Energy reduction, the logic for embracing insanity

Hello to you all. I hope you're well? I'm away out for a walk in a moment, my posh wellies need a scamp but wanted to share a wee silly thing.
My darling daughter gave me these words of wisdom of how to live my life today. I've been a little down. the wind keeps eating my flowers and life doesn't seem much fun without a garden to function in. So she's really cheered me up. The copyright of this is Chuck Lorre Productions, creators of the show 'The Big Bang Theory' of which we all love.
Okay, I'm just gonna say it out loud. There are times when going crazy looks attractive. And I'm not talking about becoming charmingly eccentric. I've already got that covered nine ways to Sunday. No, I'm talking about purposely emigrating to the land of lunacy. That special psychological zip code where The Ancient Laws of Behave Yourself no longer apply. My "reasoning" is simple. It takes a great deal of effort to sustain a conservative, trustworthy persona. Surrendering that effort would involve, from a Freudian perspective, a conscious dismantling of the super ego - that part of the psyche entrusted with enforcing parental and socially approved actions. And therein lies the allure of going full frontal wack-a-doodle. The constant energy required to pass as normal would suddenly become available for doing and saying whatever pleases me in the moment. Imagine it. The id and libido completely unbound by any and all moral or cultural restrictions. Hmm... Probably won't need the shrink anymore... might need a lawyer.

I'll leave you with her newly found quote of how to cheer up her upside-down faced mother. To be fair she told me I'm already mostly there and to be honest I'm liking this philosophy - I may adopt it. [Although I'm writing this in the middle of a water pistol/escalating water cup fight between a 40 something manchild and a 15 year old girl - I think I'm already living midst whack-a-doodle-land].

Chuck Lorre you are a legend of logic all copyright directly his and from the website here.

After my walk, I may engage the services of a decent lawyer.


  1. LOL - and plenty of money to pay the lawyer for those services :)

    But, being guilty of an "upside down face" myself, now and then, I agree. Life has become so serious - we need to think, behave and reason as a child again - no matter how fleetingly - in order to appreciate who we are, and what we have as adults.

    1. So right dani! Upside down faces aren't fun. I've taken to standing on me heid

  2. As a former lawyer, I offer my services gratis, if needed! Take care, but take it!

  3. Hi Fay!

    My name is Hannah and I'm contacting you from Pedigree regarding the Joint Care+ Trial programme we're currently running. I'm not sure if you saw the e-mail I sent to you last week, but I just thought I'd catch up with you and see if you were interested in getting your dogs involved in our free 6 week trial! It's completely free and there's no hidden catches, we're just keen to see what dogs such as yours think of the product.

    Joint Care+ can be very beneficial for aging dogs and we'd love you and your dog to take part in the trial as so many other have done over the past couple of months.

    If you could let me know if you're interested (hannah [at] uk [dot] pedigree [dot] com) then I can send you across some more details. In the meantime, take a look at the Pedigree Joint Care+ Play Again video to see what you can expect at the awesome events we’re holding for dogs, and the Pedigree Facebook page for all the updates on current triallists.

    If you have any questions and you'd like to be involved then please feel free to get in touch. Hope to hear from you shortly!

    Kind Regards,


  4. Thanks hannah, I'll consult peedie who's reading isn't up to much but I'll cover the ageing case he gets offended!

  5. You have shared a great information about Industrial Electrical Contractors and Energy Reduction Services.Which are very

    informative for us. Thanks
