Warning: Irate Blog Post

I am certain that those of you who know me will be surprised at what you are about to read, because you know me as such a kind-hearted and tolerant person...(why are you snickering?)

Thanks to a little McLinky Monday (does anyone else almost always write McKinky Monday too, or is that just me?) blog prompt over at the Real Housewives of Oklahoma, I now present my top 5 biggest pet peeves!

1. Drawn on Eyebrowns

Why do people think this is attractive? I am sure there are some dire situations where this might be considered okay...maybe....but for the majority of individuals, what is so wrong with the eyebrows God gave you that you should remove them and pencil them in, or heaven forbid, tattoo them on? There should be a waiting period and/or drug test that accompanies requests for these kind of beauty enhancements (using these terms loosely).

2. Unsolicited Advice
I realize that I appear younger than I least, I hope I still do...this has been a massively mind-numbing week at home, balancing work and children during this blizzard....
But when I am with my three sons, and they appear to be out of my control, remember that there are a lot of different situations that play into a child's behavior, so before you tell me how you or someone you know would handle my 5 year old who won't eat his food, or my 6 and 8 year old who won't stop fighting, I want you to take that advice and shove it keep it to yourself. This goes double for when you are a guest in my home. If you don't know me, mind your own business. If you do know me, mind your own business. I am an intelligent, emotionally stable person married to another intelligent, emotionally stable person, with good jobs and 3 great kids who are sometimes affected by lack of sleep or hormones or a step away from the schedule, or all of the above, etc.
Side note: there are a very select number of people that I will accept advice from, whether I ask for it or not. If I haven't told you are one of them, you AREN'T!

3. Facebook Apps
I think that social media is an excellent way to stay connected to my friends and family. However....I don't care about your Mafia, or your farm, or you fish, or your city, or your cafe, or whether or not you think I'm a good kisser. Side note: I think I have finally grown numb to the updates about your profile picture...

4. Mispronounced words
Similar is not pronounced SIM-U-LER. It makes my head hurt when people say words incorrectly. I may not be OCD about anything else, but correct pronounciation just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

5. Stars Who Whine / Paparazzi
Yes, I included these two as one. If I hear Kristen Stewart complain one more time about how hard it is to just live a normal life after playing Bella on Twilight, I'm going to scream! Seriously, you work a couple of months, make more money that I will make in my lifetime, and then complain about how you can't go to the bagel shop because the paparazzi are hounding you. And you! You, paparazzi, why do you have to take a picture of a celebrity getting something to eat? I realize that most of the women in Hollywood are extremely thin, but I do not need photographic evidence that they eat. Nor do I need evidence that they went to the gym, or went grocery shopping, or shared a yacht with Justin Bieber over New Year's Eve (Side note: High Five, Selena Gomez!).

There you have it. I hope you don't think less of me now that you know how I really feel...

You make excellent points!! Very well written!

I completely agree with all of them.

The facebook crap is SO exhausting! I don't want to play so quit asking me!

How about the word supposably? How hard is it to say supposedly? I mean, seriously?

AMEN, amen, amen, amen...AND AMEN, especially to KStew. She needs to get a grip! Seriously?! Your life is NOT bad. I would switch you in a heartbeat (ok, maybe not, but in theory). Let me make out with RPattz and get paid for hit and be the object of every girl's (ok, not EVERY girl's, but you know) fantasies.

Drawn on eyebrows. Hallelujah. Oh my goodness, why do people feel like they need to do that?! They immediately have angry eyes and that is just not attractive. However, my Granny has drawn on eyebrows, and I love her...and her eyebrows. She's the only one that can get by with it, in my book. My little boy has asked her on several occasions why she draws her eyebrows on. LOL. Gotta love a curious kid!

I love your blog! The cherries and all the red immediately makes me happy.

Thanks for linking up!
