Ok... Mother nature is lying in a ditch somewhere... face down in yestedays lunch... reeking of cheap perfume and day old perspiration.
Unless she wakes up soon ... there's a good chance she's gonna drown in the WATER thats dripping off everything. It's like 9 degrees outside.
We all kinda woke up a tad bit late this morning... So I was in my house coat (with a big ol'winter coat on top a'course) at the buss stop with the kiddies. :)
I tend to forget about my hair - or what's left of it - in situations like that...
And then I make it worse by enjoying how friendly the other kids and the mommies and daddies are acting as we walk past...
Their "Friendly" nature is a repressed laugh about the guy (me) with all his hair standing straight up... ;)

Inland, away from the devastating result of the waters anger,
people go about normal lives... have gone about normal lives.
Hospitals operate... police confiscate... judges turn the other cheek
and lawyers rush around shuffling papers.
And millions of people live in conditions far below our lowest standards.
Yet their government can afford Helicopters and missiles for their Army.
On the coast... BILLIONS of dollars worth of international Aid washes over the sea wall, born by the cargo holds of so many thumping helicopters.
Food piles up and then is distributed before the flies even set their sights.
Ah... but what is this...
Children and their parents... far from their inland homes.
Lining up for food.
Why have nothing at home, when you can have Aid at the Beach.
Never pass on a good thing ... I suppose.
What is our goal...???
To rebuild South Asia?
To pour funds into those countries until their swimming in it?
Personally... I'm sickened.
Spread it around people...
There is no shortage of hardship...
hardship beyond most peoples ability to comprehend...
And not just in South Asia.
6000 people die EVERY SINGLE DAY in Africa from medical conditions falling from Aids related complications.
Do the fucking math. It's been 19 days since the Tsunami's stuck South Asia.
That's 114,000 people.
The tsunami is over.
I'm just saying....
Man... can I just say... the Canadian Cattle industry is so completely fucked that I can hardly imagine the consequences or what the hell we are going to do about it.
AND... AND!!!! Imagine... If the US ever gets around to doing the same level of testing that we do on their cattle... and they find BSE (which they will... bank on it dude)... well, I'm just saying... It's a bad time to be a cute pig.
"pork... the other white meat."
Yeah... work is still kicking my ass... I gotta get back.
