Thoughts on thinking and other things, (but not Steven Spielberg)
Today has been rather tough you see something terrible happened that involved the use of thought; it was what is known as thinking. I can see the look of shock in your faces as I say this. Well I can’t see it but I know it is there because the alternative would be ambivalence and that does not bear thinking about, particularly after a day spent thinking about other stuff. Actually I probably don’t mean ambivalence thinking about it I probably mean indifference or even worse ordinariness. Thoughts of creating ordinariness after an entire day of thinking is the sort of thing that the Greek Gods would worry about and the reason the Roman Empire fell in such a spectacular fashion all those years ago, and mark my words no such think is going to happen in my diary.
So what was it I was thinking about I hear you say, again I cant hear you say but I know that deep down you just need to know and it is going to be a bit of a shock to almost all of you. I say almost because there is always some smart character out there lurking in a doorway who will say I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO SAY THAT, but the truth is I can’t remember.
Still there is one great advantage in not remembering what I spent the day thinking about; it means I do not need to tell you what it was now because I can’t. And that is rather useful because it is now getting rather late and I will be heading off to bed very soon.
I have been told by the Ghost Writer the brain is very clever and deletes all none important information and so all that remains are the critical items of information which make us tick and function. The result of this is apparently a diary that is lean mean and concise with no spurious data that is not needed in order for it to be a functional and interesting which is damn lucky, I don’t think that Steven Spielberg would appreciate something that rambles on for ever.
It also appears the Ghost Writer has also been using his brain today in looking at a whole new national database and then sorting PC’s and printers, He also says he reckons that Steven Spielberg might like to make a film about a mad IT expert who has lost the plot . . . . . . .mum says the Ghost Writer is an IDIOT. . . . . . . I think I agree that sounds rubbish.
