8 Things I Hate About Me


8  Things I Hate About


I hate when I’m envious of other people.


For example, today I scan a few blogs where the writing is
deliciously- Diablo -Cody divine.

And I get pissed off about it.  Yeah.
I think, “Why can’t I write like that?
Why can’t I be amusing & witty ?
Why can’t I get hundreds of comments?
Why can’t I quit work and blog full-time?


Why can’t I be ridiculously, outragesously popular?


I have a quick pity party.
Then get over it.    kind of.


2. I hate when I freak out about my weight.


Especially when I go to the doctor.


“ I don’t weigh that much, do I?  Excuuuuse me while I  remove my bracelets, lipstick,  & nose-ring, will you?


Now check the scale, dumb asssss.


3. I hate that I’m a procrastinator.


Therefore, heaps of laundry overflows, heaps,  & screams out to me.   Mostly
with boy’s underwear & socks.  wth?

Charlie’s litter box needs poop-scoopin.’

Mama needs a mammogram.




4. I
hate that I can never let go.


Picture It:   My son receives
his driver’s license, and  I go nutso,
freako, psycho, all mommy-ish.


I walk the floors to and fro uttering,  no no  no  no  not yet.

“Mom, stop it.  It’s going to be okay.”  Andrew says.


Before I give him the keys, I grasp his hand tightly.  I can’t think of anything else to do.

Repeat after me I say,
“Our Father who art in heaven….

5. I hate that I’m not assertive enough

Yes.  It’s true.


Why don’t  you believe


For instance, If my food is luke warm when I order it, I’ll
tell the waiter that I am the one who is Sorry!


Sad.  But true.

6.    I hate that I’m not a morning person.


I’d love to get up at dawn to pray, exercise, and throw a
load of underwear and socks in the washer.


I’m quite jealous of two of my co-workers who get up at 4:30
to get their asses kicked by Jillian Michaels‘ .


Damn you,   Mrs. Erie & Mrs. Luvkosky.  Damn you, for being thin and gorgeous and annoying.


7. I
hate that I have no will power.


Yeah, when it comes to chocolate chip cookies, babe.


I will eat them here
and there.   I will eat them anywhere.

I will eat them in the house.  I will eat them with a mouse.


Well, you get the picture.


This might be the reason my I despise going to the doctor.


8. I hate that I feel like half a human being
without Kay.


I don’t want to.  I
truly don’t.


But I do.  I do.


For example,  part of
my body is here-and the other part of
my organs there.


One piece  of my heart
is here—and the other beats there.


One segment of soul is here—the other waiting there.

~~~Dearest, Reader,  are
there some things you’d like to change about yourself?   ~~~~ An Added Note to my readers:  this post was meant to be fun & a bit light.  it doesn’t mean i hate myself or my quirky flaws!!  please don’t take this so literally!!!  thank you.  Kim. xx

Special Note——-  I Looooove  DIABLO CODY.  Yes,  she was once a popular blogger.   And now, well, now she’s a screen writer, and of course, she wrote the Brillant, Fabulous, Freaking Amazing…

    These things make you who you are … so time to start loving yourself!

    Although I hear ya – it’s so easy to put oneself down.

    So glad you liked the Oscar photos – I put them up especially for you today!

      –Lady Fi,

      My readers are reading this post as absolutely “Literal”

      IT IS NOT! It is not.

      It was meant as more fun and amusing…

      …I am not putting myself down.

      This is called LOST IN TRANSLATION….

      ~~OOOOOO, thank you for the beauty of Oscar. FOR ME? How abundantly Sweeeeet. xxx

  2. Brenda says:

    You’re human, therefore you are beautifully flawed. Most people ever look in the mirror and admit to themselves and the world what it is they don’t like about themselves. It takes more courage than your realize to be unique and make a stand in this world. Truly, most prefer to be part of the crowd and not stand apart. I say keep being who you are, what you feel needs to be fixed, you’ll fix it..

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      I agree. I adore strange, unique, quirky people (like me)

      This post was not meant to be completly “Literal” as I said above!!!!!!!!!!!

      I’m not trying to be fixed!

      It was meant to be a bit humorous.

      Xxx Love ya.

    “ I don’t weigh that much, do I? Excuuuuse me while I remove my bracelets, lipstick, & nose-ring, will you?”

    If that’s not witty, I don’t know what is.

    Those darn doctors, so negative sometimes. Why can’t they say something like, “Kim girl, that lipstick looks hot on you” or “You don’t have to make your co-pay ’cause you look gorgeous today, Kim.”

    I know what you mean about your son driving. Keep praying, girl. Wished I’d done more of it with mine. 3 cars in the junkyard in three years.

    I’m not a morning person either but I don’t hate that fact. I think we all have times of the day where we are our best. And I agree with Lady Fi.. its definitely time to start loving everything about you. Even the quirky things.. that’s what makes you special :)

  6. Honey, we all have flaws. You are a gorgeous vibrant woman and you’ve got a lot going for you. I think you are being a little hard on yourself. Ease up! Look at the good stuff,. I guarantee you it’s there.

  7. Katy Clark says:

    Oh, yes – there are many things I hate about myself, but in the end, I embrace my flaws – and recognize my gifts, and move on. If those are the only things you find in yourself to hate – then that’s pretty good. We love everything about you and hope you remember that!!!

  8. Amy says:

    I’m learning not to compare myself to others. . .it makes me feel too inadequate.
    I really do wish I were back to a very thin size. It’s not because of women’s magazines or because of a man. I just felt better when I weight 118. At 140, I feel sloppy, but I just don’t have the drive or energy to make the necessary changes anymore. So, I don’t really hate that I’m a little overweight. I hate that I don’t hate it enough to do anything about it! Ha ha ha! xoxo

  9. Vidya Sury says:

    Kim! You just can’t help being a lovely, warm and affectionate person, can you? I think you’re an amazing blogger and fantastic human being.

    Hmmm…now why can’t I write like you? Sigh.

    Love and hugs!

  10. Joan says:

    What I love is that you are so willing to expose your flaws. I am not that willing. I would like everyone to think that I am a perfect human being. That is my flaw. Thanks for putting your thoughts into such wonderful words to which we can all relate. You are beautiful as are your words. Keep writing.
    Joan recently posted..The problem with gun permit holders in public parksMy Profile

  11. I think we can all see yourself in this post, at least I know I sure can. It was hilarious and I loved it! Thumbs up.

  12. I hate that I don’t have a witty comment to leave. Writing is the hardest part of blogging for me. Think people would visit if I just posted pictures and recipes? Do you really have a nose ring?
    Barbara @ Barbara Bakes recently posted..Easy Pizza Monkey BreadMy Profile

  13. Jill says:

    I think we all have those moments where we feel less than. Moments we we feel incomplete or lacking. I have had them and for a long time felt that ‘lack’ every single day of my life and for several years. I don’t know whether it’s a fullfillment thing or an emptiness thing or a depression bout, but eventually we reach the end of our rope and start to either climb back up (like me) to find a better day or continue to hang on by a thread. We all reach the end of the rope. It’s a waiting game.
    I hope things turn around in a timely fashion. Jill

  14. Karen Sosnoski says:

    I think your other readers said it first.. you’re sympathetic, funny, engaging even when you’re down on yourself. But you’re also sympathetic, funny and inspiring when you’re up on yourself, so get back up there!We all love you! XO

  15. Alina says:

    I wouldn’t change a damn thing about myself or you.

    Just sayin…

  16. Dad says:

    I went out for lunch with a friend the other day, I orderd a hot sandwich. When my order came, the
    the sandwich was burnt on one side, the coffee was like mud, the water was warm. My friend’s order
    was great, he didn’t have coffee or water, he had a diet coke with a lot of ice. He said you arn’t going
    eat that junk are you. He asked the waitress would you eat this junk, she said i don’t like ruben sandwiches.
    Anyway i didn’t eat it, but paid for it and even left a tip. I felt sorry for the waitress for different reasons.
    So, Kim i am a lot like you.
    I love You More Than Nine Lions In The Jungle of Kenya

  17. Hate is a very powerful word young lady…

      Love ya. xxxx
      My Inner Chick recently posted..8 Things I Hate About MeMy Profile

  18. 1. I hate I didn’t post this 5 minutes ago before I lost it.
    2. I hate my teeth. I wish I had white teeth, but I don’t want fake teeth. Why can’t I paint them instead of getting veneers or something where they scrape your good teeth off? I don’t even have fake fingernails for crissakes!
    3. I hate that I don’t have the means to travel more.
    4.I hate that I don’t make my entire family pull their own weight around the house.
    5.I hate my voice and that I am so L_O_U_D!!!
    6. I hate that I cannot stay centered and commit to self care. I hate that I constantly feel off- balance.
    I hate that my mind doesn’t have a shut-off button.
    7.I hate I cannot remember the other things I posted. LOL!
    8. Oh,NOW I remember… LOL! I hate I cannot go back to school. I want my Master’s Degree… maybe in Creative Writing or Literary Studies, whatttaya think? Heck, maybe I want my docterate but I probably need to learn to spell it first!LOL

  19. “I will eat them here
    and there. I will eat them anywhere.

    I will eat them in the house. I will eat them with a mouse.”

    “Charlie’s litter box needs poop-scoopin.’

    Mama needs a mammogram.”

    :) Hey, Kim! You’re better than Dr. Seuss!!!! So funny! And Diablo WHO????

      If not, YOU MUST.

      I loooooooooove your Italian accent. I see it in you writing. Haaaaaaaaaa

  20. Lola says:

    I just hate other people’s faults. It saves me the time and energy I’d have to otherwise spend on introspection and self-improvement.

    You know I’m kidding, right?

    I hate when my jokes fall flat 😉

  21. LBDDiaries says:

    “I will eat them here
    and there. I will eat them anywhere.
    I will eat them in the house. I will eat them with a mouse.”

    SEE? You have something to praise yourself about. I would NEVER share my cookie with a mouse. I’m selfish. And I like that about myself. I *might* eat them with you. I dunno. The jury is out on my selfishness when it comes to the rare cookie I am allowed to eat.
    LBDDiaries recently posted..Wow. Just wow.My Profile

  22. Mercy says:

    Whew! Thank God I dont have any flaws, I ooze of perfection…:)

    Anyway, I hate that I laugh too much, even when I know I need to be serious. Like this day I’ve been sent to do an interview on this top shot businessman in the country, and when I go there, he is wearing this rather tight shirt that has a cartoon licking an ice cream, so he just looks like a little boy.

    And anytime I ask him something, he rubs his belly (where the icecream licking cartoon is drawn) and I couldnt keep a straight face, I had to put my head in my handbag and laugh.

    Everyone tells me I laugh too much. :)

    That, and of course the fact that I make very poor decisions and I am very unstable…when it comes to making my mind. That is my worst, and it has cost me A LOT!

  23. Me too…dammit. Why is so darn hard to be better than everyone else?

  24. Irene says:

    You write a fantastic soliloquy! What you pour out of your heart is true writing!

    “Charlie’s litter box needs poopin’ scoopin'” LMAO!

    Love you just the way you are! XXOO

  32. Kimberly says:

    Girl…number one all the way.
    Me too friend me too.
    I know that this is so so SO wrong but I also get jealous of all the moms who started writing about postpartum depression at the same time as me and they’re moving on in life. Like having babies and stuff. And I’m not. Makes me envious. But I’m so proud and happy for them. It’s bittersweet really.

    Other things I hate.
    My fucking gallbladder.
    My crooked spine and how everyone points it out to me.
    That I have a mustache…yup…it’s true. I am 1/4 Italian and of course I’d get the hairy genes. But I do love my wax lady person.

    and i hate your number 8. I will forever hate that one for you.

    But I want you to know that you are gorgeous. You are a beautiful person inside and out. And I said so. So there.

    I am the same way about my weight when I go to the doctor. I have a scale in my bathroom but never step foot on it. Mainly, because I don’t really give a fuck. Really, I don’t…until I get to the doctors office. Then ohhh holy hell. It says what?!?!?! Let me take off my jewelry, ok now what does it say. Shit… let me take off my shoes…I wore my “heavy” shoes today. Ok… now what does it say? Damn…Ok I’m gonna need to strip down to by birthday suit you can take the weight then we are going to subtract 10 lbs, sounds good.

    I should do a post like this! I’ll have to limit my list to 10 because I’m sure my list is close to 100.

      ““Dear, Impusive,
      that’s the cool thing about blogging…

      one does not need to be the GREATEST writer in the world or take all kinds of boring writing classes..

      .all the blogger needs to do is write her truth w/ out sugar coating it so other’s identify w/ her stories.


  38. Big D & Me says:

    I totally get this. I have the envious thing too. It’s weird, I know I am extremely lucky in my life but when I hear something from a friend like, “Oh the city is bulldozing our house to make a park and we are going to buy a new house in cash” I get a little jealous. I have a beautiful house I truly have nothing to worry about but still….I’m thinking about their new house

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      –Big D,
      it’s nice to know I’m not alone in my envious thinking….

      ….But I’m more jealous of those AWSOME bloggers cuz that’s what I want to be!!

      Damn them all!! Haa


  39. Emily says:

    Huh. I come away from *your* blog all impressed and jealous, thinking “why can’t I write like that,” so your #1 really got me thinking. :)

    You know, I don’t like “perfect” bloggers with perfect attitudes and waistlines. They bring out the latent axe murderer in me. Much rather have a g-f to laugh and giggle with, and to be flawed together.

    I know someone who repeats what they say. All. The. Time! allthetime! All the flippin’ time! I drives me crazy – and I recognize that I do it, too! All. the. time…..
