this is  just a list of things that I find to be absurd


1. (for skyfire's sake) Cows
2.  the band of creepy old laidies who work at Burger King.
3.  the lady that I see standing on the corner everyday in the sombrero
4. N SYNC
5.  penguins ( I love them, but they can't fly)
6. Ostriches (why would they stick their heads in the ground?)
7. MTV (corrupting the pre-teenage world as we know it)
8.  Mr. Ammer's second period sophmore high honors english class
9.  The Green Knight from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
10.  Mr. Ammer and how he asked me for a metaphor on life and I  missed the first part of it and simply said that Life was dancing in the rain and he just looked at me like I was insane and corrected me by saying that Life was A DANCE in the rain...
11.  Katie (my math partner), her fingers, her ring.
12. the fact that my class ring cannot simply be delievered the same day as all the other class rings, but rather that I have to wait 3-4 wks for mine.
13. The Backstreet Boys
14.  Trees
15.  fingernail polish
16. White-out (why must people question that I am the white-out god?)
17. Joey
18. Business Law
19.  Study Hall
20. Mc Donalds (during the daytime, there's a Mc Donalds where all these absurd old laidies work and they all call ya "honey" and everything... ahhh)
21. computers.
help me add to my list!

Large purses with everything but the kitchen sink in it. I mean who cares if you have 7 different kinds of Life Saver in there? It bumps into things when you walk down an aisle in the grocery store and takes up its own seat in the movie theater!

Absurd.

i am here to defend cell phones and hair dye.

as a hair dyed cell phone user, i'm all for them.     wisdom comes with age.  haha.

and we had some stupid lady do that at work.  because she tripped on the sidewalk outside and didn't break her fall so she mashed up her face a bit.  and who's fault is that?  not ours.  i mean, sidewalks are everywhere.  learn how to walk.

i've never sued a soul, though i have plenty of reason to.  it's pointless.  i'm not an american.

:: shrugs ::

more abusurd things?

- the price of barbies and barbie accessories.
- restaurant cooks who can never remember to make your order properly.
- waiters who don't know the meaning of the words 'extra tomatoes'.  i never get extra tomatoes.  it sucks!!
- teenyboppers.
- the price of gas.
- pop music [though we've discussed this in a previous thread heh].
- anything to do with pop culture nowadays.

and so it goes.

nice thread allysa.

i WILL be back.  

long live the absurd thread!!

/jen/

i'm so bitterly disappointed.  betty, i think it's time you leave now.

1. Slobs (I'm fully aware that I was a slob this week)
2. That almost-drool worthy guy at the bar last night. Jerk  
3. Songs that lose their flavour after I listen to them over and over and over
4. Daylight Savings Time
5. Titus... he's the most absurd person I've ever known (disclaimer: I'm kidding)
6. Forgetting what I was going to write :/
7. Thong underwear.
8. TOILETS
9. Eyebrows. I hate them. Life would be so much easier if I didnt' have to pull little hairs out at least twice a week. Grrr

1. Dancing bush (at www.bored.com, check it out if you haven't seen it)
2. writing "creative responses" to some english (bedford, i think) handbook... hello, where the hell do you get creativity when studying GRAMMAR... which leads to my next topic:
3. grammar, parts of sentences, nouns... blah blah blah... as long as one speaks properly, one should not have to take grammar in school.
4. Mr Ammer (I may have already mentioned him... Allie {a friend} and I think he might have PMS, but he's also crazy, so it makes it funny)
5. yellow
6. Acire
7. Javier
(J/k guys, you know i love you to pieces)
