I'm Lovely?...Why Thank You: Seven Things That Annoy Me

The face I'll generally make if you try to take my picture... good luck.
Afternoon Readers,

     Although she, admittedly, doesn't participate in them much, Melynda over at Crazy Word accepted the Lovely Blogger Award and passed it on to a lucky few. The reason I love this woman so much, is because she's so much like me, and because of that, has simplified the process into something so fantastic, it makes me want to keep nominating her for more awards, and more awards, and more awards...because she loves that.

     Because of this, I get to throw out a lengthy list of rules and just list seven things that annoy me. On a Thursday. Practically like getting to sit and eat Twix bars while someone else lets my kids chase them with a foam bat.

Thursday Presents: Seven Things That Annoy Me

1.) Not being able to reach the remote. Note that I said "reach". If it's lost then I turn over and go to sleep, but if I just can't reach it, I lay there, moaning like a beached whale watching poachers run at it with harpoons that bring eminent death.

2.) Bills....because, in most other countries, my sunny disposition is considered currency. Get with it, America.

3.) Getting a good night's sleep. Because if I ever had one, I'd be so scared of the sunlight waking me up, I'd probably have a heart attack, die, come back as a vampire because this is my ridiculous answer, and go searching for Edward Cullen, just so I could tell him to lighten up and have a Cosmopoliton or Gin and Tonic because I love both and they'll put hair on your chest. Which he maybe needed a little of...but I don't, so I drink them sparingly.

Except for Gin

When I'm not pregnant

4.) When a light bulb needs to be changed

5.) Dave Matthews Band

6.) Having to cross my arms so no one will notice that I'm not wearing a bra when I take the trash out.

7.) When my highlights grow out, I have no money to get them re-touched, and everyone asks me if I'm wearing a clown wig.

And now, three lucky peeps that may take this Lovely Blogger Award, run with it, and go on and on about things that annoy them....




Ladies, if you partake, please give me a shout out. Each one of you has been handpicked because of your ability to make me laugh...and we all know how much I hate that.

Until Next Time, Readers!

    Im kind of scared to do this because I might be a leeedle too honest.

    1. Absolutely. Copy what you need and throw in that fantastic brand of honesty the blog world follows and loves you for!

  2. I've warned you about duck face.

    Oh shit...I keep forgetting to cover myself when I'm taking the trash out or getting the mail. I'll bet they've all seen my boobs now. That would explain the winks and honks.

    1. Except, here it's more of an "Angry duck" than a "Isn't this attractive duck".

  3. Haha I just took the trash out and contemplated putting a bra on before I did it. Then I figured it's the only freedom my boobies get each week so I may as well let them enjoy the moment.

    1. Good for you! The key is to cover and run. Cover and run.

  4. "everyone asks me if I'm wearing a clown wig." Everyone is so funny! Why can't I ever bring myself to ask a woman that?

    1. I feel like most people that are sane like you don't ask because who they're asking might turn out to be an actual clown...I think.

  5. At least you can cross your arms and your unbridled boobs are there to cover! I'm amazed a woman wasn't the real person to discover gravity...

    1. Whoa, whoa, whoa...someone already knows about gravity? So much for my big break on the Today show. Thanks, Maggie.

  6. I raise a G&T in your honor, Paige Kellerman. Except it's really a Pinot Grigio because I am no Applebee's, with fancy booze all around.

    Thanks!

    1. No need for fancy booze here, Nicole. I'll take the pinot without complaint...now, hand it over.

  7. First what the hell is duck face? I keep seeing everywhere and I don't know what it means. I'm worried I'm doing it without even knowing I'm doing it. Secondly, yeah you played! Your answers were way more entertaining than my soap box! Yipee!
    Third, You love me? Finally someone loves me! I can die happy.

    1. I've never seen it in a picture of you, so I think you're safe. I do love you, and promise to tell you if you ever make the duck face...:)

  8. HA! Great answers. I especially relate to the one about the bra. You'd think it'd be safe to sneak outside at the butt crack of dawn wearing a tee and shorty shorts, wouldn't ya? Especially in a quiet little neighborhood like mine. But noooooo, the whole neighborhood picks that time to drive past. And wave.

    1. I, too, have to strategically avoid the neighbors, but I can feel their eyes behind their neatly pressed drapes. And they're all saying, "Now that is horrific."

  9. Being naturally gorgeous, lovely & beautiful (Yes, ALL THREE!) AND the Queen of Whatever, I find it difficult to relate to your plebian problems. If someone were ever to annoy ME (You notice that is spelled with all capital letters) I would have my lady-in-waiting smite them. How do you common people ever survive?

    1. Darn it, Fishducky. I'm going to give you an honorary reward and make you do a post on it over at Elisa's.

  10. I also got this award from her... but I am too annoyed right now to list my annoyances. Maybe next week.

    1. I like it, Juli. Nice and fired up. Now go channel that into an awesomely annoyed post for next week...;)

  11. You humble and honor me with your nomination, madame. I have nothing fancy to wear to the award ceremony, so I hope you won't mind my usual bralessness.

    1. Of course. Of course. You know that's standard dress code for all our events.

    1. Thanks, Meredith! If I could count to thirty on on one hand, that would be about right.
