My dearest 5 blog readers,

You know I’m not a hater at heart, and I don’t like to bring politics into the blogroom. But, I have to do it tonight — I promise it’ll be quick, like pulling the band-aid off the wound. I have to ask: Who voted for Rick Scott for governor?

Seriously. I would like to know, because I know I didn’t. And I haven’t met or heard of anyone that’s said anything close to being a ray of sunshine or even an M&M found on the floor about this man. Being that my family and friends consist of policemen, firemen, teachers and other state employees, Gov. Scott is not on my good side.

Some Scott highlights:

– Visited some of South Florida’s beaches in April, wearing custom cowboy boots.

Yee-haw.  

– Closed the door on high-speed rail plans for Florida.

I can’t wait for horse and buggies to make their comeback.

Signed a bill to kick off merit-based pay and new rules on tenure for teachers, plus he’s proposed education cuts that would further reduce per-child spending.

Welcome to FloriDuh!

– Proposed pension reform for state workers, which includes state employees paying as much as 5 percent of their salary to their retirement account.

Ugh.


A few thoughts as I’ve aged another year:

–Bacon is freakin’ good. Sorry, Bacon, I’m not sure why I ignored you for so many years/decades.

–I may not ever grow green thumbs.

–Still trying my best to not use LOL.

Seafood is still on my no-eat list.

–It’s official; I’m a cat lady. But I still want a dog someday.

–I love surfing the net for food porn.

–I still haven’t jumped out of that plane …. soon, hopefully soon!

All in all, this aging thing isn’t so bad. I’m happy, I’m employed and I’m not in foreclosure, so I can’t really complain. Sure, I’d like to not spot white hairs on my head, wear stomach-showing shirts and zebra-striped pants like I did in college (seriously, I loved those pants!) and make more money, but when the end of the day comes — all in all I’m a happy girl. Lady. Woman. Whatever.
