Will the weather just stop PMS’ng? Thank you.

Please, don’t get me wrong, the weather has definitely improved here in Ontario, but it’s still not quite where it needs to be. Last time I checked, this is Spring, not the Fall. The rain hasn’t been too bad, but the winds, oh my! I appreciate it when it’s warm and windy, because my face doesn’t turn into an icicle, but I want the high speed winds to stop just for a few days.


My life doesn’t revolve complaining about the weather, but I just want well-behaved weather, is that too much to ask for? Well, apparently it is in this Province :p. It’s funny how when I lived in Vancouver, I had my rants over the rain, but now it’s all about the wind. Ah well, it keeps life interesting I suppose. As I mentioned before, I don’t mind when it’s windy BUT warm; however, it does cause some confusion when I’m hermit-ing in my room. The reason? When it’s windy and cloudy, the clouds will cover the sun every minute or so, and this my friends is when I don’t know whether to turn my lights on or not. If the clouds cover the sun, then it gets dark in my room, but when I’m about to switch on the lights, the clouds pass and reveal the sun again, and it feels like it’s noon when it’s only 4 pm. It becomes annoying, because it feels like someone is flickering the sunlight on and off. If this is how Mother Nature behaves when on PMS, I don’t want to know when she enters menopause…


What has Mother Nature done to you?

Express Lanes – Pathways of HELL

I usually don’t complain, but I have noticed that Express Lanes at certain stores are totally pointless. I’m not entitled nor do I rant to their employees about things like this (they suffer enough), so I will rant here :D. Let me ask something, isn’t the point of a Express Lane to move quickly? 


“12 or more items,” should be “5 and no more items,” because imagine if one product does not scan, or the buyer rants about a microscopic dot on their product, do you think the line would move fast if the cashier had to still scan 11 more items? Honestly, I have seen the regular lanes move faster than the Express lane a lot more often than I should. When I go to the market, I expect to take a while, so it’s not like I’m always in a rush, but it’d be nice to get out of there in a fair manner.


An Express lane shouldn’t be the place where you can have meaningful conversations with 10 strangers waiting in line, with whom you sing ‘Kumbaya’ as soon as the line starts moving…an inch! This isn’t about the cashiers, they’re mostly awesome and move efficiently, but this is about decreasing the limit amount for an Express line, so companies pay attention! This is an example of when words mean nothing when the actions do not go with them.


In all honesty, when I have 12 items I go to the regular lanes, just to be considerate (unless I’m in a rush). But, I can’t really blame customers for this, because the rules do say “12 items or less” or “15 items or less”.  Just to be positive, I have been to supermarkets where the Express Lane really is fast, so props to them! But I do feel like other stores just have all regular lanes, and they just call them ‘Express Lanes’ to sugar coat them.  Which is why I only buy in bulks, and try not to buy in small quantities, so I won’t have to wait 20 minutes in order to buy a pack of gum.

The heck is it with the Spam?

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing extremely well today :).  I had a great day at work, but don’t ask me about the weather; I’m cranky at Mother Nature.

I laugh when I read the Spam. It makes absolutely no sense! I wish they would at least make the effort to make it seem legit, but now it’s just getting sad. I can’t ignore the Spam anymore, I’m having the laugh of my life over here, but it is irritating. Usually the Spam comments are like 1000 pages long, but here are a few of their short versions:


Spam #1: “Whatgood work! You are the pride of our class”.

-What class? Upper class, History class, Geology class, classless class?


Spam #2: “Could you ask him to call me?”

-Really? Who? You know there are a lot of guys on WordPress…


Spam #3: “Incorrect PIN…”

-This is not an ATM, are these bots on drugs or something? What are you saying? Do I have to enter a PIN every time I want to submit a post? I don’t get it.


Spam #4: “I’m not interested in football”.

– I have never made a post about football. Ever. So, where is this coming from?


 Spam #5: “Youa??re so amazing! I do not believe Ia??ve go through everything like this ahead of…”

– I was going to post the entire comment, but I lost all brain cells and got a migraine.


What kind of Spam do YOU get?

Ellie’s Kingdom of NOPE

Hi everyone! Hope the weekend is treating you well. I’m doing good, just a bit tired :). The weather has been mild, but definitely better than the past 3 months! I’ll enjoy this while it lasts ;).

I may be a positive person, but that doesn’t mean I love everything (although I do try to). Rarely you will see me get upset, but when you do, you know I mean business. So, here are some things that bother me.

Kingdom of NOPE

1) The animals I am still not fond of, such as snakes, spiders, chameleons (their eyes creep me out), bees (if they stay far away from me, I’m cool), skunks, and other animals I can’t think of at the moment. It’s not like I wish they didn’t exist, I just don’t want them near me.



2) People who take up all the space in public places. This includes, sidewalks, malls, supermarkets, etc. They think public places are sardine cans, and okay at some of them you don’t have an option, but when you have a lot of space, there is no excuse. Think of others people! Oh, don’t even get me starting on 4 generations of a family who walk SIDE BY SIDE, leaving absolutely no space for anyone to walk by. When you do pass them, they stare at you as if you were the devil himself coming to collect their souls.


3) Smelly people. Take a shower, please. Basic hygiene doesn’t cost much, and if you can afford a car, you can afford a shower. I can only stand so much pestilence before I loose all sense of smell.


4) My period. That is all.


5) Holes. I wouldn’t go as far as to say I have trypophobia, but it’s getting there.


6) Sudden loud noises. This includes any type of noise; motorcycle, teenagers screaming for no reason, hand dryers, trucks. etc. I still want to understand why teenagers scream like maniacs. I don’t remember being this way. What the heck are they putting in their water?


7) Entitled people. Seriously, the world is not your throne.


8) When my in-ear headphones becomes my worst enemy. How do they get tangled without touching it? Are they alive? Oh and the worst part, when you break them after untangling. Yea, definitely the devil’s tool.


9) When people use gyms as a dating service.
