting for the next 67 cars to turn and get where I was going.

5) People who do not eat. Or who eat only one bowl of oatmeal and that is all they need for the whole day. Or who can make a dish and eat the same thing for 5 days in a row.

6) In reference to #5, leftovers. Yuck. There are very few foods I am cool with eating after they have developed a slimy film and have become soggy from sitting in my fridge over night. They include:
Mixed Veggies (the kind you buy in a bag frozen)
Mashed Potatoes
Goulash (and only Krista's recipe)
Everything else, no way.

7) Barney. A large awkward purple dinosaur that sings songs, does magic things...creepy. Equally creepy - the over joyous children who talk to Barney, hug Barney, play along with the deluded idea that he is real or even fun for that matter.

8) Customer service representatives who spend 25 minutes of my valuable time, only to tell me they are unable to solve my problem and must send me to someone higher up, at which point I spend an additional 25 minutes telling that person what I already told the first person.

9) People who forward e-mails that are obviously ridiculous - you will not get $10 for each person you forward it to, you will not have 87 years of bad luck if you do not send it to 22 people in the next 8 minutes, an image of your true love will not show up on the screen if you forward it to 18 people and then after 4 minutes press Ctrl Shift ~928, Tom Cruise did not start this petition and President Obama will not give every person who signs it $1,500 if 1 million people put their names on it and forward it to 20 of their friends. Stop the chain of stupidity, please people.

I am getting mad, so I am done for now.

out of the loop...

OK, so I'm obviously a little bit behind on the whole which-singer-did-something-crazy-on-tv-that-is-getting-them-shunned-by-everyone thing....even though I'm certain someone else has done worse.

So I come across an article about all of Adam Lambert's upcoming tv appearances being cancelled. So I do a little googling and see that Adam Lambert kissed a dude during his performance...and had some dude fake giving him a bj...among other questionable actions these were the two most talked about.

I'm here to say, what's the big flippity deal? Britney, Madonna & Christina made out on live tv, in a similar situation...and people thought it was the coolest dang thing since pre-wrapped sliced right there there is absolutely NO grounds for the kiss to be any big deal. Besides, I saw the pictures, and I'm not completly convinced the keyboard player was in fact male.

As for the fake bj, have you ever watched ANY of Britney's performances? The entire t…

snow, seriously? I hate winter.

It has been 2 months and 3 days since I posted last. I suck at life.
But that's beside the point, because I'm posting now. And you know what is happening now, that sucks even more than's snowing. It is October 10 and it's flipping snowing.
I don't really remember ever seeing summer, let alone going through fall and now all of a sudden it's winter. I am seriously not ok with that.
I should have been a Mexican. So I could live in the carribean part of Mexico, where it's warm all the time, and where cold is 60ish degrees. There's hurricanes and sharks and shit, but it's warm.

In other's snowing. And it's seriously making me depressed.
That and it's 2:42 a.m. and I have this strange desire to clean out my closet. I pretty much feel like a lunatic at this point, but those 2 five hour energy shots I took are really working....quite well in fact....
I'm sure I'll be a little disgruteled in the "morning" w…

Customer Dis-service

It never ceases to amaze me how inconsiderate and/or un/mistrained and/or just plain stupid some people are.

My friend Nikki's kids had a birthday party this weekend. I asked Nikki what to get them, and we got to talking about how expensive the fancy birthday cakes are now-a-days. I had one of those moments where a light comes on and a chorus sings "AHHHAAA" in the background - I was trained how to make all those fancy cakes (and I did a pretty dang good job at it I might add) at Cold to save Nikki money and avoid her headaches by giving her kids some lame toy, I offered to make them the cakes they wanted.

I know how to bake, but I remembered that we used frozen sheet cakes at Cold Stone and they worked really well because they're level and dense and yummy. So I called Grocery Store with a Bakery #1. I won't use names to protect the identity and reputation of the rest of the store, which I've not had an issue with in the past...just the bakery.
