I scroll and I scroll and I scroll, I begin to feel like a Caesar, he had a bad touch of the scrolls, as I remember, Carry on Cleo, springs to mind. Back to the title – I have stopped going on Social Media – three weeks now – I finally reached a point where a picture of your dog, cat, child, children, child/children with husband/wife, your tea (posh people call it dinner) your legs and toes on a sunbed, Boris Johnson/Donald Trump with a funny caption above their head and of course a big fuck off poster that tells me to stay at home! Just didn’t do it for me anymore.
I feel better, the Princess feels much better (no more rants) I also stopped watching the news. I catch up with the daily briefing once a week. I found that listening to a Minister telling me nothing has changed, everyday, was becoming tedious – listening to so called journalists ask completely stupid questions – even more so. Incidentally a friend explained to me that they have even got Social Distancing wrong. It should be physical distancing… hmmm.
Is WordPress, Social Media, though? Some could argue the point. Personally I don’t think it is. It’s a writing platform where people share more than their pets, spouses and legs on a sunbed. Although I did share mine in a bath once.
Instagram? I mean really, how do you get 75,000 followers by posting pictures of your barely covered breasts and ass. Teasing the sex workers was a hoot for a while, but even they lacked imagination. Always a photo of a pretty girl with a beautiful child. She believed in Jesus and is looking for a wonderful man. The private message stated ‘Hi how are you today.’ I worked it out eventually. It’s some overweight ‘Johnny Foreigner’ sitting at his computer with his shabby Y fronts around his ankles. Now there’s an image the next time your chatting. Have a lovely weekend.
