Top 5: New Things that Make me Jealous and/or Annoyed

I've done this before, but the world never ceases to create things that make me jealous and/or annoyed, so let's do it again!

Things that Make me Jealous

1. Snow Days - This may come as a surprise to you all, but we never get snowed in here in Southern California. It sucks, man! I want to stock up on food and drinks and sit at home for a few days when I should be working. You people in the rest of the country have all the fun. *hrmpf*

2. Emily Blunt - She's gorgeous and has the cutest boyfriend on the planet. Plus, she's super talented and English. Some people get all the good stuff.

3. Anthony Bourdain - Does anyone in the world have a better job? Do you have any idea how good I would be at traveling the world, being snarky and eating? True calling = missed.

Things that Annoy Me

1. Google Buzz - I totally resent, after successfully avoiding Twitter, that Gmail has essentially forced it upon me...or they did until I figured out how to hide it. +1 Me.

2. Valentine's Day - For the record, it doesn't bug me because I'm single. It bugs me because it's a sham to get people to spend money in February for no really good reason. I'm kinda over all pre-determined gift-giving holidays, actually. If I want to give you a gift, I'll send it to you on May 14th if I want...and you'll like it, damn it!

Sorry. I may have gotten a little carried away.

So what makes you jealous and/or annoyed?

Valentine's Day is pissing me off because of the updates that some people keep giving on Facebook.

Hence the bitter and jaded tone of my status updates lately.

I am with you, Red! I am not a fan of Valentine's Day, other wise known as Singles Awareness Day! I am, however, a fan of the dicounted chocolate available on Feb. 15th!

Also, we should totally do a show on eating and being snarky TOGETHER! That would be awesome!

For the most part, only school kids get snow days. Businesses tend to stay open. So snow is actually just a PIA. At least in Boston. Maybe DC is different is because they're not used to getting this much.

Oh, and I'm jealous of people with giant trust funds.

I don't even know what the hell Google Buzz is yet, but I know it's annoying the shit out of me. I want to turn it off too! I don't need another way for people to touch me.

Initially I was inclined to agree with you about Anthony Bourdain having the best job in the world. But he DOES have to go to shitholes and eat things that aren't even food. I'm okay with going to shitholes as long as I can pack a lunch. Therefore, Samantha Brown has the best job in the world. And looks much cuter in capri pants.

I am jealous of people whose parents grew up in this country and understand the significance of Valentine's Day. I don't think I've ever gotten a v-day card/gift/flowers from my mom =( On the other hand, I've been pretty lucky in the boyfriend department, so I guess it evens out =)

Oh, and I'm also jealous of people who have money. I would make a FANTASTIC rich person.

OMG. You must tell me right now how to hide that Buzz shit. Please.

Under Settings in Gmail, click Labels and it will give you the option to hide Buzz.
