So, I don’t know how many other people do this, but puns have become a serious “problem” around here. No matter what am I doing, where I am doing it, I hear someone making a pun so bad I have no recourse but to face-palm (see my pic >>>>>).
Seriously, the other day I was doing the dishes, and I hold up all our forks. I say, “Wow, we have a shit load of forks, where did these all come from?” To which I get the reply, “I have no FORKING clue!” This is just one example amongst a million. And I think it is driving me slowly insane. I don’t know how often I hear them, but it has to be around 5-6 a day. It’s just something that grinds my shit. Here’s one more for no good reason (I can only remember ones dealing with lots of objects, I guess).
I’m at a restaurant, and the waitress has a whole lot of pens. She says, “they are everywhere!” To which a friend says, “I guess it’s a pendemic.”
On subject of things that are annoying me: Vampires. Seriously, this Twilight book, that episode of South Park, and a some recent anime (Vampire Knight, Index), aren’t the only entries into this chapter of dumbassery. Why have vampires become so popular recently? I mean, I guess they always have been to an extent, but not on this level.
Maybe it’s because our society has become obsessed with the idea of self, and vampires exemplify this to a large extent; being that they are immortal, and feed on other people. Or, maybe it’s because they are always supposed to be FABULOUS, bitches and guys-who-suck love it…… I’m going with the latter. Either way, like the puns, I think this is something that needs to end. Why can’t people be obsessed with some other sort of mythical creature… like werewolves… wait fuck, not them either! This is probably just me hating popular things again, I dunno.
Still watching Tweeny Witches (Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu). It’s turned into a pretty good show thus far, nothing fantastic, but definitely enjoyable. The art style is still great, imo, and I like the main character more and more, despite her being high on morals to the point of annoyance. I’ll probably review it fully when it’s over, since I know few people have seen it (at least that I know of).
