First up, y’all should have been jamming to a little C+C Music Factory when you saw the title. And if you’re not, well, see the first thing that makes me go hmmmm. But enough about my possibly bad taste in music! The world is on fire and democracy is ending, so let’s go out with a laugh. I mean that’s better than tears – right?
I Just Don’t Understand …
Bored and possibly a little hungry, I started thinking about all the things that confused me, not necessarily irritated me to the point that my head might explode, but things that just made me go hmmmmmm.
Classic Music? Uh-uh. Good Music
Let’s go back to good ‘ol C+C Music Factory, a band (loosely) who knew how to make you sweat now (from dancing people, stop being perverts). 😀 Now imagine my surprise that all my favorite songs and bands from the 80s and even the 90s are now “classic” music. Hearing NKOTB, TLC, Madonna, Janet Jackson, GNR, Poison and more being played on “classic” rock or pop stations just makes the old coot in me need a nap.
And yes, I will keep saying “classic” with quotation marks because it seems surreal that the songs from my teens/early 20s are now old fart music.
Car Wash Big Ass Puddle
So I live in Minnesota now. It snows; they put salt on the road.; cars get super messy. You wash your car knowing that it will get dirty again but do it anyway because you already chose to live in Minnesota during the Winter so obviously you are, perhaps, not brilliant. 😀 Yup, just insulted myself. Anyhoo – I washed my car on Sunday and there was a big ass puddle right in front of the car wash. My clean car didn’t even last 30 seconds.
Max Sheds Terribly … in the WINTER
It’s cold here. Okay, fine. It was 40 degrees on Sunday but it’s going to be in the 20s all week. It’s winter and cold and Max sheds like crazy. Wait? What? One part of that sentence does not make sense. Winter. Yes. Cold. Yes. Cat shedding. NOOOOOOOOO. He sheds more now than he does in the Spring in LA. How is this even freaking possible?
30 Minutes, 16 Minutes Meals … All Lies
I consider myself to be a good cook. Definitely not a novice. What drives me absolutely nuts though, is how recipes say it takes X time to prepare. I call B.S. because it almost always takes longer. Like a lot longer. Sure, you can make 30 minute meals, Rachel, or 16 minute meals, Ree, but let’s get real: You got people helping you. I know because you freaking show behind-the-scene clips in your show, Rachel.
You Forget All the Things that Make You Go Hmmmm
I had a list. In my head. I know; I know. I should know by now that I can’t recall things for longer than 2 seconds … on a good day. But still. This is an annoyance that makes me go hmmmm and curse and then forget why I was cursing. Please tell me I’m not the only one who this happens to regularly.
Your turn. Tell me what’s makes you go hmmmmm.

LOL – i’ve done the car wash puddle thing – that’s aggravating.
Classic music… my heart just hurt a little.
I’ll add my Hmmm to that thinking – what happened to all the hair band music???? The great 80’s rock? You dont hear those on ‘classic (Ouch) channels & why is no one making that sort of music anymore????? Slowly killing Bon Jovi one KPop at a time
It’s so annoying, especially since I got the “premium” car wash for some dumb reason. 😀 Yeah, I know. When did we get that old that our high school music is classic? Nope. Nope. NOPE! And it is weird how there are no more hair (or even real rock) bands these days. So sad.
Yeah, the whole classic rock thing now is just mind-boggling. How is Pearl Jam considered to be classic rock now, when I distinctly remember wearing out their “Ten” album when I was in high school??
And high school was like last year, right? RIGHT? 😀
I never wash my car. It makes K go nuts. I get it, though. The salt is TERRIBLE for cars so giving it a good wash on a sunny day makes sense for us midwesterners/northerners. Lol.
Things that make me go hmmm…. Hmm…. I can’t think of anything right now. Ha!
I’m so use to California where it would last for longer than 30 seconds. LOL! Honestly, I knew it would dirty quickly but I did expect to get out of the parking lot with it still clean!
