So here's a list of some things I couldn't care less about.

Note that I said couldn't instead of could. People who say I could care less about whatever are idiots - unless they're actually trying to say that they do care about whatever it is.

As with all my lists, this one is not meant to be all-inclusive.

1. Celebrity Trials
O.J. Simpson. Michael Jackson. Robert Blake. I just don't fucking care. I mean, I wish The Juice and Baretta would refrain from murdering people, and I wish that Jacko could resist his urge to suck tiny cocks, but I just don't have the need to be bombarded with news of these trials like the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. I guess I should count the Petersen trial here too. Sure it's sad that a pretty pregnant woman got murdered, but just how does that affect me?
2. The NCAA Tournament
The only televised sport I even remotely give a shit about is professional baseball, and my enthusiasm for even that has waned quite a bit since I left Seattle. Just play the damn games and, in the end, tell us who won. Even then, I still won't care, but when a local team loses I do find it pretty amusing because everybody at work goes into a funk.
3. Paris Hilton
Okay, so she's rich, I get that. And she's got nice tits. Whoopee. There are a zillion other rich women with nice tits out there. Many of them also *gasp* have sex with their boyfriends. What's the big deal with her sex tape, and furthermore, why is she on my TV every time I turn it on?

Those are just the things that popped into my head as I sat down to type this entry. There are countless more. I care about things that affect me and the people I love. I couldn't care less (note: proper usage again) about Martha Stewart getting richer, or about that one chick that just had her feeding tube removed, or about congressional subpoenas issued to steroid-ridden athletes.

I'm just selfish that way.

If you haven't left a comment here before, you may need to be approved before your comment will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
