With 2013 just hours away, it’s time to reflect back on 2012. If you don’t want to do that, it’s OK – I’ve done it for you. And in my reflecting, I’ve come up with a number of things, or people, that need to go away.
To make my list of “Things That Need to Go Away in 2013,” only one criteria needs to be met… it needs to annoy me. It’s my blog, I make the lists. So here are some things, or people, that annoyed me in 2012 to the point where I’ve decided they need to disappear from the earth forever….
That Gangnam Style guy – and the music, dance and all the other G.S. stuff;
Pretty much all of the members of the U.S. Congress (mostly just the ones who, while they no doubt had calendars in their offices, didn’t think to say anything about the fiscal cliff until the last month of the year, and didn’t think to try to resolve it until the last day of the year. Those guys. Put them all in busses, find an actual cliff somewhere, and push them off);
People who constantly stare at their cell phones (stop it, already);
At least one of the country music award shows (I’ll concede that enough people like country music, for whatever reason, that it might as well give itself awards. But not so many);
The word “awesome” (Unfortunately, this word has been used so much to describe silly, non-awesome things, that it has just lost its meaning. You people who have misused the word “awesome” have ruined it for everyone, so now no one gets to have it. Sorry);
Everyone who chronically misspells words in text messages, emails and Facebook (I’m not talking about occasional misspelling – anyone can do that. I’m talking about people who chronically mix up “lose” and “loose,” and use apostrophes for plurals. Or as they would write it – apostrophe’s for plural’s. Enough is enough.);
The people who always want to name news events (e.g., “fiscal cliff,” and “carmageddon”)
There are more, but let’s just start there for now. With these deletions, it’ll be a happier new year for everyone. Or at least, for me.
Happy New Year!
