A bitch is grateful beyond gratefulness to have power back.
Lawd, have mercy!
My ass was in the midst of developing a massive conspiracy theory…
A quick caution to my newest knavish troll - I am Mistress here. If you crave one on one correction, a bitch can put you in touch with some trained experts in the field. Who knows, it could be just your cup of tea (wink). At the very least, the process...and the rod...will certainly teach you some home training.
That should keep the little fucker in prayer for at least a week.
As I was saying, the drama of a huge power outage came a wee bit too close to the heels of a certain Scooter B. and his great energy conservation proposal blah, blah and blah…which was to explore that energy source which our confused leader can not pronounce.
It struck me as odd…California and New York both experiencing bizarre black outs for prolonged periods of time. True, our St. Louis based drama has an identifiable source...but that other shit is strange as hell.
Y’all know a bitch adores a conspiracy theory the way my ass used to adore smoking (wink)!
And speaking of smoking…a bitch made it through the anxiety inspiring drama of the before mentioned power outage without falling off that wagon!
32 days without a cigarette...I hope my fucking lungs are happy now.
Lack of power provided me with a rare opportunity to experience the 24 hour news extravaganza after a significant pause.
A bitch is concerned.
My ass suspects that the producers at CNN are still infatuated with the embeddification of correspondents…to the detriment of actual coverage.
Being able to fly Miles O’Brien to Haifa…score him a family to hang out with and stalk with annoying questions during bombings…secure a camera person willing to live 24/7 with Miles and said annoyed Haifa based bomb shelter confined family…and connect this completely lacking in context coverage to the world via satellite is one thing.
Being able to educate and inform your audience about what is happening…who the players are…the historical context of the conflict…what role, if any, America plays in this shit…why it matters on an international scale…how it will impact Middle East diplomacy in the long term…
…what is at stake in the bloody chess game and who the motherfucking players are…
Yeah, that’s another thing entirely.
A bitch should be able to turn on the television at the top of the fucking news hour and get caught up. Not on the bombing of the moment but on what that bombing means.
Gawd, spare me from technology addicts jonesing to try out their new gadgets during a real bombing.
Cover the story first...add plenty of substance and liberal amounts of context...then layer on the frosting.
And finally, on a preparedness note...
A bitch and C-Money put our Post Katrina Bitch Squad Preparedness Plan in play during this power outage. Battery operated radios are the shit...trust a bitch on that. They are a must have for any Its Me Against the World Disaster Preparedness Box of Needed Things.
Right up there with rations of Smartie based joy...and vodka followed by cran.
