I stink, therefore I blog...


A year between posts? Ok, I am a little slow... Look at the bright side, I have a year's worth of stuff to say... hopefully there are a few poignant gems amongst the stones of my existence. I'll let you be the judge of that...

I stink, therefore I blog... I am just getting over 11 days with NO ELECTRICITY, NO RUNNING WATER, NO PHONE LINES, NO CABLE and NO INTERNET... As I told Adam Curry in an email to the Daily Source Code (read by Adam in DSC#272), I was "Living Like The Flintstones, Thanks To Wilma!" Until power was restored at the homes of nearby friends, we literally bathed in a lake, "Survivor" style... It was during this sweaty, stinky, sawdust covered time of post hurricane hysteria that I decided that if I ever again had access to a (reasonably) reliable internet connection I would take the time to start regularly contributing to the sassholes blog...

So, here I am. Hopefully you will hear from me again before another year passes...

Let's end today's post with a song... Here's a little ditty I wrote to entertain the kids while chopping downed trees:

"Wilma's Worries"

Lyrics by J.W. Sass

Sung to the tune of "Don't Worry, Be Happy"

When wicked Wilma start to blow...
See da trees wave to and fro...
Don't worry, be happy...

When all da water hit da house,
We hide inside just like da mouse
Don't worry, be happy...

We get back pow'r sooner or later,
It would be better with a generator...
Don't worry, be happy...

I meet my neighbors, shoot da breeze,
Borrow a chainsaw to cut da trees
Don't worry, be happy...

Wait all day on line for gas,
Pray to see FPL truck pass
Don't worry, be happy...

I won't be goin sailing today,
Because my boat she washed away
Don't worry, be happy...

Thanks to Wilma school is closed
Summer vacation is gonna be hosed
Don't worry, be happy

If Hurricane give you big fears,
You may not like da next 20 years,
Don't worry, be happy!

Wicked Wilma she's to blame,
For my big insurance claim
Don't worry, be happy...

Things are not as bad as they seema
If you can get some money from FEMA,
Don't worry, be happy!
