Look at this here...(shakes head silently)

is this what our society has sunk to now?
I feel bad, in a way, because I have found way too much humor in this clip. I can relate to this woman in that I--not wanting to be viewed as racist or uncouth--would have removed any items blocking this man from squeezing his narrow butt in a seat. notice all of my motives are selfish. i feel bad about this. however, i would have wanted to cuss and huff too but would not have because of the aforementioned reasons.
i imagine the kind of day, week, year, this woman has had to endure. Apparently, this man became her whooping boy--unless he harassed her prior to turning on his camera.
I do not belive this woman is racist however she may be propigating the sterotype that older and senior Americans are crotchety.

Things I Do Whilst Unemployed ...

The Imus Incident was on the news and I began to feel bad--again. All those women are guilty of is playing good basketball. Imus seemed to be upset because they did not take the time to fix up so that he and other men who think like him, can have a more pleasurable women's basketball experience.
Next, the girls will be expected to not only put on make-up and wigs but Lollipops and stillettos!

Congrats team.

It's the Christmas season

Okay, its the Christmas season--or whatever holiday you need to

celebrate in the Wintertime--and all I ask is that you don't freak

out and get way too angry or too sad or go off the deep end in any

way, PLEASE.
It's just Christmas--or whatever holiday you want to celebrate--so

don't trip. It's like this every year so spend reasonable amounts

of money. Try not to go into debt. I'm planning on taking my own

advice (ya know, physician heal thy self) and I am making a budget

and I am sticking to it.
This season brings out so many feelings and emotions in everyone.

Sometimes they are difficult to handle. Some of us have had

wonderful Christmases filled with toys and joy and food and love

and everything. Some of us have had Christmases filled with

fighting, empty boxes and balled up wrapping paper from gifts that

were not even on our lists.
Let us adults provide a perfect Christmas Day for the children in

our lives. They deserve it. They have to put up with so much more

ick in this world. It has changed since we were kids. They have the

world and the war to deal with and everything.
All we had to do is live.
So please celebrate Christmas and the all important New Year with

glee but with not so much trepidation (\trep-uh-DAY-shuhn\, noun:

1. [Archaic] An involuntary trembling; quaking; quivering. 2. A

state of dread or alarm; nervous agitation; apprehension; fright).
Let us all put on our happy faces for our holiday and then fall out

in some kind of stupor in March or something--if it's all over by

then. (Notice I included Valentine's Day in all of this. It's a

long stretch after that. The first warm spring breeze is all we

have to look forward to after the holidays.)
Talk to ya quick,
Ms. McCloud
P.S. A napster gift card never hurt anyone (hint)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving and happy birthday to my sister-in-law Maria and congratulations to she and Kevin on the newest member to our family, Kiah. (am i spelling her name right?)
Now, if you are looking for my normal rant and soap-box murmurings, stop because I'm not doing it. We are now entering the holiday season and we all have to be greatful and happy about something. So, no more on-line whining about whatever. Be happy and promote well-being amongst your peers. Besides, I'm a little sleepy.
