I need to be asleep. I have to be up for work in less than 6 hours. My frustration in this has motivated me to make a post about things that irritate me...often for no good reason. All of these things have popped up for one reason or another over the past couple of weeks so I need to let off some of the pressure.
People who say their cat is "making biscuits". The word is "kneading" you nimrods. Unless the cat is busting out the flour and rolling pin it is not making biscuits. If it is breaking out the flour then it is enough of a marvel to make you a millionaire so you can go back to school and learn the definition of simple words.
People who turn left from the right hand lane. Do I really need to go into that one?
People who refer to the 28 day/weeks/ months Later movies as "zombie movies". They aren't fucking zombies! They are victims of germ warfare/ plague. They aren't the risen dead. They follow none of the "zombie rules". I think the next person who calls them "Zombie Movies" in my presence will get kicked in the shins.
People who give false hope in relationships. That's just cold. I have been personally burned by this in the past and I think it is just cold and dirty. Just be honest about who you are and why you are there. If they aren't listening then know you have to do things to make yourself clear...sometimes in action. It isn't always easy but it is right. (Hugs to B.)
People who take in pets they can't take are of. Seriously...that's fucked.
People who take your stuff out of the dryer when there are plenty of open ones. C'mon...that's just low.
Guys who want to show me their penis. I've seen a penis. I have never really been impressed. If I want to see your penis I'll let you know. So please, in emails, comments, or in person if you will kindly refrain from whipping it out I would appreciate it. It will only end in tears...for you...if you can't suppress that urge.
People who manipulate their way INTO a relationship. Or just don't listen. Seriously, if they tell you they don't want anything serious it is a wrong wrong thing to passively bully them into it. And if they haven't told you they love you after several months...PAY ATTENTION! Again, something I have been beaten up by. It isn't pretty or fun. Don't be that asshole.
People who call anything that happens to have criss-cross lacing a corset. These puny lace things you so often see are no more a corset than my sneakers. Busque, merry-widow, teddy, camisole, bustier, teddiette...there are tons of options. Know what it is.
People without passion. Are they just dead inside? They suck the life out of others.
Insomnia. It is a pain in the ass.
Professionals who don't return calls. It's your bleedin' job. It isn't for fun. It isn't social. It is business. Do your damn job.
The health care system in the United States. I am under-employed and uninsured and I need medical care. Too bad for me. *growls*
My local post office. Seriously, if they don't track down the necklace that lorigami
made and karis_straif
was wonderful enough to buy for me for my birthday...there will be hell to pay. Deep deep hell to pay. (And then I will get a PO box somewhere else or ask a friend if I can use their mailing address for anything other than my bills.)
I suppose that is enough for now. Next bout of insomnia I'll post a list of things that make me giddy.
This post does not mean I am unhappy. In fact, things are still going pretty good in my life. Training stuff is good. Friends are good. Pets are good. Money will pan out eventually. Still on a high after the ATL trip. AND (hey karis_straif
I need your mailing addy) MY TRANSFORMUS INVITES CAME IN THE MAIL!!! There is still a ton I need to do to get my life back on track but the inertia is there.
More importantly, I like me. And it has been a while since I really felt that way. I just need to keep kicking my own ass to keep it that way.
Sleep Well LJ land...hopefully I'll do the same soon.
