How Banjo Are We?

ok kids, if that doesn't make you laugh, I don't wanna know you.

Stacey said that to me last night when we were laughing (duh) and gave me credit for the line ... but it wasn't me who said it - i say it's got Christel written all over it.

so i'm going to be working on a survey to determine how banjo we all are ... cause you know you have a little bit of it in you - even if you don't wanna admit it ....

1. ever know anyone who worked in a towel factory?
2. do you like the movie "smokey and the bandit"? ( and we're just talking the first one....)
3. do you know the words to "devil went down to georgia"

i'm working on a whole big ol' mess of questions like this and will hopefully have a survey posted soon ....

anyhow, serious topic - and we know i usually avoid these....but a dear friend of mine brought to someone's attention their blatent racism .... and the woman seems to be denying her hateful stance. I say if you're going to make blanket statements, then you need to be able to stand by them. I don't consider myself a racist on any level - anyone who knows me ( even sorta ) knows that i have THE most diverse group of friends possible ... and i treasure that - and in the immortal words of the great Henry Rollins - "I don't group hate, I hate with style and creativity" .... so here's my list of people I hate ..

1. The New York Yankees ( i know they're a group and what i just said, but i dont' care... i hate them)
2. The New York Mets ( see notes above )
3. Fred Phelps
4. Pat Robertson
5. Fox News
6. Anyone who would CHOOSE to become a dentist.
7. bullies
8. People who think that just because they are loud, they are right
9. People who drive on the shoulder of the road in traffic - like it's their own fuckin' lane or something
10. People who talk in movies
11. People who sing along in the theater
12. People who arrive late to the theater then interrupt you to slide by
13. The insane ass people who fight for clearance items at a sale ... WTF?
14. People who say " you have such a pretty face"
15. the lying bastards that market "chip free" nail polish
16. The garbage man who throws the can back into the yard instead of sitting it in the driveway

ok that's all i have for the moment .... i'm sure i can come up with more and elaborate on what i have listed ..... so yay me.

I know someonw who worked in a monogram factory.
I LOVE Smokey and the Bandit.
And Yes. I know all the words to The Devil went doen to Georgia.

So I guess I am pretty banjo. But I grew up and live on the East Coast of North Carolina. And we have our own identifiers...how beach are you? And the questions are....

Can you sit for 12 hours with sand in your ass?
Can you light a cigarette, the first time, on the beach?
Does the smell of fish at low tide bother you or do you even notice it?

Yeah, I already flunked (or passed, depending on your perspective) the banjo survey. But then, I'm the girl who got called a "Hoopie" on her own blog. Will someone tell me what the hell a "Hoopie" is? I've lived in what seems to be the epicenter of "Hoopieville" my whole life, and I swear to God I've never heard THAT one before!

Raising my hand....definitely Banjo material here. I even own one and want to learn to play it one day in my spare time.....I"ll go back and hide in the closet now.

Champagne-Mary: That is so COOOOOOL. I always wanted to play the banjo. I've been told it's quite difficult.

Allie: That comment does sound suspiciously like the CoffeeBeeyotch. Which reminds me, I saw "I told you not to look at him in the LIGHT!" and I haven't had a chance to tell her about it yet. Also, the meanest girl I ever knew is now a dentist. How ironic is that?

More People for the List:

*People who, in an argument, resort to saying you're just stupid because you don't agree with them.

*People with very small minds and very big mouths. I think that may be a subset of People who think because they're loud they're right.

*People who feel compelled to shove their opinion down your throat.

*People who jump all over other people for doing something and then turn around and do that exact same thing.

my darling cowboy - i sent you all the stuff you asked for ... have you looked at it yet? might wanna talk to mary - she created this B-EA-U-TI-FUL blog for me ..

I'm looking at it in both Opera and Internet Explorer and it looks fine, so I don't know what to do for it. I'll check it in Foxfire, too, but I don't know what to tell ya. I can suggest that the people who are having problems try refreshing, but that's all I got.

At 1:57 PM, Blogger M'Ary* said...

Looks fine in foxfire, too. If anyone out there knows anything about it, I'd be glad to fix it. I know that when I first post a comment, it writes over top of the post but then after a second it puts everything in the right place when it finishes loading the page, and that it only does it in Internet Explorer.

Ally, if you want to put it back to the blogger template, you know all you gotta do is say the word, hon.

At 2:05 PM, Blogger Allie#3ga said...

NO! don't change it - i love it just like it is ..... and i'm not having problems with my comments either - they show up fine both at the office and at home....

At 2:43 PM, Blogger devilboss said...

This is the first time since you got the new blog (btw Mary, it looks awesome) that the comments were not on top of each other. I guess it fixed itself. Thanks for looking into it.

ok, so for the hate list-- #11)I only sang along in the movies twice--when they brought back The Wizard of Oz and Grease. #14)when I was young and people said to me you have such a pretty face it was usually followed by "if you could just do something about your weight" eff them. oh and #13)I agree although I'll knock a bitch out for some boots. just sayin.

At 3:59 PM, Blogger Allie#3ga said...

jackie - you know that's the reason i hate that face comment!

At 9:39 PM, Blogger se7en said...

i worked on it but you have to reinstall it to see if it works, i also fixed that little error just below the "Powered by Blogger" button thingy at the very bottom of the sidebar, a little arrow that will be gone...

it's still showing the first comment buried in the post text, real weird..... and it's like that on both my pc's running IE6 one has win98 the other winXP so i dunno lol
