Apple Talk / I need some help here.
« on: January 18, 2013, 07:56:05 pm »
Can someone explain to me why I'm supposed to give a fuck about some football player's "dead" invisible friend?  I keep seeing it in the headlines which is clearly the news media telling me I SHOULD give a fuck.  But I'm fuck out of fucks so I need to live vicariously through you fucks' fucks.

So what's the deal?

Apple Talk / Meanwhile, in another part of Belgium...

I find this story to be both terribly sad, yet, beautiful, if in a melancholic way.  Adult twins who were born deaf, who have lived together for 45 years.
They were starting to lose their eyesight and would've been completely blind soon.  Rather than face completely helpless lives of dark, silence. 
They decided to die together, which Belgium allowed legally. 
Because really, why the fuck should a government get to force you to live when you don't want to.

This just in, Mexico is going to rescue the Twinkies! 

That was a close one, fatty fair food stall owners all across the county were collectively shitting their pants at the thought of losing their staple confection.

You may return to discussing your trivial health care, poverty, and middle east war issues.

How the fuck are you guys not talking about this?

I made voodoo dolls for all of you and jammed pipe cleaners everywhere, and I fucking mean EVERYWHERE.

Ask me anything.
But pass the Doritos first.

Porcine Rebellion.  The pigs are eating the farmers.
[/size]Normally, I'd try to come up with a funny quip or pun but I feel bad for that poor SOB.  What a fucking way to go.

Apple Talk / Brick Walls

Man has been allowed to come into being and molded by the same universe that possesses the cold indifference as to the duration and quality of that existence.  It is in this spirit, that it should come to no surprise that man treats man the way it does.  That any man cares for any other man, at all, is something of a miracle.

Or Kill Me / Some thoughts on this election thing.

In the past, I've written, I will be bold and say, some fairly strong rants around the Presidential Election.  It's been a topic that has tended to elicit some kind of opinion or feeling from me.  This time around, all that boils up is a big  :kingmeh: .

And not just because Obama and Romney have fairly ho-hum personalities, but because, does it really matter?  Yeah, okay, I can hear some of you screaming now,about how a Republican presidency will set us back to the stone age, or some such blather.  I don't happen to buy it, I think he is just Status Quo in a suit, just like Obama. He's running for President because he wants to be President, because it's "his turn".  It's a trophy for his mantle, a plaque for the wall, a blue ribbon for his scrapbook, he doesn't give a fuck about making anything better for us OR his base.  He throws out red meat because he wants to be elected.  Does anyone seriously think he truly believes in ANYTHING he says?  He's just another lifeless, pathetic banker who wants to accumulate status and wealth. 

Obama, if re-elected, will be more of the same, which frankly has been a snooze-fest.  Well, unless you are the unlucky brown, smudgy person to find yourself in the shadow of a drone.  He isn't going to make anything better for anyone because he doesn't have the temerity or drive.  He's very good at BECOMING the President.  He just isn't very good at BEING the President.

So, while I know I should give a fuck, I don't.  No matter who wins, it will continue to be a Washington DC of clusterfuck gridlock and political butthurt.  Nothing will happen, nothing will change, and we'll continue to be holding the bag.

If you want your life to get better, you are on your own.

Apple Talk / One doesn't simply walk into Mordor

A light-hearted skip, however, is perfectly acceptible, especially if you are wearing a nice cap on your head.

Apple Talk / Coat Tails and an After Thought
« on: September 24, 2012, 09:26:34 pm »
Just some observational venting,

So here where I work, my boss basically doesn't pay any attention to what I do.  On the one hand it's probably complimentary, having full trust that I'm pretty good at what I do.  On the other hand, it's his job to be my boss and to provide supervision.  But his idea of supervisions is bascially just saying yes, or repeating my "thinking out loud" suggestions.  Like this draft letter I sent him, I said in the e-mail, "maybe I should include this little nugget of info".  So, his feedback?  That I should include that little nugget of info, like he thought of it on his own.

I shouldn't complain as it could be worse and he could be a control freak, however, I think it's more likely the case he simply doesn't give a fuck because my work is the icky work.  It isn't the warm and fuzzy stuff of getting kids to drink less soda, or getting adults to get more exercise, or to build trails, or hand out stupid brochures that nobody is ever going to read ever.

But, by fuck, if he has a chance to glom on to what I do in a community meeting, like he's been an integral part of it somehow, by fuck he will.  Until he gets into infamiliar territory and gives me that pleading look to bail him out. 

It's all about status and importance.  About making the agency look good, and important, and THE BEST!  Fuck, I just want to do the work because it is the right thing to do, and I'd like him and the Board to take an actual and genuine interest in what I do.  Not for validation or anything.  Just because, well, it's kind of what the organization is supposed to do and he's supposed to lead the way. 

You can't lead by sitting around.

Sorry, someone reminded me it was talk like a pirate day today.
