The always amazing Hecate has turned me on to a little thing called the Airing of the Grievances which is a part of Festivus. Apparently this holiday was spawned by the insipid show "Seinfeld" but I don't care. I think we need a chance to get things off our chest. George Carlin once did something similar with a list of things he said he was "bored with, tired of and pissed at. So get ready for a little free floating hostility". So, I'm going to do the same now that the holidays are mostly over.
1. Fucking pipes. No, not pipes that fuck, but rather water pipes that burst after thawing from a freeze. In a time when people can live in space, we can crack the human genome and share orgasms with people on the other side of the world why can't we have water pipes that won't freeze and blow the fuck up once they thaw?
2. Unoriginal content on blogs. Come on, folks, we all include some historical information or poetry on our blogs but can't you say anything original? Yeah, it's nice to include the history of this tradition or that god, I do that too, we all do. But don't you have a sincere opinion about said material to go along with it? I have no respect for folks who do nothing more than copy and paste an encyclopedia entry and call it original. Pisses me off.
3.Lazy people who get angry and turn self-righteous and sanctimonious when asked to do something. So you don't want to expend energy on something difficult? So what? No one wants to work their ass off for nothing but we do it anyway. And, somehow, we manage not to grumble like pouting children who don't want to pick up their toys. Life IS work, anyone who tells you different is selling something. Get over yourself you lazy, do-nothing sack of shit. Don't be a waste of space; prove you're worthy of life.
4. Finally, my last bitch is for Israel. Ya know, I don't care that we're supposed to be allies. I don't care if the formation of the country of Israel was a sign that I will soon be left behind. I don't give a shit. 225+ people, mostly policemen but also civilians, are dead. Over 700 have been injured. And for that you suck.
There, just a few things that are currently boiling my brain. And, now that I've bitched a bit about them, I feel a little better. In fact, I think I may make this a recurring event on this here blog. What's pissing you off today?
