What To Do, What To Do…

I’m the worst list maker.

I can make all sorts of lists.  One of two things happen.  Either, I lose it.  Or, second, nothing gets done and I keep that paper so it becomes clutter – something else to pile up on any flat surface.

But now, I need ideas on what to write about.  A suggestion was the “one word” prompt, which I was using, but now I need my own place for ideas.  A place to go for when even those “one word” prompts just don’t really inspire me or if I even have a CLUE as to what it means.  Honestly, I truly don’t think I should have to use an online dictionary to have to figure out the meaning of a prompt. If I don’t get it, it’s not worth the hassle.

Here’s one list – Those things I LOVE to splurge on when I have the extra funds or time:

  • Tazo or Oregon latte mix concentrate
  • Tazo Vanilla latte tea bags
  • Leisurely walks on local walking trails in the springtime
  • Walks along the walking trails in national parks
  • Listening to the ocean while walking along the shore – or just sitting and watching the waves
  • Cranking up the music on Spotify and dancing in my house – ALONE
  • Playing Skyrim or Elder Scrolls Online – watch out for those in-game purchases!
  • Having my nails done professionally
  • Having my hair done
  • Having time out and a great laugh with a girlfriend

Now, here’s another list: Things that JUST ANNOY THE HELL OUT OF ME!

  • People who drive fast and pass you to beat a stoplight then? They’re caught at the same light as you.
  • People who drive and they’re getting dressed – makeup or even LITERALLY as they’re putting on clothing –  as they drive
  • Texting and driving – bad combination
  • A car PACKED with teenagers, DRIVEN by a teenager.  Need I say more?
  • “Oh I’m SO HUNGRY,” says a friend of yours then?  He/she eats – NOTHING!  You, meanwhile, would eat the whole DAMNED FARM!
  • Long lines at a bank or even, infamously, at the Department of Motor Vehicles…and out of eight or nine POSSIBLE lines, they could have open?  Only…TWO are.  Even worse?  It’s near closing time.
  • Packed airplane with one frazzled parent and a screaming child – for an entire cross-country trip.
  • My all-time favorite?  Fingernails on a chalkboard.
  • People NOT turning off the ringers on their cell phones, after being told to do so, and then, that ringer goes off giving everyone a heart attack!
  • People who come to work sick, thinking it shows “dedication.”

Now comes one-word items of things I dislike:

  • Dishes
  • Vacuuming
  • Mopping
  • Laundry
  • Folding that laundry
  • Filling out paperwork
  • Going THROUGH paperwork to keep or to “trash”
  • Packing (trip or to move)
  • Unpacking (from a trip or after a move)
  • Making the bed

Ok, I must have those one-word items of things I actually like:

  • laughter
  • latte
  • writing
  • shopping
  • hairstyling
  • earrings
  • facials
  • makeup
  • hugs
  • daydreaming

Looking things over, I don’t think I did too badly on this list.  I sure could use some feedback on this one so if you have any, leave them in the comments. I sure would appreciate them.  Meanwhile, I’m liable to look like this when writing my next post:
