Because now that the election is over, we can get to the things that Really Matter:
Pet Peeve #1: My Netflix account keeps asking me to rate the movies I’ve seen. They do this for my own good, of course, so they will be able to suggest movies I’ll love. Harrumph. I’ll pick my own DVDs, thank you very much. I hate the implication that I’m a market niche, easily slotted!
Pet Peeve #2: The Eddie Bauer catalog had a really cute “bathrobe alternative” that caught my eye (bathrobes are just too big and all-enveloping for me). This was a cozy little sweater to match some flannel pants. Well, I already have flannel pants (from Kohls clearance racks, and yes, you’re welcome for that great shopping tip). We’re talking nightwear here. Only my husband and daughters will see it, right? So look at the price of said “cozy little sweater”. Why would I spend more on this than I spend on Sunday clothes?
Pet Peeve #3: I absolutely cannot get contacts that allow me to see all distances at once. For instance, I cannot: drive to the grocery store, read package labels, read coupons. These are 3 completely different focal lengths, and I basically have to pick when and where I will squint.
Pet Peeve #4: When I upgraded my WordPress blog I lost ALL my tags.
Pet Peeve #5: People who find stuff to gripe about when their lives are pretty darn near perfect.
