Apathy – “lack of interest, enthusiasm, or concern”. This just happens to be my mood of the week (ok, slight under exaggeration…year!!). Go me!!!!! Lucky I don’t have to come up with anything inspiring in an online diary that is actually worth reading………….Just like every album has killers and fillers……..today’s post will be one of those fillers that you skip over in order to hear the good stuff. On that note, perhaps I should rename this blog “12 weeks of filling”…….
Now, till the end of this journey, I would like to make a pledge that I will no longer mention my chronic sleeping issues, because this topic is way up there with conversations about the weather, petrol prices and how many times, some royal family member wore the same dress twice. I will also try very hard to not mention a particular sea creature that I’ve been having a very tumultuous relationship with. He has had far too much air time, and it’s not all about him!! He’s not turning 40 after all…….
Right, now that I’ve removed those 2 topics from my daily repertoire, I guess there’s nothing left to talk about…….Especially if you throw in my lack of interest, enthusiasm and concern………Time to cut and paste some riveting facts about the best way to shave 2 mins off your drive home from work, and the best toilet tissue that gives you more ply for your precious dollar…….Ok maybe not…..I still like to think of myself as somewhat humanitarian….
So today, is a very important one in terms of a little fair that pops into town for 10 days, providing a very important service. A public holiday. How incredible that we are granted a day off work to stuff ourselves with inordinate amounts of imitation (but somewhat delicious), food, throw it up on any ride that even slightly defies gravity (if the price doesn’t do this first…), purchase enough showbags containing sufficient crap, to entertain children for at least 15mins, before reaching it’s predestined landfill accommodation (unless it’s already been choked on…), throwing hundreds of dollars at oscillating clowns and moving targets, in order to win cheap overstuffed toy, that may or may not come apart at the seams before exiting showgrounds, and selling one organ from every family member to pay for the privilege of entering such an event. But hang on. We get a public holiday. Small mercies…..
I guess that takes care of what I didn’t do today then. I did learn 2 important pieces of information though, and prefer to keep my source of such facts classified. The first one was that men apparently don’t care about cellulite on women. Hmmmm, I’m not sure what to make of this. You mean it’s only us females that want to scream, cry, threaten self detonation, and attend to offending sights with machetes when we spot our own, or others’ rippling mounds? I have my doubts……
The second important fact I learnt, which ties in nicely with my anti aging journey (not necessarily going to plan), is that in order to reduce wrinkles, all I need to do is eat sunflower seeds. Why on earth did I not know this already? I guess I will now be seeing out the rest of my natural life hanging out in a sunflower field, chowing down on these seeds, and living it up with the birds. So what if they’re super high in calories and fat. They get rid of wrinkles!!! (I’m pretty sure wine, twisties and caramel ice-cream do too…..).
Ok, my apathy is starting to win here, and having a tv backdrop of someone’s nail bed being hacked into by over keen doctor, is not helping. I realise it is within my power to turn it off, but who doesn’t like to live on the edge a little……oh, and my lack of interest, enthusiasm and concern are preventing me. Perhaps after a good night’s ‘jig saw puzzle’ (code for that word I’m no longer mentioning), I will wake up with a newly inspired attitude………and a love of parallel parking….
