Ways to feel better

One of the many tried and true methods of making oneself feel better is to write annoying letters to politicians who happen to annoy one.

Senator Kate Lundy
Unit A
Law Society Building
11 London Circuit
Canberra ACT 2601

Dear Senator Kate Lundy (or the nameless minion reading this letter),

Your Senatorialism,

Please find enclosed the “Community News” newsletter, which you recently had mailed to me.

I am returning this to you as I have no need for it. I hear enough from you and your loopy lefty fruitcake colleagues in the media, without needing to be subjected to it in my post office box as well.

Please feel free to do with this newsletter as you see fit. Contrary to appearances, I would be most pleased if you decide to reuse this newsletter by sending it to one of your other constituents, as this would, in theory at least, mean that some of the taxpayer funds which go in to your various allowances would not need to be spent on printing an extra copy of the newsletter.

Wishing you the most interesting of times,

Samuel Gordon-Stewart

I find that closing with ancient curses is most pleasing. The letter will be in the post momentarily.

June 30

I’m not looking forward to tonight. At about 8pm, it will be precisely one year since I rolled my car on Parkes Way.

I still have a text message on my phone from that night. One of the first things I did after getting out of the car was (presumably in a slightly incoherent state of shock) call a friend to ask if they knew the number for a tow truck, which they promptly sent via text message. I have also just been re-reading some of the emails from around that date, including one in which I spelt out some events from that night, and the next day, which I had more-or-less forgotten about…it seems that such memories never disappear, they just get buried…reading those emails just brought back some visual memories which I wish were gone, and made me feel sick.

I think I might just go to bed early tonight. If I can be asleep by 8pm so that I completely miss the one year anniversary of the events of that night, I think I’ll be happy.
