Maybe it's Me

I am in the crabbiest mood!! Okay, not really, I have been worse. This is just a weird mood where I want to be alone, yet I'd like some company. haha! I don't know what it is to be exact, but it seems like there are things that are getting on my last nerve today. SERIOUSLY.

1. We have recently learned that President G-Dub will be gracing out city for the commencement ceremonies of Oklahoma State University. Now, I HATE all things political so please bear mind that whatever I say here is in no way meant to be for OR against the president. Now, to my point. There are a number of people who are rather miffed that the President was chosen to be the speaker and even some who are planning to protest. Protest! WTF?! Seriously, I understand that people have their opinions and whatnot and that they want to make a statement...yeah yeah yeah, I get it...but don't ruin someones graduation because of it. Go to DC, go where ever you want to and state your opinion, I'm all for Freedom of Speech, but don't discount the fact that some people are just happy to be graduating and would like to get through the day without traffic congestion, tension and protestors.

2. Please, for the love of Pete, don't use "There are soldiers fighting and dying for my rights to freedom..." etc. as your excuse to be obnoxious and have a blatant disregard for common courtesies and the people around you. I can assure you, that particular soldier you speak of would be rather salty to discover that he is watching his brothers in arms die so that you can get drunk and disordery at a restaurant without having to take any responsibility for your actions. Go ahead, tell him you appreciate all he's doing for you, I'm sure he'd love to hear it.

3. Lastly, please think about the way you look at or speak to people. If you're in a bad mood, deal with it. You don't have to take it out on anyone. I, for one, choose to blast my anger at the anonymous void that is the internet. You should try it, it feels GREAT! All I'm saying is that those of you who feed on the craft of making people feel inferior, stupid, worthless or unwelcome are merely reflecting your dissatisfaction with yourself. I hope you find happiness along the path of life and you learn how to share joy instead of contempt.

This is where I end my surly mood, grab a pint of Ben & Jerry's and go work on my laundry. Much love!! I'm all better now. I'm sure I'll get some heated emails for that one...but DAMN, PMS is hard. :) Have a great day ya'll!

Hope your day gets better.

I agree that we as Americans have the right to express our view points whether we're the majority or minority, however there's a time and place for everything. I would be sorely disgusted if after 4 years and $40,000 my special day was ruined by a chanting angry mob. Is this the proper forum to display your frustration or anger? Probably not. Run for Senate, Representative, Congress- get your ideas out there and try to fix what you think is broken rather than just grabbing a 99cent marker and writing "Bush Sux" for the sake of making the front page of the news. It's easier to sit at home and spout what's wrong with the world today rather than actually get up and do something about it.
