Random Musings of a Human Becoming

Oh geez . . .

I don't know if it's a natural hormone cycle, or because I'm always a little bit hungry at the moment, or because the Olympics are an emotionally charged time in some ways, but I'm back in that state in which tears spring into my eyes and I want to bawl every time there's an advert on the TV with kids in it.

And of course, the ****ing Olympics with their ****ing sponsors aiming for the ****ing ambitious parent market are bombarding us with child-filled adverts!

McDonalds is in there, Little Athletics is in there, Coles and Woolworths have adverts all about sponsoring childrens' sports programmes, Telstra's watch-the-Olympics-on-your-phone campaign has kiddies galore, there's ten different family car adverts . . . it's freakin' endless.

And people wonder why I'm in such a hurry to have kids. Having the freedom to sit and watch TV uninterrupted all evening is pretty pointless when you bawl for babies in every ad break!
