Or ah doan care if you want to pronounce it in Bajan.
What am I talking about? Well more or less I'm just talking about the news these days. Usually I'm somewhat of a newsholic so I like to be up-to-date with all the goings on in the world. Just collecting info I guess. Its just something I've become accustomed to. I'll scour the internet, read the newspaper and watch the news on TV. People come up to me and say oh did you hear such and such happened and I've usually already heard. I got my hand on the pulse. I may pretend I haven't heard or just be like yea I heard but sometimes especially if its an annoying person I always have that option to hit them with "but wait whapart you get that stale news from, you real late den! lol"
But now, for the past couple of weeks I've just been in a news funk. Haven't been checking the news sites, haven't been reading anything besides sports in the newspaper, haven't been watching the morning or nightly news. I blame it on the stupid Terry Schiavo thing. Couldn't turn on the TV at one point without hearing some reference to that case. It was just blanket coverage of what I perceived to be not that major a news item that just started my slippage into a news coma. Ironic isn't it, a woman in a coma put me in a news coma. I'm not trying to diss her news as being insignificant but the overkill was just totally ridiculous in my opinion.
Then there was the Pope thing, again my synopis; Pope sick, Pope dies, Pope buried, Cardinals meet to choose new Pope, ps: he wont be black. Ok so he was a great man and deserves his tributes and accolades but I'll admit that the choice of a new Pope is a significant event but again I am just all Pope-d out. Michael Jackson case, same thing. Did he sleep with them, fondle them whatever I really don't care. Liberals money scandal here in Canada; big deal, its not like we didn't know that politicians are shady. Come on now! Boring! Boring! Boring! I just cant deal with news stories these days.
Maybe I'm of the belief that there are probably bigger more important new stories out there that need to be told and fixated on. Forget Terry Schiavo whats happening in Iraq? How's the rebuilding going for those dudes in Indonesia and Sri Lanka who had the Tsunami? How is the US economy actually doing? Forget Michael Jackson, how important is that ish.
Anyway that's about all I have to say for now. I'm hoping that by discussing it, I've taken the first step towards slipping out of my news coma. I need to do it soon cause knowing my wife she wouldn't hesitate to pull the plug on me, lol
