Just Keep Swimming

I've been meaning to get a post written all week but time keeps slipping away and sadly this one isn't going to be much of one either.

I was supposed to be in Colorado right now. At a cabin in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. For the first time ever i was going to meet up with some of my blogworld pals and we were gonna laugh, write and of course drink until the wee hours of the night. But life got in the way for me, and most of the others and the thing kind of fell apart. Oh, but I still get to leave town today ... I'm headed to lovely Guymon, Oklahoma where the wind always blows and the pig farms smell ever so lovely to work on a mail sorting machine. I only hope my favorite clerk, the one with the Horseshack laugh and whiny personality is there to keep me company.


I'm sure all of ya'll are sick of reading about my emails from Rick Perry's staff. It is clear I do not like the man or his version of leadership, but as expected he easily won reelection so it's four more years of slick Rick for Governor.

Adding insult to injury I received one more email from his camp. This one thanking me for all my hard work helping him win the election.


I am not participating in the NaNo challenge but for all my writing friends that are I wish you luck and happy writing this month.

 In other exciting news a friend and coworker explained to me this past week that he had to block me on Facebook. He said he was afraid somebody from his church would read one of my posts and find it too vulgar.

I don't really consider my posts vulgar and unless the church goes was already my friend they wouldn't see what I wrote anyway, unless I wrote it directly on my coworkers wall. Something I rarely do.

Truth be told I think my friend/coworker was worried I would talk about the time he got us kicked out of the strip joint in the middle of his bachelor party. But don't worry buddy, I would never tell anyone you groped that midget stripper and then in your state of inebriation tried to fight two dudes twice your size.

I do believe that is all the damage I can do at this moment. Off to Guymon, Oklahoma for a day of funa nd excitement.

LOL! Treat that Facebook blocking like a badge of honour, Travis!

Ahh, the classic block. Wear it as a badge of honor. You can always casual mention to him that God knows what he's up to....Even if the church doesn't.

Oh shame about the Colorado meet!!!

And glad to know all your hard work to get slick rick re-elected worked! :-)

Awwww blocking friends is not nice! :-) I'm so glad I don't facebook! I'd be banned! LOL!

Take care

I'm not doing NaNo, either. But then again, I never do. I'm a rebel that way. ha!

Wow, Guymon, it's hard to pick which five star hotel to stay in there.

I feel the same way about slick Rick. How does Perry - Palin ticket for 2012 sound? Nightmarish?

Guymon! Sounds kinda Jamaican for Oklahoma!

People get so freaking paranoid. It's why I hate them. (Not you, though. :)

Well, Travis, in reading backwards, tomorrow's post is about pole dancing and erections. LOL. I'd say, however, it is no loss to be unfriended by a humorless guy.

I have just installed iStripper, so I can watch the best virtual strippers on my taskbar.
