Yes, I know - there are WAY MORE than three stupid things in the world - oy! But as it's Three on Thursday with Carole and Kat, and I was in the mood to write a post, but didn't know what to write about, here are three things that just this morning are stupid.
1. This sweater and others like it.
Look - it's either a sweater with sleeves or it's a tank top with no sleeves. This is one of the worst examples of this trend I have ever come across, and if I saw someone wearing this, I would be tempted to trip them walking down the street.
2. The story about the actress Rose McGowan's Twitter account being suspended. I barely know who she is, except that I know she is one of the people who spoke out about that dirtbag Harvey Weinstein. Apparently something she tweeted "violates the rules of Twitter." Frankly, I can't imagine what that might be, as a certain party who is an alleged leader of our country seems to do a lot of insulting, bashing, accusatory, and otherwise inappropriate things on Twitter multiple times in one day, without consequences. I mean, he's threatened nuclear war! This is just another example of why people who have been victims of physical and/or emotional assault don't speak up.
3. OMG this commercial, which I saw this a.m. before I left for work, during a break from the local news.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO x a bazillion!!! It is currently October 12; Halloween hasn't happened yet, and Thanksgiving comes after that, and THERE ARE RULES PEOPLE. (Granted, they are my rules but they make complete sense and should be imposed on everyone.) You may say, well, they threw in the pumpkin flavored pancakes, but no no no no that doesn't mean it's OK. When you show "holiday" stuff with a tree, red and green decorations, and the "Nutcracker" playing in the background, you are not talking about Halloween and/or Thanksgiving. Retailers start putting up displays early because they are selling THINGS. Denny's is selling FOOD, and that's a whole 'nother ballgame if you ask me. (And you didn't, but also know that my rules specifically state no Christmas decorations until Thanksgiving is over. I completely ignore them anywhere until then.) Even if they wanted to pop this up around Thanksgiving, I could live with it. BUT THERE ARE NEARLY THREE WEEKS LEFT BEFORE IT'S HALLOWEEN! Granted, I don't know the last time I visited a Denny's (there are none near me), but that's not the point.
I'm glad to have gotten those things off my chest. Feel free to return to your regularly scheduled day.
