And You Might Say it’s Self-Indulgent

It’s been a rough week. There are so many things to look forward to (When I started this parenthetical aside I wasn’t planning on recounting, but who cares? I’m stoked for Veronica Mars, BSG, and Lucky 10-Key coming to visit…) but I’m feeling like crap. Nothing seems to be going right at work. I’m busy after work with other commitments, and that throws off my regularly scheduled programming and my metabolic clock. I’ve been listening to depressing songs again and I’m on the verge of tears. I could use a nap. How about you?

I would attempt humor, but I’m afraid it’s going to come off more bitter than ever before. I hope to clear myself of the mope as fast as possible. Anger and stress is bad for the complexion and is the number one leading cause of premature aging.

On that note, smile! I wrote a Mad Lib for Queen of Anagrams a while ago. I’m glad I saved it for a rainy day.

The Office Mad Lib

2 people: Jim and Pam
2 verbs: dancing and smiling
2 adjectives: beautiful and happy
2 places: the mall and Rio de Janeiro
2 nouns: jello and tattoos
2 colors: black and pink
1 food or drink: mocha latte
1 time of day: dusk
1 hobby: skydiving
1 job: jingle writer

Jim brought Pam a mocha latte on Monday morning. No one is happy on Mondays, so he thought it would be a step up from her normal black coffee. Pam said, “Thanks!” smiling ear to ear, her infatuation and desire dancing in her eyes. Pam tried extra hard to look beautiful for Jim that day. She’d bought a pink sweater set at the mall over the weekend. Throughout dusk approached, Jim convinced Pam to help him play a prank on Dwight. It was hard work making so much jello, but the two of them hadn’t had so much fun since the time they went skydiving! To commemorate the event they got matching tattoos…where the sun don’t shine 🙂

    I can totally relate to you…. the stress on the JOB, sad songs, October blues, trying to make a left turn on Bath Street….. I can’t help but think about Bridget Jones Diary and her little misfortunes in life and when I do that I start smiling.So giddy up because there is always TIVO and the Dresden Dolls!

    I feel terrible that you are feeling like crap. I wish there was something I could say, some way to help you feel better! I have been there on the work front. This week is the 1st time in a LONG time that I am not stressing or feeling like I there is never enough time. Kiele Sanchez was not on LOST last night. I can’t figure out if I liked it last night or not. Did you watch any good tv yesterday? I hope you did. 🙂

    Girl Friday, I can relate. Once exhaustion sets in, it can be tough to kick. I, personally, enjoy a good wallow from time to time – if my bedroom door’s shut and some emo music is blasting, you can be sure I am reverting back to adolescence.
