A Rant – No #SnowShaming from this Alaskan Gal! (Cat Thursday too)
STOP #SnowShaming you jerks! This is a REAL ISSUE, not a twerk violation!
I want to give a huge shout out to my brethren in the South. Wait, the South is almost everything for me.. *starting over* I want to give a HUGE SHOUT-OUT of support and love for my brothers and sistahs in the South-Eastern states. The weather is horrific and this is my pledge to you to not throw memes and #snowshame you. Teasing, yes but I will NOT participate in being a douche-bag because you supposedly cannot handle a little snow and ice.
HELLO PEOPLE, snow and ice, back the fuck up and think about this. One or two snow-plows in the area… salt? Do you even have salt for the roads in Florida? Or are they going to Home Depot and buying Morton’s Iodized Table Salt in bulk? I am not kidding, it is not cool, asshole! I live in Alaska and I and a few Canadians know what real cold is like. Michigan and a few other states get cold, but not our cold. You know what we are pussies about? WARM WEATHER IN THE WINTER!
We are not used to this weather and are dealing with school shut downs because it is to warm. Rain in January, icy roads because of the rain and no salt either. WE WANT OUR WINTER BACK you southern freaks! (kidding, you are not all southerners, it is all good). What you call a snow storm may not be what a lot of folks consider it but, again HELLO? THE SOUTH, warm weather, mild winters… you are not suppose to be able to deal with a little snow. Two hours to make a twenty minute trip, how is this an OK thing you asshat?
Sure, the insufficient infrastructure is not really OK but I can understand how the transportation offices were not prepared! They should have scrambled after the Polar Vortex took hold and been ready, but I am not judging or shaking fingers. I am sitting here reading about my friends who ran out of fuel. They were prepared and still ran out of fuel to heat their home. Or my friend who just had a baby and had to leave her own house and stay at a hotel because their new heater broke down because it was not born for real cold. I live in Alaska, I am used to crap like this and am ready and the cold still kicks my ass. Psychologically this is a huge downer, everyone I know is is cranky and snapping at me because they are getting tired of the cold, they are starting to panic a bit and PEOPLE ARE SHAMING THEM FOR COMPLAINING!
What about the kids stuck on the buses for hours because of the traffic. Heck some of those kids had to spend the night in their schools. (see Washington Post Gallery). Those school buses are NOT HEATED FUCKTARD! Those kids were in REAL DANGER! HELL they are not heated well here, I should know I worked for the school bus company in Alaska. I got the job because I was told it would be the best way to acclimatize for the cold. KIDS STUCK ON BUSES IS NOTHING TO MAN UP ABOUT! OH I am so pissed!
So I ask you, before you get on your high horse and tell someone to man up and deal with it, take your clothes off and stand out in -40 degree weather and smile while a crazy photographer takes your photo, then go home run out of heating oil and stay in your house because you are trapped by the icy roads, oh and eat those frozen fish sticks from 2008 that were in the freezer still because you were such a super survival stud and were not prepared for the electricity going out and had to heat those fuckers on your car engine, if it starts. BE NICE douche-bag! 900 accidents in Atlanta ALONE, ummm this is a problem. If you do not deal with the cold regularly or real winters, you don’t know how to prepare and the southern states are just not prepared. You man up and then stick one of those frozen fish sticks up your ass after you send the #snowshaming memes out.. *grumbling*
Now on that note….
I had to include my cat, because well after calling all the jerks who are #snowshaming, assholes etc… I think I at least owe it to you to bring a smile to your face.
It is the first time I have partaken in this festive meme. I figured I would throw a photo at you to amuse you while I try to get caught up from being sick (yes still working on that). Plus I am revamping the site and it is taking time.. PLUS I am reading.. PLUS I am .. oh … I need to go play Guild Wars 2, I am almost level 40… PRIORIES PEOPLE! Asrielle here decided she needed a new coat, or at least this is a sign we need to start putting up the plastic bags immediately. But she is our Bond Villain Cat, maybe I need to make her own cape, what do you guys think?
This is a weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Normally you join by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). Today I am sharing Asrielle, the Bond Villain Cat.. BUT the meme is all for the love of cats! Enjoy! (share your post in the Mr. Linky on True Book Addicts site!)
