I keep thinking people will wonder why I named this blog hamsterdreams.  Maybe I’m the only one who wonders about this. 

 Well, I think it is because I have a lot of anger that needs to be controlled, such as:

  • Being treated unfairly many times in my life (and don’t bother telling me to “suck it up” I did and I do, and it still pisses me off).
  • About the damage we are doing to the earth and to ourselves with our chemical polluting of water, air and land.
  • About the giant corporations that are taking over the running of governments and are accountable to no one, making me wonder why the hell I still vote.
  • About the fact that many things that I was told were immoral and illegal when I was young, such as gambling and selling prescription drugs on TV have become commonplace and are now legal.
  • About hypocrisy, as in killing people (except in war it is “honorable”), serial marriage (we even have a name for it now, and no, I’m not a purist, I have been married & divorced), and pretending that we are a highly moral nation, when we have incredible amounts of pornography saturating the internet.

I could go on, but venting is only good if done within limits.  I think of hamsters as the most innocuous and “live in the moment” beings.  They are cute, they are fuzzy, and never harm anyone, not-with-standing a few comments I saw on the internet about someone being bitten by their hamster.

 In the interests of full disclosure, I don’t have a pet hamster; I have a cat.  She would probably love to chase a hamster around the house and then eat it.  I feel kind of bad knowing that I am harboring a homicidal critter, but I won’t let any hamsters anywhere near her, so they are safe from my killer cat.

 Well, that is all I have to say for now; I had to take a break from the slow moving death of the earth that is going on in the Gulf.

Let me leave you with the words of the great philosopher, Douglas Adams: “Ah, this is obviously some strange usage of the word ‘safe’ that I wasn’t previously aware of.”
