a strange sort of community
Crazy... August 26, 2005 - 17:20:03
Okay, so the former roommate evidently was bitten by a racoon. *laugh* What the really funny part (which is fairly disturbing actually) is that it hadn't crossed her mind to get rabbi shots and when asked she blew it off. My only thought on how she was bitten was that she and her ranger-boyfriend were out picking up traps (trapping is part of the boyfriend's job) around the bird sanctuaries and she somehow got the bright idea to put her finger in the cage.
In other news it's not long before I come back to Eau Claire - 9 days exactly but it's not like I'm counting.
The other day I was shocked out of my mind because I went shopping for a skirt (too hot to wear pants) and I searched and searched and the only skirt I could find that would fit me (not too tight not too loose) was a child's size 16!!!!! WTF! Children are getting FAT. We're having to increase the children's sizes to fit the amount of junk food children are being fed. I remember shopping for children's sizes and they certainly weren't THAT big.
Anyway, I have a weekend for nothing but getting lost in my bohemian-like-existance on the beach. I'm allowing myself to get this lost again becasue I just finished another turtle map after being bounced between the administrators like a pinball for the exact data that they wanted on the map. Too many chiefs; either that or too many indians with chief complexes.
The humor for the week is that my roommate and I went to go fly my stunt kite at Jockies Ridge (http://www.jockeysridgestatepark.com/ , the tallest sand dunes on the East Coast - check it out)and it's a popular touris site to watch the sunset over the sound/bay. Well everyone got a turn flying the kite and trying to keep it up in the air. When I say trying - they were smashing it into the ground after 1 minute. Well the crowd started the gather right around where we were standing and my roommate got ahold of the kite and it went wild...to the left...to the right...up and down until it went WAY left and started spinning very fast (stunt kites can go about 25-30mi/hr) within inches of the head of a small child for which the mother drove for cowering over it's head and dragging the child away. This kid was also about 8-9 years old and so no small feat for his mother. Later on that evening two pre-teen girls decided to lay down in the sand right in front of us and under the kite so when it crashed near them and a woman (not their mother) came running out (in a lime green jump suit) to us complaining how we were being destructive and going to kill children my roommate then decided to stick her chest out put her hands on her hips and respond "then why don't you keep you children from running under the path of the kite". We did walk away and find a more isolated place (although we were there first and people started to crowd us after we got there). The funny thing about that is that people kept crowding the area to see me do stunts with the kite so no matter where I went a small little band of children followed. Ladies and Gentlemen, tourist attractions are the next best thing to birth control.
Have a good one ya'll.
She needs to be put down *nods*
