Every once in a while I start daydreaming about starting an anonymous blog which would just be a list of grievances, people I would consider public enemies, those who are truly a drain on resources and don’t deserve to roam the planet. I’m not talking about the handicapped, indigent or people living off government cheese, I’m talking about people who truly don’t understand...

This is totally me. My name is Chaely and I’m an Intervention addict. I also enjoy the occasional episode of Bridezillas. I blame my 3 years as an event florist, but that’s probably just the denial speaking.

Dear America, You are stuffed full of some of the most impressive idiots on this planet. PEOPLE, STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU READ & HEAR.

Bill Clinton flies to North Korea, one of the most dangerous and volatile countries on the planet, to help free two American journalists who have been held captive for nearly 5 months, meanwhile the blogging youth of America proceeds to not give a shit about it.

Me: I think I'll go with the latter.
Craigslist Car Ads Are Bullshit
Twice this week I have inquired by email about cars for sale on Craigslist. Twice I have received responses from “people” who don’t live in this state (one is supposedly in PA although the ad says it’s a “florida car” and it was listed in Ann Arbor, the other claims to be a sargeant of the US military stationed in Croatia [ha!]. That car is allegedly with him -...
