I haven’t been feeling well for a few days, a virus somehow picked up from coins or the touching of things not properly handled, dismantled or disinfected by servants first.

This has, of course led to television-induced dementia where I am unable to process any rational thought and instead find myself thinking inside the box, outside the realm of outlier understanding what with the onslaught of bizarre PVR’d films, infomercials and terrible daytime TV. Am currently watching FOUL PLAY, in which Goldie Hawn as a shy librarian, stumbles upon a plan to assassinate the Pope, but can’t make anyone believe her until she meets a bumbling, smarmy-but-charming police detective in the form of Chevy Chase. The opening credits/theme song, I believe, is called “Ready To Take A Chance Again”. It also “stars” Dudley Moore.

This is what happens when insomnia leads to an unconvincing blur between daytime telly and reality, between dreams and dramas. I found myself shopping for groceries in the middle of the night like a zombie craving canned brains, the ensuing hours command that my eyelids are propped open by pinned pupils in the middle of the day as i absorb and dismiss multiple plotlines erratically, too tired to complain, too irritated to sleep.

All of which would be considerably more comfortable if I didn’t have the cold and could comment with a marginal amount of lucid authority, of agency in my own distasteful waste of hours, but then, I suppose I would be doing other things, and rather than chase my own tail with that what-if scenario, I suppose it’s more to my advantage to shut up and absorb.
