a post not about the royal wedding

Does everybody’s toaster look like absolute crap? I mean, seriously, take a good look. Do you really think you should put food in there, take it back out, and then EAT it?

I tried to find a good picture online, but the only pictures of dirty toasters I could find were so disgusting I couldn’t bear to post any of them and risk having you all think it was actually mine.

They should make one that dismantles and can be run through the dishwasher.

Plus now our dishwasher AND garbage can are both full. I think it might be time to move.

Also, I apologize if the post title misled you into reading this, thinking I was maybe being coy or clever and actually WAS writing about the royal wedding. I’ve been thinking about it all day, trying to figure out what it means that I don’t care, or that anybody does.

Any ideas?

    Gee, I wonder where Coo Stark is now?

    Why don’t you feel the need to watch the royal wedding? Well, my theory is that “everyone” has a deep desire to see that their life is somehow in harmony with the universe. As a by-product of this view they want to look at the world and see that it is good. They look at the royal wedding because this is evidence that the world is good. Physically attractive people who seem to want to do good deeds meet, fall in love, and marry. Just like a fairy tale. And people like to have a fairy tale view of the world, because such a world would be easier to live in that one which is essentially evil and where people are out to harm and exploit each other. The particular thing about royalty is that these people pretend to be above politics, so “everyone” can admire them, regardless of party-political persuasion. (Of course, you and I, Sheriji know that the existence of such privileged people is the essential political issue of capitalist western society!)

    So why aren’t you watching?….Because:

    a. You don’t need to believe in fairy tales for self validation
    b. You are cynical enough to know that in the forthcoming days/weeks/months/years these two people will be seen to be just as flawed as everyone else in the world, and people will then start looking for a replacement fairy tale.

    How’s that theory?

    Jeez, I just watched because it was pretty, like a movie, and a great spectacle! Plus, quite frankly, I love seeing a big group of people all dressed up. With hats, no less!
