ten things i hate about you...

Delivered with some considerable delay, my first ever meme:

1. Emos.

I have posted on this before. I can't even stand the word, let alone the purported persona that is attached to these people. Yes, life is shit somtimes. Yes, the facists have fucked us all. But for god's sake, pull yourself together and get a bloody job.

2. Public Spitters.

I know most probably dislike this, but I find it utterly repulsive


3. Stupid Questions.

I have wonderful, fantastic & beautiful friends from all walks of life. For this fact I'm incredibly grateful. However, the other night at dinner when I was discussing the work that I had done with indigneous people in Africa, someone asked me: "No, but tell me, seriously...were you tempted to buy the diamonds?".

Oh, well of course, I only do the social justice stuff in order to ease my conscience when the light catches my latest 5 carat purchase.

4. Out of control binge drinkers.

No. I don't want to see your tits.

Yes. Running in to that hedge that covers a wrought iron fence is going to hurt.

5. Inconsiderate Cyclists.

Saving the environment: good. Running down innocent bystanders at pedestrian crossings: bad.

6. Accent shifts.

I have the most disturbing accent ever at the moment. I really hate it. I'm watching neighbours repeats to try and flush out my weird Australian/Southern England/Mancunian mess.

7. Liberal Party Campaigners

I was driving the other day and there were these two young blokes decked out in full party costuming (hats, caps, flags) waving at motorists, trying to drum up support. Has my homeland morphed in to the United States while I've been gone?

8. Bitchiness

Don't get me wrong, I like a good natter over a nice cup of tea. Tearing someone to shreds for something to do? Not cool.

9. Racists.

My heart goes out to the family of Murrinyi Domadagee.

10. Career Public Servants.

Don't get me one my sister works for the Art Gallery which is a government run body, but god, the attitude of some of these people is incredible. Their notion of work? Even more astounding.

If anyone is still reading this...I tag Frog, Cowboy, Chloe, Julia & Danielle.

They're very fond of that kind of campaigning in Japan. They send people out in vans to wave at passing motorists. It's two parts amusing and one part highly disturbing.

Stay back! Don't go away again! Are you on facebook?

Chloe said...

okay Luli, i will!

Ah, thanks Ms Apple. I've given it some thought and I think we should fire up a cross country Rudd supporting duo. We'll pick up an old tarago, deck it out and drive our way across the country and in to a new federal government!

Looking forward to reading your meme lovely Chloe.

Thanks.

About the airplanes, I am supposed to arrive in New-York on september 11th... so, I think I'll be terrified until then.

Glad to see you're back.

Danielle said...

Alright, Luli. I'm going to give it my best shot!

That is a spectacular idea. We'll have to rig up some speakers on the top to play really annoying whistle music, but it'll be grand!

I'll be heading up to Brisvegas in the first week of october. We should definitely have a beer to discuss ways in which to save the world.
