Haute Culture

From a recent dream: "The $race have brought the world $goodthing1, $goodthing2, and $goodthing3" "Yes, and also $badthing" "You are a filthy racist!" .. Like much in the way of dreams, I can't remember the specifics, but I find it irritating when people conflate race and culture, and thus mark cultural criticism as beingracist. It gets a little ridiculous when subsets of people who do that still feel comfortable praising cultures.

Even more ridiculous is Tony Blair's charge that the Tories are "devoid of political conviction", given Tony Blair having been a major figure in stripping the Labour party of its principles with "New Labour". Amazing chutzpah.. It's going to be interesting to see if Blair's weakening of the Labour party will lead to significant growth of seperatist parties (and/or speed devolution) in Wales or Scotland.

My stomach is very confused.. over 24 hours without food should result in hunger, I think... I've been full for over a week though, and should give this waiting for hunger idea a go.
