This morning’s post is going to have next to no editing, since I’m just not in the mood for it right now. This last evening, I’ve been saturating myself with the reports and videos, courtesy of the BBC, coming out of Japan about the recent disaster smorgasbord of tsunami, earthquakes and the threat of nuclear meltdown.

It’s been estimated that upwards of thousands have been killed, and others are without power, fresh water, even homes, that last having in many cases simply been swept away by the 10 meter high wall of water that inundated the coastline.

And if you are one of those assholes who think that this was retribution for Pearl Harbor as some idiots have ranted, then I can only offer an unqualified, unequivocal, hearty ‘F*ck You, you sorry bigoted sacks of sh*t.’

No, I’m in a most uncharacteristic mood right now, because in addition to one of the worst catastrophes in history having happened to one of my favorite Asian nations, the other two being India and the Philippines, one of my two surviving cats has recently come down with Azathoth knows what and we have to have her taken to the vets later on this morning.

Misty is an old kitteh, going on 15 years, and I’ve grown rather attached to her after Sammy passed last year. Losing two cats in as many years is gonna be rough on me, but to be honest, I kind of expected it to happen.

But I’m not going to pray to some imaginary anthropomorphic sky fairy to bless it and make it better, since that NEVER worked even when I believed, and I have no reason to think it will now. Life sucks, but I’d rather look it in the eyes as it is than kid myself that it will just all magically get better, and that all will be sweetness and light.

I no longer believe in a personal god for what I see as very good reasons, and I’m not going to believe now either, desperate situation or not. There’s no sense in lying to myself just to feel good. If I was doing military service right now, rest assured that I would be one of those atheists in foxholes that peeps claim don’t exist.

Despair sucks, but there’s a benefit to seeing the world as it really is, for what doesn’t kill me makes me wiser if not stronger. And that’s a good thing.

(Update 2011/03/16)

Well, the poor sick kitty has been checked and found to have nothing life-threatening going on, just an infected tooth, which yesterday afternoon was removed. At least her kidneys aren’t going just yet, so she’s got more time left among the living, thank Hastur, Hastur, Hastur… *Ahem* Anyhoo, she should be fine, and she’s got meds for the next couple of days to deal with the soreness. That’s one weight off my chest, but I still have a low tolerance for the bigots who are babbling that the Japanese had it coming. *Grrrr* I have very little patience for people who say idiotic sh*t for media pandering at the misfortune of others…
