When Layne was over to watch the Golden Globes the other day she went on a brief but fiery rant about her hatred of people who use big umbrellas – as were ever-present at the Globes due to the rain – on the UBC campus and their lack of courtesy when other people are approaching.
I totally understand this.
One of my biggest pet peeves is when you’re walking along the sidewalk towards a two or more people and neither of them move over at all. Like I don’t need the whole sidewalk but I’m not walking in the fucking gutter just so you aren’t forced to briefly pause your obviously gripping tete a tete. BITCHES PLEASE! This is so rude. And arrogant. Wankers.
One of my biggest pet peeves is people who say “but yet.” This is not grammatically correct in any sense of the English language. To be fair I’m a bit of a judgy bitch when it comes to grammar – at least with native speakers: I am far more lenient, and I like to think almost Guru-like, with those for whom English is a second language – but these two words said in concert is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I think it’s people combining “and yet” with “but” and thinking it makes their argument stronger to structure it in this manner. IT DOES NOT. I have one friend who is a very nice person, and whose name rhymes with “pain,” who uses this all the time and while it does annoy me I’ve never told him.
Hmmm, I think that’s just about enough negativity for one day.
One completely random thing that I love is when you get humorous text messages from friends for no apparent reason other than they think you’ll enjoy it.
I received the following today from a friend:
I just fully wiped out (full hands out sprawl) in front of nesters so I couldn’t go in and buy a banana because the people saw me fall!
COMEDY GOLD! Oh how I laughed (Stephanie Beacham styles and everything). I actually have a few of my favourite text messages saved for if I’m ever having a bad day.
I’m sitting in my chiropractor’s office and there’s a big sign that says ‘life’s all about balance’ but the sign is hanging totally crooked.
I love free booze! Yea! Weeee!
Snow patrol was great but I may have thrown up a little on the way home! Stella was not there but her shady distant cousin “draft” was…
