I'm Glad I'm Not You, Cus Then I Wouldn't Be Me

Saturday's Question of the Day

SLEEPING BEAUTY

A month and a half old and she started this week only waking up once or twice a night. Sleep, a wonderful thing.....

I've found out that El Paso has three seasons; Summer Winter and Wind! Dust everywhere, noses stuffed with dust and eyes burning.....

Rain, can anyone describe it? It's been 5 months since we've seen any. Each day I check the forcast hoping to see some chance of precipitation but to no avail. I doubt I'll be singing "Rain, Rain Go Away" any time soon.....

With it being so dry and having the wind even make things drier I am a victim to static electricity. Let me hop out my vehicle and touch something metal and WHAM, I'm shooting sparks out my fingertips. It hurts too. Everyone calls me a pansy about it, but it is one of those things that really botthers me. I hate to be shocked and I swear I can feel the jolt (I know I know, but it feels like a jolt.) all the way up my arm. I'm even becoming phobic sometimes as I just can't bring myself to touch a metal door knob. I almost touch it and then pull back, like if I get close I'll somehow nullify the innevitable. Yes, I laugh at myself and that leads to the QOD:


What thing that seems simple enough and does not bother most people, bothers the heck out of you?

Saturday's Question of the Day

Who's Da Monkey, a month old


Ahhh, happy Saturday to one and all. I'm spending the day playing secretary and no, I'm not shaving my legs. You'll just have to get used to hairy legs in a skirt.

I was reading about the founder of Go Daddy this morning. It seems he's in trouble once again and this time not for a new Go Daddy girl or a Super Bowl ad that just skirts the censors ban list. This time he's being blasted for a YouTube video showing him shoot an elephant while on safari in Africa. Now I usually reserve my answer to my own question for after I post my blog but BS this time.

Mr. Parsons is such a "big man." An animal on a reserve, chances are with at least one in the herd wearing a GPS locator, hand raised, fed and pampered losing their typical mistrust of man. Mr. Parsons chauffeured to the kill zone, handed his rifle as someone gives him range and wind conditions and of course backup waiting to finish the animal off if he should miss. Oh yes Mr. Parsons, you're such a great hunter. I'd like to spend a few minutes with you and see how far I can press your nose through your skull.

You're right; I'm pretty much on the fence over this issue. However, although I don't personally hunt, those that truly hunt track their game and then take what is allowed by law and to eat I have no problem with. To them, to each their own. However to hunt a penned hand raised animal just turns my stomach and that leads to the QOD:

What constitutes acceptable hunting practices?
