i just can’t

In my bullet journal, I have a section called 10-things in which I’ve created random lists of 10. Here’s my first:

10 things I can not get behind

  1. Cottage Country > Once upon a time, I subscribed to a few stylish Canadian home magazines and every spring, there’d be features about Cottage Country. I am sorry, but these mansions are NOT cottages. You’re fooling no one Ontario.
  2. Paint Nite > The only thing I think I’d like about Paint Nite is the wine but it’s probably cheap like the art supplies provided.
  3. Game of Thrones (or as I keep calling it Games of Throne) > Whatever, It sucks. When the baby dragons showed up, I bailed.
  4. Cruise ships > You’re stuck on a boat with a bunch of strangers and then you’re only given a few hours to explore a port.  I am way too much of a planner to vacation with these constraints.
  5. Running skirts > Why? Isn’t the point of athletic wear to dress down, not up?
  6. Almond butter > I tried. It’s gross. Give me my KRAFT crunchy.
  7. Kids cartoons and kids music > Of course I love Raffi and Toy Story but most are crap. This may be why I only have one child. In general, the whole kid’s section of Netflix makes me what to scream. (I also hate the Simpson’s)
  8. Corelle > You know, those really thin plates and bowls? The sound of utensils scraping the bottom makes me cringe.
  9. Minivans > I mean this is obvious, right? Everyone who makes the switch says they love their minivan but we all know the truth…  And is it just me or does every near-accident on the road involve a minivan?
  10. Urban camo >  Who are you hiding from? Ain’t no deers in Dartmouth Crossing.

Sorry if this offends y’all, but I just can’t!

1/ 2/ 3/ 4/ 5/ 6/ 7/ 8/ 9/ 10

I’m back.

Friday’s online finds: Inspirational, educational or just silly. Here is what I found this week…

       

oh, and did you know that Command + Control + Space Bar brings up the emoji keyboard on your computer? 🤓
and…  if you Google a celebrity’s name and “bacon number,” you get their degrees from Kevin Bacon. (source)

Have a great weekend. I missed Ya.
