The bloody time change! It gets to me every time. It makes me sluggish and groggy, and the darker days just don’t help matters. But darker days are here and it’s not just because it’s winter.
More of that “us and them” mentality has reared it’s bizarre ugly head. I heard a customer discuss how “evil” Phillip Pullman is. (Author of The Golden Compass, soon to be a major motion picture.) How he alleges to bash C.S. Lewis and alleges to promote atheism! Oh My Gawd! It’s clearly gaining steam. I got an email about this very thing. That means a billion other people have gotten the email too since I’m usually the last to get crazy spammings. Another conspiracy looms! Get your pen and paper (cut and paste if you know how) and jot this down.
It’s a novel.
Repeat after me: It’s only fiction.
So is Harry Potter, 1984 and Old Yeller!
It’s only fiction, not a conspiracy.
And here’s the other thing we need to remember: there is no “THEM” there is only us.
Okay, it’s the time change, it’s got me cranky. But, really people. We already have organized religion, do you think anyone wants to start organized atheism?
I need a nap.
Would somebody turn on a light.
