Pet Peeves

Believe it or not (and I didn’t), the U.S. recognizes an annual National PET PEEVES Week during the 2nd week in October. So, what is a PET PEEVE? Simply, a PET PEEVE is something that is personally annoying (even though tens-of-thousands of other people may share it with you)–it’s a personal dislike.

Additionally a PET PEEVE can be a sight, smell, sound or feeling that is followed with a negative reaction of your behavior or personality (anything from a sigh, eye rolling or teeth gnashing to outright belligerence, anger or rage). Here’s an opportunity to unload your burden –vent and rant if you wish. Please try and remember that it’s the person’s behavior and not the person that you are annoyed with.

Please have FUN with this journal. Learn something about yourself. Celebrate National Pet Peeves Week by listing/illustrating your PET PEEVES, whether they are about which way to properly hang the TP roll, public nail clipping, or smelly bare/stocking feet at the office. Add art, photos, drawings–anything you want about PET PEEVES.

Keep the journal for a maximum of 2 weeks, and please do not destroy, change, or remove someone else’s work. When you are finished, please re-list the journal at its original page (the ASIN/ISBN is located below) so that it can be mooched again and added to. When it’s full, please contact me (BMID: gemstone or sashacat681 at, and I will mooch it back from you. Thanks!

I Want You to Leave Me Alone

Emily the Strange is apparently perpetually 13 years old, a registered trademark of Cosmic Debris, Inc., and has her own website at She made a blank journal, and it’s in my hands now. Apparently Emily wasn’t in a good mood when she made the journal. I wonder why. What put her in a bad mood? What puts anybody in a bad mood?

So, Bookmoochers, add your pet peeves, your complaints. Things that bug you, drive you crazy, make you furious. Write or add artwork.

You are encouraged to sign your contribution, with your BookMooch username and your real name if you wish, along with the date you completed your entry. Feel free to pass the book around to your local friends, who aren’t on BookMooch, as long as you’re confident they will get it back into the system.

After you and your fellow creatives are done adding your art, please put the journal back into this same page I’ve created for it here at BookMooch so someone else can mooch it and add to it, and when it is full, please contact [Tim] who may be reached through his account at BookMooch [], to send the journal home.
