I seem to have transitioned.
I have noticed it over the last few weeks that my thoughts have been somewhat different from a couple of months ago. I don't seem to get angry so often these days and my rants are becoming increasingly sparse.
Maybe it's down to the Silly Season where everyone is on holidays and our gubmint is sunning itself on some distant beach at my expense? Maybe its because the mainstream meeja is still obsessed with that ticket touting shit in Rio and all Twitter seems to Twit about these days is "repeal the 8th".
I came across a post by Liz on Vapingpoint a couple of days ago and she nearly sums up my feelings too –
The "world out there" has gone bonkers!
In the "world out there", I am feeling more and more disappointed and out of step, out of touch, and disillusioned.
There is a large element of that here too. The world is insane and basically I have three choices
1. I can give up the fight and join the rest of the inmates in the asylum.
2. I can fight against it and carry on bashing my head off a brick wall.
3. I can withdraw and just ignore the world as if it didn't exist.
Now those of you who know me know that #1 is utterly out of the question.
#2 is the course I have been sailing for many years, but my head is starting to hurt with all that brick bashing.
So that leaves #3 which seems to be the path I have taken lately. It wasn't any conscious decision; more of a natural drift over the course of a few weeks. I have suddenly noticed that I am writing fluffy shit about libraries or broadband or even inventing surveys for myself. It must be quite some while before I called someone a cunt [apart from the survey when I named three!]?
Maybe this is just like a Summer Flu, and I'll get over it shortly? Maybe when the gubmint gets back they'll start pissing me off again? Actually, that last one is guaranteed. Maybe Doc will put me on some kind of medication? Ony the future can tell.
In the meantime I suppose I'll just carry on with the fluffy stuff.
