DECEMBER THREE – Tough Titty Tuesday – On the menu

I haven’t done a TTT in sooooo long! I really should do more of these because there is absolutely no lack of people bitching and moaning about total bullshit.

This week’s Tough Titty Tuesday award goes tooooooooo….
Gabrielle Union!!!!
I seriously had to look this person up because I didn’t have a clue who the hell she was. I’d seen her face but I thought she was just another one of those “famous for being famous” morons.
I guess she’s an actress. Who knew.

Most recently she’s been a judge on the show America’s Got Talent.
Jay Leno a COMEDIAN was also a judge on this show.
Apparently, Gabrielle Union wasn’t aware of the fact that sometimes comedians do these little things called JOKES and she was…
All together boys and girls…
OFFENDED!!!!

Via People magazine here’s the atrocity committed by that damn racist Jay Leno!
(That too is a joke, Jay Leno is not a racist.)

“According to Variety, Leno allegedly joked about a painting on the wall that featured Simon Cowell — who serves as a judge and executive producer — surrounded by his dogs. Sources on the series told the outlet he joked the dogs looked like something one would find “on the menu at a Korean restaurant,”alluding to the stereotype that all Asian people eat dog meat.”

Yeah, I can see where that “alludes” to ALL Asian people eating dog.
According to this ad that’s not even true!
They eat cats too!!!
Hey Gabrielle!
TOUGH TITTY!!

Happy Tough Titty Tuesday everyone!!!
Raise your hand if you’re offended by all of these so-called offenses.
Much like they’re bringing back paper straws and paper bags, they need to bring back thick skin, a spine, and most of all a sense of humor!

Here’s hoping your TTT is filled with lots n’ lots of laughter.

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be well.

#3 – TOUGH TITTY TUESDAY – THE DIVA TAKES A DIVE

TOUGH TITTY TUESAY2017-divider-line-blue-icyAnd the first ‘Tough Titty ‘ of the New Year goes to……
MARIAH CAREY!
Omg. I don’t know how many of you watched this train wreck on ‘Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve’ but holy shit. I don’t think I’ve ever been more embarrassed for someone and I challenge any of you to watch/re-watch this “performance” without cringing. This was just painful.And now of course, the blame game ensues. Mariah thinks she was sabotaged and the show is claiming it was just an audio/technical issue. Personally, I highly doubt that a network is going to sabotage it’s own televised special. What would be the point in that?

Either way. Mariah Carey should have been waaaay more professional than what she was. She acted like a spoiled toddler throwing a tantrum on stage and it really did nothing for her other than to make her appear as a diva “has been.”

Happy ‘Tough Titty Tuesday’ Mariah. Suck it up buttercup and in your own Twitter tweety words, “Shit happens.”
2017-divider-line-blue-icyMore snow, 2″-5″, and then single digit temps are on the way for us here which means more crafting is on the way for me. Yay! I love it when the weather cooperates like that.
I hope you’re staying warm n’ cosy wherever you are, unless you’re somewhere with lots of warmth n’ sunshine, in which case, I say enjoy!

It’s ‘Tough Titty Tuesday’ folks!
Who made your ‘Tough Titty’ list this week??

TOUGH TITTY TUESDAY – SERIOUSLY?

TOUGH TITTY TUESAYHappy November folks!
This “Tough Titty Tuesday” is brought to you by…
divider-fall-leavesSeriously. I think people just go out of their way to look for shit to be offended by.
Apparently, actress Hillary Duff and her boyfriend – whoever he is – offended “the masses” with their Halloween costumes.
Are YOU ready to be offended??
“Many thought the costumes were racially insensitive.”
Are you fucking kidding me right now???
Racially insensitive?
This is by far my most unbelievable “Tough Titty” to date!

You can read all about Hillary’s “offensive” costume choices here.
Of course being in the land of “Hollyweird” and all things liberal and politically correct, Hillary and her boyfriend did something I would never have fucking done.
They apologized.
Hillary Duff said, “I’m SO sorry… It wasn’t properly thought through.”
Properly thought through? It’s an Indian and a pilgrim!

THIS is offensive people! Be fucking offended by THIS!!
divider-fall-leavesI’m Italian.
Here’s a dog dressed as spaghetti and meatballs.

Here’s a guy dressed like a piece of pizza.

Here’s a whole family dressed like pizza!

My mom is German, French, Irish AND Indian (Pocahontas)
costumes-tough-titty-tuesdayNOT OFFENDED, NOT OFFENDED, NOT OFFENDED, NOT FUCKING OFFENDED!
divider-fall-leavesNo surprise this week’s “Tough Titty” shout out goes to all of the dumbasses sitting around waiting to be offended by something.
divider-fall-leavesIt’s been a lit’l quiet in my corner of the world.
Busy but quiet.
Today was day 1 of a new schedule for me. In bed at 9pm and up at 4am.
Quite a change for a night owl who often times didn’t go to bed until 4am. This new schedule is supposed to increase productivity and I have to say, it has done that. At least for today…

We had zero trick or treaters last night. But I was ready!
What’s been happening with all of you??
Did you do anything spooktacular for Halloween??
How many trick or treaters did you have?
The kids seem to be fewer and fewer with each passing year.
I don’t get it. If I could still trick or treat, I would!

Happy November 1st my friends.
Take a look around. There is much to be offended about thankful for.

TOUGH TITTY TUESDAY – DAMNED IF YOU DO

TOUGH TITTY TUESAYToday’s ‘Tough Titty Tuesday’ features me.
I’m saying “tough titty” to myself.
Here’s why.
***I’m sick of this whole presidential thing.

***I’m sick of people judging me on my political choices. I don’t slam them for theirs. In fact, I couldn’t care less who everyone else is voting for. Or not voting for. Voting is a privilege in this country and I plan on taking advantage of it.

***I will NOT apologize for voting for Trump.

***Voting for Trump does NOT make me –
Ignorant.
Uninformed.
Trailer trash.
An inbred Jed cuz fucker.
A racist.
Or someone who is against women and trying to throw this country back 100 years.
I know what Hillary Clinton is bringing to the table. I’ve watched it for the last 8 years.
I’ll roll the dice with Trump.

***I saw people on FB bitching that there wasn’t a “Pray for Haiti” FB profile pic.
For fuck sake.
There’s an Asian aisle at the grocery store and a Mexican aisle too. I’m Italian. I’m not bitching about not having my own fucking grocery aisle.
Nobody said life was fair.
Not everybody gets a profile pic. Not everybody gets their own grocery store aisle.
Not everybody gets a trophy.

***I read a headline today that said some guy threw his mother out a window and then jumped down to beat her to death.
What the fuck is wrong with people???

***I’m sick of family members being assholes.

***I come to at least three, 4-way stops every day. Why don’t people know how this works???

***Why do the stores have to rush us thru every fucking holiday??? Can we get thru one without the rest of the shit being brought out?
Makes me want to become a Jehovah’s Witness. No celebrations. Not even your fucking birthday.

I could go on and on but ya’ know what?
Tough Titty to me because there isn’t a fucking thing I can do about any of this.
People are going to be jerks. Can’t change that.
What on this list can I change?
Pertaining to other people, not much.

Pertaining to myself.
This –
***Stop or cut down on reading/watching the news.
***Get rid of the toxic people in my life. – This is happening.
Most importantly –
***DON’T TAKE ANY OF THIS SHIT PERSONALLY.
I’m working on that one but you really almost have to rip your emotions and common sense from your heart and brain and walk thru life in a bubble being void of being human because inevitably, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
***When the going gets tough say “fuck off” more often. Altho I can’t imagine saying it anymore than I already do.
So. This was a lit’l different take on ‘Tough Titty Tuesday,’ huh?
Sorry folks. Sometimes it is all about me.

Happy ‘Tough Titty Tuesday.’ Do whatever makes you happy and if some jerk crosses your path, tell ’em fuck off. It helps.

TOUGH TITTY TUESDAY – CALM DOWN BABS

TOUGH TITTY TUESAYbar dotsbar dotsYa’ know. Some people would bitch if they were hung with a new rope.
Apparently, Barbra Streisand decided that there wasn’t enough important shit going on in the world. She had to pick a fight with Siri.
Siri? A computerized assistant? Yep. That’s the one.
For those of you who aren’t up on who Siri is and what she does, you can read about it here.
Siri is an Apple app that talks to you, much like your GPS in your vehicle.
So ‘ol Babs doesn’t like the way Siri says her name.
(Anybody have a tissue?)
Seriously. Not even kidding. A computerized, robotic assistant on your phone or iPad and Barbra Streisand is bitching about her.
                     (Picture stolen from CNN.money.com)bar dotsLong story short. – And you can read the full story over at CNN Money. – Barbra Streisand does what any one of us would do when we don’t like the way Siri says our name. She calls the head of Apple and bitches to him about it and pussy that he is, he tells her he’ll get right on it and make sure that Siri – not a real human being folks – pronounces Barbra’s name correctly by the end of Sept.
Are you fucking kidding me?
If only she’d used her “star power” to call the governor of Louisianna to find out how big of a check she should tell Siri to write out to help the flood victims!
But no. Clearly, it’s more important that some computerized assistant pronounce her name correctly.
bar dotsIf I were the head of Apple and ‘ol Babs called me to bitch about something so incredibly trivial. Guess what I’d be telling her???
That’s right – TOUGH TITTY BABS!

Apparently, you do Babs otherwise, you wouldn’t be bitching about Siri.

And…
**Sew!

We’re getting a break from the triple-digit heat. Only in the 80’s all week and that’s a huge relief. If it’s not too smoky I’ll take lit’l Miss Luci up to the trails tomorrow morning. She got groomed today and it wiped her out.
bar dotsHappy ‘Tough Titty Tuesday’ folks!
If you could call up the head of any company and bitch, who would it be and why?
I’d call McDonald’s because ya’ know what? I think they’ve been in business long enough that they could have figured out how to make a lid for their flippin’ cups that doesn’t cause the entire drink to pour down the front of your shirt every time you try to take a sip!

TOUGH TITTY TUESDAY – It’s Okay To Laugh, Really It Is..

TOUGH TITTY TUESAYI’m with ya’ Mr. Eastwood!
Our society has become so tight-assed that EVERY move, comment, thought, photo, etc. must be placed under a microscope of  those who decide what is and/or what isn’t, “politically correct,” funny or socially acceptable.Someone should write a book. In fact, write a few of ’em.
You know, like this guy.

Here are some suggestions –
Wouldn’t this make life so much easier?
We’d all be on the same page.
Void of intelligence, choice, personality and seemingly, most important, void of a sense of humor.
Recently, comedienne – keyword, comedienne – Ellen DeGeneres posted this pic of her and her friend, Gold medalist Olympian, Usain Bolt.
When I saw this pic my first thought was, “Wow, no kidding.” My mind did not immediately go to anything racist or degrading or unjust. I saw the humor. The humor intended by the comedienne, Ellen Degeneres.
Which, FYI, I’m pretty sure she probably ran this photo by her friend, Usain Bolt, before she posted it.
The backlash and comments that ensued because of this photo are mind-boggling.
TO THE COMMENTERS AND THOSE “POLITICALLY CORRECT” ASSHOLES:
Tough Titty!
This is a funny pic of two friends and nothing more. If I had a friend that fast, black, white, purple or green, I’d wanna’ be piggybacking him around too!
Side Note: If you have a Twitter account you can view the tweet and all comments, here.
If not, CNN has a post, here.

What say ye’ my good people? Is this photo offensive, racist, politically incorrect??
Or did you, like me, just see the humor.
My plans for this “Tough Titty Tuesday” include NOT leaving my house because of the triple digit heat. I will most likely be sewing, reading and catching up on my ‘CSI’ seasons on Hulu and then switching over to HBO Now to finish up season #6 of ‘Game of Thrones.’
What’s on tap for your ‘T.T.T?’
Stay cool or warm, and to my peeps in the south, stay dry and safe!
And remember to laugh a little. It’s okay. Really it is.

TOUGH TITTY TUESDAY – MCDONALD’S

TOUGH TITTY TUESAYApparently McDonald’s, after a bazillion years on the planet, has now decided to make healthier food?
Yeah, I know. They’ve been doing it gradually over the years with the addition of salads on the menu and apples in the Happy Meals, oatmeal in the morning but now? Now they’re messin’ with the McNuggets.
Back off McDonald’s. Them’s fightin’ words.

According to CNN Money, “…as of Monday it’s chicken nuggets and several breakfast menu items no longer have artificial preservatives. And McDonald’s plans to eliminate high fructose corn syrup from all its hamburger buns by the end of August.”
CNN goes on to say, “Artificial ingredients have been targeted by consumer advocacy and regulatory groups raising flags about health risks.”
SERIOUSLY?
Is there somebody on the planet that didn’t know this???
NOBODY goes to McDonald’s or any other fast food joint because they’re fucking healthy. They go because it’s disgustingly loaded with all of those artificial ingredients and grease and sodium and anything else that makes fast food taste so delicious.

TO MCDONALD’S – Stop fucking with the food. Ya’ know you can get a 10 pc. nugget at ‘Burger King’ for a buck 49 AND they added ‘Mac n’ Cheetos’ to their menu.
They don’t give a shit about health risks.

TO THE HEALTH NUTSTough Titty!
Eat someplace else!
I’m not big on fast food but it’s certainly convenient when you’re out late and you don’t feel like going home to cook. Or, hey, we all get those cravings for whatever fast food we happen to like best. Lately, Burger King nuggets have been my “go to” fast food choice. They taste way better than McDonald’s McNuggets and you get more bang for your buck. I don’t like Burger King’s drinks tho so I’ll head down the road to McDonald’s and grab a sweet tea or stop at a gas station and get a bottle of water.
SIDE NOTE:  If you haven’t tried the ‘Mac n’ Cheetos’ at Burger King, you need to. They’re yummy.

What’s your favorite fast food joint? Whatta’ ya’ get?
You know I’m a nosey bitch so I wanna’ know.Happy “Tough Titty Tuesday! What’s going on in your lives today that makes you wanna’ shout TOUGH TITTY!feather
