Thanks to Greg for tagging me with this damned meme - it's like being given the flu but then discovering that now that you've got it you can spend a couple of days with your feet up watching old movies. Having kept myself in isolation however, I have not passed the meme on and so it dies with me, unless anyone fancies infecting themselves after reading it? This analogy is wearing me out so without further ado...
agoraphobia - is it agoraphobia if you've been housebound for twenty years through choice?
being alone - sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not
cars - I love driving but only when no-one else is
death - it's random - get used to it
existence is pointless but it's all we have
families - overrated
grumpiness - harder to resist the older one gets
hell is...fill in your own answer
isolation - I am alone, you are lonely, he is isolated
jumpin' jack flash - I shouldn't love this movie but I do
kindness - underrated
loneliness - see isolation above...
mice - I adore them in the garden, I hate them in my house - one of the illogic loops in my life
noises are louder and more sinister in the dark
optimistic nihilist is the only thing to be
possibilities - you gotta believe in them, otherwise what's the point getting out of bed?
quizzes - anyone else addicted to these daft wastes of time?
rain - I'm Scottish, I have rain in my soul.
snow - snow is the more exotic cousin of rain - better-dressed and trendier
ticks - I used to hate ticks more than anything on the planet but I forgive them for existing now - everyone's got to be something...
up - because the only alternative is down
visions of the future - I'd love to see how far we can take our understanding of the cosmos in the distant future
wasting time - isn't wasting time great? It annoys the normal people so.
x is when these lists always start to go wrong or you have to cheat so in that spirit - xanthometer - a tool for measuring the colour of sea or lake water
youth - where did it go?
zigzagging my way through life - confused but happy...
