21 September 2010

Really discouraged... [More:] I wrote it all out once but decided not to go into details. Just feeling depressed and bluesy tonight.

I'm just tired of all the shit going on, both locally and in the world. Let's just leave it at that.

I'm sorry. Big hugs.

Man, me too. Had a great day then got really disheartened on my way out of work. So I came home and ate some cheese. It didn't help.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

So sorry for your discouragement, Doohickie.

I was feeling pretty low last week, with a bad case of "why even goddamn bother?" about events local and global. I'm happy to report that a lot of that cloud has lifted, in part because I kept goddamn-bothering just as if I had a reason to do so.

Keep your chin up.

We all have days like this, sometimes the only thing you can do is just get out of bed the next morning and keep on keepin' on.

I'm right there with ya, brother. Let's mope ourselves into pools of butter.

Oooh, pools of butter. Now I will go make popcorn. Mmmm, popcorn makes everything better for the ten minutes that I'm actually eating popcorn. Then it's back to normal. Whatevs. At least I get popcorn!

Popcorn! So jealous. Without a microwave, I never get to eat popcorn. And yes, yes, I know, I "could" make popcorn on the stove. But I don't like it on the stove! I like it from the microwave! WOOOOOOOOE IS MEEEEEEEEEEEE! Eat extra for me.

If I lost a pound for every time I ate my entire large popcorn before the previews finished...

Can do! The Fella taught me to make popcorn in the wok, which is (mysteriously magically) better than making it in a big pot.

do not read if you have severe popcorn jealousy: I miiiiiight even try making kettle corn.

Oh, man. Good popcorn really takes the blues away. You know what's really good If you've been trying to "eat better" and then you go to a theater that has real butter on their popcorn... it's just AMBROSIA, I tell you.

You can have your "kettle" corn, madam! Popcorn is not supposed to be sweet!

Ugh, I have had a crappy couple of days myself. Soak some popcorn in butter and eat it for me!

Thanks guys, I knew you'd pull me up.

You're the best.

I'm late, of course. But this group is good for bringing one out of the doldrums, eh Doohickie?

PS: I had popcorn for dinner from our new popper. It was good.

Not too late, deborah. I'm still up. ;-)

Boy, I hear ya, Doohickie. Sometimes, the crud just gets too high, doesn't it? I got in on the Roots Coffeehouse Groupon if you wanna meet up for a coffee. Sometimes it helps to get out of the house.

Oh! You're in Tarrant County, toastedbeagle? I didn't know. I've never been to Roots- kind of on the other side of town.

My night out is gonna be the Critical Mass ride on Friday night. Should be fun.

Another thing to the thread in general: One of the things that's getting me down is we're just tired of our house and neighborhood and would like to move. One thing that's keeping us from moving is that I'm in the middle of retiling the kitchen floor. I've found that laying tile is a good way to feel like I'm making progress toward a goal.
