Sorry. There's just no way I could face something that looks like that, especially not at breakfast time.  Then again, I can't face most things at breakfast time, except coffee.

Oh I just have one pet peeve. I really can't stand people who are annoyed by either of the following: empty profiles, 'unreadable' fonts, unmatching body parts, flexi prims, AO-less avis, jazz hands,

DJs/hosts teleport inviting their "friends"

I'm not apportioning blame for what's been going on in this forum recently, because that's one thing that appears to start a thread on its downward spiral. Like many of us here - I am absolutely

You don't like sausage gravy? Shame. Means more for us though! \o/

Scandinavian biscuits don't really have a USA counterpart that *I* know about.

   Well, we do like scones ...

That's something I could go for, along with the coffee, as long as it isn't one of those squishy things that are sometimes passed off as scones here in the USA.  A proper scone with clotted cream or butter would go down nicely.

@Selene Gregoire fine. Just this once. The photo of blocked folks was in this thread, scroll up and down as necessary.

Various other things go back to my reason for my adorable, Official Flounce™ in the "photo" thread, which also requires a few pages of scrolling back and a tiny bit of scrolling forward

The beaver/beever stuff goes back to this post, but scrolling back because I was on an epic roll... 

 

more scrolling back and forward to get context

And I'm sure there is more that I'm forgetting, but that gets you to the gist of most of it. Just about every link I gave though is either at the middle or the end of things, though.

And there IS an end to things, as far as I'm concerned. Doesn't seem to be for others, but meh...

From now on though, if you need to keep up ya can't block people, even with peeking... :)

And this is why I get on block lists in the first place. :::the horror:::

And this is why we can't have nice things.

I had my first clotted cream when visiting in Ireland, and omg. And it isn't something we can normally get in the States.

There's no way to make sausage gravy look appetizing. It cannot be done. But...the smell and taste are wonderful. It IS heavy though, and not for everyone at breakfast. Lunch maybe.

Well, you can get it through King Arthur, but it will cost you $8.95 for a 6 oz. bottle, shipped from England.  I don't know how well it survives in a bottle, bounced across the sea.  I have eyed it in their catalog many times, never wanting to spend so much for a very small jar, but hoping that maybe my daughter or DIL would think to send me some for a special day.  But we digress.  Scones and clotted cream are hardly a peeve.

Scones can be peeves if they are the big, heavy, soggy ones you referred to that often pass as "scones" here in the States. Definite peeve.

ETA: I have seen recipes for making your own clotted cream, but so far I haven't been motivated enough to do so.

I'll take your share, and you can have my share of anything sweet. I don't know how people can face sugary stuff first thing in the morning. 

(Except jelly donuts. I do love a jelly donut now and then.)

Breakfast, in any of its forms (including brunch), is my favorite anti-peeve of all time. Savory. Sweet. Light. Heavy. Comfort food. Exotic food. Fruit. Vegan. Steak and eggs. There just has to be good coffee. GOOD coffee. Not GOOD coffee is a total peeve.

Those biscuits don't look right. Where is the gravy?

Yeah, I'm not really much of a biscuit person unless they are covered in sausage gravy.

 

At the very least there should be butter and jam oozing from the middle.

Oh, now, you would have to mention donuts. I am very fortunate to live over an hour from the closest shop that sells a reputable donut, not one of those cloying Krispy Kreme things. Otherwise, I would totally ruin my pseudo-diet by going there every time the urge struck.  I am not truly fond of sweet things, but I will make an exception for a donut.

And this ....

I have too. It seems like a lot of work to so to for one person's worth of the stuff.  And when I barely have my eyes open too.

   You could always make it. Just need some cream, an oven, and a whole lot of patience.

Whole lot of patience... whoa! Have you ever read any of my posts? Patience. :::scoffs::: What kind of magic are you proposing?

Thank you for that and it is a good thing that thread was locked before i got a chance to read through it in real time.

That said, it reminded me of something that goes quite beyond a simple "peeve" - If you are going to put someone on Ignore, do it and move on. Do not announce it, do not post screenshots of it ... Be. An. Adult.

I cannot stand that level of childish behavior.

Yes. It was pretty epically WTF? And all based on another equally WTF? (also in the links) Lots of WTF-ery going on of late.

Sometimes it's more fun to announce the blockage then sit back and watch the fireworks.

That's something I just cannot get behind, honestly. I can understand it - barely - but I just can't get behind it.

Meh, meh I say!

I thought you would see the humor in it. Sorry about that.
