'cause sometimes...

it's best to just sit down, shut up, and listen to what others have to say. because occasionally one's attitutde toward the rest of humankind needs to be properly realigned, lest one's attitude unleashes so much as a drop of the universe's near-absolute-zero indifference to one's problems in response. (translation: my attitude toward the rest of humankind brought me a little too close to getting my fine feathered ass tarred in addition by a driver in an advanced stage of road rage -- and i was on foot. i may have had the right of way, but i still had an obligation to check before crossing the road, especially at six in the afternoon. bird-brain that i am, i just had to go into wtf mode. fortunately, all i got was chewed out...)

this technique also lends itself very well to blogging, i've learned. wouldn't have fathomed that a few days ago. i do believe i'll keep it handy. there are times when i link to what i think is a great article, post, item, or thingumajigger, but struggle with what to add to it before posting. well, hell. why bother adding anything at all? just give a link and an excerpt, and shaddap. that will at least keep the universe at bay, and that's a good thing.

'cause sometimes, senoras and horsemen, i ain't got nothin'. that reminds me of a line paul newman spoke in one of the best movies i've ever seen: "sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand."

love that line. now here's to hoping i can take acvantage of nothin' without getting shot!

til further on...
