Have had so very much to say, that I’ve not been able to select anything in particular to expound upon. So, I haven’t.

A no-particular-order list of things that have been on my mind:

  • David Laws is an utter tit head – you might want to keep your private life private, but that’s not the way to do it – especially since you have no NEED for the money, you should just have claimed nothing, and no-one would have looked into it! Tit!
  • CameronClegg – ugh, it’s sickening, and smug, and I’m still afraid of what it will mean.
  • Labour Leadership – well, I support David Miliband for the leadership, but hope the contest WILL be open and lead to a reinvigoration of the party root and branch.
  • Health – I’m still struggling with getting my asthma under control, but am hopeful that the latest addition to the medication panoply will make a difference. Fingers very much crossed!
  • Life direction – we have possibly reached a decision which will give both of us new direction, but any more than that will have to wait ….

Well, ok, it’s not ACTUALLY our birthday, but I just noticed that it was a this month last year that we first put our site online, and became adamandwouter rather than Adam and Wouter; an eventful year in many ways, and one which flew by in others. Strange and sad occurrences, and some good things too. I know this sort of retrospective is more common either at new year or on an actual birthday, but sod it, it’s my website! :p

I understand these … they’re part of everyday usage really, I “grew up”, Internet-wise, using and feeling comfortable with them. Recently, however, some young new upstarts have appeared on the scene, and they seem to be taking over, forcing out the familiar LOL and supplanting the comfortable. I refer, of course, to “FML” and “FTW”.

These arrived without my noticing, which is bad enough; like a fogey, I had to ask what they mean. Worse, however, is that even with an explanation, I still don’t really understand them. I can’t put myself in the position where they would be my response; they simply do not resonate with me in the slightest.

So, I’m now reading “Grumpy Old Men“, “Is it just me, or is everything shit?” and all the rest of that ilk and empathising completely with the authors … I guess it’s time to buy some really comfortable slippers, a nice cardigan and possible even a pipe and embrace the decline into old age!

Apparently, it’s the crack of the kitty world! Seriously, little Darcy, on the coffee table, face buried in the margarine tub as though it were going out of fashion! I should probably have stopped him sooner, but there was something truly, outrageously, hilarious about his single-minded determination to get as much partially hydrogenated vegetable fat down his throat as possible. Titter.

You stupid fucking cow! So sanctimonious, so full of your nonsensical “gay cure” bullshit, and you’re up to WHAT?! You vile, cruel, evil, hate-filled, hypocritical, bullshit merchant bitch! Suffer so much, if you don’t mind. Ha!

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

-Carl Sagan, astronomer and writer (1934-1996)
