Peeves & Pleasures

You’ve got JJ posting today.  As you know, The Boss is on stress-rest (she’s not looking too good, poor thing).

Yes, I confess, Rey’s post re “favs” got me thinking . . . why not share things we dislike and like, our current pet peeves and pleasures?  It was a great exercise; it had us thinking (focusing) really hard.

Here you have them, my friends, the Triple Threat Investigation Agency trio’s bugbears and blisses . . .

Peeves

JJ:

♦  bombastic, verbose persons who love the sound of their own voices . . . blab a lot, but say little     ♦  people (businesses) so desirous of profit and power that critical concerns—like climate change—are scoffed at and shelved    ♦  abusers of all kinds

Rey:

♦  whiners and wieners . . . folks who fret and complain, but won’t do anything to change their circumstances    ♦  people who don’t/won’t listen, be it friends or family, politicians or superstars    ♦  creamed corn—someone served it the other day and, gawd, I nearly gagged (my mom and aunts had a thing for it, so it was always at family dinners)

Linda:

♦  fakers and liars—I’ve no patience for phony people in any shape, size, or form    ♦  fake news when it truly is fake news, as propagated by those who like to spin real news for their own benefit  <LOL>   ♦  garbage here, there and everywhere; is it really that difficult to place it in a bin?

Pleasures

JJ:

♦  volunteering time and/or money—what a truly gratifying pleasure    ♦  Hawaii . . . it’s in my heart and soul    ♦  animals/pets . . . and their wonderful (!) unconditional love

Rey:

♦  acting . . . still keen on it (but being a private eye is better)    ♦  catching the bad guy, speaking of being a P.I.—there’s nothing like helping put a criminal behind bars    ♦  pizza . . . still love it and there’s no better way to end a trying day than with a [huge] slice of heaven

Linda:

♦  relaxing and spa retreats are definite [hedonistic] pleasures    ♦  hiking and walking, and being active (fitness and health are everything)    ♦  reading, writing, and blogging

What about yours?  Ever give thought to what floats your boat . . . and sinks it?

From the gals at the TTIA, have an amazing weekend!

Author: tylerus

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
