What is one thing that I cannot stand in the whole world????

It's cleaning blueberries. Let me explain. Hubby's aunt calls me up last night saying she's got 2 big buckets of blueberries and wanted to know if I want them. I said, Ok, she's like I'm going to bring them up to you now. She lives like 2 seconds away. So here she comes with one 10Kg bucket and the other one a 12.7Kg bucket. Yah, here's the catch, the guy that gives them to her "rakes" the berries. There's more f'in leaves, rocks, twigs, bugs and flowers in the buckets than there is blueberries.

So this afternoon I start on my mission to clean these bastards. My house is so damn hot that they are already starting to get soft. So I'm picking through them and I'm getting nowhere. I have slop all through my hands, I'm getting those damn berries on the floor, it's just a big friggen mess. There's nothing I can't stand than doing something as tedious as that. I am grateful for the berries, but hell I have no time to clean 'em. Everytime I go near them one of the kids start buggin for something, then the baby starts, blah. Hubby and I had a good laugh anyway. I should have known there was a catch to 2 big "free" buckets of berries. :)

I hate it when you get started doing something you wish you hadn't. Like cleaning out a closet. Once you start you have to finish.

hahaha! I was in a restaurant one afternoon with a friend ordering to eat (you the know the afternoon when all of the elderly go out eat.....) and I ordered a Diet Cock, yes I heard forks drop on plates, I almost died! And it was a waiter which made it worse. So funny!

I hate it when people give me CORN. Now, don't get me wrong, corn is my all time favorite food, but I absolutely DETEST shucking/worming/silking it!!

LOL @ the blueberries! Did you ever get them done?

Oh, and how weird, Far Away by Nickelback was the last song I had heard when I read #42! Same as you, ironic!

Want me to make you laugh? Sure you do.
When I read #7, I wondered if it was talking about the frozen push-ups that you eat or the bra. So I didn't understand your answer. Until that little light bulb, that so often escapes me, went off and I realized ooooh, push-ups, like the exercise.

Oh, yuck ~ I'm sorry that the blueberries ended up being such a pain in the ass! LOL! :) But mmm, make some blueberry-lemon scones with lemon glaze for me, please. :)
