09:28 am - Fifty Shades of Argh
So, about a month ago, I decided to sign up for NaNo Camp, hoping to catch up with my writing. And then (of course) things happened here in Greece. I'm sure everyone (and their cats) knows about them and there goes my NaNo effort.

I have a lot to say about the recent developments, most of them consisting of four letter words, so I'll just keep my silence until a more articulate post can be posted. But I have one thing I need to get out of my chest: Our 'saviours' apparently believe that the economy will be saved if they raise the tax on cat food and cat litter. And they have also raised the tax on tampons and other feminine health products. Well, if someone isn't already calling this te "pussy tax", well, they should.

Oh, and they've also raised the tax on condoms. This is so many ways of facepalm I can't even begin.

Excuse me now, I need to contact my Swiss bank to request funds for kitty litter. And then, perhaps, I might be able to catch up with my writing.

All the new measures they're proposing are preposterous!!Like you, if I get started, I can think of many 4 letter words, so I am trying very hard to stay civil!!:/

Instead of upping taxes in high-end hotels, cafes, restaurants and the like and instead of taxing things like tobacco and alcohol and luxury items-like oh boats, maybe, hello?-they're increasing taxes on pads and condoms and pasta...how brilliant are they? NOT!:/
