Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us. If the blog seems random, it's because life is and hits us all at 100mph.

PostHeaderIcon This cracked me up

want to hear something funny??? some people from the very forum I ranted about took the time to tell me how pathetic my blog was and how pathetic it was I took 15 min to write it..... lol... when they probably spent more time emoting amongst themselves about =the damn blog... and the funny thing is, they can't see it's THAT behavior that inspired me in the first place... now THAT'S funny.

I was on the phone with a fellow boardie when this was being discussed and OMG... he was cracking up worse than I was....... people amuse me.

To the whiners on my favorite forum, which you have ruined:

You know who you are.... you are that politically correct person who looks for things to whine about. You have taken one of the most interesting forums to hang out on the net and turned it into a namby-pamby-romper-room full of perma-whiners.

You know what? Put your big girl panties on and DEAL WITH IT. For pete's sake!!!!

You know .... if you don't like it don't do it. Don't look at it. Don't watch it. Don't smell it. Just don't.... and whatever you do don't sit there and whine about it. Nobody wants to hear you.

Avoid things you know are going to make you complain. If someone is handicapped they are handicapped. If someone is a midget they are a midget. If they are a different religion, they are. You need to deal with it. Sometimes people are offensive, and you can either walk away or retort wittily back.... but whining makes you appear weak and frankly foolish.

All this PC crap has been pushed to the point of making me want to just
throw up on the next PC whiner that gets near me.

Why is it that people believe that they have to be politically correct? Other than the obvious reasons, like fear of losing one's job, being accused of slander (which by the way is a tough one to prove unless you have hard and fast evidence), impressing others, vying for political office or something just as superfluous in it's needlessness!

I realize that it's the catch-phrase of the decade, but that was the past decade; you remember, the sensitive nineties? How can the 90s have produced such great music and such a group of whiners?

Now I'm not condoning being mean to people and insulting them, even though I firmly believe that there's a time and place for that, but what I am saying is, if you believe one thing but say another, you're lying to the person you're talking to and you're lying to yourself. Sometimes it should be ok to say:

So next time you think about hitting that "report" button to the mods because you whittle feelings got hurt by the mean girl in class.... maybe you should step back and ask yourself why you allow some anonymous poster in a forum get your panties in such a wad.... me thinks you have bigger issues than being politically correct.

......and in case you're wondering, I would LOVE to post this on the forum, but I'd get spanked for TOS violations.....

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
