Catch-Up Memes . . . 

Better late than never, right?

This week's Ten On Tuesday meme:
10 Things That People Do That Annoy You
(in no particular order) People who are guilty of the following:
  1.   Talking loudly on cellphones in public places (restaurants, grocers, etc.) or quiet places (doctor's offices, etc) - or worse - those danged walkie-talkie type cells, as if we want to hear both sides of the conversation - yelled - like they're twelve years old;
  2.   Not disciplining their bratty kids when they misbehave in public and annoy/physically accost/etc. others around them;
  3.   Not taking crying babies out of crowded rooms, restaurants, churches, movies, etc. when it is disrupting the rest of the people who are trying to do whatever it is they are there to do;
  4.   Cutting into line anywhere - whether on foot or in a car;
  5.   Constantly interrupting - as if what you are saying isn't as important as what they have to say;
  6.   Believing they are always right and never wanting to listen to anyone else's opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. because they already have their minds made up that their way is the only way to go;
  7.   Unloading all of the crappy grunt jobs that they don't want to do with some lame excuse that they don't have time when the real reason is they don't want to have to confront people in situations that are stressful on matters that are volatile, so they pass the buck instead and give someone else the ulcers;
  8.   Say they'll call or come by at a certain time and they're always late - very late by hours, not minutes - or they don't show up/call at all until days later;
  9.   Let their dogs poop on your property instead of walking them around the block and/or cleaning up after them pursuant to City/County and HOA ordinances;
  10.   Sitting at stop lights waiting for them to change to ANOTHER shade of green!

This week's Monday Madness meme:

The Bag Sachel Wallet Meme

1.   Do you use a bag/sachel/wallet?    Yes.     I've been carrying a small black leather Harley-Davidson studded saddlebag-style purse for almost a year (it was a get-well gift when I broke my ankle last year).     But, I just bought a new black leather Harley-Davidson purse on Monday that is a different style and a bit larger than the last, so I have been carrying it for two days now.     I also carry a black leather briefcase, and a black leather camera case.

2.   Do you use the same bag/sachel/wallet everyday or change depending on your outfit?    Unless it is a black-tie, ultra-conservative, gallery opening, etc.-type event, my H-D bag can handle any other everyday occasion and works with most of my other outfits.

3.   What do you carry in your bag/sachel/wallet?    A leather H-D wallet, a leather H-D (joint) checkbook, a leather H-D zipper change-purse, a 2nd (individual) checkbook, a pen, a small notebook, an Alabama Crimson Tide pewter elephant keychain with an assortment of grocer, retail, etc. discount key fob cards, small cosmetic bag, cell phone, PDA, iPod.

4.   Do you check and change the contents of your bag/sachel/wallet before you go anywhere specific or do you take everything everywhere?    I take everything everywhere, unless I'm going to a black-tie event.     In that case, I carry an evening bag with ID, a credit card, cash, lipstick and a compact.

5.   How often do you have a good clean out of your bag/sachel/wallet?    Weekly, to sort and file receipts.

This Author's Profile

♪   I am

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
