    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    No, the incredibly brainless diot trying to wind the lions up.


    So carrots are morons in Welsh? What does that make leeks?

    This is one hell of a mixed-up carrot! I think it needs therapy!





    Pea in Welsh is pys.

    Perhaps I'm secretly a Welsh pinnacle of peadom?))

    And bean is ffa.
    Is that because they're a ffaff to prepare?

    Got rudely awoken by the rain - it was so heavy I thought it was hailstones. Had a lousy night too.

    Noticed the same three idiot families have washing out! They are the ones that put out their washing without looking at weather forecasts. One of them leaves them out for five days and then decides to take the washing in.

    Woke up in the night with one of those irritating mouth spots/ulcer things, just on the inside of my lower lip. It's really irritating as it's so close to my lower incisors and my tongue won't leave it alone.

    I'm irritated that the Rhonda/Tinks tribute thread was locked. Yes people were starting to argue on it but I think she would have found that quite entertaining
    I just can't get my head around it, it really hits home how suddenly and unfairly anyone can die.

    Yes, on another forum I had an American friend with whom I'd exchanged electronic goods, mp3 players etc. and was friendly with.

    Then he died suddenly of a stroke at 43.

    Having to fight the urge to comment "Your baby looks like a potato" on the photos of someone's newborn on facebook. Everyone is commenting how beautiful he looks, what a gorgeous boy he is but my god, that baby looks like a Maris Piper.
    Not that it's a bad thing! Everyone likes potatoes.

    I had a funny-shaped head when I was a baby. It wasn't a birth canal/forceps thing, I just had a weird head. My mum still tries to convince me I was beautiful baby. I looked like an alien! If I was American, I'd be in the National Enquirer: "Woman gives birth to alien baby, claims not to remember being probed!"

    I'm irritated that the 666th post wasn't more more devilish...well, there's your sig, I suppose.
    Originally posted by Penitent
    Not an irritation, just a slightly humorous memory,that you mentioning 666 reminded me of.

    One holiday I spent the night before in the airport hotel. When I got there and was being given the keycard etc., the receptionist asked me if I was ok with it. I was a bit perplexed until she said, the number of the room.
    It was 666.
    Apparently loads of people refuse to take it!
    I said I didn't give a monkeys as it was just a number and I didn't believe in the devil anyway.
    But as I walked away, I did say that if I didn't appear in the morning.....................
