10 things that can go buh-bye.

This world would be fine without them.
I promise.

1. 70's rock radio stations. Ugh.

2. Pom poms. I know every crafter in the world disagrees with me here.
It just screams "homemade", to me.
It's an ongoing arguement between me and Julie.
One day I sarcastically said, "If only there were rainbow colored pom poms, my life would be complete."
And she promptly sent me pictures of rainbow pom poms.
And I clawed my eyes out.

3. Jumpy irratic critters. The ones where you don't know where they're going to go next, like grasshoppers, june bugs or mice. ACK!!

4. Mean people. Whatever.

5. Soft focus blurry photos. Glamour shots did it, and it really needs to stay in the 90's.

6. White chocolate. It's not even chocolate. It's just a wannabe.

7. Ticks.

8. Mullets. Mmmhmmm... "fool's tails" could also fall in this category.

9. Cilantro. Sorry lovers. I'm a hater.

10. Dial up internet. Seriously, in this day of twitter, facebook, blogging, tumblr, and everything else, who has time to wait 5 minutes to load a page?

You can disagree with me. It's okay, really.
Or you can add to my list.

Dragonflies have nothing to do with this, but I need a picture here...

I say no more skinny jeans.

(and I do love me some cilantro...sorry!)

I am going to email you, I have a question...

Dot O said...

I TOTALLY agree with 2,3,4,5,7,8, and 10.... However, I like cilantro and the 70s music - hey, I was a high schooler in the 70s. I also sort of like white "chocolate" - sorry about that, it may be a wannabe but when chocolate isn't available, it is the next best thing...

I came by way of Angie's blog. You are funny!!!

Heather Rodriguez said...

Definitely SKINNY JEANS and teased hair, funny shaved poodle's (that makes me want to claw my eyes out!), and the 800 times they play "FELIZ NAVIDAD" during the holidays.

Jenni said...

Aw come on! I love 70s rock and white chocolate both! The rest of your list is pretty on target. I'd like to add war and greed and intolerance. Or just intolerance and greed because maybe eliminating them would eliminate war. I'd also like to add my muffin top to the list along with the tight around the belly T-shirts and low rise jeans that only act to frame it. And Ke$ha. Definitely Ke$ha.

I love '70s music! Yes, there were some stinkers, but as a whole it's a lot better than the pop/rock music of the last 30 years.

But I can agree on most of the others. Especially white chocolate. It's not chocolate and it's nasty.

rentz said...

Cilantro? Really? I thought I liked you. This could definitely put a damper on our friendship... : )

Monica said...

I like '70s music, cilantro (but then, I'm a Cali girl) and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies could never be replaced with semi-sweet chocolate mac nut cookies. There's no way.
I could live without the Feliz Navidad song for sure! Cali girl or not.

Sew Gracious said...

I have to agree on all counts, except I do like "some" 70s songs although not enough to listen to a station-full.

I'd also like to say adios to humidity; thanks to summers in the South.

Heather | Cookie Mondays said...

I'd have to agree with 4 1/2 of those.

Jackie@Lilolu said...

I absolutely agree with the white chocolate...do people really think it tastes like chocolate? But I have to disagree with the cilantro. I'm latina and it's in my blood. I just love it.

I need to add Hannah Montana to that list. I can't take her anymore! I'm just glad my daughter didn't get all wrapped up in her media quicksand.

Julie @ Joy's Hope said...

Pom poms! Pom poms! Pom poms! Cilantro! Cliantro! Cliantro! There is no such thing as too much. I just had a salad for lunch and used cilantro instead of lettuce. You heard me. All cilantro. No lame lettuce. Bring it.

heather said...

love this list! not saying your choices are all my choices...just love the idea of this list!

heather said...

We live in the middle of nowhere. No DSL available. It is temporary housing, so I won't commit to 2 years with a satellite internet company. This leaves me with one lousy option. Dial up. It is MUCH slower than you remember. Much. It kills me. I bought an iPhone to help cope.

mmmgleisner said...

you are hilarious!! Thanks for making me smile!!

Martha said...

love the dragonfly picture...
and I really love your items...but cilantro and white chocolate lover I am...sorry:) but I'm with you with the rest:)

Amy said...

Amy D was just encouraging me the other day to add some pom poms to some curtains I'm making. I was loving the idea! And I like cilantro. The rest... I'm with you. One in particular... :)

Erica said...

i would like to add humidity to the list. and rompers on grown women.

Amy Sullivan said...

Well, it's my first time here, and although I agree with most of your list, I secretly love 70's rock (shhh!) and come on, white chocolate? You must rethink! :)

Alisha said...

You should have put a picture of a pom pom because I don't know what it is.

S Club Mama said...

I too do not like grasshoppers or june bugs. Yuck. Or mean people.

I do, however, LOVE white chocolate. Yum!

Ms.Kristi said...

All but #1 and #9 for me! Brilliant! ^_^ Down with the others!

Courtney Price ~ Vintage Ginger Peaches said...

Cilantro must stay... also 70s music... come on! :)

Wendy said...

Yeah, I'm not a fan of cilantro either. Blech. The rest of the stuff? Yeah, most of it can go, too. See how easy I am?

Miss Anne said...

this post cracked me up!!!

we're so on the same page.
literally, each one i nodded and was like... "yep, i could do without that ever"

:)

happy day sweet pea

memoriesforlifescrapbooks said...

I'd have to keep 70s rock in my world :)
But we could do without spam and telamarketers!!!

Erin @ BringingUpBurns said...

I live in my skinny jeans.
And can't get enough cilantro.
But the rest can go.

My jury is still out on poms...cause i haven't tried to make them yet. If they are freakishly easy and cheap...I might vote to keep.

If I never ever EVER saw another ant EVER...that would be just fine too.

The Perfect Trio said...

you and me? we could best IRL friends!!

Julie Harward said...

I just found your comment on one of my previous posts...I have been having problems with blogger publishing comments! I agree with this list, a good one. Looks like you have been jam-in..YUM! Come say hi :D

Beki - TheRustedChain said...

i agree mom. but 3 and 6 need to stay. what is cilantro???


love the girl

Graceful Moments said...

Don't know how I missed this F.Friday post. Kind of agree with your list. I still love white chocolate even though it is a wannabe. It should just be renamed and kept. I pretty much agree with the rest.
BTW, that's actually a damselfly instead of a dragonfly. The damsel's have two wings instead of four.
Great shot though!
Perhaps you should add: "People who correct the names of critters on my blog." : )

Graceful Moments said...

Or, you could add people who think they are reading a Fingerprint Friday post and aren't. Duh...: )
