I Got Nothing But Snark Today

January 7, 2010

I was going to write about the most recent gun incident in my son’s school but I’m saving that for another time. I just don’t want to write about that right now.

I have nothing to write about today so feel free to move on if you like, I’m just going to babble on for a bit.

For some reason I am in a really snarky mood. I’m not in a bad mood and nothing bad happened to me but for some reason I am only able to come up with snarky comments today and so far it has irritated a few people.

Why do people post music videos on their blogs? I’m not talking about classic videos or old stuff that is fun to come across but the current top 40 videos that some people feel the need to share. I’ve run across Beyonce and Halo a couple of times today already. I get that it might be a slow day, and some people have nothing to say but still feel the need to post, but put some South Park up instead.

Apparently Kate Gosselin got a new hairdoo. Is this news? Really? What is news is that it took 20 hours. She had a crappy hair cut before but 20 hours? I could have fixed it in about five minutes with a nail clipper.

On the darker side Artie Lange, a guy on the Howard Stern show, attempted suicide by stabbing himself 9 times. Ouch. Man, there are easier ways to off yourself than by stabbing.

I made an awesome chili earlier this week, a big chili which no one else wants to eat. So I have been eating it at least one meal a day. Even the dog won’t come near me now. I’m probably contributing to our worsening green house gases.

I saw the movie Precious the other day. I didn’t like it for a lot of reasons. Sorry Jayne. I did see 2012 and had a blast. The story was silly and the message was corny but the world falling apart was way cool. I only hope it’s that cool to watch when it happens in 2 years.

It’s still really cold here.

    I can’t even stand a papercut let alone stabbing myself 9 freakin times. How do you get past the first one? Didn’t it hurt?!

    I’m good with snark. And, um, because of the chili, am glad it is from a safe blog distance (-:

    Cheer up Charlie! Don’t make me send you a music video! (-:

    “Precious” is not for everyone, but then… what is? Thanks for the link though, my friend.

    As for 2012, I just happy to have been born when I was, grown up when I did and, with any luck, I’ll get off the planet before it all turns to shit. If that’s in 2012… Check please!

    I could have done Kate’s do in a minute. Buzz cut! Ala Brittany Spears! I’m getting to dislike her more and more each day. She is not news. I agree completely.

    How does one stab themself more than once? I mean, unless the guy was hopped up on drugs or alcohol one would think one would be in too much pain to try again.

    I haven’t seen Precious yet, but I want to. I’ll wait for dvd for 2012. Looks like it might be good. Hoping to see The Blind Side this weekend. It’s on the 5 buck club at our local theater, so it’s a bargain. Maybe if Friday is a snow day we’ll go and I’ll let my kids sit away from me and I’ll pretend I don’t know them. Lol!

    I’d take some of that chili. Love chili. I made a huge pot of potato soup yesterday. Care to trade?

    I am cracking up over this. Now I gotta go and see the new do….don’t have a specific reason other than morbid curiosity like when you see a car accident on the freeway.

    I eat, breathe and sleep snark. Kate’s new hairdo. Sorry, lady. You might at well shave your head and start over. I’m into chili big time in the winter. I’d be happy to take some off your hands. With a nice crispy chunk of French bread to dip into it? Oh, man. Bring it on and all the after effects. I don’t care and if anyone else does, well then, they can just leave the room until it clears out.

    Laura: Me too. I can think of a million better ways to go than hurting myself that way. I’d overdose myself, hopefully getting a really good high and maybe some hallucinations with it, of course if I had that much fun I wouldn’t want to go. Apparently there were six practice wounds and three really good punctures. And he is still alive. Why not just slit your wrists? Not that I want him to, I don’t and hope he gets help (I have no idea who he is) but really what a horribly painful way to take a stab at it. Sorry couldn’t resist.

    mrsblogalot: You are good with snark but you always do it so nicely. I wasn’t so nice today. I rained on a whole group of people, worse, I kinda enjoyed it just a little. Which might explain why I spend a lot of time alone.

    Jayne: The thing is I wanted to like and when it first ended I did like it, but then I thought about it and I didn’t like it anymore. And naming the kid Mongo was just something. However Mariah Carey’s part was interesting. As for 2012 if it’s the Rapture, I’m going to be left behind, I already know this. If it’s a comet or something I’d want a first row seat. Flooding not so much.

    Queen: as soon as I finish up here I’m on my way over.

    Lola: I like the buzz cut idea, I bet Jon might want to do that one. I’d like to see The Blind Side and I almost want to see Avatar but I already did three hours in the movie theater when his other movie came out, the one about the boat.

    Lola: I used lentils instead of chili beans because I didn’t want to make a trip to the store for just some beans, I also used black beans, and it was awesome if I do say so myself. I also used Chili 3000 from Penzey’s (Google them, they are an awesome spice shop). And I am able to put my son to shame.

    Lee: Kate is a car accident. I can’t believe how much attention all of them get, same goes for the octomom. What happened to celebrities who actually had talent and that we could look up to? Jimmy Stewart for example. I wish I could think of more…

    Kathy: I’ve never done chili with French bread, I usually use Premium crackers and some cheese. Now I’m going to have to get some French bread, “Kathy said so”. I just realized as I sit here typing that I can actually levitate myself, which is kinda fun in a way.

  • Reply Lola January 7, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    I always use whatever beans I have in the house. Sometimes as many as 6 kinds. I like it on the spicey side too.

    Artie has nothing on a local priest. He was accused of child molestation and jumped from from an abandoned church’s choir loft, attempting to commit suicide. The choir loft was only 20 feet from the church floor.,Joliet-bishop-apologizes-JO010110.article

    Lola: We had a priest here, actually just across the Hudson, WI border who did the same thing. Dumbass! My guess is that the accusation was right on or he wouldn’t have jumped. I hate those kinds of people, the ones who hurt little kids. Dumbass.

    Becky: Ha! you do do Minnesota nice, I knew it. As for the people who don’t know what to do with the shower bomb, didn’t the pay attention in class? I got it the first time you told me. It’s not rocket science. I’m getting to the post honey, it’s just been crazy around here.

    LOL, it’s the same reason people send emails, and you get excited, open it (thinking they actually want to communicate with you), and it’s just another joke… one that made the rounds last year, and the year before that. Or they send sensationalistic rumor emails but never check whether there’s any validity to it. Can’t figure out if they have no real social skills or they’re just lazy.

    It is probably the chili and the chill. It is sad to read about people attempting suicide. Stabbing oneself 9 times … it may be easier to live instead? Then again, I wouldn’t know what they were going through.

  • Reply Don E. Chute January 7, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Ummmmmm, Chili sounds good. Plus, I love farting with dogs around, caus you can blame it on them. It’s stillllllll cold, here too. I think the weather is broken, and it’s AlGored’s fault. Snarky is such a good word, it needs to be used more. Thanks.

  • Reply Buggys January 7, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    We love snark! We search it out each day. Kate has a new hairdo? I missed out on this breaking NEWS? I need to get out more.

    Thank you, you saved me from reading Yahoo News. I did see Kate’s new hair-don’t though, a nail clipper, huh. Oh, and thanks for the movie reviews, I can’t wait to see 2012.

    Your snark = my laughter x snorting + choking. It’s the new math.

    I don’t know exactly how weird this is, but my post later today extols Kate Gosselin and my desire to totally hit that.

    And now..the new hair?


  • Reply RedRaider January 8, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    My kind of girl! Keep up with the snarky attitude. It doesn’t hurt and it’s fun to see how your mind really works. As far as Kate Gosselin’s haircut goes, if she’s not bald-she’s hot!

  • Reply Linda Medrano January 8, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    First the suicide method I recommend. Let two slices of rye bread sit on a plate for two days. Toast the bread. Smear it with chunky peanut butter. Put it on a plate and take it to a room and lock yourself in. Have no water available or anything else you can possibly drink. You will probably choke to death and everyone will think it’ s an accident., which is better for the kids and the insurance for that matter. Should you live, you will not have to go make lunch either.

    Second, I too make stand up “slap your mama” chili. Okay get an english muffin and toast it, put on some cheddar cheese and top that with a tomato and broil till the cheese melts. Top this with a poached egg and put chili over the whole thing. You will not even think about suicide after you eat this.

  • Reply Surfie January 9, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    I can’t believe that moron woman spent $7K on HAIR. Especially after she had the nerve to go on and on whining about how poor she is. Boo freaking hoo. I didn’t even like them or the show before it all fell apart. Now I really hate her and John (Jon?) But at least she finally fixed that horrendous hair of hers. It looks much better now, and for what it cost, it darn well oughta!

    Mmm…chili! I have the same problem as you when I make a big batch of something (and when there are only 2 people in the household, everything is a big batch!) and am left being the only one eating it. Needless to say, I never make chili more than once a year, if even that often. There isn’t any way to make a small batch of chili!

    I’ve never heard of Precious, but I’ve seen clips of 2012. Have you ever watched Life After People on the History channel? They had a marathon on the other weekend and I watched almost every episode. I couldn’t walk away! It was fascinating.

    Now I feel bad, I posted a music video this past week. It was an 80s video (since that is the only kind I post), but we all know that the 80s are top 40, not classics at all :). I hadn’t heard about Kate’s new ‘do, but I have to admit, I like it better. Not sure if it’s news, but I do like it.

    Dorothy: You are right and I have relaxed. In fact I haven’t yet gotten to the drawers this weekend.

    Kristy: I had to read this and the post over a couple of time to figure out that you were referring to the music videos. I agree, don’t post or at least pick something interesting.

    Dewi: Um, feel free to drop your card on me, which will force me to drop mine on yours. Other than that I took a look at your blog and can’t make heads or tails of it.

    BK: Me neither. I have known a few people who have taken their own lives and I have never understood how things could be that bad.

    Don: The dog gets blamed for most of the farting around here. Funny thing is the cat farts more than he does.

    Buggys: I need to get out more too otherwise I would have had something to write about.

    Margo: If you love movies where things get blown up you will love 2012. The special effects are fantastic. And Woody Harrellson is great in it.

    PJ: I made you snort? Wow, thanks.

    Moog: You’d totally hit anything.

    RedRaider: Really? you guys think she’s hot? Is that only the guys who are into s&m or who have already been emasculated by marriage?

    Linda: You put some thought into this method I see. English muffin and chili sounds really good.

    Surfie: I didn’t know she spent 7K on her extensions. That might have paid for a therapy session for each child. The woman does not have her priorities straight. I have seen Life After People and got sucked into several episodes but lately I have been all about the Nostradamos Effect and all the apocalypse shows. I need to be prepared.

    Anne: When I mentioned classic videos I was referring to 80’s videos so don’t feel bad. One of the best videos is Money For Nothing with Mark Knopler (or is it Dire Straits) and Sting. Awesome song and video. I’d watch that over and over again. As well as anything by Madonna, Culture Club, Prince, Even Whitney Houston. And the Ah Ha video Take On Me is the all time greatest video ever. So feel free to keep posting 80’s videos, they rock.
