oct 5 2016

vituperative- I DON'T KNOW HOW I GOT SIGNED UP FOR A WORD OF THE DAY, BUT I NOW GET ONE-- AND TODAY'S VITUPERATIVE  IS A WORD I USED TO USE IN NORMAL NORMAL CONVERSATION AS OPPOSED TO WHEN I WAS WRITING SOME ENGLISH HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT ON "ALL GAUL BEING  DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS." ...

I GUESS THIS CONCEPT STARTED YESTERDAY WHEN MEGAN TOOK SOME DOGS TO THE HIGH SCHOOL FOR A DEMO.. AND TEH KIDS WANTED SOME INFORMATION ABOUG VOLUNTEERING...SO SHE HANDED ROUND  A SIGN UP SHEET, AND AFTER LOOKING AT THE RESULTS WAS FORCED TO SAY " IF I CAN'T READ YOUR WRITING, YOU WILL GET NO EMAIL" I.E.  ONCE AGAIN TEXTING RAISES IT'S UGLY HEAD...  NOT ONLY CAN THESE KIDS NOT WRITE A PARAGRAPH, THEY CAN'T WRITE PERIOD-- THEY TEXT.....THE  SCRATCHINGS ON PAPER.... WELL... WALKING THE CHICKENS ACROSS WHITE PAPER WOULD BE MORE LEGIBLE.
 LORDY-- THEY CANT ALL BECONE  DOCTORS BUT THEY HAVE THAT "DOCTOR'S  HANDWRITING"  DOWN PAT. 

I ALWAYS FIGURED THE SCHOOL SYSTEM WAS THERE TO TEACH READING, WRITING AND ARITHMETIC... THE REST WAS UP TO ME... I MUDDLED THRU THE PROCESS  BUT MY MOTHR WORKED HARD AT TI.. AND  USED  THE MIRRORS IN OUR BEDROOMS TO TRY AND  SHAPE OUR THOUGHT PROCESS... SHE WOULD PUT UP SOME WWORD- THEN WE WERE TO USE IT ALL DAY... LIKE THE SOUND BITES OF THE POLITITIANS TODAY  , WE WOULD WORK OVERTAIME  TO GET IT  INTO OUR DAILY CONVERSATION.  VITUPERATIVE WAS ONE OF THOSE WORDS.

THE OTHER THING WAS POETRY
"IF YOU CAN KEEP YOUR HEAD WHEN ALL ABOUT YOU
ARE LOSING  THEIRS AND BLAMING IT ON YOU" ( "IF"  BY RUDYARD KIPPLING  HUNG IN THE HALL AND EARNED ME $10 TO MEMORIZE IT)
I AM ASHAMED  TO THINK THE TIME WE SPEND ON HOLD, LISTENING TO "YOUR CALL IS IMPORTANT TO US" WITH HORRID CANNED MUSIC-- WE COULD BE LISTENIG TO  "WHO'S WOODS THESE ARE, I THINK I KNOW"
 I WONDER IF THERE IS A MARKET FOR CANNED POETRY TO ENTERTAIN?  IT WOULD HAVE TO BE GERED TO THE PROBABLE POPULATION  ON HOLD FOR EACH COMPANY-- FROM GREEK POEMS TO...
"A FREIND IS NOT A FELLOW  WHO IS TAKEN  IN BY SHAM
A FRIEND IS ONE WHO KNOWS YOUR FAULTS AND DOESNT GIVE A DANM" 

WHO WOULD TYPE IN ALL THAT IN A TEXT.  SO THAT CONCEPT IS LOST TO HUMANITY?  
 WE ARE LOSING OUR ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE IN ANYTHNG MORE THAN VERY BASIC THOUGHTS WHICH CAN BE EXPRESSED BY OUR POSSIBLE WORLD LEADERS IN A  TWITT.

AND THOSE THINGS WE HANG ON HIGH SCHOOL KIDS USED TO BE CALLED  "BOOKBAGS"   WHAT A FARCE !.  WITHOUT ELECTRICITY TO RECHARGE BATTERIES, THE FUTURE KIDS CAN'T READ AT ALL.
PAPER IS ONLY PRINTED TO HAND OUT INFORMATION THAT SOMEONE THINKS YOU LEGALLY SHOULD  KNOW.
LIKE " CAUTION THIS MEDICATION MAY CAUSE YOUR TEETH TO FALL OUT" .

 FROM SHUTTERING TO THINK OF ALL THE THINGS I AM BEING WARNED ABOUT  IN THAT WAD OF PAPERS I PICK UP WITH EACH PRESCRIPTION... TO 5 SIMPLE WORDS  WORKING DOG. DO NOT DISTURB.  
THE GENERAL PUBLIC DOES NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT READING.

IF THIS PROGRESSION CONTINUES AND PEOPLE DON'T READ THE ONE WORD   STOP SIGNS WE WILL HAVE A MESS.
****
WE APPARENTLY WILL ALSO HAVE A HURRICANE ( WHY IS THAT NOT A HIMMIACANE?) ALONG ABOUT NEXT SUNDAY ACCORDING TO THE GREEN AND RED GLOB SLIDING UP A MAP OF THE EAST COAST...
I AM SUPPOSED TO HAE GIVEN AN EVACUATION PLAN TO THE ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER-- I WILL DO THAT TODAY...ALL OUR DONKEYS COUL DBE SQUEEZED  INOT ONE TRAILER- AND A PHONE CALL LIST  OF LOCAL VOLUNTEERWS   IS AVAILABLE ON THE FRIGERATOR TO TAKE THE DOGS OUT ONE CARLOOAD AT A TIME... (ONLY 2  DOGGIE TESTICLES PER CARLOAD)
 HOW TO PREPARE????   WE COLD HAV E A PROBLEM WITH THE HIGH WIND... WITH 2 "BALLOON" TYPE BUILDINGS... SOMEHOW I DOUBT THE TIPI WOULD BE A PROBLEM...  LOVE THOSE TRIANGLES.....  
*****
I AM TOLD JANINE HAS FIXED TEH  WEB PAGE TO THE NEXT CHICKEN WALL...



I  HAVE NOT TRIED IT YET....  BUT NOW WILL.... :)

  1. Carlene, you are spot on with your observations about this generation and this is coming from a Gen Xer. Maybe if more of my generation read your observations we would not have a world filled with kids who can't think for themselves or can't write a sentence on a piece of paper.
