First World Problems

It’s time for the next installment of this series, wherein I complain about first world problems — AKA things I should be grateful I have access to but annoy me anyway. 

Today’s topic: Fantasy Football.

You may recall my announcement last year, just before Team Honey Boo Boo careened off the tracks into a fury of fantasy football failure.

I have an even bigger problem this year, though. I don’t have a league.

It’s been brought to my attention that my former commish is not interested in taking money from people who no longer live in Florida.

Excuse me — rather, he’s only allowing ONE person from out of state to play and the rest of us are left leagueless.

I know what a pain it is to have people Skype in and draft.
I get it. Really, I do.
Prove it, you say?
Because I sat through it last year for ONE person.

My issue is: If they’re letting that same ONE person draft from afar, then what’s the big deal with having a few more do it? Hell, put my team on Autodraft (it’ll probably be better for us all that way).

But don’t take it away for people who pay up (on time, mind you) each season.

Apparently, leaving Floriduh is FROWNED UPON IN THIS ESTABLISHMENT!*

WO: Weekly Obsessions

In addition to it being Halloween (and a top-three holiday in my book), it’s also my 70th WO post — I’m ready to paaaar-taaaay!

So … Happy Halloween, y’all. I can say that because, as you see, I dressed as America’s favorite mush-mouthed Toddler & Tiara. Sadly, I couldn’t find anyone who’d come with me as The Human Thumb (Mama June), but I did find enough go-go juice to keep me hopped up on sugar for hours.

And now for a Halloween-inspired week of obsessions:

  1. TMNT Carving: Forget the pumpkins this year and carve watermelons, instead. These enviable renditions of Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael will make any home a happy one.
  2. Frosted Candy Bar Stuffed Cookie Cups: Take those leftover fun-size candy bars (assuming they’ve survived) and bake up some gooey goodies. Think I’m the devil for sharing these? At least I didn’t send you here.
  3. Throwback Costumes: Little kids won’t know any different whether they’re a ladybug or something more creative, so why not dress them up like a Golden Girl or the “Dumb & Dumber” guys?
  4. “Monster Mash”: Because it’s the quintessential Halloween song and I said so.

 

Happy Haunting — y’all better redneckognize!
