Media Blackout

Not counting WordPress (which would be biting off my nose to spite my face), I’m on a media blackout.  That covers yesterday, today and tomorrow.  I don’t want to hear about the inauguration.  I don’t want to see news about it.  I don’t want to look at photos of anyone.


I’m not pouting, I just feel super-saturated with the election coverage that seemed to last for 5 years.  And, on top of that, is the spectacle of the inauguration.

I’m politically exhausted.

Let’s see if I make it until Sunday.

    Michelle Obama had some fantastic facial expressions today. Spoiler Alert.

  4. I don’t plan to write about it. May do some more posts analyzing the Election itself, though…

    I did something similar. Went to my favorite park today, even though it was foggy and dreary and cold and wet. Would rather walk in the woods than watch today’s spectacle. I have avoided the news. Avoided facebook. Still a bit of it leaked in. I quickly turned away. I don’t want to know either. I don’t want to have to unsee. I guess you are right, I need to do this tomorrow too. Maybe even Sunday.

      I went back to the eye doctor this morning and the news was on in the waiting room. I just read a book. And was thankful that my vision was healed enough that I could read without it on font 8 million (I’m wildly exaggerating). So I was lost in my book.


  7. Understand completely Barb and I’m an Aussie – we are over saturated with the crapola here as well👌

    Understand perfectly. I’m suspending my NYT subscription for a few months. Their coverage is just too good, I started getting heartburn, need a break too. But I did get a good lift from looking at the footage from the Women’s Marches this morning 🙂

    Robins are nice this time of year. They are interested in worms and suet. They particularly dislike news. I’m with the robins. Well, except for the worms and suet.
