Re: Morning Laides

  • Good Morning! I have strep throat and the antibiotics are killing my stomach. I guess I am staying home today :(

     

    QOTD: I hate it when people are like stirring something in their drink, and they bang their spoon against the mug. I know this sounds crazy but when  my DH makes hot chocolate, he stirs for like 5 minutes and the sound of his spoon hitting the mug drives me crazy.

  • Morning! Happy last day of 2010! Where did this year go?

    Not much going on today...a lot of pre-prep work for the new years day dinner we're having tomorrow, and then checking into the W hotel around 3ish. Then it should be a relaxing evening just hanging out in the room I think, and possibly ordering room service. We'll decide later! 

    QOTD: I don't know that I have many. I hate when I am walking and either people in front of me are super slow and are taking up the whole space, or when someone behind me tries to walk past me. I always feel pressure like I should slow down and just let them pass, as if I were driving :-P

    I dont mind one slow person but here it seems people walk in pairs or in big groups and they dont let you pass them. I hate that too!

  • Morning!

    H should be home soon and we are having a nice quiet NYE.

    QOTD: H like to leave full wet sponges/rags what have you in the sink.  Just ring the dang thing out and set it on the edge!

  • In the states and currently spending an evening at a friend's house which has turned into a very late night so not quite morning for me yet.  However, I'm looking forward to seeing more family for New Year's Eve tomorrow and enjoying spending time with my friends.

     

    Pet Peeve: When I think about this I realize I may have too many.  My biggest one however is really poor table manners such as chewing loudly with your mouth open or ripping up bread with no plate underneath.  These just make me not want to eat with a person ever again and then I feel bad for feeling that way.

  • Good morning! We're about to head for all you can eat dim sum!

    QOTD: Stupid people. I have to deal with this pet peeve on a daily basis. Too many of them exist.

  • Morning. I'm working today :( but will be leaving early...planned on getting a blood test but they close at 12 so thats a nope for me! This evening we're going to a friends house and I don't want to go! I want to stay home and go to sleep at a reasonable tim!

    QOTD: My biggest at the moment are the people who gather around the exit to buildings and smoke so everyone who goes in or out has to walk through their nasty smoke!

  • Good morning. I am so tired I want to pass out. I spelt for maybe 3.5 hours last night. I guess I'm jetlagged so my timing is off. I'll need one large nap when I get home if I plan to make it to midnight.

    QOTD: I could go on for hours, but I'll just name 3. Slow/stupid people who walk/stand/form a human chain in front of me. I also hate when kitchen cupboards aren't closed all the way, and when glasses are touching plates on the dinner table.

    Are you able to get melatonin where you are? It really helps us with our jet lag, and lets us sleep!

    I'm not sure what melatonin is...obviously not skin pigment, which I seem to have thought it was lol. I'll look it up. At about 3am I took some anti-nausents to make me sleepy, but I don't even know if they worked.

  • Morning. I'd be better if I got more than 3 hours of sleep before DH decided to wash dishes this morning. This place echos so bad, you can hear everything. Stupid DH and stupid dishes.

    QOTD: Whistling. It grates on every nerve in my body, and makes me violent when exposed to it too long.

  • Good morning!

    Looks like we will be having a NYE party at our place (which is easiest for us with the kid).  We'll also be able to see the fireworks from here, I'm looking forward to it! 

    QOTD: I have to agree with AMrs. sponge pet peeve. That really bothers me too. As does leaving the toilet seat up. H doesn't do that, but when we have guests, they often do! Urgh!!! 


  • Good morning!

    QOTD: I hate it at baggage claim at airports when everyone stands next to the conveyor belt even though they haven't spotted their luggage and you have to push past them to get your own. If they would just step back, everyone can see the luggage and then they can just take a step up to retrieve.

  • Morning, we are having dinner with friends which will be nice.  Plus gym and some errands, although I'm still in bed:-) being lazy after sleeping in.

    QOTD:  I have a lot, but big ones are crooked picture frames, people who walk slow in chains (hello London tourists, I'm talking to you) and things not being put in their place when their place is oblivious.

  • Morning.  The weather here is sooo weird.  Last night, it was raining.  RAINING.  Today, it's -3 and really foggy.  WHAT IS GOING ON SWEDEN!?

     

    QOTD: Oh lord.  Do you really want the whole list?  It might take as long as that thread on E. lol... But, I really hate that pedestrians, when hearing a car behind them, do NOT get to the side of the road!!  Yes, I know the sidewalks are impassable, and it's fine that you're walking in the road.  But ***, would you stop walking in the MIDDLE of the road?!

  • I have a fcking cold again.

    QOTD: willful ignorance 

  • Good morning.  Just got a haircut (which my DH hates as he says it makes me look like a boy) and going to make a late lunch as we're going out to a friends later tonight, whre we're having drinks and canapes.

    QOTD: Not using an indicator to let people know you are turning...a little flick of the finger is so not tough to do!

  • Good evening Ladies! only 3 hours until the new year now.  There aren't many celebrations around here for NYE (they will be celebrating the new year in Feb), but we are having DH's Taiwanese coworkers over tomorrow to grill out.  We went to Costco today and on the way found this incredible mall at which we spent hours (didn't buy anything--just browsed).  Then our entire neighborhood's electricity went out for over an hour.  It got dark and we couldn't find where we put our candles! lol   

    QOTD: same as previous posts.

  • We are having a block party later this evening.  Normally it would have been fun (all be it cold), but DH was just called back into work because one of his guys got a DUI.  So now EVERYONE's holiday will be ruined by one idiot's need to drink.

    And here is the thing, they JUST did this 2 weeks ago....so no, having a full dress down does not seem to be working as a deterent.

    QOTD:  A tie - my husband's need to leave things whereever he puts them down and then getting pissed that either a) the baby got it - see I was not watching her intently enough or b) moving said item out of her way (btw, i put everything in the same spot, so he always knows where they are) and therefor not having them where he remembered.  

    OR having to deal with pissy mothers when they do not effing parent their kids.  I am not talking about screaming kids in restaurants (my kid has meltdowns...it happens) or even the general tug-o-war over toys (kids need to learn how to work those things out)...I am talking about the very agressive pushing, hitting and bitting without any response from a parent.

    That is NOT how kids are....and even it WERE, they don't miraculously learn how to behave properly if someone (THEIR EFFING PARENT) teaches them.

    So DO NOT GET IN MY FACE WHEN I TAKE YOUR BRAT'S HANDS OFF MY DAUGHTER'S HAIR!
