I am calm

Today would be a really bad day to start my Jedi training as I’ve been a quivering ball of rage for the last 24 hours, which isn’t like me. I’ve had to tell myself to be calm all day and I’m not even pre-menstrual!

My bio-rhythms must be hitting a particularly low trough at the minute, lots of tiny irritations too numerous to describe in full have been piling up to really, really annoy me the last couple of days like irritation Tetris. I think I’ve just lost the level.

So in order to regain my former laid-backiness I have spent the day compiling a therapeutic list of what’s pissing me off. In some cases names have been concealed to protect me from the guilty:

1. Ancient heavy duty staplers
2. Abbey Loans liars
3. Cahoot customer service and security
4. Credit cards that won’t hand over the cash
5. Coffee machines
6. Bananas
7. Headaches
8. Coffee that won’t stay in the cup
9. Microsoft Word
10. Printers with their own insane ideas about how it thinks you want things printed
11. Computer network and helpdesks that think you have the entire contents of a network drive memorised
12. CD Trays
13. Computers in general
14. MP4 players
15. Bittorrent
16. VirginMedia (as always)
17. TV schedulers that put all the good stuff on at the same time on the same evening
18. Petrol stations
19. Mango chutney
20. Another people’s house plants
21. Headphone cables that aren’t long enough
22. Work computers without the correct codecs to let me watch SPN (Grrr!!!!)
23. Stupid bag designs
24. Telephones
25. Realplayer update interruptions
26. People who can’t remember your name, but have a (wrong) guess anyway
27. Cars with stupid bucket seats
28. Sports suspension + pot-holed roads
29. Broken cars
30. Queue jumpers
31. Awkward people who get huffy when you ask them to do their job even when you’ve done half of it for them
32. Mothers and money
33. Cats who won’t take their pills
34. Cat food on fingers
35. Traffic (especially slow drivers that hold everyone up and don’t move over)
36. Bright early mornings that wake you up at 5.30
37. Time in general (not enough)
38. Tangly curtains
39. Forgetfulness
40. Pushy passive-aggressive f***ers from the HM Customs Construction Industry Scheme. I will name you: Tom
41. Spiral notebooks
