Oh, dear mother of two scouts, if you wish to feel rancor toward me for attempting to collect the 11 weeks of past dues that both your sons have not paid since February, by all means, go ahead. You can just imagine my distress at the silent avoidance that you shower on me at the thrice yearly court of honor meetings that you deign to attend.

If you feel that you would do a better job as troop treasurer, then I suggest you resign your current position and take on the treasurer position. Oh wait. You don't HAVE a position as a leader in the troop, nor does your husband. My mistake.

Ah, of course it is the scribe's fault (that would be my son, dear lady) because he singled your family out to not record when your darling boys gave him money. Except that since he hasn't been to easily half the meetings in recent months, it was YOUR son who was filling in as scribe. And don't think I didn't notice the 6 weeks that got marked as paid for each of your sons without the money turned in reflecting that amount (on a week when I was not there either, no less).

Why yes, I think next year we will be instituting a receipt system for cash dues, since you cried out for "a system of checks and balances". It will, of course, be more work for the scribe—oh, your younger son is running for that position? well, good for him. But I think in the end, you will find that his having to account for every payment rather than relying in the honor system isn't going to go quite the way you think it will for you.

And you want to know how your son can get extra funds from the troop for summer camp? Well, your sons have to do more than the absolute BARE MINIMUM required fundraising. Boys who go above and beyond that get credit from the troop. Your boys have been given ample opportunities to earn their way. Too bad you decided not to take any of them.

I know my give-a-damn is around here somewhere...

So I've been kinda trying to hold my tongue... (and do you have any idea how HARD that is for me? LMAO)

But, I have a few things to say about recent news items.

First of all, Newt: "open marriage"... I do not think it means what you think it means. Also known as, DOOD! UR DOIN IT RONG! And yet, he's the darling of the political party who stands for (at least in part), "traditional marriage". Snort, choke, cough. Yeah, NOT.

Next, Paula Dean: D'ya think maybe instead of sucking down diabetes meds (which you are now no doubt getting for free thanks to that SWEET endorsement deal you made with BigPharma) and continuing to eat fat and sugar laden "south'rn cookin'", not to mention encouraging others to eat food with enough fat and sugar to drown Bahstan Hahbah, you might want to make some lifestyle changes? Because I got news for you, diabetes meds will not save your kidneys, feet, and eyes once neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease have destroyed them. Two words: fried mayonnaise. Just sayin'.

Finally, on SOPA and PIPA... I'm a big consumer of fan-produced vids and song mixes, all available on the Internet. As a result, I have purchased more songs, books, and DVDs than I ever would have without seeing these works featured in this way. Just ask my straining credit cards. iTunes, Amazon, and Best Buy are on speed-dial, dude. Some of these things, I've downloaded off of MediaFire and even Megaupload. And then once I've heard/seen/read enough to know I really want it, I go  and buy it. Am I really so strange in this way? If you take away my ability to "preview" stuff with the Internet, my bank account will thank you, but I will not.

Oh, and JoePa. I'm from PA. I have relatives and some friends who are Penn State alum and even boosters. I do not understand the cult of JoePa and/or football. Never did, never will. But I'm not going to give the man an automatic pass about the heinous things that happened on his watch just because he produced a winning football team. Nuff said.

Dear Coworker in a business unit that we live to serve,

Would it be way too much to ask that you actually make sure that these standards EXIST before you put in a OMGWTFBBQURGENT!!!!111!!! request for them and expect us to rearrange our entire work schedule to accommodate it?

M'kay, pumpkin?

kthxbye

Can I just say that I am unimpressed by the 24-year-old in a low-paying, dead-end job lamenting the fact that he and his (barely) 18-year-old pregnant girlfriend, who have nothing in savings, can't get a loan to buy a house?

Dude, you want a house? Get some frickin' money!

When you spam a boy scout troop mailing list with invitations to join you at MyLife, you do, indeed, need to get a life. (B's former scoutmaster's soon-to-be ex-wife has decided that she wants everyone in the troop to join her on MyLife so that we can listen to her smear her soon-to-be ex-husband.)

Madame, please do not try to drag me into the middle of your messy divorce, even via the internet.

Kthnxbye

To the jerk in the seat behind me on the train last night,

Thank you for not zipping up your backpack full of papers before plopping it in the luggage rack above my head. The continuous rain of crap on my head while I was trying to take a nap undoubtedly did wonders for my disposition. Once was forgivable, twice was annoying, thrice was downright ridiculous.

Are you by any chance related to the jerk last week who thought that, while working on his computer, the proper place for his elbow was firmly in my side? Because I know that his computer usage certainly takes priority over being able to share a seat without causing great discomfort to the other person. Do you have any sisters, like the two women with bags so freaking huge that it was only natural for them to use part of my lap to support them? Or the woman this morning sitting under the "no smoking" sign on the platform puffing away?

Thank you for contributing to the increased level of asshattery on the commuter rail lately.

Have a nice day.

No, Dood, you do not get to write a comment about the wonderfulness of Dubya (gag, retch) on my Facebook wall and get to stay around to play.

PUNT!

That Was Easy!

Being on Facebook has reinforced something I've always suspected.

I have not one freaking thing in common with anyone I went to high school with, and indeed, I still can't stand most of them.

Makes me glad I resisted the temptation to go to my 25th reunion last fall.

Dude, if you are going to pimp your new "wicked awesome forum to interact with House VIPs" in a LJ community that's all about House/Wilson slash fiction, don't freak out when people coming to your forum (who you invited!) want to *gasp* ask the *alleged* VIPs (who never made a single appearance that I can tell) what they think of a potential House/Wilson romance.

Oh yeah, and claiming that it's all because the *alleged* "VIPs" will get offended, when let's see... one character on the show is bisexual, the lead actor on the show had a long standing comedic pairing with an openly gay man, and the other lead actor has played more gay characters than Neil Patrick Harris. Yeah, right. *snort*

And while House/Wilson (or any other M/M or F/F threads for that matter) are not allowed, Kutner/any female is A-Okay, because necrophilia is so much better than homosexuality.

And finally, when you ban everyone who mentions such a relationship, or even asks a respectful question about why they are not allowed, then yes, you will have no one left in your little tyrannical ego boo.

I've never seen a forum go from intro to closing so fast that I never even got to post a single thing (I had a busy weekend away from the computer, but it let me avoid banning and see the train wreck to the bitter end). Way to have an epic fail, doodz.
