Dianne at Forks off the Moment and Jay at the Cynical Bastard have a couple of rants worth reading this week.
Jay's visit to Walmart the day before Mother's Day is a good read.
Dianne has found something besides the big-ass store to apply her considerable wit to with this post on getting Fiber optics in her home.
I enjoyed both these posts greatly. I wish either Jay or Dianne had been with me when I had a conversation with my neighbor lady yesterday.
She approached me as I stacked brush along our shared property line.
Neighbor lady: "I thought you were putting up a real fence"
Me: "If I could afford it I would, but I can't right now while I'm out of work"
Neighbor lady: Have the dogs been in your yard much?"
Me: "I run them off about once a day."
Neighbor lady: "Well, when you live out here in the country..."
Me: IN MY HEAD "WTF" we have paved roads, underground utilities and 3/4 acres lots, and you think this is the country."
Me: in reality, Smile....
Neighbor lady: "Are they doing anything in your yard?"
Me: "Just crapping in the yard and digging holes."
Neighbor lady: Smirk....
Me: IN MY HEAD "You and the Clampetts are a trip lady"
Me: in reality, Smile - and I keep stacking up the brush
OK, that's it for the rants.
