I thought war was 'sposed to be good for the economy?

Once again,things have conspired to leave us short of jobs in our little cabinet shop.
We have work lined up,but the recent fires have delayed construction on many of the homes we've scheduled for installation.
Consequently,we're working short days until things pick up.
Yep,..I'll be getting off at noon for at least this week,if not the next few.

I know what you're all thinking right about now.
'Holy crap!..How is Sling gonna afford whiskey and cigarettes??'

Not to worry!
I've worked out a budget that not only provides for rent,but also guarantees that I'll be flush with tobacco,and cheap brown liquor for the foreseeable future!

If there's anything left after that,I'll buy food.

It is good for the economy - if you work in the oil industry or manufacture armaments and so on. Cabinet-making? Not so high on the list. Sorry, bub.

As long as you have the booze and cigarettes covered, it should be fun. Hopefully, it won't last too long.:)

It reassures me just knowing that someone has his priorities straight.

Those are some serious survival skills, my friend. I am convinced that I needn't worry.

Unless you tell me that I need to, in which case I probably will.

Nah. I'll just worry anyway. Got any booze?

OMG, I"ve just figured out why I'm fat again. My anti-smoking stance is doing me in. So ... you're telling me that you'd by ciggies before buying any of the following: cheddar cheese, pasta, brownie mix? If so ... wait, I need to think ...

gotta have plan, and that sounds like a plan!

It's one of the few benefits of fire experiences - getting priorities in order. Yours read almost exactly like ours.

Worse case scenario, we can have ourselves a little commune.

how about growing your own and setting up a still?

You can always dance for extra cash.

I think back in the day when America was full of factories War was good for the economy, but now I think India and China are the ones making cash from this war.

Yellerdawg- What exactly are Kolaches??
Do they have anything to do with Armadillos?

citizen- Well they gotta keep their armaments stored someplace right?

serena joy- Oh,it'll be fun in the short term.Things go from zero to sixty around here pretty quick.

jan- Once you've got the basics covered,everything else is gravy!

JP- Don't worry buddy.
Hey!..I'll trade you a beer for a baloney sandwich.

cowbelle- If you wanna lose weight,you'll have to take one step at a time.
Start with giving up that morning cheddar cheese,move on to eliminating pasta while driving to work,and most importantly,NO more brownies after sex!

mom- It's all about discipline!

Lost- I'm a Capricorn,we're organized like that.

booda babe- It's nice to know I'm not alone in this!
It's easier when you have the support of friends. :)

billy P.- Holy crap!..You just reminded me.
I really do have a beer making kit!
This changes everything!

Sage- Are you suggesting that I supplement my income by totally debasing myself onstage for the prurient delight of a roomful of horny broads??
..'cause that's my 'B' plan.

I find that a glass of brown liquor and a cigarette will stave off hunger for a good long while.

 
At 8:59 PM , Blogger Miss Healthypants said...

Oh thank God! I was worried for a minute.

Glad you are well-supplied with the essentials. :)

As long as the basic necessary items are covered a person can make do with the rest.. I'm sure LK's Mom will bring you potato salad or something. I'd send some fried chicken to go with it, but it really doesn't ship too well in this heat.

War is NOT good for the general economy and it never has been- it's a myth perpetrated by war profiteers and swallowed by citizens who have more iPods than historical knowledge...the END of WWII (the GI Bill)was great for the economy, but we were near the edge of bankruptcy during the War...Bush's Grandpa Prescott Bush made a killing selling arms to Nazi Germany but Congress froze his assets for trading with the enemy. The apple sure does fall a long way from the tree, eh?

 
At 2:02 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Rainey- Plus!..They're low in saturated fats. :)

MHP- It's amazing what a little creative accounting can accomplish.

doralong- Oh,I probably won't starve,but maybe you should send the fried chicken,just in case.

allan- I was pretty sure it was bullshit.
That's the main reason I don't own an I-Pod.
I didn't know that about the elder Bush,but it explains a few things!

Sageweb is spot on - China is the only country really producing things these days - But don't ever smoke their smokes or drink their whiskey - they put lead in everything -

 
At 3:03 PM , Blogger Sling said...

middle child- China is surely on track to becoming a major economic power.

Lead in my whiskey is the main reason I stopped drinking moonshine manufactured in car radiators..Unless,you know,that's all there is.

kolaches are a czech pastry...dough filled with either arprocot, apple, blueberry, poppy seed, cream cheese, etc..then baked in oven...pretty damn good if done right..
we also have something called an armadillo egg, but i've never been brave enough to try one..now a skunk egg is a bunch of chopped meats wadded into a ball, battered and deepfried...evrything in texas is deep fried, including the coffee..

 
At 3:49 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Yellerdawg- I'm still not exactly sure what kolaches are..Perhaps if you sent me a baker's dozen,I could evaluate them,and get back to you. ;)

Granny, nothing beats Glasgow where they deep fry Mars bars... the old arteries are a pumpin' just writing that phrase.

Sling, they do say that preplanning is esential in a good war or even as in the case a bad war.
