Ways to Annoy People & Winner!!!

Yay! Today is the announcement on the winner for Gossip From The Girls Room!!! I hate to make people wait so I'll just shell it out to the world!!!

The Winner is...

Drum roll please...

Candyland!

I'll be emailing you shortly with details!

I wanted everyone to know that both Rose and I voted on our top selections and we had several favorites! Even though you didn't win Rose and I thought it would be nice to share our other favorites!

Lenny
Pat Torres
Jennie Bailey

We loved yours too and I wish I had enough money to buy you all a copy, unfortunately I don't so a shout-out will have to do!

Onward with today's post!

101 Ways to Annoy People. I can't list all 101, afterall I did just speak last week on watching your word count for each post, but I figured twenty would give you a great idea of annoying someone!

1. Practice making fax and modem noises.

2. In the memo field of all your checks, write "for sensual massage."

3. Specify that your drive-through order is "to go."

4. Learn Morse code, and have conversations with friends in public consisting entirely of "Beeeep Bip Bip Beeep Bip..."

5. If you have a glass eye, tap on it occasionally with your pen while talking to others.

6. Amuse yourself for endless hours by hooking a camcorder to your TV and then pointing it at the screen.

I'm still trying to get out of vacation mode and back to blogging! Should happen soon, but right now I NEED to get some writing done!!!

Why am I not surprised that candyland came up with the best gossip? Congrats!

And I agree I am so writing personal massage on my check memos...these were too funny!

salarsenッ said...

Ooh, I've been wanting to get that book. Yay, Candyland!! Congrats. Great blog, BTW, Jen. I'm FINALLY following you. Don't know how that oversight occurred???

Chris said...

Love the modem idea. I like to eat like seven pieces of bazooka bubble gum and chew on it like cud.

Jaydee Morgan said...

Congrats to Candyland.

And yes, someone making modem noises would drive me insane in record time.

Meredith said...

Haha, I love this. I'm definitely specifying that my order is to-go in the drive-thru from now on. Good luck on the writing!

Teenage Bride said...

Laura Marcella said...

Congrats to Candyland!!!

I love #3!

Sandy Shin said...

Congratulations, Candyland!

And good luck with writing, Jen!

Bee said...

Congrats, Candyland!

And that's just way funny :D

Angie said...

congrats Candyland! #3 rings a bell with me because I had so many people do that during my Burger King days. The most annoying thing in the world? Guys who jiggle their leg in the desk next to you. I had one do this during a GRE test once and I swear I was going to hit him over the head. I also think he cost me about 100 points on the test. I was so annoyed!

LTM said...

love those "ways to annoy people" posts... I saw a good one the other day... and now I don't remember.

Could that be a way? :D

congrats to Candy~ have a great weekend! <3

Belle said...

Love the "for sensual massage" idea!

Clara said...

Congrats to the winners!

And omg, you got me at the first. Im so going to make fax noises wuile my husband watches football!

about the glass eye: laughed my arse of!

C.E. said...

awesome ideas! Where does one aquire a glass eye...?

VICTORIA SAAVEDRA said...

Congrats Candyland!

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

Just curious: Are you posting for the blogfest you entered?

Kelly Dexter said...

I love number three, and five is absolutely creepy but hilarious.

Sara B. Larson said...

Ew, I knew someone with a glass eye and that would have freaked me out. Maybe not as much as when he took it out and messed around with it. Or when he licked salt--I'm not kidding, he had a block of salt that he sat there licking. Ah, the memories of middle school. Weirdness.

Anyway, great ideas! ha ha ;)

Janet Johnson said...

Fun contest! Congrats Candace!

thebookfairyhaven said...

*grins* Had a good giggle a the list of things to annoy people with. I reckon I'd probably do all of them. :) Hope you have a great Friday!

Jennie Bailey said...

I'm honored to be picked a favorite and I don't mind buying my own copy at all!!! I can hardly wait!

Congrats to Candyland!!

E. Elle said...

I just made a check out yesterday for one of my student loans. I wish I'd had this post then so that I could write "for sensual massage" in the memo!

Ah, yes. Money well spent.

I need to get some writing done, too! We should have a writing party.

And no, I don't think that would defeat the purpose. ;o)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I like #2!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Yay, Candace!!!! :D

Nicole Zoltack said...

Congrats, Candyland!

I should be writing too. Both my story and blog posts for next week...

Mimi said...

He he!
My favourite is the "to go", but I hardly ever go to drive-in so will probably have forgotten it by the time I'm next there!
Happy writing!

Alexandra Crocodile said...

Oh, I squirmed at the glass eye one. Horrid!

DLCurran said...

Glass eye, huh? I'm thinking that's a relatively narrow segment of the population... but my brother-in-law has one. I'll let him know and pass on the reactions ;)

Theresa Milstein said...

I knew I wasn't going to win once I knew how you felt about Bieber.

"To go" at a drive thru - that is funny. As for my checks, I always put that in the memo section.

Terry Stonecrop said...

Haha, I love the sensual massage!

Write on!!!

Jemi Fraser said...

Love it :) Thanks for the smiles - enjoy the weekend!

The Golden Eagle said...

LOL. I would certainly find someone tapping their glass eye with a pen annoying.

Agnes said...

Haha, I've actually done #3.

Lynn said...

These are great Jen. Perfect for characters too.

Jane Holland said...

I almost wish I had a glass eye after this.

J.

Lynnette Labelle said...

The Words Crafter said...

OMG, tapping on a glass eye would freak me out!

I tried to read your new post but blogger tells me the page isn't there...

A really fun read, btw!

Bekah said...

Very funny and congrats! "Wanna know what the most annoying sound in the world is?"

Lynda Young said...

#5 made me lol

Misha said...

hahaha those are good, but nothing beats pressing every single floor on a sky-scraper elevator and running out just before the door closes...

Anne said...

Congrats Candyland!
