You know that maelstrom of thought that goes through your head when you can’t sleep? Here’s a smattering of my wee small hours lunacy earlier today:
“Oh, no, brain is pinging thoughts around in my head like a pinball machine again…
Why is it called a chain of thought anyway?
Hmm, chains…who said ’man is born free and everywhere he is in chains’? French chap…Descartes…no….Rousseau…I think…?
Was there a Mrs Rousseau? And if so, did she have a trousseau?
What then was Descartes famous for….oh yes, ‘I think therefore I am’….
Remember that book of graffiti you had as a kid? With the joke version ‘I’m pink, therefore I’m Spam’?
Well that joke won’t work nowadays will it, because Spam doesn’t mean processed luncheon meat to most people any more….
If I was writing this down I could put LOL at the end of that sentence…
I don’t like the look of LOL.. do I like ‘The Look of Love’? Not sure. Who recorded it anyway?? Oh yes, Dusty Whatshername…who calls a kid Dusty? Was that her real name?
Back to LOL. it does come in handy…I use it, but I don’t like looking at it…probably because it is in shouty capitals…
But what is the present participle? When I use LOL, I can’t be ‘lolling’, can I? Can I? Am I?”
Oh sleep, where art though??
Here’s a card.
