Why do I not have any beer in the house.

That malfunction of mine is due directly to the absence of beer in the house.

Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees
And begged you not to leave because I'd go berserk?? Well . . .
You left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse
And now you see
I've gone completely out of my mind . . . And . . .
They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa
To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be
Happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats
And they're
Coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!

A strange true thing that I have discovered over the last few months.
Because of their high potassium levels, bananas are meant to prevent cramp.
Yet if I eat so much as one banana during the day, then I get cramp that night.
And the only time I generally get cramp is when I have eaten a banana.
This correlation is really easily observed because I do not eat bananas that often, nowhere near daily.
Weird.

Man, people sucker me into doing the most involved crap! Who on earth cares how much Chaucer's Poetical Works, published in 1891, will sell for? Oh wait, I do.

Mr. O'Malley needs to come out of his shell. Back to writing.

my seniors would not give 17 cents for chaucer's work.

they are hating the canterbury tales.

the wife of bath's tale has them totally confused.

when the knight took the maiden's maidenhead they thought he cut of her head!

started to explain it--then i thought--head? a little head? o--no. this is a lawsuit about to happen!

LIVIN, seriously, take some of mine. We've had, like, only three days of the last two months with no snow. SO tired of snow. And ice. And freezing rain. Ugh.

I haven't seen winter in two winters now. I'm starved for it, snow, sleet, cold, all of it. All the beauty, all the difficulty. It's a still, sedate difficulty. It doesn't come and take you away in a split-second without your say-so.

The loveliest UPS man just dropped a package off for me. He's fifty-something.

"So what do you think?" he asked me. "Storm gonna come?"

"I hope not. This stuff stops my heart."

He put his hand to his heart and said, ""Me too, tell the truth. Been here all my life, storms were just storms. Now it's Tornado Alley. I can't read the weather anymore."

We shook hands. "Be safe today," we said. He went on his way.


2000 words today so far. 2500 to go.

I made a fancy lunch today, worth the work.

The storms are here, we'll see how it goes.

A friend visited today and noticed how my elbow bones could stab someone. Let's go to the mirror and fold your arm up. Well, I guess. But it looks like maybe calcium deposits, she said. Do they hurt?

Yes they do. No wonder I'm still single. I'm skinny, and all me joints are sticking out. And here's the crazystorm. I'll stay on here till everything blows out, for comfort. Phone's already out.

In New England this would just be a storm one could marvel at. Not here.

Thanks. omg. Western Tennessee, between Jackson and the Kentucky border. We're on tornado watch till 5 am. You can't imagine how it is. These are not normal thunderstorms. They sit over you and go on and on, they don't move through, they take their time. Today while the sun was still out I saw purple cumulus clouds sitting in front of crazy white clouds of every shape, and behind them a navy blue wall.

You can walk down the street in the sun and come back under lightning without warning. It's nuts.

Now it's hailing. Jesus.

I don't think I've ever been more overwhelmed. 2 jobs, 6 classes, the prospect of death coming at me from all sides, all happening too rapidly for me to regain control. Still, life is beautiful. But am I going crazy?

Thanks for hanging on with me last night, kids. All okay in my neighborhood. Not okay everywhere else around us.

I cannot look at any of the news about last night. 47 dead so far.

I'm strung out and wrung out from 14 straight hours of pure fear.

But here I am.

A decision - cutting things short here and traveling home early. Enough.

spiralout

Do you WANT to be going crazy?

I don't think so. I just want to feel something completely different from what I've ever felt before. Regardless, I think it's sort of inevitable considering some of my circumstances. I very honestly don't know how some people don't break under this kind of pressure.

And three months ago, I was so sure of everything. Life was a smooth, well-oiled machine. Bad things all happen at once, don't they?

Hobbes
02-06-2008, 08:13 PM
They certainly seem to, but that's just the nature of bad things. Bad things are what we dwell on because they need to be reversed or at least "taken care of." The good things in life vanish quickly because we don't constantly think about them. We feel good for a bit and then something "bad" comes along and we concentrate on that.

Even a well-oiled machine needs a tune-up once in a while! :)

Hang in there.

Well. Lots of crazy in my family and they all think they're just fine.

During my divorce I had myself a gen-yoo-wine nervous breakdown, and I didn't know it till I was pretty much on the other side of it. Then I looked back and said, Oh wow, that's what that was.

So, all things considered, you're probably not losing it.

How long does it take to vomit out 14 hours of built-up fear adrenaline.

No lunch for me today.
