This week, we celebrate Deepavali, the festival of lights or as my friend Sunder puts it, 'the Indian Christmas'.
The light element also represents, to me, something-something enlightenment something-something. This week, it is about loyalty and responsibility. And it has nothing to do with Maxis, which I am happy to report has contacted me and SEEMS willing to find an amicable solution to our little stand-off.
I will take on some responsibility issues concerning loyalty this week, and I do hope all parties involved will walk away from it a bit wiser.
A lot of people do stupid things, while it is the tactic of evil people to goad and prod people into making stupid mistakes. Stupidity is a tool, a weapon. And at the core of stupidity is the ego.
I have long been in this world - too long - that I sometimes tire of the little schemes and machinations that endlessly repeat itself. When I was younger, I found it beautiful because it is a repeating fractal, and I am a pattern recogniser.
Nowadays, I see things - I see everything, really - and I am just bored. It's the same people, doing the same things, though with different names and wearing a million different faces.
Oh well. I have a neckache to tend to. I think I'll get nsome sleep later. In the meantime, surprise me, you filthy bastards. Surprise me. I dare you. I double dare you.
