indeed, bustygirl, indeed.

psst, thereshegoes, i'm almost 100% certain avril is the nerdy girlfriend in the video as well
candycane_girl
I think the "girlfriend" is Avril in a wig. I've always hated Avril, I hate her so called music and I hate that she's one of the many awful Canadian artists that ended up hitting it big. Ugh, I just want to smack her right in the face!


Now I must go listen to some real Canadian music like Broken Social Scene and Metric! gah!
LoveMyPugs
I knew that was Avril dressed as the nerdy chick. I still don’t think the video is a good message. The whole driving a golf ball at the chick’s head while the boyfriend and friends laugh is fucked up. Pulling the nerdy girl out of the photo booth while Avril’s posse stands guard outside the curtain just encourages bullying IMO. I don’t think young women today need to see that kind of competition in a music video. It’s real enough I’m sure.

I also think the way the nerdy girl stomps her little foot when she wants her picture taken in the photo booth is kind of stupid and immature too. If I did that to Mr. Pug he’d just walk away from me and shake his head. He’s not engaged to a fucking child for God’s sake right?

Bustygirl – throwaway pop starlet is right on lady!

Candy Cane – I also feel a very big urge to smack a bitch like her. Maybe we could gang up on her like her posse does in the video. You slap the left side of her face and I’ll smack the right. We could play “Throwaway Pop Starlet In The Middle”

OK, I’m done talking about this cause it’s silly to get so irritated with something so petty.

Hey, don't put Avril down...my local convenience store clerk has her name tattooed on his arm!

news organizations that say "troops" instead of soldiers. grrrrrrr!

politicos who say how dangerous it is to set an exit date, saying it's setting us up for failure. (i'm looking at you, stinkybutt mcain!) in case you haven't noticed, we've failed in iraq. we've failed in afghanistan, take your sticky head out of your stinkybutt, asshole! and how does that change our enemies' plans? it's a civil war, dumbasses! al q inlists people to their cause telling people we are going to stay in iraq forever. we set an exit date and the flame is starved of oxygen. you peoples make me sick!

stupid stupid, extremely stupid reporters who think that the flap about the 8 federal lawyers getting fired has ANYTHING TO DO WITH EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. in order for the people who are being called to testify to claim executive privilege, wolf blitzer, you stupid ass, the people in question would have had to be talking to the president about the firings. it doesn't just cover whoever the president hires when ever they speak. fucking research your shit, dumb fuck. you're the reason that most people don't get why the story is so crucial right now. get it straight.

Cob: getting all involved in a gardening project - getting the container emptied and scrubbed out, getting the old soil and rocks and clay shards separated, getting the plants ready for potting - and discovering a thick layer of mould inside the bag of potting soil, ending the gardening process for the entire day. POOPIES!

Cob: having to explain myself and my whereabouts to friends and family, just because I've been so sick (BEEN, as in, past tense, as far as I'm concerned), when I really just want to be left alone to explore my personal space for awhile.

Cobs:

Fucking rollover ads on webpages that pop up HUGE when you accidentally move your mouse in the tiniest direction. FUCK OFF!

Also, any ads that auto-run audio without your permission. FUCK OFF and stop scaring the shit out of me!

Also, those ads that look like popups but are imbedded in the webpage itself so you have to close them, and especially if you have to wait extra time before the closing "X" appears. (Better Homes and Gardens has one of these on EVERY SINGLE PAGE, and it's always the SAME FUCKING AD for subscriptions...hello, I got it the first twenty-seven times! And it's not like they've even updated any of their online articles in the last two years, either, the pricks, so you wait for the "X" so you can get to the copy, only to discover you've read it before.)

Also, popup ads of any kind.

Cob: People who say "Oh, you're sick again?"
Why yes, you smug assmunch, as a matter of fact I AM. Sorry that MY immune system, or the lack thereof is disappointing or it bothers you so.

Cob: visibly mentally unstable individuals who always seem to be milling about at urgent care centers and hospital ER's, accosting other patients in the lobby. Oh and don't get me started on the lazy ass security who just igone them. Grrrr.

Cob: The astronomical prices of prescriptions, especially for things like antibiotics. The CEO's of drug companies should be quaterdrawn, greedy bastids!

Pimples. More specifically, that really hard, red, painful pimple you get right before your period, no matter how old you are, or how careful and dedicated you are with your skincare routine. GRRRR.

Oh, and once again, friends/family who get annoyed if they can't track your whereabouts for one lousy day. Hello? I am a thirty-eight year old emancipated woman. I'll go wherever the fuck I want and do whatever the fuck I want, whenever the fuck I want to, and with whomever the fuck I want to. It's MY life!!

I haven't gotten one of them since I start using Clinique. It's been over a year now. They were so painful.

People who try and read your e-mail over your shoulder. Uhhh RUDE! Go and FUCK OFF!

People who point out a move when you are a playing a game of some sort. Like solitaire, mah jong, whatever. I don't want your help. You want to point something out, go play it yourself.

When news agencies interview the families of a soldier who died and are all sympathetic, and make it seem shocking that the family is in mourning. Obviously motherfuckers! What do you expect when someone, anyone dies??? It's not normally a song and fucking dance, unless the person was an asshole!

Christ on a cracker, this happens to me as well. I come home to find messages that start off with: "Where are you?????" all accusatory-like, like I'm supposed to be home anxiously awaiting their phone calls.

Who knows? Maybe I am home and I don't feel like talking to them for 86 seconds just because they felt like calling me during a commercial while they're watching American Fucking Id0l.

Or maybe I'm out doing whatever the fuck I want to do with whomever the fuck I want to do it with!

Emancipated indeed.

i have had a gut full of all these media talkinghead's stupid "don imus is a good man," mantra... say what you like about kramer, but he only had one racist episode. imus has a long history of racist, homophobic, misogynistic comments. he knows to walk up to the line and not cross it, but let's not bullshit, that doesn't make him a "good man," only a slighly smarter, well paid biggoted fuckstain with a lot of high rent friends sticking up for him.

oh, that dude? he's just a moron. i was curious because cnn was marketing him as a pragmatist "i don't care if it's democrat or republican, does it make sense?"-- yeah, like he'd know what makes sense....talk about a wingnut...

thingsarenice
Glenn Beck's radio show used to have its moments, but he has long since gone completely insane and his show reflects this fact.

Don Imus: He and his staff regularly referred to black people as "monkeys" among themselves. Nuff said.

My library's requires that I log in EVERY TIME I GO TO ANOTHER PAGE. Someone needs a course in website usability. Along the same lines, sites with huge photos that take years to load and blogs that keep 40+ posts on the front page (usually with huge graphics).

Why can't my man just take out the FUCKING TRASH! WHY, WHY WHY????? I just don't understand it. Really! Can someone please explain it to me. Is this a guy thing? I...uh... just don't get it! Anyone in a long term relationship able to finally get their man to take out the trash? If you have please share the sercret to the big mystery. PLEASE!!!
luleey
yeah...delurking to sympathize with the trash and boyfriend-not-taking-out-of thing. the only way to get him to do it is to ask him. and if he says he's gonna do it later, make sure he actually does!!
missladyj
I came home today and the trash was taken out.

Usually me saying , " No, no, I'll take the trash out" works

Growing up my mother would leave us notes for every little thing she wanted us to do and it always annoyed the shit out of me. I work with women who make "Honey Do" lists for their husbands. I absolutely refuse. Hubby is a grown up and if he can't figure out that the dishes need to be done, or the trash needs to be taken out, then it will sit there till I do it. I am not leaving a grown as man a list of chores to do.

Oh, I have so many of these!

Okay, so I don't drive. I'm 22 and I've never learned how to drive a car. While all my high school friends were zipping around in Mommy's and Daddy's cars/SUVs/trucks/etc., I was using the legs the good lord gave me.

BUT! That doesn't mean I don't FUCKING HATE IT when people don't park properly! I seriously lose my shit when I see a bad parking job. Seriously, you can't take another half-a-minute to straighten out a bit?! I've seen some people even park horizontally across two vertical parking spots to "run into a store" and then take a good half hour or so. I'm going to be getting my license soon because I live out in the middle of nowhere and it's pretty much needed and I fully intend to start leaving horrible parkers notes on their windshields.

I also really hate it when I talk about not wanting to physically have children (I want to adopt eventually; probably in ten years or more when I'm finished being overloaded with student loan debt) and women my Mom's age (50+) are all "Oh, Dear, you'll change your mind! You're still young!" and NO, I won't. I've thought this way since *I* was born! I hate how they are pretty much implying that if I don't have children of my own I won't be considered a successful woman.

Oh AND (last one for now): I live on the east coast of Canada and it is so common and frustrating for people to say "I SEEN" instead of "I SAW" or "I'VE SEEN". It makes me want to punch someone in the neck when I hear it. It's so grammatically incorrect! (Not that I have perfect grammar, obviously, but ugh!)

There are more, I just can't think of them right now. And I don't want to come off as whiny. tongue.gif

Haha, it gets the point across quite well, I believe!

How angry/annoyed does one have to be to punch someone in the neck? I would think VERY. And that's how annoying I SEEN is! It even sounds stupid! Say it out loud, honestly! I SEEN. Pfft!

*Takes deep calming breaths*
LoveMyPugs
I'm going to punch Mr. Pug in the neck if he doesn't TAKE THE FUCKING TRASH OUT! Also, I asked him to do a load of white clothes four days ago. I'm wearing his socks now and I'm a size 8 and he's an 11. Well, when he runs out of socks and comes asking me I'll just shrug my shoulders and look stupid like him when I ask him to take the trash out.

FUCK, FUCK FUCK FUCK!?!?!?!?
girltrouble
****omg!!! neck punching!!!!!****** does a drunken spit take*
Arcadia
I *totally* understand that, LMP.

It's the same with mine. Oh, he'll do all this work around the house that should be done in the summer, but asking him to do laundry is like asking him to walk into hell wearing a parka. I'm the only one in this house that does laundry! While yes, I am thankful that more "manly" things get done around here (cause I don't squat about fixing/building anything), sometimes it would be reallllllllllly nice just to not have to wash all his stankin' clothes! Especially when he owns more than I do!

Good luck with Mr. Pugs! Maybe he'll surprise you!

quite frankly, i am sick of americans. yes, what happened in virginia was awful, and if you are on that campus, or know or are related to some involved, my condolences, but WTF? an entire nation is going to mourn for 30 people dying? are you kidding me? every week in iraq 3 times that many people die in a smaller country with a much smaller population. are iraqi deaths any less terrible? any less scary? are their lives worth any less? daily people are killed thanks to us. good work uncle sam. we have to realize we have no concept of the damage we do world wide. this is like the guy who demands to be seen first at a hospital because he has a papercut, while the guy sitting there all day lost an arm.
anna k
True. It's sad, but I hate the media circus when stuff like this happens, and I didn't know anybody there or didn't even know there was a Virginia Tech.
katiebelle2882
well it IS a little weird you didnt know there was a v-tech lol. i actually know a guy who goes there, but hes ok thank god


girltrouble i agree COMPLETELY (again it seems!) i was saying that to my father. like, 160 people died in ONE day in iraq yesterday. this is a part of peoples lives every day (and not just in iraq). what makes us think we are so special that the entire world should mourn for months about 30 people who died on our soil? clearly, its a tragedy, i am in no way saying its not, BUT nevertheless its still messed up that we make a federal case over something that is an every day occurence everywhere else. so annoying.


PS your analogies, both here and in the porn thread are spot on.
bunnyb
late to the party but it really annoyed me that the leading newspapers in the UK (online and off) ran with the Virginia Tech murders three days running and the deaths in Iraq were sidelined; it's as if "it's not Western deaths, so they don't matter" and that attitude enrages me.

It also infuriated me that they made so much of Cho being Korean when he had spent the majority of his life -his formative years- on American soil.

Another Iraq-associated COB: so Iraqi militia groups are making a target of Prince Harry? Imagine that. It would be petty of me to say "TOLD YOU SO!"
anna k
Yeah, Cho came to the U.S. in 1992 and had an American accent.
skinwithoutscars
yup. only deaths of american college kids are valuable.

also, "we thought it was a domestic" just sounds so dismissive to me, like whatever, dude's looking for girlfriend, dude shoots girlfriend, it happens all the time. which is does. but that doesn't mean everyone has to sound so damn accepting of it and act like it's a justification for police not properly doing their jobs. particularly if the "just a domestic" excuse was what led to the slow reaction of the school.

minor cob: websites that make sounds without warning me/me expecting them to. like, i was reading about a musical artist so the website started playing a song at me! i usually have multiple pages open at once, so i'm not always paying attention to that specific page and it's startling! plus i might have to hunt til i find the page and the freaking shut up button. startling when one is in one's room, alone, and all is quiet!!
