we have had some shady characters hanging around


we recently had to hire some security to hang at the front door. some folks have been hanging around the store front before we open waiting to get in... this just cant be! so now there is a velvet rope to the right of the front door. keep to the right people!

It's insulting to refer to someone as a "bum." "Here honey, can I lend you a dime?" It's all I have after paying to fill the f*&%$#g gas tank this morning.

I heard on CNN oil may go up in the next year to over $200 a barrel. And "Asshole's" out there beggin' for more oil refineries, more drillin' and less abuse of oil companies by Congress. He's such an idiot. I would like to take that "Move To The Slow Lane" sign along CA freeways and bang it over his head a zillion times rather than the idiot motorist I ended up behind the other day. That just might work. Of course the Secret Service might think otherwise.

As to the homeless guy. "Hey buddy, stop by the Cafe. Gig will teach you how to play "slops" and win a big can of coins. She's good.

if you sit on the side of the street with a cardboard sign that says "i need money for alcohol research", you are a bum.... it is/was meant as an insult.

Cecile said...

Yup, I agree, he was a bum.

Suzanne said...

Cecile, you can't agree he "was" a bum, you have to agree he "is" a bum. What in the hell are you paying off those college loans for? Jezzzzzzzzzzzz.

Suzanne said...

I.V.

I disagree. It means you're a bit down on your luck, buddy. We're gonna "tussle," aren't we. When and where do you think that's gonna happen? The loser has to buy the winner what ever she wants! (Of course I already have my list, ya nutz?!) Have a successful work week baby...you're gonna need the money.


Love ya,
Suze XO ;)

P.S. We have to come up with rules for the "Tussle." What are we going to do? Play poker? Nope, unfair, I'd kill ya. Mud wrestle? Nope, too messy and I couldn't win with you in a bikini...unfair advantage, too many wedgies. Race backhoes? Yup, I can see that. And the winner would have to set the bucket down gently in a little square box 4"X4". See ya there baby! I heeeeeeeearrrrrrr winnnnnnnnerrrrrrrr!

Ooooo, I'm comin' in for the tussle! He's a bum, baby! I calls it like I sees it! There's down on your luck, and then there's bum. And anyway, lots of those guys aren't actually homeless. In NYC, they live in SROs (single room occupancies) many of them. And some in Section 8 housing. And in their free time, of which they have a great deal, they are professional bums. **claps hand to mouth** **said too much already** Believe me, I've got plenty more to say on this topic, but I won't.

Leah said...

By the way that was me! I had to fix an egregious punctuation mistake that undermined my diatribe!!!

he was a bum, he is no longer here... bums are not to be hanging around, so in fact since his presence is no longer withstanding he is, a was... and perhaps since he is no longer begging for money for alcohol he managed to take a shower, get a life and find a job... thusly he was down on his luck... odds are he is out in front of the liquor store feigning insanity and begging for more money. bums in the town north of here will fight for the right for a particular street corner. its always occupied and its a well paying spot. unfortunatly our local law enforcement cannot round them up into "chain gangs" and force them to work for a living, get paid and pay taxes. its not against the law to be homeless and to beg, but it should be agaisnt the law to recieve government help and health care if you are physically and mentally capable to get a job... meh....

and a tussle you say? i'm feeling quite sparky this afternoon... as much as i am sure that you are good at whatever it is you would like to compete in, my ego says that other than child birth and specific female related issues there isnt anything on this planet that i couldnt win at... taunting me in such a manner this week will only make things harder for you... im old, im fat, i'm mean, im an asshole, I'M OFFENSIVE and i know it.

muwhahahahahahaaaa.... i too went to college for six years, but found the school of life to be more fullfilling and enlightening....



have a great weekend! and i look forward to the bikini wearing back hoe racing!!!





leah, id love to hear your take on the issue of "bums". cecile?

Leah said...

IV, honestly, I wouldn't be surprised to hear you had a Ph.D, and you just didn't feel the need to flaunt it. You're obviously plenty sharp. Not just trying to flatter you there, buddy.

Maybe I'll do a post on bums. On my own blog, I mean. I really consider myself to be something of a bum afficionado, and we've got some absolutely amazing bum stories from our neck of the woods...

The bikini-backhoe contest is so Thunderdome! Can't wait.

INNER VOICES said...

My bad.... its been a long week. im also impulsive...

Suzanne said...

I'm going to change the vehicle. A tricycle. A 50 ft. tricycle race wearing bikinis and high heels. Leah, you will hold the starting flag (please). Why a tricycle? Because I can beat an "Old, fat mean, asshole," wearing a bikini on a tricycle! Watch me! Oh, and I pick black first. I'll be wearing the Victoria Secrets number from about 20 posts back and my black sling-backs (can someone please get them off the disco ball for me cuz I can't reach?). I'll need some nice cold bottled mountain spring water waiting for me at the finish line (I prefer Crystal Geyser). Why? Because I'll be thirsty after I blow by that old, fat bastard! (His words, not mine. Well, technically, bastard's mine.)

See ya all at the race and for God sakes, don't let him use the sympathy card. You know he'll try. He'll arrive all hung-over or still drunk or fake it, then get on his tricycle wearing his bikini and trench coat, weave all over the place talking to himself like Benny Hill, and everyone will say "Oh, poor I.V." I'll stop, wait for him to catch up and the next thing you know he'll take off like a bullet and win the race. I'll have not of that!

Okay, so when is this race?
