People that apologize, but not really.

All the English and Testa

Or, listening to someone's troubles and saying 'sorry' then receive the backlash 'what are you sorry for, you didn't do anything!'

Then having to explain 'sorry you are having to go through that'

I've honestly never liked any of his films.  I love the material he draws from, but I hate his interpretation of it.

Right, it's a soulless exercise in irony and "look at all the cool stuff I like".

Right.  Like a teenager posting links to art other people created on his social media page as a "means of expressing who he is".  We've got it.  A consumer and regurgitator.  Nothing special.
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

Yeah, that's what I said.  "I love the material he draws from, but I hate his interpretation of it."  He's pretty much the definition of a hack.

Being stuck in the house watching weather TV for days on end, because it's not safe to go anywhere...

I'll be so happy when this is over on Monday.

Peeve: girl posts a before/after pic on a fitness board, and in the caption explains how she has an eating disorder and is trying to combat it. The "before" is when she was chubby but healthier, and the "after" is where she is now and what she wants to get away from. Cue a bunch of guys ignoring the caption and saying of the after pic "gee you look great!" and "you look much leaner now, good job!"  ::)  I get that they mean well, but...

I hope she didn't find that too discouraging.   :-\


Peeves:
clutter in my house (only)
pretty much all aspects of clothes shopping
seed ticks (my hiking misery was a tad delayed  ;D)
celebrity drama and gossip (and the tabloids that feed on it)
shoes that are paired up backwards (right-on-left and vice versa)
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Peeve: the fact that the big bad in the new Star Wars saga is named "Supreme Leader Snoke".  It's such an obvious nod to the Harry Potter generation.  J.J. Abrams can kick rocks.

I hate it with all my heart when a web page has a HUGE header/navigation that's position: fixed or position: sticky, meaning that it stays at the top of the page no matter how far down you scroll, giving you significantly less space to actually read the site. I will literally use the browser's development tools to alter it to stay at the top of the page where it belongs.

The fact that in much of north Chicago anything that isn't wheat,  oat,  or gluten free bread seems to be non-existent.  Not cool if I have to work out here and try to buy things to make a sandwich. For the love of Vishnu,   I'd take wonder bread over this stuff.

Yeah, this one dude in the breakroom at my job must've said it to himself on-and-off for twenty minutes (no exaggeration) - with the rest of us ignoring him - until someone walked in who bit and replied, "That's a funny commercial!"  Emboldened, he then began saying it with more frequency, hoping others would join in.  They didn't.  He's usually a fairly normal guy, but it's like that commercial gave him Tourette's.

I think this is unfortunate. I cycle through Frosty the Snowman, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer and Santa Is Coming to Town, all year long. Whenever I am struggling, frustrated, or depressed, these songs are what I whistle. They are happy songs, reflecting happier times, and they are efficacious.

I recommend watching the beginning of the King and I, and taking Anna's advice seriously. The problem with this country is that there is not enough whistling, in my opinion.

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

Peeve: When people try to pepper their conversation with Yiddish slang but can't make the "sch" sound, so they end up saying "slep" instead of schlep, "stick" instead of "schtick", "smooze" instead of "schmooze", etc.  Just stop.  You're embarrassing yourself and everyone listening to you.

Every time there's a post-apocalyptic sci-fi story in fiction, people feel the need to say that it's like The Terminator or The Matrix (or both), even if the new story has very little clear influence or even resemblance to those two franchises.

The phrase "Zombie apocalypse." It stopped being funny and interesting at least 10 years ago but people still keep inserting it into all kinds of things as if it's fresh and witty.

Sorry, couldn't resist. I'll go flog myself for my sins.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift.

So the implication would seem to be that the book's not ancient, just the writer?

I think this is unfortunate. I cycle through Frosty the Snowman, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer and Santa Is Coming to Town, all year long. Whenever I am struggling, frustrated, or depressed, these songs are what I whistle. They are happy songs, reflecting happier times, and they are efficacious.

I recommend watching the beginning of the King and I, and taking Anna's advice seriously. The problem with this country is that there is not enough whistling, in my opinion.

Whistling these days just kind of reminds me of Japanese video games that think it's the beginning and end of all things "cowboy." Though I do still love Ennio Morricone (and this).
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Wet socks is one of mine. I don't like winter and one of the reasons why is because snow gets tracked inside, it melts, and then you step in it. That is eww when you're wearing socks. It feels awful and it makes your feet cold.

(Yes I'm totally ranting since this happened to me multiple times today.)

Scented laundry detergents. You can smell people with it from a distance. It is not a good smell. And if you have the misfortune of entering their house the smell will seep into your own clothes.

When you call for a cab and they say "it'll be an hour," and ok, fine, whatever, this company ALWAYS takes forever to pick you up, so that's frustrating but normal. I guess just another crap part of living in the sticks (no Uber out here either). But then over an hour and a half passes and they still haven't arrived, so you call for an update, and they say, "Let me check... [puts on hold] ... ok, unfortunately we won't be able to pick you up."  >:(

Being totally unprepared for feeling cold because I'm used to Rio's normal weather and not having a heater or finding good coats. 11 Celsius is too much to me. I should probably buy a good coat, since I'm soon going to visit a friend literally in the coldest city of the state (in high school we had the inside joke we'd have a school trip there to see some snow - which may actually happen but is extremely rare).

Tell me about, a cab made me miss a class once.

People not knowing how to use the past participle. E.g. "I've already ran five miles!"
