1. That new Honey Boo Boo show on TLC. It's disgusting to me that in our country we elevate this type of family to superstardom. And what's that other show? Tiaras and Tots or some damn thing where all the girls look like Jon Benet Ramsey? I believe this show was a spinoff from that show. 

2. Why can't there be a show about a young smart struggling student who does charity work or someone volunteering in the Peace Corps, people saving lives, anything but this? The shit on TV is not helping this generation be wise and honorable. Don't even get me started on the Baby Mamas and those Jersey assholes. 

3. I'm really afraid God is watching TV (I'm sure God gets bored too!) and I'm afraid after watching some of this crap, He might take a hint from the Mayans and just end it all this December. 

4. For God, it would be like changing the channel on the remote. Think about it. And be scared. 

5. Here's an absurdity for you: how come razor blades cost so much money and don't last that long? You just know that they have the technology to make a razor blade that could last all through the summer, (and they should for the money we pay) but nooooooo. I've nicked my legs most when trying to get more life out of my razor blades. 

6. So many drugs for men for their old limp dicks, but nothing to safely help women get through menopause.

7. Eyebrows, nose hair, ear hair that grow out in truly unruly comedic fashion as we get older but hair eyelashes and and the hair on our head gets thinner where we really want more. 

8. Back to Honey Boo Boo for a moment. I've called my husband Boo Boo for many years. (If i ever call him Brian to his face he knows I am getting ready to give him some bad news.) The Boo Boo comes from his initials BBB. Mostly i just call him Boo....but i feel like i need to give him a new nickname now because of this dumbass show. 

9. And aren't they voting for Romney too? I think like McCain had Joe The Plumber, Romney needs Honey BooBoo. Anyone middle class or lower middle class American voting for Romney is an absurdity. 

10. And here's another: Why can i buy a regular physical book in paper form from Costco cheaper than a digital book from Amazon? That makes no sense to me at all. I like to loan out books to friends and it's not as easy if you have an e-book. Seriously, i thought it was going to save money (and trees, right?) but noooo. Greedy bastards, Jeff Bezos who supports charter schools in our state. This is why i am borrowing more from the library. This will dismay my friends as the Jojo Library dries up and closes for economic reasons. 

I have more, but i forgot them. I'll come back. Please add to these!

By the way, amulbunny...i tried to post on your blog and i probably entered a dozen apacha's or whatever those things are called to prove you are not a robot. I have no idea how i could get every one of them wrong when i am not drinking wine. But it kept telling me i was wrong. Maybe i need new reading glasses.

amulbunny's random thoughts said...

I have the same problem. Eyes are tired.

1. HBB is horrible TV. But then this is the network that brought you the Duggars and their litter.
2. Sensible programming doesn't sell ad dollars.
3. Let God wait a while, 21 Dec is my wedding anniversary.
4. I call my husband Rab. His initials are RAB. The other things I call him when I'm upset are unrprintable.
5. My son now works at an LA County Library. I go online and reserve books in his name. People must wonder why all the Sookie Stackhouse books are under his number.
6. I also haunt used book stores. There are gems to be found.

Hey amulbunny! I like that you call your husband RAB. My husband's initials are BBB and his friend Duncan calls him "Three Bee" which is think is very clever.

I need to change this blog cause it's Sunday but then i figure with only 2 posts a week later, why bother. So i think i will go watch TV instead.

EoDE here…

My work requires me to spend a lot of time looking at a computer screen, so when I read for pleasure, I’d rather look at the printed page. I use the library or if I can’t find what I want, I check the used bookstores. I almost never buy books new.

A short list of absurdities:
1. Connectivity via smartphones/Facebook/Twitter: They were supposed to help people stay in touch, but it seems like people are more connected with their devices than they are with other people. I've watched customers in restaurants ignore their spouse/family/companion(s) in favor of playing on their iPhones. It's mind boggling.

2. Then again maybe they’re distracted by the price of eating out: $15 for a salad? $3 for a glass of iced tea? The ingredients for these items are cheap, can be bought in bulk, and don’t require much in the way of prep. It’s ridiculous (and not in the good way).

3. Words like ridiculous now being used to mean something other than the original definition. I'm old and I can't keep up!

Hey EoDe! I totally agree on the people being in touch with their devices and not people! I also hear what you say about reading for work on the computer and liking to read a real book for pleasure. My problem is they take up so much valuable real estate in my little abode that some books i just need to get on Kindle. For example, hardbacks. I never really did like buying those anyway, but sometimes i can't wait for it to come out on paperback.

I'm live blogging the debate tomorrow! I hope some of y'all check in!

EoDE again:

I totally get the taking up space part, because books do take a lot of room. We are in the process of thinning our collection for that very reason. That's what makes Kindles/Nooks great for traveling too.
