In the meantime, meet Odessa. She blogs at Book Eater and was kind enough to send me a fully-formed COTW list so that I didn't have to repeat the same old questionnaire (hint: anything you can do to allow me to be as lazy as possible will expedite your COTW post. You can even make up your own questions. Yes, I am that lazy!)
Here is Odessa. Her photo may be tiny but her misanthropy is massive.
I hid behind Shakespeare (how typical of an English major).
There are many things that annoy me. Life's not easy when you're and English major in a world of text speak. However, one thing that would not annoy me is being curmudgeon of the week.
I participate in one of the nerdiest competitions on earth -- Forensic Speech -- and as a way of finding a topic to present in a humorous and persuasive way our coach asked me to create a list over the course of 24 hours of things that annoy me. Here it is:
People that don't use their turn signals [Ed note: OMG, me too!]
Not having time between classes to pee
Not having time to do laundry
Text speak outside of text messages
Unrequited love (or listening to people talk about it)
People who hate books
Matching mono-chromatic mother-daughter outfits
Reality shows [Ed note: I will allow on the condition that this does not include The Greatest Show of Our Time, America's Next Top Model]
This list encompasses but one day of annoyance.
I thank you for your consideration.
