Rather than going for some terribly post-modern or impossibly clever conceit for today’s post I’ve gone back to basics with a list. The following things annoys me. It’s that simple.
1. Stacy London (see above).
I have long had a sort of dormant dislike for Stacy London that has bubbled below the surface of my – frankly packed – ocean of other annoyances. That all changed however with a new-ish TV commercial starring said “fashion consultant.” I’ve embedded it below. BE WARNED IT WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO PUNCH YOUR COMPUTER! (Blogfaced takes no responsibility for property damage of physical bodily harm inflicted due to watching this video)
To be fair, this did lead to me and Ryan screaming “SHUT UP! You’re fabulous!” at each other for almost an entire week while he was here but honestly, HOW ANNOYING IS THIS WOMAN! Ugh. I can’t stand this commercial and it creeps up on me when I’m least expecting it. Like I’ll just be settling in to a nice documentary and all of a sudden it’s SHUT UP! YOU’RE FABULOUS blaring out at me. This woman must be stopped.
2. Girls who wear T-Shirts with saying printed on them and then give you an annoyed stare when you look at their chests.
SERIOUSLY. If you have something printed across your boobs then my eyes are going to be drawn there. Get over it. Or don’t wear slogan tees. Your choice.
3. People who don’t take pop music seriously.
Being more specific, people who sort of glaze over and give you that patronising look that you can’t possibly understand “proper” music if you enjoy Kylie or Robyn or Girls Aloud or the Spice Girls. Honestly, if you can’t admit that the Spice Girls wrote some cracking songs – no matter what you thought of them as people – then I have no respect for your opinion musically. NONE.
4. That fetch never caught on.
How great was Mean Girls? I remember totally trying to make fetch happen but, to be fair, Regina was right. It never did.
