Things I Don't Get Part 10

For Peet's Sake blog colorful paint splatter girl face

      Most nights I have trouble sleeping. Not just that I'm a light sleeper, getting myself to sleep is an endeavor by itself too, because my brain refuses to shut down. I'm always coming up with this or that so I'm constantly grabbing for my phone and writing stuff down long after I've gone to bed. One night, after I had reached for my phone for the 7th time, my boyfriend asked: "Ok, what's the deal here, what are you writing down all the time?" So I showed him the text and it said something like 'pigeon toe cleavage dripping hole'. "Great," he said, "so you don't only have issues with sleeping, you're crazy too." But to me that isn't crazy, to me it obviously makes perfect sense since I made this post for the TIDG series out of it. And I'm sure that after you'll read the today's list of things I don't get, pigeon toe cleavage dripping hole will make a lot of sense to you too.

  1. I already wrote something about this in my first Things My Boyfriend Doesn't Like post actually but I'm bringing it up again because - I don't get people who don't like tomatoes, cheese, ham, mushrooms etc., EXCEPT when they're on a pizza. Like pizza makes it all better? It still tastes the same, you're just acting like a spoiled brat that needs a week at my parents' boot camp, then you'd eat everything at all times. Or else...
  2. Toe cleavage. I don't get how people think that's sexy. To me it just looks painful. And like you need one size bigger shoes.
  3. How can someone go from Hannah Montana to Miley Cyrus. That's pure magic. That's better than David Copperfield going through the Great Wall of China.
  4. I don't get how come people, especially women, don't wear underwear. There's always something oozing out of your privates and without underwear, what's there to catch it? Your jeans? The carpet? Think about it: there's something leaking from the skin under your armpits and that's a flat surface. Now tell me there's not always something dripping out of a hole.
  5. A while back I canceled one of my email subscriptions to some online magazine because it was basically just spam. And I don't get how come - after I had just said 'ok, I've had enough of you, leave me alone' - I got TWO emails from them reassuring me that they won't be bothering me again. Those didn't make me regret my decision and want to subscribe again, it made me want to scream 'I'll believe it when see it!!!' (or don't see it in this case).
  6. Why do they make pads and covers for baby changing tables covered in tiny elephants and pink bunnies and stupid miniature butterflies? It's not like the baby will ever see it. No, the mother (and on some rare occasions the father) will see it, so aside from looking at the kids pile of shit, you have to look at some frigging pastel atrociousness. They should start making those covers with that Maroon 5 naked dude or something along those abs lines.
  7. Why do people walk on their beds with shoes on? You always see that in movies and now fashion bloggers are posing on their beds in shoes. I mean... What the fuck?!
  8. I don't get people taking pictures at cemeteries. I was on Elvis' grave and people took pictures of it and next to it smiling and holding up peace signs and what not. Really? There's a dead person under your feet. Famous or not, doesn't matter. Do you really think that taking a picture next to someone's grave is cool?
  9. Why do most people want to be model skinny and model fit? I'm not talking about healthy thin - you don't do 1000 sit ups and 500 push up a day to be healthy, you do it to look extra good. But why? You don't get paid for it like models do. You don't hear models say 'I have to learn how to perform a triple bypass' or 'I need to learn how to drive a forklift'. On the other hand, why do we all want to prepare for a model's job? Life is not a casting call, is it?? I admit, I sometimes attempt to transform my flabby body into something a bit more modelesque than my occupational position of a translator calls for, but then I think: Who am I kidding, I'm not getting paid for having a flat stomach and a rock hard ass, who cares, bring on the cheese burgers and large beers. And a shot of something, please. I love calories. Calories are good for you. And I'm pretty sure you don't have to be Miranda Kerr malnourished skinny to look good in a bikini. Hey, that rhymed. You don't have to be model skinny to look good in a bikini so have some panini whether you're big, medium or mini.

  1. I love these photos! They're so cool. I died laughing about number 10. And bloggers who wear shoes on heir beds: whaddaya doing with ya life? You're just getting your sheets super dirty and that more laundry you have to do and why not just take picture barefoot because that would be so much cooler and RAWR! Why you stupid?

  2. These posts are my favourite because you always brave enough to type out what I am thinking. I know exactly what you mean about people who eat everything thats on pizzas but would never touch it if were a separate dish. Toe cleavage, cringe, I hope I am never a victim. I also hope more women (esp celebrities) will be encouraged to keep their knickers on after this. Lol about the changing pads, yup, no one cares about the teddies and butterflies on them. For me, shoes on the bed is a huge no, you walk outside with them on who knows what and then jump on the bed which you will later sleep on - unhygienic. Aw yes, poor birds. Awesome photos, loving the cool spray of paint! Thanks for your kind words...Wishing you a warm and wonderful weekend!

  3. I love your colourful makeup! I can identify with the brain not stopping and insomnia despite the fact that old codgers like me are supposed to fall asleep easily. By the numbers: Maybe 1 and 2 are some kind of weird association thing. They don't make sense to me. The Hanna Montana to Myley Cyrus may have its roots in having a show business father who sang the hit song "Achy Breaky Heart" and later played a lecherous selfish U.S. president in the movie "Love Actually". She had to try to top that. 4.: You hit the nail on the head with that one, and what's the deal with panties that are stingy with the gussets? Just as bad and making no sense at all are mens' boxer shorts. Their private parts go down one leg and they can drip pee into their shoes. Boxer shorts are next to useless as underwear. Men should wear panties. They're more comfortable and more functional. 5. That email subscription thing sounds like a lesser version of Facebook, where they can kick you out but if you want to leave they won't let you. 6. Maybe it's better that I never had to think about those things. 7. Some people wear shoes in bed? WTF! Let them use a stable stall as their guest bedroom. 8. I'm ashamed to admit I've watched television series episodes and movies with people in cemeteries: Charmed, Nikita and Johny English. 10.: As much as I'd like to believe the pidgeons are trying to emulate Forest Gump's fantasy life, I suspect the real reason is simply that they're as dumb as a pidgeon toe cleavage dripping hole.

  4. Haha, I do not get toe cleavage AT ALL! I didn't even know that was a thing! It just looks so uncomfortable...like really? Scrunching your toes into a tiny shoe? No thank you.
    Love these glittery photos!

  5. I'm pretty sure every time I see toe cleavage my feet get sympathy pains. Oh the horror. The Hannah Montana to Miley mystery confounds me as well. To be honest I forgot they were the same person until you brought it up! Funny thing, I used to be a Hannah fan in middle school!

  6. I love this series :-) I really don't get the appeal of toe cleavage either. Toes are probably one of the least attractive body parts... So the less toe is on show the better! And yeah, I also don't get that some people feel comfortable without underwear. Yuckies.

  7. I sleep in my shoes. Don't you?

    Haaaaaaaaaaa. Pigeon toe cleavage dripping hole sounds really dirty. And I guess it kind of was.

    I don't like tomatos but I like tomatos on pizza, I like tomato ketchup, I like tomato pasta sauce.. I just hate tomatos. I'm a brat.

    1. I DO sleep in my shoes, how did you know?:)

      Ok, you apparently don't like the taste of raw tomatoes, that's kind of different than cooked ones, the flavor changes a bit because of the seasoning so I kind of get that. But if you liked tomatoes on a pizza but not in pasta sauce, that would be strange. To me.:)

  8. oh my, another wonderful post. I should just scream "amen!" to everything you just said, haha. but I should point out how annoying are people who constantly think/talk/write/worry/whine about their weight. one just said via FB that her dream is to eat everything and not get fat. what's going on with people? counting calories shouldn't be your only life goal, there is so much more to life! I understand that some people have health issues with weight and I'm not talking about them. I talk about the ones who are just very shallow... and annoying! :D

  10. Fly pigeon fly! Lol. I love the color stuff on your face, whatever that is that you inflicted on your skin. It looks amazing and reminds me of the Color Run. Which gets me cracking up about number 9. Great post!

    1. When I was done and I looked at the shots, I thought of Color Run too. Especially when I tried to wipe the paint off - it's actually colored chalk and I was really dirty all over, the more I wiped, the more it got smeared everywhere.:)

  12. You know that there's a reason why the whole "I can't sleep because my brain is crazy and always motion" think happens?
    That used to happen to me all the time, and still does sometimes. But there's a way out of it, listen up: I don't know what your daily routine is, but since you work from home I guess you have the power to decide your own breaks and whatnot.
    So basically the reason why ideas come at night when you are supposed to be asleep is that is literally the first moment of the day when you shut everything else down and you are alone with yourself. That's when your creative mind starts to happen: when you sit down with yourself.
    I have noticed that since I've started to do this throughout the day, I can sleep at night. Ideas don't come at me only with the dark anymore! When I am supposed to create or I feel like creating, I always take 20 minutes "off" and sit down and just relax. Since I've started meditating things got even better! Ideas flow, and in appropriate times! I mentioned this process in this post , maybe you'll find it useful somehow!
    Btw, your bf is very patient, mine would have thrown my phone out of the window at the third time XD

    1. I really should start doing that... I'm sure it'd be better for me than sleeping pills. Or a new boyfriend.:D

  13. Love the photography - I'm assuming that's photoshop effect and not some new brand of make up I don't know about.

    1. I don't like mushrooms and I don't prefer to have them on a pizza, but if they come on a pizza, I don't mind eating it, nor in pasta - so guilty!

    2. Ooop guilty, again, of toe cleavage - my latest post is a case in point. I do find it sexy but not on me - I hate my feet and I get toe cleavage because I have horrible feet not because of the style of the shoe

    4. Completely agree with this and I asked this question just the other day, but then I can't wear thongs either eeew

    9. I'd love to have Kim K's body, but just slightly taller, but I do have a crush on Cameron Diaz's body too which is the complete opposite - go figure

    Enjoy the weekend! x

    1. I have to see this toe cleavage you're talking about.:)

      And that's actually not Photoshop, it's real. I grounded some chalks I had and mixed them with water and sprayed my face. Fun, but very very messy.:D

      Delete
    2. OMG, please accept my apologies for assuming that this was a Photoshop effect and take it as a compliment that it looks so good that i assumed only technology could do this. That is so amazing and I can see why you would have had fun with it. I appreciate the effort you put in to your photos.

      Yes that is an ankle chain I was wearing - that's how I try to pretty up my feet. Nothing too serious with why I can't post for a while, just a bit of family stuff. In fact I'm going to take that sentence off because I dont want people thinking I'm having major problems lol x

    1. Mmmmm, yes, David... He's... Yeah. He's David Beckham.:) I've just watched a behind the scenes video when he filmed his new campaign for H&M. There should be a law preventing him from wearing clothes.

  15. Ahaha Peet, actually the first point is sooo true, I am an example, I dont like artichokes but if they are in a pizza I can eat them!:P Yep, pizza makes everything better in some way. Lol for the toe cleavage, maybe is painful a bit but for me heels in general are very painful! For the 7th point I sooo agree, I think the same everytime and really think is little hygienic! Also agree with the 9th point..you are right..life isnt a casting call, though we women seem always aim for it. Pigeons dont fly anymore, at least here, they always walk and neither fear of human as before!! Looking gorgeous dear, Im enchanted by how took the pics, very cool!
    Happy Sunday! xo

    1. I really can't get that - it tastes the same!:D My boyfriend can't stand any blue cheese, but on a pizza, he loves gorgonzola bits. What's with pizza?? You can put broccoli on a pizza and all the kids will eat it, I think.:)

  22. What did you put in your face? It's normal paint? It looks great!!

    Inspiration comes when you least expect it . But yeah, the bitch often appears at bedtime . I can not rest in peace (this sounds really bad) untill doing all the things my mind wants to do.
    Obviously the pizza makes everything better!. I used to eat spinach only if they were in a pizza! And many of the accomplishments I have achieved about food (I'm little weird and I 'm averse to many things ) are due to this excellent dish .
    I don't understand about no underwear either... God! we have a snail there! Cover it!
    And pictures in baby changing tables ... I don't know , lots of moments in childhood remind in the subconscious. I mean ... Can you influence a child if the pads have pictures of bloody knives ? Nobody knows if he will be a serial murderer in the future. By the moment, manufacturers prefer no risks and put nice things on them ... just in case .
    I have a problem with cementery's photos: I see it beautiful, aesthetically pretty . I see it as something that I want to photograph , like a landscape or a sunset . Am I sick ? Probably. But I wouldn't laugh on the grave of Elvis, never!. That is really sick.
    You're good making couplets hahaha!
