Just a little bit to tide you over

I've got to take a class the next couple of days that will cut into my "happy" time on the computer. Since I don't have a job that allows me to waste time on the job on a computer, I have to bang out these posts when I get home. It sucks because I like my happy time. Happy time sounds dirty, doesn't it. I assure you that it is all pretty boring stuff that goes on during happy time.

On Sunday, I visited the foothills where I spent a lot of my time growing up. I walked around on some trails and did some trespassing, of which I supposedly was video taped and will be prosecuted for wandering on someone's cash cow--prime real estate that will soon be developed. It sucks because this area that is now being developed used to be my childhood playground in the hills. I took some short video clips with my phone but I forgot to get that all set up for the post. I will post it sometime soon, though.

The best part about the "No Trespassing" signs was the misspelling of "hidden camera". They spelled it "hiden camara". So, I stood there at the barricade and gave them a small discourse on the value of spelling things correctly, then ended my rant with "You dumb fucks". I hope that was all really caught on camera for them to enjoy. I'm still extremely sad that there will be a bunch of McMansions built in that area. People are going to have to be aware that mountain lions are frequently spotted in that area. Pets, small children, and pretty much anything that resembles a baked ham standing on two legs will be in possible danger there.

No one pinched me today. I am disappointed about that. I purposely did not wear green just so that I could be pinched. What does a person have to do to get pinched nowadays?

Will you pinch me?

I'll pinch you ;)

why are we pinching anyway? does this have something to do with St. Patty's day?

I like that you gave a small discourse on spelling, ended with "You dumb fucks." ha! Maybe next time you could tell them about the mountain lions and the danger their hams, I mean babies, will encounter?

NYD said...

I got pinched today for not wearing green, but the guy swore up and down the line that he thought today was St.Pat's day instead of yesterday.

The Grunt said...

Celeste~ Yeah, if you don't wear green on St. Patty's Day you don't have protection from getting pinched. Some of us are kinky and like that sort of thing, though.

Pants~ Not enough has been said about the dangers that threaten our little hams on legs.

NYD~ Where did he pinch you exactly?

Keshi said...

so many girls wanna pinch ya and ur so far away in the US *bummer!*



Diane Mandy said...

I didn't where green either. Nobody pinched me. :-(

Consider yourself virtually pinched.

Scott said...

Dude, I would totally pinch you but I am going to assume I am not the one that you would particularly want pinching you. Not that I blame you.

It's a little late, but I'm sending a virtual pinch your way, with an optional bagging and hoisting into the trunk, if you like.

I have also seen some of the delicious wilds of my hometown carved into estates for the ridiculously wealthy. Everyone think it is good for the local economy, but it is not. They don't shop in local shops or bring any industry besides the short-lived construction job.

I was unaware of the pinching people who did not wear green on St. Patrick's day until I saw that episode of the Simpsons where Bart gets pinched.

Outdoorsy Girl said...

I got pinched. And it hurt. BAD.
Too bad I didn't get pinched before I got pinched because now I have a nice green-ish bruise and now nobody can pinch me.

The Grunt said...

Keshi~ Yeah, only if I had this problem locally.

Diane~ Thank you for the virtual pinch!

Scott~ See, you totally get me. But, that doesn't make us gay.

Julie~ You point out some very important things about the true effects that these developments have on the local economies. I appreciate the virtual pinch. I'm not so sure about the kidnapping;)

Christielli~ Well, you and I both learn a lot from The Simpsons. This is a good thing.

O-Girl~ Who did that to you?
