A “GILT”-y PLEASURE!!

This is big news people! A marriage is happening here, and I am so HAPPY to spread the JOYOUS news!

My favorite shopping site ever, www.GILT.com, which offers  THE BEST designer deals, the HOTTEST home furnishings, and even AMAZING destinations at FRACTIONS of the cost, is doing something I never dreamed of:

THE SEARCH FOR THE “UGLIEST SHOES IN AMERICA” CONTEST!!!!!! As stated by GILT’s press release: “If it’s true that you can learn alot about a man by his shoes, then America’s men are in a state of crisis”.

I COULDN’T AGREE MORE! Of course I try to find the beauty in everyone; their style, confidence, self expression…. but most often, it’s just TOO DAMN UGLY OUT THERE! It’s like GILT and I just got MARRIED! Oh, the JOY of Loving to hate something ugly…

This is Gilt MAN’s first contest, and is open to EVERYONE for participation! To enter: send a picture of the UGLIEST shoes you can find for a chance to win $1,000 from Gilt MAN to update the wardrobe! Below are some additional details on how the contest works.

“Retail wedding trend leads to I do’s at T.J. Maxx, Taco Bell – USATODAY.com” REALLY????!?!?!?!?!!?!

a

As a recently married man, I am more appreciative of married couples, and the strength and commitment they give to each other, to move forward in their lives together. Even watching “Bethanny Getting Married” made me shed tears, because I know what it’s like to have a wedding day, and the special moment shared between 2 people in love: it’s undescribable and unforgettable.

HOWEVER:  I came across this internet “News Post” and GAGGED. PLEASE READ THE “ARTICLE” BELOW LINKED IN THIS POST… BUT BEWARE OF THE NAUSEA THAT MIGHT SET IN!

Retail wedding trend leads to I do’s at T.J. Maxx, Taco Bell – USATODAY.com.

WT….F??? I have officially LOST IT. I cant even READ this article, it drives me so CRAZY!!! WHO THE HELL IS DOING THIS??????? I don’t know ANYONE who would do this… and if I did, I would no longer know them!!!

THIS “TREND????” THIS IS NOT A TREND! THIS IS WHITE TRASH TO THE MAXXXXXXXX!!!! (get it…i couldn’t help myself)… i mean to quote this Stupid Bride, “The one constant in my life, no matter what, has always been T.J. Maxx,” Satayut, a self-proclaimed “Maxxinista,” says.

Then there’s the “executive editor” at Theknot.com saying, “If this came up 15 years ago it would not have been as readily accepted”.

WAKE UP IDIOT!!! IT’S STILL NOT ACCEPTED!!!! THE ONLY PEOPLE DOING IT ARE DISGUSTING!!!!! DO YOU THINK SHE HAS FRIENDS WHO ARE DOING THIS?… She should be FIRED for allowing an article to even hit the publics eye, and ESPECIALLY MINE!!!  GOD I WANNA SLAP SOMEBODY!!!!

As i read even more of this PAINFUL article to provide ammo for this post, my stomach is churning… here are a couple more winning standouts:

“Home Depot doesn’t charge to hold weddings in their stores, adding that most of the materials used — like orange buckets and plywood for pews — can be put back on the shelves after the ceremony.”

I AM D.Y.I.N.G…… ORANGE BUCKETS AND PLYWOOD FOR PEWS?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!??!!?!??!?!?!?!!!?!?!?!?

“According to Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch, the restaurant typically hosts about one wedding per year and doesn’t charge for the ceremonies.”

SINCE WHEN DOES TACO BELL CONSTITUTE BEING A RESTAURANT?!?!?!?!??!!?!!!?!??!?!!?!?!

I think i’m going to be sick…..

READERS: I can’t wait for your comments…. and I don’t want to hear: “people should do what they want”, “it’s their day”, or “it’s their choice to do what they want, they’re in love”, etc… SPARE ME THE DISGUST. THIS IS NOT OK. THIS SHOWS ME THAT THE ACT OF GETTING MARRIED IS A JOKE, and it is ANYTHING BUT!
