Kristin Chenoweth trying to sing opera.
Suzanne: I never use catalogs. I'd rather go in the store and see all the salespeople groveling and sucking up to you. Julia: Pardon me, I never knew they were so solicitous at the K-Mart.

^ LOL

The worst sounds have to be either: someone filing their nails or scratching a chalkboard.

No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Forseriously- Ice scraping. Once I sat in a car while someone was scraping the ice of the windows after a few minutes trying to bear it, I got out of the car and threw up.

Crazy, right?

The noise when you start taking something wrapped in styrofoam out of a box and it breaks and squeaks..urgh, makes me shiver.

Same with just writing on a chalkboard with chalk. I hate that sound. Ich.

Group of teenage girls on the subway "talking". It's like they believe they're the only ones on the car. It's particularly annoyoing to me if it's spanish.

Alarm clocks. Whenever one goes off in a movie or show, I shudder.
One time, Patti LuPone punched me in the face...


It was awesome.
