2. People who bring tuna salad sandwiches to work. First of all, I hate tuna. I think it's pretty disgusting, so obviously I'm already offended and confused by it. But even so, I think anyone and everyone must hate it when their co-worker or classmate pulls out their lunch and inside there is a stinky, make you want to vomit, tuna sandwich in there. The smell, whether you like tuna or not, is just so damn potent. It can overpower an entire office or classroom and linger there all goddamn day. Is that fair to the people around you? Hell no. So eat your stinky-ass sandwiches at home.
3. Why my herbs won't grow. My garden is doing pretty awesome, as you'll see later this week, but for some reason, my herbs just won't grow. The worst part about their lack of growing power is that I've planted them TWICE. The first time, I waited three weeks for something to spring through the soil, but nothing happened. So I waited one more week and then decided to plant again. It's been two and a half weeks since then and still nothing has popped up. I just don't get it. They're being watered regularly and they have tons of sunshine. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong, and, to be honest, I'm getting discouraged.
4. Why there's already a new Spiderman and why Mary Jane is suddenly blonde. OK, I get that it's been 10 years since Tobey Maguire made his first appearance as Spiderman, but really, 10 years isn't that long. It's just too soon to start from the beginning again. And not only that, it's totally uncalled for to ruin Mary Jane by making her blonde. Don't get me wrong, I think Emma Stone is, like, the coolest, but dammit, she should be a redhead. There are enough blondes in the world. I get that we're supposed to see them as superior or whatever, but honestly, they're not. Redheads are just as hot, as are brunettes. So stick with the original, please.
UPDATE: I have just been informed by my partner-in-fashion Jill that Emma Stone isn't actually Mary Jane. Sorry for misleading all of you into believing she's an imposter. And thanks to Jill for catching my error. I guess I should watch the movie before I judge it, eh!? Ah, you live and you learn.
5. How sunscreen can be sweatproof. Does sweatproof mean the sunscreen is clogging all of your pores and forcing you to stay uber hot because you're body is unable to sweat? Is that not a disgusting and somewhat unsafe thought? It seems to me that just can't be healthy. When I was in the grocery store buying my first bottle of SPF 45 sunscreen on the weekend, I had the option of sweatproof and waterproof or just waterproof. The thought of sweating on the inside made me go with straight up waterproof. (I'm happy to report I made it through two trips to the lake without a burn. Hooray for sunscreen!)
Well folks, that's all for today. You can find the first three "Things I don't understand" posts here, here and here.
