November 10 2010

The Carnival cruise ship stranded off the coast of Mexico is limping along back to port. At least they have cold water and the toilets work. But they are running out of food. US Navy helicopters are delivering Spam, crab meat, croissants and Pop Tarts. Crab meat? SPAM??

You gotta be kidding me. Who eats Spam?!? (and crab meat? Yuck!) Who would send rescue supplies including Spam!?

Maybe it's because nobody in the Navy would eat it.

Spam!? Seriously!?

Evil Eye

While I liked the 60 minutes episode on Zenyatta, I can't help but feel that it was a bad call for the mare. Drawing attention to something amazing is said to bring out envy and thus the evil eye for that amazing something. I'd have waited until after the last race. She was still utterly incredible. The best runner ever.

Bad Person

October 11 2010

I just discovered that many qualities I hate in other people I have in myself.

It's not pretty.

The Lord is Sooo Disappointed

September 9 2010

Things are so different now from back in the days when I used to go to church. In the last 8 years there has been such a big Christian movement - and at the same time there's more racism, sexism, paranoia, fear, and outright hatred - from those who scream loudest that they are God-fearing people.

Am I missing something here? What does any of this have to do with the Bible and Christianity? Didn't Jesus preach love and peace and all that, or was that a different Jesus?

And explain how this Christian Florida pastor's proposed burning of a Koran is going to be copacetic with Jesus or what he taught? A deliberate act of hatred will prove what? That Christians are on the right track if they are capable of such great hatred?

If so, count me out.

Tea Time

September 6 2010

Don't get me wrong - just because I'm not blogging daily doesn't mean I don't have opinions which are right!

Like this one.

Some cultures have this great tradition where you show up at someone's house and you're immediately served a cup of tea or coffee before getting down to business or visiting. It's simply charming and sensible.

Did you know that Adam, of Adam and Eve fame, had a first wife Lilith?

I didn't either, but now I know.

Don't Tax On Me

April 30 2010

We want national security. We want international security. Some of us wanted the war in Iraq. (Some of us didn't, and we got it and have it.) Some of us want the war in Afghanistan. (Some of us didn't, and we got it and have it.) We want policemen for protection and park officials for patrolling national parks. We want good roads. We want our services. We want it all, and we deserve it all.

But don't raise my taxes - nobody wants to pay for it.

So - who's going to pay for all this?

Yo Mamma?

Why do the British pronounce "issues" as "Iss-ee-yous" instead of "Ish-oos" like it's spelled?

Illegal Schmillegal

Re: the new Immigration Law in Arizona

Which should be more accurately called Paranoid White Racist American Law.

"They take away our jobs!" Uh - no they don't. How many Americans work for $1 an hour in the fields and live 15 to a one-room shack? How many of you are going to whine, complain, blame the guv'ment, weep and gnash your teeth when the prices of: fruits, vegetables, housing, construction, hotels, fast food, car repair, and, well, just about everything, goes up, because these Undesirables no longer work on the cheap for us all?

Instead of building a Berlin wall, shooting perpetrators, or barricading yourself in your home so as not to be near 'those people,' think about some options.

Like: if the illegals were legalized and made to: pay taxes, social security and medicare, buy health and car insurance, they 1) wouldn't want to come here so much and 2) they'd be contributing to society, bring medical and car insurance costs down, and helping pay for the system that supports them now for free. That would mean, more savings, more money, for you and me!

A wall's not going to keep them out, border patrols won't keep them out; they aren't going to stop driving cars and using hospitals; ain't no white people going to be flooding the fields to take the illegals' jobs; white officials' hands and pockets will get greased to look the other way just as easily as they are now... so let's think about the realities (one of which is NOT a pure white members-only United White States) before blood is shed over this.

Get over yourselves, Pure (But Not Really) White People.

Fly the Friendly Skies

Tuesday April 20 2010

wow. listen to all those people complaining they can't get a flight home from their vacations in Europe because of the grounding of flights due to the ash clouds from the Iceland volcano eruption.

One would think the Air Transportation WhoHahs are basing their decisions on the safety of passengers and the desire to prevent tragedies of crashed airplanes and dead people. I reckon it would be worth it to be stuck in Spain or France if there was a possibility I might die in a plane crash. I could eat lots of tapas and pastries and read a couple of books while I waited.

Think of the even louder outcries (from these same people) if a plane crashes because it flew too soon when it wasn't that safe.

Is it worth just one plane crashing?

Are they all really in THAT big a hurry to get home?

Would you be willing to gamble on the odds?

Boycott Exxon!

March 25, 1020

Which I have done since the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska in 1989, for which they still have not taken responsibility. I have not, nor will I ever buy a drop of gas from Exxon until they do so. I will run out of gas and walk for 50 miles before I support them.

One day my personal, single boycott may bring them to their knees. Then they'll wish they owned up sooner.

It is UNCONSCIONABLE that we carelessly toss our men and women, sons and daughters, into war, and then refuse, or make difficult, physical or mental treatment for them when they get home.

So many are quick to scream "WAR WAR WAR!" and then remain silent when the Veteran gets home and is turned away from health care.

Anybody else using hotmail?

Anybody else getting SICK of it?

have a problem? The only way you can get help is plead for help on forums from other users who have had the same problems.

Maybe I'm wrong and you can actually get live help from support - but I can't find it. which is almost as bad as not giving you help.

There should be a HELP button, like any other email company has, where if you need help, you email for help, and SUPPORT helps you.

I'm paying for this stupid service. I'm dumping it when it comes up for renewal.

Stop the Music

OMG - would you bloggers stop putting on damn music that automatically comes on whenever I go to your blog page???

For god's sake. I might have a couple of blog pages open at once, and all these damn tunes start playing. What if I'm already listening to the radio?!

Here's a suggestion. If you must put your music choices on there - like I care what you like - give me a PLAY button. Don't make it so I have to search your whole page through all the adds and awards and other crap you have on there to find the music icon and find the PAUSE button to stop the noise.

Better yet, take the music off! If I want to listen to what you want me to listen to, I'll email you and beg you to share with me what you like.

Now, just to show you how irritating it is, I'm going to go put a COUPLE of these music things on my blog page here, so they all come on automatically and you have to listen to all of them at once.

British Teeth

It appears that a rather large number of British people have bad teeth. What's up with that? Aren't there dentists in Great Britain?

Kirstie Alley? Enough Already

OK, I get it, she gains lots of weight, she triumphs and loses lots of weight, she gains lots of weight, she triumphs and loses lots of weight. Why does she have to become a Re-Celebrity every time she loses weight? I GET IT. ENOUGH ALREADY.
