The Oscars – whatta crock – instead, I’ll be watching the new chicken channel!

I’ve never been one for award shows. To me, they seem like annual self-indulgent, self-congratulatory glitzy and over the top spectacles that symbolise all that is wrong about Western culture.

And it’s not just the Academy Awards. All of those Hollywood pieces of crap with their red carpets, designer clothes (“who are you wearing” – GAG!) and fake smiles. And a gazillion folks will be wasting their time watching this smut tonight!

Get a life, people!

OK – I needed to vent. Bad day today what with the Gunners LOSING to Birmingham in the Carling Cup final. BIRMINGHAM!!!! As a friend said on Fabebook earlier,

Birmingham – don’t we do nuclear testing there…SHOUDN’T WE DO NUCLEAR TESTING THERE…Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr……………….

And that’s not all! I had the fortune of being treated to the usual big telecom company crap about not giving a shit about the customer! I worked it out with a customer “service” rep last week to allow me my daughter to do the hardware upgrade thing a few weeks early (ooooo… what a favour!) as she lost her phone last weekend a need something new.

“Yes, sir!” That was the answer I was given after the rep went back and forth with her Supervisor for about 10 minutes. “She can do the full upgrade”.

Woo-hoo! BUT, we get to the Bellworld (who was the slacker who thought of THAT name for their stores?) and the upgrade is NOT in the system! I get pissed off. The kid too. And we stomp out of there having wasted a good half hour of our lives that we will never get back! What incompetence!

Yeah, switch companies, right? Sure. And the service I get from Rogers or would be privy to from Telus, et al would be any better? J’en doute! Besides, she is taking responsibility for this phone which means she really doesn’t want to pay the C note that Rogers charges for the 8 Gb iPhone.

Anyhooooo… back to work tomorrow where all will be peachy keen coming up roses. No complications. No drama.

Right?

  1. I’m one of the gazillion that will be watching that smut tonight and I’ll probably quite enjoy it! Don’t worry, you can too… the chicken channel only starts tomorrow, you won’t miss a thing.

    Worst case scenario, if you do miss the awards tonight, I’ll probably blog about it so you’ll be able to stay up to date on the inner happenings in tinsel town that way. You know, worst case scenario. 😉
