Bah Humbug

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from, if possible. We also provide a link to the victim's questions in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post. Cheers to all of us thieves!

 Bah Humbug!  Before we get all warm and cozy for the upcoming holidays, here's a chance to let out all those angry feelings you've been harboring .  I copied this a long time ago and don't remember where I stole it from.

TV show I loathe:
If I loathe the show, I won't watch it.  There are several shows that I have never watched that I know I would loathe if I did...any "mating and dating" show (The Bachelor, Bachelorette, Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire, etc), anything with Kardashian or "Christley" in it

Movie I loathe:
I can't think of a movie I loathe (except I remember hating The Stuntman decades ago but don't remember why now.  There are movies I'm not fond of, especially at this time of year-foremost among them would be It's a Wonderful Life (because it's played to death in December) followed by any of the sappy formulaic Christmas movies that Hallmark shows during the whole month of December.

Music genres I loathe:
Anything loud and "splatty," which would include not only heavy metal, but also most modern operas and/or symphonies!

Magazine which annoys me:
I don't really read magazines any more because the print size is too small, but I would think I would not enjoy any right wing propagandistic publication.

Makes me cranky at restaurant:
Two things -- parents who let their kids run around unsupervised, and overly solicitous wait staff.  It's one thing to be attentive to your customers; it's entirely another to interrupt them every couple of minutes to ask if everything is all right.  Olive Garden in Sacramento is famous for this.

Makes me cranky in public:
Everybody walking around looking at their cell phones.

Makes me impatient at home:
Polly's bark to let us know we are not doing something she wants us to do.  There is no "off" button on a Chihuahua!

Makes me impatient at work:
I'm retired, so this doesn't apply.

Celebrity I hate:
"Hate" is such a strong word, but I find I can't look at Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey or Matt Lauer now and I used to like all three of them.  So very disillusioned!

Music artist I hate:
I don't know any current music artists enough to hate any of them.

I could care less about:
What Bill O'Riley, Rush Limbaugh or Steve Bannon have to say, though Bannon is a very scary guy with far too much influence on #45.

Blogger's habit that annoys you:
It annoys me when a blogger writes something really good....but has no comment or contact information so I can compliment him/her on it.

Feature on your blog you hate:
I'm pretty much content with it.  I would like to change the look just because it's looked the same for many, many years, but every time I try I end up with the same look -- it's why I change the wallpaper and colors each month.  It's the only change I feel comfortable with.

Politician that you hate:
Could there be any doubt?
