By Paula Matter

I know all about shutting off people. During my stint as a bartender, I had to do it a few times. Today, I am shutting myself off. Lemme explain...

In the past few days I had started three or four different blog posts for today. None of them were turning out right. I restrained myself from being too vitriolic in one. Another post had me losing my own argument. And I don't remember the other two--I hadn't gotten very far with either of them.

What they all had in common, what prompted me to even start writing was my reaction to situations that pissed me off. I tried sorting through the anger, disgust, and frustration. And wound up more angry, frustrated and disgusted.

So, instead of trying to come up with a logical, objective post for today, I got nothin'.

Here are some cute photos to conjure up warm fuzzies:



*Anyone have a clue what the title refers to? No prize for guessing, but it'll give you a damn good idea on just one of the things that pissed me off this week.

The first thing that popped into my head on the word CENSORED was Chuck Lorre's vanity cards. Then my tiny little brain jumped to all the news and tabloid stories regarding Charlie Sheen and 2.5 Men.

Gotta admit, I'm watching the side-show like all the other rubberneckers. :)

No clue, Paula, but it seems like Sheen is a good guess. Seems like he's in an on-air competition with Khadafy to see which of them can come across as the biggest nutball. Then, of course, there are the religious #$%@!s whose exercise of free speech consists of disrupting military funerals. What were you thinking of?

Ding, ding, ding! C.L. nailed it, and Gina's also right.

Not wanting to provide more time to him and the craziness, I just couldn't bring myself to post about it.
