17 things I still don’t get in 2013, no matter how hard I try

  1. Lean in
  2. Ryan Gosling
  3. James Franco
  4. People who still complain about their huge inbox
  5. The not very subtle practice of putting random numbers in headlines
  6. People who need to ask why Obama’s comment about Kamala Harris is offensive to women.
  7. Otherkin (including this man who wants to become a pad)
  8. That Reasons My Son is Crying is funny to some people (this kid is a turd)
  9. The sheer volume of articles about privileged/successful people telling folks to ‘follow your dreams’
  10. People who mail Luclyn prezzies and money so they too can ‘follow their dreams’
  11. Emoticons, gifs and Tumblr
  12. People who respectfully call her Baroness or Lady Thatcher
  13. So-called journalists who quote Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Miranda Kerr etc with reference to feminism
  14. Stock photos
  15. People who still read The Age – myself included
  16. Paying $18 or more for: hamburger/cocktail/ cold-drip coffee from a civet’s arsehole/tin of sardines with one pickle and two thin-cut bits of bread/plate of pasta or noodles/ whiskey/anything described as ‘Gangnam Style’ because of addition of kimchi/milkshake etc.
  17. The name ‘JWoww’

I could go on…

  1. Why is the crying kid a turd? I could easily do a photomontage of your beloved niece crying for similarly incomprehensible reasons. Particularly today.

  2. Boo thank you for introducing me to some particularly stomach-churning crap that I would otherwise never had known existed (Lean In? Reasons my Son is Crying?) and gone on to lead an oblivious, much happier life.
