Peeve This: The Summer Edition

pet peeves

surprise b2surprise b3Hey. Remember that time I took a break for about a month and it was simply unacceptable?

Well, let’s not even discuss the highest level of unacceptable it is that the fact of my last real post was a little over THREE MONTHS AGO.

THREE. DAMN. MONTHS. That’s 90+ days. Even Michael Jackson released an album in the midst of my hiatus.

changes subjectThe only good thing is that there is lots to catch up on, lots to discuss and yes, lots to be peeved about.

Welcome to Peeve This: The Summer Edition.


In the midst of my absence, I quickly made my exit out of the 27 Club and turned one year older. And while I feel like every year being closer to 30 I should feel on the brinks of an emotional breakdown–

im oldI’m sadly actually embracing the more subtle lifestyle.

i like sweatpants and staying home Deep down under the sweatpants, the over indulgence of cookie dough ice cream, and 10pm couch naps between watching Space Jam and Golden Girls while friends are out at the bar I finding it bothering that I’m not bothered. Sunday Fundays come and go and I sip one beer and slowly count down when I can go and be a lame again or do something more productive versus contributing to hating myself in 24 hours.
So this is that “growing up” folks keep talking about.


By now you’ve either seen or heard of Iggy Azaela. If somehow you haven’t, the Australian born rapper has shot to a whole new level of super-stardom with her hit song, Fancy. It’s fun, it’s catchy, that video won all the points for paying tribute to Clueless A.K.A one of the greatest films of all time, and now unfortunately it’s entirely over played and needs to be retired along with the others this year, AKA Happy.


Accept it. Selfies aren’t going away anytime soon. Or if ever.  Just let it happen and embrace them.

feeling like i just buried my 3rd husbandBut one trend I just don’t get is the multiple photos of the same damn pose. You’ve seen them.

Did you change shoes? Switch weaves? Get new calf implants?? WHY do we need multiple photos of you in the EXACT same pose, angle, outfit and situation. You’re cute girl, we loved you the first time.

 This almost gets an individual post on it’s own. And honestly still may. Since we all can’t be blessed with a private work office let’s make it clear that everyone is not a morning person, if you need an oxygen tank and still insist on coming into the work place please make it a quiet one, it’s rude to judge what someone else is eating,  speakerphone wisely, and no we don’t always really want to hear about your weekend or department gossip.

this isnt barney and friends

If you guys happen to see Godzilla trolling deep up in the streets, tell him I want my $10.50 back immediately.

I don’t understand how 21 years later Jurassic Park still rises up as one of the greatest creature films of all time and still kicks the ass of almost every new age film released today. It’s 2014, y’all can get better cinematography and creatures that just don’t pop up for a span of only 5 seconds or when the lights have dimmed out.

Then of course with every season….there’s the weather.

Stay cool, literally, and happy Summer everyone!

    I like posts that nearly give me seizures from the .gifs. They’re my favorite. I never heard of that dude from Australia, probably because I’m old. Beyonce is incredibly beautiful and you’re totally not old. You’re in your athletic prime right now, actually. Use that however you want, lol.
