My Top Ten List of Annoying Things for This Week


It seems to me that, though life in general is made up of them, there are weeks when little annoyances build up rather substantially. Or perhaps I’m just less tolerant of them. During weeks like these, it’s important to keep a sense of humour lest I end up totally bonkers due to the stress of it all. Failing the ability to laugh at my woes in the privacy of my own closet (which is where the men in the white coats SHOULD NOT LOOK FOR ME!! IGNORE THE GIGGLES COMING FROM THE CLOSET!!!) this blog enables me to share my madness with all of you. Aren’t you lucky? Here we go.

My Top Ten List of Annoying Things for This Week

  1. Having a fantastic idea for a blog post that’s so freaking good that I didn’t need to write it down.
  2. Famous last words.
  3. Getting all ready to have a shower and then realizing I need to wash my clothes first.
  4. Snow days. All one of them.
  5. Firefox crashing every evening at about 7. What’s up with that?
  6. Having a to-do list that’s longer than there are hours in a day.
  7. Meat in the fridge that won’t wait just one more day before it expires. C’mon, meat! Have a bit of decency!
  8. Not being able to get more fridge magnet letters from Toys ‘r’ Us.
  9. on the bright side, the accent is correct

  10. Chocolate. More specifically, orange Kit Kat. Why does it have to be so mouth-wateringly delicious?!
  11. Not being able to come up with ten annoying things, damnit!

So, how has your week been so far?

  1. Spent the week with the mother in law. How much time have you got ??? ā˜ŗ


  2. Not a single mention of a presidential candidate…I’m ready for the UK to rule the colonies again.


  3. “I’m just gonna say taxes, health insurance, phone calls on hold from hell. Which led to too much dark chocolate — yes, for me there is such a thing for me — another annoyance!” she complained, stamping her feet on the floor and flinging a pill bottle at the wall.


  4. Pingback: My Article Read (2-25-2016) – My Daily Musing

  5. Lakeshore Learning Store has your magnets!


  6. Famous Last Words?
    What’s annoying about that? It’s one of my best stories.


  7. Love the list. And especially #10.
    Also I’ve noticed that the veggies seem to be taking after the meat. No decency there either. Sigh.

  8. I concur with having to-do lists longer than hours in the day and Firefox crashing… constantly! Sorry you are having such an annoying week, Linda.. mine has just been, well… robbed by too much sleep, not enough sleep, not enough time, too much to do, too much to read, not enough chocolate, and too many ideas running around in my head when there is never a notebook conveniently close by. So I guess I mirror a lot of your annoyances, more than I thought.. *laughs* I am blaming it on leap day coming up.


  9. My week has been a little odd but fine.I waded through 9,200 messages that piled up when I was offline. I wrote two guest posts – about 3,600 words between them. I still have promises of two more guest posts that i have to fill. Getting caught up on news and such. This month is hard on bills so I have to be cheap in my purchases. too much month at the end of the money.


    • Ah well, your entertainment budget is bought and paid for. šŸ˜‰ hehe
      I think if I was you and had that many emails piled up I’d probably throw my laptop out the window in frustration. Good thing you live on the first floor! šŸ˜€

      • Bwahaha! I don’t know if you noticed but my building has a hillin the back so the rear entrance is about 2 floor level. I accidentally dropped a window A/c out the window last year while trying to install it, and I heard it scream for quite some time before it hit the ground and blew into a thousand pieces – kind of like something Mythbusters would blow up. ha!


        • Hehe. That must have been fun. Two years ago my best friend, John, dropped mine out of the window taking it out. So this year whenever I asked him to take it out (which was a few times – it didn’t come out ’til December) I asked him when he was going to throw my A/C out the window. Good thing he’s got a sense of humour. šŸ˜› šŸ™‚


  10. I love life. Every day is a blessing. My children are perfect and always have been. My good looks defy description so I wont. I won the lottery twice this week. I plan to live forever. My boyish good looks mean I don’t look a day over thirty.

    Having said all that I expect to be included in next weeks ten annoying things….


  11. It must be something in the air. Having one of those weeks myself.


  12. There’s orange kit-kats??? I have to find some! Hope next week is better in the annoyance department. šŸ˜‰


  13. Number 1, over and over, despite owning every note-taking app ever created. By the way, if you shared our kitchen at work, #10 would be empty paper towel rolls.


  14. let’s see: reading another post that’s funnier than my draft. That’s well up there…


  15. I can hardly wait for you to read my next post.

    Oh, wait, what was it about again? I thought I’d remember what I wanted to write. Bah.

    BTW, I recently bought alphabet magnets from Walmart, but I’ve also seen them on (along with lots of other props that I intend to use in my increasingly popular photos. [snicker])

  16. That damn meat. No sense of decency. Loved the list.

  17. I suspect you’re aware that I’ve had a crap week. I did manage to have some sexy time, a cheeseburger, and one delicious nap. Tonight, Palace of Rules. Tomorrow, bitchin on my blog.


  18. If it were good, it wouldn’t be mine.
    I live by the rubber band theory – every time something good happens the rubber band of life is stretched just a little more, until one day – SNAP! You get it full force. The more good things happen, then more you’re going to pay for it when it snaps.
