I was trying to do a jig-saw-puzzle, while CAROLINE had been navigating the incredibly messy, twisted, and choked street and highway system of EUGENE, but  it was rush-hours. During rush hours, nothing moves, so no one bothers to navigate. you just sit in crowds of cars for hours.I always bring a book,and now I was trying jig-saw-puzzles. They were hard!emo21.gif bakstab

“ok. WHAT’S A four letter word for “town”??” I asked.”SHIT,” answered  Caroline, yawning. “AWW, ” I said, “Yer just pissed off cause the city and county is cutting my front of my place off, for a 5-lane highway(again) especially since Lane County did the same thing to my parents, many years ago, and turned it all into shit.” “Yeah, “replied Caroline, breathing in more carbon monoxide then was good for her.”The answer is still shit.”10608.gifredhotrod

“I know,I know,”I replied, “That’s why my doctor had to write a prescription for temporary pain-killer,cause of my massive migraines.” “You haven’t had such migraines, since your dad murdered someone,” she answered, coughing. “I wish you wouldn’t say that outloud,”I mumbled,looking around,”I don’t want anyone to hear that.No one but me probably, knows about that.”  “Too bad he’s not alive,”she hissed,” just to get the Mayor,and city and county govt. members,” –“–and THEN what would we do with him?” I replied, POed.” “Let him loose on the Oregon legislature,” she chuckled.d9ba9003292ee54c1b40c7f989413d67-d4o5ol2badthinkinggif

“You’re irrepressible,” I said, “Don’t you know, you can’t settle all  problems with violence?” “You are right,” she returned, solemly,”It’s only MOST PROBLEMS that get settled with violence.You wanta know how many wars are going on, right now,over the world?” “Too many,” I agreed.”I even got some studying on statistics the other day,” she replied further,”it was about, How are most conflicting arguments in the world decided?” “And?” “It came out a low percentage by laws, and a huge percentage, most, by violence or war.”0014

“Not only that,” she continued,” the higher the population, of any area, the more likely any problem would get analprobe wars will be.–at this point, the predictions say, we’re due for a huge whopping WW3 that will make WW2 look like a cake-walk.” “SHIT.”guns009_2

“‘Yes,” Caroline went on,”And for some reason, LOCAL VIOLENCE gets worse, too.” “That poor guy that killed someone, the other day,” I said,”He was a soldier with bad PTSD.”  “All that happened, was, someone confronted him over a minor thing, & he went ballistic. Shot people.” “UGH, I guess, I better not confront Mayor Pussy, she might be like Hillary.–a past with murder. Women can do it, too, and she gets manic sometimes.” “I wouldn’t call it manic,how bout “maniacal”? “OK, ok, but every time you emailed her, she got hysterical kind of nuts, returning an answer!!”gangster

“I know,” returned Caroline,” so I never asked her a question about the govt,. or anything to do with “public policy,” she bit my head off, like I was attacking her!”  “Like paranoid?” “Absolutely!!I would be afraid to run against her, she digs up tons of dirt about you, in your past, so you have to be PURE to run for office!”1238.gif Tinkerbelle

“I don’t think we should talk about her,”I said, looking around.”Somehow, everything gets “around” in this town.EVERYTHING!” I glanced around, to see what other vehicles were doing; “I don’t feel SAFE saying anything any more!!” I looked closely, at the car in front of us; was he fiddling with his radio, or was that a tape-recorder?”You say the word “bomb” and a big machine, that hears every single thing, in the USA, (I saw a whole science article on it) ,suddenly listens, when it picks up “sensitive words,” like “terrorism,”bomb, ect. and suddenly, you’re on Govt, Candid-Camera-Phone!”google_is_your_friend_sign_by_mirz123-d6m8j22

“That was on old “Outer Limits,”” she corrected me.”NO,” I answered her, “I read it, long ago, its real!! It was in a real. factual article, as truth!!!” “What happened to it?” asked  Caroline, curious.”I don’t know; no one ever said, and the article just vanished. No one talked about it anymore.”I finished.panicatthediscoplz

“Like the cure for Herpes vanished,”said Caroline. “Yes, and the report on what caused breast cancer,”I replied. “And like the info. and witness statements that AZT never worked.” she continued.”–and the cure for cancer vanished, too.” “I only know that YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT, ” I ventured, “and you got no evidence now.” “I never could GET EVIDENCE, “huffed Caroline.”(Is that traffic ahead, finally moving?This is how L.A. used to be, when we visited!”) “IT is L.A.!!!” I growled,”everyone from CALIFORNICATOR MOVED  HERE!!” “yeah, don’t remind me!”super_smash_emotes_by_ville10-d38ms5r

We continued to wait, for traffic to move,.and one of us said,”I HATE THIS FUCKIN’ TOWN!” but the other one said,”We can’t sell our places, in Lane county, for enough money to move somewhere else–” “cause the value of real estate here is so low.”–“AND now the value of any place on RIVER road, will be  even lower.” “–but the value of real estate in Lane county,and EUGENE keeps sinking lower–” “__so we’re not going any where, unless some foreign fool comes along, and mistakenly pays more.” “Aint gonna happen, we’re stuck–” ” –unless we abandon it, and the govt. takes it over, so THEY HAVE TO PAY THE TAXES ON IT.””Absol_la_by_GoldFlareon

we sat silently, trying not to breathe in the floating gasoline;”How low do you think it will go??”one of us asked,”I think there’s no bottom,” the other one said,”But, supposidly everyone is supposed to be moving here??!”  “Well, les see, the Chinese bought up a lot of Detroit, in hopes someday the value would rise.  THAT COULD BE IT!!!OR—everyone moving here is drunk, or on acid.”  “Everyone who moves here, is on SOMETHING; organic vegetables, tofu, environmental-illusions, you name it. We got at least 12 different delusions people here, have, about stuff in Oregon.””–or about life in general.” “That covers just the university of Oregon professors and staff.”_llamaworship__by_caitievoss

“I know what they’re on,” one of us replied; “What?” asked the other.”You’re breathing  it now,”they replied, “GASOLINE INTOXICATION. its like alcohol, only more like LSD, or peyote!! You keep breathing it, everything looks rosy!!!–until it kills you. ” “Hmm..yer right.”auto_wos6.giftwocars

–but traffic ahead was moving, finally, we had to go home, get on oxygon-machines, and remind ourselves, we were so lucky to live here. (cough-cough–…if we didn’t mind the chronic asthma, bronchitis, and cancer, until we two could find SOME WAY to find a place in the USA, that still had

lets take time out to do, what many of us are doing every day, upstairs in our subconscious,


And we’re going to start at the very top, our pain and physical disability many of us now suffer because we have a 40-hr.-plus job,hunched over a fucking keyboard, ruining our backs, hands,arms, trying to make a living, even if we’re in our 50’s or 60’s,telling our friends”I have to keep on this job until  I’m 70, I can’t money-wise retire until ‘Im way into 70-plus.” — Our chiropractors are getting rich, and we’re getting maimed.

–And our friend looks at us and thinks, “You poor old delusional fool, you’ll die on the job,like my other 60-plus old friends who slaved all their lives, got taxed to death and died trying to make it into retirement. —There won’t BE ANY SOC. SEC. OR MEDICARE LEFT BY THEN!-ALL YOUR PENSION FUNDS’ STOLEN ALREADY!.”–but we just nod at our elderly slave, and don’t say anything.What good would it do?What can you say,to people who slaved to pay the fed,all their lives,and don’t want the awful truth?–that the fed govt. is a giant mouth, all teeth, and a huge canyon with no bottom?—and we’re spending all our strength trying prop it up?.


Remember all those idiots who knowingly injure,disable themselves, & we called them addicts? We are they, they are us.

(continued until i’m out of fuckin ‘pute-pain, later, and i type this in my brain)…






It was right before Xmas; I had sent no cards, except “E-cards” cause I no longer made them.And someone from the Lane County care-givers dept. had stolen  my old, expensive metal watercolor  set. Wow!!  She was introduced by a friend,I made her a cuppa coffee, and when I turned my back to use the bathroom, she was gone and so were all my expensive watercolors. 

It was an Oregon problem; theft, burglary, bad computer repair. Even hopped-up-on-drugs- computer repairman. It was an “Oregon-situational problem.” A nice way to say that Lane County and Eugene were full of low-bred, poor and itchy fingered denizens. You had to be very careful who you let in your house or apt.

And those were just the University students. The HOMELESS had their own currency; your bicycle, if you left it outside your house or in public. This I was told by an LTD bus driver.

“I wish you would say something positive about Eugene,” one person in the group complained.”OK, I positively wish I was living in Springfield,”I answered. “No one will give me a decent price for my place.”  “That bunch of tiny new houses next to you,” said Carolin,” are all sold except for one or two; and a tiny land plot is going for $75. They can’t sell em all, and they are cheap.” 

“You just named my problem,”I answered, swilling milk;”no one wants to live in Eugene now.They all are moving to Springfield.”  “Me for Nova Scotia!!” said one gin-drinker.”Its been upscaled-price wise,”  I  said.”Try a struggling cheaper state, maybe Southern.” “How about an island??” another one said, swilling fruit juice. “That, “I answered ” is hard cause the ocean being higher & the hurricaines, is drowning em all.  Islanders are fleeing.”

“South America is inundated by Europeans and Asians, where is there left to flee to, that’s not over-populated and expensive?” another fruit-drinker asked.”Nowhere; there’s no secret places on earth;  i’d live in a big desert if I could. Eugene is a main-fleeing-point.” I replied.—“And fled FROM, TOO, “commented fruit-drinker #1.”It’s this “brave new world”, all nations connected,by business,money,products, economies, and the Web.”I yawned. “There’s no place to leave it all behind; even Romania is gentrifying. the eastern-European nations are expensive and fled-to.”

Our little leisure group of Eugene women,. fruit-drinkers, milk, gin, and coconut milk grew quiet.But the planet was NOISY;TOO noisy. Unstable, and invading each other.The Russians invaded their neighbors. The Americans invaded the Middle-east; ISIS was invading Turkey, and trying to invade Europe; (and doing it,too) California  and NYC  invaded the Pacific Northwest; OR invaded Utah and the Chinese invaded Idaho, and dozens of other states, buying up all the land.

Foreign powers’ millions invaded the Clinton charity fund, and powerful Asian nations secretly invaded the US govt. and forced it into “deals.” ???  Don’t ask me,I’m not the fly on the wall!! Ask your local democrat-leader, and ask them How much they sold us out for.

Meanwhile, speaking of selling,  because of the forced gun control laws, Americans were buying weapons and ammo like crazy.Even moderate Liberals were buying hand-guns.  Obama was so impotent in leadership, everyone in the USA was SCARED. OBAMA was green-oriented, but not oriented to ACTION. He could dish it out, but he couldn’t take it, or DO IT, either.


Someone said that last remark, and we all started giggling. “Do you realize that Obama was the scrawny kid in school, all the ball-players beat up on? And no one would probably date him? — But he was probably the king of the Debating club, cause he was so good at it; TALKING? He could convince a rattle-snake not to bite him??—and them go behind the snake,and chop off it’s TAIL?”  one person said. HAH HAH HAH went the group. I choked on my milk.

“Yes,” I finally replied,”and we elected him PREZ?? of the country?”

That abruptly sobered us all up.

“Aren’t we going to discuss “God and the Creator” tonight?” one member asked. “Why” replied fruit-#2; “Who cares what’s doing it all? makes no diff!!” “We planned on talking about what God really is,” replied the other. “Better to just ACCEPT IT, ” replied #2,” admit life is bad, tragic, mean, and there are no happy endings. you die, its over.The End. And before you die, life stinks. NO happy endings  either.””Now that i’m old,” I replied, “The only reason for living is not to desert my poor cat. I’m her 2nd old owner.”

“But there  must be SOME REASON we’re here on the planet,” said the other-not-#2. “I know that one,” I raised my hand” to destroy it!” HAR DE HAR HAR!! “wELL, WE’RE ACCOMPLISHING THAT,” SNICKERED cAROLIN,”lOOK AT THE WORLD; LOOK AT eugene —!!!”  duh.  😦  “Don’t you want to belie4ve in a God?” continued our optimist.”Why?? He sure screwed over most folks on earth; and a lot of poor animals too!!! God is a cruel fucker!” replied our realist.”When you die, you’ll go badly, probably in horrid pain, or in a pile of yer shit,or without your brain!!!”

We stared at her;”I don’t wanta remember my mom’s death,” said one.”I gave her a ton of painkillers,and brandy to wash it down;she couldn’t do anything any more.She was suffering.” “That’s horrible,” said, the optimist”.”No,” replied the kind one,”We made a deal; Her kids would not let her  starve to death,in pain,in a rest home,alone.Rest homes have no mercy.   We both, my sister and I, took turns taking care of her.  She made us promise to help her,when time came.” “I have my yew tree all picked out,”I replied.”___if I can find a good nursery with one.”

They all looked the question at me. I just smiled. “Don’t worry,” I said,” We ARE discussing our subject.”

And with that, the whole group had a big shot of gin, even the tea-totalers. After all, we were all kinda OLD, we needed it.

“You think Oregon will win against Corvallis?” asked the optimist, suddenly. “Hah, now yer talkin’!!” said fruit-#2,”THAT is an IMPORTANT subject!!!” 

And that;s what we discussed, finally, the important things.–the real ones. Not God, not Heaven, not philosophy, but things right now; the only thing that DOES exist.

NO MORE BLOG–SOFTWARE TOO SCREWED UP”– (but everything is screwed up anyway, in Eugene Oregon)



(representational piece of modern art, trying to represent GO DUCKS – – bought from Oregon artists)

The reason I am bitching and moaning and saying that I’m dumping my word press blog , are the following raisins: (snicker snicker).confidentwalk (1)

In the first place,I can’t find any way to fix this stupid word press frame on my blog, which is way too wide now, and I can’t fix it so that I can type on it properly.

Plus, when you try to leave the page,the sticker comes on:”You don’t want to leave the page do you?DON’T GO!! You will erase any changes!(which is what I was trying to do.) NO!! do not leave the page!:” and when i hit the button”leave the page,”it REFUSES TO LEAVE THE PAGE!!act13.gifbumpcrazy

YEAH. it freezes my whole screen, so I cannot leave the page! I cannot turn off the computer,or close it!!HA HA. WORDPRESS, you really fixed it, so no one can leave the page–you’re so scared they will erase their changes—which is what we’re trying to do! If we leave the page,we can erase the wrong changes we made, you dumpkoffs!! But you think we’re the ones screwing up!! So you fixed the “do not leave the page or you’ll erase your changes” so we cannot LEAVE the page at all!! We cannot turn off the computer screen!! Wow, what power and knowledge you guys have!! You made up our minds for us.  You wankers. (more raisins for you, snicker.)  I finally had to force the computer to close. ha ha. No, I’m not mad–yet. But I’m going in that direction.  🙂

That is a big bad Wolf of my WordPress,.org, totally un- read by anybody on the web blog. Which they did not warn me about, when they gave me a blog. They never told me, nobody would ever read it because it

So now I have the whole job literally of transferring the whole thing over to Which is still free supposedly. But, if you look up all your instructions for doing this, you may as well go out and get a degree in computer software. Which I don’t want to do right now I am too old and I would die before it was done. Plus, the arthritis in my hands would not hold up for that._boxer__by_jSepia

So let’s start complaining about WordPress right now.I think that would be a very good idea. In the first place, okay word press, why didn’t you tell me that if I, for WordPress nobody the hell would ever read it? And it’s definitely not getting read. It’s probably because it’s not a very good blog, but it’s also not in the mainstream of anyway that’s what somebody recently told me and gave me a message on the blog. Supposedly write from WordPress. “Dear lady, please transfer all of your blog over to Nobody is reading your blog at all because you’re stuck on! – You idiot.”

so if I’m that much of an idiot, why am I supposed to be able to transfer all of my blog through your witty and simple instructions, over to Of course that’s going to be very easy to do. Especially since I can’t even figure out how to fix my margins, so that I can see the updates sign anymore. Angry_Mob_by_Sinister_Starfeesh

HOW THE HELL DO I TRANSFER MY BLOG OVER TO WORDPRESS. COM? The good fairies are just going to come over and fly it over?…Fairy_Transformation_by_Zikes

And also that’s another thing; what happened to update? The little sign on your page that lets you update when you type? I mean, that’s supposed to be there, right? Or wrong? So how I update this stupid thing? When there’s no update? So you went and changed something else on this dumb thing and didn’t tell me, as usual.

That’s what I get for having a free blog on WordPress. It’s kind of like having only extended basic service on cable TV; you can watch all those channels, but believe me if you’ve watched TV lately, you know that there’s absolutely nothing on.’re not going to be able to get anything watchable, until you upgrade to a couple of movie channels. – And pay extra.

The last time they actually wrote any good TV shows, was when they had that huge flood of science fiction shows on all the channels. That was it. And I’m not going to count all the stupid “lost” episodes. Do you remember the way they ended that show? COP OUT!  That was an absolute copout. That’s the way you get out of not knowing what the fuck to do with your ending; kill everybody off. No, Shakespeare did not do that because he was a good writer, he did that because it was the fashion. You’re not getting away with that excuse.TV writers have no relationship whatsoever to Shakespeare.

and let’s not forget the latest fiasco of that wonderful series called “MAD MEN”. Did that sucker end or not? I can’t tell. They’re not making any more. But they did not say that! Or at least not when I was watching. So I don’t know whether it’s off or not. But it is off. Ended.and there wasn’t even any ENDING. Unless the ending was supposed to be, that the main madman went off into the sunset, drinking his little alcoholic butt to oblivion. That’s not much of an ending. And  that show was definitely not “days of Wine and roses”. It was all about very risqué old-fashioned underwear and women’s girdles, and nylons, and how women were supposed to be just sex objects in the office. and men really really liked it.

Aww, the good old days!! when men were men, and they drank lots of liquor and didn’t worry about their livers.

that’s been happening a lot on TV; TV series that end without a boom, or a notice that they’re ending. So you’re up in the air, and asking your neighbors, or your friends, “say, is that show over? Or are they just haggling about wages again? And they’re always late getting the episodes out say, about a whole year?  and is Dr. who over?cause I don’t see any new episodes of that either?

“Boy do I miss the TARDIS. It Looks just like that out- house we used to have in the back.”

now let’s keep complaining and not slack off. All right, I’m going to complain about something political;HEY THERE!MR..PRESIDENT!. PRESIDENT OBAMA! Do you have any excuse for THROWING ALL  THOSE PEOPLE  OFF  OF MEDICARE  PART D WHO TAKE PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATION?    (DARLING? Sweetie?)

You think we’re all going to be very well supplied by our LOCAL mental health Department and state government?and that all those schizophrenic and psychotic people, including the ones who are dangerously criminal, criminals, on psychiatric medicine are just going to be taken care of by the local mental health department because they have plenty of funds ? And the state governments are going to be able to medicate all those dangerously psychotic, and often homeless, schizophrenics, because all the state governments have so much money?


you know that  one of them already got that Sen. in the head with a bullet. So does Pres. Obama think that he is completely protected and immune from getting one also from a very very crazy psychotic person off their medication? The medication that president Obama himself decided to stop? Because it cost too much money? And he wants to put all that money into Obama care, so you have to pay thousands and thousands of dollars for your deductible or else you can’t use it? Isn’t that intelligent?

so let’s go on with our not slacking off complaint; if president Obama should get hit in the head by a bullet from a very crazy person or a very overly political person (not much difference),WHO IS he going to blame? Is he going to blame our local mental health Department, because they didn’t have to enough money to give the poor person medication? Is he going to complain about our state government because they didn’t have enough money for mental health?

No, president Obama from his sick bed, while his brain is embedded with a couple of bullets, is going to have to complain about his own program, where he decided to cut all of that psychiatric medicine out of Medicare part D. And that’s the truth.

WHY? There’s no reason a lot of our senior citizens are not particularly un – crazy themselves.after all, president Obama has really inflamed seniors in every corner of our country, by cutting $700 billion out of their Medicare. If that’s not enough to make somebody crazy, I don’t know what is.after all, my age is about 67, and I am actually riddled with neurological antidepressant medication, or else I go crazy, go down to the local gun store, buy a whole bunch of handguns and rifles, and ammunition, get a little training from the National Rifle Association, and jump on a bus to Washington DC.

who says the elderly are jovial and mature? I say they are not jovial and mature. You should see some of the people in Eugene Oregon – a lot less mature than perhaps Hades. I have known and talk to or tried to talk to, so the extremely monstrously extreme left-wing liberals, in Eugene, who have ranted and raved horrendously, so badly, that I think president Obama should start worrying now. And those were middle-aged or elderly people.

They still had a lot of steam left in them. I know that those people happen to be very angry about the extreme non-left-wing stances that president Obama has been taking, (according to them anyhow) and if you cut off their medication, they’re probably going to take the next flying saucer, gray rabbit bus, or volkswagen bus to Washington DC, and probably shoot your head off. – If you can manage to get away from one of your Hawaiian  vacations with your wife and kiddies, or failed foreign visits, and actually BE in Washington DC.minding the business.

(did you know that Hitler actually invented the Volkswagen bus? (The “People’s car”?)and I’m sure that he also approved of the Mercedes-Benz.)”that German engineering.”

I forgot, Obama; you don’t really mind the business, you actually REINVENT all the LAWS of the federal government in the country. That’s what your true job is. And you also REINVENT the Constitution of the United States. I guess that is a pretty big job. That’s why when people look on the map of the world, for the United States of America, they can’t find it anymore. It’s listed as OBAMAVILLE.

the funny thing is, I just looked up some history, of 1776. The basic reasons that the colonists revolted against Britain and went to war, were the following: Taxation without representation, by Britain.the British were taxing the colonists to death. Also, if you were a colonist, you had no rights, you could be hauled away, to prison or what ever, without any trial or jury. No phone call. It was legal.thank God that could never happen now.

(Raisins, snicker snicker.) Plenty of raisins.

it is true,that suddenly I feel lighthearted and light shouldered, because there are no burdens and worries and stress on my shoulders now that I have written this great and wonderful blog episode. It really does make you feel free and better, to get all those worries off your mind, and transfer them onto everybody else on the web.

that is, until I get plenty of visits from the FBI and CIA, if I can manage to get them to read this blog, because they now think that, as a senior citizen I am extremely dangerous. DARN. and the last time the FBI visited me, they sent really big, tall, heavy duty young guys, with scowls on their faces. all over some ranting and raving on the web, where people usually rant and rave and nobody takes it seriously.but somehow, these great agents missed out completely on all signs of the forthcoming Boston bombing. Tsk tsk. What a bad day to miss.

After all, nobody’s reading my blog!that’s what I get for Instead can never get any real terrorists on here, reading it, to make any comments.

but who cares, all that matters is, now I feel good. And relaxed. That must be the real secret of writing a blog it makes YOU feel better, never mind the people who read or don’t read it. They’re not the main purpose of it after all. 🙂

The day was hot, world climate change  was turning Oregon into Sacramento, CA. Little did I know, our new immigrants had already turned Cupertino into Asia–until Carolyne told me.Hot stuff.kanto___016___by_pkmn_pro-d5a3q8d

Imagine me,a cool sophisticate of politics and  culture,not knowing more than Carolyne–who was not swift in the brain dept.! Plus, little did I know,I’d been invited to a wild party, too,in the meantime;my monitor had crapped out( and no one would repair a great old Hitachi Mc 20 RasterOps monitor,which I would now have to donate to Recycled Computers,& they would repair it and re-sell it to someone else.HAH!)_cooking__

“That great old monitor will sell for almost nothing,and I paid a thousand bucks for it !”I said,when she dropped by, rang the doorbell,and sauntered in.”So why can’t I re-buy it back,after they fix it?”act13.gifwildnutscrazy

“First, you can’t buy back yer old donated monitor, catch 22,” she replied,” and second, go to the stupid recycled store,and buy someone else’s re-fixed monitor; everyone buys 2nd-hand pieces, you don’t buy new; the old ones are better AND cheaper.””Hmm..that makes sense,” I replied,”Everything new is CRAP!(Do you think they’d re-furbish 25-yr.-old Sony tv, whenever it blows?)”angered

“Hmm..if they could get the parts,” she speculated. “Then why can’t they cannibelize another old monitor,to GET THE PARTS?” I said,exasperated.crash

“For the same reason you can’t go into a diner,and order whole-wheat toast on the side,when it says “no substitutions” on the menu, without writing a movie about it.  Things do NOT RUN LOGICALLY WITH HUMAN BEINGS!!”crazy_mini

  “Except the Swiss,” I interupted.”The only country which refused to be on Google Map.” “Why was that?”  “The Swiss are very reserved and private,” I replied.”And a lot smarter.”  “Makes sense; consider their govt.”pissedoff2

–“Didn’t you get the PARTY EMAIL INVITE?” continued Carolyne.”That’s why I came over!–oh,yeah, NO COMPUTER!” she said, as I nodded gloomily.”Well, it’s tonight, over at Lynne’s big old apartment,should be a BLAST! Such a blast, you can fall easily off the wagon!”woohoo (1)

“It’s too hard to get back on,”I replied,”90 meetings in 90 days.ugh. torture.isaydanceplz.gifstovepipehat

“Much easier to stay sober.AA  really knew how to motivate drunks when they invented that; I’m afraid to use wine-vinegar on my salad.Or watch Julia Child cook!”drunk

I whispered as if some one were listening.”Have you ever seen that woman dump BOOZE in her COOKING?!  You could probably just DRINK her cooking, rather than EAT IT!”

“Yeah, it was supposed to FRENCH cooking, wasn’t it?” Carolyne asked.”Yes, the Happiest Place on the Planet! sigh.”I sighed.(I had long ago figured that one out.)7850giffridge

“I’m sure they have ginger-ale, 7-Up, and Cola at the party,” She went on,”But you have to smear on some make-up and fly into some party-clothes! We just about have time to do that,and just make the opening ceremony”.vuvuzela

I went into my closet  with any “party-clothes” left over from more than 20 yrs. ago,trying to find something that still fit.

“How about this long, thin, dress with the jacket?”I held it up in front of me.”I never wear it, but I can still get into it.”   She gazed at me; “Bright red! That’s a good color! Yeah, wear that, but don’t wear  that old Japanese-bead-set.”flower40.giffancydresskao

I puzzled,”The antiques?Why not? They’re beautiful.”  “I’ll tell you later,” she said,as she grabbed a new faux-pearl necklace,and fastened it around my neck.”These are great!  You can do yer make up in the car while we get over there!”party2

It was only while we were in the car, me doing my Lancome, and Carolyne texting while she drove, that I noticed, in the over-head light,what Carolynne was wearing; “Uh…is that embroidery on your tunic-top? It’s real new,isn’t it?”

“Yeah,” she replied during the text, driving in the dark with one hand,trying to avoid cop-cars;”’s imported, but so is everything else.”wosautos140.gifblupimpsedan

“I know that; its ok, it just looks a little bit–umm..” “Cheap and shoddy?”  ” I didn’t say that.” “No, I did,” she smiled,”It’s a copy of a copy,of a copy,of a copy,that was stolen,, that came from another designer, and there tons  of other stolen copies.”

WELL, we did make it to the party after all, despite Carolyn’s driving and texting. It didn’t take us that long, and finally we could see the large lighted windows of Lynn’s fabulous apartment, all lit up and jolly looking. supergirl2flirt

I had hoped this would be a good party, no matter what the reason it was being held, and it would get me out of my funk about getting old and getting – – – which in the United States is taboo for females.oh, and having to return, the return of the native, Eugene Oregon.

Let’s face it,after working and living in California  many years, the retirement return Eugene was very disappointing. It was not a nice little depressed town ,cold, and uninviting rainy as it used to be. Now, it was a huge overloads by freeway traffic, ruined little town.femalescared2!cid_50_3218548504@web142503_mail_bf1_yahoo

so many immigrants from other states, especially California, and now my little town was a lot more depressing , overcrowded,cold, and uninviting, and now it didn’t have enough rain” IMAGINE that!NO RAIN IN OREGON! The end of the world has come! rainbowsparklesplz

Carolyn and I  carefully made our way up the old antique Victorian steps, to the front door, and Carolyn knocked; or rather, she rang the old, quaint Bell, and our hostess soon came to the door. Once inside, the music rang festively, for some reason sounding strange to my ear; Gay partygoers were gabbing, drinking, and eating, and dancing away.walkinginlovewithaghost!cid_20130424022231_7854maild0@gmx

I still didn’t know what the upcoming “ceremony” was to be about. I didn’t really care; if it was to save the great white whales , or promote more organic restaurants, vegan supermarkets and such; or if it  was to promote giving all the homeless people in Oregon, and in this County, superduper colored raincoat and rain paraphernalia, bought in Florida. Just to cheer them up! (That has happened.)

as I looked around,and recognized a number of well-heeled do-gooders of the County and city; Lynn must have a good reputation,to sucker these people into the next fabulous cause. But, what WAS the fabulous cause? I’m sure that was the case for this party; it looked too expensive to just be done for FUN! electronicdance

whatever it was,I was going to find out soon.cakelickplz

Caroline was helping Lynn, and several people, get set up for the ceremony, and I wandered over to the food and drink, and asked for a cinnamon apple martini, with a twist; the twist was, it had no alcohol in it, but just a lot of fake alcohol flavoring, and cinnamon apple juice. It tasted pretty good for being if they could just make a really good fake Marguerita! YUMMY! Lots of salt around the rim. funsupermarketcart

I realized that this episode written by me, is getting dry and boring, and you probably wish you were at the party yourself, and not reading this stupid blog. But just be patient, my point is coming up, rather pointedly.2ndcopygangnamdancesecuredownload

as major Spotlights were set up, and our speaker, Lynn, was quite involved in Oregon and local politics, (for the good) was ready to orate, I finally noticed that the whole apartment was hung with very bright red hangings, and banners and long ribbons, and everything else was colored red. Lynn began to speak:happygreeceflag

“dear friends and neighbors, we announce tonight that wonderful new immigrant are now buying property in all the states, and are planning to build and move into communities and big cities, in Idaho, Michigan, Montana, and other places where they have plenty of room.  hooraystor06

“WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES! YOUR NEW HOME! WELCOME our new Chinese immigrant neighbors, who are soon to buy up and move, into our nation.” She BEAMED as she said it. I finally noticed a few smiling and polite Oriental men, sitting in chairs the the lecturn; one of them got up, and shook Lynns’ hand enthusiastically, very warmly friendly.doublehugplz

My mouth was hanging open in shock! Where was this on the news? It was nowhere on the news, or radio or on the Internet, or the television and the government said nothing about this! What the hell was going on?shakingshaking act19

I really needed a real, apple martini, extra dry, right now. So the mainland Chinese were moving into Idaho, Montana, Michigan, and several other states? And they were doing this QUIETLY IN THE NIGHT. Meaning of course, it was nowhere on any news, and the federal government was keeping its mouth tightly shut. Even I didn’t know about it, and I usually pick up undercover news happening, on the Internet._genie__by_Helen_Baq

I raised my hand so the speaker would recognize me, and said “you mean to say tons of mainland Chinese, are going to move into the United States en masse? And they’re going to live here? Why has nobody said anything about this? Why has our government not said anything to us?”ohnooo2ohhno

Lynn answered, with a smile, “I’m sure the federal government didn’t want to delude anyone”, she said sweetly.” Everyone decided that announcing the immigrant movement into the US, right out front, would scare the be – Jesus out of the main population;” and our main population was ARMED.I’m sure that’s what she meant.

In other words,if you’re going to emigrate en masse into another country, and the government and the people don’t have any choice about whether or not to take you in, of course the subtle and sensitive Asian way to handle it is this; is to not tell anybody you’re doing it, just do it. ohmygoddmonth0807

Of course the federal government is helpless to say no, and the traitors said nothing to the people about it. They’re too scared of the huge debt  that’s hanging over the United few people knew about this, maybe some conspiracy theory people on the Internet who everybody ignores.#2frankenstein

And Carolyn knows about it (she used to know a Chinese student who went to school here, and then returned, and she told her.) apparently it WAS in some business pages or real estate, in English online, saying that the rich Chinese were buying up all this real estate in United States.  eekIMOattack horror04

And since Australia had the same thing happen to them, huge Asian communities of rich people, left their own country and made communities in large areas of Australia, this was similar. The government went along with all of it  hysterical

. It wasn’t as if the federal government didn’t do things, every day, and the population would never find out about it, and to 100 years in the future, maybe.consider that Tibet didn’t know they were being invaded by Chinese soldiers, there was no warning, it just happened. Same difference!

What can you say? CHINESE shit happens.bigflyingbat  #2fridaythe13th

I finally enjoyed the party, after getting over the shock, that my next-door neighbors could very likely be profound communists who stole all the work in manufacturing out of the United States, and were now richly retiring in the same country.

no, I just couldn’t get over the idea that the murdered and burned up injured students, in Tiananmen Square, could easily now happen over here. Or something similar.because probably some of the guys who were involved in it, made it happen, were moving over here next door! YOWL!  horriblerunningawayanxiety act09

Lynn realized that I was undergoing a shock, and she said “I’m just glad you didn’t bring your handgun, you know the one, semi automatic.”befuddled

She said sweetly again; “these are friendly immigrants, and I’m sure they’re not going to make any trouble over here. It’s going to become THEir COUNTRY TOO! They would not want any tumultuous mistakes, or have to bring any well oiled Chinese troops over. No no, just be nice and friendly, and get along.” heartsalloverEarth stor20

“and once again, “I said to Lynn, very much needing a lot of hard edged dark chocolate, right now; “our good old wonderful federal government, is keeping us completely in the dark until the Chinese have already bought all the land, and sauntered over quietly.

“That’s really subtle! That definitely was not OUR government’s idea! Our government’s idea, would be to stage a military invasion of Idaho, Montana, Michigan, and other states, and drag all the Chinese in right under our noses.,and tell our population “they’re just more abused and needy immigrants, who need a place to live, because there’s has become too hostile.”wowwowowwmonth0307

(I guess you could call extreme pollution, and brown air, and a didactic severe government, a hostile environment.),hey, but who made that come about, anyway? It’s not like it’s our problem or fault!)3or4thhitler

I decided real apple martinis might be a good idea right now; even 90 meetings in 90 days would be that devastating, as this shock.”screw them the apple martinis, trot out all the really strong margaritas, with plenty of salt!”  backstab

as I looked over the buffet table, I could see that most of it was very good wonderful Chinese food, not American style; it tasted divine. But what was I eating, octopus? Whale?

And the real kicker was, something I had known about the Chinese for a long time; there behind the bar were crates and a large refrigerator full of sparkling cider, the nonalcoholic drink that all huge traditional Chinese get-togethers, drink, because they can’t really drink alcohol.

(We had a friend one time in San Francisco, who used to be, once, Ms. San Francisco, she drank a bit, and wound up with very red and bloodshot eyes from it.and she said, as we left that evening at the door “oh yes, Chinese can’t drink!”)

I decided I should meet some of the stately and friendly Asian guys who Lynn had introduced, and who were some of the forerunners of our little invasion force.

They were really nice guys, and one of them wanted to know “do you have any strip clubs here? Do you have any “naughty Kitty” bungalows?”

I answered, “I know they have strip clubs in Springfield, right next door to us, but I don’t know what a “naughty Kitty” bungalow is. You mean, a CAT HOUSE?”he nodded his head vigorously, very happy. “Oh yes, CAT KITTY – HOUSE! You got?”

I paused for a moment, because “HELLO KITTY!” Had suddenly taken on a whole new meaning.

Caroline finally took care of that request herself, because she knew her way around Springfield, and Eugene.MEOW! I later on said to her”Caroline, for sure none of them are going to be moving into Eugene or Oregon, are they? Don’t they know that this place is a wreck?”

“I don’t think they’re going to go to live anywhere in Oregon,”she replied.” They’re looking for much better accommodations than this state have got.” but she looked around at the buffet table,and said “they have quite a few delicacies here, you can’t get in the United States.”

“Yes, I know what you mean; they’re called RICH ASIAN GUYS LOOKING FOR NOOKIE!”, I murmured, finally finding the 100-year-old duck eggs. They looked fantastic – and really fresh.”just as a friendly gesture,” I continued, “I wonder if they could give me some leads on how to replace my mother’s very old Dragon tea set, which is now a antique; it was stolen long ago, and I’d love to replace it, the thing is gorgeous with dragons all over the Tea set in china. It might cost me a fortune, but it would be worth it.”

After all, if you can’t ask someone from China, about retail business research, who can you ask?maybe these guys knew something about buying “non-allergenic nylon ear wires”, for people who can’t wear metal in their ears.”

“yes,” said Carolyn, “I think the country might change quite a bit, having all these new immigrants coming in, who were actually RICH instead of poor pioneers.”maybe if we’re lucky,” I said, whispering” those Chinese communities might saunter on over, to us, sometime  and start mixing their genes and DNA, with ours!” Carolyn looked at me funny.

She said”I thought you hated communism in mainland China, and everything they did; what are you up to?” “Well, I said it’s just that now that they’re all going to be over here, I don’t think we should be segregated. Look what happened to black people; they finally merged a lot with white people, and now you can hardly tell them apart! Halle Berry! Bellefonte!

“and since they’ve been using capitalism, manufacturing, and real Western business (well, Chinese business too) do you assume that they all are still COMMUNISTS at heart?

“Look at all the gall dang money they’re making, and it’s all private money, just like people in the United States. All the poor slaves in the manufacturing factories, stayed there, and all the rich people who are owners, get out of the country somewhere where it’s nice!

“they sound just like REPUBLICANS! And, come to think of it, DEMOCRATS! Who knew that the new rich Chinese, were adopting AMERICANISM moneymaking style? Just because they also LOVE and COVET wealth and power!exactly like most of US! I mean, the measurement of success in America, is, being successful, making a lot of money, and not being poor!

“Yes, I think they do sound a lot like us! Only, right now they’re being a lot more successful at it, than us! With all the cultural differences, were still the same human beings, lusting for power control and wealth, even if you have to move somewhere else to get away from your own country that you destroyed.

“come on, Carolyn,” I continued. (Those duck eggs were good, just like my dad used to buy.) “Hey, you want to try some of this duck egg? You use a spoon, and dig the stuff out after it’s been jellied black, for years or months.”she looked at me with a wry face. And shook her head.

and that, was my first awareness of the fact that we were going to have permanent Asian visitors, probably, because they needed somewhere nice to live with all that money, our real estate values were down, and oh yes; they were buying up a whole lot of bad neighborhoods of Detroit! They think the market is going to go up some day!and they’ll either live there, or make a lot of money off it.

00H, OH! If they bought Detroit, what were they going to do with all the black people there? I didn’t want to think about it. I really didn’t want to think about any of it!

What I was going to do, later on, as soon as possible, find very good Mandarin Chinese language lessons, so I would be ahead of the game.YEAH, who needs Spanish! Who needs to know what a Mexican is saying? Or Latino?but I did want to know what a lot of those Chinese communities were yakking about, in Mandarin, even in Cupertino California, where they already had huge enclaves.

it was okay, I didn’t mind learning new languages I liked it. Although Chinese and all the symbols, thousands of them, were going to be a pain in the ass. Speaking it would be best.

After all, people who rule the world of manufacturing and jobs, and international goods, wouldn’t you like to know what they are saying in Mandarin also?especially when they’re moving right into the country next door to you?

I already watched a movie with Chinese subtitles, and I memorized the symbol for “no”,it did irritate me, that my dad was bilingual, long ago, and he knew Chinese backwards and forwards better than English. Why didn’t he teach us how to speak it also? Okay okay, I know, we are not ASIAN, we’re WHITE PEOPLE; but it doesn’t make any difference.

it is true that people are pretty much the same all over the world, they all want some nice place to live, where they don’t have to breathe Brown air, and pollution, and they can spend their money in some nice yummy place instead. And they all want to be rich and prosperous.

So I hope that our Chinese brethren will bring plenty of YEN with them, because we really need it. We can always translate it into DOLLARS and cents! And maybe the yen would be more powerful than the dollar anyway; and we could all use it instead.hell knows the dollar ain’t what it used to be!

If you ever get invaded by another country and huge amounts of immigrants, for gosh sakes, pick RICH immigrants instead! It may all be very well about “we accept the wretched refuse into America”, and old stuff like that.  we already have plenty of WRETCHED REFUSE, and we don’t need anymore!

wouldn’t you rather be invaded by WRETCHED RICH instead?at least they probably won’t zonk onto your welfare and food stamps!indeed, I’m sure the federal government is going to start charging them TAXES like everybody else!
