I would like to take an opportunity to clear some brain space for myself by presenting you with a few public service announcements in the form of random observations. Although these may seem completely unrelated, we can categorize these things under "Items Distracting Me From Studying Because They Honk Me Off."
1) Attention Rosie O'Donnell (a.k.a. Already Brainless, Wish You Were Mic-Less)
As if everyone in the universe, including the great unwashed upon whom you slather so much disdain, didn't already know, this weekend presented us with yet ANOTHER opportunity to point out that fire does, in fact, melt steel. I would also like to take this opportunity to share that steel structures, like bridges and buildings, are not found intact in nature. They are actually created...in a very fiery process. NOTHING is fire-proof...just fire resistant to varying degrees. A fact you will surely acknowledge, if not in this life than most certainly in the next.
So, Rosie, if you can refrain from blathering on about all the 9/11 conspiracies and your obvious lack of common sense (not to mention anti-depressant regulation), I'd appreciate it. I have work to do.
2) Attention Neighborhood Males...It's Summer
For whatever reason, across the street from my home, and at various strategic locations throughout my neighborhood, there are men who have abdicated all responsibility for their home's curb appeal. They have heaped considerable effort into maintaining their ridiculously shiny automobiles, however. Little, tiny, annoying cars that sound like a lawnmower when you wind them up...except they AREN'T lawnmowers and therein lies the problem.
NO ONE WHO LIVES BY YOU CARES THAT YOUR CAR IS SHINY.
NO ONE WHOSE YARD IS BEING INFESTED BY YOUR DAMNED DANDELIONS WANTS TO WATCH YOU WASH YOUR CAR FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS WEEK WHILE YOUR LAWN CONTINUES TO GROW.
IF YOU DID NOT WANT TO CARE FOR A LAWN, YOU SHOULD HAVE REMAINED IN YOUR APARTMENT DWELLING INDEFINITELY.
Phew. That's better.
Look. Guys. I don't want to be 'that lady' who calls the City on you when your yard looks as heinous as it does, but I'm no longer above it. It's either that or you're soon to find me with Round-Up inscribing your lawn with a few choice phrases. I've just had it with all of you. Either pay someone to wash your ride or someone to cut your lawn or both. Either way, you MUST cut your damned grass on the regular or I'm going to come unglued even further.
Okay. I feel better now, for the most part.
I'm going to study for my Contracts II exam if that is okay with everyone.
