Oh bother, I've been tagged!

Anu (grrrr) has tagged me and I am obligated to do the bidding :D

So it's pretty simple, I have write about 10 things that annoy me the most. (I am sure I can well exceed that number ;) ) So in no particular order:

1. People not picking after themselves.
2. Drama Queens.
3. Raisins.
4. Sarah Palin .
5. Rebooting the computer.
6. People who give their opinion about something they know nothing about. ( Like if you've never been married, stop giving marital advice! )
7. Dirty/Smelly restrooms.
8. When the gas mark is near empty in the car, worse if the light is on.
9. Shopping! (Yeah believe it or not, I hate shopping)!!!
10. Someone who insults my country in front of me. I am an Indian. And if someone has seen/read/heard something they find distasteful, I don't want to know. I am a very proud Indian and there is no way you can say something derogatory and not make my blood boil.

Ok, I am done!!!! That was actually fun.
I would really really like to hear from these people:
1. Jeremy
2. Akansha
3. Anyone who comes across this post :)


  1. ok that list is hillarious...

    you made me think...ya rebooting and gas running out among other things including sarah palin are annoying!

  2. lol Anu.
    Raisins are the most annoying ;)

  3. i love raisins!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Such an enjoyable read ! This is what I really love about your blog. It is very Seinfeld-ish in the sense that it's never really about anything specific, but it's always identify-able. :)

    1. People not picking after themselves - yes, this annoys me, but I am married to the President of the club.
    2. Drama Queens - yes, very annoying. The antics are fun to read in a celebrity magazine but in real life, leave the attitude at the door.
    3. Raisins - I read somewhere/heard someplace or in some movie about someone's dislike for raisins because they feel like disgraced grapes, shriveled up into uncomfortable embarrassing nothingness. :)
    4. Sarah Palin: barely remember her. Dixie Chicks had a longer, better career, imo :). The first thing that comes to my head as I read this is "the mind has an extraordinary ability to obliterate unpleasant thoughts/experiences and unimportant information."
    5. Rebooting the computer - no longer my pet peeve. New job = new machine = windows 7 <= 5 seconds from bootup to online.
    6. People who give their opinion about something they know nothing about - count me in sista.
    7. Dirty/Smelly restrooms - yes, I will not eat at a restaurant if I visit a restroom that is in this state. If they dont care about a PUBLIC restroom at their establishment, they certainly wont care about the food which is cooked backstage.
    8. Low Fuel: I have never gone below the half-way mark (general paranoia, being the main reason. The other reason being that I am so clueless about cars that I am nervous I will offend the automobile Gods if I go below the halfway mark. Then bad karma like my car stopping in the middle of freeway will happen to me).
    9. Shopping: love it and all versions of it. Online, In-store, window shopping, ebay, craigslist, thrift store shopping, you name it.
    10. Indianism: yes, being put in a box or being treated as a stereotype is annoying and at times hurtful, to me too.

  5. akansha, thanks for taking the time out to read and comment :)
    and dude comparing to sienfeld, WOW! thanks, but i think you're being too generous :D
    I love your take on SP. it's funny :)
    I barely think any girl would agree with me on the shopping part :(

    So when you updating your blog?

  6. My sister used to not like raisins because she was afraid a spider was hiding inside each raisin.
