My other favorite forum has a "Today I love" and a "Today I hate" thread. Good for just posting a random rant or woot when something's either getting your goat or going your way.

My start: I hate Queries. They are an invention of the devil, designed to induce violence in even the most even-tempered of us. I don't know what foul-headed curmudgeon thought they'd be a good idea, but he/she should be beaten with brickbats.

All day long, I hated that tourists hate heat indexes of 102. Tough crowd.

08-19-2014, 05:51 PM
Today I hate headaches. They make it really tough to get anything done, or at least get anything done well.

08-19-2014, 08:54 PM
I hate hate and love love. (I'm a philosopher, what can I say?)

08-19-2014, 09:04 PM
Today, I hate that Microsoft Access and Oracle do not want to play nice.

08-19-2014, 09:07 PM
Today I hate the anticipation of getting a lecture from my boss for something he-and only he-can do but claims it's my responsibility! >:O

Today, I hate sinus congestion.

Also, I hate that the dog I'm babysitting won't take her pills in the manner she has always readily taken them at home...

Today, I hate sinus congestion.

DANG! ^ Me too. :flag:

08-20-2014, 12:17 AM
being sick. ALL. THE. DAMN. TIME.

08-20-2014, 01:45 AM
Today I hate that Mr. Maryn refuses to buy most things online, where the selection is huge, and insists on seeing and touching things before he buys them, from lamps to shoes to books. It severely limits his options.

Maryn, different

Today i hate...couples.
if i see one more lip locked, hand holding, matching shirt couple i will push them down a set of stairs.. kidding of course.. but they are making me very annoyed..lol

08-20-2014, 03:30 AM
Today I hate doing stuff that makes my back hurt, and finding out it makes my back hurt after already having done it.

And d.des, push one down for me too while you're at it, will ya? :e2teeth:

08-20-2014, 03:36 AM
Today I hate August. I hate the humid weather, the pollen, the sinus congestion and drainage...

OTOH I love the fact that I can work Lavern's "Things You Love/Hate About..." into this post.

Hiya, Vernie!:tongue

Today I HATE the heat and humidity!

08-20-2014, 06:37 AM
Today I hate ants. I resprained my wrist last night when squirting them with 32 oz of Windex. They are dead so far!

08-20-2014, 10:30 AM
Today I hate dating.
I wish I was married!

Ants... we've been besieged this week. It's so difficult to get rid of them once they've come around.

Today I hate that I have to shave. I wish I was brave enough to get my face waxed! (-; GOD! I hate shaving and I hate facial hair.

:Jaw: (Runs screaming from the room!)

that was a bit harsh, wasn't it. Maybe female hormones? Or electrolysis?

08-20-2014, 11:41 PM
Going to the dentist. I had to have a tooth extracted today. It was a pre-molar so it could have been worse. But still.

08-21-2014, 01:50 AM
The smell coming from my garbage can, with a week's worth of trash except for what can be recycled. Man, rotting meat and fish stink!

Maryn, who can still smell it indoors

Today I hate that I finished editing my first MS and still its word count is monolithic. Son of a...

08-21-2014, 12:36 PM
My phone taking a peek into my calendar, spotting that I have an appointment somewhere else and then beeping at me to say it's time to leave.

Or knowing that I've just googled a restaurant and asking me if I want directions to get there.

Stop stalking me! You are supposed to be an appliance, not my navigator. This Maverick does not need a Goose, okay?

08-21-2014, 06:14 PM
that last hour or two before a job interview....

Turns out I am an excellent bullshitter, but a terrible sit-and-wait-er

08-21-2014, 09:42 PM
Today (all days) I hate institutional racism and police brutality. What's happening in Ferguson is breaking my heart.

08-21-2014, 09:44 PM
Today I hate pedophiles. I hate them everyday, but today another survivor has lost their battle. Childhood sexual abuse took another victim. I hate that.

08-21-2014, 10:01 PM
That I can't eat and drink any damned thing I want and still be healthy. (Or slim.) Seriously, I haven't had French fries in at least a year.

Maryn, knowing everyone's troubles should be so serious

oH, GOD!!!!!!!!!!! I know. I'm going mad. I let myself go for the last 2 years. Ballooned up to 229lbs! I am now at about 180 and am dying to get back to my 30 year regular weight of 174ish. BUT...I miss all the stuff I ate during those two years when I tried to kill myself with food! ACK!

08-22-2014, 05:07 AM
Not sleeping. I've barely slept in 4 nights, even though I took a sleeping aid on 2 of those nights. And I'm sick, too.
My god, I feel like shit and I'm supposed to go on holidays in 9 days.

But yeah, I really just hate not sleeping.

10-22-2014, 12:14 AM
Today I hate when people say "cinnabomb". It's Cinnabon!!

People who tailgate.

I usually drive 5 over. If you tailgate me, I will drop down to the speed limit. If you continue to tailgate me, I will suddenly slow to a crawl.

Because I hate you!

10-22-2014, 12:41 AM

*looks around*
what? oh yea, right....
like i need to list out a reason!

12-02-2015, 05:12 AM
Today I hate my neighbours barking dogs. He's got a puppy mill going, and the poor little thing are not treated right. Wish I could do something about it, but the Sheriff doesn't give a hoot, and there is no Animal Police or rescue to contact in this area. In short, Today I hate my neighbour for being a cruel So and So.

Today I hate the fact that I'm craving ciggies.

12-02-2015, 08:10 AM
Today I hate that I'm so far behind on my Xmas ornaments. And I hate that they're looking like crud, though that's a usual phase in ornament creation, usually fixed by glitter. Lots and lots of glitter. (Few things hide surface defects like a nice coat of glitter...)

And I hate that I totally forgot to get my monthly book review site update posted yesterday. (Just did that now.) I'm 99% sure the only person who knows its there is me, but still...

I also hate that I've had to put writing and revisions on the back burner because of holiday Stuff crunching my time and sapping my creative energy.

12-16-2015, 05:58 PM
I hate the fact that I have to do laundry before I can get dressed today because I was too lazy to do it yesterday.

12-16-2015, 06:08 PM
Talking heads on TV. Interrupting and being louder than the other person doesn't make you right.

Talking heads on TV. Interrupting and being louder than the other person doesn't YES IT DOES!

12-16-2015, 09:35 PM
I hate whoever is not picking up the doggie bombs their mutt is leaving on the trail where my wife and I walk our dog. We bring extra bags every time we walk it these days. If I ever find out who it is, they're going to find a little surprise bundle on their doorstep :evil.

12-16-2015, 10:12 PM
I hate it's another feckin' potluck at work. I have a long, ugly, protracted history with these things and I try to avoid them at all costs. It's damned if I do and damned if I don't.

12-18-2015, 01:50 AM
Today I hate the weather. Overcast until afternoon, then it started to rain. It's unseasonably warm for the time of year, but the dreariness puts me in a dire mood.

Today I hate my bosses.
But lately I've been hating them every day...

12-19-2015, 05:45 PM
Today I hate the conversation with the 'friend' I was chatting with online earlier who got offended when I asked him to stop dropping N-bombs in every other sentence. No dude, asking you to calm it down does not make me a SJW, nor am I, a "grown ass woman" incapable of handling what some guy says over the internet. As a grown ass man you should have been out of the using profanity for shock value stage over a decade ago. It doesn't make you cool, it makes you a tool, especially when you use the "well my friends use it all the time" defense. Really? :rolleyes

And I haven't even had my damn coffee yet. Today is just turning out fantastic.

Today, I hate darn adult responsibilities -- paying bills, cleaning my house, shopping.

12-19-2015, 07:00 PM
I hate this damn cold.

I hate Comcast for what they've done to my internet connection and my wi-fi. I hate Comcast for what they've done to my television. Upgrades, they call them. UPGRADES?:rant:

I hate that I live in a place where Warriors games are blacked out!!!!!!!!!!

I have more on my list, but I'll stop here. I'm upsetting myself. :greenie
