Moaning Meme

I've got a lot of catch-up to do. Tristi tagged me for the Moaning Meme, earlier this week, and I couldn't concentrate to write anything at all and then I couldn't read the screen because my eyes were all puffy (I was so not ready for that cat to die). But, I'm fine to moan, now. We are all fine here. So, here we go . . .

5 people who will be annoyed you tagged them:

Who wouldn't? Lazy alert! I don't want to take the time to think of 5, so anyone who feels like moaning is tagged. I love saying that: "You're all tagged (insert evil laughter).

4 things that should go into room 101 and be removed from the face of the earth:

Violence of all kinds
The Hollywood image of perfection (I am so sick of those perfect, totally fake teeth)
Icky bugs

3 things people do that make you want to shake them violently:

Refuse to take responsibility for their actions (I'm stealing this one from Tristi)
Drive while talking on cell phones
Drink and drive

2 things you find yourself moaning about:

My house. I hate the clutter, the quantity of things that have gone unrepaired, the fact that it's badly insulated, the shape of the rooms . . . I just hate my house.
The neighborhood dogs that are not fenced because we have no leash laws.

1 thing the above answers tell you about yourself:

I need to get off my fat fanny and do something about the darned house instead of moaning about it and I should just go ahead and fork out the money for a fence.

RULES: Link to the original meme at so people know what it's all about! Be as honest as possible, This is about letting people get to know the real you! Try not to insult anyone - unless they really deserve it or are very, very ugly!
Post these rules at the end of every meme!

Anyone feel like moaning?


  1. Looks like we have the unhappy with house moan in common. Ugh.

  2. Wendy,

    Yes, I'm afraid we do. My husband is off patching the biggest holes in the wall (both from plumbing incidents that had to be repaired through the wall), thank goodness. There's so much to be done, it boggles my mind. Ugh is right. LOL

    Freelance Cynic,

    Why, thank you. :)

  3. Thanks for playing! :)

    And I'm putting "Consider This, Senora" on my TBR list. In fact, I think 30% of the books on that list came from you.

  4. Wow, cool, Tristi! I hope you like the 30%!!

  5. I especially relate to the false image of perfection portrayed by Hollywood. Mother Pie ( had a wonderful post a few days ago showing a magazine cover with Faith Hill then underneath was the unretouched photo. So, hello! It's OKAY if we have bag under our eyes because she does, they're just erased. Completely.

  6. Bellezza,

    That is so wild. I think she looks better with the bags under her eyes. It looks like there's something wrong with her face on the Redbook cover, don't you think? Thanks for pointing that out!!
