I do not know why, but yesterday I watched 2 things that I should never have watched. The first was a video on YouTube of the now infamous Neda dying on the street in Iran. I've since seen the video on the news, but the gory details are blocked out. The YouTube video doesn't block anything. It replays in my mind, but a switch in my brain flips off at a certain point. There are things I want to know, but my brain cannot go there. I so regret watching it. I think my brain will have to process the information at some point and if I cannot or will not do it willingly during my waking hours perhaps my brain will do it automatically while I sleep. Either way I do not like the prospect. What made me watch that?
The second thing I watched that I should not have was "Jon and Kate plus Eight". Obviously their life has turned into a train wreck. Why did I want to see it? Right up to the end I hoped they would announce the end of the show and say they were going to do whatever it took to keep their family together. Not the case. The very end stated, in writing, that legal proceedings were begun yesterday to dissolve the marriage.
Strangely, (MORE strangely?) I did not pay much attention to the literal train wreck that happened in my corner of the world yesterday.
