Spring had better fucking spring

Sorry for the long absence. I've been trying to get my life back after something traumatic. I'm involved with another writer, who reminded me that I need to be blogging, so...

Universe, help me out here. We are living in the apocalypse, and this has been the winter from hell! We have had no sun breaks here in the land of the dark, and vitamin D and intense workouts can only go so far.

Throw us a bone, will you? I stitched this years ago...it sums up my current attitude.
In the meantime, I have yet another event coming up and once again, I need a shirt that says, "I'm not your mommy!"

To wit:

If you attend my free luncheon, don't complain about the food. It's from a hotel, after all. And, you didn't pay for it, or donate!

If you sign up for advocacy action, and I let you know the goddamn minute we hear from the Legislature about a hearing, don't complain that you "didn't have enough notice." Particularly if you don't have a job to go to.

If you want to sell ice cream at my event, get my fucking name right in your email.

Likewise, if you want to play music at my event, get back to me, or I will book another band.

This all brings to mind the comment a fellow event manager got a few years ago, letting her know that it "was hot at the walk, and there should be more trees for shade."

I told her to tell that person, Start planting!!

 I will visit you all very soon.

Not nearly enough scientific research is dedicated to finding a cause and cure for stupidity. Or arseholery either.
Hugs.

Great to learn you are fighting fit and still looking the world squarely in the eye, RK. You've been quiet for far too long! :)

So nice to see your post! I am fearful that the majority of people have lost their capacity to reason without the help of stronger people around them. I try to pity them but then they ask me a stupid question and I want to choke the life out of them. UGH!!

As for Spring. It is such a tease here. For a couple of weeks it taunted us with 70 and 80 degree weather and now for the last couple of weeks back into the 40s and 50. Even Mother Nature is being a bitch.

We finally got spring here after one last wimpy snowstorm. And you just enlightened me on something I did not know about.

I Are Writer!

Ah yes, I love when someone wants to ask me for a favor but can't even get my name right. I mean, it's not like my first name is my e-mail address that you had to manually type out to contact me or anything.

Also, I know you've posted a lot of complaints, but I think "there should be more shade" is my new favorite. While you're at it, the parking lot is a little far, so could you bring that in a bit closer to the building next time? K thx.

Sorry to hear about trauma and hope you are OK. Hugs!

Sounds like they are trying to "throw shade" on you. :) Glad you are well.

Hang in there!

There you are girl. Sounds like the Riot Kitty I know. Still having to take all kinds of flack from the public. Love the idea of telling them to start planting. Sorry to hear that you have had stuff to deal with. Miss you.

Abby said...

Hmm, who do I talk to to complain about the free hotel food?
By the way, Kat, can you cut back on the snow here?

Either way, great to see you! Sorry about your tough times and wishing you sunshine.

RK thanks so much for visiting my neglected blog. Your comment spurred me to write a post, any kind of post, just something!! You've had a lot of crappy stuff to put up with, so I think you're actually doing well under the current circumstance that we have a burning sh#%#$ pile going on in Washington. Anyway, take care sweetie, spring is sprung and will be here any moment! If not come back to my blog and stare at the pretty flowers....

Now, that's a title that attracts my attention. Can't help you with the shirt, though. Mine says, "Call me Daddy".

I know.

Meanwhile, good to have you back. That's one smart writer.

When you say "involved with another writer," do you mean "dating"? Did the e-dating site finally pay off?

Best wishes, girl!
