friday's random ten annoyances

#1 - rumsfeld. "back off?" you've got to be kidding.
#2 - the pledge drive. i realize its a necessary evil for public radio. and i'm a member. i have been since i was 19. but i've been growing increasingly disenchanted with wbez and npr. there's this INSANE thing about wbez doing away with music next year.  if this is indeed the case i will be doing away with my yearly pledge. also, 11 central ave. is about the most annoying thing i've ever heard. npr pissed me off with the whole bob edwards debacle. and there have definitely been subtle changes to both morning edition and all things considered that i haven't enjoyed. it feels a bit like pandering. so, the pledge drive just fuels these fires.
#3 - this lingering / burgeoning head cold - i'm really not sure what its doing.
#4 - the case of the missing lap top - shawn bought a laptop from someone on ebay with our state tax refund. he received it - after much ado. it was defective. he sent it back and we've yet to hear ANYTHING.
#5 - traffic in the rain. the roads are moist people - use caution but there is NO need to slow down to a CRAWL.
#6 - my amazing new talent - i can hit snooze in my sleep thereby causing shawn & i to have to rush. and shawn really doesn't do well with rushing in the morning.
#7 - netflix. i have once again signed up. i have a queue filled to the brim with horror movies, tv, and music dvds for shawn. we're being good and watching things right away. netflix however seems to be following the mrs. butterworth philosophy of life and taking their own sweet time. oh yeah, and in less than a month a dvd has been lost.
#8 - the lack of free time in the hampton household. i've been wanting to carve my stinkin' pumpkin for two weeks now. no dice.
#9 - lady bugs. they're cute. but not when they are dead, en masse, on my window sill at work.
#10 - i know that there are real tragedies in the world but god damn, would it have killed old navy to put the elbow patches on my new sweater on the actual elbows?

and so we're clear - i don't hate everything. shawn is adorable. and i love my office and its view.

ok, so #11 - who the hell does tom cruise think he is? and when is she going to come to her senses?
