In the bag

"Congressional representative Adam Schiff is currently accepting nominations for Altadena's Woman of the Year."
Newswire

And the way I figure it, someone we all know and love should have the inside track.

Who is a woman? Karin.
Who lives in Altadena? Karin.
Who is very much alive and well in this very year in question? Oh, well, now I'm blushing.

I really don't see how they can (ONCE AGAIN!) strike me from the short list. After all, as you can clearly see, I'm three out of three. In addition, and not to toot my own horn, I had no part in the Citibank Scandal, I've never tagged, and I never leave my dog's poo on the street. In fact, as to all the things I've never done, you could write a book. Someone will, mark my words.

When the politics of this Altadena Woman of the Year campaign get dirty, as they most certainly will, some might want to dig into my past and sling the mud. That mushroom thing? Well, that was all alleged and a long time ago, and anyway, I vomited.

So what, are you going to vote for some chick who saved a few lives, gives blood, and volunteers at food banks, or vote for someone who, on a good day when she has nothing much planned, recycles her aluminum wine cans. Not to load the dice, but let me also mention that I've done my part to reduce global warming. I only use aerosol sprays on the chia pet hair days (and not the cute rabbit pet days, I mean the hog pet days).

Oh, I should just let it all go. What's one more award or less or any. I shouldn't care; I shouldn't waste my time and effort. These things are rigged, they're always rigged. Though a few unmarked dollar bills to the proper quarter couldn't hurt. With a note, "If you're darin', vote Karin."

  5. "If you're darin', vote Karin" -- good slogan! Maybe you should run for a higher office!

  6. Oh Earl, that's precious. But I fail to see any resemblance.

  7. Darin' carin' Karin's courageous stand against the gun lobby and mountain bikers have definitely earned her the honor. Does the voting form come with an envelope for my greenbacks?

  14. Chieftess: I have an iPod for a brain!

    (Fell in love with Susan Werner when I discovered her by accident in 1994. Still one of her biggest fans.)

    And of course the last verse does not apply to Karin!

  16. Could it possibly be because you are already in the Altadena's Woman of the Year Hall of Fame?

  19. Don't anyone tell Margaret, but if you've visited this blog over the years, you'll know about the financial prognosticator. I regret to inform you, the bananometer is dead. Updates to follow. The family thanks you for your concern and asks that you respect their privacy.

  20. Was it natural causes or fowl play?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Neither. The only thing I can figure is that my gardeners, in a rare -- nay, unprecedented -- display of energy must have dug it up. If the markets go reeling tomorrow, you'll know why.

  22. "Recycles her aluminum wine cans" --- a winner of a line if I ever saw one!

  26. Please cry when you are presented your award at the awards ceremony. And, wear a banana leaf dress!

    Do this or I'll unfix the FIX.

    That will be all.

  27. Anyone who recycles her aluminum wine cans in her spare time deserves to win. Much better than that blood stuff and all.

  28. Having just read your Patch article standing up to the open carry crowd, I agree with Bellis that you've earned the honor. So I'm starting the Sock Puppet Super Pac.
