Today has been a strange day…I find most days are strange when I really stop to think and properly consider them…mostly they start off mundane and samey and move through the tedious and dull phases before ending with the mounting inevitability of the same happening again in the next 24 hour period.
Some days contain things in them to look forward to, catching up with people and going places I don’t go to very often, or perhaps just the chance to be a solitary, lazy and probably sleepy chap.
Thinking about things is always good though, not just for exercising the critical faculties – which the world seems intent on dumbing down – but also for stopping me becoming complacent about life and all its features. I do like life, contrary to all the repetitious stuff in it and the depress-a-thon that is the news.
Just the other day, Myself and Chris were comparing our own definitions (and their differences) of the words melancholy, sadness and depression. It was just a little exercise but having been put on the spot really made me think of the actual meaning of the words I use and how many seem to be so interchangeable in everyday speech for so many people. Which in reality probably makes a lot of people myself included extremely inaccurate about a lot of things I say.
So today I have been examinating something a little less deep and meaningful, I was working out what the optimum air conditioning temperature would be for a snowman to survive in a house in summer. It started off fairly logically as you would expect but then I started to look at moisture levels, fluffiness of the snow and so forth and it all got more and more complex.
Then it got really fascinating when I wondered how compacted the snow would be because that would have an impact on how loud he would have to turn the radio up when he was doing the housework. Beofre long my snowman actually had quite a busy day and that’s when the revelation came, that he actually is more integrated into society then I am. It’s all very crazy thinking about all this and just goes to show how fascinating it can be to think random thoughts…so now I am behind in my day and must dash….!
