I Don't Wanna Know

I've been a bit out of it these last few days. My mood has not been good, and my psyche is a bit... fragile. There's a lot of depressing/potentially depressing stuff going on in the world that I really don't want to know about. To read up on them would likely send my sensitive frame of mind into a deep depression.

  • I don't want to know that the stock markets took a deep plunge the other day and many fear a recession is on the way. When you work in my field, any hint of "recession" means "unemployment."
  • I don't want to know that the Lincoln Park Zoo, as well as the Sears Tower, are potential terrorist targets.
  • I don't want to know that the threat of a dirty bomb is more dire than we all would like to think.
  • I don't want to know that there are abandoned nuclear weapon sites in former Soviet countries that are non-secure and just waiting for some crazies to come steal some bombs.
  • I don't want to know that I'm so out of shape that I practically break into a sweat just by walking to the train stop each day.
I don't want to know any of these things, since I don't need any more stress in my life. Besides, I've got to finish this report for a client and can't be bothered.

Wait...the LPZ is a potential terrorist target? Is Baby-Al-Qaeda behind this?

I hope you have a nice, calming weekend...

Think happy thoughts! Almost the weekend!

I'll have to do a happy post now, just to balance out the karma of the blogs...

Why would someone bomb a zoo? Sick sick people.
