"DEMCO and Entergy Can Suck My Euphemistic Cock"
Betcha can’t tell from the above quote who I just talked to. Annti wanted me to update y’all on her situation. As I’m sure you’ve figured out by now, the electricity companies are pissing off poor people left and right. The Country Club of Louisiana and the malls have power right now, as I’m sure you’re ever so happy to know, but her town is still suffering in the southern summer heat. The “best” part? She was told yesterday that it will probably be TWENTY-ONE MORE FUCKING DAYS until she sees any electricity again. Tell me that ain’t some bullshit.
There is, however, plenty of bottled water being handed out. She doesn’t understand why, since the water in town is running just fine and doesn’t need to be boiled to be safe, but there you have it. She’s been busting her ass every day making trips to get ice for the people in her building only to be met with little appreciation for all her work. And to rub some salt in the wound, she’s been trying arrange ice deliveries to the building so that she isn’t breaking her own back and using all of her gas doing it herself, and when it finally happens today, no one informs her that the truck came by. In fact, some bright assholes in the lobby were idiotic enough to tell the guy that they don’t need any, making the attempt useless. So, yes, she had to make another trip herself. Personally, I think it’s a damn miracle that she hasn’t taken her baseball bat to some heads.
Being deprived of TV and computer is driving our gal crazy. She’s been getting plenty of reading done though. The funniest part in our conversation happened when I was in the middle of a sentence about how reading is a lot more enjoyable if it isn’t the ONLY thing to do, when she interrupted me with “I can’t even run my vibrator right now. What were you saying?”
“Um, Annti? A damn good way to make me lose my train of thought is to bring up vibrators. My brain has done a complete 360.”
After a good round of laughter, she tried to remind me of what I was saying, “You were talking about reading. Go ahead.”
“Nope, I’ve officially lost it. Vibrators it is.”
After a spending a few interesting minutes on our new topic, we made our way back to the situation at hand. She asked me to tell her beloved friends and readers to praise the GMC (it may be old, but it still does all the work demanded of it), show some love to the National Guard (who have been busting their asses to help those in need) and send a big “FUCK YOU” to the Sheriff’s Department (who acts as if her town doesn’t even EXIST).
“Oh! And tell ‘em that one thing that will never stop in a disaster is commerce. Capitalism rules over all.” She’s spent $60 on ice so far, which is absolutely ridiculous, and $2 bags of cat food has gone up to $5. And that’s not even for the big bags. She didn’t tell me to ask for any donations, but I know that anything anyone can give to the cause will be much appreciated.
Anyhoo, that is your Annti update for the time being. Keep her in your thoughts. It may be awhile before she’ll be joining us again, but as Tammy has said several times, when she does come back she should be bringing us some good rants.
