Ten sizes too small

In honor of it being Grinch week on Holidalies, here is a list of things which I do not understand, and have no desire to ever understand, presented in no particular order:

  • Nyan cat – nope, sorry, not funny, not cute.
  • Piano cat – also not funny, or cute. Mainly I feel sorry for the cat.
  • The wearing of Ugg boots with leggings – Idiotic. I don’t care how comfortable they are. Also, unless you can measure your age in one single digit (hint  – that means you are under the age of 10), leggings are NOT PANTS.
  • Pinterest – I tried. Yes, really. Annoyed the crap out of me. A sheet of pretty pictures is not an organizational strategy my brain likes. I’m happy it works for the rest of you, but if you ‘Pin’ something, do not expect that I will ever see it because…just…no.
  • The current ‘paleo’ diet craze (that has nothing whatsoever to do with how they ate things back then, according to people who actually *study* that era). I find it especially annoying because we all know that the people who are the most rabid about it are only going to go leaping off into the next diet craze as soon as that one pops up.
  • Kale chips – they are an abomination unto the tastebuds (actually kale in general is a highly overrated food)

‘Tis the season for Holidailies.

(note – we’re messing with the theme over here, so things might look a bit weird for a while until we get it all sorted out. And by ‘we’, I mean Richard who is doing the bulk of the code poking, while i peer over his shoulder and offer ‘helpful’ suggestions like ‘hey, how come it’s doing that? can’t you fix it?’


  • I totally agree with all of this! I even have a category on my blog called “PUYGP”, which contains both “Pull Up Your Goddamn Pants” and “Tights Are Not Pants” photos.

  • I’m pretty sure I don’t want to find out what kale chips taste like!

    I’ve never gotten the hang of using Pinterest as social media. I tend to use it as a visual bookmarking service, so pretty much anything informational/non-visual that I want to bookmark goes to my Diigo account, and things that I’m more likely to remember as a picture than words (a particular sewing pattern or what have you) get thrown onto a Pinterest board. It hardly ever occurs to me to look at the feed of other people’s pins (though ever since I cut down what I was following to individual boards rather than all boards for any given person, my feed does tend to have things in it that are interesting when I do remember to look.)
