My Favorite Hates

While driving home from the mall this afternoon I stopped at a red light behind a car that was so ugly it actually made me cringe. The thing is, it was a new car, not some clunker from '83 that was covered in rust. As I sat behind the car, it's styling (or lack there of) actually offended me and got me to thinking about about other things that make me turn up my nose. You know when something just isn't right and you can't help but be a hater?!
Yeah, yeah, most people blog about their favorite things- the shopping, food, clothes, crafts, kids stuff, whatever it is that they enjoy. And I usually like to share about my love for the good stuff too. But this post is dedicated to that which I dislike -  ain't  no rainbows, puppies, snaps or cheers here. 


{Today's first offender: I can't quite put my finger on it, but this "Cadillac" looks like a cross between a tin can, a Pontiac Aztec (the undisputed UGLIEST car of all time) and Robo-Cops' butt...}



{Harem Pants- they were terrible when MC Hammer did 'em. Nothing's changed since. Why would you want to look like you didn't quite make it to the bathroom on time and may have filled your pants??}



{Carrot Top. I've mentioned this before, but this man is Creepy McCreeperson. Blech.}


{Nancy Grace. Could this woman be any MORE annoying? No.
 Her painful drawl, her intensity and quasi-legal speak always make me change the channel now, like right NOW.  No Nancy, we don't know where the missing teen/car-jacker/baby Ashley is right now...but you'll let us know as soon as YOU do.}



{Interpretive Dance. I can't handle the jerky, weird-o choreography of modern interpretive dance. I'm not the only one here right?}



{TMZ. Total trash. Harvey Levin and his band of misfit Pap's run after (mostly) B-list celebs and ask them dumb-ass questions. "What'd you have for lunch today Snoop Dog?"   We don't care. And yet you get sucked in to watching this crapsandwich of a show (like every night, when I'm supposed to be going to bed.)}



{Cluster Diamond Rings. Ugly. Dated. Ugly. Tiny diamonds as a poor excuse for a decent sized one. Men, save your money and delay the engagement until you can afford a solitaire.}


{Celery and Pineapple. I really don't know why, but I can't stand eating either of these. Pineapple is such a great way to completely RUIN a perfectly good ham and cheese pizza.}

Yeah this is a strange and random list of dislikes and maybe I've just sucked the sunshine from your day, but there is something really gratifying about bitching about that which I abhor. Everyone has some things that drives them nutty....let's hear about  your favorite hates!

I agree with pretty much everything you mention!!!And your post really lovely!

Suburban Princess said...

We have a lot of the same hates!
I cant stand celery, cluster rings (ugh a little too WT for me! Have you notice the people who wear them usually wear LOTS of them?)....ugh that dance creeps me out! I can stomach NG for a few minutes - her kids have to hear that all day long!

Rachel said...

Um, I am right there with you on harem pants and Carrot Top. (SERIOUSLY, when did his face turn into THAT????)

The list of things I hate is far too long for a simple comment :) Perhaps I should turn this into a blog post.

This is a great list. TMZ is awful. I don't go to their site or watch their show. I'm glued to Perez Hilton's site even though I can't stand him either. I'm putting together my list now. Watch for it later today.

Connie K said...

Mrs. Prepperoni said...

What a great post! Carrot top is SO creepy. Blech.

Julie (brown eyed belle) said...

Cluster diamond rings??! Hahaha! I had never thought about it, but they drive me a little crazy! And suburban princess is right, people who wear them usually have on several! I'm going to do my own 'hate' list! Brilliant!

Lisa - Fine Sweet Life said...

Wow! Great one!!!....I have to think on this one!!! To be continued...

Honey B. said...

I totally agree with you....EXCEPT for the pineapple and celery...the world would be a sad sad place without pina coladas and Bloody Mary's...and yes its sad that those are the first things I think of when I see them...lol

Holly said...

I hate list...I could totally get onboard with this idea. I agree with it all...except pineapple...I could live on it.

As for the cluster ring...not my fave, but I will be nice because I remember a bunch of engaged girls talking about how ugly gold rings were (I have a gold ring) while they all sported their vintage style platinum rings. I would chalk it up as a trend of the times...BUT if a man is buying it now...he needs to be smacked.

NYCGAL said...

LMAO!! This made me laugh out loud! I agree with you on everything on your hate list. Have you seen the pic of Carrot Top compared to Nicole Kidman? With all her plastic surgery there is quite a resemblance lol!

bananas. said...

i only agree with carrot top but everything else is not on my hate list. more like my don't-really-think-about-it-too-much list.

oh but i do love pineapples. what's wrong with you? ;)

Blair @ Reasonably Swanky said...

I agree with you on each and every one! This is a hilarious post btw.
WTF happned to Carrot Top's face? I saw a show with him on it and he looked like a mix between Opie (from Andy Griffith) and the freaking incredible HULK. Very scary.
And yes interpretive dance...what's the point?

Froso said...

I hate celery too! My mum always puts it in EVERYTHING she cooks, it is irritating.

Tamara Nicole said...

Ha ha awesome post! Def agree with carrot . . . weirdo! Hmmm I don't like acid wash jeans, yuck! Never going back to that fab. Oh yes TMZ is baaaad. Ummmm also . . . I tried to watch Basketball Wives, and hate that show, they're just insecure haters? But guess you can't blame em:-)

Have a great week!

OceanDreams said...

Harem pants are just gross, I second that!

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

That's it.. we can't be friends anymore & if I ever meet Harvey Levin IRL, I'm telling him to harass your blog.. hehehehe.. ;)

Kim's Vanity said...

LOL I just laughed my ass off at these. Nancy Grace is a complete goon, I watch that show for the sole purpose of laughing. Her drawl is atrocious, trying to take any of her legal jargon seriously with that hideous accent is damn near impossible. Her favorite line is "Woulda. Shoulda. Coulda." *insert penetrating gaze at defendant here* ... 'Nuff said!
