First, over-used words: tapas and bullying. "Tapas" is a Spanish word used for, basically, appetizers. Call them fraking "appetizers" unless you are at a Mexican restaurant for the love of goodness. And, with the word "bullying", if some kid just looks at yours wrong, it isn't bullying. They are just assholes.
Now, general snarkiness about crap I am sick of hearing about:
Whitney Houston drowned because she was high on 5 different things. S.h.o.c.k.e.r. Now shut the hell up about it. She wasn't a great person and, no matter how often you talk about it, not one damned person is going to take a life lesson away from this. If they did, this shit would have ended with Janis Joplin. And, no, just because she was famous doesn't make her a special case or more susceptible to it.
The Trayvon killing. I am sorry this young man died, but we DON'T KNOW exactly what he was doing or what happened. The guy who killed him was a jerk, especially because he has not come out of hiding to tell his side of the story. How about we not automatically call this a case of racism and start rioting in the streets until we know the facts people.
Pink Slime. The fraking pink slime. Let me let you in on something people. If it isn't that, it will something else. You want your kids to eat better at school? Then PACK THEIR LUNCHES YOURSELF! Take if from me when I say that the shit they serve in schools is the grossest, most un-appetizing, unhealthy stuff on the planet. Gone are the days of the 80's when food was cooked fresh in the cafeteria. It is all shipped in in frozen boxes that have been sitting on a dark shelf some where for goddess knows how long and then put in to a convection oven. And all those lovely fruits and veggies? They are pre-cut in bags that have a shelf life of MONTHS, if not, in some cases, YEARS. How do I know? Many many years in schools and cafeterias.
That is it for now. Lucky you :). These are just things I am absolutely sick to death of having to hear and/or read about on a daily basis.
On the up side, "Angry Birds Space" came out. Yea.
Peace, Love and (shut the frak up please!) Zombies \IiiI
The "Hunger Games". Nuf said.
