I’m a tuna person.
Canned tuna, to be precise.
I don’t love tuna. Don’t hate it either.
But it’s the cheapest meat-substitute to buy on my budget.
Or rather, it WAS the cheapest.
A tin of tuna that I used to buy for approx £0.32 is now double that and up.
Other foods that I normally buy have gone up somewhat and I’m thinking of making my own toilet roll or opting out of shitting altogether. 🙂
I know Britain’s economy is kinda topsy-turvy at the mo’. Same goes for other economies around the world.
I get that.
But what I can’t stand is being constantly bombarded with news about it.
I really don’t think the media’s helping with their non-stop reportage about the economy. It’s almost as if, everyday, they’re hoping another company will go under, that unemployment figures will go up further, that share prices will drop again.
I promised myself, when all the news first kicked off about the economy, that I wouldn’t listen to it after a while – because I knew the media would get all obsessively gloomy about it – it’s what they do – and I didn’t want my psyche to be affected by it, I didn’t want to absorb the fear, the doom-and-gloomism they were projecting.
And I guess what’s pissing me off a bit is as much as I’ve flicked channels to avoid yet another dose of fear-laden journalism, I’ve still absorbed their ‘oh shit, we’re all fucked’ mentality to some extent.
I’m gonna keep on shimmying forward though….inspite of it.
Have a grrrrrreat week, y’all.
