Well, I Pissed Someone Off

Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Because I get to spend the next several days in Detroit. In January.

I'm traveling on business, of course - why the hell else would I go there at the end of January? The only upside is that I get to meet the elusive Kimby, the Canadian contingent of the UCF, and who I believe to be the last person who's not had a meat-up with another member of our on-line community. There are rumors that she might in fact be a Kim-Bot. I shall report back on that matter, unless I'm assimilated.

You know the drill - I'll try to post periodically, but no promises.

Nothing wrong with Detroit in January, other than the cold.

Not much right with Detroit in January either though... :)

Was there last weekend. The rumors of packs of wolves roving around trains stuck in the snow are just a fabrication. The rampaging yeti, however, are another story.

I do hate the cold. And Yetis. I hate Yetis, as well.

And Yetis. I hate Yetis, as well.

Wait until Sarah Palin finds out you hate Yetis. I'll have you know that Yetis are strong supporters of Palin, who has brought Christianity and proper Constitutional thinking to them, you betcha.

If you are there on Saturday (and actually in the city and not the burbs) you should check out the Eastern Market - http://www.detroiteasternmarket.com/

I've never seen a Yeti there but one can never be too cautious.

Welcome, kristen.

I'll be heading home on Friday morning, so no market for me. Instead I'll get hotel food and business meetings.

And Kimby. Who may, in fact, be a Yeti in disguise.

It wasn't a yeti -- I have it on good authority from Jim Hines that it was a character from Yo Gabba Gabba.

Be sure and wear some stylish Kevlar. Perhaps you could coordinate it with your Fluevogs. As for the Yeti, a white pages search of the Detroit area reveals one family of Yeti's living in Farmington, MI, a northwest suburb of Detroit (and if you think I'm kidding, look it up). Perhaps you could ask them why they are rampaging? I'm sure your readers want to know! Also, perhaps this is a chance for personal growth for you. It could help you deal with your Yeti issues and learn to see them as valuable members of the community, rather than just objects of hate.

The Yeti-American community has done a lot to counteract negative stereotyping of yetis, but the struggle is clearly not over. (As evidenced by those atrocious beef jerky ads.)

moura = the native yeti term for the long struggle to keep their indigenous culture in a modern world.
