I'M AFRAID OF AMERICANS.

I got the moves put on me earlier this evening by one of my neighbors! He's not my type though sadly. DAMNIT! He looks to be in his 50s, lives alone, thin, kind of looks a bit like Jeff Lynne did back in the Electric Light Orchestra days. I had to go pick up our new pool keys from him and he kept sizing me up and down and handed them to me in the most intimate way possible and says, "Stay out of trouble!" I was very cordial and polite, but definitely felt a bit violated afterwards. Ho hum, y can't the hot ones hit on me like this?

I've been in one of those really bitter/jaded/cynical moods lately. I've had it with the job, the commute, the bills, the responsibilities in general. Don't you just want to get up and run far away sometimes? Get away from it all? Just dump it all and leave? HUH? CAN YOU FEEL MY PAIN?! LOLOLOL! I know, I'm spoiled and I am fortunate to have what I have, but I still feel a certain void and utter disdain for life's daily struggles. I used to be so empathic and caring about others, but it's getting to the point where I look at most of humanity and think of them as nothing but expendable wastes of space! Isn't that horrible?! Yes! All those assholes and beatches driving like maniacs on the freeway! The ones you see at the store! Or at the concert venue! The dumbasses at work! Don't ya just wish an asteroid came and obliterated all of them!? Hell, even if it gets rid of me in the process, I just don't bloody give a damn! Humans are loathsome creatures! We behave worse than animals, and then wonder why Mother Nature is getting her revenge?!

Case in point: Last week's homeowner's association meeting. Most of the people in my complex happen to be white people, so if this sounds a bit racist, against whitey I apologize. Hey, I'm white too okay? White Hispanic. HA! But anyway, the trivial and banal complaints being made were so laughable, so utterly stupid, you just wanted to strangle dem people into oblivion. The one lone black chick there (who is very pretty) got up and left midway into the meeting. You could tell she'd had enough of these whiny annoying crackers and Alicia Keys just had to get up and leave. The rest of the heathens were bitching in the most annoying way possible. I had to contain my laffter several times watching the circus before me. I almost secretly wished at that moment I had magical powers where lasers could zap out of my eyes like Superman and I could burn some of those humans to a crunchy crisp! Americans are annoying despicable self-entitled creatures at times, and now I see why the world hates us. Now I get it.

T'is y George Carlin will be sorely missed. More and more as the days go by and I get older, I can identify with his way of seeing the world and the f**kers/annoyances in it. He just told it like it is:

I fully understand your disgust. I feel the same way most of the time. People are so incredibly petty and shallow. I really dislike the ones that think they're entitled and above everyone else (and the ones with the multiple hair dyes and weird ass doggy hair cuts).
Fortunately not everyone is that way so I really appreciate those moments spent with the sane, groovy people that enjoy just being. That's what makes the day go by for me.

What? You...a white Hispanic? In this god-fearing white bread nation full of good upstanding white christian people? say it isn't so.

Christopher said...

Please come and get me when you decide to run away...I'm feeling you on this one!

Oh, I feel your pain. Exactly why we do not attend those association meetings. Americans, in general, are very threatened right now. I try not to be one of them. 8-)

As far as running away? I think of it often. And sometimes think about running and not telling anyone about it. Then, I remember the ending of the movie Into The wild. He discovers that a large part of happiness is the ability to share it with others.

Funny thing about George--he ranted, but he was the nicest person (to everybody!) A friend of mine was a waitress & had the luck to wait on him several times-- she said he just cracked her up the entire time. He gave her a new name, too. 'Seed Head' .

Dennis is fed up with stupid humans too--that's why Dennis just hangs with his own slave-humans who are nice.

But even stupid disgusting humans have cats and dogs and ferrets dependent on them.

White Hispanic? Oy. A racist aunt of mine in LA used to refer to her neighbors as "white Mexicans from Argentina, the kind that won't steal from you". Being half Jewish, I've always contended that I'm not completely white. I was in the Castro last night, and it was weird to be around so many English-speaking white folks, especially gay ones. I feel much more comfortable back in the multi-kulti Mission.

People are assholes. In general of course. I'm with you on getting up and moving though. I think I'm moving to france next year.

I'm in the early stages of giving everything away so I can run away from everything. I understand completely.

aw.. I would love to know what whitey was bitchin 'bout.

I have felt the urge to get away from it all before and my answer to that was to leave. Luckily it was in my performing days when I could accept an out of town engagement for a few months and leave the crap behind. It worked wonders.

The point is to remember that you are in control of how you live your life. The decisions are yours to make. If you hate the job - quit. There will be consequences of course but ultimately the choice is yours.

the rest of the heathens, (now thats a funny choice of words)
