The girl who silenced the world for 5 minutesNormally i find little kids talking like grownups about things they're far too young to properly understand creepy but this kids got it spot on! I cant believe she made that speech by her self though.
Ok this really boils my blood! The general arrogance that is displayed by the west when dealing with nature, it makes you wonder if they have a brain. After all they are the ones who have encroached on the coyotes natural habitat and basically crowded them into a corner.
This isn't a case of a rouge coyote that had lost it's fear for humans rummaging in someones back yard, it was in the wild and and it didn't even attack the governors dog!
"I holler and the coyote stopped. I holler again. By this time I had taken my weapon out and charged it. It is now staring dead at me. Either me or the dog are in imminent danger. I did the appropriate thing and sent it to where coyotes go," he said.
Exactly how was he and the dog in danger? he shot to kill! he could have very easily shot in the air or at its feet to scare it off I'm pretty sure a coyote isn't going to hang around when there are bullets flying in the air! Considering there were no witnesses its as likely that the governor saw the poor animal minding its own business and decided to go for a bit of target practice.
I know its Texas and all, and trigger happy red necks are the norm but hes still a governor, what sort of example is he giving?! Yes coyotes arnt exactly endangered animals there or in short supply but then neither are Labradors or humans, what bothered me was his general disregard for the animal and his lack of remorse.
Besides how would you like it if some fool tromped around you house holding a freshly cooked lobster and then shot you for looking at it?
It is such a large part of my life style, I should really pay it more attention; maybe even give it a name? .... for now lets call it Seymour coz at the moment in my head it looks like him.
Because of Seymour it has taken me two months to make my first post in the blog that was in fact created as a means of procrastination. And the timing couldn't have been better coz once again I am writing this while being two days away from a rather important submission that I don’t give a flying-half-monkey-half-two-headed-cockroach-rats-ass about! Considering that I have many such submissions looming in my near future I’m guessing this blog is going to get a lot of attention from me. Hopefully it’ll get other peoples attention too.
The nature of procrastination is an interesting thing, I did some research into it in an attempt to beat down the monster but so far the results have been disheartening:
HOW TO BEAT PROCRASTINATION TODAY!! - among the countless self help books and courses provided on the subject, which I had no intention of spending money on, the general advice given was to do things immediately instead of putting them off....... o__o Well if I could do that I wouldn’t have a problem now would I!? IDIOTS!
Further digging provided the rather more serious evidence that, it can in fact be a physiological disorder and may even be a sign of more serious health issues..... oh joy! I always thought I mite have early onset alzheimers! Heres to hoping that it in my case it isn't that serious!
I really should stop here and get on with my project…although I probably wont Seymours quite demanding these days, hopefully in about an hour n half’s time I’ll get down to it. The truth is I really want this chapter of my life to be over with, It’s been running way to long but for now I feel there is nothing I can do about it. This blog I think is part of the next chapter of my life & I hope that with this first post things will start falling into place more quickly.
