Sick Day, August 2015

One thing about not blogging very often is that the things I get sick of start building up to the point where I nearly have to do a Lewis Black rant.

Here is the most recent list:

1. I'm sick of all the O stickers that are on cars in Oregon.  So you like a University in Oregon, big deal.  Do you realize that once you are 500 miles out of Oregon no one has even heard of Oregon, let alone the University of Oregon.  It's just another school.

2. I'm sick of Washington Drivers.  When in Oregon, can you simply observe what the Oregon drivers are doing and mimic our behavior.  This means not coming to a full stop at every intersection that doesn't require it.  This means the speed limit is the speed you should be traveling; not 15 MPH below the limit if you are in front of me and not 15 MPH faster if you are coming up to tail-gate me.

3. I sick of the Minions.  I haven't seen the movie or perhaps movies, but I'm totally sick of seeing them on the Internet.

4.  Both Astoria and Seaside now need a bypass.  There is no way to get out of town quickly which makes me wonder how many more people will die if we ever have the quake and tsunami that is expected.

Here is my list:

As a Washington driver I'm sick of Oregon drivers who drive UNDER the speed limit when in our fair state.

I'm sick of the CSO project and feeling like I'm in a game of PacMan to wind my way around construction to get to places I need to get to in Astoria.

I'm sick of hipsters and their beards.

I'm sick of 'feelers' who are seemingly growing in numbers in Astoria. We are like a magnet to them, I guess.

I'm sick of this summer heat.

I'm sick of PUKERS (tourists)who need to go home now.

I suppose there are those of you who like the heat and the pukers, but I am sick of errands in town taking 3 times the amount of time it usually takes to do stuff because of the congested puker traffic on bridges, BILLIONS of pedestrians at every conceivable crosswalk in town and the hoards of people gawking at things everywhere that slow down traffic.

This simmering slosh of summer stew is making me wanna puke.

Love Wanda

The first time I saw the "O" sticker, I thought it was for Oprah. Perspective, I guess. As a Californian:

I was sick of traffic so thick that getting anywhere took three times as long as the thing I needed to do.

I was sick of California politicians who would try to ban aluminum bats, but can't manage to fund special services for the challenged.

I was sick of people being shot on the street around the corner, kick-in robberies, burglaries, flood control issues, high taxes, low quality education, and garbage thefts.

I was sick of the fact I thought being rude was normal.

I was sick of the fact I'd depleted the dating pool in three counties.

All better now. But I do have to live here and not there to do it.

Wanda, Sick of hipsters and their beards??? Where are you going to buy coffee? And I love how your state uses boulders instead of guard rails.

Me Here, depleted the dating pool eh? well here when that happens they move onto relatives.

Hey Mr. Guy,

I completely agree with the "O" stickers. There's a great saying, "I wear orange and black because I went to OSU. You wear yellow and green because UO wins at a game." (Note: I may have significant bias...)

I'm sick of the sun. Just seeing it makes me want to vomit now. I am over the heat, over the bugs, over the traffic--even here in the valley!--over the smoke and haze, over the stinky hippies, over it all. I want rain. I want my beautiful gray, cloudy, wet Oregon back.

I'm also sick of feminists. Men are not the enemy. Men are men, and women are women, and we will never be equal, but we can be respectful and choose to honor the differences between the sexes. I refuse to call myself a feminist at this point due to how horrible feminists are to men.

Miss reading your posts, and I hope you are well.

Jaggy, good to hear from you. I moved here for the gloom and I won't be content until the grass turns green again. I also miss blogging every day. It's just not the same as it was in our golden days. The blogs I used to read are rarely ever updated. So for now I too have become lazy and post only silly photos to facebook usually with no commentary. The golden days are gone.

First time I was in Oregon, I thought the "O" stickers meant they were fans of Oprah.
