Hello to all. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to click on my link and read my thoughts. I wish I could know who reads my blog so I could thank you individually. There are always way more clicks than I ever think there will be. But, I suppose if I knew who read my stuff, it would ruin some of the magic of writing blogs, yeah?
Firstly, Collin and I recently watched the "Love and Monsters" episode of Doctor Who. It has a lot of ELO in it, which really enhances the soundtrack in my opinion. Such a goofy episode. Since then, I've listened to a lot of ELO and if I might add, the ELO Pandora station is fantastic. I listen to it at work for at least an hour or more, but then after lunch, a nearby neighbor plays his music up really loudly. He listens to a lot of the same music my dad listened to in the car when I was younger, so I don't mind how loud it is.
I wanted to write about something much deeper, but it's always hard to express my thoughts. I usually sit here and type hundreds of entries and end up deleting them before I pick one topic. I'm sure you're wondering how I made it this far without deleting... haha. But here I am. I wanted to write about the thoughts we think vs. the thoughts we say. It's really hard to write about it because I have no idea what other people think. Well, that's not completely true, but it would be difficult to write about what others think without knowing 100% what others think.
If I can't write about it, I wanted to share why I wanted to write about it. I've had a lot of trouble lately determining whether people are genuine or not when they say things. People's words can lie, but not their eyes. And I have very good eye contact. I'm so amazed by how many fake conversations I find myself in where someone makes a suggestion and there is a positive response but we all know it won't happen. Deep down, our brain stomach [a term I made up in place of the word 'gut'] answers those questions for us. I suppose that is really seeing the glass half empty, but I have a different outlook on the glass half empty/full situation. I see the glass as half empty, not because I am a pessimist, but because I see an opportunity to make it full. I suppose someone could say I like to fill empty spaces. But the point is that I wonder if everyone realizes that these conversations are as fake as they are, and if so, why do we keep having them?
Usually when I find myself in a fake conversation, I just play it out so it won't get awkward. There are certain times though when pushing the limits of the conversation is more appealing. For that, I blame Collin's interest of Tim and Eric. For a great video, scroll to the bottom of this post.
I'll end this post with a good quote from Monty Python:
You'll see it's all a show,
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
