I'm finally feeling enough like myself to recruit for the Rebel Alliance over at Worldwide Hippies again. Buzz Kill is still hovering around with a dang paintbrush, but at least I haven't seen him with my very own eyes. I remain somewhat embarrassed that I threw my ice cream at him the other day, but Velvet says that anyone could have seen that coming. When I asked if he was at all surprised by the event, Velvet said he was surprised we still had any ice cream. He thought he'd eaten it all.
The ice cream incident happened before I realized that Buzz Kill was like a big-assed bulldozer trying to get his way by pushing me around - or running me over as the case may be. I wish I could remember what I had to say about his foolishness because I felt seriously strong when he locked himself in the bathroom that day. It will take me a little more time to sort out this bullshit, but I can already see how once again we can apply the Macro to the Micro. Truly, we cannot expect to have an impact on the assholes that dominate our society until we we stand down the assholes in our personal life. As it happened, I found myself drawing a similar conclusion about this time last year - right after the State of the Union address - when I was thinking about Ass-Wholes Great and Small.
For the moment, I'm just glad that the domestic situation is not draining every ounce of my energy. I really like writing for Worldwide Hippies, and it was a drag to be stuck in the Buzz Kill Zone like it was the La Brea Tar Pits. Plutocrats and Politicians are kind of like big, bullying bulldozers too - and it suits their purposes for us to accept our lot in life and do as we're told. I managed to keep Buzz Kill out of things over at Worldwide Hippies though. I turned to Dr. Seuss.
