As the rest of the good ol’ USA celebrates our independance…my family celebrates my mom’s birthday. The only problem with that is my neighbors have some sort of unnecessary obsession with fireworks. I like to light shit on fire as much as the next person but not when all the trash comes down on my house/family/food. I’m putting good money on the fact that my dad is gonna have a few choice words with them. I went to the Taste yesterday and it was one of the worst experiences I’ve had. The place was packed and disgusting but what can you expect on the event’s biggest night? I had tickets but the goddamn lines for the food were long so I opted to watch some fireworks. It wasn’t amazing. It wasn’t something that I’ve never seen (although the “smiley face” ones were legit) and it wasn’t fun. The fun came on the trip home. Chicago has some characters and that’s all I’ll say for now. Alright, as someone who rides the CTA quite frequently, I know what to expect on a regular day and on a day when throngs of people come out of their collective shells to watch bullshit attractions. I get it! One of the main things with (people that don’t ride the CTA regularly) is that they lack common courtesy. Example, when you get off the train on a rather busy stop (Kimball Blue Line) there tends to be a lot of people going in the same direction as you so what do you do to avoid congestion when boarding the bus? YOU MAKE A FUCKIN’ LINE! It isn’t that far-fetched when you think about it. The line started with the person who got there first therefore has been waiting the longest and so on. If the line is wrapped around the terminal you don’t go and plop yourself in the front!!!! If you do, you shouldn’t be surprised when everyone (ME included) starts bitching at you.The neat thing is that most of the regulars know that this should be done so on any other day it’s nice and easy. Yesterday three little “emo” MCR kids did this and I made my complaints vocal. When they were going to get off (they missed their stop….karma?) one of the three tapped me on my shoulder and whispered “I like your haircut!” I, along with the lady behind me, laughed. Why? Well if you don’t get the point by now I don’t think you’ll ever get it! I have tickets to waste…errrr….at the Taste so I’m going to get ready and hopefully be back for my mom’s party. hahaha cheers.
Just got out of the gym. Not totally beat but I guess I’m used to running like a mad (wo)man…..thank you Chaz Taft! rofl I was filling up my water bottle and it’s hard not to notice the CNN coverage of Michael Jackson on multiple screens. Everyday I go that’s all they’ve been showing. I know he is forever going to be the King of Pop and I accept that, his music was a huge part of my life growing up. I would sit in front of the television and watch day-long marathons of the Jacksons movie on VH1, hell I’d even quote the goddamn thing but what I’m getting at is simple. I’d like for news outlets to stop reporting on their assumptions. I’d like for them to wait until they have concrete evidence that the statements they are making are legitimate. I know everyone wants to be known for “breaking the story” first but all the faux-posts made really end up making a huge scandal for no reason.
That’s just a thought.
Now how about the Jonas brother that’s engaged? There’s only one reason he’s getting married so young and that’s because he wants to turn in his purity ring. ;)hahaha (now that was uncalled for but that’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw it on the cover of AOL)
