Just got back from a rendezvous with ---- -----*in town.
We had drinks, dinner and coffee at various places around Kings Cross to the soundtrack of blaring sirens – the Sydney anthem.
Is Sydney burning (dying, rampaging or all of the above and more)?
Walking back to the Kings Cross train station I saw a pair of policeman talking to a drunk and disorderly Aboriginal.
A novel approach for Australian police!
Hung around for a while, waiting for them to bash him ("policia in my country very bad men!”) but they didn’t!
They’re no fun anymore!
Felt like telling them “would you just hurry up and bash him, I’ve got a train to catch, I’m going to miss my train!”
Was telling ---- that all this anti-Muslimism in Australia at the moment is totally unacceptable!
I mean that’s our (Maronites) job; they’re encroaching on our prerogatives
At the end of the day its midnight.
*Ironically, although it bears my name, this blog is not about me.
It’s about saving the world!
It’s about you – the little people, the unheard unwashed masses who don’t have a voice!
Renatoobeidsworld makes this money back guarantee pledge to you (it’s subjects) – you wont ever read “I’m feeling blue today”,” I’m feeling vulnerable today”, “I had an argument with so an so”, “went to the mall today with so and so, it was so kewl!” and the other unimportant, banal, petty, superficial, indulgent, self important, self obsessed, pop culture centric tripe found in so many other blogs (what do you think I am – an American?).
Thus, I generally refrain from mentioning myself, family and friends etc except when relevant to some overarching transpersonal issue, point etc.
When these people are referred to (out of sheer necessity) I generally won’t mention them by name or (where names are written in the original unpublished text) blank their names – pending their approval and payment.
