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'
There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14.12

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 loving the Tarantino hate. Atleast he has good taste in movies...

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.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

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)
