AN ORDINARY LIFE IN AN EXTRAORDINARY WORLD.

Hey, how come my blog posts are not racking up 10,000 comments as of late? Come on people, show me some love! I desperately need it.

I'm moody this week. Cranky even. I'm having the office cubicle blues again. W
hilst Mikey Phelps is in China becoming an Olympic legend, stuffing his face, and amassing legions of drooling fans who want to marry the goofy sexy MoFo, what is WAT doing? Working in a pretty ordinary routine job! Now I know I'm not supposed to be comparing my life to others, but this is how I often feel, and what I fatally always do. Yes, I keep hearing how grateful and thankful I should be that at least I have an income and steady work unlike so many out there who are struggling in this crappy economy, but the fact that I am not doing something amazingly astoundingly extraordinary is really making me cringe. It's the media's fault right? That we can do whatever we want, that our dreams are always within our reach, that nothing can nor should stop us from becoming truly great! OH BALONEY! PHOOEY FOO FOO! It's such a crock! A LOAD MAN! Why wasn't I taught in school, that most of us are going to have pretty routine uneventful ordinary lives and that only a select few are destined for superstardom greatness?! You gotta work hard for it WAT, and frankly my friend, I think you're a bit too lazy and not motivated enough!

Hey, I have b
een accused of regurgitating the news that everybody already knows, so I guess I'll continue with that tradition! That scientist that killed himself last week; the FBI wants to call him the lone Anthrax attacks suspect. This is one very suspicious story! Are we expected to believe this guy acted alone and that he killed himself by overdosing on Tylenol and codeine? Man, the official story stinks worse than my elementary school cafeteria trash bins! That guy was murdered or scapegoated just to "close the case" and move on. And Russia invaded its former Soviet province and all these people are dead now and shit and China will eventually take over Taiwan probably and no one will be able to stop these powers from taking over territory that they claim as theirs and Bush and company can blow all the hot air they want, but do absolutely nothing about it because our military is already stretched thin and frankly it's best we don't intervene anyway because we got a shitload of problems as it is and we need to clean our house first before we meddle into other people's affairs anyway.

Paul Newman was a handsome man, and I'm afraid to say he might be at the end of his illustrious life. That was some good salad dressing he made too.

Well that is one the sad facts of life which is both the media, scholastic, and religious enviroment sells you the false notion that your "special". George Carlin even had a routine on it I believe on how idiotic that we have becomea society that thinks every little life is "precious", "a gift", or "special". As all of us have to come to learn its a complete struggle from day to day.
Sure each of us may have talents, but they will go unnoticed. Just like many of us are unloved and ignored. Not everyone is important or does matter. The majority of people are expendable in are own microcosms.
Basically I live life like this, whomever is in my circle is importance and worth the effort. Every individual I know or show interest in. Everything/everyone else can all drown or burn, for what I care. We need to learn to close ourselves and only deal with what he have and know. If the next person whom we don't know falls so be it it is God's will.
Bwahahahahahah Bwahahahaha

Comments are down? How about initiating a dialogue in your comment section? Or are you one of those purists who wouldn't do such a thing as engage one-on-one with your readers? Sorry for the snarky tone.

Oh...and why so whiney? I thought you were on your way to becoming a teacher. What little bump in the road derailed that aspiration? Stop feeling sorry for your self and MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Hey Wat, just stopped by to see how you're doing--take care.

Dennis totally understands bad days and how they can temporarily make you feel like crap. Today is hair day and here's my gripe about human guys and hair. Dennis is bugged when guys say "I have a full head of hair." BS! Dennis has a FULL HEAD of hair! Humans don't have a complete head of hair, unless they turn into werewolves at night. Wat, do you think werwolves are real? Because if they are that would be terrible. Dennis has seen a few werewolf movies and they really freaked him out.

Besos my atomic friend. Take comfort knowing you are within a blast zone and if it ever does happen, you will not even know it. Thats what keeps me going!

I do feel bad about Mr. Newman. But that's how things are. At least he did a hell of a lot of living and has loving daughters, wife with him now.

Squirrel said...

ps--- hope you can visit NYC.

Wat! Dude! (and I call you Dude sincerely, Dude! )

The Taco Man is back from his travels and has got a whole new image. That's what ya gotta do when you feel bad, Jazz things up. I'm reading beat poetry and stuff. I might buy a fedora.

Oh Man, you are in a bad mood! Things always shift and then shift back again. But you can achieve anything, it just takes a lot of work and sometimes it takes sacrifice.

Enthusiasm comes and goes, as does the recognition of self-worth. When we are in the presence of excellence, do we always have to feel so drab by comparison?? Maybe you have a longing for mass love, which is actually very shallow, empty and fleeting.

I don't know how to adjust your expectations and not be disapointed with your contributions to this life. I just know that on the grand scale, your efforts are only satisfying for a short while. On a smaller, more realistic measure, you could change a life with just your words. I think that's major.

Because of your post, I watched CABARET last night.

when you say he made some good salad dressing, I am curious, did he ever toss your salad, too? ;-)
