How the zipcode eases your postal pain... [Sep. 14th, 2008|10:17 am]
randomposting
I am beginning to believe that there are agents in the Universe working against me keeping this journal up.

Everytime I get out of my funk and get ready to start resuming my daily posts something else goes wrong.

Grr! I will prevail. And you will have your daily randomness once again. It may not be tomorrow.. or Wednesday.. but it will happen!

In the meantime, thanks for your patience and all your support. I love you guys. It sucks being away but I'm having to make my family and health my priority.

But the nice thing about being away is that you always get a giant post when I come back. This one is very news-sh.

First... -- http://www.metro.co.uk/weird/article.html?Giant_ice_penis_-_is_climate_change_to_blame?&in_article_id=304450&in_page_id=2


A giant ice penis, because I feel every Sunday morning should start with one of those.

Secondly.. Lose your house, lose your vote. Especially if you're black. GRR.

And thirdly.. Some information about Sarah Palin.. and how under her as mayor, Wasilla Alaska used to bill victims and/or their insurance for rape kits. Basically, if you didn't have insurance and couldn't afford to pay for the rape kit yourself, your rape would be uninvestigated. Sooo classy. Definitely the kind of morality compass I want guiding the country.

And fourthly and lastly.. a 33 year old Mom stole her 15 year old daughters identity so she could join the cheerleading squad. No. Really.

Here's your youtube. I think it's good enough to do just one. :) It's The Swinging Six introducing Zip Codes. And then some other mail ads too. Keen!

Hoping she'll be back soon!

sarah palin is kind of a nightmare for this country, as much as mccain would be if he won. she is so ass-backwards, it would continue to bring this country back to the dark ages.

i am not saying obama is any better, or that icky libertarian or green candidate.

politics are so effed up. i recently came to the conclusion that the government is a gang. except gangs have codes and follow them. the government are just guys who love power and hurting people.

and it is totally effed up.

wow, that was a long rant. sorry.

i've missed you, miss random. i hope that you do come back soon. family is more important though.

She scares me more then, McCain. I find her terrifying. Him, just, scary.

I really like Obama. He cares about the people of thsi country. Where I feel McCain only cares about 5% of the people of this country.

And I feel ya, Im feeling very rantish myself.

And I miss you darling. Good to hear from you. *hugs* I hope you're doing well.

The hospital charged me for my hospital visit after being assaulted. And then, because I declined a rape kit, they didn't really investigate at all.

People suck. Hardcore.

And that last link, about stealing identity, I find hilarious. Just to join pep squad! Whee!

*snugs* Miss you, but take care of yourself, you hear!

That's so awful. I'm so disgusted with this country. *hugs*

*snugs* Thanks love. I'm working on it. Miss you too.

And yay, Pep squad moms! ;) If only I had a daughter so I could steal her identity and be a cheerleader..

Palin makes me want to vomit. And what makes me want to vomit more are women who claim they are feminists supporting her as if she gives a shit about gender equity.

Sending you hugs!

RAndom!!! Once again, no apology necessary. I hope things are getting better for you. Consider yourself hugged.

Caption contest:

Some fo the members of Sarah's Society for the Prevention of Dutch Elm Disease felt that her reaction was extreme, but Sarah knew better. Doug's summary execution was the only way to ensure group loyalty after his defiant refusal to salute the Elm Tree Flag. May God have mercy on his soul.

Don't beat yourself up over not posting on some schedule. Blogging should be fun, not an obligation. Unless you're doing it for money, I guess.

Besides, as I've said before, your "Random" name is an excuse in advance, and gives the expectation that you'll post whenever you want, and in an unpredictable fashion.

That's true, but I know people look forward to some daily randomness in their lives, and that's why a lot of folks added me.. and I just feel guilty about not having that for everyone.

I hope you feel better VERY soon! It's not fun when life intervenes with some of the things you really want to do, but it's totally understandable and necessary to keep those first things first. *hugs*

I'm still reeling from the rape kit story. I have no words for how angry that makes me.
