Disconnect

This is how I am feeling today. I am tired of people and news and things. I need to unplug and let go.

I am mortified by the overwhelming ignorance that is running rampant in this country and I want to escape to a place of reason and calm.

Stupid people scare the shit out of me, especially the ones that don’t know they’re stupid. When I was 8 my Daddy taught me the difference between ignorant and stupid and I can handle ignorant – as long as there is a will to understand – but STUPID there is just no need for it.


namaste, asshole

Out and about yesterday Himself spotted a pro-wolves bumper sticker. This always excites me to see others who love wolves and such. As we got closer we saw several enlightened stickers. The last one I saw before the driver flicked his cigarette butt out of his window was this one …

I am not even kidding.

We got along side of him and I rolled down the window and shouted at him “WAY TO SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT — ASSHOLE!!”

Not the most zen thing to do — but it was better than my first instinct to jump out of the car, picking up the butt and flicking it BACK into his face.


Kindle

You know I love books, but being in such a small space there is not really room for me to carry around a lot of extra stuff. So I love my KINDLE. Today – I realized I loved it even more.

You can install a small app on your desktop (Windows / Apple / Android) and have just about any and every ebook, text file, html whathaveyous sent to your Kindle. YAY!!

You can also put the Kindle app on your computer, and smart phone — having a Kindle gets you some perks but you don’t have to go buy one to use it as a reader!!

Amazon.com – Read eBooks using the FREE Kindle Reading App on Most Devices


Weekend Recap

We had a good weekend. We are still at the mercy of the job and not yet on the road but I am just letting it go and taking this time to enjoy friends and explore places in NC that after a few years of living year I’ve overlooked.

I showed my 81 year old friend how to text and send pictures to her daughter with her phone. It is an old flip phone — I told her she needed a smart phone, she said “I have one, it is in a box.” LOL

Hung out with more good friends and had a fantastic salad at THE GOAT in Fearrington Village — you get this ticket, check off what you want, the gals behind the counter fill this bowl with your goodies – then put it all into a “chopping bowl” and chop and mix it all up and then they put it back into your bowl. Next time I am skipping the lettuce. I always say that then I always forget — after WLS lettuce is dead to me – I pick around it and it really is more time consuming. I just want the protein and the toppings!! =)

If you’ve never seen Galloway Cows — they look like OREOS … gorgeous Scottish oreos — recently some dunn belties were born!!

We also got to visit with the other Lynn Ann and her hubby Ron this weekend. *hugs* Always a good time.

I discovered also that Sonic now has SF flavor syrups. Plain tea was transformed into glorious Raspberry deliciousness complete with nugget ice. =)

What did you do this weekend?
