I assign disorganised teachers that make you stay afterschool to make up a test and then forget to leave a test for you.

unconsciously leaving your deodorant in the refrigerator all night.

Not that it's awful, but I'm concerned of how mindless you have to be leaving objects in the fridge...that shouldn't go there. Car keys and remotes are one thing...but your deodorant? I'm scared.

Aw, Boro, at least the fridge smells nice...

Leaving objects in the weirdest places is just like me. I do worse things, sometimes; I look for objects that I'm holding in my hand. I do that all the time, and it's the most annoying time-wasting thing to do. And it's also embarassing when you can't find something in class and start panicking and asking around, and after everyone says apologetically that they haven't seen it you realise that you're already holding it...

I also assign my sister's habit of dumping books where she reads them. She reads no more than 3 at a time, yet the kitchen, the living room, the car, her bedroom, and even some closets are littered with her books. Moreover, when she reads she bends the spine. Wherever I go I see ugly bent up books. She started reading the Felloship about half a year ago, but she doesn't know where it is now. To look for it I'd have to turn over the entire house. No wonder she lost it!

Spine bending should go to Mordor, definitely. Sometimes, a spine gets damaged over time, you can't help that, but to do it deliberately makes me wince. I used to scan books for the guy I used to work with (he is blind) and of course paperbacks had to be broken in order to go on the scanner. He used to laugh at me wincing and break them for me first - I had to go and make a pot of tea while he did it. On the other hand, my brother used to go mad when I borrowed his Tolkien books in case I damaged them, and my mum had to make sure we had a set each - they still ended up bashed and broken though. It's a sad life, being a paperback book.

I've never had mine in the fridge, but I've used cold deodorant before and it isn't pleasant.

I assign daylight savings time. Vile, vile thing. Just leave the time alone, will you? It works well enough without people muddling with it. Europeans have it the right way. DOWN DOWN WITH DST!

Hah, not in the UK, they want to impose even more 'daylight savings' on us so we have no GMT any more, despite the fact that north of Birmingham it wouldn't get light until 10am in winter and then be dark by 4 anyway, so we'd spend our lives outside work and school in darkness. So I'm going to be like Ned Stark and send southern-centric decisions to Mordor too

Wasn't Germany the first place to introduce "daylight saving time"?

We have DST and every so often Parliament debates moving forward to GMT+1 and "Double summer time" . France I know has DST (though confusingly I don't think they change at the same time as us). I have a friend whe maintains the whole problem in the UK could be resolved buy merely extending Summer time for all but December and January... but he is a card carrying eccentric (even by my standards) so I don't know if he is right or just a bit crazy....

However when I went around America by train after I graduated I lost track of time on the long haul legs - I went from Seattle to New York with only a very short break in transit in and 3 overnights on the train. I had a watch with dual time so I always knew what time it was at home but for where I was I wasn't confident withing 2 hours...

Oh my!... My case is nothing compared to yours. I don't take any medications. I just have a runny nose and itchy throat and eyes for about a month. Not as bad as what you're having, though. And I'm still anticipating an increase in it, since things are just starting to bloom...

Julian Fellowes. I've watched him manage to turn the story of Titanic into Crossroads tonight. He needs to spend a long time editing all his scripts and Mordor is now a quiet place to do so.

Seconded. I am now having to decide if I use what petrol I have left looking for an open petrol station or conserve it and hope it calms down. But there are only 2 petrol stations in a town of over 25k people.

Lol, I think it's the bully who's really weaker. There's no such thing, IMO, as a superiority complex - just a badly covered inferiority complex.

1420!

Fans of any Disney Star (Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, etc.)

The Disney Stars themselves

Bad pro wrestlers (Like CM Punk: Undertaker, Rey Mysterio, and Edge are safe.)

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga fans

My sister (love ya, K!)

My aunt's church (There's religion, then there's overkill. You don't need to go 3 times a week!)

All Math teachers. Geometry sucks.

My freshman year science teacher. (If I knew what to do next, I wouldn't ask for help. Standing there saying "OK, you've done this and this, what do you do next" isn't going to help!)

I like vegtables... don't send them to Mordor. Send Feta cheese instead...

People who trade in their brains when they get a sat nav. Who won't listen to simple directions and say they will use the sat nav even when they previously got very lost and nearly missed a funeral following the sat nav when three simple directions would have got them there....especially when they always want you to find the postcodes for them.. and especially when they posess a Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and have done a four day expedition in remote terrain and there fore should reasonably be expected to read a streetmap...not that you need one for this particular journey. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh hhhh

I know exactly what you mean! People follow their sat nas (or GPSs, as we call them here) like robots. Plus, those GPSs are often outdated, or they don't show things to the detail that you need. And if the GPS gets the route right, it's probably a route by the slowest and least convenient streets - when you can go just a block farther but get there much faster as a result. And the most annoying thing about the latest inventions is that they speak! Every two seconds in that annoying voice: "right turn in: 200m", "right turn in: 100m", "right turn in: 50m"....just shut it already! We get the point!

I think that if you need something to tell you which way to turn in X meters, you really shouldn't be at the wheel.

I swear I am tempted to get the post code of somewhere up a narrow lane... what is so hard about take the second turn on the right after the roundabout? Is that so difficult? Fair enough I can see it might be useful in some circumstances but this person comes down here regularly and everytime she whines for post codes for places that don't have them because they are in a forest or a fort on a spit in the sea and they are all well signposted. Gah..

I assign people who buy costumes for Halloween, rather than making their own. And people with cutsy costumes; it takes all the fun out of Halloween! and cheaping out on candy, that too. It's not a fun-size candy bar unless it's big enough to conceal a razor blade!

Yeah, I've begun working on my costume, in case you haven't noticed... (The Witch-King of Angmar)

You are making me a little nervous here... is this early preparation for this year or harbouring resentment from last and "big enough to hide a razor blade in" is a somewhat sinister reference unit of measurement....

New Pokemon suck. Send then to Mordor. I loved Pokemon when I was little, then it turned to $h!t. You turn around and ask a 10 year old what they think of Charmander, and they're like; Who? Sauron and his orcs and men can play with Pokemon cards and watch the sucky new episodes.

Meowth ROCKS!

Pika-Pika, peeps

^ Last year, we had a huge snowstorm here in New England, and trick-or-treating was rescheduled for the next Saturday. It sucked, and only about 15 people had candy. I always make my own costumes, and all that work was barely even worth it last year.

Well, it's died down a little bit where I am. At least I don't see kids running around comparing cards that say Pokemon on them.

White Tree

I assign the suckiness of walking out of school to beautiful weather, then having it be sprinkiling as your bus drives home, the walking from the bus stop to your apartment in POURING FREAKING RAIN that soaks all the way through your coat and your shirt.

A little rain doesn't bother me, but this was more than a little rediculous. I walked inside, and the first thing out of my sister's mouth was; "Hey, look! The drowned rat's home!"

Always something or someone that makes you grit your teeth together.

Yes, there's always something in the world to upset us all

I assign whoever invented the following: polystyrene, shrink wrap packaging, Discovery fajita spice mix, and my new bugbear - coathangers.

If I can have "lack of summer heat" in Toronto, take me there! Even if it is in Mordor!

Oh, and every time it rains in Texas, it hails too, and threatens to tornado. So hail and tornadoes can be assigned to Mordor, too.
