My Favorite Hates

Fabulous! (pasta not included) posted some of her favorite things to hate today. I'm stealing this idea since it's obviously awesome. Here are a few things I love to hate.

1. Heart Necklaces & Red Roses on Valentine's Day

Could you be any less creative?

2. Hummers

They aren't cool anymore now that everyone and their mom can afford one.

3. Unpolished Toenails

If your toenails are going to show, polish them.

4. Putting Family Member's Names On Your Car

Haven't these people watched Dexter? The Trinity Killer will get you.

5. Snot Nosed Kids

If you're going to break all the rules and bring your sick kid out, at least have the decency to wipe his nose.

I don't want you lovely people to think I'm hating on everything today, so I'll end this feature with my current favorite hottie.
I had another Christian Bale dream, so he's been on my mind.

Ain't he pretty?

THANK YOU!! I feel a little more normal now! I HATE unpainted toenails and REFUSE to wear sandals if my nails aren't painted. Some people think its silly, but seriously...unpolished nails GROSS me out! Thanks for letting me know I am not the only one who feels this way! :)

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

I could not agree more about red roses for Valentine's! I told my husband I never, ever want red roses, very cliche and unoriginal! :-)

Julie (brown eyed belle) said...

I hate unpainted toenails too!! And one of my best friends literally loses her mind over it! Thank you for the laugh today :)

Ed said...

I can't ever see your pictures that go along with the posts while I'm at work. Total buzzkill. Like reading a book with every other page torn out.

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

Why you gotta hate on my Tiffany's necklace?? fyi: it was a CHRISTMAS present! ;)
PS. My toes have not been unpolished in like 15 years.

Cathy said...

If my husband EVER buys me anything HEART shaped, he better be prepared to move out. That's all I'm saying.

Well, I'm also saying unpainted toenails are gross.

Annnnnd....Christian Bale is hot.

Stacy said...

OMG!!!!!! I think that all the time about Dexter!!!! Whenever I see those gay family stickers on cars, I'm like OH NO!!!!!

JP said...

1. The one I hate is the "open heart" design that Jane Seymour supposedly designed... everytime I see it I think it looks like snakes and I think it's Slytherin.

2. There's a reverse correlation between the size of the woman (and kids) and the size of the SUV they drive... the smaller the woman the bigger the SUV. And Hummers stopped being cool as soon as they put out the H2 series. Back when they were still copies of the HMMWV they were cool.

3. I don't find unpolished toenails bad... but I do find polished ones good. It's not necessarily that I like the way they look as much as it is the woman is making an effort to look sexy. I like that.

4. I find the "In Memory Of..." car decals tacky. Please don't memorialize me in white plastic decals... k?

Stacey said...

I love it when my honey brings me a rose out of the blue!

I never thought hummers were cool anyway.

Must have painted toe nails! Even in the winter time!

Those stickers are pretty stupid.

Yes, please wipe the nose, so they don't walk aroun licking it! gross!

My Mercurial Nature said...

Roses=Good, Heart Necklace=Cheesey
Hummers=Meh...not cool.
Unpolished toenails=Only if you have beautiful feet...like, pristine, wonderful, perfect feet (which don't exist)
Names on cars=Don't care
Snot nosed kids=PISSES me off. And if you send your kid to school that way and I have to deal with it, I'll be SO pissed off you may want to move out of state.

Salt said...

When I saw that pic of Christian, I immediately thought you were going to hate on his Batman voice. Because I hate his Batman voice. His face, however, will always have my love.

I was just talking to my hub about the names on the backs of cars and why that is just a stalker/murder's dream come true.

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Thanks for the reminder to go get a pedi. I need one and today sounds like a great day to do it.

And yeah, snot nosed kids are the worst. You can even tell when you look at an adult if they were snot nosed kid when they were younger.

meredith said...

i hate red roses.

wait, didn't christian bale beat up his mom and sister or something???

Date Girl said...

Ugh the family member names. I hate those. I just plain hate the sticker that shows the family and how big they are. Usually they're driving some gas hog and I'm just thinking wow be more of a drain on society.

I hate heart jewelry of any kind. Ew.

Christian Bale is so sexy it actually hurts to look at him sometimes.

Olivia Carter said...

Ack! No matter how often I tell my husband NOT to buy me roses on Valentines he does! It kills me! Sometimes he'll shake it up and get yellow instead of red roses. In his mind it's like the most romantic thing ever.

And, man I wish I could have good dreams with Christian Bale. It had a dream my teeth fell out last night. I'm totally freaked out to eat anything today. I could have used a good sexy dream.

twononblondes said...

OMG Red roses are the most uncreative flower EVER. I tried to drop subtle hints before my b-day to the boyfriend ("Aren't gerbera daisies so awesome? Gerbera daisies are my favorite flower. I want Gerbera daisies.") but I guess flower shops shove red roses in his face or something.

And the Hummer died some time around the time being "green" started being cool. I am sure this too will die eventually and people will start driving equally obnoxious vehicles again.

Tara said...

hahaha. i seriously hate when people put those damn stickers of their family members on their car! so annoying!

MiMi said...

No. See there's this family that takes their kids to my sons school and they have ALL their names and ages on little stick people like that. How DUMB????!!!!
Anyway. Yeah, snot noses on kids that aren't mine make me gag.
Christian Bale makes me melt.

Kiki said...

the "kids with snot" is one of my biggest pet peeves. i know one little booger who is always blowing snot bubbles. ugh. i love christian bale, too. did you see him in "Empire of the Sun?" it's an oldie but a goodie. i saw it in the theater and have been devoted ever since. i will be seeing "Terminator Salvation" this week. was it any good? take care.

Molly said...

too freakin funny! ewwww, snot nose kids. i am totally my grandma now with tissues in every pocket during allergy season!

painted toenails are simply a must. period.

my old neighbor had her family on the back of her car, then got a divorce. she took the husband off and you could clearly tell that is what she did. super classy.

Karen said...

When I saw the picture of Christian Bale I thought, you don't hate Christian Bale! Glad I actually READ what you WROTE.

And I really don't get the concept of putting family names on the back of the car. It's a REALLY bad idea. What are people thinking?

Holly said...

I just read Fabulous (pasta not included) and loved the idea of a hate list. You should never go pedicureless if you are wearing any sort of open shoe! I must say, I never thought Hummers were never cool for the regular street.

Florida Girl Meets the Midwest said...

I am guilty of #3. On the upshot I have managed to dodge the rest.

A 2 Z said...

A hate list? It depends on the time of the month...I never thought of putting it out there but why not? I'm getting my ped as soon as I wear sandals. As a teacher I've seen all the snots I can stomach. As for Mr. Bale, well, I would be willing to wipe his nose anytime...


Blair @ Reasonably Swanky said...

This was HILARIOUS!!! You hate the same things I do. Ha!
My boyfriend in high school gave me a heart shaped diamond necklace and I started crying I was laughing so hard. I know that's mean but COME ON! Like you said, very creative..right?!?!
And snot nosed kids gross me out. Like make me vomit a little in my mouth. Get a freaking tissue or clue mama's!

Hahaha. I needed to see this post tonight!
Hope you had a fab weekend!

McGriddle Pants said...

OH MY GOODNESS! I had no idea how many people *hated* unpainted toenails so much! I never knew!


I'm painting them as we speak!! I'M SO SORRY!!!!!!!!! :(

And yes, I've always hated hummers too, they're so stupid!!

Christina said...

I agree with everything!!! And that snot nosed kid picture really grossed me out while I was eating my sandwich. Hahaha!

Julie said...

Awesome blog! I am a new follower. I love it all!

julietk said...

Yummy Christian Bale, yukky kid :-)

Sarahviz said...

Perfect list - I sooo hate those family stickers that are slapped on every single frickin' minivan around town. Why do I care that you have a family dog/cat and that your daughter plays soccer??? Grrr.

Bethany said...

Awe - yes! I have loved him since Henry VII & Newsies!

MommaKiss said...

Oh, snot nosed kids drive me insane. including my own two. Wipe that shiz off yo face!

charla said...

this totally cracked me up! everyone should have a "hates" post... everyone who's hilarious anyway. :)

Cleo said...

Oooohhhhh...Christian Bale....ahhhhhhh...
You and I would get along well, for our tastes run along the same lines. :)
Just stopping in via your premier SITS day!

Jackie at 3littleones said...

he is so pretty!!!

and I agree about the ass family, snot filled noses and unpolished toes - you said it perfectly!!!

Heligirl said...

Hilarious! I had Christian Bale dreams all through my last pregnancy. Nummy Nummy!!

Katie @ Katie's Dailies said...

Thanks for the one about the snotty nosed kids! That one really drives me 'round the bend!

Jennifer said...

<<Agrees with you on all points!

Especially snot, Gag me with a jackhammer.

And Christian Bale. YUM.

Michelle said...

This is an awesome post! It's so liberating. I love it!

Tiffany said...

I completely judge people who put stickers on their car. It does not matter whether the sticker is about their honor student, their "memorial" of a loved one, a peeing kid or a "family" sticker - they are ridiculous.

It has pretty much MADE my day to discover that Dexter featured a killer who knocked off people based on their car stickers.

MrsShoffernan said...

I hate those stickers, too!!! I'm like, REALLY, aren't we supposed to be deterring kidnappers not inviting them? Geez! "Follow me, I have four kids, a tiny baby, and a little chihuahua that can't protect any of us!"

Just stopping by from SITS, loving your blog!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

mmm Christian Bale dreams. I had 2 dreams about Mark Walhberg last night... that hasn't happened since I was younger when I was obsessed with him... odd.
