The List Volume LXXXVI
Written by: WhyDid | The List

the fluI knew I’d eventually be reminded what the perks of living on the West Coast were.  This week was that time.  With temperatures in the pre-teens and a beast of a flu running rampant, I started to reassess my living situation (don’t worry, it’ll only last a week or so– it’s the flu talking).  I’ve been radio silent for the last couple of days because I’ve basically only made it out of bed to let my dog out and make another NyQuil cocktail.  So, even though influenza has become the “trendy excuse” for a brush off, I’m not really blowing you off, I’m actually sick.

  1. new york snowHaving the flu and being stuck in bed with nothing to do.
  2. People bailing last minute on your birthday.
  3. Below freezing temperatures.  When I can feel the bones in my face freezing, it’s too cold.  Looks like Kanye found a cure.
  4. Public urination.  I’m not talking about bums or campfires.  I’m talking about the young lady in a sequin skirt who couldn’t hold it til she got home.
  5. People who think your dreams are crazy.
  1. sunny los angelesPeople who are crazy enough to believe in their dreams.
  2. Having the people who matter celebrate your birthday with you.
  3. An apple cutter/corer/wedger.  Seriously, never an excuse to not eat an apple a day with one of these guys (mine’s a turtle).
  4. Having a dog for a live-in feet warmer (especially when you’re sick).
  5. Having the flu and not needing to make any excuses for not getting out of bed.

How many calories do you think coughing burns?

Weekend Playlist: Mad About You
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

people i want to punch in the faceI try and practice an insane amount of self control.  And for the most part, I remain cool as a cucumber, but every now and then I just want to scream at people, dropkick inanimate objects, and punch the hell out of a pillow.  That is when it is truly necessary to have a playlist full of songs as angry as I am.  (A punching bag never hurt either).

workout playlist

Conveniently, this playlist doubles as a fantastic workout playlist… and everyone knows that looking good is the best revenge.

P.S. I do not in any way, shape, or form, condone violence (except against pillows).  There are far more clever ways to take out your frustrations.

The List Volume LXVI
Written by: WhyDid | The List

bad tan lines

While I’ve sort of been living in a bubble for the past few weeks, watching only reruns of Sex and the City and drinking copious amounts of wine, that hasn’t stopped annoying things from popping up in my otherwise pleasant life.

  1. Having to put on a brave face when all you really want to do is hide under the covers.  For a year.
  2. Shaving.
  3. Forgetting why you stopped wearing a certain pair of shoes and then wearing them only to remember exactly why you stopped wearing them.
  4. Pork chops.
  5. Being completely and utterly blindsided.
  6. Realizing you are out of toilet paper when it’s just a little too late.
  7. Waking up in the middle of the night with the TV still on and hearing the Unsolved Mysteries theme song.
  8. The film on your teeth after eating Greek yogurt.  Feels like the next time you open your mouth it’s going to look like a sheet of Saran Wrap.
  9. Kanye West again showing at Paris Fashion Week.  If New York is good enough for Michael Kors, it should be (more than) good enough for you.
  10. Kony.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some SATC to get back to.

The List Volume LXIII
Written by: WhyDid | The List

Just as time marches on, so do the lists.  You didn’t think that 2012 would be any less annoying than years past, did you?  With the onslaught of new reality TV, celebutards, and fashion delinquents, the best is yet to come.  Bring it on 2012!

  1. Bubble Lounge.  This may very well be one of the worst places in New York City.
  2. Rainboots in the airport.  Call me an optimist, but I think you, me and Terminal B are in the clear as far as rain showers are concerned. 
  3. Magazine covers that are so photoshopped I have to actually read the headlines to figure out who the covergirl is.
  4. People who post photos of other people who could look like them (with enough photo filters and if I squint my eyes) and pretend it’s them.  That’s just weird.
  5. Kanye West.  Just please stop talking… and tweeting.
  6. People who think they are funny.  Mostly because people who think they’re funny usually aren’t.
  7. Season 5 of Jersey Shore.  Seriously, are we still doing this?  Is there even anything left to smush?
  8. Can we stop speaking like valley girls and using abbreviations for everything?  OMG, that’s AMAZE, obvs!
  9. There are so many problems with this video (and yes, it’s for real).  First of which: muffins and cupcakes are not the same thing. (Thanks, Cat).
  10. ESPN commentators apparently need some geography lessons… not to mention some practice in current events seeing as they don’t know where West Virginia is, nor do they know who Michelle Obama is.  As a matter of fact, all on air media personalities should probably do their homework before speaking. Don’t just talk for the sake of talking.

The List Volume LVI

There’s quite a bit of time spent on WhyDid helping the ladies with the do’s and don’ts of fashion… but it occurred to me last night (while watching an especially offensive episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker) that we need to direct some of this professional fashion help towards our male counterparts.  It also occurred to me that many of you men actually think you have  the slightest clue as to how to dress yourselves.  Welp, newsflash: You don’t.  Just ask Kanye, who took the liberty of deciding he could show his “collection” at Paris Fashion Week.  Oops!

So, this is dedicated to you, brothers Cruz and the rest of you gentlemen out there making our eyes hurt.  (I’ll include photos as to be very explicit).

 

  1. Manpris.  Yes, those are exactly what you’re thinking. 
  2. Sleeveless hoodies. 
  3. Anything with embellishment.  Good rule of thumb: If you’ve seen it on The Jersey Shore, it for sure shouldn’t see it in your closet. 
  4. Fishnet tank tops. Ahem, Jared Leto. 
  5. If you must wear a blazer with your jeans (and it seems you all must), please, for heaven’s sake, do not wear sky blue baggy jeans with it.  Dark and tailored denim, fellas. 
  6. Button down shirts… only buttoned with one button.  There are multiple buttons for multiple reasons.  Use them. 
  7. Knit hats and/or scarves at the beach or with a tank top, swim trunks, or anything else that could be worn in July. 
  8. Jewelry other than a wedding band. 
  9. T-shirts that could be mistaken for your girlfriend’s in the wash. Tight, deep V, etc. ….  Please reference SNL’s Dangerously Deep V -
  10. Skinny jeans.  I’m so uncomfortable with these for so many reasons.  One being that I don’t need to know that your thighs are smaller than mine. 

xx,
WhyDid
