I'm sorry... really I'm sorry.

I'm sorry I whine so much. I'm sorry I'm depressed. I'm sorry I have mood swings...

I thought a lot this weekend about how much I have to be thankful for. I have a good job which I enjoy the vast majority of the time and which will get me started on a career I'm good at, a second job which is fun and gives me a great discount, three best friends that I'd take a bullet for and count it a blessing, many other people who I am lucky to know and who I like to think care about me a little bit, a family I love that loves me back despite not especially understanding me, health insurance, a nice place to live without a bitch roommate, kind landlords, an adorable part-time cat that licks my face and curls up with me, lots and lots of crap which I don't need but like nonetheless, a parking pass so I don't have to sit at work till the lot attendant goes home, a sick sense of humor which occasionally makes people laugh, more freedom than the vast majority of people on earth past or present, a brain which I can put to some use, an excellent education, a chance to rise again in the city of the phoenix, food on my table and shoes on my feet. (It's a country song.)

I don't even know who I'm apologizing to...

How fucking far can you abdicate responsibility?!

"The woman caught on videotape repeatedly striking her 4-year-old daughter in the rear of a sport utility vehicle is due in court this afternoon. Despite admitting the beating and saying there was 'no excuse' for it, she's expected to plead not guilty to felony child battery charges."

Is the state of society so bad that this moron thinks she can admit to a heinous crime on NATIONAL FUCKING TELEVISION and STILL claim she is innocent in a court of law?
