under a cloud

Update: I am broken.

And sick of it.

Sick of a lot of stuff in my life and tired of whining about it - although I only ever seem to do that internally. I'm sick of listening to myself.

It's a pretty poor state of affairs when you live alone and you can't stand being around yourself. It's so tiresome.

I'm still here. And will be back to this sometime, I'm sure. As soon as I overcome my lacerating misery and self-loathing.

Could be a while.

Loving the esoteric brouhaha about the latest xkcd comic:

The alleged wikipedia article is a redirect and the discussion over whether to keep or delete is an hilarious bitch fight over memes, language, jokes, validity, humour, notability, solipsism, etc. Plus the inevitable vote to redirect to a previous internet meme.

I love it when word nerds, joke stackers and self-important wikieditors get into a stoush. It's like a slap fight between 4chan and a university English department.

It's yet to reach a Godwin state but I hold out hope...

Saw a guy on the bus with the same hairstyle (if not quite the same sartorial flair) as Howard Wolowitz. Did I miss something? When did that become fashionable?

It'd be interesting if the popularity of The Big Bang Theory leads to more sub-cultural copying of the characters. Will lactose intolerance become cool? Selective mutism the new fad? Obssesive compulsive behaviours a must-have attribute?

I like the idea and support the general nerdifying of the population. If I can't be normal I'll just push everyone else to be more weird.
