Drama, drama, drama.

Why one ever tries to engage socially with others remains a question that has no answer. Generally speaking, it never ends well, and one finds himself in a “situation” at the moment which has – in fact – confirmed his worst suspicions and general presumptions about the humans. Fickle, feckless, and basically fearful are they. Not worth the effort.

Best that I retreat to my wastelands.

Accordingly, like some slime dwelling bivalve I am going to snap my protective covering shut and avoid interaction entirely. There is no point, no future, no nothing. All is worthless, and the world spins to inevitable doom.

I have had it. Done.

This dark cloud I’m under will inevitably pass, of course. I’m too personally weak to ever fully engage in hermitage. Saying all that, I want nothing to do with anyone for a bit. Just leave a message, I probably won’t be answering the phone.

Avoid me.

  1. Now sirrah, nihilistic fugues never solve anything. Now ask yourself what would Superman, Doctor Who or Sauron do?

    What self-respecting yellow robed hierophant would suffer the opprobrium of retreat into the shell of a small bi-valve without the saving grace coolness of a Time Lord’s mastery of trans-dimensional engineering. What learned Pentacle Wizard would stoop to looking so positively undignified, whimpering, whilst curled up on the floor in a fetal position.

    Remember quitters never win and winners never quit, no matter where you go, there you are and all that saccharine drivel found on those silly inspirational wall pictures so beloved of the fairer sex.

    Recall the IQ communication gap is not without its travails. The poor normies simply don’t get it so damn their impudence, set the evil black raven on them and be done with it.
