Small stuff

They say you shouldn't sweat the small stuff. Or is that smell the ball stuff? I can never figure that one out.  Yet here we are, dealing with the small stuff.  In other words.....BULLETS!!!
  • I really don't get politicians. I mean, you might like Michelle Bachmann or you might...not like her.  But for a person to have gotten as far as she has in politics, well...you have to respect her...savvy.  You can see how difficult this is for me. What I don't understand is why she just won't apologize for the HPV vaccine/mental retardation comment. All she had to have said is that it was irresponsible for her to repeat an undocumented claim, and we all could have moved on.  It's now going on a week and people are still talking about it. And she still hasn't said she was wrong.  The fucking ego on these people.  And by "these people", I mean all politicians.  I'd have far more respect for any of them if they just admitted to fucking up every once in a while.
  • I see those photos of that teenager who caught an 800-lb alligator with a fishing rod and some kind of stick with a bullet on the end of it.  And I can't help thinking that the wrong species won out in that fight. 
  • Was it me, or were there a lot of gay soldiers running around on the Internet yesterday?  Not that there is anything wrong with that.
  • Watched Bridesmaids last night with Gia. I thought it was funny, and a pretty good movie with some excellent performances.  It just wasn't the "howl out loud laughing" flick I thought it was gonna be. Maybe I've just got the wrong plumbing downstairs.
  • The Fall Television season has started.  I'm gonna try to be good and not add a bunch of new shows onto my DVR list.  But Up All Night with Christina Applegate and Will Arnett is one that we are going to give a chance.  Both of them are really funny people, and I hope it works out.
  • Speaking of funny television, the season premiere of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia aired last week.  And it was an awesome one! Alanna Ubach's crazy crack whore character stole every scene she was in.  Amazing!
Is six enough for a bullet post? It'll have to be. I'm tired.

I always believed that a politician who told the truth would have the backing of the people.

Unfortunately those that tell the truth get sacked before the truth gets out there.

Then we hear "soandso has handed in their resignation and we are sad to see them go" speach from another bullshitter.

"No, it's okay. I just have a touch of consumption!"

Elise - It's all bullshit.

Paticus - The consumption bit killed me. :)

Come on! When the bride shits in the in street that's not "howl out loud laughing" Jesus I peed in my pants!

B.E. Earl said...

Becky - BAM! Mind control, bitches...mind control! ;)

Suzi - That was by far the funniest scene in the film. I may need to re-watch that part.

Slyde said...

oh, you certainly have the wrong plumbing downstairs, alright....

I still haven't seen Bridesmaids.
Politicians - can't live with 'em, can't... live... with them...

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - the plumbing comment was just for you, pookie-bear.

Sybil - Or the other thing. :)

That aligator catch photo was pretty wild.

Bridesmaids is on my list of DVDs to rent from Redbox.

So far, How I Met Your Mother season premier was good. Waiting for Big Bang Theory on Thursday to see how that will be this year. I plan to not be disappointed.

Marty - I used to love HIMYM, but the format has grown stale for me. And I really can't stand Ted. Shame, because the rest of the cast/characters are stellar.
