for those not paying attention

Misc.
Two items:
1) I want to profusely once again thank Rob, for the case of freeze dried snail mailed to me at great cost.  All other minions, the three left, are in danger of being marginalized to Hanger On status.  Good job, brother.
2) Because I love the few that have stayed with me, I present to you news of a forthcoming book review.  "World Gone Wild" is a review of 800 or so post-apocalypse movies.  It costs near $30.  Do NOT think about buying one until I get my copy just ordered and preview it and pronounce it worth such cost or not.  It won't be a huge article or anything like that.  It will be additional writing only since I know most of you hate my book/movie reviews.  This is just me spending a little to save more than one minion money.  You are welcome in advance ( I wouldn't expect this for about another two weeks or so ).
END

  1. #1 Do the freeze dried snails come with dehydrated garlic butter?
    #2 Better stock up on candles: http://www.space.com/27498-major-solar-flare-video.html Seems the Mayans may have been off by 365 days or so.

    1. We can hope, kill off the ebola victims prior to reaching us if the planes and trains don't run. I'm reminded of the pathetic attempts of the Y2K crowd to call it "one year off", also, however.

    2. 4 hour tea light candles $4.49 for a hundred pack at Fred Meyer this week. That's a lot of trailer warming and ice-thawing over a winter. At least 500 candles will fit in a 5Gal bucket with room for a dozen lighters.

    2. Sorry to disappoint Hairy Lord, but when they post this kind of generic crap, they're usually just building a fake profile to be able to post spam later (and it might not be on your blog but another blogspot blog) and not be banned as fast as if their first message was a spam.

      You see she didn't mention anything about what you wrote. This is just a generic comment that could be posted on ANY blog and wouldn't be out of place.

    3. No, no. By all means, shatter my innocence. Seriously, I have little idea this is how things work. It did sound a little flat. I just thought, perhaps English as a second language. Oh well.

    1. Not to be a hater, but I'm thinking your Great state might kind of suck. The building restrictions make it sound like po folk need not apply to live rurally. Ever since I read "Deer Hunting With Jesus", I kind of get the idea most of the South is rigged that way-real estate agents in cahoots with local governments to keep the class system of sharecropping alive.

    1. Women wouldn't have to change men so often if we could just be aggressively protective as we shared our feelings over tea and gossip and learned to listen as we shut off our sex drive because we shouldn't want to hump but instead make sweet unhurried love and not insist on ejaculation. As a male I am deeply ashamed of our gender. I'm seriously thinking of Gringo's this weekend. Last weekend, I worked Sat. Weekend before that, went into town for shopping. Next weekend, shopping again ( I'm stocking up on pouch hamburger and TP in case of Ebola ). This is about the weekend it could happen. We'll see.

  10. I feel like a Japanese soldier abandoned on a Pacific Island during WWII waiting for communication from my commanding officer.

    Hope you start posting more than once a week. There is so much news happening on a daily basis, you should be able to find something to talk about.

    This is the APOCALYPSE not a vacation. Get to work.

    1. I've never seen myself, per se, responding as a reporter to events occurring but an analytical writer on deeper issues needed to understand those daily happenings. Perhaps I am deluding myself. But, look at for instance Racoteur Report Blog. Excellent reporting daily on Ebola. No where else better. But after a week of it, you are either convinced or not. Either way, why keep reading other than morbid fascination? The daily reporting helps how, then? I love your analogy on the soldier. I won't immediately discount the idea of a very short daily briefing, but in the past its been much more reading and searching and agonizing over subject matter than writing- which beguiles me no end.

  11. And the problem with morbid fascination is????

    Regarding the news reporting. Most folks react to the news based on how it will affect their yuppy lifestyle.

    Folks who live on the fringe are affected in different ways by different things . This is what you need to report on.

    For example, Ebola. The lowly minimum wage, trailer dwelling minion could probably care less. Heck, they probably think Ebola is a new sugar free version of Coca Cola.

    But, they are affected by the fact that they can't get Emergency Room medical care anymore because the hospitals are locked up tighter than a 3rd world dictator' s palace.

    The lowly white trash irregular needs to adjust their outlook and think of another plan when their wife wants to go to the ER for a sniffle.

    What once was an annoying 3 hour wait among snot nose kids has now turned into a hazmat situation with folks who have coughs being escorted to the waiting military transport out the back door.

    See the difference?

    1. I got ya now. But I'll have to process that a bit, see it through to a possibility or not. I'm not trying to ignore the minions all week, just trying for that sanity I lost long ago.

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
