I've seen femdom vids of girls making a guy eat their toenail clippings while they talk about what a loser the guy is. Not my thing, but hey, it's better than ashes from a cigarette, right? Anyway, that's different than leaving them lying around. Now booger disposal is perhaps a different matter.

I've tried them ALL.  No dice.  All my cases are incurable.  If my own case bothers you so much, perhaps a consult with one of these good therapists that you know might help you cope with that.  ;D

Do you ever mix in any of the toe jam, for that extra bite and consistency?   What do you do with your finger nail clippings?  I juice mine and add a little cayenne and garlic.  Great for hangovers!

Pet peeve: people who not only insist their personal opinions are "facts", but ridicule anyone who asks for more proof than just their assertion, using cute pictures they found on The Internets.  ::)

Sorry, theistgal, I can't resist.  ;D



All you did was remind me of my unrequited crush on Gene Wilder.  ;D

Pet Peeve #28

When I'm watching a competition show, and we're down to the final 4 (or whatever), and someone says "Well I have a 25% chance of winning." I hate that.

I dislike the soap/sanitizer they have in most public restrooms, and how soft it makes my hands. I absolutely hate the sensation of touching stuff for like a half hour after I use it.

They should have their FB page confiscated until they promise to stop sharing stupid stuff.  Most intelligent people stopped sending stupid fowards around 1997, why must we now put up with a more annoying version of forwards on facebook?!?!

Pet Peeve #45: When products claim that "some settling may have occurred during shipping," and what they really mean is "expect this package to be half full." Not so bad when it's a $3 bag of chips. A little more annoying when it's a $50 dietary supplement.  :police:

I just go into "uh-huh" mode.  Eventually they get the hint that the only response I'm giving is "uh-huh" and end the call.
