This blog now in Permanent Hiatus

I figured out that I can stop overthinking by property development. I have heaps of tradesman type projects to perform. It leaves no time to think of the useless crap I have filled this quaint little blog with over the years. I can see now why people keep themselves so busy. It's the best way to stop those worrying thoughts. Head down- arse up--- way to go.

And to all those troubled people who have been reading my unimportant posts over the years--- I hope you got something from them. I did. And as you allow yourself to slip into your own preoccupations-- think of me-- think of how I discovered the best way of escaping from the prison of self absorption. Simple. Bite off more than you can chew--- and chew like buggery!!! No time for self indulgence then. Your problems with yourself are therefore immediately solved.


Cheers all-- I'm cured

Resisting the urge

A while back I wrote of the ongoing problems I had with a friend who suffered Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. She has since written to me and said that she read my post and that it made her laugh and all is good with us.

in that post I wrote down 3 rules that I must follow. I have now made a forth rule.

Don't write back don't write again don't write to her--- don't do it!!! It's an illusion--- it will go to Hell again--- don't write back!!!!

There.

I think I have the message.

Well I know she will read this humble little post-- and she will say-- it was funny-- it made me laugh--- but I don't care--- don't write back-- keep your silence overthinking man--- resist temptation.

Ahh. I feel the temptation subsiding-- it worked!

Spreading the word

For all those who spend many hours telling us what they believe and why we should too I would ask one simple question:-

Why is it important to you to do this?

I just accidently read an article by an atheist about how he feels about death. I left him a comment. I did this because this is why he writes his articles for the newspaper in the first place. I said simply:-

Please just refresh me as to why it is important for you to get the no-god message out to us.

I find it hard enough to decide on what yummy cake I am going to have with my coffee. Deciding what to believe is even harder. I think I will go with:-

I believe that I believe

I believe there are some dishes to wash.

This I do believe.

Everyone is right! It's so satisfying to believe in something. I feel so much better now that I have established my clear belief. I hope it helps all my avid readers too.

Inception

Ok I went to see this much touted  sci-fi movie the other night. Firstly let me say that it really isn't as good as people make out. It's a great concept but the acting and the movie itself is not really that brilliant. It's still nothing new. The dream within a dream thing and the lost reality thing has been done before. But let me state the real reality of the movie- it's a mess! And it's not that great to look at neither. I was not overwhelmed by the special effects or the actors. The character development was just ordinary. The bottom line was that it was a total mess. People are confused by total messes. People have been confused into thinking this movie means something and is brilliant. They have been blinded by confusion. The concept was derived from many movies over many years and wrapped up new. Just as everything else we are told is earth shattering in cinema nowadays.

We were promised that it would be different-- with the vast amount of gunplay in it-- it is not different at all. It's a series of action sequences strung together by interactive storyline layers.

The question posed is--- Would the real reality please stand up?

Now as the overthinking man what do I reckon about the questions the movie posed concerning reality?

Reality------ who knows? Pain is a good way to assess one's reality. But the best gauge of the real reality is  as it always has been. Doing the dishes. Nothing could be so boring except the real reality. Forget the much touted totem thing---- dishes---- dirty dishes--- that's it!

Safely Back

I went off to build my beloved picket fence yesterday ( that's a whole other subject) and I was looking forward to a peaceful and constructive day. Suddenly out of the blue in comes a very angry sms. I'm in a spin. What have I done? Oh. I wrote on a female friend's wall on Facebook. I'm an idiot. She has Obssessive Compulsive Disorder and I thought she would get my little rant on the problems she has been having with her internet connection. A person who has this mental condition should be avoided like the plague at the best of times and even more so when she is having computer problems.

Anyway I thought about my situation ( after I had frantically tried to convince her that I didn't call her a fuckwad but the naughty telecom company person who was not helping her) and here are the new rules for my engagement with this person.

1. Don't write anything to her

2. Don't write anything to her

And 3. Don't write anything to her.

There I think I have got it now. My life is feeling calmer already.

New to overthinking

I been writing this shit for nearly 3 years and there are so many posts here. So..... where do you start if you are a newcomer? Start by pissing off. Do yourself a favour and don't get started. You will hate yourself in the morning.

What????

You are still here?!?!

Oh well..........................

I hope you enjoy your little visit. And I hope you like my funny little musings......................

No I don't!!! I don't give a shit!

Just piss off!

Overthinking just makes me angry. You don't want to be angry do you? You wouldn't like me when I'm angry. ( Bill Bixby- Incredible Hulk circa 70's) And I don't want to make you angry. So pleeease............

Oh well. Stay if you will.

Oh. By the way. I have a split personality too.

Snarking

That's what I do. I snark. I make comments that are barbed both in content and intent. Oh. I feel so awful now that I have discovered the word for what I do. I don't know why anyone would want to know me now. They all must be a very forgiving bunch of people I tell ya.

I know why they put up with me though. It's because I make up for my nasty little habit by being soooo friendly at other times. It's how I prepare them for the emergence of the snark . It waits patiently inside of me for the right opportunity. Just when they are thinking what a great guy I am-- out it comes. Gotta keep them on their toes.

amazing what you learn whilst looking at other things. I was reading this article on Ben Stiller's latest movie. It sounds exactly like me. and the rest of the ageing population of Western men for that matter. Life does disappoint and what have we left to do?

Snarking.

Ear Vacuum

I have been struggling with hearing out of my right ear for the last 5 weeks.

I finally got in to see an ear doctor and he stuck a mini-vacuum cleaner in my ear and vacuumed out this huge mass of garbage.

I knew people talked shit. And over my 58 years I have accumulated it-- in my friggin' ear!!!!

It's gone now. But I fear a continuation of the build-up. So I have stopped listening to people's shit.
