In Other News...

Everyone on my Facebook and Twitter are buzzing about last night's debate. I've always been a girl with a love for politics. It's just fascinating to me and of course I'm a history buff so they go hand-in-hand. However, the older I get the more that people's hateful political opinions really just turn me off. I don't care who you vote for...I still love you no matter what. But I do care when you try and and shove your one sided half truths down my throat because you "know" you're right. You absolutely have the right to your opinion - more power to you! But it's not fair to be hateful with your comments. So please just lay off the hate....it's really not attractive.
 
So in other news....
 
Skye has been sucked into The Walking Dead phenomenon. And last night he suckered me into watching 4 episodes with him. We skipped going to the gym together - which we rarely get to do - to watch this show. I didn't get it the lure of the show. I mean all zombie movies/shows seem the same to me. But yep, now I want to know what happens and I'm sure we will add another show to our DVR list. We are only on episode 3 of Season 2 so PLEASE no spoilers.  Are you on the Walking Dead bandwagon yet?

I am on the bandwagon, but the only characters I don't hate are the zombies. I can't stand any of the people. haha and I get all annoying when I watch it with my husband and he gets mad at me. haha

i'm afraid to watch The Walking Dead because i'm a scaredy cat, lol.

and seriously this whole politics thing is a bit crazy. i can't wait till it's all over because i feel like if it is any longer i am going to have to drop a few friends, lol.

I am SO over this election! I've gotten in a few arguments with people after they've tried to tell me they're right. I'm just tired of ignorance!

I agree 100% with your political comments. Having an opinion is one thing, but trying to force it upon others is crossing the line. That's when I want to back-hand people. ;)

Walking Dead is soooo good. And it gets so much better, so get ready!

xo,

My bf watches this show every Sunday night... I usually start out watching it with him then go on and do more important life things like pinning things on Pinterest. :)

Haha, the political craziness was my blog topic for the day too. I just don't get it.

I agree with your take on MEAN political views! I think everyone has a right to their opinion and it's great that you're passionate about it- but understand that there is always going to be 2 sides to politicals and one is not "right" and one is not "wrong"

Walking Dead is one of the few shows we haven't gotten sucked into but I have a feeling we'll start watching it soon. We just got all caught up on Homeland- have you watched that? it's AMAZING

1. yes, totally agree with you about politics. i know who i'm voting for. you know who you're voting for. neither of us is going to change the other person's mind. just go vote - that's all that matters!!

2. zombies kind of freak me out. an ex used to try to make me watch this show, and i said heeeeeeck no, but thanks for asking. ;)

Sarah said...

Dude.. Walking Dead is the best ever. Hubby and I watched the first season on itunes in like one night. It's hard to believe, but it just keeps getting better!

JP Lord said...

I've realized that (especially with this election year) that political views are like penis' - it's great that you have one, but please don't shove it in my face.
Also I love the walking dead! I hate zombies and I have nightmares after. every. single. episode - but I'm addicted and watch it weekly. It just keeps getting better!
Make sure to stop by and check out my giveaway - it's good one!!!

How and why did I never jump on the Walking Dead trend? Everyone seems to love it! I too don't care who everyone votes for either, in fact, I don't think I am ...did I say that aloud? haha

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

My favorite political opinions are the ones with so many typos and grammatical errors. As much as I appreciate politics, I can't wait until this election is over and everyone can go back to normal (kind of...)

And the Walking Dead. Oh, man. I haven't started season 3 yet. But I do love that show so much!

Laura Darling said...

I agree with you about the debates and politics in general. I like to watch the debates and read the news coverage to be informed, but I couldn't care less about the political views of people I had a few college classes with. In a way, i can't wait for election season to be over!

Taylor @ Goings on in Texas said...

Agreed with the political comments.

And Walking Dead...no.thank.you...it however is my hubby's "show" so of course he had to watch an episode at midnight on Sunday night and the Zombie sounds nearly gave me nightmares and I wasn't even watching!! I was plugging my ears trying to go to sleep! lol

Holly said...

I am totally with you about the hateful, one-sided, self-righteous political opinions! YUCK! I'm over it.
