I love the idea of it. I really do. And I'm down with painting furniture and walls, etc. But when it comes to bedazzling shoes or glue-gunning beads on a blouse - am I that into something that takes twice as long to make and turns out half as good as the purchased product? Nah...
Couch / Dooney & Bourke Bags
Just not my style. I feel like they didn't get the memo that it's no longer early 2000s and we don't generally love items anymore that splash the brand's name in repeat pattern across the entire product (Maybe that's because I'm still bitter at all the free advertising I did for Gap as a walking billboard in 1999. My generation knew not what we did.).
Go ahead and take away some cool points from me. I deserve it. And yes, I do like some concerts. Some. But most of the time, I think they're boring. The charade is so tiresome. Waiting. Opening acts IDGAF about. Waiting more. Headliner- yes, finally! They play a bit then leave. Back to waiting for the encore, fighting crowds after, etc. Blah. I can think of a lot better ways to spend my nights.
Pizza for Dinner
This is not because I don't like pizza. But as my full dinner, it's just over so quickly! Like 5 bites and dinner is done! Where's the fun in that?
Believing that people can't eat gluten all of a sudden
If you own that you're doing a gluten-free diet for whatever reason, sure. More power to you. We all have a right to eat how we'd like. And if you're celiac, then of course- don't have gluten! But if you've eaten it your whole life and then two years ago suddenly became "100% OMGINTOLERANT", I don't believe you. The only reason this bothers me is because people have gotten really rude about it. I can't tell you how many houses I've been to where the host kindly serves an amazing spread they clearly took forever on and were happy to share with guests. Then like clockwork, someone who ate pizza up until 4 months ago suddenly can't touch any of it and the host scrambles to come up with a stressful plan B all in the name of someone masquerading a food choice as a medical issue. Hurrumph. Manners over fake allergies.
Living your entire life around football season
I like to cheer on all "my" teams and curl up on the couch with some queso and chips to root for a win! But if something else amazing is going on at the time of the game now and again, I'm probably okay to skip the TV for real life. On the other hand, my husband missing a U of O game is not even an option. Can't a girl just go to an antiques fair with her husband in September anymoreeee?
People who use being blunt as an excuse to be just plain rude
If you tell me with sincerity that you think I'm in a bad relationship or that I'm being too harsh on a fellow friend, congrats- you are a blunt person and that is a cherished, noble quality. If you tell people that "they look weird" or that you're bored at their shindig or that you hate their permanent tattoo, you're rude. It's easy to be rude. There is a huge difference between the two.
I just really can't imagine why anyone likes to put cheesy, huge stickers on their walls. No frames, no mats, just cheap looking text ... SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN (exception for kids because their rooms are always full of whimsy). Like, I can't explain how much I hate this.
Narrating videos that don't need narration
Okay, as I sat here on the couch and asked Jay for an idea of something that he knows bugs me, he immediately brought this one up. And he's SO right about that. Bear with me while I explain: Funny video or clip has been making its rounds on the interwebs. You search the video to watch it and see one that looks like it populate. You open said video and instead of the video you sought playing, you are face to face with some "host" explaining what the video is with accompanying stills without ever playing the video. Like, I don't need you to explain the video to me (also: Who are you?) ... just PLAY the video itself and I can figure it out. Does anyone know what I'm talking about!?!? Here's hoping...
Shirts that state things such as "DIVA" or "A LITTLE BIT SPOILED"
No explanation needed I hope.
My iPhone's storage
Every day I'm told I have to delete more data to make room. Every day. Every GD day.
What's something you're kinda, sorta, totally not into?
