piss off if you're here to raise the dead, bono!

Do you really not care? Did you start the day out thinking you would try and be more interested and accepting of the world in all its vagaries? Did you see the NYTimes quote of the day and, in outrage, begin an eloquent blog on how Mr. Bush makes the mothers of Sparta sound like divinely inspired poets, only to leave it all unsaid because there really are so many sides to the issue and you can't disrespect human life (even if you can human intelligence)? Have you and romance - the honest-to-goodness sort - been on unspeaking terms for the last several years because you can't be bothered to invest in yet another human being who, from the very outset, is not anything like the person you expected to get special with in your maiden dreams and doesn't particularly promise to shape up like one? Is Bono's earnest pomposity getting on your nerves even though you love U2 with every particle of your soul? Are you listening to Tan Dun and Yo-yo Ma prostituting themselves on the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon soundtrack instead? Have you left unread a book all the people you respect raved about because you couldn't get past the tedium of the first two pages? Are you apathetic, agnostic, disgruntled, dispassionate or just bone-tired today?

Party on my blog. Bring food of choice, rum's on me.

Endnote to amuse me anyway: I love rum even though I don't drink alcohol except in a medical way - and I've done a fair bit of that this past month. First, it tastes great. Second, it reminds me of Johnny Depp in his finest hour in that work of inspired genius, Pirates of the Caribbean: "BUT WHERE HAS ALL THE RUM GONE?"

    but i must ask... has Bono been up to something again? it's impossible to catch up with his varimanious activist activities, methinks.

    HELP! The binaries that my world is upon are crumbling!

    An endnote that does not amuse me:
    Maybe I should give up rum to balance things out.

  4. @june: not that i know of. i was just listening to 'one' and hating on the fact that it's such a beautiful, nasty little piece of a love song until he comes up with that 'sisters, brothers' tripe in a falsetto that doesn't even sound as good as it did in '87.

    *leaves the chicken, takes the grease*

    @kate: the general tone of your comment seems to indicate that you miss me, and i miss you too, immensely, but who is this 'ya' who keeps cropping up in our conversations? is he some new cool tibetan friend of yours? i'm jealous.

    @viv: i never said i would never drink alcohol, i only said that most of it tasted bad, and none of it is necessary to make me spontaneously giggle/dance badly/slur my words/throw up like a dog in front of all and sundry.

    "welcome to the carribeaaaan!"
