come on!

as opposed to this and what i'm a sucker for, i say..

COME ON to:

dry contacts, running out of contact solution at a bad time. getting something in your eye.
the light just turning yellow, and the person in front of you actually slowing down for it.
running late for work, and realizing your gas light is on. shit.
cd wrappers, so annoying. and dvd wrappers too.
and things in that plastic kind of packaging, the kind you really can't get into, and end up with severe cuts on your hands when you finally do.
bringing your digital camera with you to a special event, and it dying on contact with no battery left.
craving a glass of milk and finding less than a sip left. an empty ice cube tray on a hot day.
forgetting to put my ipod in my gym bag. or worse, my headphones. forgetting the combination to my lock.
how easily i bruise; i look abused half the time.
my hair breezing into my lipgloss. and chapped lips. running out of my favorite shampoo.
getting snuggled into bed, and realizing i forgot to take my pill. being in bed, and obsessing about whether i bolted the door or not.
only having thongs to choose from, or worse, period undies (yes, i went there; it's not gross, it's the facts), when you just want a fucking comfy pair of regular ones.
thinking you paid a bill only to get a double whammy the following month. budget billing for the gas bill almost doubling.
not having a disposal anymore. how much trash accumulates because of it.
checking my home email from work, and then getting home and still receiving them all as "new"
forgetting to wear one of my rings. forgetting mascara. i feel naked without either.
when the bottom of pants get wet half way up your calf in the rain or snow. stepping in something wet, with socks on.
music that's too loud, even if i like it, and it's my favorite band.
chipping nail polish, it's gross and i hate it on myself, and more on others.
dry skin in the winter. oily sunscreen.
overflowing trash.
someone beeping at you when you're at a red light that clearly states, "no turn on red."
being at a store, with a sale, and realizing i left my gift card at home. losing my dunkin donuts gift card.
unreturned phone calls. or texts, when a phone call is more appropriate.
pink, the singer.
reruns when you just want a new episode. the summer when all shows are on hiatus.
blogs not refreshing to the current post.
hearing the word cunt.
late fees.
too much heat, in a car. or not enough.
too ripe bananas. waiting for a one to get just ripe enough.
getting a piece of the shell in the pan from an egg.
no more sex and the city. or felicity. or party of five. and 90210, yeah.
needing a new battery, for whatever, and being all out.

I'm meg too! When does that tour start? I checked out news from 06, it looks great! I love finding people with similar music taste! Any band recommendations?

I was wowing because I liked your last post. I don't say wow unless I do like something!! But I don't like "Wow" chips--they use to give me diarrhea.

Another list that I found fascinating. If I had to make a list of things that got on my nerves it would be sooo long. However, I'm trying to stay positive now-a-days. I say trying, because right now I'm in a pissy mood. But I'm sure the mood will pass.

Hope you always have batteries, or never run out of your favorite shampoo. And yeah, I hate crawling into bed, getting comfortable and then forgetting something.

I like "Come on" but have taken to shouting "Come the fuck on Bridget!" in the manner of Tom in BJD. This annoys my co-workers and my boss, but I find it internally hilarious.

Oh and the C word - how right you are. That just makes me so angry I could dash the speaker's teeth out with a heavy glass ashtray whenever I hear it.

brilliant!

Loved this blog!

e.b. said...

So smart and brave. I am not sure I would know where to start with a list like that.

Ruby said...

Agreed! To all of it! Actually the C word is an insult derived from the misuse of the lore of Great Goddess Cunti, known in ancient Indic Hinduism and Cunina who was a Roman Goddess who protected children in the cradle.

m- Nice to meet you! Tons of recommendations. Check your email:)

angel, jr.- Ha, thank you. Your comments make me laugh. Hope your optimism is carrying into this Wednesday.

peej- Come the fuck on Birdget- I love it! Ha!

aaron- Thank you friend!

eb- Yeah, I barely knew where to start. And this list could go on forever... and ever...

Ruby- I never knew the origin of that about that nasty, nasty word. Thanks for the scoop. Ugh, I hate it.

Trixie said...

Love it!

I hate dry eyes due to contact too. ditto on both CD and DVD wrappers. definitly come on now that SATC is gone. Great post. :)

Yup, that pretty much sums it all up!
