I spent this Sunday doing maybe two productive things (one being shopping, one being writing) but the majority of the hours were spent avoiding the news and lying around on my couch like a damn wastrel.
I've been upset about the Connecticut shootings but especially so last night when, on my way to my drugstore to pick up a few things, I heard the radio broadcast reporting the new details that the police had uncovered. I don't know why, really, but I was completely overwhelmed and began to hysterically cry. I pulled over into a parking lot and called my sister. It was a strange thing for me to feel that strongly so suddenly. Like I said, I've been trying to avoid being immersed in the non stop news cycle about it so I won't talk about it here too much.
I just saw a commercial for the upcoming season of American Idol and I'm wondering when that shit is going to finally stop airing. It was never, ever relevant but especially so in the last five or so years when all the "winners" seem to be not even remotely "idols", not that we should idolize entertainers anyway. Again, this irritation, sudden and strong, is a little strange for me to experience. Perhaps I'm just overly emotional but I really would love to throw a high heel at my tv.
My brain is exhausted and addled. It is probably best if I end today's entry abruptly. I have nothing really to say yet again today.
