you know what i hate? censorship

i hate censorship

You know what I hate?  Censorship.  You know where you’re about to see/hear/write something absolutely brilliant/groundbreaking/risqué and some smart-butt editor toes the party line editing out all the good parts and stuffing it with a big dose of bland?  And how pray tell does this apply to travel or travel editors? Well, for a start [removed for breaking content guidelines – Ed.] and that's just the beginning.

you know what i hate? the media

i hate media

Why? Because I never know what really is going on and what I glean from reports tends never to be entirely accurate.

you know what i hate? congee

i hate congee

You know what I hate about about travelling?  Congee.  It’s slimy and gross and in the middle of a transatlantic flight to Southeast Asia, I made the mistake of assuming it was oatmeal porridge.  Tasted like a big bowl of cold vomit.

you know what i hate? phobias  

i hate phobias

Why? Because they seriously restrict what you’re going to do, where you’re going to go, what you’re going to try and essentially how much fun you’re gonna have. As I’m afflicted with about, oh, I don’t know… all of them, generally my trips suck. On the upside, it helps me write this blog.

you know what i hate? sleeping

i hate sleeping

Because I can’t.  I can’t sleep on planes, I can’t sleep on buses, I can’t sleep in cars, I can’t sleep in tents and it doesn’t matter how big and comfy the hotel bed, I can’t sleep in that, either.

I hate instructions because they’re a big waste-o-time. No one is listening.

you know what i hate? waiting

i hate waiting

Why am I always waiting?  I wait for my wife, I wait for a cab, I wait in traffic and then I wait at the airport.  I wait in line at check-in, at immigration, at the gate and then I wait on the plane.  The flight itself could be considered a form of waiting, as I wait to arrive.  When I arrive, I wait at customs, I wait for my bags, I wait for a cab and then I wait in traffic again.  It’s like a vicious circle of procrastination.

you know what i hate? actors 

i hate actors

Actors.  They just have to make their movies in kickass locales.  Which leads to exposure, which leads to tour operators, which leads to way to many tourists.  So that amazing beach which used to be so pristine, is now absolutely cluttered and crowded with boats and tourists who want to sit on the same site where Leo made out with some nameless girl in that lame movie about nothing!

you know what i hate? traveling

i hate expensive traveling

Worldwide Economic Meltdowns – only because they don’t come around more often.  Like Haley’s Comet, they seem to appear only once or twice in a lifetime.  Which sucks, because they usually bring a wicked array of travel deals, (the meltdowns, not the comet… as far as I know).

you know what i hate? complaints

i hate complaints

And yes, I do understand the meaning of irony. The difference is, I do my cantankerous ramblings online, not in person, at the time an injustice occurs. I internalize it, stew over it and certainly will die of a massive aneurysm as my skull explodes towards the sky in a rage-filled spectacular.
