This is a journal where I'll be ranting about random topics that Shay has given me and at the end, I will give her a subject to rant on. And so it goes on...

Kinder Eggs

Right, don't even get me started on Kinder Eggs...

First off, they only give you a tiny amount of chocolate which is a real pain. Like, the amount they give you is so small, there's not much point in having the chocolate in the first place. And how do you even eat them in the first place? When you try and take a bite out of them, they just fall apart straight away and the chocolate just goes everywhere. And with chocolate that ridiculously overpriced, you can't afford to waste any. The toys in Kinder Eggs are always terrible. Like, which would I want a little springy cone thingy that doesn't even jump back up when you push it down? Or a pretend tech deck skateboard?? Totally pointless. The only good toys I've got from Kinder Eggs are these 2 mini motorbikes that you push a tiny bit and then the glide over the table or whatever smooth surface it's on. Most of the money that you're paying for a Kinder egg is the novelty of the egg shape and the plastic inside it. The actual chocolate is probably only worth about 20. So I personal think they should make Kinder Eggs 30p and just not put the toy inside. Or they could keep them at their ridiculous prices (89p!?!?!?) but make them and egg of solid Kinder chocolate. That would be so worth it.... maybe I should email Kinder tonight..... ---I ACTUALLY LOVE KINDER EGGS, DON'T HATE ON ME, SHAY I HATE YOU FOR CHOOSING THIS TOPIC FOR ME--- Okay Shay, because your subject for me was evil, your topic is cats... hehehe I'm sorry...

Cups

Don't get me started on cups. First off, there are so many different sizes of cup, but never the right size. Like, either you get a cup that is too small to quench your thirst so you have to refill it 6985132746 times before you're satisfied, or you choose a cup that's too big and then it feels like you have to drink an entire lake. (Also if you don't drink it all then your mum gets mad at you for leaving it and forces you to finish it and then you feel like you're about to explode. Just my mum?)

Another thing is that plastic cups always taste weird if you just have water in them, so you choose a glass instead but that tastes equally as awful. (Maybe it's just me but hey). Then you're kinda forced to drink juice so you can't taste the cup and it's like, I was trying to be healthy and drink water but this cup is forcing me to have juice and it's just so unfair!!! The next part is particularly troublesome if you have braces. I personally haven't had them, but I know it's annoying and embarrassing for people who have. Now it's always awkward when you dribble whilst drinking and it's more likely to happen when you have braces. This makes it more embarrassing for people who dot have them, because we don't have an excuse. Then it just looks like we're incompetent and can't drink properly. Because cups are so light, it's SUPER easy to knock them over. I'm a clumsy person as it is, but add a cup into the mix and, well, let's just say that it'll be laying down more than it's upright. Spilling drinks is just the most inconvenient thing too. (Tip: don't spill an entire bottle of ice tea all over your friends brand new pack of £20 playing cards she got for her birthday. You'll have to replace them and you'll feel terrible for the rest of your life) Okay Shay, sorry that took so long but it's here now! Your subject is dressing gowns!

Magnets

Don't even get me started on magnets. When I was younger I used to play with those little wooden trains that you'd build the track for (and let's be real, I still play with them now occasionally). So I'd pick the front train and then I'd choose 3 carriages to go with it, and then I'd have to attach them together. Every time I tried to put two together, they'd always be the wrong way round and the magnets would repel against each other and it was just the most annoying thing.


Another thing is that sometimes the magnets don't even work. Like fridge magnets for example, you'll have an awesome fridge magnet that's got some quirky thing written on it like "chocolate is always the answer, it doesn't matter what the question is" (one of my personal faves) so you're like, "yeah this is gonna look so cool on my fridge" and you stick it on at the top and then off you go to school. You come home to find the fridge magnet right at the bottom. Companies who make magnets, if you're gonna make magnets, make them stick. No one likes a sliding magnet!!

Something that's always annoyed me and probably will forever, is the fact that they can't filter what the pick up. Obviously they can't help that, but it's still annoying. I've had it before, where I have a pot of paperclips and safety pins and I want to only get the paperclips, but you can't just use a magnet to puck them out because they have no filter so they'd just pick up the whole lot. Remind me to never put two things that are magnetic together in the same pot...

Okay Shay, there's my rant on magnets! Your topic is CD cases (good luck with that)
