"Breakfast does not cause lunch." This has been on the front page of the site for a couple weeks now and I had no idea that it would cause such a commotion. Basically it's a way of saying that just because one event preceeds another, the first doesn't necessarily cause the second event. Given the recent string of things in my life that have been piling up, and seemingly have created a run of bad luck, I've been doing my remedial philosophising and trying to make sense of it all.
I'm out of here for five days, but it's interestng that I've got five days' worth of momentum on here. But the last few days it's been less and less. I think that perhaps true apathy means not caring if I do or don't. Does that make the words less meaningful, somehow? Have I become a slacker? Is it possible to be a part time slacker? Or a slacker on some things and not on others? Are you sick of these questions yet?
December 6: Sometimes things are just so easy, and sometimes, the simplest things are just hard to do... like writing on this thing, calling friends back on the phone, paying bills, writing Christmas letters, etc...
I heard that band Thrice on the radio tonight, and man, he sounds like Ian MacKaye so much. What a bummer.
Here it is almost Christmas again. I wonder if I'll actually say something about how dispicable I think they are to my lame neighbors if they come caroling or with gifts again this year. I want to try to think of the most gentle way to say what I want to say, without sarcasm, without being cruel. Is it possible?
I have posession obsession, but is it worth anything to say that I don't have it nearly as bad as some of my friends, or as my father, or my brother?

I wonder why I have developed such an aversion to the holidays. Every year it seems that the celebration and the shopping season and the lights go up earlier. Is it people being anxious and hopeful for this time of year, or are they victims of the commercialism that encourages dollars to be spent, to partake in capitalism?
