t’is the season

I like fall air. I like the way I feel sick from eating too much popcorn at a movie. I like having to go to the bathroom, because suddenly whatever I’m doing has an added air of excitement to it. I like the way leaves blow in circles, little whirlwinds. I like staying up late, even though I know I’ll curse myself for it the next day. I like to lie in bed. I like being inside when it’s snowing out, and just watching it. I like the holidays. I like that I like the holdiays, because it’s around Christmas that the suicide rate is highest. I like being the smartest person in the room. I like being the dumbest one, too. I like how good it feels when I close my eyes and surrender to sleep. I’m beginning to like the dark. I like the way music plays in my head.

Knowing me, tomorrow is going to be about things I hate.

fast food nation

There are 30,000 McDonald’s in the world, according the their corporate website. That’s scary. The millions upon millions of people who are all giving themselves cardiovascular problems, this is where they’re coming from. 30,000! That’s about 1 for every 5,000 people in the US. So if you’re in a town in the US of over 5,000 odds have it McDonald’s has a presence there. Talk about opportunity for corporate takeover. They’ve infiltrated nearly every town in America. It hurts my brain, thinking about how this happened.
