Sunday provides us a day to relax, reflect, and refuel. On Sunday’s I like to sit back and ask a couple of questions. Maybe it sounds a little like those awkward games you play with people you do not know so that you can get to know each other better.

Lets just call it Question(s) for You.

1) Pepsi or Coke?

2) The latest book you read was _______________?

3) Biggest pet peeve?

Answer them all or just one….these are Questions for You.

    1. Coke. Hands down.
    2. Love Wins
    3. Used to have one… can’t remember what it is. ;)

      Love wins was the last one I read as well

    1) Coke. But as a Texas Girl, Dr. Pepper is where it’s at! Pepsi=gross
    2) Short Girls. Not even kidding. Borders was going out of business so i bought it just because my 4’11 self related
    to the title. Cute novel though.
    3) When people use me as an arm rest or say my name like Forrest Gump.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      your pet peeve makes sense why you would buy the book

  • http://jonathanpearson.net Jonathan Pearson

    Diet Coke!

    Just reread Simple Church – great book!

    Truckers driving in the left lane on the interstate…. Pass the slow person in the right lane and move back over! Please! :)

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      as someone who just spent the week drivin way to much I totally agree with you. Very annoying. Especially when they do not get over

  • Katey

    1. Pepsi
    2. Trying to read “The Help”
    3. People talking on the cell phone while driving.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      “the Help” what is that and by who?

      • Katey

        It is by Kathryn Stockett and it is about African American maids working in white households in the early 1960s.

        I work in a library and I see it one hold almost all the time for people. It was available one day so I checked it out and I haven’t gotten past the first chapter. It came out in 2009. I think they are making a movie out of it.

  • http://learningfromsophie.com Laura Anne

    1. Coca cola!

    2. The King’s Speech by Mark Logue

    3. Oooh…probably drivers who don’t use there indicators – especially on roundabouts. And people who don’t give the ‘thank you sign’ when you let them out/into traffic. That’s just not good manners. :)

    • shellie (baylormum)

      I love #3!! Same in US!! It’s like some cars don’t even have turn signals installed! And there is a bad “thank-you” when you don’t allow some to merge….That is very prevalent.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      I don’t use my blinker very often, it lets people know what you are about to do. But I do hate it when people do not
      wave thank you.

      • http://learningfromsophie.com Laura Anne

        That’s the POINT Kyle. That way I know if you are turning off the exit so I can go….and I’m less likely to crash into you. That would be a driving test fail. :)

        • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

          ha, i like to keep people on their toes

  • http://www.mustardseedyear.com Jason

    1. Pepsi.

    2. StrengthFinder 2.0.

    3. Radio stations that sign agreements to carry programs they never intend to carry so that their competitors can’t carry them.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      Strength finders is a good one.

      what are your top 3 strengths?

  • shellie (baylormum)

    1. Coke. Drank Pepsi til about 5 years ago. I understand taste buds change as one gets older (Ha!).

    2. Last one by Patricia Cornwall.

    3. What Laura Anne said!

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      Ya, see my response to laura

    • http://learningfromsophie.com Laura Anne

      High five for my transatlantic friend who knows how to drive properly!!! ;)

      • shellie (baylormum)

        Maybe it’s a another female trait!!

        And you, Kyle, for shame for NOT using your signal. I don’t care where you are going, but I do care a little advance notice when you are turning!! No wonder insurance companies penalize people until their mid-20’s….

  • http://randrambles.com Rand

    1- Pepsi

    2- Mockingjay from the Hunger Games trilogy, amazing.

    3- I always forget when I am asked this question.

  • …adam

    1) Cherry Coke

    2) Demetri Martin’s This Is A Book

    3) People chewing with their mouth open. Good gosh, makes me want to throw something at them.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      I hate that too, especially when they chomp their gum

    • http://faithoverflow.blogspot.com Nikki Eidson

      I loved “This Is A Book”!!
      I saw Demetri in Atlanta. Great show!

      • http://www.adambuzard.com …adam

        I’m jealous. He was hear about a month ago in St Louis but his show sold out super quick, but the books was great.

  • http://abrahamchronicles.com dustin

    Coke.
    Sacred Singleness (Leslie Ludy)
    When my legs stick to the chair I’m sitting in – I hate feeling like I’m peeling myself off furniture -_-

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      is that a women’s only book or good for all genders?

  • http://www.prudychick.com Prudence

    1) Coke (diet)

    2) Jane Eyre

    3) People who stop the microwave with seconds/minutes left and don’t hit clear. That is probably one of many.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      ya the OCD cannot handle that

  • http://www.seeprestonblog.com Preston

    1. Coke (with a fresh lemon)
    2. “Penguins & Golden Calves: Icons and Idols in Antartica and Other Unexpected Places” by Madeleine L’Engle
    3. People who don’t know their order before they get to the cashier at Starbucks, or any place where I’m trying to get coffee, especially if they end up ordering a Frappuccino …

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      or a coffee :)

  • Meg

    1. Coke but I really don’t drink pop.
    2. My latest non-seminary book (i.e. not required for a class) was Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder. I highly recommend it.
    3. People who leave political bumper stickers on their cars long after the election is over. I also dislike those decals of individual family members & dogs & whatnot. Those drive me crazy!

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      oh yes those are annoying. The stick figure ones

  • http://Www.twitter.com/clscholes Conor

    1) Coke (really only cherry Coke)
    2) Flickering Pixels
    3) dismissive people…everybody needs a chance.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      Did you enjoy flickering pixels? I loved it, but I know a lot of people who did not like it

      • http://Twitter.com/clscholes Conor Scholes

        It was an interesting read, and brought up some issues people don’t like thinking about.

  • http://waterwatereverywhere.net MainlineMom aka Sarah

    1. Coke Zero
    2. Jon Acuff’s “Baby Steps, Gazelles and 37 Other Things…”
    3. Lazy people who hear about other people with successful online businesses that say “All they do is sit at home in front of a computer all day? I could do that!”

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      yes, those people who seem to have thought of every successful idea but have never executed any of them.
      “I thought of facebook long before facebook” :)

  • http://stephenalynch.tumblr.com Stephen Lynch

    1. Water
    2. Switch – Chip and Dan Heath
    3. People not doing something with their lives

    Half these pet peeves deal with other people. Interesting.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com @kylereed

      water was not an option Lynch…

      And I need to read that book “switch”
