Say What You Need To Say...

October 29, 2011

Since I can't sleep I thought I'd write a short (or not) post of the random things that are going through my over active brain right now. It's gonna be random, be prepared.

* I'm starting a new blog. Once I get it all set up I'll give most of you the link to it. I just need a space that my family can't read. You know, for when I need to vent. There's just somethings that I sometimes need to say that I'd prefer certain people don't see. I'm excited about it.

* I finally got my tabs (at the top of the page) working again. That was driving me nuts trying to figure out why the wouldn't show up lol.
* I'm patting myself on the back for my new layout. I'm loving the colors. I really liked the fall layout but the colors were so drab.

* I should know better than bragging about how well my new heartburn medicine is working (last night). I have terrible heartburn right now.

* My friend Jessica found out that she was pregnant on Wednesday. On Monday she found out that she'd had a miscarriage. It just breaks my heart for her. She's going to be a great Mother. She's taking it better than I expected her to though. I'm at least happy for that.

* My poor curling iron is dying a slow death. I usually just buy the Conair curling irons from Wal-Mart, like this one.

But I'm thinking I might want to try a different brand next time. So, what is your favorite brand of curling iron?

*   My straightening iron isn't far behind my curing iron. I love my Chi iron.

But it seems like I've only had this one for a year or so and it's already spazing out on me. It's my second one. I've already killed one of them lol. So, once again...what's your favorite brand straightening iron?

* To a certain someone...what I should have said was "Well excuse me for speaking the truth!" And while I'm at it, let me say this. Apologizing, even if you're right (you were so NOT right btw) is sometimes the "nice" thing to do. Duhh.

* Am I the only one who has some FB pet peeves going on? Here's just a short *snort* yeah right) list of mine.

  • Calling someone "out" on FB (online period). Do you really think telling the whole damn world "someone" that you're gonna "beat their ass into the ground" is going to scare them? Nothing like showing your friends how ghetto badass you are!

  • Posting pictures of your 7 year old child "shooting the bird". OK, it's cute when you catch a picture of a baby (or smaller child) doing it. But posting several pictures of your 7 year old daughter doing it (on purpose, usually because you told them to.) isn't going to win you any father of the year awards.

  • Posting pictures of your kid throwing gang signs. Really? He's 6.

  • Letting everyone on FB know that you and your husband are arguing. And then getting pissed off at people because their comments aren't taking your "side".

  • 10 million people all trying to be the first person to tell you that Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, and whoever else died. I mean, if you see it on your wall (from your friends posting it) more than five times, then I'm sure the rest of us know.

  • Letting your 5-12 year old kids open a FB account period. Have you ever heard the word pedophile?

  • Letting your young daughters post inappropriate (in my opinion) pictures of themselves. You know, the "sexy" poses in all those pics that you commented on saying "look at you miss sexy" or "your beautiful". *shakes head* 

First of all, she hasn't even hit double digits yet. Secondly, why would you want her to think that pictures like that (of a young INPRESSIONABLE girl) are sexy or beautiful?

All I can say to the above is "You know there's a trailer park attached to that somewhere!"

  • Telling everyone and anyone who'll listen (on FB) how much of a deadbeat your baby daddy (or baby momma) is. If they're a deadbeat take them to court. Don't blast it on FB for everyone, including your child to see. And who (in their right mind) wants their child to know that their "Daddy don't care about them!"??

  • Family arguments where the whole family gets involved and starts leaving nasty comments on each other's profiles. Trashy.

  • Posting that "so and so" deleted and blocked you and how you could care less. You must care if you noticed.

  • Constantly complaining. Don't you ever have anything positive to say? No? Let me share a little secret with you that my Mom told me when I was young. "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

Yes, I realize that this blog entry totally goes against the above quote. Shut up. It's my blog. Lmao.

  • Posting thousands of  "self portraits". Especially the one's that you've taken in the mirror. Don't get me wrong, I've taken a pic or two of myself, even in the mirror. But it was only so I could show off a hair cut or something. It wouldn't be so bad if there weren't so many of them. See this example below...

This is a girl that I used to work with. She's gorgeous. No doubt about it. She's also one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. Not the brightest bulb in the bunch, but sweet as can be.

These pics kill me though. And this is only a few of them. There are lots more. Even worse...the damn "smooch" lips. Uugh. That's so last year. (yes, I'm being sarcastic).

You've just gotta love the first picture on the second row. If you look to the far left of the picture you can almost see her daughter sleeping in the back seat while she's taking pictures. As.she's.driving. Wow.

On a side note, HOLY BOOBS Batman. I don't care what you do, you're not hiding those puppies. Everyone knows that they're there. Do you really have to show them off in almost every picture? (If you're a guy I know what your answer will be.)

Am I hatin'? Damn skippy lol. I wish I looked that good!

  • Posting open ended status messages that make everyone ask you "What's wrong?" "Are you OK?" Basically, looking for pity. If you need some support, cool. But don't leave a message that makes everyone worry about you and then not answer them for a few hours. You know, for the "dramatic" effect. Can you say emo drama queen?

  • "Hacking" into your boyfriends (or girlfriends) FB and posting a status about how great their girlfriend (or boyfriend) is. It's annoying. Stop it. While you're at it, trying growing up a little. You're in your 40's. It's just weird.


  • Last but not least is all the game request that people send me. I do not want to help you plow any fields or any other such chore's that one would do on a farm. I don't want to help you with any kind of game. Did you ever learn to play alone as a child? And why is necessary to send me three or four a day? It seriously makes me want to delete you.

Maybe it's just me. Maybe I spend too much time on FB lol.

I hear and agree with all of it.. Fb is definitely drama filled that is for sure.

I love your new layout. I really need to do something with mine but I was so challenged my tabs I said forget it. -You're good-. And I'm what I would call what the opposite of technically challenged? Anyway, I love my Chi flat iron. I have short hair so I'm on my second Wee chi. The other day I was randomly thinking what I'd be broken hearted about if I couldn't just go out an buy a new one - I am adding my chi to the list. You are SO on it with what people do on FB. I've cleaned up mine quite a bit. They are either hidden or deleted altogether ;-) P.S. I think my broken hearted if I couldn't replace list might be my next post. P.S.S. I hope I'm invited to the new blog, I like this one ;-)

Love the new lay-out! I use a Conair curling iron, too. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". LOL As for FB, these are all of the reasons that I DON"T DO FACEBOOK!!! Have a great weekend, cher!

MiMi said...

Amen sista!! Those damn self pictures and smooch lips and ironic looks drive me batshit crazy!! I love your new look. :)
Facebook...I saw this girl the other day do a Status update about how this woman was a slut and she was unclassy, blah blah blah.
The boyfriend of the woman (the woman who was posting the update, no less) said, "love, you aren't her friend on here so what good is it going to do to call her out on this anyway?" HAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Ducky said...

I'm still stuck on the boobs......

And I love the new look - yours not her boobs.

Dee Stephens said...

That girl in the mirror just wants to show off her boobs! Ridic!! Tell me about the new blog.
Sorry about your friend's miscarriage :(

Melanie said...

I hear ya! FB ain't nothing but drama at times. I'm guilty of some of the above, but not on a regular basis. I think my biggest peeve is the constant complaining. Some people NEVER have anything good to post at all.

Post a Comment

I love hearing from all of you so don't be shy.
