      Yikes! I snore but I keep trying to stop! Please don't hurt me, I have cookies!

        Bring me the cookies and we'll talk.

        My brother snored and we shared a room. It got to the point where I always got in trouble because I'd smack him until he stopped. Then he'd yell, mom & dad would come in and I'd be chastised. I got a hideaway bed and slept in the garage--- best sleep I'd ever had up to that point

        I have tried every ear plug imaginable! To this day, I can't drown out the noise.

    Wafflecheese, interesting name, doesn't go with your face, or your avatar's face....pet peves?   hmmmmmm?   Let's go back to your name.....is the Cheese in all the little square depressions of the waffles or are the waffles setting on a bed of melted cheese?  Or is there sprinkled cheese over the waffles?

    hmmmmmm. interesting????

      No joke, I used to eat egg, cheese, and waffle sandwiches for breakfast. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good. (only butter though)

      And, to answer your question, yes, that's really me, and it is cheese shaped like a waffles.

    I hate it when people eat noisily. Or chew with their mouths open. Or talk with their mouths full. Any continuous or repetitive noise, like dogs barking or katydids screeching. I hate it when people roll their eyes at me. Man, that makes me furious!

    I can't stand it when my husband messes with the volume of the car stereo.  He knows I keep it only on prime numbers, usually 17.  He loves to reach over and turn it up or down by one number, just to mess with me.

    Sorry, I cannot get past the name WaffleCheese....please how can anyone who looks like you name yourself after some really strange (albeit delicious) sandwich?  Why not just name yourself delicious,  no I guess you would believe people would think you presumptious....

    Ok I need a few minutes to adjust my mind...when I call you wafflecheese I'll have to think of blueberry waffles to include those eyes staring out of the computer...

    my pet peeves, Wafflecheese, are....uh!    Gorgeous young men with disturbing names....sorry...I just cannot help myself!  You could be poetic, or inspired, or deeply sentimental, but what your name reflects is food, which could be ok in certain circumstances, but your name is the wrong kind of food for poetry...it's one of those pet peeves that no one can do anything about....I guess I'll call you WC, would that be ok with you?  wink

    Eating noises are big pet peeves of mine.  The gum-chewing/snapping thing is enough to make me want to kill too.  Big band music, "real" jazz music (at least most of it), a whole lot of country western music, and music that is nothing but a couple of notes - all things that make me want to kill, as well.   

    As for emoticons....

        Lisa HWposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Deborah-Lynn, if you go to any site that lets you have codes for "smileys"/emoticons "for your website or forums" you can add whichever ones you like.  These come from www.planetsmilies.net (where you select from a category, click on the one you like, and copy the code).  On that site there are two codes.  You would want the one "for forums" (the one has [img] in it twice.  In order to put them on here you need to copy the first [img] (including the brackets), and everything between the first [img] and the last one (again, including the brackets).  You then can paste what you've copied, preview your post here (to make sure you got all the characters and no extras), and there you go.  I added a couple of basic smileys from the ones you get if you click on "formatting tips", just under the window where you type your forum post on HubPages.

        If you paste the codes in on one line the pictures will be in a horizontal row.  If you do "carriage return"/"enter" your pictures will be on their own lines.  You can add spaces (or whatever) to get them to look the way you want them to look.  (The partiers came, I think, from the "party" category, if I recall correctly.  The band came from "music".  I don't know where the smokers came from, but there's nothing like smoking smiley faces.  lol  (sending you a quick message through your profile in case you don't return to this thread...)

    Hmmm let's see pet peeves. Smacking your mouth when you eat, Dogs that are not well behaved, children who are not well behaved in public. Controlling people, Large women who insist on wearing spandex. people who say know what I mean after every statement. Teenagers with smart mouths. People who drive and talk on their cell phones especially when I am a passenger in their vehicle. Women who try to act dumb on purpose to attract attention.

          Well I suppose the lip smacking thing would be taken care of with some lessons in table manners. The dog thing, I don't know some good personal attention to training the dog when you get it.
        The cell phone thing, I would say making it illegal to drive and talk would help. I guess good personal attention to your kids would help the misbehaving children in public thing. Large women in spandex, I suppose will never go away. As well as the women who act dumb on purpose to gain attention, will never go away. Teenagers with smart mouths need to know that there are consequences for their mouths.

    My pet peeves are quite a lot...dare I list them all? Okay, just a few...all the noises that one makes when he's eating (slurping, chewing loudly, gulping, utensils when they touch your teeth)...and don't even go on chewing with your mouth open! What else? Spitting anywhere (totally gross and it's fairly common over here!). Typos, so it goes without saying I hate those weird text messages with alternate spellings, one can use the dictionary option anyway.

    I have a lot more but I'll stop right there.
