A**hole of the Month Update
I’ve been reading a lot about Michael Vick lately (the only recipient of The B.S. Cafe’s “A**hole of the month” award) … he’s out of jail, wants back into the NFL, blah blah blah. I really don’t care if he goes back to playing football. He did his time and quite frankly, there are probably lots of felons playing professional sports these days, but as an animal lover, I almost lost my sh*t when I saw that the Humane Society is considering Vick as a spokesperson for animal cruelty. http://hsus.typepad.com/wayne/2009/05/michael-vick.html
O.M.G. WTF? He probably regrets what he did … maybe for real or maybe for what it cost him … but I have serious doubts that in the depths of his soul he believes what he did was wrong. (If he didn’t know that drowning, torturing, electrocuting and beating dogs was wrong two years ago, he probably doesn’t get it now.) And I would laugh out loud if you put him in front of me to lecture on animal rights. Or maybe I would just punch you in the face for thinking I would fall for that.
Has anyone else noticed the trend of putting large rocks on corners? Here are a few examples around my neighborhood:
This bothers me for three reasons:
1. What are you trying to protect? The grass? The curb? I’m confused.
2. If for some reason you had to drive up onto the curb to avoid an accident, or a pedestrian, or a small animal, or a person carrying a rock, you would hit that thing and totally FUBAR your car. Not even our Hummer would make it unscathed.
3. The fun in owning a SUV is being able to drive up on curbs, roll over medians, etc. Thanks for killing the joy.
— The B.S. Cafe is currently serving a strong desire to run something over.
We’re still here! Things are not really back to normal, but I do have electricity and Internet access, so that’s a good start.
There have been ridiculously long lines for gas…
and even when you get inside, the selection is limited. (Poor Flamin’ Hot Funyuns…no fun even when food is scarce.)
And of course, limited electricity means not much air conditioning, which is very hard to live without in Houston.
As of this morning, 36% of the city still has no electricity. Most of the traffic lights aren’t working, so traffic is a nightmare…and there is debris everywhere…
But we are still here!
More photos soon…
