Why do people think it’s a good idea to call up radio stations and use fake voices (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Beavis, etc.) to give that station praise for being so awesome?
It just makes those people look stupid.
Why is it you always have to opt out of something no one wants to be in and opt into something you’d be insane to want out of?
ACW just made me a happy little flower by telling me about the Verizon wireless opt out so that my phone doesn’t get spammed by businesses I don’t want calling it. Fuckers. (Not ACW, he’s only one man. I mean Verizon.)
Why is it that if I forget to pay the trash people and they send a past due notice I freak out and apologize all over the statement and send them extra months of payment in addition to last month and this month, but if the phone company sends me a past due notice I say, “deserved, fuckers”?
Monsieur Spéncèr Pâtton sent me this image last night:
… which triggers us both to wonder:
A. Why is the US Immigration and Naturalization Service reading X-Rated Material on their business computers?
B. Why did they choose Spéncèr’s blog to visit after visiting mine? (Is it because of the accents on his name?
C. Why did they spend oodles of time poking around his entire site after? (Not represented in the image.)
Mel, did you send them over?!
My YouTube page showed that my 3 dog videos and the geese video each had been viewed over five times, with several refreshes of the page over the last day showing that same data. I just refreshed my YouTube page again and now all the videos are showing views less than 5. Why would that be? All my other video view counts look correct. Very strange… I just viewed all the videos again through my blog to make the counts go up and none of them went up. That’s more than very strange. Is this bizarro world?
I’ve learned lately that many people who read my blog are Catholic, although perhaps not practicing. Have I ever mentioned? (yes I have.) that I am not Catholic?
I was born a Methodist and it never quite took. The only good thing that came out of my association with the Methodist church is that I got to crush on the same boy for 7 years of my younger life and that I continue to be invited to a barbecue and auction every July 4th at which most of my maternal family gathers. … Yup, that’s about it.
I’m not willing to admit my full philosophy about spirituality. I am willing to reiterate what I’ve mentioned before which is that I think Buddhism is the closest organized religion that matches my belief system. I won’t be enlightened in this life, but I’m confident I’ll come back a few steps closer in my next life.
Hay is Catholic and has all that Catholic guilt associated with it, which to me is such a foreign concept I can’t relate at all. Sure, I’ve had guilt in my life, but I seem to have lost it along the path of my life. It’s really just not anywhere to be found anymore, and I prefer my life this way. I’m not interesting in having my life ruled by fear, guilt, regret, Other People’s Rules. I do still follow basic societal rules, but I enjoy bending them a bit.
I’m really asking this more to myself, because it’s been bugging me a lot lately, but I am wondering: Will I ever be fully accepted by a Catholic if I myself never ever intend to be Catholic myself? If I live my life in a way that is so far from the life that a good Catholic is supposed to live? If I have such a different belief system that I quietly agree to disagree with your own? I definitely feel like an outsider on this one, and it bothers me that two people can be so incompatible but just because they have religion in common they are somehow more bonded than I can ever be just because of this one little matter of spiritual beliefs. And it bothers me that two people can be so compatible but religion will always divide them at a core level. Irritates the piss out of me, in fact.
Deep, I know. Happy Monday.
