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!

Esprit d’escalier

L’esprit de l’escalier, according to Wikipedia, is a French term that describes the predicament of thinking of the right comeback too late.

Here is an opportunity for you to seize a conversation or two from the past that left you defenseless and employ the comeback that came too late. We will certainly be impressed with your razor wit and riposte, and you’ll get to vent some frustrations. It’s a win-win for all.
