I was speaking with a friend about it and he said he was going through the same kind of thing. He had different reason, none of which were major. I sat back and thought about the worst thing in my life as of now and whether that could be the cause. So I thought about a couple of things: job being boring, TV checking out to the big signal in the sky, chick that fucked around with my head leaving the firm, trying to find a bowling alley for my brother's party, not having replaced the back screen door yet though I said I would in Spring, having no food in the house even though I was shopping last Wednesday. In the end I looked at the list- see nothing terrible- and came to the conclusion.
The absolute worst thing in my life is my TV breaking.
I think it the root there is that I have a sudden outlay of money (I did buy a new TV that will be delivered by Friday. Yeah, I went hi def, but only cuz it was just a bit more. I think I got a good deal). I can effectively plan for things I know will cost me. Trips, taxes, insurance. But when things break, I feel the need to jump into action. I have had too many sudden expenses this year. It is finally pissing me off.
Thus my funk.
Should I be complaining about the way things are for me? Not really. All those items are things I have control over. Not even close to end of the world happenings. And it isn't even a terrible funk that I am in. I just feel like I am floating through the waters of life, not accomplishing something at this time.
So why am I in a funk?
Maybe it is because of stupid "news" articles like this one. Once again, .0001 percent of Americans is suppose to be the view of the entire nation? Who are these 1047 people that were polled? What is their political affiliation? Where do they live? Do they watch the news? Do they follow what is happening in Iraq? If so, from more than one source? What sources? Do they question the media? And how do they represent my fuckin view?!?!?!?!
Some of these respondents said we should set a timetable for withdrawal. That is still the stupidest idea I have ever heard. Hey terrorists, we are going to leave the country to fend for themselves on November 1st. Just thought we would let you know. Like they wouldn't wait to cause more problems and take over after the main line of defense has left? That is like a bank announcing
You know what would happen.
Hey, I feel better now.
