Morons and, oh yeah, PEAS!

I just wanted to post a comment on Vicki’s journal about the “subjet to flooding” signs.  Is nothing easy in my world?  My little doggie, I suppose.  The signs are all over the Summerlin College construction and they are not  even temporary!   They can be folded up and carted all over the county.  Heidi thinks they were made in a prison.  I can’t bear to focus on them.   Trivial stupidity is almost worse than the Universal kind.

An appropriate random quote appearing on igoogle today:

“Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning. ”         Rich Cook

One of our accountants sent me a link to a “keep the Red Sox’ petition.  I started scanning it to see if I had already signed it.  I had, so had Heidi and Vicki.   So had half a dozen MORONS, who wanted to voice an opinion on why they hate the Red Sox and their tax dollars shouldn’t build a new stadium.  How stupid must you be to think that your “signature” won’t be used to KEEP THE RED SOX?   It is incomprehensible to me!  The depths of stupidity astound me every day of my life.

I’m think I just accidentally ate a pea, hidden in one of the bitty shell noodles in the low fat/low sodium/flavorless Minestrone I just ate for dinner.    I wonder if other, smarter,  people would view that as stupidity?  It is inexplicable.  It is irrational.  It is unreasonable. It is not up for discussion.   Once I began to suspect is was a past life thing, or an infancy thing, I have not worked on past life regression.  Reliving a choking episode might endanger my slim grasp on normalcy.

Why is perplexed not a mood?  I am quite often perplexed.  And what is recumbent?  Good Grief Charlie Brown.

Heehee. I’m so glad you were able to verify that the signs were not a figment of my imagination. You would think there would be at least one white collar criminal in the prison responsible for doing a spell check. Or maybe he did and is now laughing hysterically about the whole thing. Jerk!!! I’m very sorry that you maybe accidentally ate a pea. I feel your pain. Remember my soup on Sunday? I don’t think it’s stupid. Having been raised knowing that peas are poison, I think it’s endearing.

Neil has learned to live with many of my eccentricities but the peas thing is one that he just cannot stand! Especially because I’ve given in a time or two and actually consumed a pea. Now every time peas come up, it’s Pavlovian that I object which drives him nutty. I have to say, I think it’s funny how flustered he gets by the whole thing.

I cannot believe you have eaten a pea!!!!!!! You weren’t there for the soup, but I’m pretty sure it had peas in it, so I stopped eating it so that I didn’t accidentally ingest one.
