December is great, right? Christmas, Christmas music, Christmas lights, yummy food....and getting your car registered.
I don't know what I was thinking when I bought a car in December. It was probably something along the lines of "This car that I have now doesn't work, and I need a new one." But really having to register your car every December when you're already spending money on plane tickets and presents, and your car is old and you need to do a safety and emissions test every stinking year? Yeah, that's annoying.
And while I'm talking about annoying, someone posted something on facebook about their pet and referred to themselves as their pet's "mom." People, while you may feel familial love for your pets, you are NOT related to them, and if there is any blood shared between you and your pet, that's just sick. You are the OWNER, not the mom or the dad. You may be able to "adopt" them, but they are not your same species, so the relationship ends there.
And also, Armageddon is spelled "Armageddon," not "Armaghetton," which seems like a wild and crazy spaghetti eating contest, not the war to end all wars.
These last two things are things I restrained from making snarky comments about on facebook. I filtered. It was hard. But I did it. Sometimes I see things like that, and I want to fix it, express my opinion, make the world a better place. Then there's Humble Darcy in the back of my brain that says "This isn't important, Darcy, and no one needs to hear (and no one cares) what you think about it." Which is why I guess I blog about it--it doesn't sit there festering in my brain, but at least I don't offend all these FB people and their child/dogs.
