A rant...

Alright peeps, today I am doing something I don't normally do on here.
I am ranting.
About Facebook.
Don't judge.

I am just getting sick of my ENTIRE news feed being all those stupid pictures people are supposed to like.

Like if you love your mother. Keep scrolling if you want her dead.
Like if you brush your teeth. Keep scrolling if you don't.
Come on people.

I have started to hide every person who likes a picture like that on my news feed. Which means I don't get half of the friends on my Facebook's updates because I have hidden them. It's just annoying people. I want to know what's going on in your life. I don't want to see some stupid picture you have liked.

That ends my rant for the day.
Sorry if I offended anyone.
But seriously, stop.

On a side note, toady is National Tequila Day.
Want some recipes for a good drink to celebrate?

• 2 oz. silver tequila (may also be called Blanco - Plata - White - Platinum; recipe suggests Milagro Silver)

• 4 slices cucumber
• One pinch cilantro
• One jalapeño
Muddle cucumbers and herbs, add remaining ingredients. Shake with ice and strain into rocks glass with ice. Garnish with cucumber slice. 

La Vida Dulce

(For those who love the sweet life. The recipe was originally part of Milagro Tequila's Tacos Evolved Tour, held at Tasting Table's Test Kitchen.)

• .75 oz. Lillet Blanc (or similar French apertif)
• .25 oz. Sauternes (or similar French sweet wine)

• 2 dashes orange bitters (recipe suggests Bitter Truth bitters or similar)

In an ice-filled mixing glass, add all ingredients and shake until well-blended. Strain into a chilled glass.

In a cocktail shaker, add ice, then all ingredients and shake. Serve over ice.

These were taken from here.

That is all.

Ugh. I agree. That is so annoying. Some of them are funny, but I have to scroll and scroll and scroll to get to any actual status updates.

I'm your newest followers!

I know! I hate that my entire news feed is nothing but those pictures! I agree, some are funny, but most are just annoying! Ha!

Sonya said...

Agreed! It's about as bad a chain letters! I also hate the survey thing that you click if you want to stay on someone's friend list.

Becca said...

Yes I hate both of those! And I totally agree about the chain letter comparison! They are all just so annoying!

I completely agree! I'm not very interested in seeing every single picture someone on my friends list liked! I especially don't enjoy being told to 'like' a picture or status to prove a point that's already obvious!
