True Story of a Dumbass and a Phone

Getting my haircut has always been a huge annoyance. First, I don't like phone so I don't make appointments. Second, I don't like people touching me. This makes it difficult to allow someone to wash my hair. Third, I don't like taking the chance of sitting there so long with a person who turns out to be an idiot or perhaps just annoying. Well, this past Saturday was finally the day and I went to get it done. 

This is not the particular dumb-ass I'm speaking of; it's my haircut.
As most people know the chairs at the hair salon are pretty close together so it's quite easy to hear the conversation next to you. The first part involved a young girl having stolen quite a large of amount of things from different stores at the town center. Apparently, she kept grabbing stuff and going back to her car and the trunk was full. 

The next part of the conversation involved a very touchy subject for me; texting and driving. I almost die on a daily basis because people have their faces shoved in a phone. I get on my mothers and friends nerves because I yell at them to put their phones away while driving because I would rather not go out like that. 

This guy tells a story of himself texting and driving. He even adds sort of driving and laughs. HE LAUGHED. Then he goes on to say he hit an intersection. He messed up the front end of his car this time. He's also done it before. He still thinks this is funny because he then had to get in his car because there was a little bit of alcohol involved and he couldn't face a cop.

This true story also involves him stating it was someone else's fault. 

If we've learned anything from Oprah and the show Glee it's that you don't text and drive. QUINN IS IN A WHEEL CHAIR FOR GOODNESS SAKES!!!! If we don't care about the characters of Glee and what they have to teach us then what do we care about?

By the way there was a study that stated driving and talking on the phone was the equivalent of being intoxicated because YOU CAN NOT DO TWO THINGS AT ONCE. This is scientifically proven so shut up with your excuses. If this is the case, how bad do you think texting and driving is?

Maybe I should get my hair cut more often. Plenty of dummies of the week for me to talk about.

Sutton Foster or Patti Lupone? Both.

"Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway."Ethel Merman

When I was 18 years old I went to my first Broadway show, the original broadway production of Mamma Mia. At the time Tina Maddigan was the lead and at the time I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. Truthfully, I still have a special spot for that show and also for the lead. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but I don't see how anyone can truly forget their first show. My actual first show was watching Nutcracker in downtown Jacksonville. My teacher told me to watch for the tree and as it rose from it's spot it was spectacular. This means you will never forget your first show and you will never forget your first broadway spectacular. 

For those of you who liked the movie Mamma Mia (entire city of London), I thought it sucked. 

When I was 19 and I moved to New York, I was officially obsessed with going to the theatre. Usually, I only went to see cele…

Dear White People. Dear Humans. Another skinny white girl talking about racism in America...

Dear fellow white people: please stop using the reference "All Lives Matter". Also stop using the reference "white privilege". One is a defensive action, the other is white guilt trying to force white guilt. Both assume that you understand what it means to be a black citizen in this country. Both are responses to white guilt. I do not know the struggle, and I am not guilty just because I was born white. I've done nothing wrong, I will not apologize for something I had no control over. White privilege was never something I experienced, especially while I grew up in trailer parks...with other poor white people.

How about instead of indignation, we just all support the cause of Black Lives Matter? This will be your way of showing that all lives matter without saying it. When there is a peaceful protest, maybe you should join. There should be blacks, whites, cops, hispanics, everyone joining together. We don't have to be on any one side other than justice. Any p…

Selfish Buncha Bitches

Today's is a little bit of an add on to what I wrote yesterday. 
Today I was reading yet another article about personality. This particular article was written about attachment styles and how to fix your particular style. I can remember reading about this while getting my psych degree and thought the same thing I thought then. Damn, I am fucked. I'm also the person that reads articles about how to spot a sociopath and wonder whether I am actually a sociopath. That's not really the point though. 
There is another article about personality. Another article about what might be wrong with us. Another article on how we can actually fix what is wrong with us. This is sort of what the quizzes themselves are about. The difference between them is that the quizzes only fill out the good parts of who you think you are. These articles seem to emphasize everything that is wrong with you. How do you fix you?
There isn't really anything wrong with this because really it just makes us…
