Annoying Things That Annoy Me . . . Annoyingly

Sometimes, we simply get annoyed about things that there may or may not be a plausible cause for. Perhaps there was something from our childhood that has rooted a giant that is now in your life that just drives you crazy?

YES! Well . . .               Upset Pout Face Angry Woman Emotion Dissatisfied

This is a stupid and completely unnecessary list (not to mention a total waste of time) of SOME of those things that get under my skin and crawl around like wriggling hell worms that hate cute, adorable puppies and cotton candy Halloween pretzels with sugar sprinkles.

So, here we go!

  1. CHEWING! I despise chewing, and here’s why: it’s so-o-o a waste of time. I mean, sure there is a host of reasons why we must engage in the chewing process, but OMG! Is there not something else I could be using my time for? Um, let me thi – YES!
  2. Eating. Eating follows the same reasoning as chewing, so let’s move on . . . .
  3. Restroom Activities. Sigh. Do I have to say anything, really?
  4. Holier-Than-Thou Attitudes. Damn. No, this one goes on my things that piss me the “F” off more than mini size milkshakes.
  5. Bad Drivers. What defines a bad driver, you may ask? Well, a bad driver is a person that clearly needs to retake a driver’s test. Driving 20 miles per hour under the posted speed limit? Bad driver. Someone who flies around you like a bat out of hell just to come to an immediate slow down to make a turn? Bad driver. Pulling out in front of you on a major road and doesn’t start to come to posted speed until 300 feet down the road, thus causing you to slow down to a near complete stop? BAD FRICK’N DRIVER!
  6. Little Annoying Things. This should be a list of its own. Things such as: fad clothes, fad haircuts, attitudes against you because you haven’t jumped on the FAD train. Being late for something only to have to deal with a bad driver. Water rings left on the table from the condensation from your glass. Ok. You get the point.
  7. Stupid People. Need . . . I . . . say . . . more? (Weak and badly timed laugh)
  8. Extremists. More specifically, extremists that lack the ability to use their common sense to look at facts and history and make an intelligent decision on a matter instead of believing something AS fact just because some one says it is or else.
  9. Smacking While Eating or Chewing Gum. Are you seriously asking for every living thing on the planet capable of slapping you to slap you? Are you? Seriously?
  10. Talking During a Movie at a Movie Theater. Have you ever seen a large bag filled with super buttered popcorn used as a lethal weapon? No? Then keep talking!
  11. Making a Cup of Coffee or Tea and There’s NO SUGAR! Or, even worse, only a few grains of sugar to mock you from accomplishing your life goal of a delicious cup of yumminess.
  12. Political CRAP! Yes, I capitalized every single letter of the word CRAP.
  13. Crinkle Noises From Cellophane and Chip Bags. More specifically, said noise(s) in a quiet room.

Alright. This can go on forever, so let me just make a paragraph structure of the next few things right off the top of my head to help speed things up. Annoyed Mauzen Stroke Cat Stress Teeth Annoy

Dying batteries, ass kissers (which should be number one on this list), bugs (gnats, flies, fleas, and mosquitos especially), yapping and whiney dogs – not to mention barking dogs that never ever shut up, humidity, being hungry . . . and/or thirsty, light bulbs blowing out, bleeding on the job, solicitors, being sick – especially having a drippy nose, people who do something wrong then look at you like it’s your fault and are willing to lash out at you about it, pin pointing a problem to a “professional” and they still say you’re wrong, cleaning (dust, dishes, clothes, etc.), people who think you are less of a human because you don’t live and think like they do, the fact that there are laws to enforce laws that have been made to enforce the laws that enforce the original laws which are more than likely stupid and pointless to begin with, having to go to the doctor for anything, fumbling with coffee filters, tea going bad, soda going flat, blog posts like this one . . . although they are fun to write (smiley face), always running out of gas in your vehicle, body aches and pains, dead cell phone batteries and no signal areas – the dreaded “dead zones”, war (not the song, btw. That song rocks!), small parking spaces meant for your car that are only big enough for a bicycle, people that act like they’re happy all the time when you know they really aren’t, and, to throw in one more to end this crazy thing, shaving.

Right, so there are obviously a lot of things that annoy me, and, of course, more personal things I didn’t add to the list. But who cares? Let’s hear about something that annoys you! Post it in the comments below, and thanks for stopping by!

Komplex Sinplicities Character Interviews

Hi and hello! Today, I have with me a few special guests to speak with from my book, Komplex Sinplicities. Let’s see, we have with us Aldwin, from The Game, Carly, from No More Apart, Stephen, from The Unwelcomed Guest, and Amberly, from The Cereal Thief. Let’s get started!

KR: Ok! So, in no particular order, let’s start with Carly. Hello, Carly!

Carly: Hi! How are you?

KR: I’m good! I’m good! Welcome! And thank you for joining us today!

Carly: Thank you! Glad to be here!

KR: No problem! So, uh, in the story, No More Apart, you played a wife who had a beautiful life ahead of her and was brutally murdered.

Carly: Yep.

Me: Wanna tell us how you felt about playing that part?

Carly: Well, you wrote it, of course, but it was actually pretty intense! Robert (no offense, Robert!) is a scary looking guy. So when he came after me to do the rape thing, most of that, from me, wasn’t acting. It was for real!

KR: Well, you weren’t suppose to know what was about to happen. We needed that raw emotion for the readers, ya know?

Carly: *chuckles* Yeah, but you could have written me a heads up! That guy is spooky as hell! I thought I was going to have a frick’n heart attack!

KR: Yeah, except you were horrifically mutilated . . . .

Carly: Erm, yes. I was.

KR: Sorry. Just kidding. Well, I feel like you played the role very well. It was a graphic scene between you and Robert!

Carly: Oh, god, no kidding! And poor Johnny getting all smashed up and everything!

KR: The poor guy. *chuckles* He’s a good guy, but who cares, right?

Carly: O-o-oh ho ho ho you’re so mean!

KR: *laughs*

Carly: Harsh, but it is true! At least he didn’t have a guy’s head inside his body! *chuckles*

KR: The joys of being a writer. *laughs* Thanks, Carly! It’s been a pleasure. Next up? Aldwin! Get in here, hero! Aldwin from The Game, everybody!

Aldwin: That would be me, yes. Thank you.

KR: Whatever. So! Quite a show there with the suicide club thing.

Aldwin: I wouldn’t exactly call it a “club”.

KR: No, you wouldn’t. But I would. And I did!

Aldwin: Unfortunately.

KR: So, Aldwin, what did you think of the part I wrote for you?

Aldwin: Well, since you asked, I think . . .

KR: And where did you find these suicidal club members? How did you get a group of people together . . . that all wanted to . . . kill yourselves?

Aldwin: Um, it’s called fiction. It wasn’t real, Kyran.

KR: Yes, it was. Fiction, I mean.

Aldwin: It was a funny story though.

KR: That happens to be my opinion, also! Wow! We have so much in common!

Aldwin: No, I don’t . . .

KR: Thank you Aldwin! It was great having you here so I could waste your time!

Aldwin: Wasting the readers’ time . . . .

KR: Oh, yeah? You want to bring that attitude to the table? You just wait until after this interview, and see how I kill you off this time! *clears throat* Right! So! Let’s all give a big round of applause to our next guest, Stephen!

Stephen: Hey, Kyran!

KR: Hey, Stephen! How’s that trigger finger?

Stephen: *chuckles* Well, it’s better now! But you damn near broke it when you had me use that pistol as a damn carpenter’s mallet!

KR: Anyway, Stephen, that role in The Unwelcomed Guest was pretty twisted!

Stephen: Yes, it was rather sick, really.

KR: Yeah, disturbing! So, tell us, how hard was it for you to play that role? I mean, what was your method?

Stephen: I didn’t have a certain method or anything. It was more like me just knowing none of it was real and just moving forward with the scene.

KR: If you had a choice, how would you have written the story differently?

Stephen: Oh! Wow! The author asking the character in his story how they would write the story?

KR/Stephen: *both laugh*

KR: Well, just throw out an idea. Anything!

Stephen: Ok, well, I think I would had made it more clear, in a hinted sort of way, that the family’s house I went to wasn’t my actual family, you know?

KR: But then the ending would’ve been spoiled for the readers!

Stephen: Well, you asked. *chuckles*

KR: Ha! Ha! Yes I did. Thank you, Stephen. Our last guest played more of a supporting role, but she was fantastic nonetheless! Let’s bring in Amberly! Hello, Amberly!

Amberly: *smiling* Hi!

KR: Amberly, you played an annoyed older sister who was just . . . bored with life, bored with the world, bored with . . .

Amberly:  Bored with being held hostage!

KR: Indeed! Yes! Like you get held hostage every other day or something.

Amberly: *laughs*

KR: You played the part good, I think, but you don’t seem like the annoyed type?

Amberly: *more laughing* No, I’m not, but it seems to be my thing, so I just go along with it. I’m actually a happy-go-lucky sort of chick.

KR: Yeah, I get that from you! So, tell us, what did you like most about the story?

Amberly: Oh, gosh! What did I not like? I absolutely loved Brynn! She kept me rolling! Like, I mean, how many times did you have to stop typing because the story fell apart because of her?

KR: *laughs* She was a hoot, for sure!

Amberly: But, seriously, I also liked the other characters, too. And the names you came up with for those cereals? OMG! *laughs*

KR: Oh, the cereals! *laughs* Did you ever eat any of them?

Amberly: No! But I so-o-o wanted to try them!

KR: To be honest? So did I! *chuckles* So, thank you, Amberly! It was a pleasure having you in my book! Maybe we can do a part two to the story in the future?

Amberly: I would very much like to do a sequel! And thank you, too!

KR: You’re most welcome! So, that’s all the time we have today. I’d like to thank you for visiting my website. I hope, if you have read Komplex Sinplicities, that you have enjoyed it, and, if not, then you can go here to grab a copy for yourself.

I’d like to hear from you guys, so drop me a line! I may not be able to reply to all of them, but I will certainly read them. And as always, have an awesome day!

*slaps back of hand* Blog Post Idea Generator

Bad! BAD boy! …or girl! BAD I say!

So what is all of this about, you ask? Well, I came across a blog post generator, and, just for kicks, I thought I’d try it out. It’s by HubSpot, and you can find the link to this generator here.

You may already be familiar with this. I don’t know. I’m not brand spanking new at blog posts, but I am fairly new at it. And I have heard/read about blog post generators before and said to myself:

Se-e-elfLet’s go try one and see what it comes up with!

So I did! And here is how this particular one works. It’s pretty cool, actually, and good for a laugh if for nothing else. Alright. Moving on…

When you pull up the site, you’re going to see there are three (3) blocks for you to enter a noun into. Think of any 3 (three) random nouns, or something perhaps that relates to one another (preferably related to your blog), and hit the “GIVE ME BLOG TOPICS!” button.

Here are the nouns, the THREE words describing a person, place, or thing (or idea) that I thought of. And don’t ask me “why” I chose these three particular words. Because I don’t have an answer for that.

Anyway, the resulted number of 5 minus (or, take away) 2 is the number of words I put in, and they were:

  1. Airplane
  2. Chocolate
  3. Vagina

After typing in my noun choices, I hit the button, and then, like magic, the generator spat out five topics (a weeks worth of things to talk about) just like that. Want to know what it gave me? Well, here are the results:

  1. 7 Things About Chocolate Your Boss Wants To Know (That’s just too funny! If anyone writes a blog post about this come back and let me know.)
  2. How To Solve The Biggest Problems With Airplane (I’m not sure if they are talking about the mode of transportation or the movie here. Hmmm…)
  3. 10 Signs You Should Invest In Vagina (I should probably leave this one alone. Or maybe write a post on it? What are your thoughts? Tell me in the comments below!)
  4. 20 Myths About Chocolate (This could actually be a blog post. In fact, I think I may have seen it somewhere before.)
  5. Why We Love Airplane (And You Should, Too!) (Yeah, I think they’re referring to the movie; of which I haven’t seen. That’s totally taking my noun out of context!)

Pretty cool, huh? That was fun! And funny! Ok, one more time just for giggles. Let’s take three more words and see what it comes up with. Let’s use the words:

  1. Penis (JUST to be fair, guys!)
  2. Wombat (Because I just love saying the word wombat.)
  3. Potato (Why not?)

Ok. Here we go! Let’s see what the blog post generator from HubSpot comes up with!And the results are (drum roll, please!):

20 Myths About Penis (I can only imagine what some of you are probably saying right now. You’re probably laughing, too! Alright. Back on subject…)

15 Best Blogs To Follow About Wombat (Is there even ONE blog about wombat? Please! Somebody tell me!)

Why We Love Potato (And You Should, Too!) (Yeah, I can already see how this is going to be repetitive. But it’s still cool, nonetheless!)

10 Things Your Competitors Can Teach You About Penis (Guys, I promise you I am not making this up! I think I’ll leave that one where it stands.)

The History Of Wombat (Sounds like the History and Discovery channels got together and made a documentary about the poor little wombat.)

Okay! So, there ya have it! A fun, and possibly helpful, blog post generator. All thanks to our friends over at HubSpot.com.

I hope you have enjoyed this post! If so, leave a comment and check out the T-Shirts that I went through the trouble to make JUST for you guys!

Thank you for visiting! And until next time, as always, shave a donkey!

25 “What If” Questions List

From time to time, we all have those random “What if” questions that pop into our heads. Well, I can assure you, I’m no different!

I thought I’d post a few just for fun. Enjoy! What If

  1. What if, instead of making the sounds animals normally make, they say the name of what their species is known by in the language of the country in which they live?
  2. What if you had a pen that would allow you to write in whatever you wanted it to? Like, one minute it could write in ink or paint, then in graphite, then perhaps in blood or crayon.
  3. What if our planet was as big as Jupiter? Or bigger? Or as small and icy as Pluto?
  4. What if we lived underground without the knowledge or concept of what light was?
  5. What if hair and grass had feelings and voices?
  6. What if we didn’t have to breathe?
  7. What if one day you woke up or came home from work to find the characters from your favorite movie or book you wrote/read all in your house? Some playing cards or eating at the table, one watching television, one washing dishes in an apron, another attempting to vacuum the floor, and so on.
  8. What if you woke up and it was yesterday? Or last week? Or last year?
  9. What if you woke up one day and you were some one else? Or some thing else?
  10. What if nothing or no one looked as they do now?
  11. What if we were as tall as ants or as big as fabled giants?
  12. What if certain things we take for granted were never invented? Some examples are: cell phones, microwave ovens, springs, toilet paper, milk chocolate, fast food restaurants, the domestication of animals, concrete, fermented alcohol, and written language.
  13. What if we could communicate with animals like we humans do with each other? Mind Blown
  14. What if everyone on the planet was a single race, a single sex, and spoke a single language and, perhaps, even looked all the same? Your wheels are turning, aren’t they? *evil laugh*
  15. What if we communicated telepathically and could see and hear each other’s thoughts?
  16. What if we weren’t the dominate species?
  17. What if we were invaded by hostile aliens or the zombie apocalypse happened?
  18. What if there were no hot and cold temperatures outside; everyday was the same level of comfortable to everybody? How would that work for us with fire and ice and cooking/refrigerating food?
  19. What if we didn’t know any better than to be nudists?
  20. What if there was world peace with no one understanding the very concept of violence?
  21. What if humor did not exist nor the concept of having fun?
  22. What if we lived in a society that didn’t have to use money and/or fossil fuels?
  23. What if we could naturally fly; with or without wings?
  24. What if everyone only lived for the day they were currently living – not caring about the past nor planning for the future?
  25. What if life as you know it was just…different…in every way?

The Tardigrade

One of my most favorite creatures, if not the most favorite, has to be the adorable and fascinating Tardigrade; also called a Water Bear.

Or, as it’s also known by, the Moss Piglet; due to the fact they are found in moss. Obviously.

So what in the world am I talking about?  Well, I’ll tell ya.

Say hello to Mr. Water Bear!

Moss Piglet

 

Here’s a short video to tell you more about these awesome little dudes:

See what I mean? These squishy little guys are awesome! How can you not love Tardigrades? And, yes, I know I keep capitalizing the names, but these fellas are the superheros of the animal kingdom! So why not?

150 Of The Least Used Words Index

Word Index

 

I got to thinking about what words in the English language we (Americans) probably use the least. So, with curiosity running rampant, I browsed the web and compiled an index of sorts.
