“Buy local or buy less…” should be everyone’s motto. You’d have to be a complete dimwit if you are asking why your town is slowly becoming a generic dying cliche. Drunken internet shopping, and I’m not just talking about boozing up and spending money you don’t have on stuff you desire. I am talking about consuming. Each one of us, an entity worse than the “fictional Dracula“.
I’m not even sure why I’m on this rant. Maybe I was set off by a local FB post of the needs of an orphan whose good samaritan spokespersons top priority was asking for an Xbox! Technological consumerism, over perhaps – a secure home and a loving family to fill that tragic emptiness?…
Woke up this morning with the theme song of The Jetsons in my head. After humming a few notes my husband started humming the theme song of The Simpsons. It turned into a pretty great duet, but then somewhere in the middle it all just became one jumbled mess. Then neither of us could hum either song without messing up.
Updated 7pm: I think fish is the theme of the day. Collective cosmic unconsciousness. Went to the post office & the local brewery and both places people were talking about fish. Just like in Repo Man “plate-o-shrimp”.
