Yadda yadda power outage. The town was super-neat last night at midnight. Mars was insanely bright. And there was much rejoicing. And naturally everyone’s pointing a finger at everyone else.
Currently we’re about to get a severe thunderstorm. I imagine the power will go out again. and there will be much rejoicing. It just thundered enough to shake the house. Maybe I should go offline or something.
However, before I go offline, I desperately need to vent.
When the news requests that you turn off air conditioners because they draw a lot of power, and you complain that you can’t possibly function well without your precious air conditioner, I will lose all respect for you as a person who cares about the world. It’s hypocritical to proclaim how you want to save the world and then decide it doesn’t matter if it inconveniences you. I’m sorry, but it’s the same as when they have water shortages and ask you to not water your lawn – those of you who keep watering a lawn in this condition because your lawn is special and if no one else is doing it because they’ve been told not to then your watering won’t make a difference… well chances are there are a few hundred more of you, or even more, and in my opinion you lack respect for those who actually care for the people around them, and you lack respect for anyone outside of your little personal bubble. As such, I lack respect for you.
It’s like the last straw. I really have to get out of this house before I do or say something permanently damaging. Especially since it won’t make a difference anyway. I will say nothing and do nothing and avoid the topic entirely. I just had to vent this now here.
Canoe trip starts in one week. I keep trying to convince suraklin to go, but he keeps saying no fucking way. Wuss. 😉
