I'm Bored

I don't often do what EVERYBODY DOES and just use this space to sound off about the petty complaints of my life. If I am going to moan, I like to go for the full howl.

Today I realised, having been exasperated, frustrated, tense and generally dissatisfied for a while, having been sighing and muttering and feeling lethargic and then pacing the room that the PROFOUND reason for this is that I am doing the same few things too often and I AM JUST SIMPLY BORED.

This is a bad state of mind because I either implode or explode after too long being BORED. I start to find perfectly acceptable things insufficient; I begin to feel mild psychosis if it goes unchecked. ANYTHING is better than this, I tell myself (it isn't). Even my creative work feels BORING. The place I am, inside and outside - BORING. I'm sure I am doing everything well enough and it's probably what I should be doing but Jesus, it's not exactly thrilling me right now.

I am now boring to myself, I am so bored.

Take it away Iggy, very far away, and chuck it into your endless boring sea:

I'm Bored

 I'm bored

I'm the chairman of the bored,
I'm a lengthy monologue
I'm livin' like a dog

I'm bored

I bore myself to sleep at night
I bore myself in broad daylight coz

I'm bored
Just another slimey bore

I'm free to bore my well-bought friends
And spend my cash until the end coz

I'm bored
I'm bored

I'm the chairman of the board

I'm sick
I'm sick of all my kicks
I'm sick of all the stiffs
I'm sick of all the dips

I'm bored

I bore myself to sleep at night
I bore myself in broad daylight coz

I'm bored
I'm bored

Just another dirty bore

All right doll-face
Come on and bore me

I'm sick
I'm sick of all my kicks
I'm sick of all the stiffs
I'm sick of all the dips

I'm sick

I'm sick when I go to sleep at night
I'm still sick in the broad daylight coz

I'm bored
I'm bored

I'm the chairman of the. . .

BORED!

Better bored by life than bored by a fist. Fact.

I don't know about that, Fist. If you were called Fact, you could say that it was better being bored by life than by Facts. Then you could do the Fist gesture for emphasis, which would be really boring.

after all, it gives the impression that you've written something so interesting that everyone has something to say

but, instead you get a few comments, then replies, then a few more, then replies - all pith witty or playful of course - not boring, like this

i mean, just wittering on in my own comments, who the fuck do i think i am talking to? myself? how boring is that!

at least the comments are actually WORKING now - GOD it's so boring waiting for Blogger comments to work - but really, this is not only pointless, it's contrived, vacuous and ultimately BORING

somebody just rang me up and said, who was i going to vote for in the coming election. i said, whoever is the most boring. send them round, i'll see how quickly they bore me. if they REALLY bore me, i'll vote for them boringly again and again until i die.

isn't that boring?

I sense boredom, here. It was well stated, wrapped up nicely in a grand package w/ bows and shoved off neat and tucked up well, as all of your writings are wont to be. Sometimes they are so tight I cannot step in to offer any comment because it is wraped so well. I enjoy your writing, historic, interesting and tight.

went to sleep last night, bored. i dreamt i was in tube train. one stop after another passed by. we were crammed in. it was stultifyingly boring. eventually after several hours, the train stopped. we got off and walked towards the up escalator. standing on the escalator, i was moving upwards slowly and saying nothing. i was very bored. then after an impossibly long ascent, i found myself in a laundromat where i had to wash and dry a huge amount of clothes. i just sat and watched the washers and driers going round and round and round. what a boring dream.

Don't worry about it mate. We were all very bored at work yesterday and pacing around wondering whether to kill ourselves or run amok in Soho. We did neither cos we were busy being boring to each other.

dear god, deek. you have whored yourself on your own comment page. in the most gloriously adorable way ever. i'm sick in the head because instead of finding this boring, i find it entertaining. la-dee-dah.

Hey Derek, I found this blog really cool. I was looking for the lyrics and you had them. Well done mate - at least you have brightened up my day

Am I allowed to post something if I don't know you? oh well I guess I'm going to anyway. I typed "I'm bored as fuck" into my search engine and came upon your lovely blog. Just wanted to say I was happy to find someone who could make boredom sound at least poetic, even it was boring. Have a good day with your boredom.

i am currently at school and the teacher is up at the board misspronouncing hamburger would you believe. I cannot believe how highly unqualified she is, and i am sure there is something significant missing upstairs.

woah hey ive been here before lol oh thats right i forgot what the point was lol but i remembered now lol

last night i was watching freddy got fingered when my brother came bounding in saying LONDONS BEEN BOMBED PEOPLE DEAD EVERYWHERE!!! i though what the hell is he talking about and put it on channel 1. sure enough, there was all the stuff about the bus bombings and stuff. trying to get out of doing my english homework that was due in today (which i did btw) i stayed up until like 11 30 watching it. Then i got hungry so i got some cornflakes. mmmm i feel like cornflakes now...... oh what, back to the subject.

any way when i stumbled across this site again i happened to look at the place you were from deek, which was london so i decided to put in a comment and see if you were alright. I could have made this soooo much shorter, but i am very bored and this is mildly entertaining.

SO ANYWAY how are you deek?

Does anyone else think Allenna Williams Ward (pictured here) , the high school teacher who had sex with 5 of her 14-15 year old students, is hot?
