I hate… tomatoes

Since today is Monday I think it is only fair that I review 10 things I generally hate. Some will be mildly offensive (which is a huge jump for me) and others will be funny but yet a window into my soul…

1. The sound/feeling of cotton cutting. If you think this is nuts then you have no clue what I am talking about. It hurts my teeth. I get the same sensation when yarn is being tied. Since I am not a seamstress I don’t have that happen much, nor am I crafty. I can’t explain it other than I avoid it like I avoid AIDS.

2. Hangovers!! I know everyone hates them but I actually hate them not because of the pain and the constant banging. I don’t hate them because I lose a day to nothingness, and usually this is a day I wanted to be productive. I don’t hate them because it make me fight with my best friend, beer. I hate them because it shows my age. I remember not so long ago when I use to laugh at those who had this foreign sickness. Now, I am that person! It is like with every month I age my hangovers last an extra hour. Before you know it a few drinks with the girls will end up being three days of sickness!

3. Entitlement. I think everyone should earn their own way. If you can’t because of a handicap then fine, your community can help you but if you are not working because you can’t find your dream hours/pay/JOB then GROW THE FUCK UP! It is called being a productive member of society. My opinion is if you want money from the government or as I like to call it “my hard earned money”  then you should be required to take a job working for the man themselves. There are plenty of employment opportunities in the military. What about working for the community food bank, ASPCA or cleaning the parks?? How about working cleaning the local jail, police cars, fire trucks or park bathrooms??? I once ran my own department and I can’t tell you how many people wouldn’t even come in for an interview because they were making more on unemployment… BLAH.

4. Chapstick/ grease stains. I mean seriously who knows how to get that crap out?? I know how to do it if I happen to notice it before I wash and dry it! It just appears out of nowhere! You know we have pretty awesome science but we can’t make a chapstick tube water proof or heat proof!! I know I am not alone on this crap. Lets not even start on how to keep your shirt sleeves clean while cooking….  unless you want to cook like my mom, dry and dull

5. Cell phones. I mean seriously 10 years ago I was functioning fine without a calendar, text messages, facebook and candy crush in my pocket and now I can’t even poop alone! Its not like I am a cell phone addict either I am pretty normal with mine. I am not always on it, I maybe get 1 call a day and 50 texts. I rarely use it as a phone but now for audible books and reading I use it 29/7. I guess that would be expected for someone who started using a purse so I could always have a book on me. Sometimes it scares me how we are all attached to technology. I keep saying I am going to turn off for one day a weekend and I think as I write this and I think of how my phone is nagging me to check it for a text message I didn’t get I really do need to stop this one sided relationship.

6. 24 hour news. As anyone (not like anyone really reads this, I appreciate the one person who keeps reading it) who knows me or has read back I am pretty conservative. All because of fiscal reasons. I don’t give a rats ass who anyone weds and I am extremely pro conservation I just have an issue with anyone telling me the best way to live my life of I have to support people who are unwilling to work. If you told me all my money was going to animal shelters I was be all like “Here take 50% of my pay”. Also, you should probably know I am not a HUGE fan of people. I love my furry friends. Anyways! I think one of the downfalls of American moral is 24 hour news. Let not mention how we have NO non biased news source. I want to scream at my mother because she spends all day watching the news and she is so segregated to the real world and what is going on.  She legitimately thinks this world is ending soon! I just think if you watch too much you start to lose the ability to form your own opinions. She use to read the paper, I wish her and this country would get back to that. All this technology and yet we still let other people think for us. Shame!

7.  Tomatoes! Why is that fruit on EVERYTHING!! Man you can’t even get a salad anymore without them!! They are so gross in their rare form. YUCK… They are slimy and they make you smell if you touch them. The cherry one burrow to the bottom of your salad so you can’t find it till you stabbed it and now you have tomato gew all over your salad. OH and you better read the whole description of your sandwich to know for certain that the slimy prick wont be on it… STOP IT WITH THE TOMATOES

8. Fucking drivers… Ok where I live it is winter and I am convinced that no one lived her last year or the previous 15000 years to know that snow is slick and moist. No one here can drive. If the road is clear then you can drive the speed limit and contrary to belief if it is covered and icy you can NOT drive 20 over. Nope, even if you have a monster truck with 4 wheel drve. What about if it is overcast and dark midday… naw you don’t need your headlights on… It’s cool I really wanted to sideswipe your ass! I mean seriously they let us drive at 16 years old in the country you would think that means we SHOULD have the ability to dive correctly. I am not saying I am a great driver, I am female. At least I am not an idiot!

9. 2 day weekends. It is like a cruel trick. Like here have some time off… No, I take that back come back to work. People hate Mondays because they come too quickly. I really think we all need all Wednesdays off. No more work on hump day!

10. Katy Perry. I am sure she is a swell human being but I really can’t stand her music. No matter what song that woman comes out with I cannot get the catchy non riffs out of my head! I have lost many of days to humming her crappy subpar music. I know this one is  not very kind but seriously I just wish she would have been a one hit wonder hell at this point I just want her to take a few months off. Can she just not put a song out for 6 months?? Maybe even put one out that isn’t on constantly.

Happy Monday all… time for Tuesday

Ringless, Quitness, The king with no crown….

People across the country cheered last night at the Mavericks win over the Heat. It was defiantly a slice into the ego of Lebron James Cleveland, Ohio’s enemy number one. The people in Cleveland take their sports very seriously and even more than that do they take pride in their city. Cleveland is a city packed full of culture and orange barrels. A lot of people leave the city because as unfortunate as it is the city is failing and slowly drowning. Once you are a Clevelander you are always a Clevelander. There are no accents in Cleveland which they have in common with every well trained broadcaster. There is great food in Cleveland, just watch the travel channel or food network. There is sports loyalty in Cleveland and don’t forget it! James left Cleveland as a lot of people do, he left for better opportunity and no one blames him for that. Cleveland is a city who watches the greats leave to get rings and trophies else where but those greats never forget the great city they once called home, some even come back after their careers end. The city has taken this beating before and it will again but James never was a true Clevelander.

James never wanted to be here he always had his sights set higher as a lot of people in Cleveland do. No one in Cleveland disrespects their city though. Complaints on the weather? Yes. Complaints on a lost sporting game? More frequently than anything. Not owning where you are from? NEVER. Betraying families and friends? When hell freezes over will a Clevelander do that to their own blood. James sported NY apparel where ever he went a travesty in Cleveland to say the least. He never claimed to be from Cleveland but always Akron, which is like saying you’re from Hendersonville, TN just a few miles out of Nashville. He packed up and left with out a good bye or a thank you.

Yes, Cleveland’s reaction to the Heat’s loss may seem a bit much to some but remember he quit Cleveland. He openly admitted to quitting in the playoffs and finals. He has shown no sportsmen like conduct in the past year and has shown no signs of maturity or consequence for his actions! Dan Gilbert paid his 100K for his letter. Where was James’ fine for not giving adequate notice to; New York, Chicago or Cleveland? As most of the nation would agree he got what was coming to him minus the few thousand who thinks what he did was OK. To them I say screw you. You are the type of people who quits their  jobs with no notice. The ones who stay on welfare because eight is too early to work and god forbid you work second or third shift. You are the people who wait till someone’s back is turned to stab them. If you can live like that that is fine, but most of us can’t.

Lebron James thinks him self to be a king, hero, an icon. I hate to break it to him but when your hometown disowns you and your first ’boss’ refers to you as “narcissistic, cowardly and disloyal” you will never be an icon. There are many icons that support Cleveland; Bernie Kosar, Jim Brown, Kenny Lofton, Bob Feller, Mark Price, Brad Daugherty and Austin Carr. Lebron James will never be held in the same respect as them. Cleveland doesn’t despise him for him leaving but for the way it was done and clearly they are not alone. Cleveland has become a punch line for any joke but what he did to the sport and to the city was so despicable every one from Letterman to Michael Jordan had something to say. He just proved to the country why is doesn’t always pays to stack the deck. He stacked the odds in his favor and still has nothing to show for it.  Congratulations Mr. James you are still a loser and Cleveland is still a far better place with out you. I hope for your sake and the sake of the sport of Basketball you learn how to play on a team and as a member of a team instead of having it manufactured for you.

To the city of Dallas; Cleveland owes you and thanks you for your ability to master the art of Basketball. You proved to three young, immature professional athletes that winning a championship takes more than talent. You proved that you put in more blood sweet and tears than the other team and your rings show it, if you question your win listen to James’ response to the Heat’s loss. He doesn’t care and is confidant the Heat did all they could, despite his lack of points in the final games. Don’t worry Bosh and Wade next year he will blame you then say he is not a one man team, after all history does repeat it’s self.
