I guess, like just about many other folks, I have had been thinking about politics, the economy, and a host of other problems that seem to be knocking on our door every week.
Well, I think it's high time we stop worrying about all the bullshit that is going on these days.
I mean it's kinda futile, isn't it?
When you expend energy thinking upon the stupidity of others it does at least two things to you. The first is that it makes you agitated and that can ruin your day by causing you to lose sight of all the good things surrounding you. The second is that it could make you stupid as well by bringing your mental faculties down to the level of sub-moronic.
See what I mean.
Why the hell I am holding the most ridiculous spork ever produced by man is a mystery even to me. One of the people I work with brought it in to amuse us and it was the highlight of the day.
At least it took my mind off the ass whipping Japan gave America in the World Classic Baseball Tournament.
Here is another example of someone who knows what to do in times of media exaggerated turmoil and strife. Kurt, over at OPE has recently sent me his bi-monthly zine. Actually he sent it to me a while ago judging by the postmarks on the innumerable amount of stamps covering the envelope, but it wasn't until last week Wednesday that I recieved it.
Response was overwhelming.
It was this object of irreverent humour that finally struck the chord that has been missing in the symphony of my daily musings.
I reckon that maybe I have been taking life a little too seriously and it's time to just throw my hands in the air, after putting the spork down first, of course, and let my funy bone take me for a ride.
I might just be irresponsible. I might be avoiding reality. I might even be somewhat childish in my way of thinking. If I am well, so be it- adults don't have all that much fun anyway.
Take it easy all.
I'm off to watch some Marx Bros.
Hope you go do something similar and tell me all about it.
