Welcome to Words of Mexy...
January 21, 2007Well, the holidays are over, a great time was had by all at the Plantation. Good food, good family and friends, presents, all that fun stuff.
The weather has been great, unseasonably warm, actually. It's been great for golfing!
I'm sitting here now, watching a drizzle of rain that they keep saying is going to turn to ice, snow and sleet. But I am not so sure. I am beginning to think the tropics are moving to me, instead of the other way around!
I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, and hope you get all the great things you expect.
As for me, I would like...
(Pardon the short rant...)
Our little town to get over itself and quit fighting progress in the name of "keeping our little town quaint." Quaint it ain't been in a long time.
Bring on the big buildings, let's be a real city, I want bars, and restaurants, and strip clubs, and concert halls, and more golf courses, and juke joints and all the jobs that come with them.
I want better traffic configurations. Four way stops rule! If you can't drive or walk through a four way stop without getting ranneth over, you need to be removed from the gene pool.
I want a real newspaper, that really reports the news. Not warmed over AP reports and the weekly liberal drivel we get now. Hire a reporter, for goodness sakes!
I want all the people in an uproar about our local TV channels getting blacked out on cable to read a book.
And while I'm on the subject, if you don't like a book your kid is reading in school, and make a public spectacle of yourself bevause of it,, read the book. Discuss it with said kid. You both might learn something (Heaven Forbid!)
So I'll leave it at that, and just to make sure I haven't missed anything/anyone, I'm gonna go get nekkid, read some Ray Bradbury, eat some trans-fat laden meat, smoke a pack of cigarettes, have a coupla stiff drinks, play me some violent video games, and listen to some loud-a** rock-n-roll.
