So the list might be small, but I feel veeeeeeeerrrrry strongly pissed off about them, so...ya...
1. Uhhh, I called my cable company today because they were robbing me blind just so I can watch "Say yes to the Dress" and "Doc Martin" on Friday night. And this is so cliché, but of course, I was put on hold and they said the approximate wait time was 4 to 8 minutes. Ya. It was 22. 22 minutes. That's like triple the time. Anyone who lies about stuff like time cannot be trusted. Anyways, by the time I got off the phone (44 minutes later) I had shaved almost $75 off my bill per month. PER MONTH. That means they were uber gouging me. That pisses me off.
2. Miley Cyrus' little stunt at the VMA's. It wasn't just disgusting...it was ridiculous. She looked like she was having a seizure, a dirty, nasty seizure, but a seizure none the less. Okay, we get it. You don't care. About anything. Not your family, not yourself, certainly not your self respect. Women around the world get thrown in jail for exposing their faces and not wearing burqas. Women around the world have fought for basic rights like education and voting. Women around the world are survivors of abuse - sexual, emotional and physical - but Miley, instead of using her status in life to promote and protect women less fortunate than her, decides to wear a nude suit and use a foam finger for purposes other than those intended, I'm sure. I get that she's a performer. I get that she is young and trying to 'find herself'. But there are millions of girls out there trying to find themselves. And they don't feel the need to do whatever it is she thought she was doing. Her little act didn't just show she doesn't respect herself...I think it was a disgusting slap in the face to women everywhere.
3. Justin Trudeau. Okay, okay, okay...I get it. Everyone thinks that Marijuana is not bad for you. Everyone thinks it should be legal. Everyone thinks that alcohol is just as *dangerous*. Everyone does it. Here's the thing...it's still illegal. Let's argue semantics because oh. that. is. super. fun. right??? The 'law' says that possession is illegal, smoking it is not. Hmmmmm, if you're smoking it, your holding it in your hand or your mouth which means you're in possession of it, okay? But ohhhhhhh, Mr. Trudeau is above the law, because his father used to be the Prime Minister and he has great hair. Ohhhhhh, and he's honest about it, so that's okay, right? It's so refreshing that a politician is so honest about his drug habits. And you know, everyone says such horrible things about Stephen Harper. I have one thing to say about that - the WORLD (world...like the whole wide world....) was in a GLOBAL recession...the worst anyone had ever seen since the great depression. Countries declared bankruptcy, hundreds of thousands of people lost their jobs, had no way to support their families...and their countries were too poor to bail them out. Everyone in the world, except for...oh. what. country. was. that????? Oh that's right, CANADA. We excelled. Our dollar went crazy. I didn't lose my job. Did you? Did you have to stand in a line with your food stamps, hoping food was left when you got there? I bet not. I think I'd rather vote for a guy who can successfully keep our economy running instead of a guy who tells everyone he smokes pot because it gets him popular with the 'in' crowd. We're not in high school anymore people. Do you want to belong to a frat or live in a country? How about - you want to smoke pot, you make it legal and then do it. Then it won't bother me in the least.
I am so glad I got that off my chest.
It was driving me crazy.
Seriously. I feel so much better now.
I'm almost not annoyed by...
4. One Direction (or 1D). Was I really as ridiculous over the Backstreet Boys as girls these days are over 1D? These are boys who do not have facial hair yet singing songs with stupid lyrics. Ugh. Talking about stupid lyrics...Katy Perry just wrote the most fabulous song for victimized women everywhere with the most over used clichés ever...like if you stand for nothing, you'll fall for everything...how many millions of times have you heard that? And then, let's use the eye of the tiger phrase from another song...and say I'm the eye of the tiger and you're going to hear me roar. Eyes don't roar. Mouths do. Lions do. The eye of the tiger can refer to emotion and passion, but cannot reference vocal sounds. Idiots. And this is at the top of the charts right now, so the radio plays it all. the. time.
I feel so much better.
I'm not even going to start on my ex because he's just not worth it...
(And also, that list was a little longer than I thought it would be!)
What's pissing you off this week???
