My journey to geekiness has peeked! I brought a Dalek alarm clock into work, as it had no where to live at home, “There is no way that is going to be out alarm clock in our room” is actually what happened . That is it! I have no more inclinations to discuss Sci-Fi stuff and spent lunch discussing politics and refused to discuss the BBC's Sci-Fi series, ‘Torchwood’. (It is very good though.)
I have been reading books again, interacting with normal everyday folk , wearing normal clothing, shouting at the television news and looking at paying my council tax properly (Edinburgh City Council are not the best run when it comes to giving you the right bill).
On a more serious note, Michael Jackson’s funeral drew much more coverage, front pages, news inches and attention on the same day that a memorial to the dead of the 7th July bombings was unveiled (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8137265.stm). Money counts more than relevant news. Journalists and editors are scum but yet we allow them to dictate how much of the non-thinking British public think. By that I mean Sun readers, Express readers, Mail Readers . . you get the gist. Report the news guys and not populist and easy to fill column inches such as, ‘Micheal's family were very upset’ and ‘Bubbles has not yet been told’. The guy was a freak who needed help and stopped. Innocent people died in Tavistock and that is not more news worthy?
‘Nuff said there.
