trials of a troll trying to get by in a world messed up by humankind [ I'M AT UTC -5]

There was a song from the 60’s…War what is it good for…absolutely nothing…say it again…to paraphrase…Cats what are they good for…absolutely nothing…save that I am addicted to the little furballs…

You never own a cat…no one has ever owned a cat…they permit you to occupy the same space that they do…provided that you have an opposable thumb and are able to open cans and bags of food and keep water in their bowl…when you would like their attention forget about it…but when they require yours you might just as well give up what your doing and attend to them because they won’t really give you a choice…

Cats…an addiction

Okay so the official count for snow was 21”…but that is at the weather station which is at the airport and 10 miles away…and in a lake effect storm that could be several inches difference…if all we got was 21 inches then I’m well under 5 foot tall…and I ain’t…

The first forecast I heard for overnight for today was 5-9” of new snow…then it was updated to 12-18”…well we got somewhere between 30 and 36” of new snow in about 7 hours…what a mess…

I think I’ve finally become that which as a teen/young adult always drove me nuts. I would be in the presence of older adults and the way they talked about the “good old days”…drove me nuts…(a pause in this as cat Aggie demands my attention)…

But the older I get…the less I understand the world as it is…(follows is a list in no particular order)

1-Piercing of the body other then in ears…(and I even question that)

२-Body art…tattoos…and in general the names of people you probably won’t be with for more then 3 weeks…and in particular what is common referred to as a “tramp stamp”.

3-People who don’t fully understand that the “right on red” law in NYS does not mean I’m fair game in a crosswalk if I get the walk icon…

4-People who are in a restaurant…okay fast food place…. (Note except for one I avoid them…prefer and enjoyed the local owned eateries better)…but think they have the right to:

A-talk at the top of their lungs

B-use whatever foul language they chose

C-comment on everyone else in the place…negatively of course…

(The rant light is off)

Oh happy days…I can finally write an entry without using a hammer on my keyboard. Had several keys that were either dead or dying…but picked up a new keyboard…and things are good again…

Very cold here…-20 something F…but not really a bad day…very little wind and sunny…

It’s been a very old fashion winter…lots of snow…lots of cold…lots of wind…reminds me of winters as a lad…global warming…at this point I don’t think so…
