Moaning Meme

Jessica the Rock Chick tagged me to let loose and rant ...
The Freelance Cynic started the Moaning Meme so that our readers could get to know the real us... the moaners and groaners behind our smiling, happy blogs.
He says
"...our blogs, the social tools of the 21st century,
are populated by memes listing our 'favourites,'
or our 'blessings,' or our 'funniest' moments.
In our efforts to be readable we have denied others
the one thing that makes us interesting -
our whining, moaning, complaining selves."

After reading this tell me, did you learn something new about me? Was I more interesting for having complained? =)

List 5 people who will be annoyed that I tagged them.

I really truly don't wish to annoy anyone - but I think these five will be great ranters, thus my selected five are:

Crystal
Sarge Charlie
Mel
Erin
Sandy



List 4 things that should go into room 101 and be removed from the face of the earth.

Only 4 things to be removed from the face of the earth?
Ok, I shall try to narrow it down...

1. Pink vs Pretty in Pink. WHY would Victoria's Secret have a fragrance called Pink and one called Pretty in Pink?? Men are probably the biggest shoppers in that store, and while I realize they aren't usually in there to pick up fragrances, my man was, and he just saw the word "Pink" and thought it was the same as my all time favorite "Pretty in Pink." Umm, why would VS do that?? Certainly, Pink is a nice scent, and I love, love, love that my hubby got me nicely scented shower gel and lotions. This *is not* a rant about what he bought for me, rather that VS makes things more complicated than they need to be for male shoppers. I would send the Pink scent to the room, so that there is no confusion with Pretty in Pink.

2. Chinese Food Drive Thru's. I was brave enough (or foolish in hindsight) to try our local "Quick Chinese Drive Thru." I am probably the pickiest person in the world when it comes to Chinese food - I have walked out of more Chinese restaurants than I have eaten in - so what on earth possessed me to try a Chinese drive thru?? Maybe it was because I had a sleeping baby in the back seat that I didn't want to drag in some place with me. Or maybe it was because my husband was away with work for the night and I wanted something to remind me of him. Whatever the reason I found myself ordering #17 and two egg rolls. It smelt delicious, I shall give it credit for that! I drove home, lugged baby, Chinese food and our wet swimsuits from the days adventure to our second floor apartment, and sat down to enjoy the yummy smelling meal. It was not to be... the food was nasty and I have sworn off Chinese Drive Thru's for life.

3. Mosquito's. They are absolutely useless and serve no purpose other than to annoy every human being.

4. Subtitles. I have tried. I really, truly have tried watching foreign films and reading my movie. But if I wanted to read I would pick up a book! Movies are suppose to be enjoyable, relaxing even. Reading your movie takes effort - you have to read the lines and figure out who is actually saying those lines. It's not for me. And since some people can do it, and enjoy it, they make me feel uncultured and down right stupid. So I say lets just get rid of them all!

List 3 things that people do that make me want to shake them violently.

I am easily humored by people and their simplicity or stupidity, so I have had a hard time thinking up these three. But if I had to shake people it would be for:

1. Talking to me through Judah. HELLO! I am a human being still. In fact, I was a human being BEFORE Judah was a human being. If he is skinny and underweight, or super fat, or abnormally tall, or rather average, or cute, or "too good looking to be a boy" or 8 lbs or 13 lbs (which he has been all of these things, according to other people, within days of each other) tell ME not him. My life is now all about him. Please make something about me. Even if it is just acknowledging me as the one who has caused all of his problems.

2. Not calling before coming over. And that is addressed solely to our maintenance men, who have the keys to get into the apartment if, while I am laying in bed and hear the door bell, chose to ignore it, will enter the apartment. So annoying. What would it hurt them to give a little call telling me they are coming over?

3. Driving slowly in the left lane. It bugs me. Especially on a 20 + hour road trip.


List 2 things I find myself moaning about:

1. The baby fat I have yet to lose. WHY does it take so long to come off?? Will it ever come off?

2. The house cleaner. She's been doing an awful job at vacuuming, putting the clothes away and cleaning the tile floors. I am thinking of firing her... can you fire yourself??

What 1 thing do the above answers tell me about myself.

I will do anything to procrastinate from household chores...


Play along if you'd like! Here are the official rules:

* Link to the original meme at freelancecynic.com so people know what it's all about!
* Be as honest as possible, This is about letting people get to know the real you!
* Try not to insult anyone - unless they really deserve it or are very, very ugly!
* Post these rules at the end of every meme!

We can't lose subtitles! I'd have to learn French before I could Enjoy Amelie

Great job on the meme. Thanks for taking part.

Hi there cuddly wuddly baby Judah!

Would you tell your mommy that her ranting rocks?

I'm sorry ;) The bad girl in me couldn't resist!!!!!

I have to say I've neve rheard of a Chinese Drive Thru. Next to Italian food, though, Chinese has to be my second least favorite so I probably wouldn't try it even if we did have one.

I would So fire that housekeeper! You just can't get good help these days!

I love it!! I'm going to respond to the tag (which flatters the heck out of me by the way =) ) as soon as our stuff gets here and I can use my computer instead of the lame library ones that won't let me update my blog for some reason *sigh*
