Lawsey, Miss Scahlet!!!

The Rogue Speaks:

It's time once again for Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday and the letter this week is "L," as in "LAWSEY, MISS SCAHLET!'  Yeah, o.k., so it's a little poetic license, so what?????  Crikey!  I don't even know if it is "L" or "M"!  I am in a time warp!  Whatever!  Here is my offering!  It can go either way!!!!

Prissy didn't know "nothing 'bout birthin' no babies,"  but times have changed.  The 99% know A LOT MORE these days than the 1% about the mysteries of life.  I have found that out, in spades, in the last week.  The "locals" here in Brunswick  are so quick to come to one's aid, and are very efficient at it as well.  They are are kind and friendly, and don't give a rat's ass about "the bottom line."

We have been at this LaQuinta for almost a week.  It is clean, and well laid out, so when I turn the air down to 65 so I can sleep, the cold air doesn't bounce off the drapes or the bed and shut down.  The manager, Robert, is way cool!!  He let me use his computer when the other one was down.  His staff is fabulous!  They are friendly and helpful and KIND!  I just may come back here when I am out running errands just so I can hang out with these folks for a few minutes.

The "big guns," on the other hand--well, they are another story.  The right hand hasn't a clue as to what the left hand is doing, and sadly, they don't really even care.  AND if they can squeeze another nickel out of you, believe me, they will do it in a heartbeat.  Hmmmm--Kind of like the federal government!  This is the perfect time for me to interject that if you vote for Romney (the current Sara Palin clone), you are in for a LOT of squeezing that you never expected unless you are VERY rich!!!  MARK MY WORDS!!  It's kind of like the first George Bush--"Read my lips! No new taxes!"  Remember that???

AT&T wanted $100 from me today so I  could have a router/modem for WiFi.  Did they get it???  Mwahahahaha!  NO!!!  I told them I didn't have to go with them, that I could pick someone else, and they backed down  PDQ.  So the equipment is being sent to my home for free, but unfortunately it won't arrive for 4-5 days.  GRRRRR!!  On August 6th, I set the whole internet thing up with AT&T, but of course the different departments never actually communicate to one another.  That's the stupid 1%.

I have been on my feet all day, cutting and laying shelf paper in the kitchen because our stuff is supposed to show up tomorrow at 8:30 in the morning.  I am tired.  I am hungry.  AND Rod is waiting to get on this computer.

More later!!!

LOL I love when your posts are around mine ( as in we are to read 5 before and after and I do...'cause what if Jenny catches us cheating and makes us stand in a corner ? )

You crack me up.

However I disagree. Mitt is not Sarah. She was just way out of her league. Mitt is way smarter. It's just that when he opens his mouth bad things happen. Well, yes that reminds me of her but he's smarter. And that makes him far more dangerous

Sounds like it's about time for a dacquari out on the veranda.

Can't wait to hear about the new place!

I think Mitt is smarter than Sarah, but that actually makes him a little scarier....

xxoo,

I hope that by now you are relaxing with a tall cool something-or-other on a balcony or patio. I have a feeling, however, that after the sort of day you must have had, a shower and your pillow are about all you want. Just thing - you're almost into your new house - new life - almost done!

Wasn't it Mitt who said that the British had been our friends from "the very beginning." Did he forget about the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812? Or did he just not know? Or was he trying to cover up his blunders in London with yet a bigger blunder? Or....sounds like Sara Palin to me.

I was so tired of paying 150 a month for internet, cable and phone that I was like forget it I am done. So I figured I didn't need a phone, because I had a cell. Figured that I would by an antenna for my TV, and get a mobile wifi. Well the phone issue is great because I pay 40 a month for unlimited everything through metropcs(didn't want to commit to a contract) which I already had. The antenna was a one time purchase at 25 buck and seems to work just fine for basic tv. Lastly the mobile wifi is just as fine as my cable company one was and that was a 50 buck charge for the equipment(which is potable) and 50 bucks a month. So because I already had my phone the cost I won't include. The monthly cost now is 50 for wifi service, 50/12 for equipment, 25/12 for antenna, which brings me to a total cost of $56.25 a month. Actually just 50 but wanted to show a yearly break down to show you this. In one year I am saving $1125. I am a happy camper!

Moving is a major M. Just keep reminding yourself that in a few weeks you will be all settled into your new home and YOU will be one of the locals!

Jo said...

Hang in there Judie ... this too will end ... and cable/internet/phone is such a total ripoff ... I'm on the verge of wanting to give it all up ... except I can't survive with out it! darn!

Gattina said...

If I understand well you arrived at destination ! We in Europe all hope that this clown of Romney will not be elected ! He promises heaven on earth, but I doubt that he will invest his own money to help out of the economic crisis ! It's probably well "parked" in a tax free country !

Laying shelf paper never went well for me.

So good to hear from you again ~ You must be ready to move in tomorrow or today? wishing you well and hoping to see you again on here ~ hugs and smooth 'moving' for you ~ Rest ~ in between ~ ( A Creative Harbor)

Sue said...

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree about Mitt. Despite the press's demonization of him, I believe Romney to be good man with a good head on his shoulders.

Of course, it won't be the first time you and I have disagreed, and we always seem to muddle through it...

;)

Glad you got there safe and sound. Shelf paper - ugh!!It never went well for me either.

After the hissy fit I threw on the phone today, with the hospital pre-surgery admiting office, I say shop around. We live in a time when there are now choices and I will be damn if I cave in and pay more for services that cost less in the next county over. Adios! Stand your ground Judie! Go to bed early and get some rest. Don't push yourself to hard and fast. Remember things move slower down here in then South. Love ya mean it!~Ames

anitamombanita said...

welcome to almost home! Hope things get settled soon..no, hope YOU get settled soon! ;)

Andy David said...

My dear friend,
You are one FUNNY lady!! I can always smile when I stop by. Hope you settle in soon and get lots of REST.

Wanda said...

We just bundled our telephone and cable service with the cable TV company, something DH said he would never do because if one service is out, all of it is out. But we now both have well-priced cell phone service that is unrelated to the house service so we can communicate that way if necessary. The move saves us $60 a month.

Jenny said...

Hooray, hooray!

I see the feisty in your writing again and it makes me smile!

I wish I could help you cut shelf paper! For some reason I actually like doing that!

Judie! You are awesome!

Don't overdo it, okay? Nothing has to be done by tonight.

Hugs and A++++

I better never hear those people utter the words "You baby boomers...."! ACK!
This baby boomer worked her butt off for the past 40 years and I want my dollars I paid in to the corrupt system! I hate these pukes yaaking about "You baby boomers...." Because most of 'em don't own an original thought in their head! Kind of like a lot of the music today! Redo an oldie because no oe is smart enough to be original!
Gee, I better get off the soap box before i start in on Lance Armstrong!
Good night. Enjoy this awesome new life you have!
