I’ve been kind of down the last week after a slew of bad luck.  This really affects my writing.  I read all the same stories and have all the same thoughts.  But when I’m down I usually just wind up being a grumpy gills, whereas usually I at least find some humor in what’s going wrong with the world.  Just…nothing seems funny when I’m brooding, even hypocrisy.

And what’s more, nothing seems interesting.  If I see a flaw in a person’s argument when I’m down, I generally just think “Yeah, but everybody should see that and, if they don’t…meh”.  It’s not the right way to look at things, but some days are just like that.

So I’m going to call it a day and go for a walk.  I might go bowling with the University of Kansas atheist group tonight to try and cheer myself up.  I’ll try to be a little more upbeat tomorrow.  You stay classy, atheists.
