Considering I’ve been So Lax…

with the conclusion of Phyllis and The Cowboy, I thought I would revel in my procrastination of all things work related and share a few thoughts I had today while screwing in the time.   There is absolutely no reference point on this blog for the following.  All I can tell ya is that I thought it and now you will too.  Hehehe, I’m dirty like that lol

Time Waster Thought #1

P.E.T.A:  I was reading an article about Pam Anderson being in debt to the State of California and the IRS.  This naturally led me to her only true vocation after Baywatch and Tool Time ( no, not breast implants and playing ping pong with Tommy Lee and Kid Rock)  annoying meat loving folks across the globe.   Of course this took me down the path of this obsession some people (mostly fame whoring celebrities) have with the life span of cows, pigs and chickens and their distaste for the murder these innocent creatures solely for the purpose of feeding our bodies. Okay, meat tastes good.  No, actually it tastes phenomenal and we aren’t the only creatures who eat it either.  In fact, the celebrities who are part of P.E.T.A  frequently have a lovable furry creature attached to them in the form of a dog or cat.  Mostly it’s a dog though and this is where it becomes sort of hypocritically fascinating.  Any vet or animal expert will tell you that dogs and cats and well, all non herbivores NEED meat or they will die.  Their bodies demand the protein for survival therefore, tell me, what exactly do these P.E.T.A people feed their pets?  Doesn’t the odd cow, chicken, pig or horse have to satisfy the basic needs of their pet?  Doesn’t some human being have to kill one of these creatures so that Hollywood Fido can slurp his dish clean hence ensuring his survival?  Why don’t these P.E.T.A people ever chain themselves to the Alpo plant?  Lastly, I would love to see someone fill a hungry pitbull’s dish with some lovely fresh beans, sprouts and tofu.

Time Waster Thought # 2

The Rock may have a guest this coming week.  Yes, you may not have heard of it because A. It’s in Canada and no one knows anything about our little country and B. It’s happening here on this little island in Canada.  Who is it you may ask?  Why it’s none other than Muammar Gadaffi. Yes that’s right, he is dropping in for a spell on his way back from his long winded rambling appearance at the U.N.   What the hell he wants to come here for is beyond me.  Let me rephrase that, there is nothing here.  I would however suggest he take his car out for a spin on the roads and explore our many potholes and if that doesn’t shake him up, the idiot drivers will.  🙂  Terrorism?  Hell, it’s road terrorism here, the worst kind. 😉  If his translator thought Muammar could go on, they haven’t listened to the premier of this province waffle on for hours and hours and hours.  Hey, wait a minute, this kinda ties in with the P.E.T.A. thought.  Didn’t Williams humiliate himself on Larry King Live,  trying to fame whore wrestle Sir Paul McCartney and Heather gives-me-the-chills Mills?  Why yes he did by golly, just goes to show you, vegetarians and meat eaters each have their own spokesidiots to ignore.

There, see what happens when I just empty my head and don’t actually write anything. Yeah, I’m hanging my head in shame, but it’s still not enough to push me to write what I was supposed to finish a week ago.  Argh.

  1. I love celebrity whores….Youre neck of the non woods would make a perfect colony. We could come, pay a fee, drive around the pot holes, see them in their habitat, get some autographs and head home..Might put ya on the map of tourism!

  2. IT is great what you wrote val, you are writting after all, cheer up, do not be so harsh on yourself.
    While I was reading the end I thought that you could be one of those womans that get paid for apearing on tv critiscicing celebrities, I think that is funny, besides it will be the first time in history that they will be told what are indeed the wrong and absurd things they do, instead of getting critisized for wearing non matching pair of shoes.
    The peta issue reminded me to charity, is the same hypocrit kind of thing.

    Charity is a way to transfer that force to others about whom we feel guilty. sometimes we feel guilty because we feel responsible for their plight, and sometimes we feel guilty just because we have stuff and they don’t. But by transferring ownership of the ‘money-force’ through charity, we make it harder for them to understand their own relationship with money. We cannot bear to see their suffering, their otherness, so we give away our power to make them more like us – except not quite as good. Charity is always more about the giver than the receiver.

    Was to far fetch my asociation? I do not know but to me, at this moment thet do fit.

    Love V

    1. Yes mariana, that does fit and it’s an angle that more people need to explore. I’ve been on the receiving end of that ‘charity’ right here in this place I live and anything given to a person in need always has a price tag attached. Usually the price tag is eternal gratitude and remaining in need! Of course, now that I’m not that person it’s interesting to step back and observe how certain people bungle conversations with me, unable to relate to me as an equal, rather than the overwrought mother in distress they met a few years ago. Thank you for understanding my procrastination and I carry ‘work guilt.’ I used to be a workaholic and even though I’ve mellowed, it still roars at me from it’s cage. Thank you also for your appraisal of my ability to give a tongue lashing to hypocritical celebrities. Hmmm, maybe you are on to something here, I may do something with that on the weekend. HUGS mariana and much love from me to you.

    1. Oh noooooooooo Jessie, we have them too! The roads here are the worst I have ever seen in my life. Every road looks like a gutter the asphalt is so worn down and then you hit the surprise bump ramps or bandaged tar scars just to wake up your suspension. The people in the business of repairing automobiles make a mint here.

  3. Well now, that was fun. It must be time to get wasted.
    Speaking of dirty…laxatives make me go-go-go, too.

    Oh, man! Pit Bulls and beans? Imagine the farts.
    And you know, fish eat other fish, but we don’t
    call them cannibals for doing so. What’s up with that?
    The species of Homo Erectusians were vegetarians.
    That’s why their brains were so small. Have they no
    clue whatsoever? I refuse to bend over backwards.

    Gadaffi is long winded and looks like the fool he is.
    Waffle on? I like that. (What the hell does it mean?)
    I think he needs to read one of those ‘related posts’
    up there. The “Praying Earnestly Manuscript” one.

    And keep your chin up, dammit!
    Or else you’ll choke on that steak. Argh!

    1. LOL Treeman, I wonder if we could get Gadaffi to hold a raw steak out to a starving pit bull? I bet he wouldn’t need laxative during that event. Chin is up even though I’m surrounded by cannabalistic fish in a very small pond where I live. Waffle: 1. a tasty breakfast food served with syrup and butter and MEAT, usually of the pork variety 2. A politician’s use of overtalking to cover the flip flopping through the bore you to death technique. 🙂

  4. Unfortunately one of my sisters (a vegetarian) decided that her German Shepherd would have a happier life if it followed her good example…

    You have never seen a dog with so little “soul” in its eyes.

    The poor thing endured nine years of that hell before it finally succumbed to one of its numerous medical complaints.

    This is one of the reasons that we no longer have any contact.

    1. You have won the award for the funniest goddamn comment I’ve received this week honorarynewfie! LOLOLOLOLOLOL Udderly brillliant! If you could hear my cackle right now! I hope you come back again, I love your wit.
