So the internet has been on a rampage for various reasons. It feels like nothing happens - and then everything is so busy and crazy you can't hardly contain the information overload. So here's some of my pet peeves to get the rant going:
- The word decimate. It originated as a term meaning "to reduce by one tenth" in reference to Roman armies. Nowadays, people use it to mean "obliterate" or to destroy a lot of something. It's made it into the common vernacular as meaning "to destroy something in large numbers", and many people miss out on a whole vocabulary of words that could mean to destroy something.
- "I'm so angry at [blank] - I'm moving to Canada" Good luck with that. Why not actually do something - like vote - to make your own country more palatable.
- Commercials that include blatant lies to consumers, example: HFCS "Sugar is sugar, your body doesn't know the difference" - Your body does know a difference. Remember - Vote with Your Wallet.
- It's 110F in my backyard. This isn't a pet peeve, just an annoying fact.
- Hubby (or anybody) doing something I need to do without me asking. It's like an unexpected weight falling off my shoulders.
- Companies who utilize twitter to the best advantage. Remember the @ is a powerful thing if you want something done. Emailing and tweeting may seem overrated, but I've had success with communicating my needs - negative and positive with a number of different companies.
- PostSecret. No matter how rough a week may be, I start my Sunday with PostSecret. *Warning to those who aren't aware of the project, secrets may contain nudity, rude language, or adult concepts.
- Beautiful movie trailers for amazing movies. Seriously guys the Hobbit is going to be so freaking amazing.
- Breaking fashion rules. I like skirts that come to my knee or below. I like visually chopping my leg line with ankle details on shoes. I like wearing things I made. I like challenging my own sense of color perception.
What makes you smile?
