Things I Don't Get Part 8

For Peet's Sake blog polaroid shots


      Although this is a Things I Don't Get post, it's sort of a confessions one too, because I have a confession to make. Two to be exact. If you've read my last post on monogamy and found some of the things I've written hard to swallow, I have to confess something: There's a paragraph missing. So if you're interested in my full view on monogamy, check the previous post here, scroll down to the comment section and find my reply to Sonia De Macedo (Hi, Sonia!) and - read it. So this is confession number one, which has nothing to do with the TIDG series, but confession number two has...
      In the today's TIDG post, I wanted to include Oprah, because I just didn't get her and all the hype surrounding her, somehow her approach just didn't do it for me and I was pretty sure I'd get lynched for not getting OPRAH. But, as you can see, that's all in past tense, because I've watched her Master Class and listening to her speak about her life was pretty eye-opening. Now, I fully get Oprah and I couldn't agree with her more about the things she said about vibrations and energy and whatnot. So the queen of talk shows didn't make the cut, but who did? Here's the today's list of things I don't get.

  1. Why do people when they call and you don't answer ring till the very last ring? It's common decency to wait 6 rings, 4 according to business etiquette, anything more than that's just redundant. What's with the emergency? Is your house on fire? Are you lost in a jungle somewhere? Are you getting chased by a rhino? Why the fuck are you waiting for the phone to ring 12 times, WHY?? "Oh, hi, there you are! I just wanted to say hello and see how you are. So, how are you?" Really? Really, bitch?
  2. Why don't women with long hair put their hair up and secure their shit while they go swimming in a public swimming pool, so they don't leave their hair everywhere? Whenever I go swimming I always have to wrestle my way from one end of the pool to the other like I'm getting attacked by Kraken from Pirates of the Caribbean.
  3. Why do they make pajamas with pockets? What would a person need so badly during sleep that there's a need for pajama pockets? I don't mind getting poked during the night but not by anything bulging in my damn pajama pocket.
  4. Where are MALE sex tape leaks?? Don't Bradley Coopers and Justin Timberlakes tape themselves having sex? I'm waiting for Justin Bieber to step up to the plate...
  5. Nipple pasties. What's their purpose? You can still see the boob, so what if I can't see your actual nipple, you're still naked, why even bother applying and wearing those? Check this link here - if you click through the gallery (and who doesn't like looking at a parade of boobs), you'll see what I mean. Naked.
  6. How come Gwen Stefani doesn't age?? She looks exactly the same as she did when she started her career with No Doubt 20+ years ago.
  7. How come there's a cartoon about a boy being extremely naughty and wicked - aren't the kids horrible enough on their own, they have to learn how to be even more obnoxious? I'm talking about Horrid Henry (Grozni Gašper in Slovene) and my nephew adores that cartoon, but his parents don't. Naturally.
  8. Ok, it's December today, but it wasn't till yesterday so why the fuck do some of my neighbors have their Christmas lights up for over 2 weeks already? What's next - setting up your Christmas tree and doing your Christmas shopping in July?!
  9. How come the Good Morning Slovenia show on our national TV ends at 2:30 p.m.? How does half past 2 in the afternoon still qualifies as 'morning'?
  10. Why doesn't all of my hair on my head grow to the same length? Those baby hair in the front NEVER grow past the length you see below. Why the fuck not? My boyfriend loves to lick his index finger and thumb and roll my hair with them into two 'antennas' as he calls them and then he goes: "Hey... How's the reception over there? Are you getting any bars because my phone's dead." Ha, ha, very funny. But better this hair then no hair, right?

  1. Haha, I agree with the nipple stickers. Why bother when you are already showing everything? Are you trying to act like you have any modesty left then or something? And indeed, Gwen Stefani really doesn't age. Just like Pharell Williams. And Eminem. What do you think their secret it?

  4. Love your honesty like usual. I have them same baby hairs like you, in the past when my friend was braiding my hair (we were teens), she asked why my hair was short here LOL, xoxo.

  5. Gwen Stefani is a saint. I love her to no end. Also, why DON'T those baby hairs grow? Mine are even shorter. I'm contemplating shaving them...

  9. Many decades ago I asked my telephone company what the right number of rings was. They answered that it was seven. I know it does sometimes take me that long to get to the phone (I only have land lines). I also used to ring too many times compulsively, just incase the person I was calling was like me, thinking: Maybe they'll pick up on the next ring. Now I stop after seven.

    What, you never went shopping in your pajamas and wanted those pockets? I sometimes put paper towels or house keys in the pockets and then - oh, who am I kidding. I sleep in a t-shirt and full brief nylon panties. It feels so comfy!

    I wonder if that Slovenian television station is being run by someone from another part of the world or maybe using clock settings from a time zone far away.

    Nipple pasties are made for people like the ones on the "Facebook Team" who are apparently TERRIFIED of nipples (or maybe it's their boss, Mark Zuckerburg. If so you'd think his billions would get him a good shrink to get over the Nipple-phobia.

    I love your antennae hair.

  11. Maybe your neighbors use the shopping centers putting up their decorations as a signal?

  14. Ahaah Peet, you always brighten my day! First of all, I've already read what you added in the previous post and, as I've told you, I get your point and I share it. Regarding all these things well, Im wondering about Gwn Stefani too now that you make me think lol! But you know, love pajamas with pockets! Dont get me wrong, is cause I always need to have a tissue with me, even during the night!:D My baby hair dont grew either..I give up now. You look so funny and I'm drooling over the leopard booties. Kisses dear, have a great Tuesday! xo

  16. Bahahahaha! I went back to that previous comment to respond then came back to this post, so hey Peet! Oprah is wonderful, I know it's not part of the post but I wanted to give my two cents on her anyway! Her masterclasses made me love her even more. Just wish our cable subscription would play this. I did get to watch her interview thing with Beyonce and that was amazing! Anyway I have to say the phone thing doesn't bug me, though I aim to answer within 3 rings since I always have my phone next to me. I don't get people who don't text back straight away-or ever. I hate those who never text back. That pisses me right off. I mean whenever someone gets a text they check it straight away, we all do it and we know we all do it so f***en write back bitch!

    PJ's! I don't actually wear mine to bed, I sleep in a tank and underwears but I do wear PJ pants around the house so pockets are a good thing for then, it's a place for me to put my phone in while I take my dog outside for her to do her business. But other than that, yeah no point. And Xmas! I know! All my cousins in America seem to have started back in middle of November! I don't understand? And your hair thing! Cute! Mine grow-too fast sometimes but I hate those hairs at the base of your neck (at the back of your head) that always fluff up and fall away when you tie your hair up. They grow, slowly but always fall down and fluff into this ugly frizzy thing!

    Anyhoo, hope you're having a great week pretty! And I think Gwen S is an alien, you're so right, she hasn't aged! I want whatever facial treatments she's using!

  17. Hi Peet, these posts are great because I read them going, hey I dont get that either. Okay, I can maybe vouch for the people that only answer after 12 rings, maybe they were outside or in the bath or somewhere where they didn't hear the phone ring the first 11 times. I also wear Pjs around the house, but sadly none of mine have pockets, I have no idea why. Haha, I am so sure Bieber has one or ten of those tapes by now. He will use it when publicity and talent is running low perhaps. So right about Gwen, we need to find out her secret! No one really does Xmas lights much here in their homes but they do have them in the streets and that starts in November. I wonder what the city's light bill is at the end of it. Your baby hairstyle looks so cute, think of it as your signature look ;) fab fun photos.

  19. aaaaw yes I admire Oprah. No only is she a great business woman, she can act too. Just watched her latest film, The Butler, the other day which was amazing! Number 1 is so me, I do just let it keep ringing, in fact I put it on loudspeaker and go off and do something else until someone answers. Number 10: I love those baby hairs. Afro-Caribbean hair is so dry and coarse and.......afro that we are grateful for some soft fine baby like hair!
