I just finished spendin' some non-quality time over at Facebook and Flirtomatic. Since comin' down from all the drama 'n the bullshit at both websites, I've thought up a brand new daily topic for my blog. I'm gonna call it "MDJ's Gripe o' the Day" (a/k/a GOTD) and this is gonna be MDJ's GOTD Post #1:
Tell me WHY is it that some people (mostly men....mostly UGLY men....and mostly bare-chested ugly-ass men at that) just loooooove to take pictures of themselves while standin' in front of a mirror? I'm sorry, but some half-naked ugly-ass overly-hairy or sunken-chested or big-beer-bellied fool who's standin' in front of a mirror and who's just a snap-snap-snappin' away at himself is a HUGE turnoff for me....especially when the pic comes out with that huge bright-ass white flash spot in it along with the image of a hand wrapped around the cell phone/camera. And if that ain't bad enuff, there's that awful awkwardness of tryin' to take the pic all by yerself. Ya either gotta get it lined up jusssssssssst riiiiiiiight with the mirror image or else ya wind up havin' one helluva nasty-ass-lookin' pic with either one or all of the above messes in it.
I mean REALLY, come ON now. Don't they have at least ONE FRIEND?...either a girlfriend, a guy friend, a family member, a neighbor, a co-worker, or SOMEBODY who can help 'em out 'n snap a quick pic of 'em? Jeez, if ya don't got any of the above kinda people nearby to help ya out, then maybe ya outta just swallow yer damn pride (oh yeah, like there's a whooooole lotta pride in tryin' to capture yer own image in front of a friggin' mirror) 'n PAY somebody to do it for crissake.
Hell, I'll betcha that some homeless bum on the street would love to take a pic of one of those fools just so he could make a couple o' bucks to put towards his next bottle of Thunderbird. Or better yet, I personally know of some crackheads who'd be dyin' to help these poor pitiful folks out (for a small, small fee that is) just so they can score "one more" vial of crack. I KNOW that they'd be willin' to snap a pic of ANYBODY for a quick buck, or two, or three.
Personally, I think its humiliatin' enuff when yer forced to hold a cell phone camera straight out in front of ya just to take a pic of yerself. But when ya then gotta go 'n stoop to the level of a mirror-assisted cell phone camera shot, well THAT just takes the damn cake in MDJ's book.
And that my dear friends is the story of the birth of "MDJ's Gripe o' the Day". Pretty darn smart of me, wouldn't ya say? I mean, I really think that's a brilliant idea I had. It made me so darn happy that I'm just gonna have to show ya what I look like when I'm smilin' from ear to ear. Can ya hang on a sec while I go grab my cell phone? ;-)
