I feel like deleting social media every other day.
But it was Facebook that sent me flying off my glittery handlebars yesterday.
About 50 of my Facebook friends shared a video of a gaggle of young girls at a baseball game. Said girls were all taking selfies. My virtual friends shared this video with captions like, “THE HORROR!!!” “Death to selfies!!!!” “MAKE IT STOP FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!!”
K. *Breathe, Rachel, breathe* I had smoke coming out of my nostrils like a daggum dragon. I was so peeved. Let’s go over a couple of things. 1) They are cute, young girls hanging with their friends. 2) They are bored at a baseball game. If these girls WEREN’T taking selfies, I would question their mental health. LET THEM LIVE, PEOPLE! These chicks were taking selfies with their hotdogs & churros. I’m 100% certain those photos turned out like solid gold. I salute you ladies.
You girls are inspiring. I’ll be taking selfies with all of my snacks this weekend. Solidarity, sisters.

If they thought the girls were lame, taking selfies, did they stop to think how lame they themselves were, wasting their time commenting on this on FB? But, wait, worse is to come – the new App, Peeple
MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY! Equally lame to take the time to call them lame. Everyone is just lame! 😉
Yes, I heard about that app…. I’m scared for our world.
It is sad that people give so much attention to petty things. Haters gonna hate is the new social age mantra i guess…
For real. Haters ALWAYS gonna hate. Thanks for reading!
This looks like my kinda dinner. Thanks!
Hope you give it a try!
Love quinoa. Great recipe!
Thank ya, thank ya!
Loved this!!!! Made it tonight with out the red pepper (didn’t have one) but it was really good. I added braggs amino acid to it. Nice taste! This is going to be great for left overs this week as well. 🙂
Oh I’m so glad!! & easy to take for lunch, too 🙂 Thanks so much for reading & trying!!!
[sigh]… I remember the days of selfies before camera phones… It was much trickier and you needed much longer arms then… Good times 😀
Hahaha man those were the days…….
