Zu viel regen über dem Paradis

Today is going to be a fantastically different day for me. I don't usually judge day's based on what I do necessarily, because I tend to accomplish a rather wide variety of tasks during the day. Rather, I look at days with a more critical eye than most - that being, how I feel.

As a self-proclaimed optimist and light-to-the-world I carry the burden of the responsibility of other's happiness on my shoulders. I feel, however, that all that is going to be flushed down the toilet today. Its not that I'm in a bad mood - no sir; so rarely to I have those its hard to remember how they feel. And its not that I'm angry either (which happens on occasion - no need for alarm). Rather, I'm feeling...mischievous. To the point I've been accused of being downright negative. Me? Say it isn't so. However, it must be true - two people have told me this within the span of twelve hours.

My world is dust now,
And all I loved is dead.
Oh, let me trust now
In what my master said:
"There is a sweetness in every woe."
It must be so. It must be so.


Being "off my meds" so to speak, the world is suddenly a blank canvas. Whatever shall I do? More cowbell. If I'm not acting within my usual parameters, I certainly can't be expected to pretend its not the case. The only course then, is action! Where to start, then?

  1. I used the passing of Arthur C. Clarke to link two unrelated denominations together: I make it a rule to not care if I get one psycho-whackjob religion confused with another.

  2. I studied up on the aptly-named anonymous activist group, Anonymous.

  3. I spun my vehicle around in lake of white mud throwing it across the entire width and breadth of my car. It now looks that I was in a rally race. The guard at the front gate into the plant even asked me what I'd done.

  4. I am dying for any reason whatsoever to call someone, "walrus-looking" even if its unjustified. That has just been eating at me all day long!


In other news, for those of you who read it, I apologize for you seeing this again, depressing as it is, but I wanted to share it with those who don't read xkcd:




And now I have something like four simultaneous projects that I want to start and finish, immediately. I think I'll get myself a Monster and buckle down...and listen to The Hunt for Red October oover and over again.

Too much rain over Paradise.

And thank you for the opportunity to unburden myself with that.

Hmmm, That comic is so true, yet as the good people that we are we have responsibilities that we just have to live with. (hangs head) It is wearing me out, sucking the life out of both of us.

It's on an approach vector to Truth, but I don't think the word "negative" quite hits the mark.

Maybe... Dickish? Adversarial? Contrary?

Perhaps, I do like the word dickish, but I think adversarial fits better.

Adversarialy Dickish, perhaps?

Hmm. I think your universe is a chiral image of my own. Or maybe they're just skeined together through blended interests and purpose.

Either way, I've had similar days.

Interesting!
You're very seldom anything but...chipper(?)!

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Nobody liked me this week. I had to eat worms.

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
Guess I'll go eat worms,
Long, thin, slimy ones; Short, fat, juicy ones,
Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm.
Up comes the first one, up comes the second one,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

I LIKE YOU! ;)

(and I find that hard to believe!)
