I was thinking this morning of the things I really dislike, and it struck me just how many of them involved sweets. So for your pleasure, I present:

TEN THINGS THE MOKO HATES (in no particular order)

1. Kinder Eggs – Like the blonde, big-boobed girl from your high school class, how long can Kinder Eggs ride on cute? One day people will realize your eggs are sagging and your chocolate is mediocre.
2. Going to the hairdresser – Aside from having to sit still for two hours, I also hate that wash basin thing that puts your neck out of whack for a week afterwards.
3. Sugarfree Mentos – These things are horrible. They taste like Mentos with a shot of Diet Coke--the worst drink on the planet.
4. Olives – Yeah, I know this one doesn’t make sense. I have no excuse.
5. Chocolate bars with nuts – Nothing should get in the way of chocolate. Ever.
6. Natto – I think disliking fermented soybeans is pretty self-explanatory.
7. Going to the bathroom – Sleep is not the greatest thief of one's life. It’s going to the bathroom. And unlike sleeping, you have to take off half of your clothes to do this. So annoying.
8. Weddings - Why don't the young lovebirds put as much thought into sweet nibbles and yummy cake as they do into seating arrangements? And jeez those ceremonies are long.
8. Standing up – There is nothing worse than having to stand for more than five minutes in the same place. That’s why I don’t go to rock shows, political rallies, or tai chi classes.

That's not 10, it's 9. And the last two are both numbered 8! :)

picky picky! : )

(yeah, i wrote this on a small screen and didn't bother to re-read.)

as for the lack of a number 10, well, just add Diet Coke--it's so bad it deserves to be on every anti-list out there.

I can't agree with you more on #5. I *especially* hate it when the nuts get caught in my teeth to boot! Argh! Double annoyance!
