What’s happening? Until last week I’d manage to get something written every day, I’d obsess, sometimes obsessively so, thinking about what I was going to write. Now I don’t, I still want to write something daily but somehow the day slips by and no blog is written. Maybe I’m just a lazy bastard, I mean all I do is laze around all day not doing a great deal, surely I can at least put a few sentences together. Well this initial post treatment phase is easily the most difficult, painful (physically and mentally) and tiring.
I am only able to sleep up to 2 hours in any one go, more typically it’s about an hour. So I think I’m getting into serious sleep debt. I wake up in the morning feeling more tired than the day before.
There is the possibility that my treatment has somehow impaired my mental functioning, sleeplessness will be compounding this. See, my mind has ‘gone blank’ again and I’ve lost the train of thought I was on, perhaps need to consider other modes of transporting my thoughts, maybe a nice little bicycle of thought will keep me going for a while. Anyway, not going to force it, am off to have my breakfast and hope that something turns up.
So what is worse; to lose your voice or your sense of taste? Stupid question I know but even though I’ve got, hopefully temporarily, loss of both I’d find it hard to choose. My predominant emotion after losing my taste was sadness, on losing my voice frustration and anger.
Were you aware of the anti-Chelsea conspiracy to portray them as a diving team? I know few who read this will care but I have developed a deep antipathy to Moanrino and his Chelski. This supposed conspiracy comes after a few people had commented on the diving tendencies of some Chelsea players. Then when a Chelsea player falls over after being fouled in the penalty area he is given a yellow card instead of a penalty. Now this may have cost Chelsea a win and Moanrino realises this and as ever looks to afford blame elsewhere. I do wish he would go elsewhere, but then I’d be denying Mark’s pantomime pleasure.
I wrote of Podomos in Spain a few weeks ago now Syriza in Greece are taking the limelight. Like Podemos they are a recent phenomena and in a short time have become the leading party. They are against ‘austerity’ and they are causing serious panic in the ‘market’. Now we mustn’t upset the ‘market’ but just do as it bids. Especially not now when the austere approach is beginning to work, except that it’s not beginning to work. All that they tell us about debt is a figment. What happened in 2007 was the falling apart of an unsustainable capitalism, yet it’s the workshy Greeks, British scroungers and of course Gordon Brown who were responsible for all this.
At last we have a serious alternative being offered to a nation and it’s great. There is already serious bribing going on alongside dire warnings from an array of institutions and people, all ultimately funded by the shadowy ones (we must get a name for them David). But I sincerely hope the Greeks vote for Syriza and they get the chance to implement some of their policies which basically amount to helping the poor, sorting out tax fraud and other rich folk shenanigans and a reframing of the Greek ‘debt’, even writing the debt off. This happened to the Germans; in the 1950’s they were complaining that they would never have economic recovery while burdened with war reparation debts. These debts were wiped clean and the results have been plain to see over the last 50 years. So it was OK for Germany then but not poor little Greece now. And, ironically, it’s been the Germans pushing for the harsh ‘austerity’ measures in Greece.
But there might be a domino effect, after Greece it will be Spain, then Ireland (just found out that Sinn Fein are the latest anti-austerity party) then ………? Now this general writing off debt thing used to happen regularly in other civilizations, seems like it’s time has come for our civilization.
Now which party in dear old blighty is anti-austerity? Just the Greens, so maybe, just maybe, if things start to happen in Greece and elsewhere it could be a really interesting election here next May. Come on Millibean, there’s still time.
- enough austerity, let’s bring some real hope to people, write off all debts.
Keep on keeping on, love Duncan
