Ten is a lot... I think that the thing I hate most is my tendency to get very angry.  I try very hard to be calm and rational with my kids and I think it is the best way to parent them.  But sometimes I lose my temper and I hate that because it sets a bad example and it constitutes failure on my part...  After that, it's petty stuff:

  1. vuvuzelas
  2. diving soccer players
  3. American football players who congratulate themselves after every play
  4. People who aren't willing to actually think about their opinions.
  5. the fact that my cat just had to have her leg amputated
  6. the fact that my dad never taught me his native language
  7. Temperatures over 90 degrees
  8. The high cost of living in Hawaii that means I can't go live there
  9. the fact that one round trip ticket to my childhood home would cost my over $2000 so I can't bring my family there
