The Fair to Middlin' Thread

A place for myself to post the comics storyline in prose form, plus a current comic discussion and most likely some random threads.

The Fair to Middlin' Thread

Postby Garneta on Sun Jan 13, 2008 9:01 pm

I guess we really DO need one of these threads...I went back and forth for awhile over whether to post some of this in the happy thread or the unhappy thread...but neither seemed really right, and I'd been the last to post in the Post the Time thread, so I couldn't put it there either (Hell, I'd already edited that post earlier today so that I wouldn't double-post in it). So here's a new thread. Be nice to it...don't kick dirt on it or steal it's lunch money or anything.

My hours have been cut again at work. But I need a break, and really don't think I could handle being around customer/co-worker type people right now anyway...when I get this upset about something, an abundance of people always makes me claustrophobic/trapped/whatever. So instead of wanting my hours back, I feel very 'blah' about it, and am planning on calling unemployment tomorrow to see about their policy on part-time compensation.

I'm writing something right now. A single LJ post that I've been working on all day. It's at the same time making me feel reminiscent in the good way, and upset that what I'm writing about is all over. But then I think about the post I made earlier, and that kinda takes care of both those feelings. Trying to distance myself from the whole thing, and it's actually working at times...instead of crying over something that I've been bawling over for three days, I'm feeling nice and 'apart' from it instead.

I'm exhausted from the writing, and probably need to go sleep, but I don't really feel like it. Might stay up later instead, and continue working.

There was some other stuff I was gonna post on the forums, but I forget what it was...eh, oh well.

I don't have any groceries in the house...but it's 11:00 at night, so I'm not too worried about that.

I just finished my tea, but I'm too lazy to get up and make a new cup.

I've started drawing again but I don't like it. I'm pretty out of practice.

I'm listening to Moulin Rouge! but my family is around so I can't sing Ewan McGregor's part really loudly.

Ditto for Janis Joplin. The blues always make me happy.

I was singing one of the songs from Moulin Rouge today.

King of Queens is on. I don't like that show, but it's background noise at least.

"Why live life from dream to dream and dread the day when dreaming ends?" Whenever I dwell too much on death, this is one of the songs I listen to.

I ate some pretzels, but now I'm thirsty.

I'm going to try to go to bed. Bed sounds great but I stayed up too late last night.

I'm crampy, but I've taken some pills and it's going (I think) away.

I've had them off and on for a few days now. They're just about gone at the moment, though!

Well, I watched some little kids today at my church's pre-school. None of them wanted to play with me but I had fun anyways. The whole time I was there I had on about three shirts and a beanie hat. When I took off my hat before school ended, one kid whispered to his teacher, "That boy looks like a girl". About me. I had to hit my friend Jim so that he would stop laughing. It is perfectly okay for you guys to laugh as well. Being tall with short hair and no fashion sense sets me up for these things.

A friend of mine's grandfather had a big surgery today. He had a blood clot in the back of his head. I was really worried today. He's fine now.

That's good! (That he's fine, that is...not the surgery part, that part's scary!)

Ah, Hell Week. The time when everything comes together (usually around opening night or so).

If at all. I'm worried about a few things. We have no aquarium, the sound system is still a piece of crap, and there's a huge hole in the curtain from Romeo and Juliet when it got stuck.
