Appetite for Distraction – Another Day.

He wakes up. He watches a show called Attack on Titan which he can only describe as insane. He wonders where Egypt’s former President is. He realises he cannot do anything about this even if he knew where the former President of Egypt is. In fact he wonders, is he still the President of Egypt even though he has been disappeared? He does not know the answer to this. He wonders how many years Bradley Manning will be locked away for and if he will be allowed to wear any clothes and if any of the people he revealed in the document release that he committed who seem to have been committing crime be investigated for any crimes as well. This is probably unlikely, he concludes, because no one seems interested in prosecuting a helicopter gunship crew for massacring journalists and children in a street because they may have, in the future, committed some kind of crime and the law is for the powerful and the weak have to do the best they can to ingratiate themselves or hide underneath things. Then he writes a thing and then he eats some lunch and then he doesn’t feel very well and is sure that he is about to vomit on the bus but he manages to not vomit on the bus. He tries to read to distract himself but this only makes him feel worse. Then he gets home and slides into his bed and lies in his bed feeling sick and not knowing why he is sick but feeling very sorry for himself either way. He falls asleep and his dreams will be very unpleasant.
