In America

"In America, you don't ask for help, you demand it."

Spoken with a beautiful lilting accent by the older of the two little Irish girls in the movie "In America."

I have a new favourite quote!

So, in the spirit of the statement, can anyone swing Red a Green Card... NOW?

Red & Green? Sounds more like a watermelon to me!

redsaid said:

Actually, AirMatix, it would be more like Red & Pink. 'Cause that is the colour of a coveted "Green" Card, go figure. Must be one of those typical government idiosyncrasies.

Okay, I don't have a comeback for that one. Unless you count the naughty ones, but I don't think I'll post them in public. Anybody wanting to hear them can e-mail me ;)

kim said:

is that only in america or towards americans (maybe even from a different continent?) as well? because if so, i might have just found out why "the man" doesn't do what i want. cos i don't demand enough..

oh ja, and the green-car-swinging-person (crossing my fingers here for you, red) is free to swing one towards germany if there's one left..

kim said:

ahem - how a about a greencard in the glove compartment of the green car? ;o)

martha said:

funny, i think the truth is more like, "in america, you don't ask for help, you expect it."

Yeah, go ahead and see what happens if you expect it in inner city New York. Get back to us after that. Oh, right. You won't be able to, because you'll be dead. Sorry.

LOVE this blog! Love the look and content and will be back again, and again, and again, and...well, you get the picture.

Boy, some of your comments are NAUGHTY!



















about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
