The Television is still On... [Jan. 22nd, 2007|12:37 pm]
But that's not the worst. Until yesterday's actual snow, the snow-making machine had been on at their house for 3 days.

Yes. A snow-making machine.

I have now officially become fixated on their electrical usage and other environmental waste...the water, the film on my car from whatever additive they're using to make the snow...

It's probably a good thing that, starting this week and running through July, I'll as busy as a one-armed juggler tossing three flaming cats.

Not that I've ever juggled three flaming cats. But Bagel once told me that juggling them wasn't nearly as hard as lighting them and getting them airborne and THAT I believe.

I'd be more concerned about ...

1) which end to light
2) which end to grab
3) the ability to differentiate between the two

Yes it's me - I found you hahahahaha now you scratch your head and say 'me who?' *snicker*

When a cat's on fire, does it really matter which end you grab? It's ALL very pissed off at that point.

Oh, you so sneaky...

I'm just amazed at the fact that they feel they need a snow machine. Yes, I understand that we've had a deficit, but I mean seriously people. Go to a ski resort to see snow. Don't make your own in a residential area.

Maybe they won the lottery or have some deal with the gubment?

Actually, you can pick up a small snow gun for about $150. Which I can't really sum up outrage about...as the owner of a fog machine that cost near double that. And the special fx light I bought for Halloween...and...

You're one to talk....or should I not bring up Horatio?

1) you do not run your fog machine 24/7.
2) You're an entertainer. You enjoy entertaining. Therefore its justified that you have an FX light and fog machine. It just seems like these people like to use electricity. I'm not knocking hte snow maker, but it just seems pointless to keep a thing likie that running when the actual thing exists. You wouldn't run your fog machine if you lived in a fog prone area to promote more fog, right?

3)Horatio gets off on a technicality- he was a gift...and does occassionally get used. I don't just walk out on my back porch and go shootin (Manassas City would probably frown on that as is)....at my parents house however...anything goes. *grins* :)

Are they from France? And I mean Conehead France, not where the Champagne comes from.

I'd find out what the chemical is on your car and if it's ruining the car.
If so, sue 'em... if it's ruining your car, think what it's doing to the environment... okay.. never mind that...

Dude, you've seen how I treat my car...most snow enhancers are relatively low impact (geek, geek, geek, geek) and a residential use is really low impact compared to say, oh, I dunno, a ski resort. Although there the impact is actually more the diversion of water than...(geeeeeek, geeeeek, geeeek)

I gotta stop now, my geek alarm is making it hard to think.

I actually would probably think the snow machine was very cool...and would be lusting after one myself, for special effects, parties, etc., if only the TV thing hadn't activated my "WASTE OF RESOURCES" obsession.
