A Jolly Good Moan

I got tagged by Jude at Jude’s Writing Corner to do this meme. It’s all about moaning, so who am I to turn down this opportunity.

5 people who will be annoyed that I tagged them.. mmm:

Well, to be honest I don’t really want to annoy people, so shall we say that if there’s something you’re annoyed about and you want to have a go, then please feel free to moan.

4 things to go into room 101 and be removed forever from the face of this earth:
Starbucks (that one was a bit obvious wasn’t it?)

Ligne 13 (who needs to get to work?)

Dubya Dumb Bush


3 things that people do that make me want to shake them violently are:
Amble down the street very slowly and then without warning stop suddenly so that you canon into the back of them

Wear fur coats. What’s wrong with polyester? It doesn’t feel slimy and you get the added effect of looking like you’ve recently had your hand on a Van der Graf generator.

Anyone can make a mistake, the second time you roll your eyes and think oh well they’ll learn, the third time you bite your lip, but the fourth time, well you know you want to shake them and knock on that thick head of theirs and shout: ‘Hello? Is anyone In?’

2 things that I find myself moaning about are:

The state of the world

1 thing the above answers tell me about myself is:
That if we lived in a world without work, money or dumb people I would be a much happier person.

Good list, I'm too out of town to worry about Starbucks, but apparently Italy is doing very well out of this obsession with coffee, as they make the steam machine and toast the beans.

Starbucks owe me a load of gigs. They stopped live music when they opened in our local big bookstore and I used to play in my ceilidh band there and get paid in record tokens! It was ace!

Jude said...

Hey Verilion, I am sorry to have annoyed you with this but I think we are kindred spirits. I was nodding all the way with your list!

Verilion said...

Hi Apprentice, please do worry about Starbucks, read Jon m's comment. Somebody always does benefit from big business I'm sure, but it's some big fat cat rather than the little person.
And jon, Bloody STARBUCKS see, the more I hear about them, the more I hate them. GRrr...
Hello Jude, oh no you didn't annoy me at all, it was quite a fun one as memes go! I got talked into joining that Face thingie by Minx! Shall we be friends then? ( :

Scarlett! You old rascal you! Sorry I didn't include you in the thanks in the post above, but I post and then go back and check comments, otherwise I get all tangled up in commenting and forget what I wanted to say. Anyway, it was hysterical this morning how everywhere I went to leave my awards you had been there first! I was beginning to think we had a mind meld or something!

Minx said...

As mem's go, I quite like that one. I wish I could hate Starbucks but we have no outlets nearby. I will hate them on your behalf (except the carrot cake and umm, coffee in general, because I loves it).

Verilion said...

Minx! You're going to have to do a wee bit better than that. How's about when Starbucks do move in (cos they have a habit of doing that), they will buy up every bit of real estate and completely flood the market with their stores. Everywhere you turn will be a starbucks and all small teashops/coffeeshops within it's evil radius will go out of business. Of course so will some of the starbucks because they've opened too many stores. But no matter because they will then sell their extra less profitable stores making a huge profit on the property and sod all the people who've lost their jobs. Will that do it?

Marie said...

Great list. I totally agree.

Verilion said...

Thanks Marie, I'm continuing to spread my anti-s message, but maybe I've got it all out for now!
