no person in the world is beneath you, unless you decide to walk all over them
todays good challenge: feed a homeless person
personally ive always preferred to give a man some food rather than some money, though money always helps im sure. being homeless myself once or twice… i know how awlul and stale those soup kitchen sandwiches can be. garbage, even more so.
a few times ive chatted it up with some of the homeless here in town when we’re eating at hardees… and sadly even though i have a full kitchen of food in my apartment, i sometimes too often resort to the deliciousness that is mass produced hamburgers… but i have a choice. when youre on the street its a lot harder to just pop up a stove and start cookin bacon and eggs, and if you want to, that equipment isnt free.
theres something to be said about the homecooked meal. a comfort to it… not just when youre eating a comfot food like mashed potatoes.. i mean a comfort like having a freind around or a nice set of clean sheets after youve taken a hot shower. something much different in the experience than eating some fast food by yourslef, or standing over the sink in your apartment alone eating a can of chunky soup… yes, even those of us with apartments tend to not cook for a big group of people… because living by yourself isnt quite as easy to cook for as say 2 or 3 or 4 people is
i havent gotten a chance to do this challege yet, becasue i was sleeping the day away from exhaustion and illness, but i cant wait to go up to a homeless guy or girl or kid and hand em one of my yummy club sammies and an ice cold bottle of root beer… something pleasing abotu that combination…
i just hope they dont turn out to be a vegetarian…. might make things rather awkward while i hand them a sammie covered in dead poultry and bacon.
ill bring along a salad too though…
i hope the rest of you enjoy this challenge… and try to remember… no person in the world is beneath you, unless you decide to walk all over them
its beginning to look a lot like christmas
putting up my thin cardboard world trade centers in the window today with scotch tape…. and made my cut out paper airplanes, and putting tinsel on my pentagon tree. time to go buy my 911 gifts and if im a good boy, then tonight st. mauch-halala-bab will leave me some presents tomorrow. ive left out my milk and hummus
have a happy 911.. yeah, businesses havent tried to cheapen it at all like they did to christmas… havent seen a single tv commercial mentioning it… nothing from earl and george’s carpet emporium reminding you and yours a solemn september 11th and dont forget our carpet sale!
how long honeslty do you think it will be until there are annual september 11th weekend car sales or 911 rememberence barbeques… pentagon carols… as people wa around the neighbourhood dressed as arabs or firemen or airline pilots with a bag out for candy…
maybe there will be coca cola commercials reminding you to have a save 911
hallmark will make 911 cards… if they havent already
we are witnessing the slow startings of what eventually becomes the crass commercialisation of an event that shouldnt really be cashed in on. but we americans do love a good barbeque and beer fest…. maybe eventually it will even become a national holiday for everyone so we dont have to goto work or school.
you may scoff at such ludicrous ideas right now, but its already happening. there are already tv commercials from various national and local businesses and products remembering the tragic events 10 years ago while casually reminding you that theyre in business and sell some of the yummiest happy meals youve ever tasted
its only a matter of time until we have cheapened it liek the 4th of july or christmas or thanskgiving or whathaveyou.
im almost positive that the number of cars on the road wont be any different than other days. people will still buy gasoline, they will still knowingly support terrorist middle eastern countries, because its easy to remember the lives lost… as long as it doesnt inconvenience you. youll counteract your act of supporting the terrorists by perhaps a commerative bumper sticker or ribbon magnet… theyre quite the trend i hear… oh but im just making that up right… nobody has 911 magnets and bumper stickers.,.. that would jsut be cheap and in poor taste
have a happy 911
your sept 11th thought for the day
when you celebrate the 10th anniversary of the 911 attacks, remember while you drive your car… that gasoline came from oil we bought to support terrorist harboring nations that did the attacks 10 years ago
ill be riding my bike
have a happy 911
dear nbc news
@NBCNews just to play devils advocate you call them morons, but they managed to hack nbcnews for 2nd time this year. whos the real moron
when you resort to 3rd grade retorts towards security breeches, much like screaming ‘doo-doo head!” at a meanie on the playground, youre just letting everyone see why you were so easily hacked. you probably have ‘boobies’ as your password or something else equally sophmoric
