I decree

I think you're overlooking the real criminals—the people who have a music playlist that loads automatically and starts playing horribly annoying songs.

(I wanted to post about that on my blog, but some of the people who read it do that, so thanks for the opportunity to get that off my chest.)

But what if the music that is being blasted is the coolest music you've ever heard? Then you would be thankful to that person right?

Just kidding. I have been meaning to take my music off of auto play for a while now.

Thanks stranger.

ha ha! Yeah... i hate to say it but I completely agree. There's something about having to listen to other people's music against my will, even if it is a good song. Fortunately i have the will and ability to hit the pause or mute button immediately.

That's it. I'm taking my music off right now. I used to use it just as a way for me to listen to my favorite music while at the computer of cleaning, but now I've discovered Pandora, so no more blog playlist. I vote for doing away with people who write liKe tHis bEcAusE iT's jUsT sO CuTe!!! Gag, blech.

Sorry for inadvertently hijacking the discussion. But I'm glad others feel the same way.

I just like having all my favorite music in one place too. Maybe I need to check out that Pandora. I guess I'm stuck in the 2007s.

(I thought I already wrote this, but it never showed up, so I'm trying again. Please ignore if it's a repeat!)

I think people who overuse the word "cute"-- especially if they're talking about their own children-- need to be sent a thesaurus. It's really annoying, not to mention boring. Can't they think of any other words at all?

I'm with you Joel about the music. probably because I'm usually at work while checking blogs, so then MY COVER IS RUINED! And for the multi-covered words, I have a friend who is a serious offender. She does it sooo much. Not sure how to break it to her...

stage an intervention. It may be the only way. Tell her if she wants some colorful language, I have some suggestions.
