After dark

I'm tired of being mad. I quit.


I'm going to translate

James' two sentences literally--he's going to quit being mad.

If that's not what you meant, buddy, you'll have to come back and explain it. And then we've got you! Hah! :)

That is what I meant.

I quit being mad.

You won't be rid of me that easily.

Much appreciado, pal. :)

But that did get me to thinking about the effects of anger in our daily lives. I've had a few moments this week at work, where I cycled up from mildly irritated to furious over some fairly inconsequential things, and I'm not really sure why. ;/

This must be politics related.

Because I've been in the same boat and the only thing the three of us have in common is BlueNC.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Quite possibly.

Just recently I've been sampling a lot of blogs/MSM website articles and reader comments, and I can't believe how many folks out there lap up the corporate-funded pseudo-scientific bullshit about energy and the environment.

People seem so willing to ignore both common sense and evidence if it will make them feel slightly better about the choices they make to get by in today's world and tomorrow's.

I do love a challenge, but, you know, damn.

I'm glad!

I would have missed you. I'm doing my best not to get mad these days. It's really hard for me. Letting go of anger is really hard.

revolutions in the summertime

I think there is a reason the US and the French declared independence in the summertime. It is this doggone heat! It pushes us to move from "fed up" on the dial to "not gonna take it anymore". Even being mad becomes too much for the energy-draining heat. Either make a revolution or retreat into some cool drinks and a shady tree.

Think about it.

Lots of violence happens in the heat. Carry water with you and offer it to the angry people you see in traffic, etc. :-D

For those inclined to being mad

this should stir some serious outrage.

Of course, it's all just one happy day in Raleigh, where they're rethinking the name of the General Assembly. I've heard they're planning to call it RAG: Realtors Assembled in Greed.
