Welcome to my WTF Week

February 15, 2011 at 4:24 pm (odd news, Random Thoughts)

As husband says,  time to share so I don’t have an aneurysm.  So as I wait for places to open so I can talk to people,  I’m going to write this down.

My WTF week started yesterday morning as I’m watching the morning news and the ticker that runs at the bottom of the news  says “Colorado legislature looking to lessen the use of welfare cards at casinos.” What?  Ummm, how are they able to use it there anyway? I know, it’s like a debit card, so realistically, it can be used anywhere. But are people so stupid to NOT realize that it can be tracked? I guess maybe some people are, because later in the day the news was talking about how people are using their welfare dollars in vacation spots where they do not live.  I’m sorry, we both both work and we cannot afford to go to vacation spots. And unless someone else is paying for it for them, how are welfare recipients doing so???

Then, of course, I was doing taxes.  If that doesn’t make people go WTF, I don’t know what ever will.

Fast foward to later in the day, when my Facebook friend Jess, who is also  the Denver Zombie Examiner for Examiner.com (read her stuff, it’s good, funny and entertaining) posted this quote from something a die hard “Twilight” fan posted – Actually, I’m going to quote everything Jess posted –

 Today’s More-Frightening-Than-Zombies quote is brought to you by an actual teenage “Twilight” fan:
“edward only wanted to kill bella beacuse he was so attracted to her! obvioulsy you did not complete the books otherwise you would know why he wanted to kill bella!”

What in the deepest hells?  So we should want to kill those we’re attracted to?  Population wouldn’t last long that way, would it?  Junior sociopath in training, perhaps?  This line of thought just baffles me, beyond baffles me.  Though a good new term did come out of that thread – “IQ of DERP”.  I’ll be using that in the future – thanks!

Charlie Sheen and social use of Crack –  Somene I knew in college posted this article today.  Just read it. And don’t answer the door, it’s the aneurysm calling.

And to top the day, the day that just got started,  on the side bar on Facebook is an ad for a kitted apple cozy.  WTF????  Who needs a knitted apple cozy? Was this something thought up during the  never ending snow storms out east? If so, I’m sorry being housebound drove you insane.  Make a sweater for your kids, your neighbor you hate, for your dog, your cat, your pet rat.  Make a cozy for your teapot, but for your fruit???

I need to go sort things in the basement just to keep my sanity.

Welcome to WTF week – it’s only Tuesday morning – bet I’ll find plenty more to add to this as the day and the week continue.

I’ll be under the bed.
