... I had an awkward Muslim moment today. Some neighbors on the block are Muslim, they're legitimate refugees from Afghanistan. We've briefly discussed politics but we both felt awkward about it and quickly diverted attention elsewhere. Oddly, I've never heard the Mr. or Mrs. condemn Islamic fundamentalists or Muslim terrorists at all, never heard them mention support for the President, nothing at all since 9/11. Even back then, it seemed to me that they felt Osama wasn't the man but ironically, Saddam was, and he was the one Bush should be after. In no way do I feel they are a security threat but I think they want a pacifist leader in the White House. Anyway, I've flown Bush stickers on my vehicles since earlier this year so they know of my party affiliation. Today I go to my polling place and by pure happenstance, lo & behold I get in line right behind them. I start up some cheery small-talk unrelated to politics whatsoever and I get the complete cold shoulder - barely even made eye contact. It was like they were nervous I was there and they knew I am a Bush supporter (perhaps they're not). Oh well, it's been a nerve wracking week, took the rest of the day off and tomorrow as well. Where is our country headed?

I CAN imagine the stink, as I have unfortunately smelled it! I used to work for the Arizona Republic as a collector back in the day, and I spent many occasions in those shitty apartments just off of Lemon and Terrace in Tempe. The skanky funk that permeates the air in that WHOLE AREA left a nauseating indelible mark on my brain and olfactory! We used to call the area "Sin City". I remember thinking back in '90 that we should just MOAB the whole place. Too bad we didn't.

Oh, and by the way, there isn't just ONE apartment complex in that area that are SN infested. There are a bunch!

Oh, that brings back a memory from last year!

When me and the ex were gonna move into an apt together, we got an Arab from Jersey as a roomie by accident. It smelled so bad, and he had only been there for the day! My ex was very upset, and quickly got us changed to a dif apt with dif roomies. She just couldn't get over the smell, not to mention he gave out a very weird vibe to the both of us.
