Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

Friday, September 01, 2006


Although I'm very grateful that it's Friday and it's a holiday weekend and I have off on Monday....a lil part of me is kinda saddened by this weather! It's rainy, chilly, and a storm is coming in tonight....So my plans to lay on a beach all weekend are shattered. So that means I must tackle some work that needs to be done indoors. Things I'd rather avoid and not look at and make believe arent't really there. Kinda like the way I've been looking at my whole life lately. If I don't think about it, it doesn't exist! Ok...let's change that subject real quick...(doesn't exist, I can't see it, putting my hands over my eyes, plugging my ears).....whew, I'm ok now..... ...So let's get back to some fun......

New rules from George Carlin:

1. New rule: stop giving me that pop-up ad for There's a reason you don't talk to people for 25 years. Because you don't particularly like them! Besides, I already know what the captain of the football team is doing these days: mowing my lawn.

2. New rule: don't eat anything that's served to you out a window unless, you're a seagull. People are acting all shocked that a human finger was found in a bowl of Wendy's chili. Hey, it cost less than a dollar. What did you expect it to contain? Trout?

3. New rule: stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot, blonde teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description for these kids: lucky bastards.

4. New rule: if you need to shave and you still collect baseball cards, you're gay. If you're a kid, the cards are keepsakes of your idols. If you're a grown man, they're pictures of men.

5. New rule: ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care about your eyebrows: do you have two of them? Okay, we're done.

6. New rule: there's no such thing as flavored water. There's a whole aisle of this crap at the supermarket - water, but without that watery taste. Sorry, but flavored water is called a soft drink. You want flavored water? Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That's your flavored water.

7. New rule: stop f***ing with old people. Target is introducing a redesigned pill bottle that's square, with a bigger label. And the top is now the bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it, his ass will be in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved the social security crisis.

8. New rule: the more complicated the starbucks order, the bigger the asshole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one sweet-n'-low and one Nutrasweet," ooooohhhhhh, you're a huge asshole!

9. New rule: I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my card, entering my pin number, pressing "enter," verifying the amount, deciding, no, I don't want cash back, and pressing "enter" again, the kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my almond joy.

10. New rule: just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make you spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And it translates to "beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything spiritual, you were praying to god you weren't pregnant. You're not spiritual. You're just high.

11. New rule: competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the US open of competitive eating, because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too damned exciting. What's next, competitive farting? Oh wait. they're already doing that. It's called "the Howard Stern show."

12. New rule: I don't need a bigger mega m&m. If I'm extra hungry for m&ms, I'll go nuts and eat two.

13. New rule: if you're going to insist on making movies based on crappy, old television shows, then you have to give everyone in the cineplex a remote so we can see what's playing on the other screens. Let's remember that the reason something was a television show in the first place is that the idea wasn't good enough to be a movie.

14. New rule: no more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab. Picking out the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you isn't gift giving, it's the white people version of looting.

15. New rule: and this one is long overdue: no more bathroom attendants. After I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint like I just had sex with George Michael. I can't even tell if he's supposed to be there, or just some freak with a fetish. Don't want to be on your webcam, dude. I just want to wash my hands!

16. New rule: when I ask how old your toddler is, I don't need to know in months. "27 months." "He's two," will do just fine. He's not a cheese. And I didn't really care in the first place.

One quibble. No. 5. Unibrows are cool, they run in my family, and I hear they're in vogue. for now. So, you don't have to have two eyebrows, okay? All right. Are you okay with that. Now get back to your feckin housework! (Just kidding on that last part. We're supposed to get the rain too. I'm thinking of curling up with some Virginia Woolf.)
