With your Host, Category5 and, Oh, wait…..YOU!
Special welcome to the 21 visitors and one subscriber on Christmas day. That is SOOOO depressing. That you chose to spend it with me. Not a big fan of the hallmark holiday because it IS so depressing. It epitomizes unrealistic expectations. Nowhere to go but down.
I spent the day, hung over in bed, playing video games. It was a great christmas. One of my best. Mythos, Logos and myself had a fantastic holiday avoidance bash that involved seasonal enchiladas and passing out while watching Team America. I hope I wasn’t snoring or drooling. I could not have asked for more.
Only one more drinking holiday to get through.
That New Years thing.
Now, collapse commentators do have a tradition of waxing philosophical on the past year and making predictions for the year ahead. I have done some of this myself and I can generally say, “called it!” but for the last couple of years…that has been pretty easy.
I find myself saying, “More of the same”.
Or More, More of the same. Since I used that before, I guess this is More, More, More of the same.
Nothing big. More of the same, economic decline, burning forests, unstable weather, mass shootings and saber rattling. His Hairness needs a war to stay in office but I am not seeing it. He is too weak. If it happens, it will happen in the next few days. Big W Leaks is onto something….but…I am predicting, just the usual we already know.
In case you think that is a boring cop out… just remember how boring last year was. YOU are just getting USED TO IT.
More of the same. Maybe a hurricane or two less this year. More Polar Vortexes though. That is an easy prediction.Remember a couple years back when no one had heard of them before and the Right said it was a Leftist Plot and meteorologists were opening old text books to point to the phenomena.
Wait. There is More. When I say, More of the same, this may give you the impression that it is a static arraignment, imbued with permanence. A better way to put it would be…
More of the same…with 2% compounding interest.
MrsC5 adds, “I am realizing that as I get older I like people less and less”. That about sums up the mess we are in
I have learned about myself that I don’t write as well when I am cold and it is winter dark. I had hoped to be a winter writer. MrsC5 always hoped for a winter book… but not so. I started to write one. It sucked.
Fear Not. I will be back in the sun soon. Barbados awaits… but the last time I headed south…. Hotmail and the internet of things made it impossible to get back online for months. Just encase this happens again, you know what happened to me.
Plus, It may take a month or so to process what I am observing
In the mean time… I’m doing what I said I WOULD NOT DO.
I’m Opening COMMENTS. Just this once. This is your New Years PURGE. Tell me “WHAT YOU REALLY THINK”.
Of ME. Of this blog. Of the world. Of The Other in 1984 fashion. Your predictions. Or your Survival Advice. Have Att’er
Out with the Old. In with the new.
What could possibly go wrong?
