Numb is the new deep

I feel a sense of Deja Vu....like this is a post I've made before. I used to care so much about what was going on in the universe, what was going on around me. I had a million opinions and loved opportunities to educate people and now I seriously dont care.

Okay, thats a bit extreme. I do care. But a lot of time, I don't want to know. I don't want to know specifics of the madness in Pakistan. I got tired of watching monks get beaten up. I have no idea why precisely Rumsfeld stepped down. I saw "Gates" complaining about China not sanctioning Iran and wondered what Bill Gates business was with Iran. I seriously much rather read fiction.

in other news, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers is pretty good.

Iran accomplished making 3000 tubes of chemicals that can cause a nuclear war...so countries are on the rise to sanction Iran (just got that info today, I've suddenly gotten addicted to MSNBC, CNBC, and FOX news for the past two weeks ~ opposite to how u feel abt news! Lol)

yep. I know this feeling. I'm right there with ya, like..
it doesn't really matter any more, I don't feel that pull to want to discuss the rights and wrongs of most things.
I just want to be quiet.
It's like, how else can one explain the stupidity of stuff that's going on, but do I ev en care any more to be concerned??
