These Games They Really Do You In When You’re Making Up Your Own Rules

I’ve noticed lately that my most popular blog posts are those featuring memes.

As I’ve mentioned before, I didn’t really start this blog to gain a ton of followers.  I started it because I enjoy writing, but often feel unmotivated to do so.  Updating a blog forces me to work on my writing on a fairly regular basis, which I’m hoping will eventually translate into better creative/fictional writing.  Blogging is also fun because it gives me an outlet to share random thoughts, reviews, etc.  I share a lot with the people in my life, but some things just seem better suited for sharing on a blog.  For example, most people in my life wouldn’t benefit from wedding planning advice.  A random person who stumbles upon my blog might, though.

But anyway … The point of all of that is to say that I don’t always make an effort to post things that I think will be “popular.”

Today, however, I am.

I’m pretty sure I’ve written about my love/hate relationship with Facebook in the past.  I appreciate that it gives me the opportunity to stay in touch with people I might have lost touch with otherwise.  I enjoy seeing pictures that my close friends and family share, especially since a lot of them live far away.

But … I hate some of the random shit that people post.  I don’t care what you had for lunch, nor do I want to see an Instagram picture of your peanut butter sandwich.  I don’t want to try to decipher what you mean when you tipe lyke dis nd thnk ppl can reed it.  I don’t want to scroll through a ton of images of sick children saying “If I get 1,000,000 likes, my rich uncle/neighbor/Prince William will pay for my cancer treatment!”  I also don’t need to see a bunch of pictures of Jesus that say “Like if you love Jesus!  Keep scrolling if you hate him and love Satan!”

No.  Just … No.

So today I’ve gathered some memes that represent some of the things that I hate about Facebook.  (And yes, I realize I could simply delete my account, but, as I said, it’s not all bad.  I just have to limit the amount of time I spend on it … Otherwise, I might go crazy.)

I’ll start with the profile picture.  I think this is pretty accurate:


I said it before, but I’ll say it again … I have no idea why some people insist on typing up a bunch of gibberish to post on Facebook.  I have to wonder … Is this person drunk, dumb, lazy, or all of the above?:


Another issue I’ve already mentioned … The random sick child/religious/insert other random thing that’s supposed to make you feel guilty if you don’t “like” it images that pop up in my newsfeed.  Do people really believe this shit?:


Some people love to share everything.  Seriously.  I understand that you’re sick … If you want to share that, that’s cool.  But I don’t need to know that you’ve had explosive diarrhea for the last two days.  No one needs to know this (and this is coming from someone who tends to overshare!):


Then there’s the question of Facebook etiquette.  I’m sure most people with a Facebook have wondered about this at one point or another:


I will admit, though, that sometimes I like to watch the drama unfold on Facebook.  I find it particularly amusing because the majority of the people I’m friends with on Facebook are within 5 years of my age (so most people are between the ages of 24-34).  Adults.  Adults who, for whatever reason, sometimes feel the need to stir shit up.  While I always stay out of it, I won’t pretend I’m above busting out the popcorn and doing exactly what this meme says:


Following a Facebook fight, I’ll often see one of the people involved make some sort of passive aggressive jab at the other person.  Then they’ll (OMG!) delete that person from their friends list!  (Or at least threaten to do so.)  This is pretty much my reaction every time this happens (and sadly it happens on a fairly regular basis):


So yes, I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook.  This leads me to my final meme, the one that sums up how I often feel after wasting some time scrolling through my news feed (especially if none of my close friends or family have posted anything):



But It Was Not Your Fault, But Mine … And It Was Your Heart On The Line … I Really Fucked It Up This Time … Didn’t I, My Dear?

I know I said that Valentine’s Day isn’t a huge deal for Eric and I, but I couldn’t resist using this holiday (and I use that word loosely) as an excuse for posting hilarious memes.  It’s been a while since I last made a meme filled Friday Lounge post, so enjoy!


I’m a huge nerd obviously.


This cracked me up.


I often insert “bitch” into my statements and then blame it on my inner Jesse.


Maybe even more than leather jogging pants?


I don’t know much about Taylor Swift, but I do know that a lot of people say that every song is supposedly about a different guy … So this is probably pretty accurate.

If I Stay Here, Trouble Will Find Me

I have actually refrained from posting memes for a while (shocking, I know!), but I’m kind of busy this evening … So that’s what you’ll get.

Eric and I are having a much needed date night tonight.  In honor of this, I decided to try to find some funny date night related memes.  Here’s what I came up with:






These weren’t as good as some of the others I’ve found in the past, but they’ll have to do.

Legions Upon Legions Of Craftsmen Handmade My Feelings

I’ve been having a rough couple of weeks, so I wanted to make this week’s Friday Lounge post something light and funny.  I tend to post a lot of memes on Fridays anyway, but today I especially just don’t feel like writing a “real” post.  

As I’ve mentioned before, Eric and I love Gordon Ramsay.  As a tribute, I’ve decided to post several hilarious memes featuring Chef Ramsay.  Enjoy!






Trying Hard To Become Whatever They Are

Today’s Friday Lounge post will be brief.  My cousin is getting married tomorrow (I’m a bridesmaid), so I’m reserving my energy for that event.  I have to say that I definitely appreciate the fact that you can schedule posts on WordPress, though … That’s one less thing I have to worry about while I’m celebrating!

To commemorate this event, I have decided to post one (yes, only one) wedding related meme.  Perhaps I’ll post more as I get closer to my own wedding.


They Sure As Hell Have Made Some Foul Mistakes

I was originally going to do an actual entry this Friday (you know, something other than a post filled with memes).  But after dealing with an obnoxious cold for several days, I’ve decided to make a meme post dedicated to the shittiness that is being sick.

Awww poor guy … All he wants is to know he’s cared for:


I think we’ve all been here:


This is one of the most depressing things about having a cold:


This is exactly how I feel when I’m sick:


Though, really, this is probably more accurate:


This is sadly so true:


And, finally, this is how I feel right now:


One Day This Chalk Outline Will Circle This City

I feel like my last couple of posts have either been extremely long, extremely personal, or both.  Although I love pouring my heart into my writing, sometimes it’s nice to just write a fun, somewhat mindless blog post.  Or, you know, tell a story in memes!  

Everyone loves memes!


Because we love to


Of course, not everyone loves to laugh.


But even Grumpy Cat loves a good Ryan Gosling meme.


Like this one:


Ryan Gosling isn’t the only one who can teach us something, though.  This guy really makes you think!


Of course, too much philosophizing can have its drawbacks:


Maybe he should consider being like the T-Rex and just embrace life:


Though, of course, the T-Rex has his bad days too:




But sometimes he manages to prevail!


And he lived happily ever after.
