  • Doritos
  • casseroles made with cream of anything soup
  • baked beans
  • Jell-O salads
  • salads with marshmallows
  • Circus Peanut candy
  • Wonder Bread
Occupations in my hell:
  • proctologist
  • endodontist

Only activities allowed in my hell:
  • undergoing mammography
  • cleaning the basement
  • listening to Rush Limbaugh
  • taking children to McDonald's
  • taking children to Chuck E. Cheese
  • going to the Secretary of State's office for a new license picture
  • having teeth cleaned. Or drilled.
  • being weighed
  • going to a benefit or wedding with a loud band, bad food, and a bunch of total strangers at your table--and then a few of the guys start smoking cigars
  • taking the car in for service and having to wait in a waiting room with a television blaring
  • watching shopping channels
  • long turbulent flights with screaming children and someone using a barf bag nearby


  1. Oh, I am so with you on the seared tuna. What is with the cooked on the outside and mushy raw on the inside? That's not cuisine, that's a mistake. Throw some fennel on your list and it pretty much matches mine. I might eat the beans, if hell is a barbecue.

  2. Heh, I thought you said, 'Long turbulent fights with screaming children and someone using a barf bag nearby'.

    I was all 'fighting and screaming would be turbulent, yes, but why in God's name is there someone using a barf bag??'

    Then, I reread and felt like a nitwit!

    So everything is back to normal now.

  3. I'm so glad chocolate wasn't anywhere on that list. :)

  4. As re: music, you just don't know what's good.

    Good call on the huzbins though.

  5. Tsk! Just because I don't like Metal. Or Chicago.

    Wait until you get to the entry where I admit that I don't drink vodka.
