I am, it appears, a giant napkin 

A casual lunch outing with the girls ended up looking like a terrible, tragic knife fight as I returned covered in ketchup and chocolate ice cream stains from head to toe. The baby has discovered the concept of dipping foods into other foods at the same time as she's discovered sharing. Thus, I was required to sample such wondrous concotions as carrot sticks dipped in ketchup and "sugar packet with ranch dressing." Mmm...you just don't know what you're missing there. But the important thing is that we managed to get out of the house and have a passably good time for about the first time in a week. Slowly,slowly I am beginning to regain my sanity...

Theme of the day, I guess... 

I think depression is contagious, like yawning. I catch it so easily from others. I wish they would catch happiness from me instead.

I'm apparently too presumptious part II 

Came to the epiphany that it's useless to be jealous of friends and acquaintances who have turned chance oppurtunities into worthwhile careers. Perhaps it's not that I haven't "been given the right chances." Perhaps I've just failed to recognize and take advantage of them. There's a certain talent in just that ability itself. Time to wake up and harvest the roses. My niche is out there, I simply have yet to find it.

Happy Little Zoloft drops... 

Zoloft ads have infiltrated basically every entertainment media I frequent. The final straw was when I saw one today during "Guiding Light." Yes, I watch "Guiding Light," so sue me. It was the commercial for the Social Anxiety little Zoloft drop. There's also the Depression Zoloft drop and the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Zoloft drop. They're such darling little disembodied heads. You really root for them to take their medicine so they can be all happy and cute like the other disembodied heads. I suppose I'm being marketed to. Apparently I'm not the only one.This cannot be a good sign...

Which little Zoloft drop are you?

Sick... 

Imprisoned at home with two sick children in Disney channel purgatory for the second day running. Clawing at the walls longing to escape. Desperately in need of adult conversation,but no one's reachable today...

Oh well, at least they're cute sick children. I shall cuddle with them and in the meantime take comfort in this Young Ones sketch.

It's just like the Fourth of July 

Apparently Guy Fawkes Day is the cause of much fireworks idiocy in Britain,Australia and other former denizens of the British Empire. And we thought we had the market cornered on fireworks idiocy here in the U.S.

Guy Fawkes Day 


Remember Remember the fifth of Novemeber
The gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes Guy, 'twas his intent
to blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
to prove old England's overthrow.
By God's mercy he was catched
with a dark lantern and lighted match.
Holler boys Holler boys let the bells ring
Holler boys Holler boys God save the King

"Peachy keen" 

My resolution for immediate future is to be more like Death in the Sandman comics. Joyful and accepting in the face of of the complications and gravity of life. A gothpunk,ankh wearing little ray of sunshine.

In case the email wasn't enough, I shall now publicly embarrass her... 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY,TINA!!!

Something that doesn't suck... 

Try putting cubes of cooked potato in with the ground beef when you make tacos. Better yet,use ground lamb and potatoes and add cinnamon. Trust me on this.

I was serious... 

About the depression part. I've been wearing the same pair of mangy cutoffs for three days now.I have gotto snap out of this. Ok. Douglas Adams quotes,then.

The Great Depression 

Life continues to suck. Sandman quotes are in order.
