Thursday Thirteen #34

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

My 11th Thursday Thirteen was a list of birds I see on my way to work. Tonight I’ve compiled a list of types of people I see when I’m out shopping.

  1. Adulescent – Dresses and acts like he’s 16 although he’s now in his 30s.
  2. Barbiedcutie – Would be attractive woman who has spent too long on the sunbeds.
  3. Brandroid – Everything in their life has a brand on it not just their clothes.
  4. Imobilised phone – In front of you at the check out with only a few items but too
    busy on their phone to pay, pack and move on. Shop assistants won’t challenge them if you do your clearly a lower form of life.
  5. Robbin’ Hoodies – Hoodie wearing youths hanging round wherever there is light with no where better to go.
  6. Mosher – Neo Goths in their all black uniforms hanging round where the Robbin’ Hoodies aren’t.
  7. Sugar Plum Scary – Some mothers used to dress their kids to look like them and that was frightening. Now some mothers dress like their 8 year old which is far, far, far scarier.
  8. Anorakxia – Thin, pale individuals who frequently lack social skills but who can bore you on a diverse range of subjects from Apples latest Operating System to a TV show that isn’t available over here yet but they’ve downloaded the first three series from the US.
  9. Black Collar Worker – People who work in marketing and other creative jobs who who wear a uniform of designer jeans and polo neck shirts in ten thousand shades of black.
  10. iPod Shuffler – They move in a rythmic way that suddenly jumps as their iPod randomly picks another track.
  11. Sticker Stacker – You see them in the supermarket. They came in for milk and bread but the lure of Buy One Get One free was too much and now they can’t decide how many they need so they’ll have to take the lot.
  12. Saga Louts – Over sixty, Over there and Over the Top. But most of the time over here wanting to be over there. You may find them, as I did tonight, hanging round bus stops. My Saga Lout told me about the football score and then told me a dozen jokes. Badly. Then he wandered off without catching a bus.
  13. Google Eyed – Someone who has spent too much time on the Internet and now has a rather odd stare

I'm a little late visiting, but I made it!
I'm afraid I'm one of those iPod Shufflers.

Linda R. Moore Monday, November 12th, 2007

LOL! Great list. :) Isn't people watching fun?

Thanks for visiting Raven's RV last Thursday. I also have a couple more TTs if that's of interest:

13 beers I have enjoyed

13 preparations for a landmark-hunting trip

happy TT!

Malcolm: Sunday, November 11th, 2007

This was a very creative and humorous TT. I esp. liked Adulescent, Barbiedcutie, and Sugar Plum Scary.

Sue Friday, November 9th, 2007

Great list, and thank you some much for stopping by!

.:mar Thursday, November 8th, 2007

LOL, what an interesting list, you are not only very observant you are very creative!
I have seen many of those around here, particularly Adulescents and Brandroids, lol. My favorite term is Anorakxia.

Norma Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Wonderful. I've met most of these at my coffee shop in the morning, but haven't named them.

Infinity Goods Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Takes every kind to make a world, doesn't it? That's a great list. Very creative. Happy T13!

Ann Aguirre Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Those are great. I love anorakxia.

Morgan St. John Thursday, November 8th, 2007

number 7! really great list. I'm a recovering sticker stacker...

Heidi Hyde Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Zenmomma Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Too funny!

Open Grove Claudia Thursday, November 8th, 2007

How fun! You forgot the gawker. I hate him the most!

Happy TT!

Sword Girl Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Haha! A google-eyed stared! These are hilarious and up there with your bird list. :)

Paige Stanton Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Maria Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Too funny! I absolutely love those. Very creative...

Hop on over to mine if you'd like to get added to my TT blogroll (and you can check out my 13 immunity-boosters for the cold and flu season).


Alasandra Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Thank you for visiting my TT about topaz.

Loved your list. They were all good, so I can't pick one. I think probably the only thing as annoying as the person ahead of you in the line who can't be bothered to pay because they are on their cell phone is the little old lady who has to dig through her purse looking for coupons and then she has to dig through her purse looking for the correct change, down to the penny. Meanwhile your ice-cream is melting because they are taking so long in the speedy check out line with their under 10 items.

Xakara Thursday, November 8th, 2007

That was hilarious. I know a few adulescents, but fortunately it's just in passing.

And I've seen the women dressed like their young children...*headshake*...ow, brain freeze, shouldn't have thought about it.

Thanks for the smile. :)


Yen Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Great list you have here!!! :D

Mine is up here;
Thursday Thirteen
Happy TT!

Emmyrose Thursday, November 8th, 2007

I think I have #13 already. Nice list :)

Candy Minx Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Did you make these up? They are brilliant! You better tryt o copywrite them...they are that good!

Great list and so funny.

Here is my TT:

cajunvegan Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Are you sure you weren't visiting at my middle school today?

Happy TT!

Lori Thursday, November 8th, 2007

LMAO...what a great list. I think I know some of these people too!! Happy TT.

Sandy Carlson Thursday, November 8th, 2007

That is hysterical! The world needs to see this list. Barbiedcuties run amok over here. They become the Sugar Plum Scaries over time.

Thanks for your delightful insights!

Joyismygoal Thursday, November 8th, 2007

so funny but not funny at all

pussreboots Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Cute list. Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Lara Angelina Thursday, November 8th, 2007

mmmmm....Can I admit I'm #10? But really, really, really...that's the ONLY ONE!!!
Funny TT!!

The Gal Herself Thursday, November 8th, 2007

They all very good and very funny, but Sugar Plum Scary is my favorite! (Thanks for visiting my TT)

journeywoman Thursday, November 8th, 2007


Great list.

WorksForMom Thursday, November 8th, 2007

You are so farking hilarious and creative. I'm the iPOD shuffle, I admit it.

Holly Thursday, November 8th, 2007

I've seen most of them! What also scares me are the mothers that dress their 3-12 year olds like Britney Spears...THAT'S scary. Little girls should not have their butt cracks showing cause their midriff jeans/sweats are that low.



Susan Helene Gottfried Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Those are great, Mark! Although, I've always had an odd stare. It's a writer thing.

Greatfullivin Thursday, November 8th, 2007

You are just too clever for a cure. You could publish a dictionary to go with last weeks calendar. I really enjoy your lists. Happy TT.

Nicholas Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Brilliant list! And so true!

Chelle Y. Thursday, November 8th, 2007

You're very creative at making up names for individuals! I found myself laughing at a few of those.

Janet Thursday, November 8th, 2007

too freakin' funny!

Hootin'Anni Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

So number three I have envisioned them coming out of a Mercedes or a BMW?!!!

Happy T T-ing

Jill Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

i never knew #13 existed!

Sandee (Comedy +) Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

Ha, I've seen most of these people. Now I know what to call them. Bwahahahahah. Have a great TT. :)

Nap Warden Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

What a great list! I can't even pick a favorite...well done!

ellen b Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

Oh Man these are great! Happy TT to you...
