Thursday 13 :: Things That Make Me Go Hmmm...

JENNA BAYLEY-BURKE
Currently: I'm trying to work while the baby does the Jumperoo...and hoping the boys don't notice Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is on...and STILL reworking the partial of the lawyers book...
Mood: Hopeful the new year will bring good things

  1. Celebutants. Why?

  2. The economy. We need to get 30 mom's who saved all year to get the kids a Wii for the holidays in a room with these CEO's and explain budgeting to them.

  3. Tanning beds. Just spray tan, people. It's not worth the risk to 'earn' your tan. Buy it like the celbrities do

  4. Annoying phrases. "I personally..." think you should stop being redundant. "With all due respect" means you're about to be rude.

  5. Why people sign up for reality television. They know they have to eat bugs. It's on every freaking show. Why feign surprise?

  6. What happened to the B Drive on our computers? Don't you wonder what's in it? Probably cookies.

  7. Has anyone ever seen the alphabet song and twinkle twinkle little star in a room at the same time? I think not!

  8. Pirates. Only sexy in fiction.

  9. Slept like a baby. Let me tell you folks...babies don't sleep much!

  10. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube...I have social networking exhaustion. I can't do it anymore.

  11. Hugh Grant. Benicio del Torro. There are some 'sexy' men that have the opposite effect on me.

  12. Commando. I'd bet good money every commando is wearing underpants right now.

  13. The End. When you read, it's the end. When you write, it means it's time to edit. And revise. And rework. Then flesh out.....yeah....





Jenna is celebrating the holidays with a sweet holiday story, free to her readers! It's all about what happens when love comes knocking at your door. Check out Jenna’s website, or blog.

I'm with you all the way on this... Especially the whole concept of "Celebutants". What is that all about?

Fun list!

Happy TT!

Stephanie said...

Yep ... celebutants. I hear ya. Ugh. *HUGS*

Gwen Hayes said...

LOL@commando. I always wondered about that.

Delle Jacobs said...

Yaoza, Jenna! I'm with you on every single one of those! Especially the celebutants, the pirates (who I love in fiction only), the... okay, all of them.

Annoying phrases. The one that makes me curl my lip is "I don't mean to offend anyone but..."

That clearly means offense is coming, only you're not allowed to take offense because the speaker has already excused herself. Nope, offensiveness is still offensive.

Heather said...

Excellent post, Jenna! The celebutants and reality shows I wish would disappear are too numerous to count. Oh, and one of those annoying phrases that makes me cringe? "The fact of the matter is..." Ugh!

Oh, the B drive is the old-old floppy drive. But you all are too young to remember that...

Minnette Meador said...

Yep...that damned B drive...I've wondered for 25 years! Wonderful post - ROTFLMAO :)

Commando. I'd bet good money every commando is wearing underpants right now.

Bwa-ha. I volunteer to lead the expedition to discover the truth, once and for all! Heck, throw the Scottsmen in there too!

Lisa Hendrix said...

Jenna -- As usual, you nailed it. All.

I think you should send these in to Letterman. They are a lot funnier. Of course, without your delivery, I don't know if he could handle it. :)
