Mindless Ranting…

I know there is a name for a fetish where people are attracted to others who are amputees. Okay that is a little much for me but I would not call myself Vanilla.

But where I am going with this is a little off from that type of fetish. I know a woman who has always had a soft spot in her heart for men who are, say disadvantaged. The Hunch Back of Notre-Dame and the Elephant Man were not a turn on for her sexily but emotionally.

And where am I going with that (?) is slightly off from that idea too. I am talking about women who are into men who are mentally incapable of complex thought. And I know they are out there.

If you don’t believe me, look at Laura Bush. Do you really think she believe George W. is intelligent? I think she married him because he is a half wit.

I think she took one look at him and fell head over heels knowing he was someone she could out smart. And maybe she is not so high on the Mensa invite list either (I looked up her IQ on line and no one will post it) but she can always know she is brighter then her blundering husband. It is a better world now that he is no longer in office. I just hope the rest of the world realizes not everyone in the US is as idiotic as he is.

I think the scariest part of their relationship is they procreated. People that imbecilic should be not aloud to breed. Sure now I am stepping on people’s personal rights. But come on do we really want more feeble-minded people taking up our diminishing natural resources?

A while ago I wrote a blog on my Tribe site (I am no longer on Tribe) which talked about how Paris Hilton as one of these sucks on society. I truly believe her parents should have to pay restitution to the world for inflicting their half minded boorish seed on us and into our media.  Shame on them.  I guess it is similar to those who are not quite as attractive “Only a face a mother can love” well in these cases they are “minds only a father can  support”.

Unfortunately not all stupid people have money and their offspring become even bigger drains on our resources. I truly believe there should be a law about having kids you can’t afford to support. And if you are too stupid to not know any better then you should be fixed. Believe me until they can fix dumb, the smart people of this world should a least try to regulate it.

I know some of you out there may think I am a complete bitch and I am okay with that. Sometimes I am.


Change in the Weather

Posted in Batt Rantts with tags , , , on August 19, 2009 by shebatt

Every year at this time the weather starts to change. The air stays warm but it starts to get heavy and a little on the muggy side. This time of year has always inspired me and made me feel safe. Something I can’t explain it is just what it is.

For the last ten years I have felt this change and started to prepare to go to the desert. In Nevada there is a region called the Black Rock Desert where once a year thousands of people get together for an art festival like no other. For one week you live in a city made up of camping gear, dust, artiest and the most wonderful of freaks.

Each of us go out there for own reason and come home with a new perspective of our existence.

This year for the first time in ten years I am not going. I feel the draw, my mind is storming out all kinds of ideas and everyone I know are making plans to go away. Even my two girlfriends who I camp with are planning a trip this year. Though they are going to Italy and Grease, their plans for adventure have me wanting to roam on my own.

For me. I am trying to save my money. I want to pull my boat (home) out of the water to fix it up and do some needed repairs. My goal is to fix it up and list it with a broker. It is a great solution to the high cost of living in the bay area.

Funny when I first started writing this blog, a few weeks ago, feeling the loss of not going to the desert I did not know my world was about to change in a big way.

Jim, my boyfriend, got a job as an on site manager for an apartment building in the Nob Hill area of San Francisco. We went from our everyday plans of saving money and getting the boat out of the water to rearranging our entire lives. Life has gone from crazy to well…

Though it all I still miss the journey to the desert. I miss having the creative outlet. I miss getting all my camping gear out and washing it down again (even thought I did that when we got home last year) and again trying to get it ready to be filled full of another load dust to bring home and store for the year.

So I guess this blog is to just let all of you who are going to the desert know, I wish I was going with you and well to have a wonderful time.

A poem I wrote 1-22-07

We exist someplace between life and death.
And all our lives we try to gain a foot hold on our place in this world.
Never realizing that stability is an illusion of a fleeting reality.

When comes the day we close our eyes for the last time,
and our life plays out before our inner eye,
we hope to find a single moment where we stood firm.

And to find heaven as we die,
is to understand we never had that rock to stand on.
It was the journey all along.

Celebrate this adventure it is all we have.
Each step we take alone or with others is what should be recognized as life.
Don’t wait until the final curtain falls to realize there are no more acts to this play.
