Ego (E) versus Alter Ego (AE) on the time change to DT
AE: I’m not going along with it.
E: I changed some clocks; my body says no to the other clocks.
E: How about moving the clocks ahead 6 minutes per day for 10 days then the adjustment could be gradual? AE: Are you nuts? WTF!
E: You know Trump will never approve what we’ve already voted on in California because he hates we didn’t vote for him unless it’s to his advantage. AE: Like changing it on November 2nd 2020? Election eve? WTF
E: My Computer, Cell Phone and Tablet are on board with the change – maybe tech could fix my internal body clock too. AE: No Way!
E: One clock says its 4 pm and my body says it’s 3 pm. AE: Quit complaining and buck-up.
AE: I can’t think straight.
E: Dude, detach from linear time and enter eternal time. AE: Too much science-fiction? But okay, sounds good.
Here’s the thing about resolutions: like so many people I will make a resolution and break it.
Why is that?
It’s got to be the word right?
We need a different word for resolution or just throw the whole thing out and give me a break.
To resolve something just to do it over again re- solve it.
Why would I want to solve something that I’ve already solved that doesn’t make any sense does it?
So that’s why I gave up making resolutions a long time ago because I stopped trying to solve problems already solved once. Or why try to do it over again if you can’t do it the first time.
This is just a harangue a rant, a complaint, wah, wah… It’s a New Year’s thing, I know. It’s tradition on New Year’s to make up a list of things that you’re not going to do ever so don’t do it that’s what I say. I mean if you’re going to do it you just do it once and then it’s done and you don’t have to do it over again on New Years. I mean how many people do you know that actually make a resolution and go through with it I don’t know anybody. Maybe they’re self-help gurus, or highly successful goal driven people but I’ve never met one who has to re solve something.
I didn’t even realize until it was too late that my narcissistic cat was elected President of the United States.
I know what you’re going to say – all cats are narcissistic and you’d be right. But how many of them have the kahunas to become President?
Some history and the current resulting behaviors might be in order.
Hestares longingly at the refrigerator because he knows there’s food to bite on in there.
Hestares longingly out at the “biggest crowd in the history of Presidential Inaugurations” and feels the adoring millions because he needs his feeding.
He pounces on birds with the full power of his grasp. He plays with the birds, but doesn’t kill them, at least not right away and doesn’t pay attention to their noises.
Hepounces on those that oppose him because well its fun to plot against them for the kill as he put in his claws and listens to their tweets.
Hemarks his territory. What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine.
He marks his territory. What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine.
He gets mad when he doesn’t get his way. As a manipulation he ignores me, then whoosh he attacks.
He gets mad when he doesn’t get his way. As a manipulation he ignores the shootings, the hurricanes, the fires, the international incidents, the assignations, the poor, immigrants, those not in his tax bracket, et cetera, then whoosh and he attacks often accompanied with cries of “fake news”.
Cat-nip does nothing for him – but he sniffs diet coke
My cat – is no longer mine. Before he pounced for the Prez he changed his name to: T. R. Ump. Many call him Ump because with one swipe of his mighty paw he could call the game but always in his favor
I only wish he’d go back to being cat-sized again with a sunnier disposition and maybe as a female. Or become a duck and duck like Donald never did.
One group said let’s save money, balance our checkbook, don’t owe money or pay interest and everybody being equal works hard and gets what they want. After that the common good gets addressed.
Another group says let’s take care of the common good first since not everybody is equal in practice, so we have to make rules to make things fair. People who have so much money they can’t begin to spend it all need to pay more into the common good treasure chest to make things better for everyone including themselves. When this happens everybody gets richer.
How it is now:
One group says there are slackers created by the other group giving stuff away for free. But let’s save money, balance our checkbook, don’t owe money or pay interest, but if we have to pay interest let’s make a ton of money from it at the expense of the slackers to balance everything out and everybody being equal works hard and gets what they want. Our ideas of the common good are different from theirs. The other group is anti-American so they should be punished.
Another group says let’s take care of the common good first since not everybody is equal in practice so we have to make rules to things fair. People who have so much money they can’t begin to spend it need to pay more into the common good treasure chest to make things better for everyone including themselves. When this happens everybody gets richer. We have to be fair to the other group that makes us look bad because we ARE fair. And we don’t need to fight the other group in a down and dirty way because we’re better than that.
Each group used to serve all American People regardless of the amount of money they made. Now each group sold their souls to BIGMONEYso they pretend to support all Americans when they are not doing this. So nothing gets done for regular shmoes. Only “the right people” and Corporations and their BIG MONEY are rewarded. Everyone else is shafted.
Many don’t know that this failed sport went on to become a lifesaving technique.
That’s right. I bet you didn’t know that the Heimlich maneuver was a failed Olympic Sport.
Okay the winter version was better for vegans and vegetarians.
Swallow a chunk of pork sausage while skating fast down a long runway CHOKING and carrying a chair.
Throw yourself on the chair back just below your rib cage at the end of the runway
EJECTING the chunk of sausage over burning hot coals.
Whose ever sausage chunk goes the farthest before bursting into flames gets the Gold.
Many participants wear helmets and fire retardant suits in case they fall into the hot coals.
And many wear Hiemy Straps to help prevent accidental rib brakes.
Voted as TOO DISGUSTING for the Olympics. Also many broke their ribs with the Hiemy Strap and one person did choke to death because the performed the move incorrectly. A summer version was also tried with the same results.
In the town I live in they have road signs like Dip Ahead. I think snack time, bring your own chips.
Or out on the Highway “Survey Party” – but there’s never enough parking to get the survey. Is it answering questions first or snacking and then asking questions I never know.
But as a kid seeing signs like “Stop Ahead” I expect a severed head to be rolling around and some guy using his foot to stop it.
Or Road Narrows, but you never see Road Widens. Or Narrow Bridge Ahead -I just picture some mean ass bridge squeezing a head. Narrow bridge or Narrow road must have been authorized by conservative Republicans, reflects their singular focus and you need that to shoot somebody or fire a missile right. I mean a narrow place is wide to the narrow minded. Or what about Road Work stop Ahead and there’s nobody there or they’re eating lunch, Head cheese, you lucked out. Or one lane road, stop ahead. They have to wait for the rolling head to stop before cars can pass and you thought it had to do with road work.
“Slow Children Ahead” we’ve all suffered through this stupid joke without getting the real meaning behind it. One of the “children” is carrying a zombie head forcing the other children under their spell to go slow as zombies. This is one reason why you should drive fast if a child has the head.
Dip a Head – It gives “Dip A Head” whole new meaning: meaning Dip your head = why not go soak your head, soaking is different that dipping right? Soaking is full immersion. Dipping is a quick shot – you’re in you’re out. But if the dip is French onion dip you’d want to dip your head down to the lips – I guess that’s why you’d have chips – and dip and that’s using your head, cool.
The Pope and the Dali Lama Issue Mittens and Socks to Members of US Congress
The Pope and the Dali Lama have interceded with mittens and socks in the US Congress as a way to reduce finger pointing. A variety of finger pointing was used in a partisan manner Saturday at midnight when the government was shutdown.
Diagram 1 shows bad fingers in the pointing and casting of blame. Ooo naughty.
Picture 1 – Borrowed from “Uncle Sam Wants you for the US Army” poster though not necessarily bad is accusatory in the Bag Finger pointing matches.
Picture 2 – Index point finger of blame (not “fickle-finger-of-fate” award) is saying Position D: “You are to blame.” Position R: “No, you are to blame.” Bickering (petulant quarreling) or in the words of Monte Python “Nay saying.”
Picture 3 – Multiple pointy fingers — a din of bickering nay-saying ninnies. Dems and Repubs pointing en-masse.
Picture 4 – The Ultimate Bad Finger – Partisan Stand-Off
Diagram 2 Fingers and hands of Peace – no explanation
When the Pope and the Dali Lama first introduced mittens and “sock puppet” play puppets attacked and bit each other.
