I Believe, Part Eleven

by kim on February 18, 2010 · 29 comments

in belief

  • I believe that a life without coffee is no life at all.
  • I believe that Sarah Palin needs to stop writing on her hand.  That’s SO middle school.
  • And while we’re on the subject, I believe teabaggers are really angry white men gathered together to exert whatever leftover racism, xenophobia and misogyny they can muster up.  Maybe they have good refreshments.  I don’t know.
  • I believe there’s a beach with a comfy lounge chair and a strawberry daiquiri somewhere calling my name.
  • I believe that I almost always could use an extra half hour of sleep.
  • I believe that if Kevin Smith is too fat to fly on an airplane, then I’m going to have serious troubles.
  • I believe that I need to work on my patience.  It lacks in so many areas.
  • I believe the Winter Olympics are more interesting than the Summer Olympics. (And the debate starts…..NOW!)

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?

Sorry, Summer Olympics all the way. Unless we can find a way to turn curling into a drinking game.

Palin came through here on her book tour and I know of a few groups that were making a road trip from Charlotte to Nashville for the Tea Party convention.

Think I'll be joining you on that beach; I need to get the hell out of here.

I'm not sure about the tea baggers being angry thing. I'm not real conservative but I did stumble upon one of these tea parties last year and it was mostly a lot of old white people singing and laughing. I think it was more of an excuse just to get together… i dunno though. And I really haven't given the winter olympics a fair chance yet. I did enjoy watching some of the men figure skating… so funny. And no. I can never get enough sleep…

I think the tea bagging movement is kind of like Fox News. The first time you see it, you actually think it is genuine. Then you watch it for 10 minutes and you are like “whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat”?!?!?! It just may take some people, especially the older generation, longer to realize that the magic elixir that they are selling is actually bull shit. In the end, it will leave a bad taste in the mouth of U.S. History.

P.S. The winter Olympics blow.

I believe that Google Reader is too slow on picking up posts because I didn't see this one right away.

I believe that I have lived without coffee for 40 years and believe I can live another 40 without coffee.

I believe Sarah Palin just needs to stop.

I believe teabaggers don't have good refreshments, because I was at one of their parties and they didn't even have tea or scones. I mean, really.

I believe that beach is calling my name, but it is with good Bahamian mango rum.

I believe I need to be awake more than I have been. What time is it anyway?

I believe Kevin Smith … I don't believe anything about Kevin Smith.

I believe I need to work on my impatience as I methodically compose this comment.

I believe I hate all Olympics, well, except maybe the Special Olympics and that's only because I don't want to be viewed as politically incorrect.

I live for coffee . . . and can't stand Palin or the teabaggers (plus “teabaggers” just sounds dirty . . . and I think it is in some circles) . . .

I love curling with a passion . . .

Odd commenter out, b/c I agree, Kim – I love the Winter Olympics so much more than Summer. The Summer Games are too too – too crowded, too many countries/athletes, too many sports, etc. The Winter Games have a more intimate feel, which I like. Plus, gymnastics aside (and really, that's not comparable), the Winter Games have more glitter courtesy of the figure skating people. Any sporting event that has more glitter wins in my book.

I believe you are jealous of Sarah and her awesomeness. Before you start: let's not relive the darkest period of our friendship aka the 2008 election. Your hatred for Sarah and her magnificance was so depressing.

I believe the Olypmics as a whole just suck these days. Those athlete sob stories/overcoming the odds to triumph is so…lame. However, I do enjoy the hottie boys skating this year AND Shaun White has officially stolen my heart. Dude is good.

I believe I would support TP people and their events, if they were truly like tea parties. Doillies, petit fours and all.

I believe that cinnamon icecream is delicious.

The coverage of the olympics in Australia sucks – Australians don't have a lot of winter athletes, you see.

I believe teabaggers don't need much mustering to get their racism, xenophobia, or misogyny up…just like Sarah Palin will never need to write on her hand to remind herself to be hypocritical, dishonest, or stir up hatred…

I can't live without coffee.
That is all.

I write stuff on my hand all the time…

I believe that tomorrow is Friday and maybe I can make it until then. Maybe.

I'm with you on the coffee…best part of my morning, everyday.

It really is the best par of the morning. Any morning.

I'm also going to say that I totally agree with you about the coffee. I can't function without it. And sleep? I never say no to sleep!

Reply

Kimwithak February 21, 2010 at 4:37 pm

I never say no to sleep either.

“I believe that a life without coffee is no life at all.”

Preach it girl! People were telling me how they wanted to stop drinking coffee and such and I was like,”are you insane?”

Reply

Kimwithak February 21, 2010 at 3:34 pm

Unless it's like a health thing, then giving up coffee is just insane.

I believe that the Texas governor was sincere about seceding. Teabaggers galore there, you know.

I think he was absolutely sincere.

First of all, I think that beach scene sounds amazing as I sit and look at 3 feet of snow out my window!

Second, I have to disagree with the Olympic thing. I like Summer better because I love watching gymnastics. I always wanted to try it when I was little, but never did, so now I like to live vicariously through the girls on my TV :)

Kimwithak February 21, 2010 at 3:31 pm

There are a lot of people that disagree with me about the Olympic thing. Gymnastics seems to be a big reason why.

I believe that based on this post!? We'd be fabulous friends. Seriously. Love the entire list.

The Sarah Palin thing made me laugh… :)
