Er, yes, bit late with this one.  Avalanche on the work mountain, so it was...

Sooooooooo...............

Day 3 - Eight things that annoy you

1 - noisy crowded rooms.  This makes the bar and launches at conventions, and similar, extremely trying. I like space and quiet and being able to hear what people are saying.
2 - drunken people who are possibly being insulting/rude on purpose or just accidentally booze gabby and don't mean it but how can you tell?  I can never tell.  And then I spend months over analysing and getting anxious about it afterwards.
3 - the general habit of pissing on any genre thought to be associated with da wimmins.  Especially urban fantasy. But see also romance and YA.
4 - linked to the above, when a perfectly lovely and talented chap writes a book in the aforementioned genre then the publicity/reviews are all at pains to say loudly and often how it's not like all those other icky [insert genre] books.
5 - the Exceptional Woman character who is surrounded by nothing but menfolks.  Don't get me wrong, I love a kickass lead woman as much as the next person but where are the other women in the story?  Friends, relations, random walk ons.... [livejournal.com profile] kateelliott did an excellent post on Tor.com recently that goes into this, go read!
6 - people who insist ebooks aren't proper books
7 - practical jokes
8 - having brainfog days. There's stuff needs doing! Haven't got time for brainfog days!

The meme post things:
Day 1 - Ten random facts about yourself
Day 2 - Nine things you do everyday
Day 3 - Eight things that annoy you
Day 4 - Seven fears/phobias
