Monday Night : NEW YORKER Disgust,Gut Ponderings,Methane Highs, and More Beach Lust

Summer Ponderings Continue.....

*****************************************
Summer is not the time to have Sewage Woes....but alas it is what it is.Tonight I am still slogging through my Gut woes, and we have been Battling the Sewage Gods again. So that means waiting for the Plumber, and getting high on Methane Fumes...a truly lovely Monday.The Plumbers arrived finally and stumbled about the yard searching for the Out Pipe....It was an Adventure. So I have been distracting myself again with NO RESERVATIONS on the Travel Channel ( FOUR whole episodes- and oh Heavens- I found out that Tony Bourdain has a Blog...) and reading the Internets. And I have been Pondering.....

MONDAY PONDERINGS.....
(1) And the thing that kept burning my Mylanta infested Gut all day....That Damn New Yorker Magazine Cover. So I blogged it down below. I had to. Enough said. ( and I also Posted a George Carlin video that show what Satire looks like and sounds like...because frankly I needed some Real Humor , not "humor" by some swine in New York). Also below is the list of Addresses and phone numbers....you know what to do.

(2) So John McCain" does not do the Internets" ? He is "Learning it "? He has other people "look stuff up for him".....I am sorry but if Granpa does not want to go Netting , that is fine, but the Leader of Our Country should be Net Literate. It is not funny, it is about being part of the MODERN World, it is about communication and education. Most of the Older People in my neighborhood are online, it is not a difficult thing. Bush was and is Illiterate, so we are going to have another person that struggles with educating himself possibly running our country ? whoa.....

Tonight's Beach is Cape May ( both photos)::::

The Summer we were ten we went to Cape May....it was mystical. We stayed at an old Inn, with white wicker furniture, and yellow rose wall paper...and white billowy lacy curtains full of sea salt and dancing at the windows. In the Dining Room below , there were meals served and during the day we got to watch Live Theater in the round for children, plays like Heidi, Peter Pan and Songs from the Wizard of Oz. I had never seen Live Theater before, I thought they were amazing, brave and talented. In the evenings if you sat in the rockers on the Front Porch, you could eavesdrop on the "Adult " Plays, LIVE Shakespeare. I "heard" Romeo and Juliet, and Midsummer's Night's Dream. My sister and I would crouch below the window and peek in and watch the LIVE plays. For someone like me, shy and bookish, LIVE Theater was magical......

And then I had all of these wonderful FIRSTS in the Dining Room, Peach Pie with Pralines& Cream, Buttered Lobster (wearing a childish much needed Bip), and HUGE dill pickles, and French Fries drenched in Vinegar......If I eat these foods I still get hot and smell sand and a salty breeze.

And I read "Exodus" by Leon Uris ( which is how I learned about sex)......on the Beach...I was 10...I gave my mother a Heart attack....It was a Great Summer.
****************************************
Have a great Night....
Here is your Nelson Mandela Wisdom for the night....and then some Music..
"If the United States of America or Britain is having elections, they don't ask for observers from Africa or from Asia. But when we have elections, they want observers."
"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."
***************************************
And your Music....Micheal McDonald ,This seemed to be the right song for tonight.
"What A Fool Believes" ....



***********************************************
Have a good Night....there has to be a better Us on the Horizon....Namaste.

I think sewage odors are easier to take in the summer when you can at least leave all your windows open to air it out. FYI, sewage gas is explosive -- don't be lighting any matches until everything is fixed!

ps, I see you've added Antony Bourdain's blog to your blogroll -- FUN !!!

DK:::
The Sewage smell was so bad that it was coming in the windows...it was unreal...but by 9:30 pm last night I could breathe again...

Yeah I had to add his blog...had to and his Crews's blog is a hoot too...

i thought it was funny and showed all the foul lies the GOP put out, according to them thats what they should look like

I wish I could think it was funny...but I can't ...because I know there are too many idiots out there that do believe that stuff and that the GOP is propagandizing....

If it had been a Bubble over Karl Rove's head- now that would have been funny....

( btw I love your avatar photo...you with your little one- she is so so cute...)

lobster, Yum! Just the thought of it makes my mouth water. I had the best lobster I ever had the other night in the backyard!
Anyway you relax and take it easy. I hope your stomach mends and soon! You have plumbing problems out back. I guess you are not connected to the city? You just relax eventually things will turn around. I am on your side!

You make a good point about McSame being literate (computer/internets). My son jsut told me about the oldest known blogger 108 years old, who recently passed away.
Step up Grandpa.

Sorry about the sewage fiasco.... things stink enough around this country without having to add actual stench.

Speaking of bad smells, Obama's recent announcement has me wondering if he actually WANTS to be elected.
Posted on Sirens & my blog. Look for the upside down flag.

Fran::
thanks I will be over for sure...I don't understand some of what Obama has been doing , but I am trying to listen and learn....

Patriot:::
thanks...happy lobbys to you too...I miss lobster...I would love to have some....some time soon..as soon as my gut is better - I am on cold food for now...( and Real limited...)

The "bettr Us" exists just below all the sewage being flushed down upon us. A little perseverance and we will be free of all this shit. No?

enigma4ever said...

PM::::
Ahhh, yes there was some kind of Irony and bitterly recognized as I dealt with these methane/crapola fumes all weekend.....in synch with a larger

I believe in the Better us for sure....always...namaste.

skippy said...

enigma, you really feel that strongly about the nyer cover? cuz to me it's just a bad joke...

for the record, my wife agrees w/you and thinks it's tasteless.

enigma4ever said...

Skippy::
thanks for giving it a read...and listening..
yeah...I do feel this strongly....I don't think it is a crisis, but I do think that the MSM has gotten away with alot- and that they have to be held accountable for this kind of behavior....this is NOT journalism....Have you ever seen any of the German cartoons of the 1930's ? Very similiar.....in the smear the slur and it was also supposed to Boost Morale, "humor".....

Especially what they did to Michellle Obama...I was sickened by it...she is a MOM, a really good mom...and caring...and she works hard...she has done Nothing to deserve that ...( Look at how they Blitt painted her..)With a gun? Fro from the 60s...all of this crossed a line- painting them as terrorists..

See here in Ohio when Obama was here my son and saw Obama and also I went and saw Michelle...they are REAL people, nothing to make fun of...but when I went doorbelling for him...there were the Muslim questions, the "He went to school with terra-ists", What about the African Garb? ALL those questions do and did come up....

If the cartoon had been a "Bubble" a Dream coming out of Rove's head- it would have been so different.....

But read what I wrote- there is a difference between making fun of an issue, but what they did was lampooning TWO people, one who is a History making leader....

And it worries me that people don't recognize racial slurring when it happens....it is like after 8 years of Bush are we immune? or conditioned to it?

On another note I have a friend who is a muslim and he pointed out that once again muslims are being portrayed as unpatriotic and terra-ists....

I hope you understand...I don't expect everybody to understand...but atleast to look at it from another angle...

( I did try to understand it- and I did read Blitt's explanation...I am more concerned WHY it was done this way.....there is really no humor in people being ignorant and dumb enough , or dumbed down by the media to think that Obama or Michelle are any of those things....)

so I guess me and mrs.skippy would be sitting together shaking our heads....

( and yeah I sent it already..)
