Could I Have a Sarcasm Font Puh-Leez?

A friend of mine sent me the thoughts below, and it left me thinking, "Holy cow! I must have many kindred spirits." Since it was one of those "FW:FW:FW:" type deals, there must a whole lot of us out there. And by the way, I added #18.
  1. There is great need for "a sarcasm font."
  2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
  3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to take a nap when I was little.
  4. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
  5. Was learning cursive really necessary?
  6. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
  7. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
  8. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least "sorta tired."
  9. Bad decisions make good stories.
  10. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
  11. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection..again.
  12. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
  13. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this...ever.
  14. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Darn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away???
  15. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
  16. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
  17. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay Jewelers.
  18. Is it so hard to remove the FW:FW:FW: from the subject line? You make me feel like I am just another name in your address book, plus it just looks tacky!
What thought would you add to this that you have wanted to pronounce to the world?

  8. These are GENIUS! Love this list everytime I read it, and YES on your #18. I don't want to be one in your long line of FWD's. Make me feel special!

  9. awe.some.ness.

    I absolutely agree w/your #18, and offer my own addendum: Could you please also delete the 4,732 names and addresses within your FW:FW:FW:? Not only do I not feel special, but now you've seriously ticked me off what with all the scrolling. Thanks

    Came over via SITS Saturday Sharefest, but I'm your newest follower. You'll be seeing me back 'round these parts.

  13. Totally agree that sarcasm needs a font! visiting from SITS - my add on would be "If I've ignored the other 102 times you asked me to help you in mafia wars or farmville, I will probably ignore the next ones too..."

  14. LOVE LOVE LOVE these! This would be what I'd add:

    Note to self: When I go to an event feeling like I look FABULOUS & THIN, do not...repeat, DO NOT allow any photographs to be taken. The delta between what I felt like and what the picture shows I actually LOOKED like (especially after two martinis) is just too great.

  15. That is a hilarious list but so true! I love the one about getting all ready to go out and then not seeing anyone of importance. So funny!

  17. Love this list.

    We definately need a sarcasm font.

  18. I have seen the list before...
    and I actually learned how to fold a fitted sheet from watching Martha Stewart. (My friends make fun of me for NOT rolling it into a ball like the rest of the world.)

    I LOVE the one you added though...so true!! HATE the fwd:fwd:fwd:!

    Stopping by from SITS.

  19. I personally think that life is too short to even worry about how to fold a fitted sheet -- a point my mother-in-law does not share!

    Great list. Wow, a heart transplant.. that is big time.

    Popped over from SITS

    Cheers L

  20. Found you through SITS! I just wanted to say congrats on the heart transplant. My oldest little one had a liver transplant Nov. 18, 2008. I wish you the greatest success in the world.

  21. Love the list! I saw the title of your post on SITS and had to come across to tell you about a website (http://www.sarcmark.com) which I read about on a language website recently. Personally, not sure I would use it, but it's surely the next best thing to having a special font for sarcasm.... :)

  22. I always remove the FW: and go to the heart of the email and delete all that was before it. Nothing worse than having to scroll for an hour before you get to the message!

    Glad it's not just me!

    Here from SITS!

  23. Is #3 not just the truest thing EVER at this point?
