It's Monday and we're back in the office. Oh, joy.

Since the dawn of time, working stiffs have been annoyed by the same basic things day-in and day-out: the awkward and annoying conversations, the technology that never quite works, hearing everyone weigh in on every single item in the news. Of course, it's better to have a job than not, but it doesn't make these daily annoyances any less grating.

So here's a quick salute to those topics of conversation and events which almost everyone would prefer to avoid this week. What are you not looking forward to this week?

Double ugh.

  • Speculations As To What Katie Got In The Divorce

    <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/29/tomkat-split-tweets_n_1638334.html" target="_hplink">At first it was fun</a> to speculate about the splitting of Hollywood's most baffling couple, but <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/09/tom-cruise-katie-holmes-divorce-settlement_n_1659293.html" target="_hplink">this is when it stops being amusing</a> and starts being sad.

  • Jokes About Kourtney Kardashian's New Baby's Name

    Normally almost any punchline including a Kardashian is fine by us, but the fact Kourtney named her daughter <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/09/kourtney-kardashian-gives-birth_n_1658310.html" target="_hplink">Penelope Scotland</a> just isn't that LOL-worthy. Let's at least wait until the baby grows up and starts acting like a Kardashian before we give her the same treatment.

  • Call From Mom About The New 'Today' Host

    "Yes, mom, she's really great. Yes, I like the name <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/09/savannah-guthrie-today-co-host_n_1658490.html" target="_hplink">Savannah</a> too. No, I've never been to Georgia. Where is this going?"

    Pretty soon <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/09/us/extreme-heat/index.html" target="_hplink">these headlines</a> are just going to read: 'Global Warming Happening, Say 7 Billion Sweaty People Unanimously'

  • Considering The Concept Of An 'iPad Mini'

    No, it's not an alternate name for an iPhone. The <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/06/iphone-5-ipad-mini-release-date-ipad-4-apple-rumors_n_1654712.html" target="_hplink">iPad Mini</a> is something we just heard might actually be produced, leading us to believe that Apple is getting its marketing ideas from "Golidlocks & The Three Bears."
