And Now For Something Completely Different…

Fryday, 3 Conclusion 2015

…at least, something different here at the Funny Farm.

You may have notices a certain lack of regularity frequency existence of bloggy goodness coming from this direction over the past six months. The necessities of the current dire straits being experienced by Your Humble Narrator have forced me to abandon my $200 a month UVerse habit* and explore alternative methods of survival. For those of you who might want to try and contact me, for now, if you try and call any number you might have for me, you probably will get a message telling you that the number is no longer in service. You can still email me and I will pick emails up in the infrequent intervals that I will be able to find time and internets access.

I wish I had more to add to this update but I can’t think of anything to say other than can somebody please stop this ride because I don’t think I can take much more of this and I would really like to get off now.

* – quick note to UVerse – when I say I’m having problems trying to pay Comcast/Xfinity $170 a month for the all-in-one (cable, internet, and phone service) bundle that the original deal said was going to be $100, it would be advisable to tell me the truth regarding your replacement for said Comcast/Xfinity bundle. When your salesweasels told me, a year ago, that Uverse would replace my Comcast/Xfinity bundle with their own all-in-one solution for those services, I should have known you were lying from the word go. I am glad that it only took a year’s worth of a service contract to straighten this out. Now I have to scramble to find replacements for the infotainment feed that was streaming into my melon on a constant basis, or re-learn how things were in the before time, when the internets were few and far between…

Still Not Dead Yet…

Fryday, 26 Betteroff 2015

…although not regularly connected to the internets (I have successfully quit a $200 a month habit – I got rid of my infotainments contract with UVerse) any more.

Barely hanging on to the house and my sanity. It would be nice to be able to look forward to the holidays and the new year one of these decades, but the Republicants have pretty much screwed the pooch on those hopes, financially speaking, for the rest of my non-retirement years. I have yet to hear any sort of coherent reasoning behind supporting pResident Chump’s attempt to buy the White House in 2016*. And the rest of the Republicant clown car looks even worse. Of course they now have some scary Mooslimoid boogeymen to go along with the hundreds of millions (cough) of scary Mexicans illegally streaming into the land of the free and the home of the brave every day while Obama waves them in. But I digress…

Trying to piece together this year’s Xmas Mega Mixx, so feel free to email any suggestions this way. Also too any lovely lose piles of excess currency you might have lying around the house. Have a good turkey day and hope to be back soon…

* – Fearless Funny Farm Prediction: If Chump wins and becomes pResident, he will become a trillionaire but millions will lose their Social Security and Medicare benefits, their houses, and all their worldly posessions. Also too: four words that should strike fear in any sane human – Drug Czar Ted Nugent.
