Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 331

Dope in Colorado

So you can now buy marijuana in Colorado legally. Sometimes I get very confused about laws in the States – one rule in one place, one in the other. Like driving and guns and marriage and wotnot – one rule for one State and one for the other.

It must be very confusing being an American sometimes. For example: how do I know if I’m going to end up in jail or not whilst in the state of Alabama when I’m driving at the 65 miles an hour on the Interstate with my AKA 47 on the backseat, having just married my sister? 😉

Anyway, whatever the rules, here is the news report on that very first USA legal drug purchase…

More [frigging] snow

Yes, there is more snow and I’m feeling a bit like that news anchor who lost it with too many pictures of viewers’ snow-covered furniture…(again, in Colorado).

Last Thursday, Denver’s KUSA-TV news anchor Kyle Clark begged viewers to stop sending in pictures of their snow-covered patio furniture.

He began with this very important message:

“Good afternoon Colorado. Listen. You know I love you. But it is time that we had a talk about your snow-covered patio furniture. Why is it that every time it snows we whip out photos of our patio sets like we’re showing off baby photos of our kids?”

Yep, mine ;)

Yep, mine 😉

Clark pointed out the irony of living in one of the most beautiful snow-covered states in the country but still choosing to photograph a chair in the backyard.

“Is that really the best we can do?” Clark asked. 😉

Yes, I’m guilty too!

But this made me chortle the best. Gawd bless Boston, who got the most inches of snow yesterday.

    Yeah also you can buy dope but you can’t smoke it anywhere in Colorado outside your own home and you can’t buy it with a credit card. the mind boggles

    Thank you for the BIG laugh at the admonishment about snow-covered patio furniture! And then my laugh increased with the Boston sign about the “stawm”. It made my day, which otherwise is quite sad.
