the sandwich’s the thing

I’ve been in a bad mood all day, and though I’m trying to keep the blog free of “I had such a shitty day today! My hair looked all weird and there was so much traffic on the morning commute” bullshit, my bad day started with a sandwich and that sandwich can be used to explain what’s wrong with everything, all the time, everywhere, and why good people have reasons to always be grumpy, so I’m going to indulge.

At the very apex of my bad mood it occurred to me that on a certain level all I’ve ever wanted is to be mean. To be mean, aloof, wear tight well-fitting jeans, and have the strength to remove myself from society and focus on creating whatever it is that I want to create. That’s really all I want out of life, and I pretty much fail at it every single day. (That and a more egalitarian society based less on free market capitalism gone wild and more on respect for each other, our planet and the other creatures that share it with us.)
