Someone--an old friend from high school--kicked my ass today on Facebook. Literally. He took my profile photo and added it to some animated something or other where he then kicked my ass and sent me flying many feet through the sky where I finally landed near some pyramids.
WTF?! I mean seriously?
See, this is one of those Facebook things I don't get and that makes me snarky. I mean, what am I suppose to do with that? I haven't talked to him in over 20 years. He friended me on Facebook and I accepted. Then he kicks me in the ass? Really?! Is this suppose to be funny? Am I suppose to laugh? 'Cause I'm not.
Supposedly NBC has signed Jerry Seinfeld* to a new show wherein celebrities give struggling couples marital advice. This from a man who wooed his wife after she'd returned from her honeymoon with her first husband. In other words, he's a home wrecker. But because he's funny and he claims humor is the key to a good marriage, we're suppose to take advice from him?
And people are worried about gay marriage in this country? I just don't get it. Heterosexual America needs to take a long, hard look in the mirror and realize gays and lesbians aren't the threat. Or, put another way, "We have found the enemy, and it is us."
Obviously, I'm feeling snarky today. (No?! Really? Whodathunkit?)
I've made the bright, shining realization that perhaps I don't value people as deeply or as meaningfully as they value me. Apparently, my sentiments don't run as deep as I thought they did where friends and loved ones are concerned.
Or maybe they do. I don't know.
All I know is, I like/love people exactly the way I do. If it seems my like/love isn't deep enough for you, I don't know how to fix that or even if I should. Or could. I don't know.
If I don't, don't take it personally. It obviously isn't you. It's me.
Snark over. Back to packing boxes.**
* Just like I'm proud of the fact that I never went to BYU, I'm equally proud of the fact that I've never watched a single episode of Seinfeld. I know I'm in the minority when I say, he just isn't that funny. The appeal is lost on me. Sorry. Like I said, it isn't him. It's me.
** Newsflash: I'm moving. To Washington State. You know? The other Washington? That one. Details at 11:00. Or whenever I get to it.
