Post #7696992

This past year we have brainwashed several people into joining the cult (Good Job Team!). Unfortunately, we failed to establish an initiation fee or character standards, so the cult is filled with cheap riff-raff. If you are cheap riff-raff, by all means post here and I might add you to the list. The only requirement is online participation (and it helps if you have thick skin).

I started this list when I was first recruited and thought it might be useful for others. If you can fill in the blanks or if I've missed anyone or I misspelled something; please post on this thread because there is about a 40% chance I'll correct it. A few members have managed to escape the cult and are hiding in the desert, l but I think it is pretty complete as of June 2011. In order of riff-raffiness:

I know I qualify as MIA - but I have been lurking now and then! The morning, noon, and night sickness has finally passed and I'm working like mad to get as much done in the garden as possible before it gets way too hot (and I get way too huge). I have pics of my (now long gone) tulips that I'll try to post some time this week.

I need to look up plants for a friends garden I told her I'd do for her on top of all of the other things have to deal with. The good thing is that my 6' tall Plumie is the center of attraction behind her pool. :-)

Anna: please provide personal stories to prove that you are indeed cheap when it comes to gardening (we appreciate dumpster diving, adapting broken washing machines into composters, dollar store finds, etc).

We also need proof that you are riff-raff (we always accept public freak-outs and passed out in the snow stories).

Thx.

Rene, I don't have a lot of thrifty about gardening stories since I've been living in apartments for the last 10 years. I do love craigslist though ;) Anywho, I have just moved into a house that has dirt for the front yard and the back yard is a pool with...yep, more dirt. I'm pretty darn broke (thank you student loans) so I will have to be super cheap when it comes to redoing my yard. I do want it to awesome though so I'm going to have to get creative. Suggestions are always welcome. I may have to start a journal about the progress. To be honest, it's a little intimidating.

As far as the riff raff is concerned...I think I can hang. If I can hang with this guy, I think I should be alright :)

I just happened upon this thread and I can’t figure out what it is about or what it takes to be a member other than being riff-raff, which is I thought, is the name of my favorite character in The Rocky Horror Show. After reading a number of posts, obviously insanity isn’t a limitation to belonging. I might need to follow this for a bit longer before I decide if I want to be a member. The fact that there are no “dues” does appeal to me (does this qualify me as riff-raff?) I will start working on my story evidencing that I am riff-raff just in case I need it.

Ok, here’s my story. I live in a single-wide mobile home that is propped up on cinder blocks. That alone should qualify me as riff-raff, but wait, there’s more. I went to Wal-Mart the other day and purchased 40 strawberry plants. I ended up needing 2 more to fill my space. I went back to Wal-Mart and told them that I had counted wrong and only got home with 38 plants. They let me take 2 more plants meaning I got a total of 42 plants but only paid for 40. That should be the clincher that qualifies me as cheap riff-raff. Come on guys, what do you think?

As to being cheap, I only buy plants from Wal-Mart in the clearance bins and buy all my Hawaiian shirts @ thrift stores. Wearing Hawaiian shirts also qualifies me as riff raff, as does my constant dodging of bill collectors. I come from a long line of cheapskate riff raff, so much so that when I was a kid, my dad took us out to collect cow pies because he was too cheap to buy manure (true story). And I come from a town that was so small, for entertainment, we went to the drug store to try on gloves. After we moved to the city, we found out the farmer who grew soybeans behind our house was plowing and planting 20' of our back yard, proving the whole town was nothing but riff raff.

If this isn't reason enough to keep me out, then sign me up.

There have been few people asking to join our cult ever since I appointed myself president. Do you think that there is a correlation? Or is there just a limited population of riff raff on this website. A lot of the riff raff are probably over there on the Tomatoville website.

I wanted to share my great news. Due to a huge windfall inheritance I just received from a dearly departed uncle, I will be leaving my old trailer park. I never met the man because he spent most of his time in jail, but everyone in the family lovingly referred to him as Billie Sue Laura Jean’s (my mom) weird brother. My concern is that I may no longer qualify as riff raff. I plan on spending all of the $724.32 I received on moving to a new trailer park. There I’ll be renting a slightly smaller single-wide trailer, but it’s got a cement block front porch with a nice view of the scrap metal yard next door. And the best part is that I’m only 30 minutes by bicycle from the nearest Dollar General Store where I‘ll try and get a part-time job as a greeter. I could really use that 5% employee discount so I can buy more plastic pots. If I no longer qualify, is it possible to grant me a riff raff waiver so I can still be a member of the cult?

hrp50,

As long as you're not paying full price @ Dollar General and still in a single-wide, I believe the consensus would be that a waiver is not required. If your new-found wealth allows you to to be upwardly social enough to either move into a double-wide or get one of them fancy bicycles with a motor, then we'll have to reconsider your qualifications.

I’m not sure how much longer I can remain as President of this fine cult. My part-time job as greeter at the Dollar General Store is limiting the time I have to properly fulfill my responsibilities. Also my bicycle keeps breaking down and I'm having to walk to work more and more frequently which cuts down on my free time. Plus the scrap metal yard next door has added a night shift and there’s so much noise that I don't get much sleep. Lastly, the law is on my tail because my single-wide doesn’t meet the city code standards of this “upscale” trailer park and I have to spend time fixing it up so it will pass inspection. You know, things like putting in an indoor toilet, fixing the kitchen sink so it doesn't empty out into the yard, getting rid of the stack of old used tires out back, etc. I will try to hold on for as long as I can because I can’t see anybody else doing as good of a job as me.

Tell the city the kitchen sink is part of a "graywater" reuse system, the outhouse is really as composting facility and the used tires are raised bed planters; that should take care of your housing issues. Since the bike keeps breaking down, take it next door to the scrap yard and see if you can get a job there on the night shift; transportation and sleeping issues solved. Now you have even more time than you used to for fulfill your executive duties. Wasn't that easy?

My clutch went out n I had to fix it myself (I used to love working on cars when I was younger, but these days although I would rather not, I'm glad to have a bit of know-how). Luckily it was just the slave cylinder and a fluid bleed. A messy but not terribly labor intensive job (but doesn't my neck and shoulders just HATE being flat on my back under that truck reaching up? I'm still sore!) Brake job needs to be done soon, but I'm saving my pennies. I don' wanna do eeet! Wahhhhhh...

Ok. Time to apply for cult membership. Since I came from inland SoCal I considered myself from the southwest already, but enjoyed dual citizenship with the Ca Forum. Now we are in AZ and at an elevation where thet scarily talk about 'winter' coming. I see more of the cult members are from warmer climes. I know of many of you and have met three who crossed over to the CA Round Ups.

As far as being riff raff we bought this foreclosure house on 2.5 acres for cheap, cheap but paid cash and have nothing left for fixing it up. Nothing fancy to do just no HVAC, flooring etc. Since moving here we have heard from neighbors (and some as far away as Verde Valley) about the former occupants here. Mom was a hoarder using hose in house for water at one point swell as the tubs as toilets (for ALL waste!). Oh, btw, her son MURDERED a neighbor two years ago. yes, he is in jail. On a much more minor note, although this house (dbl wide) went in ten years ago, not one plant or one ounce of concrete has gone in. There is a large deck that they used plywood on instead of decking and we risk falling through if we don't step where nail pattern is.

There, I have said it. Do I qualify for membersip??

Paying cash may sound big time but the foreclosure price was close to what original buyer paid to have well and septic put in. Not including land and house. Go figure we still can't afford to do anything more. See, Jo, we could not have bought your daughter's house in spite of
having you as a fun neighbor. But we have a great view!

Keep learning new stuff about previous occupants. This week killer boy was found mentally incompetent for trial and this month will get his mental ward sentence. Could be as few years as 16 years less 2 years he has been in jail. Family of killed neighbor said from NC to get ready to lock our doors. Wonderful!

Mountaindweller - those are prison booking photos of my great-grandfather. Only Indiana & Ohio have copies. Oklahama no longer has the photos. I also found a jail term with no photo. I am blue blood riff-raff. The first photo is a prison Bertillion card. There was a time when scientists thought you could identify a criminal by their physical characteristics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphonse_Bertillon

What is your first name?

Roadrunner-that's what you need! just put a horse in your parking space- a fence, some hay, and you've got transportation right there! Nobody would notice!

I still he looks like an actor I've seen in something recently. My names Julia. My maiden name was Fosmo, I believe my great grandfather came from Nova Scotia. He did time too, but I'll have to ask my dad to refresh my memory on what for. Still working on my riff-raff proof-I married an awfully un-riff-raffy guy so if I do think of something we gotta keep it on the down low.

His specialty was forgery, so I guess that's a kind of acting. Wearing a bow tie in your booking photo also adds some glamour. Everyone remember that when you are helping neighbor "prune" their plants while they are on vacation.

well...I'm riff raff lurking in DG because I'm a desert gardener wannabe (I moved to Tucson two years ago from the Pacific Northwest where gardening was a snap.)

I bought a small townhouse that, instead of a garden, has one hundred thousand pavers. But here's two photos showing one of the tiny little gardens in this sea of pavers. Looking one way and you will see that I have planted a saguaro. It's a South American saguaro. I got greedy and chose it instead of a native, hoping to see an arm bust out in my lifetime! Riff raff.

And, looking the other way you can see where an ugly barbeque and sink, surrounded by more pavers used to be. I removed them, but here it sits...and I haven't gotten around to repairing the wall and getting out the plumbing. I'm too busy obsessing about what would be perfect to plant here. So many plants and so little space! Notice the tasteful aluminum foil rubber-banded to the top of the drain pipe. Riff raff.

It's nice to know I won't gross anyone out with my riff raffedness because the standards here are set so low. In fact, it will be difficult to get under the bar unless I'm a snake, which I'm not. My ex-husband might disagree, but that's another thread...

Jeesh, I can't even get these images to load right!

We haven't had officers in a while, though there were a few of us vying to be president a few years ago, basing our qualifications on just how riff-raffy we were, but then we realized that being president would probably disqualify us for membership in the group.

I don't know. My qualifications were questioned last year and her yard looks ALOT nicer!

BTW, to add to our riff-raff qualifications, we have challenged the tax assessors office and after their visit they are listing us as 'damaged and destroyed' also adding (after getting my permission) 'salvage', lowering our 'value' by close to $30K. They asked if we had bought it without seeing it...

Well yes, I see I need to enlighten you all. I was referring to a super strong dude who's not the sharpest tool in the shed. There. Now you all know.

And, since being accused of being high-class riff-raff, I've decided NOT to cut down my former outdoor bar's pipes and drain in the front garden. Instead, I'm going to use them for doing my laundry in my wheelbarrow, right there in the garden! No longer will I need to walk the long, 14 miles to the laundromat, dragging my wash behind me in a burlap bag. Plus, I can use the adobe wall for hanging the wash out to dry! Pretty clever, huh! Thanks for the laundry idea, Jo!

Lots better than the wheelbarrow... This muliticolored rubber garden tubs with handles that you can get at Walmart are the perfect size for hauling your rinse water to your plants, and you just can't do a good load of laundry without one of those big yellow Rubbermaid mop buckets that let you squeeze the water out! You gotta do riff-raff smart!
And if this doesn't earn me those coveted credentials, nothing will! Oh, and my teapot is a quart mason jar, custom homemade cozy to match! And to top it off, the special Family Dollar cup warmer! The cup cozy helps.
Don't know why my pics are sideways!

I don't get seed catalogs, as I get most of my seeds by trading. Besides, the weather is nice enough during the winter that I don't need to peruse "seed porn" to get my gardening juices going.
