    Tuesday Talkback

    As if the elections weren't moaning and talkback enough, I give you Tuesday Talkback.

    "A week before Halloween at Ridge Park Square in Brooklyn, Christmas lights were on and lit. Every year the holiday gets shoved down our throat earlier and it's not a surprise that I'm sick of it when it actually shows up." - Parma

    A few Christmas lights two months before Christmas has nothing on the months and months of political campaigning that finally (hopefully) ENDS TODAY. And after a week, all of those yardsigns left on treelawns and vacant lots will look as bad as a Christmas tree on MLK day.

    "Yes, let's turn the church sanctuary into a boxing ring to illustrate a sermon and promote violence. Makes sense to me." - Lakewood

    I am not sure what this person is talking about, but ... when you sat down, NAMBLA gave you a standing ovation. No, it doesn't make sense to say that here either.

    "These drivers who just dash out, pulling in front of you in traffic, as if to say, 'If you don't want to wreck your car or cause an accident, you'll stop!' " - Cleveland

    As if to say? No, that's what I'm saying! Pretty much: "Go ahead and hit me, and sit here for the next couple of hours doing paperwork."

    "I am begging the manufacturers of clothing to please not add spandex to the material! This makes it very difficult to iron and, within an hour of wear, the clothing looks slept in." - North Royalton

    Spandex is difficult to iron, I suppose. I question why anyone would want to. Perhaps this person irons her nylons too? I guess I just haven't noticed the spandex sneaking into the clothes that I wear. Hmmm.

    "A big, fat jeer to the Ohio Lottery for playing the first holiday commercial of the season on Oct. 30. It's a commercial about their new holiday cards and has Christmas music, etc. - Euclid

    A big fat jeer? This isn't Friday's Cheers and Jeers -- this is Monday Moaning. You supposed to say "A big fat moan." Get it right!

    "I enjoy the evening tri-colored light show on the Lakeside Courthouse from the Shoreway, so why have half the lights been burned out in the eastern portion for most of 2006?" - Cleveland Heights

    This lighting, while pleasant, isn't exactly what I'd call a "light show." No more so than jogging down the driveway to get my newspaper would be called "the Iron Man." But when I drove by the Old Courthouse the other night, it was all lit up the same as it has been for some time.

    "I thought I would be calling for Thankful Thursday but, unfortunately, I'm calling for Monday Moaning. I lost my wallet at the Browns game. I understand if you're hard up for the money, but you could have at least turned in my wallet." - Middleburg Heights

    Everybody who goes to the Browns game loses money, except maybe Randy Lerner.

    "Why is it every time I coast and try to save a little gas when I come to a red light, some driver behind has to speed up, pass me and I end up behind the bumper of that vehicle a few hundred feet down the road? This country could save a lot of gas if drivers would just alter their driving habits." - Avon Lake

    A lot more gas would be saved if you got off the road altogether. And my last nerve would be saved by not being stuck behind some jackass who thinks he's saving the world by slowing me down.

    "I received not one, but two, notices from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections on where to go to vote. It has the name, address and voting location. Then I read in the paper that you cannot use these as identification, and I got two, no less. It's a waste of taxpayers' money." - Cleveland

    Providing you notice of the location of your polling place is a waste of taxpayers' money? In your case, perhaps it is.

    "I work in a bar. If you are an adult, I think you should be able to smoke in a bar, racetrack, casino, anywhere a minor shouldn't be in the first place. I could see a restaurant or public place where you have children could be smoke-free. But you have a choice to go to the bar." - Cleveland

    Ah, because it is only the lungs of minors that should concern us and be kept smoke-free. I see...

    Actually, I'm surprised there weren't more issues oriented moans this week, such as:

    I've got this money burning a hole in my pocket, and I'd rather hand it over to Forest City Enterprises locally than drive to Detroit and leave it at the casino in Greektown.

    Or maybe:

    I engage in addictive behavior that will eventually kill me, but if I could pay 50 cents a pack to the arts while I do that, at least I'll have died for a good cause.

    Maybe next election.

    ugh- i agree with the spandex thing...it's nigh-unto-impossible, if you're a lady, that is, to find a pair of jeans these days that's not "stretch." WTF? maybe i'll just start shopping in the men's department.

    I'm going to try this without all the spelling errors...

    As a lady with a huge ass, I love spandex in everything I own. Welcome to my world bitches!

    yeah, but do you iron it? doesn't the stretching take care of the wrinkles?

     

    Blogger anne said ... (10:31 AM, November 07, 2006) : 

    The only thing I don't like about the spandex is that eventually it wears out and you are left with a saggy sad pair of pants that droops in all the wrong places.

    Hi. I am looking for kristen. Have you seen her? She looks HOT through her window, although...well...I am embarrassed to say, she is ignoring me because I am too "white."

    I think the moaner is really refering to spandex/lycra in blouses. You know the kind you buy at Target that are tapered in the waist. Those mfers are impossible to iron. I won't buy one.

     

    Blogger anne said ... (12:39 PM, November 07, 2006) : 

    Oh, I have a bunch of those, and they are hard to iron. I usually do a crappy job that makes it look worse than if I had done nothing.

     

    Blogger MrsTito said ... (12:51 PM, November 07, 2006) : 

    I haven't used my iron since pegged jeans were in style. I just throw it in the dryer for a few minutes on hot and - voila!
