things I do not like

1. Tights. They make my butt itch.

2. Overwriters. Argh! Someone may actually have to be killed today.

3. Meeting that are supposed to start at 1, and which you only remember about at 12:30, so it is too late to go get lunch before the meeting, but then they are postponed to 1:15, then 1:30, then 1:45, then when they finally start at five of 2 they go on for TWO AND A HALF HOURS suring the entirety of which your STOMACH is growling furiously.

Is it weekend yet?

ohhhhh my gosh! Yes on the tights. I freakin' hate those things because it makes me look like I have a bug in mah pants. :)

Travis Erwin said...

I've never worn tights but sadly I'm sure I've fit into number 2 on occasion.

Kate said...

I can't remember the last time I wore tights, but I'm so with you on the lunch thing.

Lydia Sharp said...

Unfortunately, I understand number 3.

Once I had the county auditor show up at THE EXACT MOMENT I was about to take my lunch break. I'd been up since 4am, it was about 11 by that time, and then he proceeded to audit the ENTIRE STORE, and who had to stay with him the whole time? Yeah, that's right. ME. All three hours of it.

I seriously almost passed out, and contemplated hitting him with a frying pan display as we audited the housewares department.

How much do I hate tights...

"1. Tights. They make my butt itch."

Since you're sharing, maybe you can verify something else for me , Moonrat. I also hear that when you fart in tights, your shoes come off.

Veritas?

Tights also sag like sh**catchers. You should keep emergency cereal bars in your drawer, something I keep forgetting to do.

Dylan is weird.

I was wondering, since I couldn't tell from your post: how do you feel about tights? Do you like the way they make you feel? What about overwriters, do you love them? Want to marry them? What about meetings that get pushed back? Are they your favorite kinds of meetings?

(I hope tomorrow is a better day!)

My word ver is: patio. Just sayin'.

moonrat said...

dylan, i don't wear tights very often. im going to have to do some more research.

dylan said...

Moonrat

Please don't, not on my account.

As they used to say at the end of B sci-fi movies, "There are some things man was not meant to know."

Thanks Anywho.

weird dylan

Tights and lunch? Overwriters?

Why do I have to have so much misery, and you get away with that being what you hate most about life?

Jesus, what it must be like to go through life on a magic carpet ride. Good times, noodle salad.

Kimberly Franklin said...

No! Unfortunately today is only Tuesday. Ugh.


Wait! It's only Monday??? Uh-oh. Looks like we're in for a long week.

Have a good one!

Lily Cate said...

The only thing worse than tights are those stupid spanx.
And also thigh high pantyhose. (if there was a cute little emoticon for flipping the bird, those two would get it.)

Miriam S. Forster said...

Oof! I sympathize on all three counts. Especially the tights. Though overwriting is up there on the irritate list too...

Polenth said...

I'm still figuring out how to work 'bombastic' into a story. One day!

writtenwyrdd said...

When I wore skirt suits in the long ago past, I preferred tights over pantyhose. Neither bothered me (and they didn't sag.) I must be weird. Of course, I don't own any now and haven't worn them in over ten years, seeing as I don't work in a place where they'd be useful or part of the dress code.

But tell us, Moonie, do you really hate overwriters? I couldn't tell.

Alex Green said...

Aww! I love my tights. But they are woolish and I wear my panties under them.

And my boots don't come off of their own accord for the entire day, Dylan. Make of that what you will.

Hunger is bad. Angry hunger is the worst. Sorry, Sweet.

Kim Kasch said...

Love tights - they keep me warm

but Hate "Monday Monday"

Winnie said...

Some tights are okay, but if I can get away with it, I prefer long johns. :)

Overwriters, though ... maybe they should be condemned to go around wearing cheap tight that irritate butt skin and sag at the crotch. That'd teach 'em!

Jon Paul said...

So if I'm hearing you--an overwriter who shows up and makes you wait for lunch while you're wearing tights would be really bad.

Note to self.

Sophie Playle said...

I've had experience of number 3. And 1. (And 2, come to think of it.)

Whirlochre said...

I've never understood the tights thing.

How do you womenfolk run for a cab without setting fire to your own legs?

WendyCinNYC said...

If you are indeed going to murder an overwriter, do it in a breathtaking, electrifying, melodramatic way.

Charles Gramlich said...

Oh man, I hate those lunch interrrupting meetings as well. I get actually dizzy if I don't get something to eat around my regular times.

Rebecca Knight said...

As a reader, nothing makes me want to chuck a book across a room as much as overwriting. Please, please, get back to the action.

Also, those lunch-interrupty meetings are just evil :P. I've had a few of those, only it was "Oh, don't go to the bathroom, they're arriving any minute!"

Bernard S. Jansen said...

It's shockingly decadent of you to cajole over-writers in such an incredibly bombastic, flippant way. You harangue us, yet we are proliferating staggeringly delicately-crafted prose which we know will be overwhelmingly and sincerely appreciated by refreshingly thoughtful publishers, once we approach them with coaxingly embellished query letters.

moonrat said...

Bernard, you actually gave me chills.

Sam Albion said...

tights are great, especially when you have hairy legs, and the hair pokes through the weave.. just my opinion. As for ass-crack itch: stockings and a garter belt solves that problem, and looks so much sexier!
