80 Post Challenge – Post 10

What is the most annoying sound you have ever heard?

-_- There are a couple of things I can think of, but, if I need to narrow it down to one thing (no more cheating, Illy!) then I guess its this.
(I can’t believe I’m actually going to give you a link for this!)

Yeah. This, when it came on, drove me bonkers. There was nothing funny about it, nothing amusing about it, instead it just made me want to stab people with forks. It set my teeth on edge. GAH!

Then there was all the hype from parents freaking out because the stupid little frog had his penis showing. Then they either blotted it out in the adverts (and made it worse in my opinion) or pixilated it and brought even more attention to the area.

I mean who’s idea was this?! I’m sure someone will be able to tell me, but, actually I don’t really want to know. I don’t actually care. That thing was just one of those annoying little gimmicks that went on and on forever and just refuses to die a death. I hate it!

*huff huff huff huff*


And do you know what bothers me more? Its not just the noise that’s annoying – although it is! Is the fact that someone out there was making money from it! I hate it (really hate it and sometimes even feel personally offended by) people who make money out of stupid or annoying things. The crazy frog is one of them. The cheeky girls are another. Most reality TV shows fall under the same category for me, as does football. Not that I dislike the sport in of itself, but the politics and hype and drama around it gets the hell on my nerves when it should just be around playing the game. You never see golfers or cricketers acting like that!

Anyway, I just need to mention something else; do you know something else that bothered me, as recently as this morning? I was rolling over in bed. I’d slung my arm over my partner – as you do – snuggled into his back… and then… sat bolt upright when in the tree right outside the window a magpie started calling. You know that horrible grating sort of cawwing sound. Ugh.

So I tried to ignore it. Oh no… that didn’t work. And would this magpie go the hell away? Nuh-uh! I went to the loo, hoping that by the time I’d done that and come back it would be gone, but no. Not only was it there, but it had a friend and they were talking to each other across the window.

I just walked out and crawled into the bed in the spare room. Much quieter in there!

Not that noises like that often keep me awake, but that was 7am on a day that I was supposed to be having a lie in. Once I’m awake and the sun is streaming in its bloody hard to get back to sleep again. So I needed quiet.

But that was a pretty annoying noise too. Yikes!

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.
