10 Things That Make Me Fuzzy

So I noticed that my blog has been really depressing so far.  I'm really not like that!!!  Promise.  So I thought I'd do this fun thing that I saw on Vashti's blog from All That Is Good.  I thought it was cute.  10 things that make you "fuzzy"  (AKA: Mad)...

1) Sexism.  Yeah...I get it.  At work.  I'm the only female in my group and every once in awhile there are "Danae-the-men-are-talking" moments.  Oh well.  I know that I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and dog-gone it.  People like me.

2) Receiving the pink mail slip that I've missed a package.  I know that this is slightly anal retentive...I really REALLY hate missing packages and as SOON as I know that I have a package, I want to have it...It's really bad.

3) Slow people.  This seems to be a prevalent one.  I work in Times Square and almost EVERYONE is stopping right in front of me to take a picture of a tall building.  There are lots of tall buildings that you don't need to stop in the sidewalk for.  Please move.

4) Subway smells.  How many people have to urinate in one spot for the MTA to clean it?

5) Speaking of the subway...MTA weekends.  Is the train going local or express?  Is the train even running?  Why can I not get off at 96th street?!

6) Red-tape.  It feels like that's all I get at MTV sometimes.  Constant red tape.  How many e-mails does it take to get something posted on the website?!

7) Bent paper.  When I want to present something, I always want the paper to be completely flat.  No creases, no bent corners.  Once again.  More anal retentive then I ever thought.

8) Blue pens.  I really don't like blue pens.

9) Racism.  Living in Harlem, I get racist comments every once in awhile.  It's kind of weird...and it's always at times that I don't expect it.

10) People hurting children.  I was told once that sometimes the anger in our lives come from our great love of something.  I don't have any children, but I don't understand how someone could harm them.  Ever.


  1. Oh I just HATE when I'm walking along and people stop in front of me. Hello? Please try and be aware of your surroundings. Thanks and have a nie day. ;-)

  2. Hi there! What a great list. And you work in New York? Wow - that was always my dream!

    Blue pens are weird. Have a super FMM!


  3. Thank you very much! Yes, I do work in New York. In Times Square. It's interesting, to say the least. ;)

    And I hope you both have a great day!!

  4. Hey there nice to meet you, and glad you played along! Great list! I won't use paper that is bent or folded..too funny! I've always been like that!

    Wow, New York City...awesome! I've never even been on that side of the country!

    Have a great Tuesday!


  5. #8 cracks me up - I love blue pens! LOL

    #10 I agree with 100% - I don't get it, either. Especially now that I have kids!
