Biting My Nails All Morning
Italy's new Prime Minsiter President Chancellor Ruler King is - -
Every morning I come to work and listen to the news (wait let me update that statement - I listen to the BBC World news). So I listen to real news and not fuckin, whatever news we have about babies eating tires and old people dying of heat exhaust, or whatever opEd trivial human interest shittastic story that is going on in Iowa today.
For example, this morning jas and I were driving to work and there was this horrible story about a 6 year calling 911 to say that his Mom had fallen and gone to sleep
. The operator then told the child to stop playing on the phone and the woman died due to lack of response time. While this is an interesting piece of interest it is no where near as important as other things that go on under our noses and over our headds on a daily basis. Basically, we have no interest in the things we can't change, don't want to know about, or feel are too big for our little minds. We would much rather talk about a dead woman in Kentucky and the human error factor that caused it. There is nothing wrong with this state of mind to a degree, but there is definitely something wrong with the way our news is delivered. Anyway...
But today and all last week I caught myself really interested in the Italian Prime Minister race. I have been hearing about both candidates and following their views and values and today I actually couldn't wait to tune in and see who won. And then i stopped and said "What the fuck am I doing?"
I need a life.
