Ulog #13 - Happy CANADA Day and the 12 Step Program for Steem Addiction.

in #ulog3 years ago

Happy Canada Day! Yes, I'm late but it's been a heck of a weekend!

Because I was born in 1967 I take Canada Day quite personally AND my birthday's in July so those fireworks are for me! LOL!!!! Aging has to have some perks!

Seriously, I had the pleasure of celebrating our Nation's birthday with my husband and my grandson, Apollo. What better way to celebrate than to gather at the splash-pad for a good old-fashioned water fight! Everyone joined in using water bottles and plastic cups to drown their opponents. Many of us packed picnics to enjoy under the shade trees. It was amazing!

On the way home my husband suddenly lost control of the mobility scooter. A flat tire. OH JOY! It was only a 46 C humidex. After investigating we found an earring lodged firmly in our tire. As you can imagine we were a sight to see half lifting and half pulling this heavy beast home. I was never so happy to get home into the A/C!

Just after dinner Apollo had to leave to go to a celebration with his Mom. After he left I was so tired that I missed the City's fireworks display. I MISSED THEM! I couldn't believe it. I only had to walk out onto my balcony to see them. LOL!! I never miss "my" fireworks. I suppose I'll have to be much more careful next year. But all was not lost! Around midnight the University of Western Ontario started their display which was amazing!! Thank you U.W.O.!

We may not be a perfect country but we do our best. I'm proud of our healthcare and educational systems. I'm proud that we are constantly striving to be better! My Government Officials may not be perfect but they are damn good looking and polite.

Thought for the day:

…with love, we are creative. With it, we march tirelessly. With it, and with it alone, we are able to sacrifice for others.

— Chief Dan George, First Nations Chief

I decided this weekend to spend 100% of my time with my grandson. NO STEEM! It was a good decision but it wasn't easy. I think we need a 12 - Step Program for STEEM Addicts:

  1. We admit we are powerless over STEEM – that our homes have become unmanageable.

  2. We come to believe that a Hard Fork is greater than ourselves and could restore us to sanity.

  3. We make a decision to turn our will and our sanity over to the care of @catweasel as he is a Doctor.

  4. We make a searching and fearless curation of ourselves.

  5. We will admit to the STEEM community, to ourselves and to @ancapbarbie the exact nature of our shit posts.

  6. We are entirely ready to have @ulogsnookian remove all these defects of character.

  7. We humbly ask her to prohibit our tight assed ways.

  8. We will make a list of persons we have flagged, and become willing to do it again.

  9. We will make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would really piss us off.

  10. We will continue to post and pray for a Curie.

  11. We will seek through Discord to improve our conscious contact with Steemians as we understand the community, searching only for self-aggrandizement at P.Y.P.T. and Talk-of-the-Line.

  12. If all else fails, get shit faced! NOT TWO FACED!

omg hilarious! Your 12 steps are freaking funny, my friend. As is the rest of it. No we don't have a perfect country, not even a little bit, but it's a step up from the mess down south.

My Government Officials may not be perfect but they are damn good looking and polite.

lmao! Yep. I'll take pretty boy over the orange idiot any day. I don't trust either of them, but I'd still rather have the good looking, polite one.

So would we, believe me. So would we. ;-)

If it would, I'd have fixed it myself last night 150 times over.

LMAO!!! That was awesome @artemisnorth. First off, Happy Birthday, as this is the most important, even above the awesomeness of Canda Day ;)

Thank you for the 12 step program. ROFL!!! I am sooooo guilty of hitting that refresh button to no avail. I gave up last night in frustration haha wish I had your list then =D

Cheers and Happy #ulogging!!

Thanks for coming by! Did you break Steem? LOL!!

lol I am good but not that good LOL ;)

damn good looking indeed, it was trending in PI when he was visiting here long time ago..hahaha..

Right? LOL!!! Thanks!

Thank you! Ulogs do rock!!

Well, born in 67, I have 10 years on you... I'm not old, I'm ancient. Happy Birthday! We spent our canada day trying not to melt in the midst of this heatwave. Here in Windsor, we have the huge fireworks display that we share with detroit. I missed it this year, my wife had fallen earlier in the week and wasn't up to going. So we stayed home, and "listened" to the fireworks while having a few cold beverages. Thank you for the 12 steps program, when I have time I will try to decipher them so I may understand completely! just for you, some Birthday fireworks!

Wonderful! Thanks for the fireworks! My husband was originally from Windsor....I just kayak there. I hope your Lady heals quickly. Great to hear from you.

Happy Birthday, and thanks for this hilarious post!

My favorite parts:

  1. We will admit to the STEEM community, to ourselves and to @ancapbarbie the exact nature of our shit posts.

  2. We are entirely ready to have @ulogsnookian remove all these defects of character.

  3. We humbly ask her to prohibit our tight assed ways.

The whole thing is a riot, so thanks again, and I may just have to post this in my office . . . and see how long it takes Marek to notice what it actually says.

That could be fun. ;-)

I'm bookmarking this for the next time steem is down and I need some therapy! oh wait.... if steem is down..

Ha ha, love the 12 step!

All Steemians must recite the 12 step creed before accessing the fabled blockchain. To do otherwise is sacrilege. Give thanks to the chain, and may the SBD remain pegged.

Good for you that you said no to steem for a weekend with your Grandson. It really can suck you in 😄

And I am glad that you caught the midnight fireworks.

steem addiction is a real thing. denial of it is just proof of that addiction. may you find help friend...and help others with your hard forking list!

Love your TWELVE STEPS! joy.png

LOL, you made me laugh!

I think it's good to take a day or two off of Steemit (and Discord!) as well from time to time. I'm not good at it. I at least do some peaking on times I decide to not post. Gosh. Sign me up for that 12-step program :D

I'm sorry... when is Canada Day?

I like this line:

My Government Officials may not be perfect but they are damn good looking and polite.
