Let's say a final 'Goodbye!' (hopefully) to some annoying people and trends from 2009.
*Goodbye Jon & Kate - I used to like watching the show, your kids are fun and adorable. But now I realize that you two are really screwed up, money hungry, attention whores. Poor kids. Save some of their money for the therapy that they'll need when they hit their teens. But you'll probably blow through their money as fast as Courtney Love blows through her kid's money.
*Goodbye to another person who is obviously desperate for attention and in need of much therapy - Octo-Mom. I just don't know what to say about that wacko except for Poor kids.
*Goodbye to Angelina Jolie. Please already. Really tired of media speculations on pregnancies, break-ups and 'secrets' to their relationship. She was a wacko before she started collecting/making kids - and that kind of wacko doesn't just go away. And if they aren't getting any attention, she'll say or do something to get attention. That relationship will end very badly.
*Goodbye to all the media attention on Tiger Woods. I hope that his wife had a 'No Cheating' clause in their pre-nup so that she can get a big payout. I'm sure the payout will be big either way. I hope that we won't be subjected to interviews and media coverage of all the slags he's been with. Oh. Too late to hope for that.
*Goodbye to those Kardashians. Please. Goodbye. Go away. 2 of them were appearing in AC at the Borgata this Summer. I kept wondering what was the 'talent' they would be sharing with their audience and what type of knuckleheads were the audiance to go and pay to see them?
*Goodbye to phrases like 'Fashionista' and 'Recessionista' - they've been used enough over the past few years. I'm tired of hearing them. Also 'Vintage is Green' as a way to advertise vintage clothing (sorry to my fellow vintage clothing sellers) But I'm not going to buy something just because it's 'Green' - Not that I don't care about our Earth, but I just like vintage. You know, old school vintage.
*Goodbye to 'Va-jay-jay' - totally sick of hearing that phrase too. I mean, come on grow up. Why would you call your patootie a 'va-jay-jay'?
* Goodbye to shows about Teenagers living like 40 year olds. Are people really interested in watching overdressed 12 year olds, whoring around with their overly dramatic lives? Although I do enjoy how they make fun of those shows on The Soup.
* Goodbye to Mad Men - ok, I do really like the show, even though I haven't seen the last 2 episodes yet. So I'm not saying goodbye to the show itself. I'm just tired of seeing Mad Men everywhere else. I'm tired of seeing every other thing on ebay and etsy described as being 'Mad Men Style' when most aren't even remotely Mad Men in any way. To clarify, I am for correct use of Mad Men as a keyword, and I love how Mad Men has given attention to vintage fashion. I'm just annoyed by the incorrect spammy usage of it.
Don Draper was voted the most influential man by some website. Jeez, what does that say about our society. I mean, he is super handsome and stuff, but he is a self-centered mess.
* Goodbye to Sarah Palin. I can't figure out if she's delusional or ignorant. Maybe she's both. She can't possibly think that all the media attention she gets means that people actually like her. They are making fun of you Sarah dear.
I could probably go on and on. I tend to do that sometimes. But I will stop my list here, and maybe come back with some more things as I remember how much they annoyed me this year.
