Friday Mental Massage: Foul Mood Friday

It all started yesterday when a friend told me he was in a bad mood.

Funny, I thought, I’m in a pretty good mood.

From that second forward I have been in a downward spiral of bitchiness that is rivaled only by a few other irrational things (the exceptionally inebriated or mentally imbalanced being a couple of good examples). I am pretty sure I can identify every single reason for the mood. It’s all rather petty stuff that’s not worth five seconds of discussion. And no, I’m not going to spend six hours dissecting my stupidity.

I’m just going to bitch.

  • He’s not a man, baby–It’s not a slow news year. There have been a few things going on. So, why is it that the mainstream news media is all jacked up about a woman who has been through hormone therapy having a couple of babies. There is a woman at the local Wendy’s who has a beard and probably more than a couple kids. She isn’t on Oprah. When my buddies start getting knocked up, call me. Until then, take your not-yet-a-man-man and let him have all the babies in the world. He’s not a man, baby. (And, let me say, to all my transsexual readers, don’t take this as an affront to your life–I’m pissed at the media making a story out of a non-story, not your need to have a penis or a vagina).
  • It’s not Christmas, baby–It’s every trite bitcher’s fall back subject at this time of year, but Christmas carols on November 12? I was in the Charlotte airport a couple nights ago and they were playing carols over the loud speaker. I’ve decided to say screw it. If you guys can start celebrating Christmas a month and half early, I’m going to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Green beer and insobriety from now until March.
  • You don’t love God, baby–As I was writing this, my buddy Marty sent me this under the heading, “South Carolina, home of open thought and reasonable discourse.” I mean, for the love of all that’s holy…
  • Pardon me, but I’m crawling into a hole until April.

    1. THANK YOU for finally saying it “HE IS NOT A MAN!” – now can the rest of the media world stop wasting my pressure TV viewing hours on this crap.

      Now, if The Rooster gets knocked up, THAT IS NEWS!

      I listened to AM talk this morning and the priest/communion/Obama thing was THE only topic.

      I’m a Christian. I voted for Obama. Am I now less Christian than those who voted for McCain?

      How about adultery? That’s one of those big ones, ya know. Jesus says the Pharisees: “And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery…”

      If all sins are equal in the eyes of God, does this mean that those who voted for McCain should not be allowed communion until they repent?

      I got pissed off about Christmas when I saw the first “holiday” commercial on OCTOBER 26. I’d just gone back to the hotel room after the Chicago concert (hey, I had to cave in and see them at some point, right?) and damn if there wasn’t some stupid ad for Christmas blaring at me.

      I officially hate the holidays.
