  1. Love that list. I agree on almost everything but I do love artichokes. I think I will steal this idea!

    1. You totally should! Also I tagged you for the Book Blogger Test post - I know you're not a book blogger, per se, but you're a blogger and a book person, so I think that qualifies you!

  2. #95 LOL I hate that too especially when it's cold.
    Great list by the way. Here's my post.
    Have a good wee.

    1. Right? And it happens always right at the moment when you're finally warm and comfortable. Then it takes an hour to get back there again!

  3. Have I told you lately, I love you? Cause I totally do.

    Also, baby pink & crocs...*gag*

    1. Aw, I totally love you too. And I am in agreement. Here's a terrifying thought - baby pink crocs. Are you hiding under your desk now because the world is a very scary place?

  4. Oh my goodness, Crocs! They are so hideous! Cleaning is something I hate too, there's quite a few here I agree here!

    1. I sometimes wish I were one of those people who cleans when I'm stressed, because then my house would be spotless, but unfortunately I'm one of those people who just watches a lot of TV or reads a book and pretends responsibilities don't exist.

  5. The Jersey Shore shout out stings a little bit. The series finale was a tear jerker, whatever. But I approve of the rest of this list. I approve of making a list of things you hate in general. Keep up the good hating.

    1. Haha! No judgement, it's just not my thing. That said, I didn't even finish one episode because when I tried I could feel my brain cells dying which was rather distracting. ;) You can feel free to judge me for my repeated watchings of Bridget Jones and the fact that I own Uggs (yes, I read your about me section) if that makes you feel any better. I also give high fives occasionally, I'm a fan of peanut butter and I do love chocolate. I REALLY love chocolate and peanut butter together. And don't you worry, I excel at hating.

    2. I'm sure we can set aside our differences. I know that I'm the minority when it comes to the things like chocolate and peanut butter. Everyone makes sure to let me know that something is wrong with me in that sense haha. Same goes for Jersey Shore, though.

      Delete
    3. I feel the same way about Jersey Shore and weird food aversions as I do about religion. I'm cool with whatever, just don't try to make me agree with you (or watch it with you) and we're good. (Also I have been known to watch arguably worse TV, so glass houses and all that.)
