AM Hates: The Royal Wedding

CELEBRATE NOW!

I have no idea about the german flag on the side, one world cup and two world wars, that is all germany.

I am unsure if it is just me, well I’m pretty sure someone else is as annoyed as me but anyway, the royal wedding is really getting on my nerves. I am English for a start and I see it is a mindless publicity stunt to pique interest in the royal family. Honestly I nothing the royal family, sure they’re nice to look at and have some bling but they don’t actually do anything of value. Sure it’s a wedding and I’m happy for them but it has no real significance at all, other than the fact that two people are being joined in marriage. Even at home anyone under the age of 40 doesn’t really care about it.

So the man-child finally got married to his sweetheart, that’s nice for them but where exactly does that leave us, nowhere, we all know the Queen of England is going to live forever and he’ll never see the throne. The coverage is over the top however, I mean whole pull-outs in the news. Is there no interesting plane crash or something for them to cover?
Even worse is the fact the America seems to be somewhat fascinated by the whole affair, I can’t escape it. It holds so little significance for me personally that when asked by some waitress who is getting married I replied without thinking ‘ I dunno, the queen or something?’
Those are the lengths I’ve gone to in order to erase the whole thing from my mind. It really gets on my nerves, I want to kill every single American that asks me about it as if I have the inside scoop, the sharp objects begin to look real useful.

A.K.A Bender and Tinkerbell

Shit listed for life. No exceptions. Thanks for taking him away America we owe you big time.

Royal wedding, celebrate peasants, I’m surprised nobody was holding the talk show clap and laugh cards. If you clapped out of time it’d be off with your head and they’d feed your remains to the Queens corgis. Also I request an explanation for the invitation of another person who is on my shit list, David Beckham, what is the medal for he hasn’t done shit. For football or anything else. I also want to know why they invited Tinkerbell (Victoria Beckham.)
Also a big thank you to the USA for taking the Beckhams off our hands, no more crappy football (soccer) playing or shitty solo albums.

I have almost got it all out of my system, I will give one allowance on my Beckham point, at least it isn’t Bono. I’d take Beckham over that sunglasses sporting douche any time. I really don’t understand everyone’s fascination with this whole event, with one exception, women. Every little girl or so I’m told, dreams of marrying a prince. I can understand why women would enjoy this crap. The other thing, in the days before hand it was my second or third week in the USA and they were placing bets on the royal wedding?
From what she’d wear to all kinds of strange stuff. It was retarded to be honest. I think that’s all, I got it out.

Today I went to a wake.

Posted in America, Death, Misanthropy, People, Relationships on June 2, 2011 by MISANTHROPIST

Today for the first time in my life I attended a wake, my family are Catholic but we’re not exactly practicing and I was not Baptized nor do I attend church. I’ve never really understood the concept of a wake, I mean it’s nice to be able to say goodbye and all but I’ve always believed that your last memories of a loved one should be happy ones. It isn’t pleasant to see your loved one in that state. It cannot be a pleasant experience for anyone. This is something I’ve never understood about this ritual. It is beyond me that you’d want to see someone you love in that state, it is painful for anyone to experience that. In accordance with the faith they are with God now but that isn’t exactly comforting unless you have an unwavering belief in it. After all it isn’t the death that makes me uncomfortable it is the mourning. Who am I to judge?

The second thing is that it is funny how a death in the family can bring everyone together more effectively than anything that the person could have done in life, it’s pretty sad too. It’s also strange that people who don’t know one another will pretend that they do and know that they can do this without being called on it due to that fact that their loved one has passed away. I mean it doesn’t particularly annoy me or anything, it’s just that they do not even try to correct it or admit they are wrong, it saves further errors. They’re not offending anyone, anyway how can you expect someone to know who you are if you have not seen them in over five or even ten years?

The other thing is that the holy men make me feel uncomfortable, this time I was wrong in my assumption but I usually feel as if they are going to ask questions with an agenda to indoctrinate you or even guilt you into attending church. In this case the father said his piece and shook the hands of a few people including myself, it made me feel uneasy. It isn’t fear of them more nervous as if they know that I’m not buying it. With respect I will say that even though I felt uneasy he did his part and left due to a meeting with another church official, people including myself were surprised he didn’t stay longer. I suppose he had some church stuff to do.

The whole thing was just surreal to be honest, people were not crying so much, there was sadness but mostly inhibited sadness.  It was a nice service and I got to know a lot of people, who all loved my accent. The food was also great. It was a sad occasion but it was as happy as a sad occasion could possibly be.

EDIT:
Another thing about death is how you go from a person to and object because your heart has stopped beating, from that point on you’re treated as a thing and not a person that kinda sucks.

To do list…

Lately my life has gained a lot more meaning, being away from where I come from has put things into perspective for me. Due to all the new things I have realized and the new places I have seen I’ve decided to compile a list of things that I’m going to do, some are necessary and others are not. They are all good for me in the long-term.

1.) Sort my life out,
this includes getting a job and working harder towards my goals, including writing on this blog, basically this is me getting my life started as it has been on hold for way too long.
2.)Learn to play guitar.
I never did and I always wanted to learn.
3.)Read more philosophy.
Interesting shit yo, this also includes reading more in general.
4.)Work out,
I’ve gained some weight while here and I might as well turn it into muscle.
5.)Exercise my mind,
Being stupid is worse than being dead for me personally.
6.)Be happy.
I’m almost there, I’ll get back to you on this one when I’m gray and have new things to be unhappy about. I’m happy for what I have right now so I’m going somewhere with this one.

I’m sure there is more but what the hell….
