This bitch spent a fantabulous week at Brother Rob Thurman’s farm in Kentucky!
Lawd, I haven’t been this relaxed since…um…wince…clearly my ass needed a rest.
Anyhoo, it was beautiful and spending the holiday with friends on the farm was just what I needed.
I’m just now catching up with the news. Just as I suspected, the world is still taking a shit in the middle of the room.
The morning news shows are telling me that today is Cyber Monday and folks are supposed to get their online shopping on because…well, because because damnit!
I’ll confess that I do not understand folks diving in to a shopping experience like folks dive into the day after Thanksgiving or the Monday after the holiday weekend or [insert day near a holiday that advertising agencies have successfully created a legend around to convince folks to spend, baby spend lest the heavens fall and dinosaurs rise to roam the land again]. It just doesn’t look like fun to me…particularly when it comes complete with the very real threat of physical violence.
But it is what it is…and many an American will come to work today sporting bruises like a hockey player in the middle of the NHL playoffs.
Now is the time of year when morning television offers up a rather freakish menu of warm fuzzy Humans Are Nice And Giving stories with a selection of Holy Shit, Humans Are Greedy Violent Shopping Zombies side dishes…and a luscious desert of You’re Fat or You’re Going to Get Fat Off Of One Huge Meal And Then The Zombie Shoppers Will Eat You.
I love how everyone gets sorta-decent this time of year…’tis much like the save-the-date post-turkey shopping shit.
It’s as if folks glance at their calendar and note that they have an appointment with consumerism on Friday and they need to stop being a wretched shit for a month.
Maybe this year Cyber Monday will get into the swing of things with a full on digital brawl over 50% discounted blue-ray blah blah blah.
