What I Hated the Least Today 182/365: Toilet Paper (Yup)

Yup. I’m blogging about toilet paper. Mostly because I can. And because I can’t think of anything more savoury to blog about. I’m a toilet paper enthusiast. I measure the quality of places by the presence/absence of toiler paper. My best workplace was a place where there was always toilet paper. Every single time. There

What I Hated the Least Today 181/365: Stet, Let It Stand

I’m trying to learn to become more of a stet person. Stet, let it stand, is a proofreading mark indicating that a correction should be ignored and the text should be left as it is. Letting anything as it is comes across as an extremely difficult skill to me as someone who, even when she’s

What I Hated the Least Today 180/365: No Foodie

I blogged about my comparatively successful ongoing effort to lose weight before, always with the cautionary warning that you don’t try it at home. To further my message that slimming is not worth it, here’s a decisively anti-foodie post. Please be warned that the following contains graphic images: extremely bad snaps of rather bad food. I’m a

What I Hated the Least Today 179/365: Night Owl

I’m a convinced night owl. (Isn’t night owl a tautology? Not if there is a day owl, but is there such a thing?) That means, among other dis/advantages, that I get in contact with early birds. (Again, is it a tautology or is there a late bird? And isn’t late bird an owl?) I constantly stumble upon early

What I Hated the Least Today 178/365: Old WordPress Editor

I’m all for innovations and no adherent of If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I’m disappointed with myself that I still use the old WordPress editor because I can’t deal with the new and improved one. My general complaint about the new editor (which is now getting old, when you think about it) is its

What I Hated the Least Today 177/365: Sounds

Do you ever think of the sounds your home makes when it’s otherwise quiet? I don’t, unless I spend a night out of home and am confronted with an entirely different set of sounds. Moving homes a year and half ago also made me more attuned to the peculiarities of soundtracks of places, so to say. My current

What I Hated the Least Today 176/365: Summer

It’s the season of the year again when it’s getting hot around here. I withstand the heat better than the cold. Rumour has it that my skin is made of asbestos (in other words, that I’m a thick-skinned monster) because I like my shower so hot that it would cause most other people third-degree burns. Rumour

What I Hated the Least Today 175/365: Recycling

I recycle like I plan to live on this earth forever or like I want to save the planet. As to the former, I won’t continue to live even through my offspring because I don’t intend to reproduce; as to the latter, I don’t suffer from a saviour complex, and let’s be realistic. Despite my relentless scepticism, I
