I Am Going To Vote

I was raised and have always lived by the motto “never pay full price for anything”, as many of us have and this policy is spreading like wildfire all throughout the country. With the economy not getting any better, in fact it is getting worse for all the people that I know and love. It’s so bad that I actually can’t think of a single soul that I know that is doing OK, much less doing all right or doing well, or even getting better mind you. That just really sucks. I’d give anything to have a conversation with someone that is on the positive side, but right they are full of sorrow and heartache all thanks to our government, thank you very much!

This fucking election is really getting folks stirred up. I don’t even go onto Facebook anymore because of all the bull shit and mud slinging that is going on there concerning the election. I have been struggling with deciding who to vote for this November. I am hoping that the up and coming televised debates will help me make a decision by then. Both parties have good and bad in them and as far as I’m concerned they are both full of shit. I hate having to decide which is the lessor of two evils. It just doesn’t seem right to me. But I am going to vote, I promise you that.

Halloween

With Halloween coming up here soon I’ve been thinking about many of the Halloween festivities of my youth. My own memories of Halloween are really of all the great fun, year after year as I was growing up in the suburbs on the east coast. We lived in an established neighborhood and the parents didn’t worry about letting the kids head out to go door to door for the night. We had to eat dinner first – it was always at 6:00 pm sharp. Then we bolted out the door to catch up with our friends and we had to be home before 10. We never had any trouble with other kids or any fucking perverts. It was always a lot of fun back in the day. We weren’t really thrilled with getting an apple put in our trick or treat bags, but at least we were not afraid to eat the damn thing for fear of a razor blade or some other type of shit being hidden in it.

Things have sure changed. There is no fucking way I would allow my kids to go out on their own, that is if I had any kids, which I don’t.  If they went out, I’d be right there along side with them. I worry about perverts but worry more about gangs of teens and even shootings in some parts of town. I’d walk the streets with my kids and carry the flashlight, and I’d stay at the end of the driveway to let them go to the door on their own. But we all would most definitely go out together and stay together the entire time, and if we don’t know who lives in the house we would just walk on by.

 

Cold & Hot

It is only the beginning of September for God’s sake but it’s so fucking cold here this last week and it seems  that nothing gets me warm. The wind has been blowing hard since yesterday morning. At least there is no snow on the ground, but it sure is a gloomy and depressing Monday. Mondays are hard enough, why the good lord wants me to be even more miserable than usual, I just don’t understand.

I think tonight will be a good time to bake some Toll House cookies and sit my ass down in a hot bubble bath with a cup of hot chocolate and warm cookies. Maybe I’ll post the cookie recipe here when I find it. I hope it is still on the bag of chocolate chips, but if they ever change the bag design and leave off the recipe it would be devastating. But then again I’m sure that I could find it online if I took the time and effort to.  It really pissed me off when you go to find something that has always been available (this Toll House Cookie recipe is a fine example) and puff all of a sudden it’s just gone. Not everyone has a fucking computer that they can drop everything and turn to. I don’t know what the fuck I would do with my computer, both at work and at home.
