What the Mek?

These people. I don't get it. They know about us.

When we introduced ourselves did we forget to mention refrigerators, microwaves, comfortable clothes, the joys of not wearing sticks on ourselves? Why do they choose to continue without toilets and television?

I know I sound really stupid about this, because it's their culture and blah, blah, blah. And most likely, last time I was in the mall, some lady at the Nordstrom make-up counter saw me and thought, 'I don't get it, we have high heels, wonderful cosmetics, and fashionable clothes she could wear, why would she go around looking so primitive?' At least I assume people like that judge me because I'm so judgemental, as you already know. Even in that last sentence - "people like that". I can't stop. So I judge the mek too.

Well, at least they don't have to worry about paying the utility and insurance bills on time. They've got that on us.

It looks like they are enjoying a great big pot of RAW HAMBURGER MEAT. THank God modern civilization nukes that stuff and puts special sauce on it. *shudder*

Hi You dont know me and I dont know you but I happened to come across your blog because I got a little click happy.

Thanks for providing it!

Lorrie and Lauri, you guys have made my day. I love comments more than I love chocolate, (unless it's that time of the month) and comments from people I don't know are the highest form of flattery in my sad little world. Thanks.
And Lorrie, great memory:).

I think you should post a pic of your feet when we went camping just to show how close to the mek you really can get. & remember that yak we shot in the neck & then Ben knelt down and drank blood from its belly before we circumsize him...that was come camping trip!

oh my gosh!! I seriously cannot even believe that people live like this!! Can you imagine no running water, no light, no chocolate, no birth control! ugh! that is just terrible! I did better :)

I love the Mek!

I wouldn't want to live with them or visit them or anything like that but I do enjoy learning about them on Discovery or the Travel Channel.

I want to hear more about the camping trip where the Yak was killed.

(BTW thanks for the comment on my blog. That's why I'm here!)
