Idle Hands Are The Devil's Tools

God. Politics has been so boring lately and I have a confession - I blogged today on childcare, not because I was really feeling it at the moment, but because there was nothing better to talk about (and that's not to say I didn't mean what I said; just wasn't into it at the time). This was likely very apparent.

But really, I had a horribly boring day which was just perfect given the horribly boring political climate. What I really wanted to post on were habits that I hate. I know it's completely unrelated to politics, but being downtown and around so many people while I was in a bad mood got me thinking... if I were Queen, what would I not allow into my kingdom? Here's what I came up with:

1. People who chew with their mouths open - it's not a show.
2. Kids who suck blue, purple, orange, etc coloured popsicles and get their teeth grossly discoloured.
3. Parents who give their kids those popsicles - kids are gross enough, really...
4. The jack-rabbit... ladies, you know what I'm talking about!
5. Anything related to hip hop - the language, the clothes, the attitude, ALL OF IT!
6. Randy Fucking Jackson.
7. People who don't properly clean their dishes, so crusted food remains on the backs of forks.
8. Cheap people or people who just want to "borrow" some money but "promise" to pay back. Keep the damn money!
9. Having the Purolater dude come into the office to give me a package, but tell me to hold on because he would like to finish his private conversation on our curteousy phone and then try to redeem himself by proving that he can turn Sir Wilfred Laurier on a five-dollar bill into Mr. Sprock from Star Treck. Bravo!
10. Gold-digging airheads with no intelligence and a whole lot of attitude. Usually found in Kits or along West Georgia during the day.

So there you have it... a very grumpy, yet horribly bored Pedro adding no apparent value to the larger blogging community. Without something interesting, these idle hands will become the devil's tools... or perhaps they are already on their way.

Oh and a bonus:

11. 14-year old girls with their gunts hanging out of their undersized lululemon sweat pants and a toy-sized dog in their plastic purses. How Paris Hilton. How 2004. How unoriginal.

BC Scandal Part II? Still waiting. Motivate yourself Pedro. The bad men can't hurt you anymore.

No one is going to hurt me, but I promise, I'll work on it over the weekend.
