Default Annoyed Thoughts...

(Not as strong as "angry", but still...)

For example:
Why are there so few calendars available with an assortment of related photos? I like penguins, but I don't want 12 months of penguins in a row! I like Labrador retrievers, too, but 12 months of the same kind of dog???! It's so hard to just find an "assorted pets" calendar.

I watched a movie on TV last night, and they were using "geometric commercials". The first commercial didn't occur until 32 minutes into the show (to tempt me to start watching it, I guess). Then the next two commercials were 16 minutes apart (stilll reasonable). The next four were 8 minutes apart (annoying), and in the last half hour there must have been eight commercial breaks and they came every 5 minutes! It's a good thing this wasn't a longer movie or it might never have ended.

Or eventually the commercials would be so short and frequent that the screen became a confusing blur. It would be interesting (thought pointless) to observe something like that. Fractal TV!

Our printer says there's a paper jam, but it's lying! There's no paper anywhere in there.

I'm annoyed by that new song "Fergulicious". Not only is the song itself annoying, but what really annoys me is the fact that throughout the song they misspell the word "tasty". Bad spelling annoys me!

Can I safely assume the song is by Fergie, who was the downfall of the B.E.P.?
