pent up rage or braggadocio? which do you prefer?

Perhaps I've been a bit too cooped up with all the sick kids in our house over the last few weeks or maybe it's because of the child who randomly started waking us up at night or maybe it's because I stepped on the scale yesterday for the first time in weeks....
Whatever it is, I'm just bubbling over with brewing animosity tonight and can't wait to rant about totally random and pointless stuff.  Grrrr.  Watch me burst forth with rage. 

1.  Internet Explorer---I have deep seated loathing passion for internet explorer and hope that one day it implodes on itself.  Yay for Mozilla Firefox!  Boo for Internet Explorer! 

2.  Beef--It doesn't matter what cut it is, who prepared it, or how many times I try it....I want to like it, but am disappointed every time I try it.  My poor, poor family now considers it the forbidden fruit of foods and pretty much obsesses about how infrequently I serve it to them.  Stupid beef! 

3.  People who block entrances to side streets and businesses when they're backed up in traffic anyway and couldn't go anywhere if they tried.   I consider anyone who can't just stop a few feet back and let people in and out of the side streets as inconsiderate, obnoxious, oblivious, and should have their drivers' licenses revoked.  LEARN HOW to DRIVE PEOPLE!!!!!!

4.  Movies that are supposed to be for kids and are filled with inappropriate innuendos and adult humor.  Boo for "Diary of a Wimpy Kid!" Dumbest waste of time...ever!   

5.  The IRS.  Penalizing an all volunteer organization at an elementary school PTA with a $5000 fine for submitting their tax return late is lame, lame, LAME!!!!!!!  Stupid piece of overblown crappy government entity! 

So, what makes your blood boil?  Feel free to add your own rant into the comments (as long as it's not directed at me, because otherwise I'd have to photoshop a picture of you with horns growing out of your earwaxy ears and send it to the National Enquirer. ) 

And now that I have all that out of my system, we'll return to cute picture collages and my normal braggadocio posting. 

Have a nice day.

Did you really mean five thousand dollars? For a late tax return? It is not April 15th yet or does it have to be turned in earlier? With at least 28,000 new employees the IRS will only get worse. Get rid of the IRS.

I also despise movies (and books) that are supposed to be for kids that have inappropriate and indecent stuff thrown in. Are they deliberately trying to corrupt children?

I agree with #1. I have Mozilla too and I like it so much better than Internet Explorer. I've tried using Internet Explorer to see if it can redeem itself from the many times of use where I end up frustrated but I always end up mad with it in the end. I don't like it at all.

I don't like tailgaters when I'm driving. Yes I may be going exactly the speed limit or just a little over, but you don't need to be on my bumper. In fact it makes me want to go slower when you are right on my bumper.

OK I think that's all I have to say.

Snow. And cold. But mostly just the doggone, stinkin' cold.

Also, beef. I'd have to agree with you there. We rarely at it before and now we're eating it pretty much never because I'm on a mission to cook more of a plant-based diet. Not vegetarian, just more plants, less meat. To hear the kids tell it, we've launched into some kind of vegan wasteland.

Fun post, I might have to do one of these. :)

After reading our book group selection for this month you will feel even better about your #2

I couldn't agree more with #4!
