"It certainly does suck"

A graphic I created that sucks so I included it for that reason. It's late, dammit!

Things I Suck at:


I suck at... Spending less than 4 hours writing, editing and sourcing/creating images for a blog post.

I suck at... Hearing what someone is saying to me when I'm reading.

I suck at... Taking less than 100 photos of any subject, ever.

I suck at... Cleaning.

I suck at...
Whistling. Can't do it, no matter how hard I try.

I suck at... Figuring out how I know someone. I have an excellent memory for faces. The only problem with that is that I recognise the guy that sold me my first pack of cigarettes but I can't figure out or remember that that is why I recognise his face and spend the next few hours wracking my brains and getting more and more annoyed at not being able to remember how I know his face!

I suck at... Not writing ridiculously long sentences (see previous point of suckage).

I suck at... Writing short blog posts (most of the time).

I suck at... Brevity. The whole why use 10 words when 1 will do. I don't just use ten, I use ten thousand!*

I suck at... Doing my make-up.

I suck at... Fashion.

I suck at... Replying to messages.

I suck at... Not back-seat driving Dave.

I suck at... Keeping my temper.

I suck at... Not yelling.

I suck at... Winning gracefully and not being super-competitive to the point of being a bitch when playing trivia games.

I suck at... Reading slowly.

I suck at... Not using a Friends quote for most situations in life.

I suck at... Not using a quote from Wayne's World when a Friends quote isn't suitable.

I suck at... Going to bed at a decent hour

I suck at... Driving around Parramatta. Seriously, I have an uncanny sense of direction 9 times out of 10, it's almost like a 6th sense. But ask me to drive around Parramatta and it's like I've entered a magnetic field and my internal compass has gone to shit.

I suck at... Remembering not to swear in front of the girls while driving.

I suck at... Many things. So many more than I have the time or the brainpower at this late hour to list.

So tell me (and the other Lizards of The Lounge), what do you suck at?
Bonus points if you can tell me the movie the title of this post comes from and what it is said in relation to.

*This point is obviously irrelevant and proof of the point I tried to make in earlier points. And this little addition is also helping prove that point. There just aren't enough points in the world to explain how much I waffle. I need more points, dammit!

  2. Oh, I suck at driving out of home bush (Olympic park) your description is perfect! I go there all the time for sport, concerts. Expos, races, parties and I still can't get out of there without one wrong turn!

  4. I suck at the faces thing too - I think it's some kind of dyslexia! I also suck at finding my way out of Ikea, I cant go there without a helper or I'd be trapped forever.

  5. I suck at most of these too - but I also suck at putting my clothes away in the drawer once the washing has been done! I know you're so awesome at SO many things though :)

  6. Wayne's World! I once lost my car at Penrith Plaza and seriously, I'll never forget the trauma! I also suck at the random curse words in front of the kids... Are we related? The only upshot of the swearing is that it's made my kids somehow think that swearing is the worst thing in the world. Win! Cheers for linking and I love the disaster graphic! ;o)

  7. My husband busts me for number two all the time. He takes it as a sign I don't listen, it just takes a moment or two for my head to switch from one gear to another! I like to think he is rude for interrupting in the first place!

  8. Great list! I can neither whistle or drive well but I still drive everybody nuts trying :D.

  9. Love this list! I suck at quite a few of those tasks.

  10. I suck at anything involving spatial relations - think Lego, parallel parking, assembling furniture...

  11. We have many similar suckinesses (?)
    I suck at putting myself to bed. I suck at not interrupting a person when they are speaking. I suck at growing things.

  12. I suck at not getting off the internet. I get sucked in too easy.

  13. YES! I'm with you all the way on not being able to hear anybody when I am reading. Hubster takes it personally but it's just the way it is. When I read, I'm in another world!

  14. I pretty much suck at all at these with an added I suck at remembering my kids names when they are in trouble :/

  15. Oh yes, I suck at whistling too. I have never been able to do it and any attempt is hilarious for my husband - a veteran whistler and I always suck at remembering names. One of my biggest fears is that when I finally go to a bloggy event I will not be able to remember anyones name despite reading their blog daily!!! Eeeekkk... I also suck at the not yelling thing. Surely the biggest battle for Mummy's a like out there?

  16. I hate when someone looks familiar but you just can't put your finger on where you know them from. I also suck at short sentences..I blame my year 11 English teacher who introduced us to grandiloquent language and we had to write an essay using it.
