what a waster, what a fucking waster

i’m listening to The Libertines at top volume in a desperate attempt to keep my brain from atrophying. i knew it was gonna be quiet and boring, but i had no idea how quiet and boring.

i had a beautiful reprieve of a lunch with FFJ and lovely Miss Viv (who is something like eight months old now). we talked about her impending trip to Phoenix and my utter restless crabbiness. it’s just that time of year, i think it happens to a lot of us Northerners. it’s that time where we’re just fed up, and done with winter. doesn’t matter how hard or easy the winter is. long about that last week in february, there ain’t anything that’s gonna make you happy. your skin doesn’t fit right and you don’t want to be anywhere or do anything. you just want to pound your fists in frustration at the utter crabbiness of everything.

or, at least that’s how i’ve been feeling. not even a turkey burger from Ruby Tuesday’s could make things better. i have that panicky feeling in my chest like if something doesn’t happen soon i will surely die from the complete and total boringness of my own pathetic existence.

    I feel bad that your friends aren’t there. God knows I know how it feels to not have the highlights of work not show up. Have you ever had one of those questions that you just can’t answer? Mine is the scenario when you take a year off from your life. Where do you go, and what do you do? Too many choices damnit! Anyway…
    I dare you to try to answer your unanswerable question. Even if you don’t answer it, you’ll probably being giving your brain a hard enough time that it won’t completely abandon you.

    Cabin Fever…tis a bitch.

    I catch it around the first of every year & by March swear I’m moving south…but then I never do.

    Books are about the only thing that help. Read something warm.

    sheesh…i feel like i let you down, although not as much as the turkey burger did. you didn’t even mention the mini-vodo at the front door. here is what i’m doing to stay sane…
    – take a walk outside…yep i bundled up Boo and took a quick spin round the block today. cold, but it helped.
    – put the first season of some lame ass show in your netflix queue…like i dunno gilmore girls or le femme nikita. i’m crushing all over keifer in the first season of 24 right now.
    – get a manicure – like a real fancy one. and don’t give me any, “it’s not worth it” bullshit. i spent $25 on these talons and it lasted a day. besides when the polish starts to chip you can pick it off.
    – go out to a movie…i love heading to the theatre myself, because i can eat whatever i want. i’m not suggesting brokeback mountian or anything, cuz that will just make you cry. but there has to be something sappy out there for ya.
    – notice that i didn’t number these, so there is no number five?
    ok, i’m done.

    While doing a vanity search on Google I stumbled upon your site. I found it quite interesting. I, too, am a book person. However, when I reviewed your list I only found one in common…Bone. 🙂

    Bye,
    Mike
