Already FRYday. Been a lot of comments lately about transients being called transients I guess some people don't agree with the word, even when I was a transient I really did not mind being called a transient. I really don't mind being called a lot of things except I don't like being called hypersensitive. Keep calling me that sooner or later someone might find themselves going on a ride thru the Wood chipper of Love. No one has given me poo poo about using the term transient to describe homeless people because I report what I hear from the Scanner. If I was to hear the police describe homeless as Dainty little Wildflowers then that is what I would say.
"A Dainty Little Wildflower, took a poopy in public today on the bench in the 1200 Block of State street." I think it's just easier for the police to say transient. I don't know why people find it offensive? It's just a word. Maybe the police department ought to be contacted about this. Or maybe if people are so offended by the word they ought to make it a law to outlaw the word. I was actually thinking about this today as I traveled around doing my thang, "Maybe the Homeless should not be called transients, the police call Gang Members Gang Types, maybe the Homeless ought to be called Homeless Types. But then there would be otter problems down the road like Homeless type A, then type ,B,C,D,E, describing all the different types of homeless people, maybe that needs to be done until then I'm reporting what I hear on the Scanner.

I'm sitting here in my little house and I could hear this woman talking out loud she's really loud! She's over behind 211 South Milpas like over a hundred feet from me. She has the most annoying voice too! I'm thinking Belinda will come out and let her have It. Belinda is watching "Ellen" right now Belinda loves Ellen she thinks when she is watching "Ellen" that Ellen is right there in the room with her. Belinda will not let anything in the world between her and Ellen. I got her tickets to the show one time and they showed Belinda sitting in the audience she looked like she was in total shock that she was there. That woman won't be talking loud for long.
