Many people question the name of my blog…..Shetlandponytastic. It’s an old throw back to a pet I still wish I owned. Needless to say, I was extremely distraught when I read this today…
Shetland ponies were first used for pulling carts, carrying peat and other items, and ploughing farmland. Then, as the Industrial Revolution increased the need for coal in the mid-19th century, thousands of Shetland ponies travelled to mainland Britain to be pit ponies, working underground hauling coal, often for their entire (often short) lives. Coal mines in the eastern United States also imported some of these animals.
This is cruel and disgusting. Ponies being forced to live underground and drag coal!!! What a cruel world! and on another note here is some fun stuff about gay giraffes.
Another function of necking is affectionate and sexual, in which two males will caress and court each other, leading up to mounting and climax. Same sex relations are more frequent than heterosexual behavior. In one area 94% of mounting incidents were of a homosexual nature. The proportion of same sex courtships varies between 30 and 75%, and at any given time one in twenty males will be engaged in affectionate necking behavior with another male. Females, on the other hand, only appear to have same sex relations in 1% of mounting incidents.
Every year around this time I realize that there is one animal in this world I truely wish the powers that be had skipped over. GEESE! I hate them so much. They waddle around, like overweight ducks, not quacking but making these god awful honking noises. They’re ugly as sin, which is pretty damn foul. There beady black eyes just ooze of evil and obvious satanic origins. Their greasy hides make them look smooth, but have you ever seen a goose feather? It’s looks like something that would fall off of Macy Gray’s head, a twisted, tangled, dead looking strand of BLEH! And then there’s the attitude they have. They act like they own the fucking world, just walking out into the middle of a busy street during morning rush hour or making a nest on top of your house. this morning I went to leave my apartment and what do I find standing on the sidewalk between my car and the front door? 2 fucking geese! One looked up and bobbed it’s ridiculously small head and proceeded to hiss at me. I rolled my eyes, just shut the fuck up! Then the other one gets all haughty and spreads its wings like it’s going to dive bomb me, please. It began honking and just flapping, but not moving anywhere. Fat ass probably couldn’t get off the ground. Of course there was shit everywhere so I will have the pleasure of avoiding that this evening when I get home. I hate them. They are miserable stupid ugly ass stuck up water fowl that need to go. NOW! Anyhow, I was gratified when I drove into to work this morning. Upon pulling into the lane that would merge me onto the interstate I noticed three dead geese off the side of the road. I could just see it, they think they are all great and mighty, storming across the entrance ramp and BOOOOM! They are taken out by someone who hates their vile exsistence as much as I do. Serves them right. I hate geese!
So the Aprtment search is on, and the results are suprisingly good so far. I realize I am a bit of an apartment snob, refusing to live in just any old hole. A lot of it goes by location too obviously. So far the contenders are…
Beechmill Apartments – Surround yourself in peace and comfort Keeneland Crest Apartment Homes – Save up to $1,000* (they don’t even have a slogan!) Autumn Chase Luxury Apartment Homes– Luxury living….without the luxury price! Sundance at the Crossing – Simplicity The Apartments of St.Andrews – 5 star living…..without 5 star prices! Bexley Village Apartment Homes – Close to work, Close to play, Close to pefect. and last but not least Creekbay at Meridian Woods – Simple elegance and superb design…with you in mind.
All the prices are relatively close, not too bad at all. I am looking foward to seeing what they have to offer me. The most scenic is surely Creekbay, as it has lots of trees and an actual creek in the middle of it. It’s also the one that’s in the most remote location, which can be good and bad. I can’t decide. What do you think? Base it on the slogans, say them loud and really excitedly to be fair to each of them.
Another day, another dollar. But at least today I am spending the organizations money. We are purchsing stuff for trade shows, and it’s actually kind of fun. Shopping legitimately for work. I really appreciate all the potential business owners I’ve contacted too. They all have been extremely polite and helpful, probably because I want to give them money. But that’s how it goes I suppose. I also like that I can do this communication over e-mail. I really hate talking to people on the phone, be it strangers or clients or what not. I like to be able to think and calculate what I am going to say, not just ramble on poorly.
So Easter Sunday was a total loss. I went to the worst church service of my entire life. The pastor was hyped up on speed and glitter. This guy was all over the place, like Richard Simmons with a crucifix. He stumbled multiple times during the service itself, messing up things like the Nicene Creed and the Lords Prayer. It was trecherous. The choir was also un-acceptable. They should just not be in existence. If I were Jesus and I rose from the dead and heard them singing I’d beg to die again immediately. Oddly, my grandmother convinced both my sisters and my mohter and father to attend the service, so my whole family was there which was nice. We were also all at the bar together the night before, also nice. The difference being the pastor frowned at me when I asked for a Jager-Bomb at communion (not really people). Anyhow, the church service ended. I fled to my car and headed out to lunch where I drank till 4:00pm then went home and went to bed for the night. Happy Easter!
I must say that Wikipedia totally filled my day yesterday. I was looking up stuff about Scientology, just because I was curious what the fuss was all about. This is the most cracked out “religion” ever. People go insane from it. It sounds to me like they bathe you in radiation druing periods of the courses. And they believe in Aliens who have lived countless lives. And that psychology is evil. Yeah, you have to give up your whole family and everyone who isn’t a scientologist to be part of the group. And you have to basically never say anything bad about the group if you leave them. Or they sue you. Or kill you behind the scenes. What a fucked up scary bunch of freaks. Scientology? No.
Other then that, my favortie shirt is reaching it’s last thread, literally. It has 4 safety pins in it, a ripped collar and small whole by the bottom. I still wear it though.
Since I have a computer in front of me all day now, I find myself checking me our more and more message boards about stuff I enjoy. Lostpedia has quickly become one of my favorite wiki websites which I frequently post on, and use the forums. There’s even a really cute guy who posts on there, he talks to me online sometimes, he is from Rhode Island I think. I also post at comixfan.com, but that forum is somewhat odd. You can’t say anything negative or you get warning points. It’s so ridiculous, how can you discuss with out disagreeing with people and saying negative comments. It’s impossible. That and I am 92% negative anyway. They then call you a troll and issue points out to you. I have 9 points, but the points don’t really do anything. They don’t kick you off the message board. It’s so stupid. I am going to see how many points I can tally up. I really need to get out more.
In other news i think i may be a little sociopathic.
