In Honor Of Earth Day

Let us all embrace Mother Gaia. Tightly. Around her neck. Until the bitch stops breathing.

No, I'm not kidding. You'd be cynical too, if you were professionally obligated to attend Earth Day celebrations in a badly overheated building, but nobody knew how to turn the heat down, so the windows were open to let the excess BTUs escape.

Mmmm. Them's some damned fine conservation of scarce resources, there.

Badly overheated? Is it still that cold in Connecticut that you need the heat on in the daytime? Hell, it reached 90 degrees today where I am, though that's unusually warm for this time of year.

As for Mother Gaia: I thought I might celebrate Earth Day by lighting a coal fire in the forge. I mean - coal comes from the earth, doesn't it? What more fitting way to honor the earth goddess than to utilize some of her earthy goodnesses? :-)

Meanwhile, please excuse me while I go hassle my internet provider. I ordered an upgrade to my service speed Monday and it hasn't appeared yet.

ps: Sounds like you had a rotten day. Sorry about that.

It's in the high 50s today, but damp and chilly. The trees outside my office just bloomed two days ago. Many trees in the area are still skeletonized, though.

I think I'll buy a sprayer of Roundup and prep my garden area. I'll dance around the area spraying while singing a jaunty tune.

That sounds like a good Earth Day celebration.

Or you could save a few bucks by foregoing the Roundup and just dance around peeing on it. With all the stuff you take it should work about as well. ;-)

Good point. The byproducts of the heart meds alone would poison almost any plant. Since I cath to drain it wouldn't be all that hard to empty the liter or so I get onto the grass without making the neighbors call the cops.

Not a bad idea SOB.

Took ya long enough to get back. ;-)

I have a good friend with a broken back (motorcycle accident) and who's paralyzed from the waist down, who has to do that several times a day. No picnic for picnic for any man.
