Things That Are Annoying Me

Someone put on her crankypants this morning. And that someone is me. So really anything that exists other than my bed, chocolate, and chai tea are annoying me today. More specifically:

Anyone who gets between me and my Starbucks.

Editors who don't have the courtesy to tell you that your op-ed has been dropped even though they told you two months ago that it would be in a particular issue.

The 39% of the United States who still think that Bush is doing a good job.

People who "help" you on a project and then return it half-done. These are same people who remind you---daily---of how busy they are even though they volunteered to help.

My own lack of a spine.

Houseguests. And I know I should be grateful that my friends want to visit me (and I hope a certain someone isn't reading this), but I'm just not a good or gracious hostess. I wish I were.

My normally perfect puppy who decided that her favorite chew toy last night would be my hand. And by "last night," I mean at 1 a.m., 2 a.m., 3 a.m. She also decided that because she was awake most of the night, I should be also.

That I feel guilty about putting my puppy in her crate at 3.15 a.m. so that I could get a couple hours of sleep.

Having to work for a living.

Update: I have to add to the list people who would put children in cages. These people annoy me most of all.
