A Cure for the Blahs
How's life going, friends? Is summer treating you right? Are you enjoying balmy days at the beach, moonlight swims with your significant other, cosy evenings with witty friends, trips to exotic locales? Or are you like the rest of us, complaining about the unseasonable weather and buried under onerous tasks?
If you're feeling stressed, we at the Post feel your pain. And we're going to do something about it.
According to more than one expert – okay, they're all self-appointed, these experts – laughter is, indeed, the best medicine. For which reason we have loaded the Post with astounding humour that will cause you to belly-laugh your way into health and happiness.
This has absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that we're short copy this week. Nothing at all. The fact that our contributors are either out having a good time, or are home recovering from having a good time, and haven't gotten around to telling us about it yet, is completely irrelevant. That's our story, and we're sticking to it.
Even with half of h2g2 on a plane somewhere, or out barbecuing, we still have fresh Stuff. There's nature art from Willem, probing political commentary from benjaminpmoore, and a report from the Reims Meet. Oh, and Anthea's got a new duck.
The pièce de resistance, of course, is the blockbuster cinema news of the summer from Awix: Jason Statham is BACK! In a thrilling new film. Only Awix can do this event full justice, so we won't try. Besides, the last time we said anything about Mr Statham, Awix got all snarky about being highbrow, and keeps mentioning the word 'opera' in an ironic way. We think this movie sounds like fun, although he didn't mention whether the nun did any singing.
So relax, friends. If you're feeling down, we've got the cure. If you're having a good time, good on you – remember to write and tell us about it.
