Does This Bother You?!

Today at work, I walked into the kitchen and, like always, there is stuff all over the table that is OBVIOUSLY supposed to go back into the refrigerator. Now, when you work at a company with a median age of 26.5 (I learned that at our company meeting yesterday) I understand that some people may still be adjusting to being out of college. I guess it is hard for some people to not be slobs. And no, your mother does not work here. But honestly people, mayonnaise goes in the fridge!!! Oh, and so does turkey and cheese- DUH!!!

In all honesty, things going in the fridge isn't the point of my rant. It just made me realize how many pet peeves I actually have. I know that everyone has things that always bother them. So, I started to make the list mentally in my head, and I realized that a lot of things have the potential to bother me. Ha Ha. Don't worry, I won't sit here and type them all out - that would be boring for you to read, and I would look like a beeeeotch!

Although, I can't help but list just a few so that in case you do this, you can stop doing it around me! :)

-chewing with your mouth open or having people be able to hear you chew (SO GROSS and probably my #1 pet peeve)
-not using the proper form of a word (too vs. to, where vs. wear, etc)
-pictures hung crooked on a wall
-not replacing something when you use the last of it
-wearing black with black and the two blacks not matching

OK, that is enough. I have to cut myself off or I will keep going. I mean, I know everyone has pet peeves, but I guess I just never really thought about mine- let alone make a mental list that was longer than the waiting list of a hot new club. Oh well!!

Black, Orange and Nothing to Wear

So, Halloween is 3 days away, and in my normal fashion, I still don't know what I am going to be. Well, for the Halloween Party at work on Friday I have a costume that is part of a group, but as for a costume for the main event, I am drawing a blank. Sure, I could buy a pair of wings and be an angel (which would only be dressing up in my true colors) or find some typical costume that lacks creativity. I just can't seem to think of anything to be.

And when Halloween comes, I can't help but think of one of the best movie quotes I have ever heard, compliments of the movie Mean Girls. "Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it. "

Now, I am not innocent when it comes to taking a perfectly wholesome costume and turning it into the scandalous version. Like, when I was homemaker Barbie - complete with a slip, apron, spatula and heels. Or a cowgirl in platforms and a tied up flannel. It is not hard to find a cute idea for a costume, cut the amount of material needed in half and have a nice "adult" version of the costume!

I just can't haven't found something that I really want to be. Everything I find is either too time consuming to create, too boring or just not fun. So, hopefully I will be inspired between now and Saturday when it is time to go out. And if not, well, Michael and I will just wait to go out until later when everyone is drunk and won't remember that we don't have costumes. hahaha
