Trends to rant about

It's Monday morning!  Let's start the week off right, with a rant!  I'm just gonna put it out there - and a big, blanket "no offense" apology for what I'm about to say:

1. What. Is. With. All. The. MUSTACHES? It's weird. I don't like seeing them everywhere. You know, those Pringles-guy-looking ones.  I have a feeling it is somehow linked to the equally strange "Steampunk" thing...don't even get me started on that. 

A quick search on Etsy resulted in this:
I'm uncomfortable.

2. Surely I can't be the only one who's tired of seeing the "Keep Calm and (fill in the blank) On" thing...everywhere? Maybe it's just me.  It's a pretty graphic; it just doesn't speak to me, that's all.  Keep Calm and Tennis On.  That's one I saw yesterday.  "Tennis" isn't even a verb!  Knit On.  Sew On.  Blog On.   Huh?  Even the ones that are verbs...just...just stop already.  Enough!!!

Now here's one I do like...
Spoofs are funny.

3. I love fabric flowers as much as the next person, I really do.  But if I see one more "fabric flower tutorial," I think my eyeballs might fall out. 

4. I realize that it's supposedly over, but...why is/was/is/was bacon such a fad?  Why?  I read something somewhere where the author made a comment like, "don't pretend to like bacon just because you want to sound cool" and I thought it was a joke.  Then I realized that bacon is somehow..."in."  It's bacon.  I realize I'm showing myself to be completely un-hip and out of it...but I really don't get it.  Bacon???
It's bacon.  Get over it.
 OK, so I guess that's it for now.  I feel much better having gotten all that off my chest.  Have I missed anything? 


  1. I AGREE on all the above points!

  2. What, you don't like deep fried chocolate-covered bacon?? lol, just kidding. I totally agree with you on each and every one of these.

  3. Hahaha! You are hilarious! The bacon thing in hilarious. Chocolate covered bacon!? i just don't get it. I love salty and sweet, but that just crosses a line. And the keep calm and _________ on kills me. What does that even mean!? Add one more thing to your plate so you REALLY don't feel calm? I don't get it.

  4. That post made me laugh! Found you through Jen's Highs and Lows.

  5. Oh girlfriend, we are cut from the same painters' dropcloth :-) I'm SO with you on all of these!
