SOMETIMES I CAN BE AS DENSE AS A PLANK!!!!!

I just realised how I can realise a different side of me…. Still searching for that balance, but perhaps looking on the raunchier side. And perhaps not. I may change my mind by the end of this post. 🙂

Oh, I’m going to be peppering this post with snaps taken today. Enjoy!

Let me share a few, BOOYAKITTY moments with you.

I’ve been deceiving myself. You see, I LOVE buffets. There is almost always something there for someone to eat; veggies, meat, fruit, legumes….whatever. My problem? I “lecture” people about portion control, and I admit, I follow my lectures……however having several (I’ll leave it at several thank you very much) plates kinda defeats the “portion control” part of healthy eating. So as of today, I don’t know the date, I will no longer eat at buffets.

Now time for Intermission

Well, it’s happening, my generation of friends, and I, are getting closer to that milestone. Some of us are turning 45ish inching closer to 50 as the clock ticks away. And I am beginning to see a trend in social media posts. Basically, folk are looking forward to being able to speak their minds without (they think) some reprisals for their unedited thoughts. Well, I believe I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

Just because one can say something, doesn’t mean that you should.

Oh, don’t preface a statement with, “I don’t mean any harm, but….”. Because, you do… Just sayin,

You know, that when folk come to me with their problems, I now ask them if this is a vent session or are they seeking advice. The answer determines just how much energy input into listening to them. Seriously,because if all you’re going to do is scream obscenities at me and wave your arms around like a demented windmill, then I’m really not interested. If you want “objective input, then I’m game. What is this leading up to Drew? An acquaintance (the kid who wants to be a peer with his parents.) Yeah, that gobshyte. Well, he’s done it again. He said something….several somethings to be exact and now that he has failed to deliver and I’ve called him on it. I’M AN ASSHOLE. (sorry for the pay channel language) I admit, I asked for it. And although “I am not in the business of being right or wrong.” I am in the business of accountability. If you say you are going to do something, DO IT! That’s all, just do it. Isn’t that a slogan?

Let’s see,what else? Oh yeah, cheaters.

I am a huge WWF (Words with Friends) fan. But I just realised that people actually CHEAT at that game. WTF ?(and I don’t mean Frak this time) so when I refused a game with someone, I was asked why. My answer, you cheat. I know you cheat because we’ve been playing for years and all of a sudden you play a 96 point word of foreign origin that you CAN NEITHER DEFINE NOR USE IN A SENTENCE.

Do you ever just get talked and listened out? I’m getting to that point now. I need holiday. I may take a room in some out of the way motel one weekend soon, just for me.

What’s up with all of the tectonic activity of late? You see, I’ve an app that alerts me of earthquakes. See…..

A 4.7 magnitude earthquake occurred in “Southern Sumatra, Indonesia” (Longitude: 100.265°, Latitude: -1.975°, Depth: 53 meters) on January 23, 2012 11:41:08 PM UTC.

A 6.3 magnitude earthquake occurred in “Offshore Chiapas, Mexico” (Longitude: -93.087°, Latitude: 14.963°, Depth: 80 meters) on January 21, 2012 6:47:15 PM UTC.

Americans: Happy Thanksgiving / Everyone else: Hey! :-)

THIS IS NOT A RACE RANT JUST SAYIN’

However, me being the patak (I speak Klingon better than I write it) I am, let me ask my American brothers and sisters and transgendered folk just what are we celebrating?

This is how I remember it….

Pale faces coming to these lands, telling the natives, who have lived here….well FOREVER….well as long as they can remember that how they live is WRONG. That their(pale face) way was the only true way, the RIGHT way.

Pale faces telling the natives that the way they worship and commune with THEIR higher power is WRONG. And that their (pale face) way was the only true way, the RIGHT way.

Then after they came, the natives started to die…illnesses they have never seen….are killing them. But that’s THEIR FAULT, because of how THEY lived. That is until they (pale face) came and told us … That their way was the only true way, the RIGHT way. Oh, their God is punishing those who refuse him.

That is what I seem to remember.

Hey, isn’t gluttony a sin? So, I guess this holiday is sanctioned by God and the rules are suspended?

I don’t know. This is where I went…..where I was lead to go, and now I am done!
