50 Things I Hate

04 Aug

As promised – the sequel….

Disclaimer: If you have or do any of these, “Good on you!” as the Aussies say. I have nothing against you as a person. I might not like the “thing” but can still like the person. Plus, if we were all the same, it’d be a pretty boring world.

    If I ever start to swear excessively, please don’t stop reading. I only do it occassionally. Still love me because I also hate Yo Gabba Gabba, haiku, and running. Passionately hate running. And tapioca. Ew.

    You hate camping so much you listed it twice? Actually, I think that means you’ve only listed 49 things you hate . . .

    And is it sleeping on the ground that you hate? Because cabin camping can be very fun.

    Thank GOD — I thought I was the only hater in a sea of Yo Gabba Gabba loving parents 🙂

    Insta-Mom –

    Promise to not stop reading! I love your writing, and I think we’ve got too much in common for any swearing to get in the way. And I actually don’t mind a well-placed swear word for emphasis. 🙂

    TLK –

    Oops! Didn’t know camping was there twice. So much for proof reading at late hours with not enough sleep. I corrected it and added a new “hate” at #50. And, no, it wasn’t a reflection of how much I hate camping. If there’s a bed and plumbing involved, I’ll give it a go. It’s the sleeping on the ground and no plumbing or campground facilities that don’t work for me.

    iMommy –

    You are definitely NOT alone. Insta-Mom is at least one more on the list of people asking, “What is UP with DJ Lance??”

    I love this list – I may have to do one of my own! We ate Cream of Wheat every morning for a large chunk of our childhood (me and my brothers). Haven’t touched it since. 🙂

    Very, very fun. And well, you know I’m with you on spiders. Also curling irons. Don’t get me started on nuts in brownies, cookies or even ice cream. Defiled! Ruined! Wasted!

    Ha. Fun to read – I’m with you more than I’m not. Although how can you hate swimming? Weightlessness and not needing to give the kids baths that night = best sport ever. And I hate camping too. And Walmart is the devil.

    Minivan Mom –

    My mom’s theory about the swimming thing is that I had perpetual, horrible ear infections as a small child, which resulted in tubes in my ears. My mom was constantly telling me to not get water in my ears, and somehow, I got terrified of my head being underwater, water on my face and water in my ears. Didn’t learn to swim until 8th grade & HATED the lessons. I’m also slightly phobic about creepy living things in lakes, ponds and oceans. I can see why OTHERS might love swimming – I just don’t. Obviously we have many other “hates” in common, so we can still be friends. 🙂
