Jesus Is My Homeboy tee.. eww

Here I am in my room gazing at one of my Christmas presents and wondering if the friend who gave it to me really knows me (we've been friends for over 5 years). A camouflaged tee with the written word "Chronic", and a handful of marijuana leaves grace the back, and the front, "Jesus Is My Homeboy", completes the design. Hmmm... whatever was she thinking. First off, I'm not comfortable wearing a tee claiming that Jesus, the Son of God, hangs out with me. Sure I strike up a conversation with him, but it's only when I seem to get into impossible situations; We're not THAT close. Secondly, camouflage should only be worn by those in the military. The puke green color serves a purpose for our men and women in the armed forces. I won't even question what that purpose may be. My mind refuses to accept the fact that camouflage was, or is, in vogue. And the marijuana logo? Well... I didn't inhale. Not my style. I believe I'll pass it on to a friend who appreciates eclectic clothes. Tees with tacky words are a turn off. Is this a subtle form of communication? What are you trying to tell me? Another peeve is trucker hats. Why would I dress down by accessorizing with a trucker hat? Okay, perhaps it's the "in" thing. Von Dutch rules, right? (Thank you Ashton Kutcher and Paris Hilton.) I know I'm stepping on some toes here, but I hope everyone who reads this has an open mind. If society had fashionista police, we'd have hundreds of thousands of people in prison... many of them would be fashion designers. Thank goodness this is not the case since our prisons are overcrowded already. Although a glimpse of an inmate in Versace digs brings a smile to my face. I do love my friend; I know she meant well and... it's the thought that counts.

Anyone get a gift they'd like to give away, hide, use as a rag, or pass off to someone with er...poor taste? Share!

It is a little difficult to read a black Internet page, but my eyesight is slowly coming back. Lousy Christmas presents? ... Well, my mother purchased a jacket that might have been worn by the later obese Elvis, complete with rhinestones, and I will have to wear it -- because my mother informs me that it is "hip" and I am a "bohemian artist," so I'll appreciate it. This is meant to induce guilt because I teach and write for a living, when I might have been a successful pharmacist, like Mrs. Dougherty's son. At least, she sighs as she says this, I am not gay.

Chocolate-scented body lotion, gel, etc. I don't know that I particularly enjoy smelling like dessert. This means that either: a) people will like the smell and want to bite me (which could be a very good thing or a very, very baaaaad thing) or b) people think I bake a lot of chocolate things, which is bad because I am not skinny and people probably think I hang around the chocolate a bit too much.

trucker hats: i could not agree more. im living in new zealand at the moment, and the damn things have reached a level of ubiquity that normal hats could only dream of attaining. and the whole von dutch thing, i know people like to follow trends, but this is ridiculous. i really really hate pointless fads, and in turn the people who follow them. i wish everyone would learn to think for themselves. yes.

Hello, and I like your blog! Very nice. Actually, with the exception of the marijuana leaves, I'd wear that shirt. But I'm tacky like that.
