Well hello there.
Yes, ’tis I.
It’s been over a month since I’ve written a post, but there is a pretty good reason for that.
Nothing has happened to me.
As most of you will know, I was made redundant at the end of February which, to be honest, wasn’t a big deal for me. I knew it was coming and I had made peace with it.
But my inspiration to write and poke fun at life stems from actually being out there and interacting with the dribbling masses of the world; all the bastard commuters, the idiots I worked with (and for), and the shuffling zombies that made every day a living hell.
So it transpires that, without these pointless creatures of vacant thought and stupidity, I have no muse; no poo from which I can pick the peanuts of inspiration and laughter.
“So find another job you lazy twat!” I hear you cry.
It’s not as simple as that.
“Why not!?” I hear you ask, rapidly losing interest.
Well, that’s something I can’t share with you yet for reasons I can’t go into, but rest assured there will be a post in the not too distant future where my dam of diplomacy will burst and wash away the brown and lumpy scum that has been building up over the years.
So this has left me having to take a different approach to how – and what – I write. A lot of my posts have been a re-telling of an event (or events) that I have either seen or experienced first hand; seeing the funny side of someone falling over, or losing their shit.
Occasionally I rant about stuff in life that generally annoys me, but my bread and butter is the sheer lunacy of daily life around me. Something I don’t have a lot of….for now.
In fact, my whole blog began as mere Facebook status updates detailing the weird and wonderful commuters I shared 3 hours a day with. It was only through peer pressure that I decided to convert it to a blog.
You may have noticed that I’ve recently started writing about TV show addictions, visits to the supermarket and innuendo-laced lunch dates with friends which, when you consider how far I’ve come, has been incredibly hard and often difficult to swallow.
Well, now my focus is shifting. I don’t have commuters to berate. I don’t have work colleagues to face palm myself to, so instead I have to rely on what I see, hear and do as an unemployed bum.
Over the next year I anticipate some new muses (or is it musi?), so bear with me. All in good time…
Until then, I’ll keep filling these pages with my utterly mindless wank.
Thanks for sticking with me….it’ll be worth it 😉
Aren’t you excited?
