I Wanna Bomb Iran

I’m sitting at home on a Sunday. I feel tired and listless.

I’m getting over a cold.

I’ve spent most of the day in bed listening to lectures on making money online.

As far as that goes, I haven’t made much progress in many months. I’m still making about $10 a day from adsense.

I went into the chatroom and asked for a hug but got no takers.

Emma’s gone for the weekend.

I feel empty inside.

I remember a time when I was energized and full of purpose — March 2003.

We were invading Iraq and I followed along on the tele. I thought the shock and awe campaign was particularly neat.

It got me very excited.

I felt like a real man.

I’d like to feel like that again.

I wanna bomb Iran. Shock & awe, baby!

When I was young, I felt like I had no limits.

These days, unless I’m in my manic phase, I feel surrounded by limits. If I add something to my life, I have to take something else away.

I wanna feel free and powerful again.

I wanna bomb Iran.

Is that so wrong?
