You can almost see the news casters going “OH MY GOD” how did this guy get on the show! This guy had the hard part of getting on the TV down, but totally blew the part where he was actually supposed to be good. I hope it was all a prank on, otherwise it’s just too sad.
So, I was perusing the BBC this morning in my usual “what’s going on in the world” sort of mode when I came across this article. It’s not the usual article that I’m so used to seeing about Venezuela, so I thought I’d share it on here.
The article was the featured “Today in pictures” article and it was about red devil festival. No, not the vacuum cleaners, but a folkloric festival celebrating people laying down their sins before the church and the church forgiving them. I won’t go into a whole deal about how it’s God and not the church that people should be seeking forgivness from, but anyway, it was a nice article.
I’ve mentioned before about how this other girl comes into my office to talk to my office mate and complain about her boyfriend, right? OK, well, homegirl has what I call “Muriel’s Wedding” syndrome in a big way. She really, really, really wants to get married and she is somehow convinced that this guy she’s been dating is the one.
This morning, she comes in here and starts to complain. Turns out, her boyfriend told her about a month ago or so that he was saving for something big, but he couldn’t tell her what it was. Well, this weekend, he broke down and told her what he was saving for. Are you ready? He was saving for…
A PS 3
I just about busted out laughing. She was thinking that he was saving to buy her a ring, or to take her on vacation somewhere or something along those lines. She said she told him he was a “man-child” and that she hopes he enjoys his game. She also said “You never tell a woman that you’re saving for something, unless it’s something that’s for her…” blah, blah. I was thinking, what a selfish c-word. The world does not revolve around you.
But wait, there’s more!
The boyfriend in question is uber-religious (she’s not) and he is a firm believer in the no sex until marriage (she’s not). He’s a 34 year old virgin. I think it’s commendable that he’s stuck to his guns for all this time, specially given all the pressures of modern day life. She’s been dating him for about 2 years now, so in a sense, it’s commendable of her too. He won’t get married because “God hasn’t told him to get married” which his GF thinks is B.S. I think she was thinking her undercarriage was going to get a bit of the how’s your father, and now she had that taken away since he wants a PS3 instead of marrying her. You’d think she’d get the hint.
