newsflash: i am a bitch strongly opinionated.
this probably won’t be new to many of you. i have strong opinions about many things. music, food, clothing, tv shows, movies.
(on my NOT list: Drew Barrymore. fruity martinis. Fergie. celebrity poker. crocs. Rachael Ray. the zoo. indoor swimming. wet cat food. rhianna. fruit in dessert.)
sometimes i let things slide because i love you…i mean, that’s why Baskin Robbins has 31 flavors, right? not everyone likes the same thing. and i’m learning that this is okay. i mean, come one, not everyone likes Twilight.
sometimes i silently judge you. and sometimes i email some people to bitch to. (and if you are thinking that i’m bitching about you, i’m most likely not. i’m most likely bitching about the dudes who befriend me on flickr who seem like totally normal fathers who take pictures of their cute kids and then you click over to the second page of their photos and find their hairy naked bath self portraits and then you die right there on the spot.) (or if you are judging me for being a McMom)
sometimes i’m just mean…
sometimes i say things like “oh my god, i can’t believe anyone could listen to the new Britney Spears album!” in a meeting full of co-workers when one of them had just admitted to buying it and loving it. (please note: ali has yet to learn how to be tactful in social situations.)
but sometimes, say, when it’s your CHILD, when it’s the fruit of your loins, there’s nothing to do but throw up your hands, wonder where you went wrong, and, of course, videotape it.
my daughter, love of my life, loves Mamma Mia.
what? has she learned nothing from me??? where’s the nature? where’s the nurture? she loves Abba so much that she’s GOING TO BE IN THE PLAY IN THE SPRING. she made me download the movie for her, which i had to do twice, because the first time i downloaded it in CHINESE.
(now before y’all start unsubscribing, like a certain, um, impy, note that a lot of my best friends LOVE Abba and Mamma Mia. and i still love them. Diff’rent Strokes, kids, Diff’rent Strokes…which, incidentally, is a fantastic show. but you might not like it. and i’m totally okay with that. really, i am. but, really, you should download it, because it is made of awesome.)
karma is a bitch, yo!
