And I’m just sitting here with my cat, eating chex mix.
Here’s 3 Things that Need to Get Their Shit Together and 3 Reasons Why October 2012 Sucks.
October has been a terrible month. No, no, no, relax none of my cats died and i even landed a job. So, yes on the surface it looks like a pretty good month. But dig a little, get under the skin…..
First: NO RED OCTOBER. I love baseball, I love playoff baseball even more. and being that I am from the wonderful city of Philadelphia that would make me an avid Phillies Fan. Now, I’ll be the first to admit and concede to members of the older generation philly residents, I “don’t know nothing” about suffering when it comes to philly sports. The phillies have a world series win, a pennant win and consecutive playoff appearances from 2007 to 2011 and entered into the 2012 season with high hopes. I don’t hafta get into the details of how the season ended up.Only that the Phils certainly did not live to their potential and need to take this extended off season to get their shit together.
Next: NO HOCKEY. i’m going to tell you about the intense fan of hockey that I am. Or i just did. I’m not just saying a Flyers fan, all of hockey. When it ends in June, I immediately start a countdown to October, the start of the hockey season. When i heard the rumblings of another lockout back in the summer, i refused to believe this would actually occur, because didn’t we just do this like less then 8 years ago. Welp, i dont think I have to go into too many explanations…. its October 24th and there’s a Lockout. I dont care about the sides ….the players, the owners, shut up everyone needs to get their shit together. I’m clearly on one side and one side only, the Fans.
Finally: MY INABILITY TO ENJOY SOCIAL MEDIA. THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. The first thing I need to get off my chest about this situation is every single individual shut the eff up right now. please just 30 seconds of silence. Next thing i need to say is, i consider myself a well informed individual but still know that I do not know enough to start spouting off and preaching. I also vote in every. single. election. including the primaries. Now, that being said, I did not sign up for Face space and Twerting world and Tumble weeds with the realization that i was going to hafta deal with my feeds, walls, dashboards and timelines inundated with ignorant political posts about this that him and her. Do you ever vote in non presidential years? how bout a primary? how bout this….DO YOU KNOW WHAT A PRIMARY IS? and maybe I would be able to handle these “insights” if they were you know “hey here’s my opinion i’d like to share this with you and be civil and if we disagree i will continue to be dignified and understand that everyone has there own views” ….. Stop. everyone just Stop. Get you shit together and realize that I’m just here for the cute cat pictures and recounting the latest debacle you and vodka got yourself in so i can have a good laugh.
Here’s My Solution
Me for President of the United States, Commissioner of the NHL and Somehow involved with the Phillies because I’m inspiring.
Now shut up. Everyone.
That statement should effectively end your political rants immediately, end the Lockout and effectively put the Phillies on track to be the World Series Champions in 2013.
And I can once again enjoy life in October. Until all that happens, I’ll be on Pinterest pinning Star Wars Pins and Flamingo Pictures.
