1. First the first time in my life, I took 24-hour Claritin preemptively instead of waiting for the inevitable April sinus infection, and in addition to preventing my pollen allergies, it has also prevented me from getting one second of sleep for the past four nights in a row. Now I’m at work and I feel like I’ve been whacked across the face with a two-by-four.
2. The weather was beautiful and warm last night, so a few friends and I tossed back a few Singapore Slings on the rooftop of Straits of Malaya. There must have been at least five mosquitos suckling on my exposed limbs at all times throughout the evening, because now my legs resemble the inside of an active volcano and I can’t stop scratching them, like a crack addict.
3. I received the following e-mail in response to one of my “Struggling Middle Class” articles:
I don’t know why I would do anything to help a Journalist from a company who panders to the beck and call of a communist leader bent on destroying America and it’s sovereignty.
Let me give you the short version. I’m a piping designer that has been doing this work for 19 years. In 2008 I was making $57 an hour and in 2009 in Texas, I got laid off for 9 months, then got a job in Phoenix Arizona for $34 an hours. Most people wouldn’t complain but I don’t see this situation getting better. I was on my way up and this stagnate economy along with more government involvement as well as regulation is overwhelming the middle class. There is no incentive to start a new business and this commy bastard only wants to create government jobs. Some idiots think that working for the gov. is the best way to get the long term benefits as well as an EASY kick back job with little oversight. They are right! Those are the idiots that expect the government to help “get them by”…
That is not my idea of the American dream!
I am 33 have 3 boys and plan on having more as long as having children pisses off liberals. The longer this president is in office the further I slide right. Government funded abortions, Government takeover of private banking, healthcare, and industry (auto), it is unbelievable! not to mention if you follow the trends the only people getting raises are government!
THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT ARE SCREWING IT UP FOR AMERICANS! WHY ON EARTH ARE MORE FEDERALLY EMPLOYED PEOPLE MAKING OVER 6 FIGURES WHILE THE EARTH CRUMBLES UNDER THE FEET OF TAXPAYERS IN 2009?
It’s call Socialism, Marxism, Communism. Whatever ism you choose this shit sucks and you know if history repeats itself and it always does it is the beginning of the end for America. You JERKOFFS at huffpo don’t help!
I don’t expect a response but feel free if you want another ear full!
I love that Britt took the time to write me that nice, lengthy email when he could have just written “Hey! F*ck you! Write a story about me!” and had the same general effect.
Britt, if you’re reading this, please stop having children.
