117 - Forgetting the toast
Ah how we love toast in the morning but it does seem to be a major source of irritations. So there you are with your bread in the toaster and it pops up and it’s not quite brown enough, well why not pop it down for a few more seconds? You promptly do so only to be distracted by something and returning at a sprint to see two charred black slices pop out - doh!
116 - Waiting at a crossing for the green man
Whilst stood at a pedestrian crossing a friend of mine (whilst slightly tipsy) once said “the green man’s awesome” - which is well a little over selling him, but yes the green man is useful. He is not useful when he is taking his time, when you’re standing there in wind and rain and the bloody lights won’t change - red man is just shining away laughing at you getting...
115 - New sock fluff
New socks are great, they feel nice and comfy, no funny holes that feel a bit cold when you stand on wooden floors. But when you take them off you’re feet are covered in little black bits of fluff. It looks ridiculous and you can never tell how many washes and wears it will take to stop this fluffy mess. My advice, don’t wear new socks if you’re hoping to get some action, one...
114 - That thing
What do I mean by that thing? Well it’s a trivial thing that doesn’t spoil something but it’s always there in the back of your mind and it pops up from time to time. You know like Uma Thurman having big hands and feet or Evangeline Lilly having chubby fingers. You aren’t going to dislike something because of it, I mean if you were lucky enough to be asked you...
113 - Catching your nail on something
When you catch your nail and bend it back a bit it bloody hurts but as it falls into a category of injuries that are painful and annoying but not adult enough to be able to complain about it is therefore a little irritating.
112 - Reading a popular book
I’ve just finished reading Steig Larsson’s Millenium trilogy, a great set of books that I really enjoyed. It is at the moment a very popular set of novels and there’s always a strange feeling reading a book that’s really popular and everyone else is reading. The same way everyone was reading the Da Vinci code when that became very popular. It somehow feels there a little...
111 - Sharing a lift (Elevator)
It’s never comfortable sharing a lift (or elevator for those from foreign shores). Even if there’s a couple of you and one person steps in you feel you can no longer continue chatting and have to stand looking uncomfortably at each other. God help you if you’re in one of those really small ones all squashed in a hotel in Spain in the middle of summer… lovely.
110 - Being in your hotel room when the maid comes
It sometimes happens that you spend most of the day out yet you still manage to be in your room when the maid turns up. You don’t want to send her away as it could do with a tidy and you need some more tea bags, but after saying you don’t mind her coming in it gets kinda awkward. You just sat there whilst she tidies up around you - I mean you can hardly carry on that naked dancing...
109 - Impossible plastic packaging
You know the type of stuff they put memory cards in? You have to hack at the edges trying not to stab anything vital, both in the packaging and on your limbs. Once you get an opening however it’s still hugely difficult to get the packet open without slicing fingers on the now razor sharp plastic edges.
108 - Being bored when you've got stuff to do
You sit their browsing around doing nothing, thinking there must be more to do on the internet that this and feeling thoroughly bored. Yet at the back of your mind you know you have loads of work to do yet can’t bring yourself to do it, whether it be proper paid work or just the washing and ironing. You can feel the guilt yet you still sit their looking through failblog looking at pointless...
