The mind is a funny little thing. OK, let me be more specific. Mine is. It seems to be rushing all over the place. One minute it is thinking of something and then five minutes later it is somewhere else altogether. Thought A leads to thought B to C to D to E ...... ad infinitum. Thought A and thought N might be in totally different realms but they are all connected if you see the whole picture ..... just as the universe is all connected even if they are parallel universes connected by portals or black holes or whatever ..... I must have travelled through a portal this last week. Too much time on my hand you might say. But that is perfectly alright, 'cause that is not untrue ..... if you'd call a 5 day break too much time away from work. So it started with my composting and gardening and cribbing about the crazily hot weather. The thought led me to investigate the cause of such global weather changes as are being reported the world over. Who better than Google Uncool to give me the lowdown? Uncool Google is great friends with Youtube. So he recommended me to ask Youtube aunty. Youtube aunty gave me a whole list of videos which she recommended me to watch. Never mind whether it concerned what I was looking for or not. Anyway, I have never been given to obeying blindly, no, not even Youtube aunty. So I browsed stuff for weather changes, chanced upon changes in the magnetic poles of the earth, drastic weather changes, how it was being hidden from us by the Illuminati, how the British Royal Family and the Illuminati were shape shifting aliens to the history of the British history back to Queen Victoria, to how Queen Elizabeth is not the legitimate heiress to the throne, how her uncle was a traitor, how there was a skeleton in the royal cupboard - a prince who died at the age of 13 and was said to suffer from autism and epilepsy. (It broke my heart to know that his name is not mentioned in their family trees because it is something they would not like to acknowledge publicly. So much for family relationships). Anyway, the British family's skeletons led back to the Nikolais and their tragedy to the fact that some bones found in Africa were those of Princess Maria. So eventually digging in the garden and handling decomposed matter viz. compost has a logical connection to digging up Russian skeletons from Africa!!! Was talking to my personal Bertie Wooster today (I am his Aunt Dahlia ..... or Agatha, depending on the mood). "What have you been upto"? he asked. I told him the story. This is like the story about the red fire engines. Here is how it goes: An anti-joke (coincidence that 'aunty's' line of thinking is not far different from this) or spiral thinking? Time to get back to real life and start preparing for the 'Illuminati' whom I have to teach starting day after. Sigh!
