The problem being ...

I tried flax seed oil for the first time this morning and almost barfed all over the kitchen floor. But I managed to choke it down and then quickly shoved about sixteen strawberries in my mouth to mask the oiliness and flavor of it.

I've been told this is not the optimal way to take flax seed oil, but I don't feel like mixing it with anything else or putting it on my toast or whatever (I can't eat toast right now anyway - carbs are my enemy!). This junk is supposed to be chock full of Omega 3s and 6s, and basically it's supposed to turn my body into a walking baby incubator. All babies who decide to be incubated here shall turn out twenty percent smarter than your average dumb babies.

That's what they tell me.


I'm sort of annoyed with the Internet today. So many people on it are negative nellies. No matter what you do or say, it's wrong. Even if it's something totally harmless, like St. Patrick's Day.

Today is St. Patrick's Day, which is a silly Irish holiday on which whoever wants to can wear green, eat corned beef, and drink green beer. The end. And yet some people managed to be irritated about it and vent on the Internet. It's just a bunch of jackasses wearing green and getting drunk, you numbnuts. Get over it.

People get pissed off about everything on the Internet.

They get pissed off at people who refuse to get pissed off at stuff. They want everyone to be VIGILANT. You must vigilantly oppose something, at all times!

It makes me think of when I was a kid and my sister and I used to whine about everything. We didn't want to go for a ride in the car. We didn't want bologna sandwiches. We didn't want to take a nap. Finally my parents said that we'd better stop complaining and for good measure we'd better not say anything at all unless we had something nice to say.

So I stopped talking and haven't spoken since, until yesterday.

Just kidding.

Anyway, I just thought I'd send a passive aggressive message to the Internet today, and that is: I am pissed off about you being pissed off all the time. Quit that shit. Thank you.


  1. i agree. i've noticed a lot of whiney, hateful bloggers on the internet lately.

    when you throw in the occassional hate session, it can be funny. when you complain about everything, all the time, you're just annoying.

  2. I agree!
    Is it the whiney season?

    This chick that I knew eons ago from high school "friend-ed" me on Facebook. Every single post from her is some negative Nelly post about how much people suck and how she always gets taken advantage of and poor me, poor me poor me. Until the other day when she posted how pissed off she was at all the people on Facebook that just post nice or pleasant status updates about how great life or their families are. She went on to say that she thought people should just keep it real and voice out all their dirty laundry, family drama and crap to the general FB population, and if you don't you're just some fake person pretending to be happy. WOW really?
    I tried to see her point, but all I kept thinking is... if I'm really having a hard time, you won't find out about it on FB. You will know because I have called you and told you. That's what friends and family are for!!

  3. TILTE - agreed!

    Jennifer - Ohhh man. That describes one of my facebook friends to a tee. I finally had to block his updates because they were too enraging. Now I feel much better! :-)

  4. i have been feeling this way about humans in general lately. it seems like the nicer i try to be, the more jerky people get!

  5. So agree. Not only are people whiny, they're generally insane in seems.

  6. hahha what gets me are a few bloggers {who i actually read} who post "st patricks day isnt my thing..." or "ive never been a fan...or celebrated st patricks day..." and then they go on posting about green cupcakes or car bombs or green living rooms. its like, then shut up!! hahha :)
