Tossed Salad Friday

~~The woman on the phone was talking, talking, talking, but she was no more than a slightly irritating bit of background noise. However, I focused fast when she said, “I told him, dating a vegan means he‘ll never have fun again.” Is that really the perception of vegans? Ethical eating = buzzkill?

~~A colleague said he wanted to “slap [his client] silly” after a closing. I was surprised by his violent semi-threat, as I’ve always considered this attorney to be a very kind man. Then he told me what his client had said directly to the face of the Sikh buyer of his home, and I seriously want to slap the man silly myself.

~~ I didn’t realize that I could have made the inability to buy anything a “mission.”  I just thought it was called scraping by! http://earth911.com/news/2012/03/12/make-it-do-project-meg-hourihan/

~~Someone online tried to get all lecture-y on me, telling me I couldn’t express my feelings about what Nixon did both to our country and at least a couple of generations with a smug, “There is no substitution for being there. Ignorance will always be in the majority.” Maybe the guy’s not a jerk, and just thought I looked too young to see the deaths that resulted when it turned out that Nixon’s so-called “secret plan” was just BS. Maybe he’s just a confrontational snarkmeister, or a real Nixon lover (is that an oxymoron?). In any case, the mere mentions in the media that the other day was Tricky Dick’s 100th birthday made me a little queasy.  And so does the troll that called me ignorant.

~ Mets_Mike-Piazza_2013-300x237  Mike Piazza is, and always will be in my book, a “first-round hall of famer.” The writers that didn’t vote for my favorite player on the ballot might be forgiven for doing so if they can justify their non-vote as being based on his poor defense. But the voters who didn’t select anyone and turned in a blank ballot should turn in their voting rights.

~~Yay, hockey’s back! And that’s just the reaction the owners and the players knew we’d have, even if they gypped us of half-a-season. I feel happy— and used— at the same time.

~~I’m looking forward to getting through this weekend. Then I’ll tell you all about it.

Have a wonderful weekend!  Don’t look back, ‘cause Melo may be chasing you.

I think the voters screwed up
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Re: I think the voters screwed up
But first prove there is a sin!
