Some Things I Hate

This blog should help serve to help you get to know me. I'm no narcissist, but there are some things that I just can't stand. Here they are in no particular order:

I hate UGGS. No one over the age of 13 should even think about wearing these. It is not snowing, and you are not on the planet Hoth in "The Empire Strikes Back."

I hate SMASHMOUTH. They are the worst band ever. And I hate how they always use their songs in kids movies, along with "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves. Which brings me to my next one...

3."Walkin' on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves
See above. This song has appeared in more kids movies than I care to count. Why? I guess it's the positive message and upbeat rhythm that make parents want to shelter their kids in this cacophony of poo.

I don't know what's worse. Chihuahuas, or the UGG-wearing people that own them. (For the record, I know of maybe one or two people and one or two Chihuahuas that are cool.) But any other Chihuahuas that cross my path? Guess what, now this is happenin'. That's how I roll.

5. BAD DRIVERS (aka Texting While Driving)

A lot of people let this one fly under the radar, or are in denial about their bad habits. It can wait. I bet this girl wears UGGS while taking her CHIHUAHUA to the vet.

6. The Phrase "Beg, Borrow and Deal"
Other versions include "Beg, Steal and Borrow," "Beg, Borrow and Steal," et al. This is an overused cliche, especially in music. It should be banned from the English language.

Only guys who date girls who wear UGGS, own CHIHUAHUAS and text while driving walk into a tattoo parlor and have to order off a menu.


No explaination necessary. If you want to hear it, watch the video or call someone you know with a tribal tattoo.


Everybody loves good lovin' as much as the next person, but there is a time and a place. Holding hands is acceptable. So is a greeting or departing hug or kiss, depending on the level of the relationship. If you just started dating, keep it real. Besides, it makes it all the more worthwhile when you get home.


This is for everything else I hate. Not finishing up the last bit of food--or leaving just a bite or sip of something left, people who don't know how to say no, dude rock, four wheelers, data entry. I could go on.

Check back tomorrow when I might come up with a list of things I like.

In the mean time, check out this great blog.

I also invite you to comment and tell me some things you hate. Who knows, it might inspire a second post.

Inaugural Rant

Greetings one and all. After much contemplation, I have decided to return to the blogging world. This blog will consist of any and everything that I deem necessary. I encourage all of you to discuss/debate any topics on this blog. Let the fun begin.
