Moaning Meme

Jessica tagged me to let loose and rant ...

The Freelance Cynic started the Moaning Meme so that our readers could get to know the real us... the moaners and groaners behind our smiling, happy blogs.
He says

"...our blogs, the social tools of the 21st century,
are populated by memes listing our 'favourites,'
or our 'blessings,' or our 'funniest' moments.
In our efforts to be readable we have denied others
the one thing that makes us interesting -
our whining, moaning, complaining selves."

After reading this tell me, did you learn something new about me? Was I more interesting for having complained? =)

List 5 people who will be annoyed that I tagged them.

Well I dont want to force folks to do anything, but just for fun I tag...I'm only gonna list three...

List 4 things that should go into room 101 and be removed from the face of the earth.

1. not the meat (or meat like substance) the junk emails that fill up your inbox. I do not want Viagra, cheap auto insurance (although this one cracks me up), to meet girls, to get a degree in 3 months. I also don't want to help you get your billions of dollars out of a US Bank account, I'm really not that nice.

2. Ticks, skeeters, chiggers, and other itchy things. Do they really play such a vital role in our environment that we need them? I know God has infinite wisdom but really..Noah should have killed them and been done with it!!

3. Umpteen gazillion sports channels on tv. Really...what is the point in sitting and watching someone else play a game? I just don't get it. And we wonder why people are overweight...we don't play games, we are just content to watch someone else play them .

4. Actors and actresses being super celebrities. I don't say do away with the actors and actresses but why to we idolize them? Really...I don't care what and how much they drink. I don't care what they wear. I don't care what they had for lunch or who they are dating. If they break the law punish them like everyone else. *cough* Paris Hilton *cough* If they die, bury them like everyone else, I don't mind being TOLD about it but don't harp on it endlessly for months *cough* Anna Nicole *cough* I don't mind watching people in movies, some I enjoy more than others, but I really don't see the point in idolizing them like modern society does.

5. Reality tv...oh wait thats more than 4.....

List 3 things that people do that make me want to shake them violently.

I think all mine are work related...

1. Calling their insurance agent and fussing about how high the price is and how it never goes down, blah blah blah when it went down every period up until this one but that somehow goes unnoticed. Why don't people call me and say, "Why did my insurance go down? I didn't do anything good like not have accidents or anything, so why did it drop? When's it gonna go back up?"

2. People who claim there mail doesn't come like it should and therefore they NEVER get a bill but they get every single refund check and all their other checks, just that their mail box doesn't take bills or something.

3. People who get a bill that says their policy will cancel on so-and-so date at 12:01am and they rush in saying "Whew...just barely got her by NOON!!" Um sorry, it cancelled at MIDNIGHT! Ugh!

List 2 things I find myself moaning about:

1. Losing weight...if I'd just get up off my bum....

2. Yeah, I agree with Jessica, the house cleaner...again...if I'd just get up off my bum....

What 1 thing do the above answers tell me about myself.
That stupid people annoy me. And that I am lazy...

Play along if you'd like! Here are the official rules:

* Link to the original meme at so people know what it's all about!
* Be as honest as possible, This is about letting people get to know the real you!
* Try not to insult anyone - unless they really deserve it or are very, very ugly!
* Post these rules at the end of every meme!

I totally agree on the Actors/Actress superstar thing.

Their actors, IT's not like we can't live without them!

Some excellent moaning! I feel like I know you better already, but then as we just met that's not saying much!
