Current Annoyances

Posted by The Swollen Goi... on Friday, March 5, 2010

I will be updating this infrequently. I will sometimes repeat myself. Feel free to add your own current annoyances.

I'm currently annoyed that I'm not drinking beer, watching the Blackhawks hopefully win and eating bbq with the best cook I know and Mr. RedKarma IS.

The Voltron caption contest is still a current annoyance, as L.M. is late in posting the winners for this week. I'm growing impatient, as I want to know whether to comfort Goiter for another inexplicable loss or whether to congratulate an unexpected, but long-awaited victory. She was supposed to post the results and new caption yesterday, but so far has not posted anything, not even a note saying that the contest will be extended until next Sunday (which is what she did the last time).

But I also have a new...

Current Annoyance

It is sweltering, desert-like hot outside (95 or so). I thus wanted (understandably, I think) to get where I was heading as quickly as possible. My current annoyance is women who wear ridiculously impractical shoes. I can understand wearing heeled-shoes or stilettos (or other items that require balancing acts which rival the Cirque du Soleil) in certain contexts - going out to a fancy place or dancing, etc. - but for normal, day-to-day activities (such as walking a distance greater than 150 feet or going over brick surfaces - Wash. U. has many brick sidewalks) these shoes are completely inappropriate. I can only walk so slow, beyond which it literally becomes painful, and so cannot stand it when I get behind women who are slowly, oh so slowly hobbling about in these balance-requiring shoes (or worse, a group of these women walking side-by-side so that there is no way to go around them).

(There was an example of this in The Human Centipede, BTW. At the beginning of the movie, the two girls are going through the thick woods in the rain trying to find help... in stiletto heels. I leaned over to Goiter and mentioned, as soon as they stepped out of their car, that their very choice of footwear had doomed them to the horrible things we knew were going to happen to them...)

You ought not to have done that.  I have visions of a massaging showerhead used in an impure manner.

 I'm currently annoyed that you can't quote people in this rich text editor. You have to switch back to plain text editor for that.

 

At least I can't. Somebody quote me and prove me wrong.

I don't know if this proves anything, but I'm typing this in the "rich text editor."  I switched to the plain text editor, hit the quote button for your post, then switched back to the other text editor.  I don't know if that's what you're looking for, though; I mostly stick with the plain text editor.

That sounds like a pain, ergo still an annoyance. At least it's a solution, albeit an annoying one.

See, you are supposed to learn how to walk in heels before you hit high school. Then by the time you hit college you should be good enough to do brick after a few tries. That's how we do it in the city, so I can only conclude that these women were deprived of heels, or had dang few occasions to use 'em.

Can I get a "HELL YEAH!"?

 Current Annoyance: Motherfucking mechanics who don't do their job right and then yell at you when you try to call them out on it. I came in for a brake job. You made the slight problem WORSE. I spent $400 god damn dollars more to get it fixed. Don't you DARE call me out for trying to call YOU out when YOU FUCKED UP IN THE FIRST FUCKING PLACE YOU FUCKING MARMADUKE LOVING FUCK. 

Annoyance #2: Marmaduke. How the hell do we live on a planet where

A) This shitty movie gets made. 

B) People go to see it. 

C) THEY MADE MARMADUKE TALK, EVEN THOUGH HE HASN'T DONE IT ONCE IN THE ENTIRE DECADES LONG HISTORY OF THE FUCKING COMIC!!!!!

Honestly!! Do we blame the studios for making shit, or the brain dead people who pay entirely too much money to go and see it? 

And of course I have to go work at the casino tonight. Nothing cures a foul mood like being yelled at by elderly gambling addicts who are willingly throwing money into machines that will NOT FUCKING PAY YOU BACK IF YOU LIVE ANOTHER 140 YEARS YOU OLD BITCH!!! When they could just as well give it to me to fix my brakes. 

Christ.

I like the fact that the phrase "Maraduke loving fuck" has entered my life.

Or rather, my current annoyance is that I never heard the insult "Maraduke loving fuck" until now.

 Happy Thought #1: The fact that I added a phrase to Omi's life. 

Annoyance #3: The fact that he missed the second 'm' in Marmaduke. 

Annoyance #4: The fact that I just got annoyed about the misspelling of something that annoys the shit out of me in the first place. 

I'd like annoyance #3 stricken from the record. Somebody strike it, or risk becoming annoyance #5.

Wait, do you like the Marmaduke cartoon? Because it seems as if you must appreciate it enough to complain about the film's deviations from the Marmaduke canon...

 

Yikes.

Speaking of Marmaduke, I need to update my "Ask Goiter about shitty movies" thread.

My current annoyance is the fact that I misspelled Marmaduke twice in one post.  It's closely folllowed by the fact that they actually thought it was a good idea to make a Marmaduke movie in the first fucking place.

I am so glad I don't have a kid and would have to be dragged to this abomination of a movie in the first place.
