Really? Worst day EVER?

In the wake of the deaths of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, I'm amazed that so many of my friends' Facebook statuses are something in the realm of: "This is the worst day ever." < -- yes, that was literally the Facebook status of several friends.

Really? The worst day ever, eh? Worse than September 11? Worse than the day someone you actually knew and loved (a grandparent/parent/sibling) died or got sick? Worse than the TWO days George W. Bush was inaugurated? 

It's sad for the Jackson and Fawcett families but honestly ... let's cut the melodrama here. 

It's been a great day for ME so far -- got up early, did some exercise for an hour to enjoy the sunshine before it gets super hot, and ate a pathetic -slash- delicious breakfast of cherry tomatoes, a Clif Bar and almond butter. Yummo. 

Packing, packing, packing! I leave TOMORROW!! And the weather looks warm-ish -- I'm thinking "Vancouver in August" -ish. 


  1. I literally said the SAME thing to my friend at dinner tonight. Down to the George W./September 11th. You're obviously spot-on, again!

  2. Simply genius.

    Also, why cry about it? Why not just play tribute and listen to MJ, watch Charlie's Angels instead. You didn't KNOW these people. Come on, it's not like when Tim Russert died ;)

  3. It's ridiculous. All these gays were like "RIP Farrah Fawcett" and I'm like really? You don't even KNOW her. She's way before your time and please...you did not jerk it to her swimsuit cover. So seriously? Cut the drama lol. I was so over those statuses...so lame.
