Scooter is in the house!!!!!

Quick Note: Where the HECK were we??? Yup, the blog dissapeared for OVER TEN HOURS today... basically, I spent from 9am until 12:30pm being over-attacked by a spammer... about 1 spam per second... that SHOULD be dealt with now...

Then, after finding the fix, the SQL server crashed on my server side... and was down all day...

Well, we're back now... and here's Sue's post to welcome our latest renter...

The standard last note on the old blog... PLEASE SUPPORT THE DREAM!

This blog is here to help promote a dream that an entire family shares... that dream is to rescue an old London Double-Decker bus.

RLH 3

Please, if you have a few minutes, take some time to find out more about this bus and the kooky dream by clicking here.

This bus is VERY special to myself and the whole family, and any help any person can lend us would be most gratefully accepted.

Tags, Memes, and other assorted things... and going back on my word for an FOAD...

Forgive me this morning if my blog entry seems a touch disjointed... You see, SOMEONE (no names need to be mentioned) felt that 6:56am on a Saturday when I don't have to work was a fine time to wake up... so "he" felt no issues with jumping onto my chest and sticking his face into mine until I caved in and got up.

So, I'm a little... okay, a LOT tired and "fehclempt"...

Again, however, I don't feel the need to "out" this nefarious waker-upper... but he's responsible more than anything for the cotton-like feeling that now occupies the space my brain normally does.

No, I will not "name names" in this case...

The Usual Suspect

On that note, on with the 'normal' blog entry!

I know this won't be popular, but I really am not into the whole "Here, Quick! Here's something for you to blog about since you're apparently creatively bankrupt at the moment!" things for the most part.

I don't begrudge other's doing it... but it isn't for me.

When I started the blog, I let a couple go through, but since then, have attempt my best to avoid them and post unique stuff...

...but there is one I like...

Angry

FOAD (usually Thursdays)... which stands for "Fornicate Off and Die"... in not so pleasant words.

Sure, it's nothing more than a structured, usually scheduled rant at something, but it's more often than not amusing... or insightful... although there are those who post FOAD entries to people they go to school with (usually, when reading those ones, a voice in my head is screaming Omigawd! That's, like, so awful! (that internal voice dripping with sarcasm)... but usually, I do like 'em... and today, thanks to The Tethered Cow Blog, I introduce an FOAD post...

SUV

To the supposedly safety minded, faux-environmentalist, green-thinking-if-not-acting moms in my neighbourhood... guess what I want YOU to do???

Ah yes... You see, they live within a ten minute walk of all their shopping, medical, fashion, and overall general needs... ten minutes from their kids school... and they drive four-wheeled drive, gas guzzling sport utility vehicles like they just robbed a bank.

Oh, come election time or "town meetings", they scream about lack of green spaces or getting speed bumps to slow down traffic and the like... despite the fact that THEY drive the most uneconomical, environmentally unfriendly vehicles available to the masses that are capable of speeding over speed bumps (which they often do) without any issues... as they drive THEIR kids to school and then drive to get THEIR groceries or whatever... perish the thought of (GASP!) walking!!!

"Oh," they often say, "I want speed bumps to protect MY child if they ever actually go out onto the street... but be damned with yours! I'm in an SUV and these speed bumps are NOTHING and I'm late for my hair appointment!"

You see, THEIR version of "Environmentally Friendly"/"Green Thinking" is two points...

- If it raises my property value, it's good! Be damned your needs!

- If it slows you down and gets you out of my (much more important) way, it's good!

Pontification

You can see in their tiny-little brains that they "support" anything they assume to be politically green and correct... thinking, "It's a great idea and will only benefit ME... er, I mean, everyone!"

These are the same crapwits who, when asked if public transport should be funded better and expanded, they JUMP to say, "WHY YES! It's a FANTASTIC idea and far better for the environment!" when they're not ever thinking of using the public transport systems themselves... NO! PERISH THAT THOUGHT TOO! No, they want YOU to take the new and improved system... giving them MORE room for themselves!

It's very much like, "Close that airport! Even though it was there long before I was born, it's ruining my property values and spoiling the view of the place I grabbed cheaply... er, I mean... it's a heavy polluter and the noise is awful! Now, I'm off to my big-butt SUV to drive three blocks at high-speeds!"

Recycle

Oh, and simply putting out a "Blue Box" and recycling your old milk cartons and newspapers does not mean you're an environmentalist! It's a start... but it does not make you "aware" nor does it mean we'll applaud you in your big four-wheeled drive.

To these lack-lustre, sheep-like, "Aren't I globally conscious?, out-of-touch hypocritical women (and men... although I admit, women are the worst offenders in my neighbourhood...), I say a HEARTY F.O.A.D. - S.V.P. You freakin' pantloads!

May you're politics finally find someone LEGITIMATELY green... who takes away your death-trap, speeding-over-speed-bump, four-wheeled drive monstrosities... and all the other "conveniences" you say you so richly desire.

You see, I have enormous amounts of patience for almost anything... save incompetence and hypocrisy... and the lot above are BOTH... and what's scary is that THEY CAN AND DO VOTE!!!

Ahhh... I feel better...

Hmmm... perhaps sometime soon, I'll go through the craptacular "science" and other "logical reasons" the brilliant woman at "Stop the Choppers" in Toronto used to stop us getting a police helicopter... She's someone who obviously doesn't have kids and enjoys high-speed pursuits... and she has never explained how she feels about the current-running Medivac helicopter we have. I suppose she wants to stop that too...

Er, umm... next time for that one! :)
