Look, Universe, babe, I love you but come on! You can't keeppoking and laughing at me.
Okay so I spent a little time with a ciggie, wine, jazz and the laptop to write what I just did...and its ironic that the following occurred in quick succession and referred both to the central yet understated point I was making -- the fear of being alone:
1. Simmi replied to a comment saying " ZAPHOD, it makes perfect sense.
it boils down to the big existential issue of lonelyness and damnation or fear...we are all in the dark about that, but better"
2. I am in bed, bored and watching Sex In The City (do not judge lest ye be judged!), I just unpaused the episode to see Miranda yell 'Oh my god! I'm going to die alone'
I guess this fear isn't just mine but is all over the place?! Yeesh
So, YOU, that big thing up there, all black with those stupid twinkly lights called stars, STOP MOCKING ME
(slide under the covers in a huff)
go away, there's no one home
