1. When people use the word Calvary for cavalry. Calvary is the place where Christ was crucified. Cavalry refers to a group of soldiers (specifically ones on horseback). Get is straight, people. "Call in the calvary" makes no sense.
Oh, and Calgary is a city in Canada.
2. When people say they "could care less." If you could care less, then you actually care a little bit. The phrase is that you "couldn't care less." Meaning it's not possible for you to care any less. Couldn't.
It really makes me anxious inside when I have no blogs to check and no new email to read. I think I have a problem.
4. Big chunks of chicken. This has grossed me out since I was pregnant with Graham. Nothing sounds worse than eating a big slab of chicken breast. It has to be well-masked in some sort of overpowering sauce. But if that's the case, I figure I might as well just leave the chicken out entirely.
5. Other people watching TV in my apartment when I don't want it on. I know--I'm terrible. But I like it quiet. I don't need background noise. For example, I spent 4 hours in the kitchen on Saturday evening (making dinner, making bread, making rolls, making sauces and roasting veggies for subsequent meals), and Richard watched movies back to back for the entire 4 hours (and then some--I went to bed). I thought my head was going to explode. Last night he was looking up movies on Netflix, and I flat out said no. No way. Not on my one night at home. Not 'til I'm asleep.
6. Long lists of things that people can't stand. Ha! But really, I think I need to follow up this post with a list of things I love.
