Sick Day VIII


(Special thanks to Portosan for his photo shop work in producing a vomiting Santa for me to share with the readers on this blog.I owe you, Port.)

I AM SICK OF Pink Martini and Three Leg Torso and the Coats (Formerly known as the Trench Coats but changed their name after Columbine). We need some new musical attractions here. The afore mentioned three acts are tired and need to go away for at least five years. Sure the Liberty Theater needs to raise funds, but now I am willing to pay just so I don’t have to see these three acts any more...ever again!

I AM SICK of batteries that have to follow a direction. You would think that after all these years there would be a device other than a flash light where you could put batteries in that all face the same direction. Every damn device out there you have to put one nipple up and one nipple down. If you have a digital camera that takes four or more batteries, you’ve got them going in all directions. All it would take is adding a couple inches of low voltage wire and we could have a standard battery installation in all devices. One can also redesign the battery so it wouldn’t matter.

I AM SICK of Bradwood Landing and North Star. They are sending me more mail than Ron Saxton sent to those who are registered as independents. Stop wasting paper. If you really cared about the environment you would take your money and make things more efficient so we don’t need to use natural gas at all. Invest all your LNG money in wind turbines and wave turbines. You (North Star) are like the tobacco companies that try to show what good people you are by having a website that talks about the danger of smoking. If they really cared they would stop selling their evil shit. If you really cared you would leave our river alone and invest in other forms of energy.

Finally, I wasn't going to make this about Christmas, but I'm sick of all that plastic blow-up Xmas lawn litter. Yeah folks, make your neighborhoods look like shit for 1/12 of the year.

So I guess that means that there won't be any huge inflatable, working snow globes on your property this year eh??

hehehe sorry couldn't resist....it was mentioned on another blog recently and I have been seeing SO many of them EVERYWHERE!!! As with so many things in life....they used to be a novelty and I might see one per season if that...but now they are cropping up everywhere as everyone jumps on the keeping up with the Jones's bandwagon!!

It kind of make sense in one respect and that is storrage. You deflate and put it away in a smaller space than that hard plastic crap, but it is still FUGLY.

speaking of the bradwood thing that came in the mail, did you spot the photo of trestle bay that is in Ft. Stevens ? The caption under it said "Fort Clatsip State Park"..... and did you also notice on the map on the last page that the place most affected in case of an "event" at the facility, Puget Island, is missing???????

Anonymous, I caught the one mistake, but I didn't notice the lack of the island, mostly because I am pretty unfamiliar with the charts and maps of that area. I usually kayak down stream of the John Day Landing. We started discussing this on the message board as well.

Lelo, there is some major vomit going on here now that I've gone to that site. To make it worse there is a collectors association, and they have them for every possible event.

Yeah, Boo. Portosan is the man of the day. Not only does he spend time reading this stuff, but he took it upon himself to dedicate his free time to making todays post possible.

Thank's You!!! A small amount of time compared to what you put into this Blog, guy. This Blog is soooooo appreciated by many.

Booo, Thaank yooou!

I need some good upside down flying seagull images if anyone has them.

I Know! the Bradwood stuff in the mail. It comes addressed to my 18 month old son. I don't trust there message just on that point alone.

Anyhoo, get well soon.

We have two addresses for our property, plus a po box for important mail because we can't see the mail box out on the high way, so we get three times the crap mail. I bring it all in to the Post Office when I pick up the PO mail and put it into their garbage can. Ditto on all of the LNG sentiments.

I think it's time for the local bloggers to start hammering North Star. Are you in?

You're lucky if you only have to see the lawn litter for 1/12 of the year. Did you know they make those god damned fucking blow up things for easter, St Patricks day, thanksgiving and halloween? Oh wait, how could I possibly forget valentines day. and what the fuck is up with christmas lights. People, you doen't have to illuminate every single fucking thing that is vertical on your property. In fact, please don't. And don't try to make your flag pole look like a tree either, it's just stupid and it's a tripping hazard for your mailcarrier.

Zoe, you know I love it when you talk like that ; ) May I get you a bb gun for your birthday?

I have a suggestion for the battery problem--stop using things that require replacable batteries! If you must use batteries, get rechargeable ones. If you're in the market for a digital camera get one with a rechargable Li-Ion battery (they only go in one way) or get rechargeable AA batteries for one that requires AA batteries--they're cheaper in the long run, and better for the environment.

I'm with you on the crappy Christmas lawn litter. Not only is it tacky ugly, it sucks from an environmental standpoint. Most of it is plastic (made from oil), made in China and only lasts for a year or two before it ends up in a landfill. Merry Christmas, my ass. Just think if the time, money and effort that went into Christmas decorating went to a worthy cause instead...

Sorry, I tried getting past that vomiting santa and I just couldn't...

**gag, cough**

Something about Christmas decorations? It's the people with their friggin' "icicle lights" hanging from their gutters all year round. God! Take them down already..oh but wait a minute, it's December...may as well leave them up for another season.

Blogger The Guy Who Writes This said...

Rich, I do use all rechargeables, but some go in this way and others go the other way. Big Butt Rash is all I'm saying. It all comes down to land fill, doesn't it. Every time I see parents set up those plastic play houses for their kids I think that maybe the parents should be sentenced to spend a day at the transfer station so they can get a clue of what the problem is.

Sorry, Trish. I should come up with a warning for disgusting posts and photos, but if you see the article heading "Sick Day" it would be a good idea to turn away. I post one every month. And if you thought this one was bad, wait until you see the one for January. I get sick just thinking of it.

Icecicle lights? They leave them up all year? I thought you lived in a nice neighborhood.

OMG...a BB gun. I think you have just given my life new meaning for this holiday season.

My son recieved another Bradwood mailing today. Same piece of mail as earlier this week. I cannot say for sure, but I think this is a case of rat-bastard (am I allowed to say that?). Not to mention communicating with a minor for immoral porposes, by sending this mail to my son.

I WONDER if any of them look in on this blog.

How about requiring development of land that is already contaminated. Clean up the site, then you can build your plant? Say, the Trojan site. Nah, leave that alone too!

I dunno much. I do not know much about LNG but I do know a little about RBS (rat bastard syndrome)


And the energy the christmass lights use. That and the garbage, stress, expense. Bradwood. Now I'm gonna be sick. I will be sure to send you a picture, guy.

There is often dangerous amounts of led in the blow up plastic stuff. Vinyl lunch boxes also. So, carefull with the BB guns and might not want to let the kids knaw on the inflatable decorations. There are instant result led test swabs you can get at home improvement retailers. I know Ace has them.

Needless to say, we had ALLOT of inflatable plastic and vinyl that I was given to play with as a kid.

I can't believe I'm about to agree with you, especially regarding a holiday issue--so don't let it go to your head. But those blow up decorations are sacrilege. My personal deity, Martha Stewart, is offended by such displays. And I'm pretty sure Jesus doesn't like them either.

Blogger The Guy Who Writes This said...

Syd, I did say bb gun, no using the 9 for lawn art. Also TLF is a minor, let him do the shooting.

Port, RBS is a complicated thing, but easily recognized. Yes, Northern Star has it. BTW I wrote them yesterday and their reply was they will take me off their mailing list. But I think I want to stay on their mailing list just so I can see what they are up to and comment on it.

Pollyanna,I try not to let anything go to my head. I do let things go to my heart, though. And I don't write so people will agree or disagree with me. I just write to remove things from my head so I can move on. It would be cool to see how Jesus would fit in the world today, but you're probably right, he wouldn't like all the plastic out there.

I was joking! :) I think I need to start inserting sarcasm tags on my posts. ;)

I love the way think. A gift many in my neighborhood would appreciate me having.

Polly, how about if I just assume everything you post is either sarcastic or sardonic?

Zoe, Now Syd want's one, too. See what you started; )

Frankly I'm suprised she doesn't already have one in her arsonal. Of couse, maybe she just doesn't bother with anything that can't take down a bear in one shot.

Aw, c'mon guys! They're a fad, like pink flamingoes. I don't have one and won't have one, but my little girls love looking at them.

I have a beef with a lot of other crap in front of houses, and nobody has yet taken all of the trash off the damn porch or even out of the lawn of the house around the corner from us. A few festive tacky decorations are nothing compared to this place.

Oh! Wait! Even worse: That place on Eighth that's square and brown that I thought couldn't get any worse until they put a FRIDGE on the front porch????

And if I get another piece of mail from Bradwood, I can make my own tree...
