after reaching critical mass on distractions and not having enough money to buy a new smashing pumpkins cd we all need a bit of direction to get us back onto the treadmill that we’d inadvertently stepped off while we went looking for a pie. many times I’ve entered ‘spatula’ into google just to see what happens and then taken a life-changing decision based on a recipe for drizzle cake which normally involves going down the road and getting a paper but its small steps that change things – you don’t have to have a terrible year, although that helps.
I can occasionally seek out some hidden meaning in a the way I trip over a pile of school shoes at the bottom of the stairs or forget to let the guinea pigs out but in general the path that leads me is pretty short say, about 12 inches from my face to the screen. sometimes just looking out the window is life-changing enough. I have to move my head and everything. and sometimes there’s somebody walking past. with a dog. I saw 2 dogs once and they were barking. that kept me going for a couple of weeks.
so, how serendipitous that we should receive a plastic helicopter from china. within and without the packaging are the very words which have shown me the way the truth and light and my chosen path is now bedecked with flowers of eternal hope and lit by the effusive glow of a million sparks of imagination. its not much, but within the blue border and tabulated for clarity, the lord god almighty of slave labour spake thus onto me:
MOST NEW CATENA
TO BE HIGHLY PRAISED AND APPRECIALED BY CONSUMING PUBLIC.
TO ADOPT ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY.
TO ASSURE YEARS OF TROUBLE-FREE.
SIMULATING A TRUE STYLE
never a truer word has been spoke. I have no idea what catena might be, but its just right for me. and its most new, which is a bonus. I say this catena to myself everyday now as I flagelate myself with a copy of custom PC and praise the coal burners of the orient. I think I’ve reached my epiphany.
