Things that I feel like bitching about:
Rant 1: Idiots who want sympathy I'll be honest. I feel guilty about this rant, but it's been bugging me for a bit now. I get annoyed when people that are idiots ask for my sympathy. This is the part where it may offend some people and I'm sorry. Couple of cases in point: Read on the local news the other day that a pregnant 19 year old (who already had a 9 month old child) was riding in the bed of a pickup truck. The truck got into some sort of an accident, she was thrown from the bed, and her and her unborn child are dead. Is this a sad story? Yes, very sad- it's sad for the baby that will never be, it's sad for the 9 month old who is now without a mother, it is sad for this girl's family. However...she was pregnant and riding in the bed of a truck. I know we may all have rode in the bed of a truck at one point or another and I know we all probably realize it's a dumb move cuz your ass is most likely grass if that truck is in an accident or hell even if it has to hit on the brakes. But this woman should have been thinking about her baby. If you are pregnant, you should be acting more responsible because you have not only yourself to worry about but also that baby in your belly. So...do I want to give this woman my sympathy? No- she was being an idiot. Second case in point, a girl asking for prayers for her friend who was...get this...trying to roll a truck and took off his seatbelt in the process. And, can you believe it, he ended up in the hospital. Uh hello, DUH. Will I pray for the guy to recover? Of course. Do I feel for the guy? No, I don't. He was straight up asking for it.
Rant 2: Dear Metabolism, Why did you trick me in my youth? You were so fast. I could eat anything that I wanted, never lift a finger, and not gain a pound. I'm only 24 and you're slowing down already? I actually have to work hard to keep myself in shape. I get that most people have to work to keep their weight down and I'm ok with that, but it's not something I've ever had to do before so it's taking some getting used to. I love good food. Ask the NewlyHusband, dinner is my favorite time of the day and I get grouchy if I don't have a good one. And, ya know, I enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two or three after a bad day or when I'm celebrating something or when I go out or with dinner. Are these things I'm going to have to cut back on? Oh you evil evil thing metabolism, you.
Rant 3: Hate crimes- This one is more serious. But I don't get and will never get why one person thinks they have the right to take the life of another person, just because of who that person is. You know watch, scratch "hate crimes" and put in "violence in general." Why does one human being believe they have the right to hurt/kill another human being? If anyone has the answer to this, please let me know.
Rant 4: Celebrity gossip- Now I'm ok with a certain amount of celebrity gossip and I get that it is a lot of people's guilty pleasure. Hell we're human and we like insight into other people's lives, hence why we read other people's blogs and why we watch reality tv. But there are two kinds I despise. 1- Anything having to do with Speidi. The only good thing about Speidi is that "Speidi" sounds like a nickname you would give your pet tarantuala. I find spiders gross and annoying and I find Heidi and Spencer gross and annoying. Perfect nickname. But c'mon, these people need to get the hell out of the spotlight. There is nothing special about them. They both love drama and they certainly belong together. 2-Celebrity gossip that is pointless and hurtful. The best example of this was when TMZ did a report that Katie Holmes had a cold sore and had pictures of her with it. So the fuck what? People get cold sores- cold sores are usually NOT an STD, a lot of times people have gotten them since they were younger, and things such as stress, cold, and heat can bring them out. Why is that something to report on and make fun of? I felt so bad for the girl. This kind of celebrity gossip is messed up.
I'm sure I could think of many more things to vent about, but let's save those for another day. I'm thinking of making banana bread for the first time later on, so be on the lookout for a post about that debacle, uh I mean, fabulous recipe.
