My co-workers tried to get me all in a tizzy over this dead horse. Some of them even got into a screaming match (no, I'm not kidding) over whether or not the crazy folk deserved a mention in the newscast this morning. (I think no. And for the record, I do plan on buying a fur in the future and if you come NEAR me with paint, I'll have something for you YOU WILL NOT LIKE!!) I think the KD is AWESOME!! Mostly for the hats (duh) and drinks (duh part II).
Tangent: speaking of hats. My grandmother is a seamstress and... A MILLINER!! When I called on her birthday yesterday, she said, "Oh I was just thinkin of you." I said, "You were? Why?" She said, "Because you're very dear to me." Ain't that sweet. Then she said, "I pulled out the dress I made to wear for your graduation to wear today because I was thinking of you." She made it just for my graduation! LOVE! Anyway so she said she's gonna make me a hat. WHO is the most excited person in the world? ME!!!
Tangent 2: I also talked to my cousin who got married Saturday. She said they missed me. Awww! Remember I told you my book club homie (you can skip past everything until you get to the section labeled "My book club") is married to a five-star chef? (The reason I want to marry a chef now.) He catered the rehearsal dinner, all of my cousins went to karaoke together and Sunday morning, my aunt made breakfast for the fam. SO SAD!! Really awful. Blasted ratings period. You suck. And we better win.
Anyway. The reason I really could care less about a dead horse. Because there are fathers allegedly kicking their 2-year-old children and leaving them to die in single-digit temperatures.
And police shooting an unarmed black man on his WEDDING DAY and getting off. Do you see how his fiancee has aged? Wouldn't you? AWFUL.
Because a history-rich city is still struggling to recover from a devastating storm nearly 3 years ago. (And W, you can go to the middle of nowhere, but not a major city to uplift them? You are a hot mess.)
Because gas prices are outrageous. I don't complain because I will buy it anyway. I don't have a choice. But the oldest man in America wants to propose a stupid PANDERING BAND-AID of a solution (to get votes) for a gaping airbus-sized entry-wound of a problem. And Billary wants to jump on board why? Because she is not any different from every administration in my lifetime.
Because children CAN'T READ and you want to give them pennies compared to your dead-end pet project. Speaking of Iraq, WHAT IS THE DEAL!?!? You send people off to war to die because they are poorly supplied and/or overworked or because you're allowing people to make UNCHECKED MONEY, they kill people with their negligence. And let's not forget the widespread scandal. And the those who come back with all manner of injuries (mental included) to THIS GARBAGE!!
Because the economy is in the toilet including, but not limited to, a credit crisis and sky-rocketing foreclosures.
That's only the tip of the iceberg. And you want me to care about a horse. Riiiight. BTW this is not up for discussion. If after reading all of the aforementioned you still want me to get excited about a dead horse, in my book, there is no hope for you when it comes to that and we shall have to agree to disagree.
