I had a phone call from my Mum in the UK this morning, she asked me if I was excited about our up coming house move....'No not really' she was disappointed.
It's made me think about what does excite me and to be honest I'm not sure how to really interupt the word.

2. Very annoyed.
I've moved past the angry stage, but yes I'm still very annoyed.
I can't help thinking how number 1. Vulgar relates to 2. Sexually excited
So what does make me excited, enthuastic and eager? In no particular order.
The London Olympics? Well I am excited to find out if I have a volunteers role, but equally pissed that I haven't found out yet.
My son's visit next week...that excites me, I've so many plans for places to go, fab experiences.
My cat...I get excited with her excitement when she sees me, when I call her in at night and she comes running.
Planning...when I'm not pissed waiting for others to make decisions, sign documents etc, I get excited by writing lists, making plans a, b & c to cover all eventualities.
Hubby...he equally pisses me off and excites me...I get annoyed when he goes away with work, and i'm eager for him to come home, so we can get pissed together (both ways as mentioned above and a spot of alcohol)
I'm excited to have made new friends, it's all in the early stages so sometimes I get pissed when they can't make a date.
Post...that both excites me and pisses me off, I've given up now on those that don't make an effort and I'm sure feed back will come soon about how pissed they are because I've stopped writing in response to them not responding.
There's not alot else that excites me to be honest with you, because with every great excitement comes the 'pissed' bit.
Christmas is exciting but I get pissed off with the shopping, the making sure everyone is catered for in terms of who we visit.
The same with UK trips, excited to see everyone, but pissed with the demands on my time...it's not a holiday, it's great to see everyone, but I get pissed that I can't do it all.
i'm sure there are many more things that Piss me off and excite me....it seems that you can't have one without the other.
Anyway....what gets you pissed (not home brew) and what makes you excited?
