Most talked about celebrity this year

.....and the winner is



I don't give a bleep about Dirty Fingernails

That is one of my biggest pet peeves. Folks who don't wash their hands properly. I remember once I was visiting my girlfriends house, and she was preparing a meal for us. Okay, why did I observe her not only NOT wash her hands before she handled the meat, (chicken), but she also had about a 10 day supply of crude under her nails.

I think the Korean lady up the street would have fun with her at the nail shop. Lawd. Then she slaps the chicken on the *unwiped* counter and starts seasoning it. A long story short, I conveniently had a "tummy ache" and did not eat at her home that day.

I am single so I tend to date occasionally and that is one thing I do check out on a man. (his fingernails). I mean if you work outside and you didn't have time to shower (before the date), I understand. However, how can you show up on a date with mystery dirt under you nails and your hands looking like you shovel dirt for a living?

I am just not getting it.

I am so Happy this Year is Ended

Okay, I really was just going to let this blog go completely. It has been so difficult to manage this blog and manage the craziness in my life. The fact that I now have to type at the library sucks too. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that fat dude with the beard treated everyone right.

Many, I just have to say something about folks who "regift." What is that about? That is why I prefer gift cards. It allows me to go out and by what I really want and not have to talk about the "cheap" folks that give me things they didn't want. (yeah read this like THAT never happened to any of you

Don't Regift the Gift Wrappings-LOL

Everyone can tell when something has hung around in a gift box for a year. Cardboard gets soft and seems to absorb the odors of wherever it was stored and old gift wrap can be spotted just by the feel of it. When regifting, do not use recycled gift bags, paper or tissue. Throw it all out and buy new and take a little extra time to make the wrapping look fresh and attractive.

I got what I wanted this Christmas and that was food, shelter and good health. These are things that many folks take for granted in this world. The madness of running all over creation to buy things (that some of us can't afford) to make this person happy is kinda crazy to me.

I like to give gifts (little acts of kindness) throughout the year. Opening up credit cards or extending credit (which I don't have) for one day doesn't appeal to me.

So hopefully your New Year will be really awesome!

Yeah, I'm coming back for the NEW YEAR (cause this really was suppose to be my GOODBYE POST)...but then I started going on and on about Christmas crap.

Anyhow, worst gift to give ANYONE below...(I hope you didn't give folks this)

Santa Claus Sucks- (kids close your eyes!)

drunken santa Pictures, Images and Photos

What is with these Santas lately? Why are they looking so malnourished. Dang! I remember when my mom use to let me sit on Santas lap when I was a little kid. I think I peed on one of them (yup knowing me I did).

I use to think, what is this fat, white dude in the beard gonna do for me. We live in the projects, we don't have a roof and I know he gonna fall off the fire escape and die. However, ever year Santa must have made it up that fire escape cause we got our gifts and the reindeers got their cookies.

sadam santa Pictures, Images and Photos

I have to admit I was thirsty and use to sneak back and drink the milk.

I went to the Mall yesterday and I swear Santa Claus must be anorexic. His belt was falling off, his beard was real but it looked like he hadn't taken a bath in awhile and he HO HO HO was not jolly at all.

I know I wouldn't let my kid sit on his lap, he looked like he was a perv. Yup, Santa Claus all the real Santas are gone. Santa just sucks man..

I don't give a bleep about Giftwrap

wrapping paper mess Pictures, Images and Photos

What is this fascination with giftwrap that some folks have. I have to say if I could dump all my gifts in ths big bag for the holidays and then tell folks come on by and get it I would. I hate wrapping gifts. It is the most mundane, senseless task. We spend hours wrapping it (to get it just right) and most folks take less then 10 seconds to demolish your wrapping paper to get to the goodies.

Gimme a "brown Paper bag," a pair of scissors, and some scotchtape. VOILA!! gift wrapped.

Babies have the right idea, they will tear off the wrapper, dump out the gift and play with the box.

Something to Make You Smile

I bet this baby just got look at our economy!

I Don't Give a Bleep About Rude Bosses

Corporate America. Pictures, Images and Photos

I know at least once in our working career (unless we have always been self employed) we have encountered someone who we worked for who was rude. Case in point, I went to work yesterday, I work in the retail industry which is challenging within itself, and my boss decides to have a hissy fit because our sales our down.

DUH, newsflash, everyone in retail is experiencing this. So she goes on for about 10 minutes with this "rant" about we need to be out there doing everything we can to make sure that we make our sales goals this week. Well, I got a lot going on right now and "sales goals" are really not my concern.

She then singles out (of course the quietest person) one of people in my division and reams then for about 10 minutes for something that could of been stated privately. I spoke up and told her that her actions on the work floor were inappropriate. Why did she tell me, "you know you need to stay out of this cause you "NEED" this job.

Okay, yes she is STILL alive, but lets just say that she won't be making those types of statements again. Just rude. I hate corporate America. I swear I do.

I Don't Give A Bleep About- false advertisizing

The above ads are parodies, however they are based off of the true theories. Many advertisers put out all this fluff when they have these commercials or billboard ads displayed. How many times have you stayed up late at night an seen all those "infomercials" where they claim to do all those "amazing," things. Come on, if the product was so wonderful, the manufactures would not be hawking it at $19.99.

What about those food ads? I have see a Big Mac, Jack in the Box Burger and many other food items that DO NOT look like that when they serve it to me.

What big mac advertises

Now what they "really" serve

I Don't Give A Bleep About- Men with Purses

Can someone explain to me what a man bag is? I had a friend the other day whose purse was WAY bigger than mine. Dang, he had all of Washington D.C . in there. Let me tell you there is no way a man can walk macho, with this bag slung low over their shoulder. Their is even a site called, "mister bag," where the man can choose, which wonderful purse he can accessorize with.

Okay, like I would ask the queen, "what do you have in there?" Men (I am saying REAL MEN) carry a wallet. I know I am pretty open minded, hail, I am plenty open minded, but come on people!!

Unless it is depends, what can you possibly have in there? Well, my friend from D.C. had his toiletries, Kleenex, comb (for his comb over), manicure set, wallet, book, (yes he had a ),eyeglasses, an a lighter (he doesn't even smoke).

Below are some "man bags" I found at the site above. Would you men carry this? Ladies, would you walk next to your man with these bags?

Enough is Enough

I Don't Give a Bleep About- wedding rings

Don't get me wrong, I have been married and I love to wear a wedding ring as a sign of commitment to my partner and marriage....BUT....why does it TAKE so long to get rid of that DARN IMPRINT in your left finger when you get a divorce??

Dang, It has been 5 years now since I have been "officially" divorced and recently JUST stop seeing the imprint on my finger. It is like some bad HAIR know you buy it for temporary use but it ends up staining your scalp for months. wait...bad!

Now, then there is the cost. If it is a symbol of "love" why do some women have their "intended" spouse take out a loan to pay for the ring. If it is something you can't budget, then maybe you need a "smaller' commemoration of your love.

My ring (remember the one I said left that imprint for 5 years) cost little over $100.00. I got it on sale at J.C. Penny. You probably needed a microscope to see the diamond. Hey, but I was married for 23 years, so I don't think the cost of the "ring" was ever the issue.

Why don't men like to wear rings? My ex husband did (at least when I saw it on his hand) know how that story can goes. I hear everything from it itches, I don't want to lose it...and yada yada.

Then why does society "expect" a woman to wear a ring if she is married. Isn't that double standards?

Oh Check out these really Weird wedding odd!

I Don't Give a Bleep About Poor Sarah Palin

sarah palin Pictures, Images and Photos

Okay lets recap, here is what we know so far, Sarah Louise Heath Palin was born February 11, 1964. She is the governer of Alaska. Palin was a member of the Wasilla, Alaska City Council from 1992 to 2002. She has chaired the Alaska Oil an Gas Conservation Commission from 2003 to 2004.

However with all her successes in Alaska, the only thing the poor woman will be remembered for historically is that she ran as Vice-President (unsuccessfully) next to John McCain. ....oh wait, and here a couple MORE things that she might be remembered for

  • She hunts Moose, Deer and stuff
  • Her teen daughter got knocked up
  • She got kids named- Piper, Bristol, Trig, Willow and Trak
  • She can see Russia from her backyard
  • Voted "Miss Wasilla" in local beauty contest; eloped at 24
  • has a downs syndrome child
  • Did not know Africa was a Continent
  • Gave Tina Fey a high income
  • Gave SNL the highest ratings they ever had
  • Ran unsuccessfully as Vice President electee
  • She never asked for anything more than a "diet Pepsi" and somehow got clothes
  • didn't know the countries in North American Free Trade ( I wonder if she knew were trading)
  • Was involved in "troopergate"
So what made this woman such a phenomenon. I think it was because she stated she represented the "Average American Woman" and many of us KNOW AFRICA is a how AVERAGE WAS SHE?

Many of us woman are NOT sanctimonious about our teenage girls....STUFF HAPPENS...but to have your child marry someone that young because of what "THE PUBLIC" might think is crazy. I was an unwed mom, not teenage, but pretty young. I "almost" married my child's father, but I realized one key thing, I didn't love him. My mother not once, got involved in my decision making.

Sarah Palin caused a LOT of the media fluff around her, then blamed the same media for reporting HER OWN WORDS. Will she run in 2012...HEAVEN HELP US IF SHE DOES!

Obama for President Pictures, Images and Photos

I want to take this time to congratulate our new President elect-Barack Obama.

Obama won by appealing to a deep yearning for national reconciliation and unity that spans partisan divides. From the moment he captured national attention with a stirring speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention to the last day of this campaign, he reminded us that amid our often-contentious diversity, we are one nation joined in a common mission.

I Don't Give a Bleep About-The Sunday Newspaper

funny-newspaper-ads-mistakes-and-bloopers.jpg Pictures, Images and Photos

Why does the Sunday Newspaper have to have 20 million supplements in it? I mean what happened to the news, classifieds, cartoons, and stuff we read? I opened my paper last Sunday and it took a wheel barrow to carry it, because it was filled with every advertisement known to man.

I mean understand the supermarket coupons (shoot, I use them myself) but what is with all these "other" stores that are not even in my local area? When I "thinned" out the paper with all these unnecessary things, that paper was so thin you could see through it.

I think we should have a paper that just sells "ads." These are for folks who enjoy reading all that junk.

I Don't Give A Bleep About-Racist Attitudes

Obama Pictures, Images and Photos

Here it was Tuesday, November 4th and the greatest event in the nation took place. We as a nation put the word "UNITED" back into the word, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and some racist A-hole had to blow my natural high.

I went to work the next day, and someone was asking me, "Why was Jesse Jackson crying?" Okay, I should of knew from the question she was not going to understand the answer. I simply told her that ,"he was crying because never would he have thought in his lifetime would he see a person of color become the President of the United States." Then she said, well Obama wasn't black, that is why he won. ( I will spare you the derogatory words I used to answer this ignoramous).

So I asked her HOW BLACK DOES HE HAVE TO BE TO BE BLACK? Was it a shade? Was it he needed MORE AFRICAN MIXTURE from his father and that side of his family? Did he have to live in Kenya for many years to be considered a black man?

Everytime this man travels (from a visual viewpoint) he is seen as a "black man." I looked at Obama and I didn't mistake him for white. She said,"he's bi-racial" that does not count.
I am quite sure, "BARRY" Obama had to deal with this issue ALL his life. (hence him calling himself BARRY).

I get so tired of people who (since Obama's election ) have been making excuses as to why he won. GET OVER IT!! He won and the country has now started that path on healing. We didn't get our 400 acres and a mule, but we did get a white house.

Wordless Wednesday-Showing Love

The world needs more...

I Don't Give A Bleep About- Breast Milk Icecream

Ben an Jerry turned this flavor down. I wonder It appears PETA (my favorite self-righteous group) has decided that the natural way to go in eating ice cream is by using "breast milk." According to a recent Time Magazine article, Peta is asking Ben and Jerry, the ice cream maker to begin using breast milk in its products instead of cow's milk, saying it would reduce the suffering of cows and calves and give ice cream lovers a healthier product.

Okay, what suffering of cows and calves? Does the group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) know how ice cream is made? Last time I heard, one did not KILL a cow or baby calf t make ice cream. I swear, everyone has a darn cause. They actually wrote a letter to Ben and Jerry and told them that milking cows is an act of cruelty.

Okay, so why you don't talk to the folks in the hills of Switzerland that milk goats? So is goat milking more acceptable then cow milking? I think Peta is full of "sour milk"

I didn't breast feed my kid for one simple reason...DARNIT ..IT HURT!! So who would subject themselves to the "breast pump" to add this "special flavor"to ice cream.

I Don't Give a Bleep About-HMO's

A health maintenance organization (HMO) is a type of managed care organization (MCO) that provides a form of health care coverage in the United States that is fulfilled through hospitals, doctors, and other providers with which the HMO has a contract. The main purpoe of this organization (and I use that word loosely).

OKay so why am I going into this brief description, because anyone that has to deal with and HMO knows it has some crazy guidelines. I have a friend and I use to have this as well, whose company issues FSA's (Flexible Spending Account).

This will generally allow an employee to set aside a portion of his or her earnings to pay for their medical expenses but often for dependent care or other expenses. Money deducted from your paycheck into and FSA is not subject to payroll taxes, resulting in a substantial payroll tax savings.

Okay, this was suppose to (years ago) be this simple way to expedite and assist people get medical care. I don't know about you guys, but I watch the discussions (debates) about the Health Care issues (and the proposed solutions) because not everything is as it seems.

Okay back to my girlfriend. Well, she has a PCP (primary care physician), who gave her a referral to a specialist. Well, it appears that she was NOT told the HMO guidelines DID NOT cover that type of care. So here it is months and months later (and I do mean months) that she gets this whopping ass bill from the health care provider.

Now when she tries to get in contact with her PCP, well it appears he is no longer her PCP. She has been dished off to someone else in the HMO Coverage area. She was never notified. I know cause this girl is so organized, she alphabitizes the rice grains in the daggone box.

Then she learns that they (her company) changed from Aetna to Kaiser. So she starts gathering facts(like she is the lawyer in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD) to take to the benefits office in her job, when she gets a call from Kaiser who tells her that they sent the "wrong" paperwork to the billing office. So that should of settled it right? Nope! Now she has to fill out "more paperwork" to get that corrected. In the "meantime" can she just PAY THE BILL and the money will be REFUNDED after they get her paperwork.

....and you wonder why I don't give a bleep about HMO's.

I Don't Give a Bleep About-The DMV

Yes I am about to rant on my least favorite State Workers-The Department of Motor Vehicles. It doesn't matter what state you are in these folks (for some reason) are rude. I know it can be a challenging job but that does not excuse someone from common courtesy.

I filled out my daughters identification card form (she has a disability), paid for it. She took the pictures the whole nine yards and here it is 3 months (not two, but three months later), I am still arguing with them about why I didn't receive it.

It seem sometimes nice folks don't get a break, everyone mistakes kindness for stupidity. Okay, well finally I found one of the supervisors who was willing to take that extra round to make sure everything was okay. She investigated and it appears the screw up was on my post office side. They received the application but the carrier placed the identification in the wrong mail slot (hence I didn't get it). Luckily, the person turned (surrendered) it back in to the DMV department.

Okay, then would it NOT have been in your computer system. So, after finding this out, I went "Back" to the original person (who I had been dealing with for months) and inquired if they had different systems why she didn't see it. You know what the "hefer" told me? I thought you already knew it was returned. what? See some folks will make you lose your religion.

Whew..okay I feel much better now.

I Don't Give A Bleep About-Women who don't shave their arms

My girlfriends say I am crazy. (well I am but that is another story for another day). Women, I know it might be "fashionable" in some countries but PULEEEEEEEEEEEZE shave your arm pits. Thank God for weather change. I had to endure some sight this summer that made my eyelashes curl.

Did I mention the "caked on deodrant?" Hey, does anyone remember "creme sachet?" My granny swore by that stuff. She used to use the creme deodrants as well. However, when you sweat that stuff got drippy.

I am writing this because I saw a lady today whose underarm look like she had "Buckwheat in a headlock."

It was rough.

I Don't Give A Bleep About-Skid Marks

Yes you are reading right, my latest rant is about men who do not wash their "neither regions" properly. Now, you might say, this is quite a disgusting thing to address, but no more "strange" then people who act forget to use the "facilities," but do not wash their hands. Can say DOUBLE EWWWW!!

I have a boy (well a man now) who I taught that importance of "hygiene." So why OH LAWD WHY? do I have to do the laundry and THERE IT IS THE DREADED (everyone gasp now.....SKID MARK!!) The true sign of you did not use the WET ONES on the sink (right next to the toilet).

To some of you this may be the "forbidden Fruit" topic, but for me and my box of Tide, it is a sad thing.

Thursday, September 25, 2008

I Don't Give A Bleep About-Granny Panties

Yeah, I am back at it again. Why in the world did my sister send me underwear (I mean out of the blue) and they were...(shuddering over here..) GRANNY PANTIES!!..yes, these suckers were under my chin they were so huge.

Now I am not into the little thongs (I don't think my anal cavity needs flossing) or the underwear that you might as well be nude, but yeah I am over 40, but GRANNY PANTIES??

Those suckers can block out the sun.

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

I Don't Give a Bleep About- Chewing Gum

Okay, you might say what is she talking or in my case writing about now. I am just so tired of all these variety of gum choices I have to deal with. I remember back in the day when I had a choice of either Wrigleys Spearmint or Wrigleys Peppermint. I had a choice of either Bazooka Gum or Tops Bubble Gum (remember the one with the sports cards in the pack).

Now I go through the check out counter and I am spend 5 minutes just trying to decide if I want the one with the aspartame or the one with the sorbitol (I mean which one will kill me sooner). Then I have the chocolate gum, the cinnamon gum, the peppermint with the chocolate flakes, the banana gum, the orange gum, the gum that you can substitute for breakfast, the gum that will clean my teeth (so I don't have to brush them), the list goes on and on.

Meanwhile the poor cashier is standing there probably saying, "what the heck is this lady doing?" "good grief Charlie Brown."

My favorite gum of ALL time I can't even find anymore. This is the little "chicklets." God, remember Chicklets? They were so small and fun. You could put a whole lot in your mouth an make this big wad of gum.

Yeah, sometimes more is not always best.

How to ruin a picture

I found this during my internet romp and would say this is surely a way to ruin a fun vacation picture.

Ruined Picture

Now I would blame my friend (and I choose that word loosely) for not telling me to wait before I pose or something.

I Don't Give a Bleep About- Politics

I am so sick of politics. I was so happy to see "dancing with the stars" and "heroes" premeire tonight. I can honestly say, "I don't give a bleep about Palin," " I don't give a bleep about O'bama'", " I don't give a bleep about Biden," "I don't give a bleep about McCain," and I "really don't give a bleep about people who are using advertising to promote controversial commercials."

So you see why I was so greatful for the new "fall" season shows to kick in. Thank God, they paid those screenwriters.

I Don't Give a Bleep About the Stimulus Check

Okay by now most of you have received your stimulus checks in the mail. You know the money the government made a big deal about giving folks to supplement their income. Now, initially the money was to be used to help the economy. This means that it was suppose to be spent in the retail environment. YEAH RIGHT (lol)!

How many folks really used it for that? I so people using it for groceries, but mostly I saw folks putting it in their savings account or paying off a loan. How irresponsible. If the government said to buy the $500.00 dollar pair of Nikes, then by gummit, that is what you should of done.

I didn't get one, because I am a sad excuse for what poor folks look like. I did not make enough. But my RICH neighbor (the millionaire) gets one because he filed. What?

yeah...I can honestly say I don't give a bleep about the Stimulus Check.

I Don't Give a Bleep About Weaves

I feel this way if you bought it, it is yours. I guess I haven't written for awhile, so I should have this elaborate post about why I haven't been online. However, it basically is no one's business but mine. I really don't give a bleep about telling you guys, as I know you really don't give a bleep about the reason why.

Now, back to my weaves conversation. There are so many entertainers, and other folks in various businesses across the world who feel the need every once in a while to wear a hair piece. This means men and women. So why do folks get in a bunch when they are making love and the hairpiece comes off? I mean I'm just saying..

Is that a dating question that should be asked along with do you wear dentures? I feel if every man out there was to worrry about what was real or fake on a woman no one would date. Lets face it even if you paint your nails, isn't that fake? Doesn't it hide the cracks, wear and tear and sometimes fungus condition of the nails (both on hands an feet).

Technical isn't it.

Shout Out to Steven Humor

You guys got to check out his site. Steven Humor has it going on in the jokes and humor department. It is hilarious. I had to "pinch" his photo of some hotdog holders. OMG, talk about "burnt weenies." So if you want a good laugh a day, run over to this site (okay, walk we don't want any accidents) and check out Idontgiveableep's kind of humor,

Hot Dog Holders For The Barbeque

I love my Weenie Burnt!.yum!

I Don't Give A Bleep About-Combination Fried Rice

fried rice

Yes, I said it out loud! I don't care about combination fried rice. I have a friend who works in the Chinese Food industry and actually he advised me to not eat combination "anything" from a Chinese restaurant. Do you know that much of the combination dishes are "recycled" from the day before? Yupper, that is correct. Some restaurants go as far as "saving" some of those Meat dishes (chicken and shrimp too) that you don't finish and simply cutting them up real small and serving them back to you in combination fried rice or chow mien type dishes.

Well, to their credit the rice and noodles that the recycled meat and seafood is served is fresh. So the next time you are ordering those dishes remember you might be eating someone's leftovers.

I Don't Give a Bleep-About Viagra Commercials


What is up with all these strange commercials? It was taboo years ago to even remotely discuss sex much less men who can't "get it up." I was embarrased when tampon and kotex commercials came on television. Now, we have "impotency" commercials. I guess it is good for those men who do suffer from this medical complication.

However, when you are sitting at the dinner table with your children (and hey the television maybe playing in the background) and the "Cialis" commercial comes on,what do you do when little Johnny says, "Mom what is penile erectile dysfunction?" Do you simply say, "Johnny pass the cream corn," you are too you to understand? Or do you go into this full blown explanation that some men grow older and then their penis stops getting hard?

Well whatever the reply I am just sick of the commercials. I am sick of tampon and kotex commercials too though. I am sure when you are PMSing you don't want to be cramping and seeing someone playing tennis on television stating how much "fun" they are having because their Midol kicked in.

I Don't Give a Bleep About-Moving

Shellys moving van

I don't give a bleep has been moving (or trying to) for the last month or so. This is the reason for my delay in writing. I have tried to maintain this and my other blogs during this month, but it has been rather difficult.

Why is moving such a royal pain? First off I had to go "dumpster diving for some boxes." Why? because I am cheap as hell. I also had no shame in begging at some local stores as well. I found that people spend money to buy all these fancy U-haul boxes and then they abandon them at dumpsters. I am more than happy to retrieve them and use them.

Below is what one moving company suggest I do prior to two weeks before moving.

Two Weeks Before Moving

Red Bullet

Inform gas, electric, water, cable, local telephone and trash removal services of your move. Sign up for services at your new address.

Red Bullet

Inform long distance phone company of your move.

Red Bullet

Recruit moving-day help.

Red Bullet

Confirm travel reservation.

Red Bullet

Arrange to close or transfer your bank account, if appropriate.

The only problem is I have LESS then two weeks and I haven't got any of this crap done. Wait! I did tell my cable company I am moving. Hey that is a start huh?

Sigh...back to the old drawing board. So if you see me MIA hey, send me a sandwich or something would yah!

I Don't Give a Bleep About-Designer Clothes

I really can't see myself spending $200.00 for a pair of jeans that say, "apple bottom."(and have a picture of an apple on the right cheek). First off my bottom does not resemble an apple, a large grapefruit, but no apple. Why are we falling prey to this blatant commercialism. I can see when kids are in school and their is this peer pressure to fit in, however not as adults.

apple bottom jeans

I had on some slacks the other day (they were really nice-good fit) and one of my co workers complimented me. She asked where I bought them from, I told her K[mart. You would of thought I said from the garbage dump. Her nose crinkled up, and she said, "I would never shop there." I mean I could of lied and said Macy's, would that have made her feel better.

What messages are some parents giving their kids when they run out and by 200.00 Michael Jordans? Dang, isn't that man retired? So why am I putting a retired basketball players shoes on a 6 year old who doesn't have a job.

John\'s Jeans

I am sorry to rant like this, but I grew up in the Jordache and Sergio Valenti jeans era and as long as my mama gave me ONE pair of something trendy I was cool. When my mother lost her job and could not afford even to put food on the table, I realized that their were indeed more important things in life.
