I Just Don't Get It

There are so many things that happen around me every single day that I just can't seem to understand.  Can anyone help explain?

Sponsored blog posts when everyone is doing it.  How do those companies make any money?  I'm clearly going to skip over the posts if I've already got suckered into one.  I get making a little cash from your blog, but when the company has 50 bloggers post about their product, it's a little overkill.  (This one was inspired by you, Carly.)

Carly Rae Jepsen throwing out the first pitch - wouldn't you practice?  Now you have gone viral and not for a new single.

I still think you are adorable, but I don't think you should be able to go to baseball games anymore.

I can't stand the Kardashians, yet I find myself watching them on TV... and I'm not changing the channel. Why does this happen?

Spray tans - sorry, I just don't get it.  I look weird when I'm any color other than pale and it seems like an expensive routine.  I also don't understand fake nails, perms and eyebrow waxing.  I would love to look like a Hollywood star, but I've come to terms that it's never going to happen, so I refuse to spend too much money & time looking great.  It's exhausting to try and maintain and keep up (plus, the picture below would pretty much sum up my experience.)

The Hobbit being split up into 3 movies - call me a nerd, but I love that book.  As much as I love it, I refuse to spend 9 hours of my life to watch the 3 movies.

On the same note, the 3rd Hunger Games book is being made into a 2 part movie - doesn't anyone remember the first half of that book????  It was kind of boring.  Clearly, I'll still go see it, but it's rude that they are splitting it up.

Crocs - I've tried them on, not comfortable.  I don't get it.  You know that you can get flip flops in every color too, right?

GCB was cancelled and I don't know why.  I watched it every week and I loved it.

Even more so than that, WHY DID THEY CANCEL HAPPY ENDINGS - dumb move, ABC.

Horror Movies, I refuse to pay money to watch something that is going to ruin my night of peaceful slumber.

How people can enjoy Nicolas Cage... he seriously gives me the heebie jeebies.  His voice is bad, his hair is weird, his eyes are creepy.

I'm sure I'm not alone on some of those and probably all alone on others.  What is out there that you don't understand?


  1. I LOVED GCB!!! It was so funny!! I was so mad when I heard they cancelled it!

  2. Hahaha to Carly Rae! I honestly don't understand how people can throw SO BADLY. Mariah Carey is the all-time worst, if you haven't seen hers, google it!

  3. wait... i am dying over the carly pitch. like legit crying laughing. omg. and agree with all of this. thank you.

  4. Things I will not blog about: tampons. What's in my nightstand as a weird way to introduce birth control into a conversation on a blog. Um, if you get your period, use tampons if you want. If you have sex and don't want to get pregnant, use birth control. Are we clear? I don't need schooling on these things from fellow bloggers and I don't need to school others either. You CAN say no to sponsorship posts.

    I was on an insane rant over the cancellation of Happy Endings. How? Why?

    The third HG book seemed like an afterthought, like the publishing house wanted a trilogy. How the F are they making it into a two part movie? Greedy effers want to make more in ticket sales.

    I watch the Kardashians because I love the admittedly douchey Lord Disick.

  5. Wait, so you are NOT going to buy certain tampons because people told you about their period stories and took very artistic pictures of the tampons?!?!

    I forgot about the birth control posts that SMD mentions...also awful. I am 31...I think I have birth control and my period on lock down.

    Allegedly, Carly Rae (also, WHY do I have to share a name with her??) did some practice pitches and did well. She should be embarrassed though.

    Crocs should go away forever.

  6. omg Thank you!
    Nicolas Cage drives me crazy...I avoid his movies! (except National Treasure, I like those)

    Kardashians are pretty hard to avoid, one of them will be on another channel if you switched anyway, right?

  7. Love this! I actually wrote a similar post last week- http://catscuddlingandcarrotcake.blogspot.com/2013/07/no-seriously-thats-stupid.html

    There are so many things that I just don't get. Things that make me think "how can you wake up in the morning and just think that's a good idea?" The crocs are a perfect example. I've tried them, too. Nope, not comfy. And I have the same problem with the Kardashians. It's like you can't look away.

  8. Yeah product people! Shit, might as well send every blogger something!! And GCB was amazing!! I seriously loved it. I want to read the book!

  9. I agree with most of these, although I never heard of GCB. I think the Kardashians just need to go away!

  10. I'm still SO mad about Happy Endings?? WHYYY!!!

    Also...I'm right there with you on looking weird if I'm any color other than pale. We have a pool membership for this summer...and even after going a few times in 90 degree weather, still pale.

    As for Crocs...a close friend just bought Camo ones. I'll let that sink in for a minute. CAMO! Ugliest things ever. And I tell him every day.

  11. How in the world did she manage to throw the baseball to the ground like that? I'd have to TRY to be that terrible.

    And I'm far too lazy to get spray tans. Plus my friends who get them have orange hands. No thanks.

  12. Hahaha, yep, totally don't get so very many of these as well! Laughed so hard at Carly Rae Jepsen, but in her defense, she threw a strike the last time she threw the first pitch at a baseball game!

  13. oh man i love gcb so much!! and f nick cage, he can't act!

  14. Gaaaah Carly Rae, what a mess that was! And I'm with you on the horror movies - no freaking thanks. I enjoy my sleepies too much! :)
    However, I do get my eyebrows waxed, simply because it's a MUST and if I didn't, I'd get reported for wildlife smuggling. (Aka toting squirrels around on my face. Cute.)

  15. haha that spray tan pic is hilarious!! I totally agree about horror movies. why do people WANT to get scared?

  16. I've sadly gotten more practical with my shoes lately, but I can't see myself EVER wearing crocs. EVER.

    I devoured the Hunger Games books but the third one was the weakest link so to make it two movies is just greedy.

  17. GCB was the BEST. They always cancel the great shows. And Crocs - ugh. There's a store in Vienna I saw where they had Croc HEELS. Just no.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
