Just As Bad As Spam

I really hate stupid emails that are forwarded to me from friends. I'm tired of being warned about the latest and greatest way for burglars, rapists and scam artists to take advantage of me. For some reason it seems that everyone I know is incapable of checking the validity of these emails at snopes. I'm not saying that snopes in the highest authority on things such as these, rather that it is the simplest first step where, oftentimes, no further research need be involved.

Also I detest the stupid questionnaires that are sent under the guise of my friends wanting to know more about me by sending me "47 things about me" shit. What they really are doing is sending it so that you are forced to read all about them, I don't believe for one minute that they are going to read my responses. In the "me" centered world we live in, these questionnaires serve as no other purpose than for people to get you to read the wonderful (because they don't share the horrible) facts about themselves.

Okay, that's enough for now. I feel better.

Are They Serious?

Okay, I think that the consumer obsession with having to have name brand stuff has officially gone way too far!! Check this out. I can't believe that people put all of their self worth into accessories. Sheesh!

Slasher Flicks Rock!!

I am a total horror film buff. I can't remember a time when I didn't watch slasher flicks, even in my primary years. My Grandmother and I used to stay up late on the weekends to watch whatever we could on cable way back when cable was still young. Sigh, the good ol' days. I've been reading Final Girl as of late because she brings back fond memories of blood and gore. If you too are into these types of movies, you might want to check her out! She reviews and over analyzes such films, but what I use her blog for is to remind me what movies I may need to rush out to rent and re-watch. You know, to relive the days of yore.

A Meme for Me!

I've been tagged for a meme by The Complaints Department Manager. I'm supposed to grab the book nearest me and go to page 123 and then type the 3 sentences after the 5th sentence. Then I'm supposed to tag 5 people. I don't think I have five I can tolerate, but I'll try. Here goes ...

1) The event depicted here is a human event, like so many others, the supernatural element inherent in the strange presence of angels, which also make it border on the ridiculous.

2) This mix, resulting from the confrontation between pagan antiquity and Christian mysticism, is even more striking in a painting by Antoine Caron, The Sibyl of Tibur, also at the Louvre.

3) The scene is completely earthly; everything there is arranged to represent a ceremony in honor of a goddess, who appears in the form of a statue of a naked woman at the center of a fountain.

This was from The Great Goddess, Reverence of the Divine Feminine from the Paleolithic to the Present.

So now I would like to tag ...

1) Angry Engraver, consider yourself tagged and engrave this crap on your blog!!

2) Sunny and/or Rainy at Complainaway, you've been tagged and I'm curious to know what's close at hand for you.

3) Ryanol at Constantly Complaining, if you would please do me the honor.

4) Goddess of the Woods? Tag, you're it!!

5) Tele Girl at When the Phone Rings, this ought to be different at your blog!

They Make Horror Movies About This Stuff!

Night before last I had one of the creepiest things ever happen to me. I was asleep, preparing for a hard day at work the next morning. All of a sudden I was awakened by the tickley feeling of something small with a bunch of legs running across my face. My best guess is that it was a spider because there are loads of 'em who seem to be waking up this time of year and appearing around my house. Anyway, I brushed my face quickly with my hand and it ran. into. my. ear!! OHMYGOD, I could feel it running around in there! I quickly began pounding the side of my head with my ear facing down in hopes of knocking it out of there! I was having all sorts of crazy visions of it biting me inside my ear, or getting lost and not being able to get out, or laying eggs, or something horrible like that. Somehow, in my flailing moments, I thought to grab my cup of water that was next to the bed and pour some in my ear. My logic was that the little bastard would float out. I did this three times and it seems to have worked. Needless to say, I had a tough time going back to sleep after that!

My New Addiction

Okay, so I am busy as hell with life ... I don't have time to keep up on house work, a social life, sleep, blogging, anything ... except this new addiction of mine. Sigh ... I must admit, I always have a little time during the day to stare blankly at this. It's true. I stare for minutes on end at various intervals throughout the day to see if I may be able to catch a glimpse of a gazelle drinking water, a crocodile or lion killing a beast of the field, baboons mating ... yes, my name is Whiner Girl and I am a National Geographicoholic.

Immortality for Dummies

Okay, so I'm blindly surfing the internet, pondering the meaning of life ... or perhaps I wasn't pondering anything at all, maybe I was just happily lost in the la-la land that is my head. Either way, I happened upon this ...

According to this we can all be immortal if we just purchase, and wear, this device. Please be aware, however, if you wear it wrong it hastens death ... and there is a no return policy, in the event it doesn't work. I'm just curious how I'd return it ... FROM THE GRAVE!!!
