I just learned a new word via Facebook, and feel the need to use it immediately.  So here goes...  :D

 

I'm tired of the "askholes" in my life.  Askhole: a person who constantly asks for your advice, yet always does the opposite of what you told them.

This one seems to be a pretty UO.  Chocolate covered cherries are disgusting.  :ack2:   DH loves them so much that he buys out the store after Christmas every year when they go on clearance.

They're super yummy when frozen!

Oh, I'm with you on that one. In fact, I'll go so far as to say most combinations of fruit and chocolate are unpleasant. I like both, but they need to stay in their own spheres.

UO

 

I think people who say they are thinkers, not feelers, have just shut down their capacity to feel and actually need to get in touch with why they can't/don't "feel emotions."

 

A Myer's-Briggs proficianado I know believes she is a T on the T-F scale, and while she might be, she uses it at every turn to deny her emotions instead of facing the pain/discomfort of feeling them. I think it comes from having bad experiences that felt awful, and she turned to rationalizing/being a "thinker" as a way of coping.

 

 

Speaking as someone who talks in terms of what I am thinking rather than feeling.. I feel emotions but I grew up in a environment that didn't verbally pair an emotion with an action.  So, I am more apt to speak in thinking terms instead of  emotion terms. I have been working to connect the two together more.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Yeah, I know, this thread finally almost died and I'm bringing it back. However, I just realized something about myself and felt the need to admit it somewhere, and I can't very well tweet or post about it on facebook since it involves people there.

 

My estimation of your intelligence drops significantly if you "like" Fox News. (This from a conservative Christian.) It tells me that you can't think for yourself and need your opinions fed to you.

Meh, I read a lot of different news sources, including Fox, THEN sift through the info to form an opinion. How can you tell what someone else does by one "like" on Facebook? Maybe they had to like it to enter a contest. :)

 I'm a lifelong extrovert. I don't think leaving a party and needing some rest and quiet really makes one an introvert. Neither does enjoying a week at home with your family. Now, if you could happily do a week of solitude without the Internet, you may be legit. I think I'd lose my mind by day 3 or 4 no matter how tired or stressed I was at the beginning of the week.

Probably.  Though I can't imagine missing Pinterest for an entire week...

 

Much like swellmama said, the internet serves a completely different function for me than real-life-contact.  I don't blog, for example, because I already "journal" on FB or forums.  lol  

 

To the party thing, an introvert can be quite happy sitting in the corner just watching the crowd.  They don't have to be directly involved at all.  They're not lonely.

Wine tasting is pretentious. If a person can claim to taste heirloom roses, grassy knolls, and smell the whiff of gentle zephyrs in wine why can't they also taste fertilizer, worm poop and the wine stompers' foot fungi? Do these not register on their taste buds?

Friendship Bread is like food chain mail that takes a lot more work, creates more guilt, and doesn't even taste that good!

 

I can't turn it down- um, no...I don't want to be your friend, sorry, peddle that starter somewhere else. Ouch. But-I'm not making more starters and breaking the chain! I only feel a tiny bit of guilt for pouring the rest of the starter in the trash. And that crap about "only the Amish know how to create a starter." BS.

Hehe, I can't imagine the Amish making a bread that is full of sugar and pudding mix. :)

Ok, I am late to the game, but this thread has me cracking up.

 

I am not a baby person, but I LOVE teenagers. Stick me with one or  2 littles for a couple of hours and I am hating it. Put me in a room with 78 teens for 4 hours and I have more energy than when I went in. I will even dance around and sing about what the fox said. :)

 

I love Jane Austen movies, HATE reading her books.

 

I am not a huge fan of Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ryan Gosling etc... I think Ewan Mcgregor is dead sexy!

 

I love having Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant. DH and I are both great cooks, but we like to go out for Thanksgiving.

Sometimes if you want to comment on certain pages (troll them) then they require you "like" them before you are permitted to comment (troll them) I have "liked" several politicians that I would normally disagree with so I could comment (troll) on their pages.

Coming in late to this thread:

 

I don't understand how Dave Ramsey has gotten so rich teaching people simple math that your income has to be more than your spending to not be in debt. I had already figured that out before his books became popular and am kicking myself for not writing it down for others before he did.

 

When people find out I am a SAHM and ask in surprise what I do all day, I want to reply, "The same thing the person you pay to keep your children are doing all day" (Nothing against working moms, I have worked full time and part time as a mom and will do so again if needed, just have a problem with the attitude that SAHM moms work less than a nanny or daycare provider).

 

I don't think cleanliness is next to godliness.

 

I can't stand chore charts with stars and smiley faces for kids, but nothing against those who do. To each his own.

 

Eating out at a nice restaurant and paying someone to wait on you is overrated. My husband disagrees, so for my birthday we go to self serve restaurants and for his birthday we go to a nice sit down restaurant.

 

I think Sweet CiCis and other self serve yogurt/ice cream places that don't offer a small kid's cup that makes an adequate amount of ice cream look filling to the kid are cruel.

 

 

 

It feels nice to get this off my chest! Thanks to OP!

This made me laugh.  We use a reward system for chores and on my fridge right now are not one but TWO chore charts (one for each kid) and we use stars AND smiley face stickers! :lol:

  1. Just because we are both home schoolers doesn't mean I HAVE to be friends with you, like you or even tolerate you.
  2. If you think home schooling is the best option in your life right now, because the school is using the Children's Aid Society to harass you, don't expect my help to start home schooling.  I will not encourage you to "join our ranks".

 

That's all I have today.  Off to bed now, good night.

About cheerios, I have a teenager who pops a bag of microwave popcorn and fills a separate bowl with cheerios and eats the two together as a favorite snack.  :ack2:

 

As a teen, way back when, I would eat a bowl of Cookie Crisp cereal (w/ milk) and Sour Cream & Cheddar Ruffles together (not chewing both at the same time..)  Mmmmm :)

I do not believe that a stay at home mom is the same as a homeschool mom.

 

And neither is the same as a home-maker or house-wife.

 

I heard an interesting interview on NPR yesterday with the author who wrote the new book All Joy and No Fun, and she had an interesting point about the distinction between a house-wife and a stay-at-home-mother.

I like to eat the "white" pulpy part of an orange that's between the fruit and the rind...

You win goldielocks. That truly is unpopular.

Though I guess true to your name, it is the middle bit between two extremes; peel and flesh.

 

I still have the Christmas tree up and actually plugged it in today... we are having a blizzard, ya know...

We still have our tree and decorations up and we are having too many nasty hot days (over 40 oC). But this does mean the sun reflects the tinsel back across the walls each afternoon.

I think the only people who get an opinion on if a wife stays home or works for money are that wife and her spouse. I am so tired of women maligning women who live differently than them.

 

I am a full time homemaker and I easily spend 2 hours a day most days working out/exercising. There is no shame in choosing to live in a more personally pleasant manner. So when someone bitched to me about moms "who don't work and go to yoga everyday" I was unimpressed.

I guarantee you that these two things would drastically, DRASTICALLY, reduce every type of crime and GREATLY reduce AIDS and STD's. 

 

I would think that sterilisation would, if anything, increase the incidence of AIDS and STDs.

I don't understand the whole Disney thing. I have no desire to drag my kids around that place. I might do it anyway at some point just so they can say they've done it, but it does not sound like a vacation to me.

My respect for my facebook friends is indirectly related to the rate of selfies posted.

 

Oh dear...

This brings me to a VERY UO for most people like me.....

I take selfies.

In high school, LONG before selfies were popular, I took selfies.  Lots of them.  And they were on film and were developed.  :lol:  

Granted, I don't take nearly as many now.  Not even one per week.  

But yeah, I take them.  :D  :D  :D

I didn't used to like Oreos... 

I have come to my senses!

 

I still don't like regular Oreos.  Chocolate oreos and double-stuffed on the other hand....

 

I love our new pet, even though a lot of people think we're crazy.  Isn't he cute?

I get tired of hearing about how lazy, stubborn, moody selfish, out of control etc teens are. I believe it is entirely possible to have  teenagers  that are honest, hard working, cheerful, compliant, and a joy to be around.

Totally!! I know tons of them. When our son was born we asked for parenting advice from the parents of a few.

Dark chocolate covered strawberries (perfectly ripe) are better than sex with most people. That's only if the dark chocolate is premium, and not fake or milk chocolate with a bit more cocoa.

Ok I had to go look lol... 

I'd say 9 in the last year count as selfies.  I'm not counting pictures with other people or with an elephant.  At least 2 are re: new hair color.   :)  So that's not too bad, IMO.

Glad to see this thread resurrected. My current UO's:

 

Men who publicly refer to their wives as "hot" are disgusting. The ick-factor triples if said man is a pastor.

 

No one on Facebook thinks your kids are half as cute as you do. I do not need or want to see a daily photo of your two children doing nothing but smiling for the camera. Nor do I need a daily reminder of how "blessed" and "undeserving" you are of these "two miracles" that God has given you. Thank God all you want, but leave me out of it.

Yes, yes, yes!  Not only do I totally agree with this, I'm quite discombobulated because one of my good friends keeps posting on FB about the "hot date" she's about to go on with her husband. No. Just...no. For some reason, though, I appear to be the only one in my circle of friends who thinks this is less than classy - she is generally encouraged :001_rolleyes:

Dear PeachyDoodle,

 

I think I may love you. Or, at the very least, we are long-lost siblings.
