Thinking up meaningless items to post here when I don’t have time or don’t have the gamma to give you poetry. You see, I had another one of those thinking days that actually bled into two days, beginning at approximately 9:32 am yesterday. I know this, because I was dusting a table and on that table stood a clock, and beside that clock were three dolls made in Peru. This is where it all gets very unrelated and becomes….
RUN ON THINKING by Val
Those Peruvian dolls make me think of tropical climates, although it gets damn frosty in the Andes…nevertheless, I’m still thinking about hot climates, which naturally leads me to the bees. You know, honeybees? Well, apparently they are disappearing everywhere and no one knows why, although several theories abound, from some unknown virus or parasite to cell phones. I’m going with the cell phone thing myself. I think the waves are screwing up their ability to find the hive. Our non stop yapping is altering nature? Not laughable really. I once knew a woman who talked incessantly (no not me) about everything from the price of Qtips to how much salt is really in a Big Mac. Anyway, my point is, we need to shut the fuck up. We talk too damn much. Jaysus…Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Chat roulette, cell phones, iphones, Crackberries, Email, home phone, pagers aaahhhhh! On and on and yet, we don’t really listen to each other. NO ONE listens to anyone. We just yabber yabber yabber all the damn day with a cell phone jammed in our ears. We risk brain cancer and car accidents just to attach that insufferable object to our heads. This brings me to cigarettes. Cell phones are the new cigarette. Don’t believe me? Watch when people use them. I used to smoke, so I know what I’m talking about when we are discussing ball and chain social behavior. They take them out like a pack of cigarettes, flip them open like a pro smoker would tap out a cancer stick and they do it when they are: meeting someone new, on a break, in the car at a stop light, bored, nervous, self conscious and, the most telling time of all: when someone else lights up…err…I mean flips it open. Hmmm causes cancer too but people are so addicted to the constant contact that isn’t really contact at all that they go into denial of brain tumors the way smokers do with lung cancer. There. And all this from two Peruvian dolls on a table. 😉
