Hello dear reader(s)!
I have made the decision, revocable at any time, to no longer post about politics on this here blog-type-thing until such time as people quit being so stupid, or until after the November election, or at any time I deem fitting at my sole discretion. In other words, I will try, but if something YUUUUGE happens, I will do what I have to do.
I have made this decision because I have come to the realization that I am just adding to noise that not enough people on any side want to listen to. This happened when I tried to explain to someone that protesters being arrested at rallies for trespassing was, in fact, constitutional since they are considered private and campaigns pay the costs. I made certain to say that I did not endorse the candidates calling for the arrest of protesters and that I was simply stating the truth about the first amendment not trumping (no pun intended) laws against trespassing. I explained that campaign rallies are not considered public no matter how much you wish they were. I explained that using the same logic, if you pay rent for a space then anyone can come in at any time to bother you. I explained the only reason saying that is so that if someone decided to go in and protest one of these events, they need to know what to expect instead of believing this misinformation that arresting someone for trespassing would be a violation of their first amendment rights.
All to no avail.
So now, I will no longer post about politics. It is ugly, and polarized, and the information is out there. If we elect the wrong person(s) because of our refusal to see it, then I guess we get what we deserve. Maybe when shit goes REALLY bad for the next four years, people will wake up. In the meantime, we can all have a nice glass of Brawndo. It’s got what plants crave. It’s got electrolytes.
With politics no longer on the table, I have to figure out what to write about. This will not be easy, I have been using politics as a crutch for so long, I am not sure what to do next. Well, first things first, I could write about the redundancy of that statement. Okay, that’s done, so second things second, I could write about something very near and dear to my heart…pie.
Here in my timezone, it is PI Day. It is named such because Pi is 3.14 (Infinite numbers following thereafter) and today is March 14th or 3/14. In other words, a bunch of seriously bored nerds decided to assign a day to a number they can and regularly do one-up each other on by naming the next 100 or so digits after the 4 from memory and assign it to just the first 3. As if nerds don’t have enough what with the constant idiotic reboots of every lame-ass, second-rate comic book turned into a movie for the millionth time with slightly different costumes and lame car redesigns and horrible CG effects and bad acting, and nipples on Batman, and Captain fucking America and his Civil War with Spiderman (redesigned) landing in classic superhero landing pose after swiping his goddamned shield and internet porn and Ben fucking Affleck! (Excluding Deadpool, because Deadpool is funny.)
But, there is a good side to Pi Day. Pie! Yes, Pie. No Pi. Pie is what holds the fabric of humanity together. As nerds everywhere rejoice in counting digits and playing D&D, I will get to feast on delicious pie. I have a marionberry pie sitting on my counter just waiting for this evening. Take that, nerds. You may have your tech companies and sweet cosplay models and a lock on popular culture, but I still have my pie.
Okay, third things third, what else can I write about?
How about blog wars?
After my serious thrashing of Stephanie from Stephellaneous in the music battle, it seems she has called me out in an interview post on That’s What Anxious Mom Said. I have held off on round 2 of the music battle with her because I destroyed her so badly the last time around, that I simply did not want to bring that kind of pain to her again. Knowing the depression her beat-down caused her the last time, I just couldn’t in good conscience do that to her again. But today she went on that interview and mentioned me twice. She is obviously obsessed with me and I could have let it go, but of course she is trying to lie about the record of her previous smackdown. Despite the fact that her doctors have advised her to quit lying because she is so easily prone to believing them, she has done it anyway. And she has left me no choice. Tomorrow, I commence firing once again. Round two of the music battle is on. She has called down the thunder. Now I’m comin’ and Hell’s comin’ with me!
Fourth things fourth, I can write about the weather. It has been crazy. There was crazy winds yesterday. They blew down trees, blew over a couple semis, caused a bunch of power outages, made me lose the webs of inter for a while last night, and swamped some cars on the lowest deck of the ferries. Good times.
It is all because of the Super El Niño. Super El Niño has helped end our drought. Super El Niño has helped remove excess tree limbs and trees. Super El Niño does not let trucks stand in its way. That is why MyFridayBlog™ officially endorses Super El Niño for President!
Oh, that was political, wasn’t it?
