aside from our desire for this dude

we both desire this one as well…

his name is mozzarella and he’s a total badass. i mean, come on, just look at it him. he’d totally kick Josh Duhamel’s ass in a fight. plus…he’s got a whole entourage…

Now, normally, i can’t stand Fergie. I find her obnoxious and annoying. and over-exposed. and awful manly. and clearly in need of some depends undergarments.

but, she’s got fantastic taste in t-shirts.

yes…that’s her…wearing tokidoki.

and this is me…wearing my tokidoki

maybe i’ll consider taking her off of my list of pet peeves…i can possibly replace her with Jaslene from America’s Next Top Model. because, yikes!


i mean, i’ve got enough annoying things in my life to complain about…in addition to the last ones i mentioned…purse dogs, tanorexics, bad drivers, smelly office food…i’ve always got time to mention some others..

like the lazy people who use the drive-thru at Tim Horton’s in the morning (even though there are exactly three customers in the store and 45 cars in the drive-thru) and block the few cars who are actually looking to run in and get their coffee quickly.

what the fuck is up with this??!??!?! and as i’m trying to squeeze my car through the tiny space, the next car in the line-up moves up so i can’t get through. is he afraid i’m trying to skip the line?

this is all i want people..

also…how about people who cannot figure out how to use a Harmony Remote? i mean…it has a friggin’ built-in HELP DESK. it couldn’t possibly be any easier…

and those the Bell Beavers…Frank and Gordon…

what marketing genius decided that this was a) funny and b) not going to get annoying after the 450th airing??

and lastly, at least for today…

toilet paper should look like this


and NOT like this:


  1. I don’t mind the beavers so long as they switch up the ads every now and then. To be honest I’ve never even heard of a Harmony Remote! Here is my short list of pet peeves off the top of my head:

    – Parents who don’t teach their kids to cover their mouth when they sneeze (yuck)
    – People who chew ice (the sound make me want to die)
    – People who chew gum with their mouths open
    – The main character girl on Bones
    – Rogers and Bell customer service
    – Rude salespeople
    – Hilary Duff
    – Toronto traffic

  2. here’s a few of mine:

    – massive trucks who don’t let you merge onto the service road. But I showed one of them and jammed on my breaks in front of him in retaliation, he was NOT too pleased (smart move in a VW Golf, I think not .. but it SURE FELT GOOD)
    – disrespectful rude kids
    – people who jump the line at the bakery counter like there ass is made of gold or something (I work in THAT kind of a neighbourhood…)
    -older siblings that watch 13+movies in front of 6 yr old and give him nightmares so mum stays up all night with him (it WAS only Indiana Jones .. but that guy that smoulders at the end – scared him to pieces)
    -crappy office coffee

    ya .. in a FANTASTIC mood today

  3. where’s the TP pic?

    AND… OMG— comment #1 (Steph) Rogers Customer Service all the way. I spend THREE frickin’ days on the phone with them the other week. UNREAL!

  4. Thankfully, Holly confirmed that I am not TP-blind.

    My #1 peeve is interrupting… I mean, do you seriously believe that whatever you have to say supersedes what I am in the middle of saying? It’s just respect.

  6. The toilet paper…YES!
    And the toilet seat up… BAD!
    Potty humor irritates the heck outa me!

  7. TP thing doesn’t bug me that much.
    Here’s my list
    1) People on the train/Subway who blow bubbles and chomp gum
    2) People in food courts who push to get a table ahead of you
    3)Marie Osmond.

    I wish you could hear my hairstylist’s impression of Jaslene. OMG. I was laughing so hard I was crying. In short he says she sounds like a dolphin which is true.

  8. This is my first time here. I love this design. It’s so unique (no, not code for really crappy and weird). I’ve never heard “tanorexic” before. Brilliant. And yikes indeed. So glad she can be a role model for young girls, huh?

  9. I wholeheartedly agree about the toilet paper. Also, Jaslene is freaky and I can’t believe she won that season. Although I really think she is prettier in person (well, live on tv) than in a lot of her pics.

    And another annoying thing? Those ikea radio ads that have the guy with the accent. Is it supposed to be swedish? I don’t know. But I hate them. I don’t think any of them are clever and I change stations when they come on because they are so stupid and supremely irritating.

  11. I hate Fergie too! Ugh. And also, the toilet paper thing? Probably my biggest pet peeve. Seriously people, it’s not that hard.

  12. Sometimes I like to do my toilet paper wrong. makes me feel rebellious…. I swear…. And, the smelly food at Scholastic has to be the smelliest food on the planet. I had the joy of being dreadfully morning sick there, so I know (as do you…)!

  13. Jaslene slaughters me, she sucks so bad!

    Whats up with the Tokidoki love today( (woot woo!t)? I dig the bags for my diaper bag since I can toss it in the wash, but I have to say I am a Bastardino lover (Cactus Girls Dog).

    Can’t stand Fergie, something is sorely wrong with her face. ANd why is she sleeping with my future husband? BOOO!

  16. That man is so sexy. I love him in Las Vegas. As for things that annoy me? Well you already read about that!

    Miss’s last blog post..And it begins

    Comment by Miss on February 5, 2008
  17. Josh Duhamel – major guilty pleasure of mine in his show Las Vegas – LOVE that show. Fergie – ICK and eewww.

    Jaslene – one of IMHYSOCO one of the worst ANTM. another eewww… (and Nicole – ugh)

    And yes, toilet paper goes over the TOP people. we have 4 rolls hanging in each stall at work, and as I sit there in each one and take care of my business, I also make it my business to change the rolls to over the top, the proper way.

    Comment by monstergirlee on February 5, 2008
  18. lol. I am annoyed by Beyonce! Why is she so shiny? Why?!

    And I’m just happy if the tp is in the bathroom these days;-)
    I do hate when people put empty milk, ketchup etc back in the fridge and are annoyed when we are out!

    shay’s last blog post..A little pat on the back…

    Comment by shay on February 5, 2008
  19. I love pet-peeve listings! A few of mine:

    Pants that are too short, pedal-pushers/clam diggers included. I also hate it when pants get caught in the back of someone’s shoes… ARGH!

    I hate skankasauruses and overly tanned individuals.

    I absolutely cannot stand it when people don’t use their blinker. Drives me nuts!

    And ditto on the toilet paper; there’s only one way to roll, and that is paper hanging down the front, not the back.

    Comment by Kristie on February 5, 2008
  25. Does Mozzarella have an uzi? I’m a bit scared of it myself.

    I have to say that I didn’t know about the whole right way/wrong way with the tp until my years ago MIL (whom I was just living in sin with her son at the time) told me how lovely my house was…I even had the tp the right way. Of course I was embarassed that I didn’t know this obviously crucial tidbit (& glad I had lucked out in placing the tp correctly). And seriously, THAT is the only compliment she could come up with?!?

  27. My municipality has actually had to tell the one Tim Horton’s in our town to fix the traffic issue with their Drive-Thru because it ends up flowing out onto the ramp onto the 401. Awesome!

  31. YES about the toilet paper. And YES about Tim Hortons. JUST GO IN, PEOPLE! IT IS FASTER!
    My husband has almost totally convinced me that Fergie is hot – she looks like (because she actually is) an adult woman and not some barely post-pubescent skinny little girl, which is refreshing.

  32. One of the perks to living alone is that no one put the Quilted Northern on so the roll doesn’t feed over the top.

  33. At least the tp is on the holder!!! At my house apparently I am the only one capable of putting it on.
