Things that just....ugh

Wanna know what makes me a little annoyed, but also giggle at the same time?


So lately all these people have been pinning, facebooking, etc, "How to deseed a pomegranate in less than 5 minutes!" and I even saw an article on Yahoo about it. was some revolutionary thing. Hoorah for the world! They've figured it out!

Well. I guess all I have to say about that is that Martha taught me how to do that method over 7 years ago. Cut it in half, whop it with a wooden spoon, walah! Seriously. I just can't believe it's taken the world this long. If everyone watched/learned from Martha like I believe they should, then really...we'd all be better off.

Let me tell you something else that irks me. I often express my passion for Cadbury Mini Eggs. You they are the best candy known to man. Well, the problem is, about 90% of people that I express my passion to says, "Ohhhhhhhhh I love those eggs. The creme is sooo good." or something to that effect in which my body starts convulsing into hysteria and I want to scream "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!" I don't know. It just really irks me. Cadbury Mini Eggs are like so much better in every single way than Cadbury CREME eggs. Eck. I don't even like those creme eggs. They are disgusting. So of course then I have to have the discussion, "NO- the mini eggs, with the hard shells?" and then they are like, "Oh yeah those are good". Like it's nothing! It's upsetting. Another thing I feel the world should have caught on to by now.

Did you know that Lady Gaga is going to outerspace to perform in 2015? Yeah. It's like some big deal or something because she will be the first to perform in outer space. But here's the deal. She will be videoed, and broadcast...on earth. Like, who cares? I got to thinking about this and there are two big points that I thought of:

1. How do I even know she is in space? If it's just a video then its like...umm....she could be in a green room for all I know. And how is she performing? In a spaceship? Are they building a stage for her in a space shuttle? I started to realize that if I had been around when the spaceship landed on the moon, I may have been one of those conspiracy people who thinks it wasn't real. I mean, I definitely think it's real now...but I can see why people doubted. And I guess the more I learn about the entertainment business, and media, the more I learn that its mostly all lies.

2. I get sick on airplanes when there is turbulence. I can't IMAGINE the turbulence sickness going through the...ATMOSPHERE! Hello? How is she supposed to perform after going through space? I dunno.

The whole thing is a bit on the ridiculous side to me. May as well wait until there is a community living in space, like Zenon, Girl of the 21st Century. (Zoom, zoom, zoom, make my heart go boom boom my super nova girl!) 

Well, that's all for now. Check in next week for my professional outlook on current news.


  1. Ok, I really loved this post. I've been dealing with Scarlet's diarrhea and vomit the last 48 hours and have been needing a good little laugh. Thanks! Mini eggs- I know! Why on earth they aren't YEAR ROUND, I'll never understand. But the last time I had them, they tasted DIFFERENT, not as good and I noticed they were HERSHEYS, not cadbury anymore. But you guys haven't seemed to notice. I don't know. And the creme IS nasty. Straight up sugar. No depth to the flavor. Just grossness. Gaga in space? That is insane! I mean, how much is she going to train for this? When I think how many astronauts DON'T get to go to space, and SHE is goign to? I mean, Iguess it's a wild idea, but not if there isn't an audience. The whole thing IS wierd. How long will she be up there. Is she paying for the whole thing? I should look this up. Strange. Strange. POMEGRANITES!!!!! People have been talking about them here and Greg wants me to buy them. They are the most annoying things to eat! Who likes eating seeds? They are HARD and not good, even when covered in a juicy goodness. It's not enough. I HATE pomegranites. It's been awhile since I've had one, but am pretty convinced I will always detest them. I mean, in every OTHER fruit on the planet, we spit out the seeds and avoid them. This is all this one is! Hard seeds! Maybe I'm wrong. But I don' tthink I am. Congrats to you for knowing how to get the seeds out. I sure didn't. I think I tried once, over a decade ago.LOVE and miss you.

  2. PAHahhaha oh my gosh i always love your posts. OK what the crap about lady gaga?! I just can't stand her. I seriously could go off on her right now. but i won't, since it's your blog, save it for a chat session. But space? first of all, alot could happen between NOW and 2015, why would you announce something like that? And- i'm sure other celebrities are trying so hard to beat her to it now. And what the crap, HOW is she doing that? You have to be a genius to do that, she isn't. I mean seriously how is she going to do that?! She's going to use a government funded ROCKET to go to space? unless she's using Russias?! ha. I didnt' know the pomegranite thing, but i never buy them, but yes its so annoying when pinterest or something posts something that's been around forever adn is suddenyl a revelation to people. UGHHHHHHHHHH cadburry eggs- I HATE IT WHEN PEOPEL DO THAT!!!!!!!!!!! love you! OH- and what megan said- hershy's owns cadburry, they're prob just making it more obvious on the bag now or something. it's alwayts been hershys, i know this because i did a report on Hershy's in higschool hahaha. seriously. love you!

  3. Hey Danielle. You probably don't even remember me, but we were in the same married ward in college and I ran across your blog while looking at the Congers. I promise I'm not a weird stalker person. Anyway, you posted awhile ago about a website that you found where you put in your Scripture reading goal and then it tells you how much you need to read each day to stay on track. And I think it even sent you a daily e-mail. Do you by chance remember what that website is? Also, thanks for posting about the honey forever ago- we bought a bunch last time we were in the area and are loving it!

  4. I am so sorry that I haven't been commenting on your blog lately, I have just been having so many doctor appt. with grandpa that I haven't been doing much of anything on the puter. I miss reading and I have caught up with them all and I really agree that everyone should read Martha I love her and all of her ideas. I really love the Mini Eggs and I hate the cream ones. UGH!!! They are gross. I really love eating grapefruit, and our nephew said a lot about juice today, namely using carrot and beets to cure cancer of the pancreas, I may buy a juicer and try it if that is what grandpa has. We shall see. It takes a lot of juice drinking. We will see. I love you and miss you Hugs
