5 Things that are Overrated

It’s been ages since I made a list. So here it is, the five most overrated things I can think of right now.

  1. Ramen. In its defence, it did come out of a packet and didn’t have English cooking instructions. I still wanted to feel like a ninja while I ate it. Or at least like an animated character in a popular Japanese TV series. Neither happened. In anticipation for the day that it does, I am obsessed with Ramen, but it doesn’t make my hot list.

    Ramen will probably drop off all my lists really soon
  2. Twilight. Badly written books translated into worse movies. Teenagers now think vampires sparkle and have self-control. I would much rather watch a D-grade rendition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula in a sauna than sit through the A-listed Eclipse in an air-conditioned cinema. And I have less than no interest in reading about the cotton count on Edward’s sweater.

    Vampires are all about cuddles afterall
  3. Having a full time job in a recession. Yes, I’m really lucky to be employed and even more lucky that my job is stable. But I can think of a lot of things better to do with my time than sit at a desk for 10 hours of the day. Like hugging an angry porcupine.

    Oh, hurray - there goes my life.
  4. Having my car washed for me once a week. But only because in his thoroughness Edmore ‘re-adjusts’ my side mirrors. It drives me *#%@&%$ nuts! Just like the bits of lint on the bonnet.

    Clean car vs annoying lint = I don't know what I want anymore
  5. Jelly beans. These are exciting for about two minutes. Then they roll all over the place, fall on the ground and contain so much artificial rubbish that they make you want to vomit rainbows.

    Don't be fooled - they look friendly, but they will hurt you

    I have to agree the re-adjustment of mirrors after the wash is super irritating. It gets worse when you drive out the basement on wash day and immediately get hit by flags of rain. Those are the times that I need to be reminded why we bother to wash our cars in the first place. Actually I still don’t know why I bother.
