good vs bad

OK, I'm going to try and look at the good in everything too, because I'm about to tune you a rant.

While I bitch, I will also wax lyrical. Deal? Then I won't sound like the crusty, sock-wearing, silly bitch I really am.

The Bad: The crime in this country is out of control. It's madness, it's a serious frigging problem. It makes me want to move to Guam immediately.
The Good: Sorry am trying to find a good thing to say about crime, but after 5 minutes, this appears to be a fruitless brain-wracking. I actually can't say anything good about the government's attitude towards crime, poverty, violence, looting and pillage. Sorry.

The Bad: It's forking freezing in Joburg. Heaters, socks, three layers of polar wear (Sheksie. People love humping polar bears in nightclubs), toes that burn off in a luke-warm bath 'cos they're frozen numb, an empty, cold bed, seasonal depression.
The Good: Last year's winter was colder. No really.

The Bad: Feeling a bit unloved. By the whole world.
The Good: My gran loves me.

The Bad: Painting one's nails compulsively all day can turn into an obsession. Somebody help me, I need help: Twice on the runway, thrice in a bar over the weekend, twice in the car, once before work. It's my little 'thing' ok, it's what I do at the moment. It helps me focus on little distractions. But it's also an expensive habit when you're using Essie nailpolish.
The Good: My nails look bright and colourful, a little sexy, a little playful, and I'm now a PPP (polish painter pro.)

The Bad: Grey's Anatomy makes me cry. And Meredith Goody Two Shoes I'm Dating Two Apparently Desirable Men (Choose Finn, for God's sake woman! McNotdreamyatall is such a dork!) is so annoying I just want to gag her. The other characters on the other hand are Value Add. But Grey's still makes me cry like a girl.
The Good: Between 7:30pm and 8:30pm on Monday nights I don't answer phonecalls, or even paint my nails. I'm too glued to the TV to snack on chocolate. For just that hour: I don't care what the fuck is going on in the outside world.

The Bad: I'm not very computer literate. I wish I could programme shit, and design beautiful things and understand code, and crack gaming programmes, and hack into Absa, etc etc...but alas, I can't. I need to go on a geek course.
The Good: I discovered the tags element to Blogger. Good times.

Hey, you left out "the ugly".

Chan said...

I agree! I hate the fucken term "McDreamy" he's ugly, and the Meredith chick isn't pretty at all and she's a slut in the show so how can ppl like her? well every1 there has sex too soon etc. anyways, I agree about McDreamy, but the hop-on-the-train public all think he's so hot, coz magazines tell them so.

Swordsman II always makes me cry, so I ordered it from loot yesterday, if you haven't watched it before you must! Set it Off also always makes me cry, especially when Jada Pinkett is on the bus n looking at the other woman as they drive on, or when she phones the banker guy right at the end *gulp*.

I feel like crying now! i hate love.

Peaches said...

Meredith is useless and McDreamy is a wussy!

Christina is hillarious and the sex-on-legs-bastard-dr Karev (spelling??) is h.o.t.t. hot!

ChewTheCud said...

I gather Grey's hasn't started sucking yet then. Or else it does suck and you haven't noticed ;)

Peas on Toast said...

Kyk - huh?

Chan - For me Meredith is one of those dichotomous creatures who is a goodie two shoes holier than thou chick (gag), yet gets away with dating two men at once. Someone put a leash on her. ;) Ah babe, sorry you hate love! Just remember - you're not alone in this one. * sigh * xx

Peaches - hear, hear! Cristina and Izzie are my favourites.

Chew - Grey's definitely doesn't suck dollface. It makes me cry, but I NEVER miss an episode. If the Queen popped in for tea, during Grey's, I'd make her wait until I was done.

The Bad It's Tuesday morning!

The Good It's not Monday morning!

The Ugly My morning cup of coffee is more that 2 hours over due!

Peas on Toast said...

Kyk - ah, I geddit now. Sorry. Like Rev, my coffee was late this morgen.

Revvie - get your PA to bring you some Starbucks m'dear. You do have a PA right? OK, if not - I'm sure you can order it online. :)

Revolving Credit said...

No need to go to Starbucks, Cattura delivers coffee to the office. I think there are 4 blends. Have that stuff percolating whole day, just to lazy to comtemplte the 2 metre walk.

Secretary off sick..mm..maybe I should order online.

Dolce said...

The Bad I'm casually watching my job, life, boyf head down the outhouse long drop

The Good I've just had a trawl around some blogs, and it seems I'm not a alone.

Rimmel's not bad, for a brand sponsered by a undernourished waif.

Dolce said...

Oh, and add this to the bad: I don't have dstv/mnet. So I don't even get to have a McDreamy opinion.

Peas on Toast said...

Revvie - definitely order online. Two metres walk is a ball ache at any time of the day.

Dolce - hugs m'dear. You are so not alone it's frightening. And on MNET - McDreamy is overrated, this I promise.

8Ball said...

Morning Peas

So the crime sucks, it's cold, nobody loves you except your gran, you could paint an ants mandible blue if required, and you cry during Grey's. Oh, and YOU are not very computer literate..

Man, you make me laugh....

Here's a question, who do you relate to the most on GA?

Wait...let me guess....

You're as cynical and tactless as Christina
As depressed as Izzy
And as bad at choosing men as Meredith...

Haha, I know you pretty well for a newbie huh?

Peas on Toast said...

8Ball - fuck that's unbelievably astute! Holy shitballs!

You'd better tell me who you are now (email address to the right), because I'm so impressed, you have to know me from somewhere.

Chester Pillow said...

The Bad: Meredith is the original slapper!
The Good: Feel sorry for the poor vet!

Peas on Toast said...

Ches - well I suppose Finn got off lucky. :)

jd said...

what do u mean that you are feeling unloved?

Peas on Toast said...

jd - :) I think it all boils down to just feeling sorry for myself. :)

8Ball said...

Nah...just been dating a girl who is unbelievably like you for a while now...so feel like I know you

She also hates McDreamy, she also gets herself down for no real reason, she also loves with everything, she also drinks too much and says the wrong things, and she also has bad weeks before the good one's, so I'll leave...

As funny and unique as Christina
As caring as Izzie
And as spontaneous as Meredith

for next week...
;)

Peas on Toast said...

8bALL - Oh bless! I like your lady already! She's a real catch, you know that right? ;)

You're a sweetheart.

8Ball said...

She is indeed Peasy :)

And thanks, I haven't always been...

Chester Pillow said...

It's Pea's Anatomy right here!

lordwiggly said...

"Wax lyrical" - is that when you sing whilst a beautician rips your pubes out?

Peas on Toast said...

Ches - isn't it just?

Lordwiggly - Well, I wouldn't know. A beautician has never ripped my pubes out.

ThomG said...

I love ya', Peas. I truly do.

Peas on Toast said...

Thanks ThomG! * smooch * :)

jd said...

why, aren;t things looking better than a week ago?

Peas on Toast said...

JD - they are much better than a week ago. In general things are fine, I'm just going through the motions.

Dizzy Dee said...

I don't watch much TV, but I do LOVE Grey's theme song.

TJ said...

Personally, I think Meredith has an unbelievable ass! My girlfriend thinks so too... Mmmmm!

Then again, I'm basing this on the first ever season of Greys and they don't give her bum much screentime these days! :-(

Anyway, Peas... I'm new to your clearly very passionate fan club! A friend sent me to visit you - very glad about that!

What IS interesting though - I knew your legs before I knew you! :-) Gotta love FACEBOOK!

Will be back.

Tyrone said...

Evening!

Personally, I love Greys but I like Meredith's ass even more. My girlfriend agrees which (of course) only improves my opinion of the show!

Then again, I base this on the very first season of Greys when the directors had a habit (love them) of dedicating a fair amount of time to Meredith's posterior in scrubs... Thoughts of playing doctor-doctor swamped my testosterone-fueled male brain. I tell you what, if that bum was on my doctor, I'd be a hypo of note!

Anyway... Enough about the bum (love it), Peas - I'm new to your passionate fan club. Was directed to you by a friend - so glad about that! But I have to confess, I knew your legs before I knew you. Gotta love FACEBOOK (and your legs)!

Will definitely be back for more! Keep up the good work, the PPP stuff, even the vajayjay in headlights... Endearing!

That guy you know said...

Sorry guy, i have to say it House MD whips Greys on any given day!! The script on that show is just too banging! Period, and not of the monthly kind!!

Peas on Toast said...

Tyrone - why hello there! I assume you're TJ as well. Thanks for popping through m'dear, and the legs say hi as well. ;)

Guy that I know - House is excellent. Agreed. But on a par with Grey's.
