Oh, gawd, I hate that! Makes me gag just thinking about it.

Reminds me of a story that my father used to tell about his time in the Forces. The camp cook only had access to very few eggs but plenty of access to that awful dried/powdered stuff that remotely resembles an egg-type substance when mixed with water.

Crafty guy, this camp cook.

He'd make up a batch of the powdered eggs and in the concoction he'd put in one complete egg, shell and all.

Then, when the men were eating their breakfast, some of them got a bit of shell. The men thought this was great, since they figured the cook was using real eggs in their scrambled egg breakfast instead of the powdered stuff. Little did they know...

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

My brother in law is a chef. When he works at a restaurant that forces them to use potato pearls, he always scrapes a few real potatoes, whizzes them up and throws them into the mix for the same effect. Funny!

My neighbor who wakes up everyday at 4 a.m. and decides to start mowing his lawn shortly after he wakes.

I REALLY get upset about the people who leave their empty grocery carts in the handicapped parking spaces.
Forgot this one: My stove top is being destroyed by my daughter while she is learning to cook. It's a smooth top and she has made a horrendous ring that I can't get off.Sad

Most of us are so caught up in life that we forget to live it.

How about SITTING NEXT TO MY EX HUSBAND AT THE LAST TWO RUSH CONCERTS I'VE ATTENDED? Makes for a very awkward night. Ergh.

When I hold a door open for someone and they still reach out to touch it while I'm holding it open, as if I would slam it on them or something.

RE: The Pet Peeve
Keep in mind, I'm a bit old fashion. Here is my peeve with the modern youth invading my home.

Q: Hey man how ya doin? (my hand extended willingly)
A: huh? (shakes my hand like a sissy)
Q: How are you doing?
A: auhh (inaudible)
Q: What?
A: huh?
Q: Are you alive?
A: hum I guess

There is a new rule in our home now. No zombies allowed on premises. All visitors must exceed a 25 lb grip for a handshake. All guest shall make eye contact for 7 seconds upon initial greeting. Of course all shall be subject to pat search and alco-sensor tests as well. Dlic/ncic and homeland security file checks are subject upon case by case basisBig Grin
