05 April 2005


Given a sudden and possibly fleeting affirmation that continuity is the key (much in the same way that 42 is the answer), I decided it was imperative to create a post today before wrenching myself from the computer and doing the ever-more-urgent 'real stuff'.

"Whats an easy cop-out?" thinks I.
"A Joke!" me answers, as the hairs on my palms start to itch.

End result: two hours surfing jeeves looking for something suitably witty and amusing, to no effect, a loss of temper and enthusiasm and this bloody miserable ranting entry.

I did find a couple of fitting thoughts for the day:

- As I let go of my feelings of guilt, I can get in touch with my Inner Sociopath.

- I have the power to channel my imagination into ever-soaring levels of suspicion and paranoia.

- I honour my personality flaws, for without them I would have no personality at all.

- Joan of Arc heard voices too.

- I am grateful that I am not as judgmental as all those censorious, self-righteous people around me.

- I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain.

- All of me is beautiful and valuable, even the ugly, stupid, and disgusting parts.

- I am at one with my duality.

- Blessed are the flexible, for they can tie themselves into knots.

- Only a lack of imagination saves me from immobilizing myself with imaginary fears.

- Does my quiet self-pity get to me? Yes? Or should I move up to incessant nagging?

- Today I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so."

- False hope is nicer than no hope at all.

- A good scapegoat is nearly as welcome as a solution to the problem.

- The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign that the conspiracy is working.

- I am learning that criticism is not nearly as effective as sabotage.

- To have a successful relationship I must learn to make it look like I'm giving as much as I'm getting.

Enjoy xx

I suddenly remembered a REALLY GOOD JOKE tonight when I was with some friends, and the moment was perfect for telling it... and then the waiter suddenly appeared with our food and I forgot. When I remembered again the moment had passed.

I hate that. I now have a free-falling joke in my head, looking for a place to land.

Puts me in mind of something I wrote in an email to a client just this morning: (I felt smug that a single search of Google produced what looks like the correct quote)

Like the famous words from "Gone with the Wind" ..... "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tommorrow." Maybe not tomorrow - when the need arises!

Hey-ho, good job I'm on good terms with the peeps who pay me to sit at home and do work for them. :)

PS. Badaunt - you know your duty or are you still waiting for the right moment?
