Ricky Gervais makes of the Golden Globes

Posted in Aggravating, films, Lives of Others, News on January 18, 2011 by The Speechless Gab Dork

Do you watch the Golden Globes? I sat through that thing this past Sunday for the first time ever, and all I wanted to do was shoot myself. But had I done that, I wouldn’t have been able to hear Ricky Gervais make fun of the very show he’s hosting and the celebrites associated with it. Watch the video, its worth it.

Now according to Pop Eater, Gervais will not be asked back to the Golden Globes. He seems perfectly fine with it, but that’s not my beef.

You hire a comic to keep a boring thing interesting, he makes a bunch of jokes, and now you’re all “boo-hoo” about it? What did you expect? I used to have respect for the Golden Globes. I thought if a film didn’t win the Oscars, they could defend with “But at least we got a Golden Globe.” But nope, these guys gave Johnny Depp an award for talking…..erm singing in Sweeney Todd (They must have really wanted to meet him) and has yet to give Dexter “Best Television Drama” and also went an nominated RED for a Best Picture. talk about shaking my damn head.

In life, if you get mad fun of. deal with it, and shut up.

Thank you Ricky Gervais for thanking God for making you an athiest!

found this on which oddly enough keeps getting 403’ed


Because I never say thanks enough

Well for starters Happy Thanksgiving. This was never really a holiday celebrated growing up, so I’m not greatly enthused about it as my social circle is. I am though thankful for many things, and though I wont be at any dinners to say this, I figure I’ll say them online. (P.S. DO NOT let this be the only time you feel to be thankful for what you have, and if you do, then you clearly need to re-asses your life!)

I’m thankful that despite some downfalls of the time, 2010 has been a most excellent year for me to remember.

I’m thankful for the time and a half I’ll be making at work today.

I’m thankful for the amazing clothes Threadless puts out every week, thereby strengthening the awesomeness that company is.

I’m thankful for some businesses being open for those that can’t afford to have a Thanksgiving dinner or will be alone on this day.

I’m thankful for the many people that’ll be at homes today, so I will not run into much traffic going to and from work.

I’m thankful that I am weeks away from graduating and getting a college degree (even if I’m not stopping to attain a higher one).

I’m thankful for the low temperature that’s coming pretty soon. (break out the winter clothes baby!)

I’m thankful for the farmer, to the laborer, to the grocery store all putting a hand in the food I will eat later today.

I’m thankful that even though I’m getting spam in my mailbox today, the majority of them had the decency to say Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m thankful that I’m still alive and kicking enough to be around friends.

I’m thankful for the friendships I’ve made within the year, and for the ones in the future.

I’m thankful for the people who are actually reading this and other entries(though some feedback would be nice from time to time).

I’m thankful for being able to freely flow my thoughts through writing, whether it’s through here or the stories I write.

I’m thankful for the friend who wants me to talk and actually does listen.

Bring on the noms gobble gobble


I’m thankful for all my friends, because if it weren’t for them, I would be jobless, homeless, and probably holding up a sign on the street asking for money (and quite frankly, I doubt I can pull off being a World War II veteran)


My son is gay (via Nerdy Apple Bottom)

Kudos to Cop’s Wife of Nerdy Apple Bottom for defending her son’s request to dress as The Mystery Team’s Daphne for Halloween! It did not cross her mind that he might be gay, and she could care less. Sometimes we tend to forget how much of our children’s personalities are based on the teachings of the adults that surround them. We need more people like this woman in the world.

my favorite line was “I am not worried that your son will grow up to be an actual ninja so back off.”

My son is gay Or he’s not. I don’t care. He is still my son. And he is 5. And I am his mother. And if you have a problem with anything mentioned above, I don’t want to know you. I have gone back and forth on whether I wanted to post something more in-depth about my sweet boy and his choice of Halloween costume. Or more specifically, the reactions to it. I figure if I’m still irked by it a few days later, I may as well go ahead and post my thoughts. Here are th … Read More
