Bitch on the Blog

Disenchanted

Just received “failure notice” from email Postmaster. Great news. Reminds me of bringing home A-grades and my father would still take all my work apart  and declare my teachers imbeciles. Was a bit tough at the time, I have to say; decades later I still cry, occasionally, at memory of it. On the positive he taught me a lot and how to up the stakes. And upped the stakes I have. Not that it amounts to much more than being far too demanding of myself.

I know gaelikaa won’t like it, but here it is: Whilst still laughing I am down in the dumps – not deeply, just enough to be annoying.  And I reserve the right to be down in the mouth this very minute. Funnily enough the  first photograph taken of me on my mother’s arm you can tell by my lips that I knew what was to come.  My grandmother called me Sunshine (on account of my big smile and temperament), shortened to Sonny,  so much so that only after she had died (eight years later) I remembered my real name. Some members of my family still call me Sonny. As usual I have  now completely forgotten how I got here. Some discussion over at Jean’s. Yes, global warming, emissions.

It annoys me almost as much as adverts for Detol and whiter than white washing powders. Get a grip people. How did we survive, evolve, for thousands of years before? If we are such a danger to this particular planet why don’t we all just lie down and die? Imagine the compost we’d generate. And not a scientist – or journalist – in sight to tell us what a menace we are. Instead worms will take over the world. Who will plant the roses?

  1. Ursula, you used to be fun. Dark chocolate rather than dairy milk, I’ll grant you. But still. Why have you decided to become the Queen of Suicide Blues? Good God, a visit over here and I come away feeling like …..well ending it all…if I was the sort of person who would do that sort of thing……which I’m not….

    You’re out philosophizing the philosophers Ursula. Your weltzchmerz is doing my head in. You’re out Nietzsche-ing Nietzsche and out Sartre-ing Sartre. Life’s a bitch and then you die. Oh dear, pass the whiskey please. A large one. We might as well pass away pelacefully, that too in a drunken stupor.

    Go over to Ramana’s, he’s got a nice interesting post about ….whatever! That should lighten you up. You need to laugh Ursula. Long and loud. That or else maybe a roll in the hay. But whatever it is, do it fast. You’ll have me Googling for suicide methods next.

    Yours in despair, gaelikaa

  3. OMG, I can’t compete with Ursula’s dark wit & gaelikka’s clever comeback. Alas, I’m just a common type. No wonder they have blogs & I don’t.
