Bonjourno! It is Friday! Yes yes. I have a couple of internet-related things that I would like to get off my chest before my (mostly) internet-free weekend.
What is up with this new article reader thing on Facebook?
Yes, I would like to read about how Miley Cyrus forgot her underwear. Who doesn’t? Of course I click on it. But then this happens:
Um, no. Noo thank you. Just because I feel like reading about how Miley Cyrus forgot to wear underwear, does not mean I would like everyone I have known in my entire life to know that I am reading articles about Miley Cyrus forgetting to wear underwear.
WTF Facebook/Yahoo? Why do my Facebook friends need to know what articles I’m reading? Sometimes I read things that are not reflective of my geniosity, and it’s embarrassing. This has really been bothering me. I just want to read the article, I don’t want everyone to know! If I like something, believe me, I’ll share it. You gotta be so careful on the internets, man. They are sneaky.
Anyway, whatever, I just go over to Google and type in the headline so that I can continue to read trashy articles safely.
I was reading it and I was banging my fist on my desk saying “That is exactly what I do!” Ah, The Oatmeal gets me.
And this is why no one likes you, Yahoo. You just continue to suck.
My next item of bitchiness is also internet related. What is going on with Pinterest lately? It was so much better before it got all popular, but now all the idiots have made accounts and are ruining it for everyone (as idiots always do). Just pinning random stupid things that no one cares about, or things that don’t link to anything, or have absolutely no purpose, or pinning things in the complete wrong category (like pictures of kittens in the DIY category)…or people writing me hate comments because I repinned a quote I liked that says it was said by the wrong person.
It’s hard to read, but it says: You say that you love rain, but you open your umbrella when it rains. You say that you love the sun, but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines. You say that you love the wind, but you close your windows when wind blows. This is why I am afraid; You say that you love me too…
That’s not even Shakespearean language, I know this, but I really liked the quote and I couldn’t find another picture of it, so I didn’t care. I have done some googling, and apparently the original author is unknown.
Perhaps I am the idiot here for repinning a quote that is said by the wrong person, but that is not the point. The point is, who cares? People have too much time on their hands. Go police your own pins. I don’t have time to fact check everything I pin, come on now.
So anyway, those are my two internet rants…
And I do have a few things I would like to share:
The Trustworthiness of Beards. I would be okay if people knew I was reading that. It is informative, and also funny.
This major cat fail:
(That made me laugh so hard)
It made me feel pretty old.
Have a good weekend!
