Weekly News

Hello Wednesday! Never greeted a day of the week before? I have, just not normally a non-weekend day. 😉

I’m back once again for a tasty sampling of news. Ready to nosh? I am.

Whoops. That’ll be a doh when he sobers up.

Love this story! What a great way to handle a nonsense suit.

Fingers and toes crossed that this is the beginning of the end for ebola. Too many lives lost. Too much pain.

That’s all folks. See you in seven.

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

  1. I don’t know how you confuse a different structure with your home, lol, drunk or not. Prisons are supposed to be sparse. If he wants the luxuries in life, he better not break the law.

    LOL.. the prisoner’s claim made me laugh…. as if. And how drunk was that viking fan thinking a cop shop was his home… hehe too funny.

    So funny about the tailgater who broke into a police station! At least he stayed and saved the police the trouble of having to look for him! Amazing that the judge wrote the poem in an hour. From the little they printed, it was hilarious and very clever. And he’s right – we should all get to have a little fun at our jobs sometimes. Living in a 3rd world country has given me a different perspective on things like ebola and a less sympathetic one. In Egypt, they have very little respect for garbage, sewage, or germs. It isn’t a financial problem, it’s a too lazy, too stubborn, and too stupid problem. If a septic tank overflows and floods an apt complex’s parking lot, no one will pay to have it cleaned because all the men (wage-earners) say it’s not their business. (I speak from an apt overlooking a sewage-flooded parking lot that floods about 6 times a year. When it dries up after a few days or a week, all the neighborhood kids go back to playing there.) Empty lots and streets are full of garbage because people dump it there rather than pay 10 pounds (1 dollar) per month to the garage collector. I still have to fight my husband to put newly cooked food in the fridge because his mother always left it on the stove for days until people ate it all. To many 3rd world country populaces, “germs” is a term that’s been invented by the west to scare them. They don’t believe in it and refuse to take precautions.

      I get what you’re saying about sanitation, and with the knowledge available, there’s really no excuse. And yet, ebola is such a painful and grotesque way to die that every step toward obliterating it is a celebration in my book.

  4. The second one is ridiculous! You’re a prisoner. You have no rights anyway.
