Things that still suck

Last I checked, and in no particular order:

*Jessica Simpson (and, indeed, her ilk)
*Mesclun Greens
*First day back at work after a 3-day weekend
*Bode Miller
*Flared trousers
*Art Rock
*What currently passes as "country music" on the radio
*Rent increases
*Movies about old cartoons or sitcoms
*Jim Carey
*Reality TV
*Donald Trump
*Doctoral students who can't read directions, hit a deadline, spell, or use correct grammar
*Current women's shoe styles
*College week on "Jeopardy!"
*Hair bands
*Bernie & Phyll commercials (Bostonians will know what I mean. God! Those voices...it's like a rake across a chalk board.)
*Yankee Fans
*The NBA
*Dominoe's Pizza
*Any weird pizza where new places are found to put cheese. Enough, already!
*Brussels sprouts
*Natural disasters
*The Religious Right

Oh, there's more. I just have to get back to work now.

EDIT: By "Hair bands" I don't mean things you use to keep your hair under control and out of your face. I mean those gawdawful bands from the 80's, with big, stupid hair, and whose music was the rough equivalent of aural laxatives. Just diabolically bad. Thanks, Lucy, for pointing out my ambiguity.

Nuh-huh. Hairbands don't suck anymore. Would Peaches and Fifi Geldof be wearing them if they did? I think not.

Hiya Lucy, thanks for stopping by!

Actually, I meant shitty 80's musical bands, the ones with stupid, big hair and who thought they were so "hard," but really were a bunch of nancyboys. I can't even think of any names right now, but you know what I mean...

Perhaps I should edit and clarify that!

Dog owners who let their pets shit all over the sidewalk on the route to school. My biggest fury igniter.

I'm with Kim on the dog crap and people who wear high heels with shorts ought to be whipped with a chain.
Bye, going out to watch football.

Bob's commercials suck, too. Bob and all his random sluts. The weird part is, I totally thought that bad furniture outlet commercials were just a Detroit thing until I moved here. We have Art Van and Gardner-White, but they're just as bad, unfortunately. Although their proprietors generally stay off the air, which is a good thing. I don't need to see "Phyl's" up to her sternum granny pants ever again!

I almost agree 100%... but Brussel Sprouts are great! Did you know that whether you like or dislike them is genetically programmed into you...?

Oh yes! Me just love a good rant... even if it in list form!!

Me totally agree with you 87.5%!!

Doc, me have tried Brussel Sprouts few times and, although me no think they suck, me am not sure if me like them or not. What do that say about me genetically?

Binty - say more about this please. I've been wondering whether my hatred of all things bitter (self excluded, ha, ha) is somehow related to some genetic predisposition or an elevated set of those particular bitter-sensitive taste buds.

Sour, now that I can handle. I eat lemons.

I fail to see what's wrong with art rock.
