Cold

Posted in Άνεμοι κ Ύδατα στις 10:03 πμ από perissos

Just left the office. Stayed late because I have an appointment with a friend which made it impractical for me to go home first.
Everyone is wrapped up for good in coats and scarves. Zhe Greqs are not used to the cold. They are also not used to snowfall. Or rain. Or high heat. If you take out these weather conditions, you will see that this country has a whole 37 days per year where everything goes like clock-work… as a figure of speech.

I must admit I am confused these past days. On one hand, 4 straight days w/o work were more than enough to make me lose track of the days. I always complain that the daily work-work-work routine makes life seem like water streaming through my palms. Well, holidays are like alcohol: streaming AND evaporating.

On the other hand I still read some articles on the net about the latest events. Analysis over analysis. What does our want? Better future? A new society? More money? Do they just show contempt? Is the Left still relevant? Are we becoming a jungle society with more and more violent incidents? Is there any hope? Have we started «officially» oppressing migrant workers with Hoffa-like hits?
Well, if u ask me I can surely say that hope there is not. If the Yankees say «yes we can», all we can say is «no we can’t».

Then we have the new Gaza massacre. I really cannot understand the Israelis. They have the Palestines herded like cattle in a barren land. What do they expect? That the Palestines will just wait to die of hunger? They would make missiles from manure if they could. If the Gaza strip is a massive concentration camp (and the Jews know a thing or 2 in that area) why don’t they just exterminate all the Palestines and get over with it? If it is a normal country (or a country-to-be) why don’t the Israelis lift the f@cken blocade and leave the Palestines stand on their feet?
But then you have the Palestines waging a continuous civil war, killing each other… for what? Barren land? I have a friend from NE Europe who is a true racist towards Arabs, thinking they are no better than the goats they breed. Well, the Palestines are certainly a proof for that.

Finally, in the middle of all this, I am leaving for Austria on Fri. I must admit, if I had time I would seeeeriously reconsider this trip, though I am a sucker these euro-road-movie kind of holidays. You see, when I will fly on Fri, I will leave behind a bank account with zero (0) credit for the 1st time after the age of 4. Ok, yes, I have already put aside a sum for the next mortgage payments, I am not completely broke. Nevertheless it has a big psychlogical effect when you see the 0 at your bottom line.
