The Annual Rant
Sorry I haven’t been more receptive with this blog but there hasn’t been heaps to inflict on you. A lot of THIS usually followed by heaps of THAT and being in with the local bike shop gives me the chance to test THESE.
The non blogging malaise is only going to get worse because my body shuts down from about the middle of December until the end of January when signs of intelligent life finally returns to Metropolis.
I loathe Christmas. In fact, I loathe summer with it’s heat and thrip hordes, and yesterday, being the last day of spring and temperatures nudging 40c, doesn’t auger well for my forthcoming disposition.
Don’t you just love listening to “Jingle Bells” in the supermarket which is usually inflicted on ones ears just before Christmas. Like early November! Still, I can get some good fruit mince pies from about October onwards.
Then we have the post Christmas sales; that institution of excessive greed where hordes of bogans mass cheek to jowl outside stores hoping to grab a $500 camera for $490 which they could have bought cheaper online anyway.
You think it’s bad here. Well, it’s an absolute calamity in the US with their post Thanksgiving sales as reported by America’s finest news source, The Onion.
Hopefully I have something less Scroogy and more uplifting to report in my next instalment.
Maybe like Smart meters and the death of the meter reader!
