Why I Have No Street Cred

1. I like my punk poppy - not crusty.  (When I like it all)

2. I don't wear nearly enough eyeliner.

3. I don't want to drink Strongbow.  I want to drink Veuve Clicquot.

4. I don't give a fuck about Nicaragua.  Or Egypt. Or Haiti. Or whatever far-off land du jour everyone's talking about.

5.I used to vote Conservative.  Stevie creeps me right the fuck out, so I haven't voted Blue in a while, but before him... card carrying member.  I would go back if they would get rid of that douche.

6.I buy the majority of my clothes at The Gap.  Further, I believe their use of sweatshops is an excellent business decision.  Cheap labour keeps prices down, whether you like it or not.  Also, although perhaps not up to our North American standards, these factories are legitimate employers for people who would perhaps otherwise have to resort to begging or the sex trade.

7. I think that people who always say they have no money to go out would have a lot more money if they didn't drink so much. (At their home, of course)

8. I don't own leopard print tights, and I strongly believe the manufacture of such hosiery in any size over Small should be illegal.

9. I have never been on welfare. (Although hoping to change that this summer)

10.  I am not in University so that I can do good and make positive changes for our world.  I am there because I hope to earn a big fat paycheck which will enable me to buy all the Veuve Clicquot and diamonds I want. 

These are just the first ten reasons, there's lots more but I feel that ten at a time is plenty.
