I really am normally pretty easy going. However, Monday started with a coffeemaker issue. Our $100 Bunn coffeemaker that is only about 6 months old went kaput. Do not get in the way of me and my coffee. Anyway, that put me in a pretty snarky mood, so I do have to say there are some things that just have to stop. Right now. Especially if my coffeemaker is broken.
This is what John and I call an “Old Man Yelling at Cloud” day.
1. The Ermahgerd memes. Please stop. They don’t make any sense or maybe I am get too old to want to bother figuring out what the heck they are saying.
See – picture funny. Words? Not so much.
2. The “Blah, blah, blah” – said no one, ever e-cards. Ugh! The gramarian in me really cringes at these. I am not even going to post one because they irritate me so much.
3. David Hasselhoff teaming up with Cumberland’s to sell cold drinks and I have to bike past these signs.
NO. Get out of my town. Or at least stop wearing the tank top. Please. Irony is that someone is stealing all of these signs, too. What for? I really don’t want to know.
4. Misuse of the word “epic”. Salads are not epic, which also means neither are sandwiches. The latest tired movie in a franchise that should have stopped at least a movie ago is most certainly not epic.
5. And speaking of movies – do we really need another Superman movie? Did they not just try to reboot that recently, failing miserably?
6. Enough with making a portmanteau out of everything. Yeah, some are useful and fun, like ‘spork’ or “Turducken”, but it’s getting old. No more snowpocolypse, Brangelina, bromance, and amazeballs (wtf is that, anyway??). Portmanteaus are supposed to make sense and not just be sticking 2 random words together.
7. YOLO. For some reason, this always makes me think of Rolos, and I don’t even like that candy. I don’t want to think about it.
8. Twee recipes posts have to stop. When I want a recipe, I don’t want to see a picture of the finished item, then hear about some cute barely related story growing up, another picture of the finished item (at a different angle, of course), how said story relates to the recipe, another picture, possibly more story – or at least rambling, and then the recipe. It drives me nuts! Just give me the recipe!
Okay, I feel a lot better now. And Bunn is sending us a replacement coffeemaker.
