1- Glenn Beck - stupid and arch-conservative, hateful and bigoted. Need I say more?
2- Tiger Woods: a late-year addition to the list, I never really cared about him or about golf, now I am totally sick of the jerk, who deserves everything he is getting, but that doesn't mean I need to hear about it.
3- The Jay Leno Show: It wasn't funny as The Tonight Show, but it was on late and pretty much off my radar then. Now it is the same show on earlier, when I do watch TV. And not funny. And with so much product placement it's hard to tell when the commercials start.
4- Puppy mills - the first bust of one happened in our city this year, and the whole thing is heartbreaking and apparently common place; we need a tougher crackdown on such cruelty.
5- My douchebag neighbor who always parks his car illegally and dangerously narrows my way in and out; it's ice and snow season, moron, use your brain!
6- Mother Nature's penchant for cold: MINUS 58 degrees? Really?
7- Barack Obama: yep I am a huge fan, that being said stop the vapid campaign promises and the stupid delays and end "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and repeal DOMA - these laws are bigoted and discriminatory, and you need to strap on some balls and do the right thing.
8- People at dinner parties who hog the conversation, turn every discussion back towards them, offer unsolicited advice on our house or our wedding, and then tell stories about waiters doing gross things with food. You know who you are.
9- The network geniuses who cancelled Boston Legal and renewed Ghost Whisperer. Really?
10- Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Really?
11- Tito, Randy, Jermaine, and those other Jacksons whose names escape me; seeing as you haven't been on our radar for decades, yes you are cashing in on your brother's death, which is macabre and tacky, so stop it.
12- Wealthy Americans with oodles of expensive health care who don't want public health care for everyone; stop saying you have the greatest country ever if you don't give a crap about your poor people.
14- The visual image of clowns having sex. Shoes on. Don't ask.
15- Big farts from little dogs (not that I am naming names).Okay that's it for now, chances are there is more griping to come...
