Ever feel like lashing out irrationally?

I can’t decide what’s pissing me off more.  The dumb assed questions the media is throwing at the Presidential candidate potentials (OK the RNC candidates as the DNC defacto designee has apparently gone into hiding till 2016), the President’s aimless international policy on anything, that The Walking Dead is not a daily serial, or that half my office took the week off leaving me to finish several big projects due this week.  I’m gonna go take a nap.  This crap better be sorted out when I wake up…

Shhhhh….. don’t tell the boss

but I was floating around looking for topics for a Thursday blog post at the office.  Nope, not, nothing. Hit the wall. Not an original thought in my head that would be of any interest to anyone. I did have to replace a pump on my well yesterday, but I find that uninteresting and doubt anyone else would find it interesting either.  So if I couldn’t find an original thought, I decided to do what we all do. I look for crap to steal off the internet.  Nothing like starting your muse with the simple Google search of the word Thursday. I figured what the hell, it’s Thursday might as well start there. Strangely enough, Googling Thursday gave me a large definition of the Greco-Roman calendar and the origins of Thursday. That shit was even more boring than what was going through my head.  When I click the tab for images for Thursday. You can only imagine what came up.   Yes, that’s exactly right. Thousands of pictures of kittens with the words “Hang in there, Fridays tomorrow.”.  That was of no damn help whatsoever. So then I got desperate. Google searched for Thursday quote. Lo and behold one caught my attention. Not so specifically about Thursday, but the word Thursday is in the title of a book the quote originated from. The below intrigued me:

“Shall I tell you the secret of the whole world? It is that we have only known the back of the world. We see everything from behind, and it looks brutal. That is not a tree, but the back of a tree. That is not a cloud, but the back of a cloud. Cannot you see that everything is stooping and hiding a face? If we could only get round in front–”
G.K. Chesterton, The Man Who Was Thursday

I never heard of the book, The Man Who was Thursday.  Now what could that be about that it has generated  such interesting quote?  Search on Goodreads  has given me the description of:

G.K. Chesterton’s 1908 masterpiece, The Man Who Was Thursday, is a metaphysical thriller, and a detective story filled with poetry and politics. Gabriel Syme is a poet and a police detective. Lucian Gregory is a poet and a bomb-throwing anarchist. Syme infiltrates a secret meeting of anarchists and becomes ‘Thursday’, one of the seven members of the Central Anarchist Council. He soon learns, however, that he is not the only one in disguise, and the nightmare begins…

I do believe my lazy research for today has not generated much wit for me to provide you with.  But I do now have a new book to download for my Kindle.   It seems…… interesting.
