Just Keepin' It Real, Y'all

Is anyone else getting tired of photos and descriptions of fancy houses, fancy food, and fancy parties on this site? I think I'm veering off toward the pretentious again. We all know that no one really lives like that all the time. With the possible exception of Martha Stewart, and I'm not entirely convinced she's human. Plus, she has like a million employees, and I bet my house would look that good all the time if I had people to clean and fix everything for me.


In the interests of full disclosure and de-pretentioning (IT'S A WORD NOW, OKAY?), I present documentation of straight-up redneck life. This is A. in the pasture cutting up the old Jeep for scrap metal. Note the sheep in the background, doing their best to make the scene pastoral and bucolic.

In my part of upstate NY, we wouldn't cut up a beautiful Jeep like that for scrap. We'd park it in the front yard as a lawn ornament.

Will you hate me when I tell you I actually like Martha? She's pretty hilarious in those new Macy's commercials. Plus, she so didn't deserve to go to jail. She should've done community service. She could've shown some underprivileged kids how to iron or how to properly frost a cake. You know, something useful, rather than sitting in a jail cell for nothing.

Actually, I used to watch Martha Stewart's old TV show. I don't have anything against her, I just think she doesn't need to pretend that everything is ALWAYS perfect. And Caroline? A. would LOVE to live where you do, without any pesky women to tell him he can't leave his junked-out cars in the front. But he lives here. With me. And so the Jeep is scrap.

Martha doesn't pretend everything is always perfect. Everything IS always perfect!

I watch some of those shows and think....'who lives like that?'

Certainly not me or my friends.
Thanks for keepin' it real!

I have to say, I wondered why you didn't just leave it there and you use it as a lawn ornament. It could have been an abstract art sort of thingie!
PS: I secretly tape episodes of Martha and watch them late at night. Don't tell the neighbors.

I think that's my old car. Seriously.

My parents told me it "went to live on a farm."
