i really hate...

...people who describe themselves, first and foremost, as "artists." No, you are a dog walker and like to throw paint around/play bass guitar/not eat for three days in your free time. Or, you actually make a living doing something creative and then you are a designer/illustrator/synchronized swimmer/whatever. A couple years ago I went on a date with a painter dude (and full-time flower shop worker) who used his self-described "artist" status in reference to everything. I would mention my affinity for spinach and mushroom pizza, and he would say, "Well, as an artist, I prefer pepperoni." Vomit. Needless to say, as an artist, he did not get laid that night. (Though maybe if he'd been hotter...)

Ah well, at least the rampant use of the "artist" descriptor makes it much easier for me to weed through potential roommates on Craigslist.

And now, as a waitress, I am going to bed because I'm working 12 shifts in the next 12 days.

Worse still are people who describe themselves as 'crazy'. Ugh.

"Well, as an artist, I prefer pepperoni."

Man, that's hysterical. It really takes some guts to be that pretentious.

I only describe myself as an artist when it comes to sexualizing the ladies.

i'm not sure if the pepperoni line was actually said, since i was downing free martinis to entertain myself, but it was actually that bad. god i love people.

I want it to be true, therefore I will believe it to be true.

If I ever go on a really bad date, I think I will break out that line.
