2. I have always had little tolerance for people who are too big for their britches, so to speak. This Kanye West at the Grammys thing is just so ridiculous. Who is Kanye to question 'artistry'? First of all, the Grammys haven't been relevant in years! Secondly, Beck has more talent in his little finger than most 'entertainers' have in their whole bodies! Thirdly, have you heard how gracious Beck was after the incident? Gee Yeezy, you wonder why people think you're a douchenozzle? Maybe it's because you are one, a really huge one in a 5'8" body. You aren't even short enough to qualify for a Napoleon complex! Get over yourself and your obsession with Beyonce. Alternative rock is actually some of the best music out there right now. Their lyrics and music style are much better, in my opinion, than anything on Top 40 radio. If you haven't seen it, you should really look up what Shirley Manson (lead singer of Garbage) had to say about it. Perfectly stated.
3. Okay, I know this one is controversial, but can I tell you just how over the 50 Shades of Grey thing I am? No, I have not read the books. No, I do not need to read the books to know they are garbage. Why's that? Probably because it started off as Twilight fan fiction. Also, because I had several friends that I trust who read them and told me how horrid the writing was. Look, I'm all about fluff books sometimes. I read Harlequins from time to time. It's escapism, I get it. However, those at least are written fairly decently. If the writer had promoted it as a Harlequin-type book, I wouldn't be so irked. This is not literature folks. Please visit this lady's blog for a comprehensive analysis of this trilogy. She says it far more eloquently than I. Be forewarned, she does not hold back. Lots of curse words for those of you not amused by such things. She also has a word count at the bottom that tells you in a quick summary all you need to know. 186 uses of the words gasp/gasps/gasping and 777 uses of the words gaze/gazes/gazing. Oy!
4. My cats are being assholes right now. I totally called Gonzo one to his face the other day, because he was being such an asshole of a cat that day. Ugh. I know I should have some sympathy for the guy, he was just diagnosed with diabetes, the poor thing, but he will not stop being annoying! I'm transitioning them to wet food and he tries to eat Princess's food, too. She only eats a little bit, then walks away. He will eat all of his and then try to eat all of hers. So then, I get mad at him and then Princess thinks she's not supposed to eat out of her bowl either, so she won't go near it. Then, I have to put it away in the fridge to save for later, or else Gonzo will eat it all. It never ends. I finally just started squirting Gonzo with a water bottle every time he tries to eat out of her bowl. I'm to the point that I'm just going to let Gonzo start eating her food, maybe she'll get the hint that she needs to eat it all at once.
5. A little game of Never Ever for you...I have never ever seen Jurassic Park, read the Harry Potter books, or seen a celebrity in real life. How about you?
I'm finally to the end. Oh dear, I'm afraid this week's edition of the Tuesday 5 is appallingly bad, boring, or otherwise untoward. I'm sorry, dear readers. I will try to do better next week. Don't forget that I'm now on Facebook. Follow the link at the top to 'like' my page and offer any suggestions for topics of posts or themes for my Tuesday 5. I'm running out of ideas.
