Three things that have really frosted my cookies lately:

1. The Album Only option on iTunes - Normally this wouldn't be such a peeve, after all, we have spent years buying albums in their entirety. But iTunes was created so we could pick and choose which songs we wanted, and when a SOUNDTRACK is available all-or-nothing, it really irritates me. Artists are welcome to make their album available only in one purchase. I see the point and wouldn't really blame you. But Confessions of a Shopaholic Soundtrack, you are not the creative masterpiece that you think you are and I am really angry that I can't just buy one song. Either get thyself off iTunes, or make your songs - all of which are performed by different artists - available individually. Thanks.

2. Talking Fish - This new McDonald's commercial where the singing fish starts asking for the filet of fish back has really got me going. It's just creepy. I officially hate all singing/talking fish plaques and also officially hate that song. Please take it off the air immediately, McDonald's, and in its place, may I suggest you run JT's "I'm loving it" ads instead?

3. And speaking of creepy - Submarines. Yes, submarines have somehow found their way onto my list of pet peeves. Last night, C and I went to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and that scene when BB sees a submarine is still haunting me a good 18 hours later (side note: the movie was fantastic). But back to subs. These vessels just sit in the ocean like God-forsaken eels and then pop up, survey the scene, and disappear again, all mysterious and lurky. I don't think submarines can be trusted. It's just such a weird concept. Let's live in a tank under the water? No thanks. Submarines, consider yourselves warned.


  1. I agree with the album only crap. Stuff like this is the reason people started justifying stealing music in the first place.

    I wanted one song on the In Good Company soundtrack. All I do now is go to YouTube and listen to it over and over again.

  2. 1. I don't have an ipod or an itunes account, so I can only partially be upset about this.

    2. I have never seen this commercial, but they should still run the JT ads.

    3. Glad you liked the movie. Travis and I are big fans as well. I also think it is hilarious that you're frustrated with submarine. I think part of their purpose is to be mysterious and lurky.

  3. Preach it, sister!

    I'm with you on #1 and #2 - feel the EXACT same way, and although I haven't seen the movie, I can definitely feel the creepiness of #3.

    May also add that I can't stand the commercial with the mom who lets one kid cut the piece of bread with peanut butter and the other kid pick....the part that irritates me most is when that kid says, "Nice!"


Oh goody!
