Air or green?

Whatever happened to good old air conditioning? Now we have to be "green" and go without or suffer the wrath of the earth. I have a clue for all you greenies: There are those of us who have never had a/c in the house or car or anywhere except at work. The boss at my work keeps the thermostat on the mid to high 70's all the time. He is expense conscious, not green.

The bug population at my home runs, flies, or slithers outside for cooler temperatures. The animals on the block all run past the sauna I call home with no shady trees around it. Visitors always suggest we go somewhere else and cool off. Sensible occupants go downstairs or on the patio.

I figure if I ever reach the level of income that I can afford a swamp cooler or (a slight shiver here) central air, I'll be a little old lady who is cold all the time and doesn't want it on. "Cut the thing off Brittany, I am too cold!!"

We have planted mint and several small shrubs in our rental home yard. If I own a house (ever) there will be large shady trees every place they can possibly go to block the evil sun. Shrubs or fences will guard my property from roving stray dogs and children. Big lilac bushes will send scented air wafting into my lovely open windows and keep all those crazed granny peepers away from my lovely silhouette. Also, I will have a swamp cooler or central air conditioning. I'm old, I deserve not to sweat. Anyway who wants to see a little old sweaty lady? NOBODY Not even me.

Messed up mess

Did you ever have one of those days when everything that could go wrong, already went wrong yesterday? Yea, I'm on a rant again. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Now the insurance company which has been dinking me around for over a year on the 31st of this month has been changed by the union to a new company. I almost lost it when the bosses handed me the envelope for the change. Then I thought "Well, maybe this will be easier with this insurance company." WRONG O. This insurance company has a no pay policy. So they don't allow bariatric surgery at all. Now I have to go back on to the first insurance while I fight them to do the surgery.
Maybe people who go postal have this kind of luck or something?? Luckily, I can only go up from here. There is no more down left.

me in the mornings

I finally found a picture of me I am willing to share.
Ah.. The natural woman. Why do men wake up looking exactly like they did when they went to sleep? Women have to work on a look worthy of the world. Damn the world, this is me, as I truly am. I have come out at last!!
Really though don't you think I look like a cross between an ompa loompa and spocks mother on crack?
